Former Joint Chiefs of Staff Vice Chairman General James E. Cartwright Pleaded Guilty to Felony Charge of Lying to the FBI During Investigation Into the Leaking of Classified Information and Could Face Jail Time
UNBELIEVABLE … GENERAL JAMES CARTWRIGHT PLEADS GUILTY OF LYING TO FBI AND FACES JAIL TIME, YET HILLARY CLINTON WALKED FREE FOR DOING FAR MORE …
To borrow a phrase from Obama and Hillary Clinton … how come Hillary didn’t have to pay her fair share for the crimes she committed?
Its a sick, corrupt world we live in under the Obama Administration as former Joint Chiefs of Staff Vice Chairman General James E. Cartwright pleased guilty to the felony charge of lying to the FBI during its investigation into the leaking of classified information about covert operations against Iran to two journalists. Under his plea deal, Cartwright could face up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine. UNREAL. Hillary Clinton committed far worse crimes, including lying to the FBI during the investigation of the use of her private email server, let alone the use of the server containing classified US documents and the cover up and deletion of 33,000 emails after having been subpoenaed. And the FBI did nothing even though there was an obvious mountain of evidence against her. But that is what happens when we have a corrupt FBI playing politics and covering for Democrat Hillary Clinton. Now they and the Justice Department felt they needed a scalp to make themselves look good. Sorry, you both look even more corrupt and pathetic.
He used to be Obama’s favorite general … look where that got him. I guess he should have run for president
The Obama administration Justice Department has investigated three senior officials for mishandling classified information over the past two years but only one faces a felony conviction, possible jail time and a humiliation that will ruin his career: former Joint Chiefs of Staff vice chairman General James E. Cartwright. The FBI’s handling of the case stands in stark contrast to its treatment of Hillary Clinton and retired General David Petraeus — and it reeks of political considerations.
Monday marked a stunning fall from grace for Cartwright, the man once known as “Obama’s favorite general,” who pleaded guilty to the felony charge of lying to the FBI during its investigation into the leaking of classified information about covert operations against Iran to two journalists. His lawyer Greg Craig said in a statement that Cartwright spoke with David Sanger of the New York Times and Dan Klaidman of Newsweek as a confirming source for stories they had already reported, in an effort to prevent the publication of harmful national security secrets.
Under his plea deal, Cartwright could face up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Last year, Petraeus cut a deal with the Justice Department after admitting he had lied to the FBI and passed hundreds of highly classified documents to his biographer and mistress Paula Broadwell. He pleaded guilty to a single misdemeanor of mishandling classified information and was sentenced to two years probation and a $100,000 fine.
ONE ROTTEN CORRUPT HEAD OF THE FBI … AND YES COMEY YOU ARE A WEASEL …
As reported at The Daily Caller, FBI agents are furious and alarmed at the manner in which the bureaus handled the Hillary Clinton private email server and her possession of top secret US documents. They are especially livid at Director James Comey’s decision to not suggest that the Justice Department prosecute Hillary Clinton over her mishandling of classified information. It is becoming quite obvious that the fix was in from the outset of this so-called investigation. FBI agents are saying that Comey literally stood in the way of the investigation. UNREAL. What a sad day for the once proud FBI. For those agents who are baffled by Comey’s actions and the fact that he is still FBI director, that is called a quid pro quo. Good soldiers get rewarded for covering things up in the Obama White House.
FBI agents say the bureau is alarmed over Director James Comey’s decision to not suggest that the Justice Department prosecute Hillary Clinton over her mishandling of classified information.
According to an interview transcript given to The Daily Caller, provided by an intermediary who spoke to two federal agents with the bureau last Friday, agents are frustrated by Comey’s leadership.
“This is a textbook case where a grand jury should have been convened, but was not. That is appalling,” an FBI special agent who has worked public corruption and criminal cases said of the decision. “We talk about it in the office and don’t know how Comey can keep going.”
The agent was also surprised that the bureau did not bother to search Clinton’s house during the investigation.
“We didn’t search their house. We always search the house. The search should not just have been for private electronics, which contained classified material, but even for printouts of such material,” he said.
“There should have been a complete search of their residence,” the agent pointed out. “That the FBI did not seize devices is unbelievable. The FBI even seizes devices that have been set on fire.”
Another special agent for the bureau who worked counter-terrorism and criminal cases said he is offended by Comey’s saying: “we” and “I’ve been an investigator.”
THE FBI WAS WELL AWARE OF THIS WHEN THEY DECIDED NOT TO RECOMMEND PROSECUTION AGAINST HILLARY CLINTON.
We now learn from FOX News that two bankers boxes containing printouts of Clinton’s emails have gone missing in the Clinton private email server crimes are missing. Imagine that. The FBI should be ashamed of themselves and director Comey needs to resign. Just how corrupt is the FBI in their complicity to help Hillary Clinton cover up her obvious crimes? Or is the FBI that incompetent? In either case, Comey needs to resign in disgrace. How any one with the mountain of evidence and the obvious evidence tampering and attempt t destroy evidence was not recommended to be indicted by and FBI and prosecuted by the Department of Justice is one of the greatest travesties of justice and coverups this country has ever seen.
But what difference does it make that two boxes of my emails went missing, the liberal MSM will never care or report on it.
This case gets worse and worse and the cover-up just gets more obvious each passing day. Now it is up to Donald Trump to nail her on this in the next debate and actually articulate the issue, the crime and the conspiracy to cover up her actions. America, how could you possible vote for some one that you know is this corrupt?
These boxes didn’t go missing, they were destroyed and everyone knows it.
Buried in the 189 pages of heavily redacted FBI witness interviews from the Hillary Clinton email investigation are details of yet another mystery — about two missing “bankers boxes” filled with the former secretary of state’s emails.
