The Newest files to take aim at clinton don’t involve third party websites or any hacking, but it comes from the fingertips of one of the nation’s most harshly criticized handlers of the Clinton Server investigation.
I’m talking about the FBI, who dropped the ball in July after not indicting Hillary clinton despite all the evidence dumped by Me and other journalists.
Well, It looks like they have decided to release the notes taken during the Early July interview of Clinton, and they contain some disturbing info.
Not only does it show Clinton’s blatant lies about the Email server use, but also her lack of knowledge on handling and receiving classified info.
In this multi part series, we will look into these notes and expose the lies and incompetence of Clinton.
The First page shows the Account of the communications setup at the State Department, which contained a secure / unsecure blackberry and 2 secure landlines for government business.
No computers were being used during Clinton’s tenure at the State Department at the office. A SCIF was also used at her Home in NY.
It was also found that she had several unsecured phones and an unsecured server in her NY home.
Some Documents, which the contents are unknown, were placed in a “burn bag.” Some reports state that Official state Department Calendars used by clinton were burned.
Just two weeks after we exposed the fact that Hillary Clinton’s official calendar is “missing” a lot of entries, more ‘illegal’ allegations are being exposed from her reign as Secretary of State.
In a deposition last week, NYPost reports that Hillary Clinton’s cloests aide – Huma Abedin – revelaed that her boss destroyed at least some of her schedules as secretary of state — a revelation that could complicate matters for the presumptive Democratic nominee, who, along with the State Department she ran, is facing numerous lawsuits seeking those public records.
Clinton also had no technical support as related to secure communications.
For the First Email, The email in question is titled “Fw: Congratulations!” that was apparently sent from Russia, in which the contents of the email are unknown, since the email cannot be found.
Clinton states that she had received no prior guidance as to how to use the presidential email address and that it was likely sent from the plane. It should also be noted that she potentially received no training as to handling sensitive presidential email information.
For the 2nd email, 3/22/09, Clinton admits that this was to determine how her files would be stored and relayed at the State Dept. IN the Senate, she did maintain a Personal paper file.
The process was implemented through her OWN personal process, not at the senate process and was unaware of the SMART tool used at the state, which failed.
During Clinton’s tenure, records management issues plagued the wider department. A system introduced in 2009 called State Messaging and Archive Retrieval Toolkit (SMART) was designed to allow staff to preserve emails and cables using Microsoft Outlook. The system stores the documents centrally, and permits employees department-wide to view record material, although there are ways to compartmentalize access.
“SMART… was a multi-year effort to move away from what was a text-based, telegram-type messaging system,” then-CIO Susan Swart said in a 2012 interview with Government CIO. “And it was the way we did all of our formal communications between agencies, our posts overseas, and the State Department.”
Essentially, SMART grew out of the all-caps diplomatic cable, and provided foreign service officers and others in State’s globe-spanning operation access to a multimedia-friendly tool for disseminating formal communications and reports throughout the agency. According to the OIG report, some postings were active in retaining records on the system, while at other embassies and consulates, it appeared to be a low priority.
In the 3rd Email of this page, which is a big note here, States that Clinton did not recall when she got Security clearance nor was it transferred to the state from her Senate Seat.
She also didn’t recall that she had any training in handling classified information as Secretary of State.
She failed to correctly identify how a classified document was marked and had gotten rid of a system in place that would determine if a message was classified, which left thousands of documents at risk.
She also had SAPs in her Home and reportedly, on her private Server, according to the July 10th anonymous AMA on 4chan.
CLitnon had no process for nominating a target for drone strikes, nor could remember a role for the DoD, State and CIA for drone strikes, hinting at the potential that there was none. She also stated that she thought they were not classified material. That will come up in another part.
The vaguely worded messages didn’t mention the “CIA,” “drones” or details about the militant targets, officials said.
The still-secret emails are a key part of the FBI investigation that has long dogged Mrs. Clinton’s campaign, these officials said.
They were written within the often-narrow time frame in which State Department officials had to decide whether or not to object to drone strikes before the CIA pulled the trigger, the officials said.
Law-enforcement and intelligence officials said State Department deliberations about the covert CIA drone program should have been conducted over a more secure government computer system designed to handle classified information.
State Department officials told FBI investigators they communicated via the less-secure system on a few instances, according to congressional and law-enforcement officials. It happened when decisions about imminent strikes had to be relayed fast and the U.S. diplomats in Pakistan or Washington didn’t have ready access to a more-secure system, either because it was night or they were traveling.
This article also contradicts the next statement, in which Clinton states that she discussed these matters over secure calls.
The next few statements go on to state about the use of Clinton’s blackberry, in which she denied a state department cell:
It also states that she never lost a blackberry while traveling, despite using 13 of them during a 4 year period.
That will become more relevant the deeper we get.
ON the 4th page, Clinton had told aides to use “judgement” when emailing information to determine classified information and not classified. She does not remember when a complaint about this was received, nor did she recall ANY.
Some of this classified info was transmitted in-person between personnel and Clinton.
Here’s a biggie. Let’s create a list for the next paragraph.
- Had a Private AT&T email for Official Use in the Senate.
- Husband also had a Private email server for aides.
- No specific examples of conversations of clinton email server.
- Created at request in 2009.
- ALL MEMBERS KNEW OF THE SERVER BUT HAD NO PERMISSION TO DO SO.
So, in conclusion, Clinton’s email use was rooted back into the senate and even, potentially, in the presidency of Bill Clinton. The use was well known, but no concerns were ever raised for unknown reasons.
She had also talked to Colin Powell about the use of a personal email account, in which she was warned against it.
Aides also had access to Clintonemail.com accounts run by Hillary, but no other emails were sent to the AT&T account. It is not known who specifically had access to these emails or had an account on the domain.
On the 5th page, Clinton explains that she had no knowledge of the hardware, software or security of the server that was used. However, she did receive odd looking emails but was not concerned about the messages. An article here reports:
Though riddled with redactions, the FBI report reveals that Clinton became concerned about the legitimacy of an e-mail purportedly sent to her “from the personal e-mail of a State official.” The e-mail sent to Clinton, the FBI noted, “contained a potentially malicious link.”
In reply to the suspect e-mail, Clinton wrote, “Is this really from you? I was worried about opening it!” The FBI report does not indicate to which e-mail account Clinton sent her response.
At one point, Clinton aide Huma Abedin wrote to an associate indicating that Clinton was concerned about someone “hacking into her email” since Clinton had received an e-mail from a “known…associate” containing “a link to a website with pornographic material.”
While the FBI report does not state how Clinton knew the link in the suspect e-mail led to porn, it appears obvious that she clicked on the link.
More of this will be covered in another part.
.Abedin also had a clintonemail.com account, to assist Hillary in personal matters.
State Gmail accounts that were compromised in 2011 were not recalled by clinton. (Which raises the question of why gmail was used in the first place)
Clinton also had no involvement of the moving of the system’s network from Apple to a private server. She had no knowledge of the installation or setup of the server, and denied any intention to avoid FOIA requests.
More will be coming in the next few days.