The interviews released earlier this month, known as 302s, also reveal the serious allegation that senior State Department official Patrick Kennedy applied pressure to subordinates to change the classified email codes so they would be shielded from Congress and the public.
The details about the boxes are contained in five pages of the FBI file – with a staggering 111 redactions – that summarize the statements of a State Department witness who worked in the “Office of Information Programs and Services (IPS).” The employee told the FBI that, “Initially, IPS officials were told there were 14 bankers boxes of former Secretary of State Hillary CLINTON’s emails at CLINTON’s Friendship Heights office.” Friendship Heights is a neighborhood that straddles the Northwest neighborhood of the District of Columbia and Maryland.
The State Department witness further explained to the FBI that “on or about December 5, 2014, IPS personnel picked up only 12 bankers boxes of CLINTON’s emails from Williams & Connolly.”
The officials were not sure if the boxes “were consolidated or what could have happened to the two other boxes.
HOW MUCH MORE CORRUPT CAN IT GET, THE FBI HAS NO MORE CREDIBILITY, THEY ARE NOTHING MORE THAN A COVER UP ENTITY FOR OBAMA AND HILLARY CLINTON …
As reported at FOX News, the FBI and Department of Justice agreed to immunity deals for two top Hillary Clinton aides included a side arrangement obliging the FBI to destroy their laptops after reviewing the devices. UNREAL. The arrangement was with former Clinton chief of staff Cheryl Mills and ex-campaign staffer Heather Samuelson and also limited the search to no later than Jan. 31, 2015. This entire FBI investigation stinks to the high heavens and it is now obvious that FBI director James Comey has no credibility and he is nothing more than a political tool. As Legal Insurrection opines, once again, more information only leads to more questions instead of answers. Doesn’t it make you wonder why Clinton aides would have needed immunity deals for laptops when the devices were government property?
THIS IS JUST ONE BIG COVER-UP, CORRUPT, CORRUPT, CORRUPT!!!
Immunity deals for two top Hillary Clinton aides included a side arrangement obliging the FBI to destroy their laptops after reviewing the devices, House Judiciary Committee sources told Fox News on Monday.
Sources said the arrangement with former Clinton chief of staff Cheryl Mills and ex-campaign staffer Heather Samuelson also limited the search to no later than Jan. 31, 2015. This meant investigators could not review documents for the period after the email server became public — in turn preventing the bureau from discovering if there was any evidence of obstruction of justice, sources said.
The Republican chairman of the House Judiciary Committee fired off a letter Monday to Attorney General Loretta Lynch asking why the DOJ and FBI agreed to the restrictive terms, including that the FBI would destroy the laptops after finishing the search.
“Like many things about this case, these new materials raise more questions than answers,” Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., wrote in the letter obtained by Fox News.
“Doesn’t the willingness of Ms. Mills and Ms. Samuelson to have their laptops destroyed by the FBI contradict their claim that the laptops could have been withheld because they contained non-relevant, privileged information? If so, doesn’t that undermine the claim that the side agreements were necessary?” Goodlatte asks.
The immunity deals for Mills and Samuelson, made as part of the FBI’s probe into Clinton’s use of a private email server when she served as secretary of state, apparently included a series of “side agreements” that were negotiated by Samuelson and Mills’ attorney Beth Wilkinson.
The side deals were agreed to on June 10, less than a month before FBI Director James Comey announced that the agency would recommend no charges be brought against Clinton or her staff.
Director Comey, you are worse than a WEASEL.
Donald Trump Calls for Special Prosecutor to Investigate “Crooked Hillary Clinton” and Clinton Foundation (VIDEO)
IT IS OBVIOUS THAT OBAMA ADMINISTRATION WILL NOT HONESTLY INVESTIGATE HILLARY CLINTON … TRUMP CALLS FOR SPECIAL PROSECUTOR.
As reported at FOX News, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump called for an “expedited investigation” by a special prosecutor into “pay-to-play” dealings at the Clinton Foundation. Actually America, let’s call it for what it really was … influence peddling. Trump said that if he was elected president, he would appoint a special prosecutor. The Clinton Foundation has been nothing more than a Clinton slush fund and as Trump stated, the Clinton Foundation “is one of the most corrupt enterprises in political history.” Trump stated that the Foundation should be shut down and the money should be given back. Trump went on to say that the Obama administration, FBI and Justice Department have already shown that they are incapably of fairly and without bias investigate Hillary Clinton and her crimes … its time for a special prosecutor now!
Trump discusses the new 15,000 emails and calls for a special prosecutor immediately, immediately, immediately.
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump called for an “expedited investigation” by a special prosecutor into “pay-to-play” accusations involving the Clinton Foundation, amid new allegations the group sought special access for donors with Hillary Clinton’s State Department.
“The Clintons made the State Department into the same kind of pay-to-play operations as the Arkansas government was: pay the Clinton Foundation huge sums of money and throw in some big speaking fees for Bill Clinton and you got to play with the State Department,” Trump said at a campaign rally Monday night in Akron, Ohio.
“The amounts involved, the favors done, the significant amount of time, require an expedited investigation by a special prosecutor immediately, immediately,” he added.
Trump also called the investigation by the FBI and Justice Department into Clinton’s private email server a “whitewash,” and said the two agencies “cannot be trusted to quickly or impartially investigate Hillary Clinton’s crimes.”
A review of State Department call logs for Cheryl Mills, the longtime Clinton confidant who served as chief of staff for the entirety of Clinton’s four-year tenure as America’s top diplomat, reflects at least 148 messages from Laura Graham – then the Clinton Foundation’s chief operating officer – between 2010 and 2012. No other individual or non-profit appears in the logs with anything like that frequency or volume, the review found.
