MOP SECRET AND MAID TO ORDER …
The New York Post is reporting that according to latest reports based on FBI notes that Hillary Clinton had her Filipino immigrant maid handle and print classified emails for her when she was secretary of state. Of course the maid, not surprisingly, did not have the security clearance to handle such materials. But of course that did not stop Clinton from having her top aides at the State Department forward the sensitive documents to her for printing, emails. UNREAL. The maid?!? At every step Hillary Clinton broke the law when dealing with classified information and put the United States at risk, and could have cared less. AMERICA, WAKE THE HELL UP!!! Do you care? Or have you become that lazy and apathetic? As Doug Powers opines at Michelle Malkin.com, “Americans have 2 days to decide who they trust to handle the nation’s secrets: Trump & Pence, or Hillary & her maid.”
You just can’t make this stuff up. But you can put an end to it once and for all.
As secretary of state, Hillary Clinton routinely asked her maid to print out sensitive government e-mails and documents — including ones containing classified information — from her house in Washington, DC, e-mails and FBI memos show. But the housekeeper lacked the security clearance to handle such material.
In fact, Marina Santos was called on so frequently to receive e-mails that she may hold the secrets to E-mailgate — if only the FBI and Congress would subpoena her and the equipment she used.
Clinton entrusted far more than the care of her DC residence, known as Whitehaven, to Santos. She expected the Filipino immigrant to handle state secrets, further opening the Democratic presidential nominee to criticism that she played fast and loose with national security.
Clinton would first receive highly sensitive e-mails from top aides at the State Department and then request that they, in turn, forward the messages and any attached documents to Santos to print out for her at the home.
Among other things, Clinton requested Santos print out drafts of her speeches, confidential memos and “call sheets” — background information and talking points prepared for the secretary of state in advance of a phone call with a foreign head of state.
“Pls ask Marina to print for me in am,” Clinton told Huma Abedin in a 2011 email marked sensitive but not classified.
In a 2012 email titled “Revisions to the Iran points” that was marked classified, one of Clinton’s aides wrote, “We can ask Marina to print this.”
Both emails were marked “confidential.”
According to the FBI’s notes, Santos also had access to a SCIF (sensitive compartmented information facility) room that was setup at Clinton’s D.C. residence known as Whitehaven, the Post reported.
One only wonders what the pool boy and lawn mower guy were tasked to do?
STOP THE MADNESS … BECAUSE WHAT COULD GO WRONG WITH A GAFFE PRONE BIDEN SPOUTING OFF AT THE MOUTH OVER SEAS?
According to The Politico, Hillary Clinton has VP Joe Biden on the short list to be her Secretary of State if she were to win the 2016 presidential election. Are you joking, is this a SNL skit? America, wake up, this is a “big F’n deal”. Just what America needs, Uncle Joe Biden and his gift for gaffe causing an international incident. This is a bizarre choice of person and position by Clinton. One, Biden would be 74 years old upon taking such a cabinet position. Hey Democrats, what happened to your party, is there anyone under the age of 69 in it? Two, why on earth would Hillary Clinton even reference the position of Secretary of State, the one she head under Barack Obama and committed so many scandals and crimes with the use of a private email server containing classified U.S. documents. Maybe some one should ask Team Hillary is she would allow her Sec. of State to do the same as she did while in the position? Then again, I don’t think Biden has a Foundation to fennel monies to.
What a pathetic attempt by Team Hillary to plant a story at The Politico to pander to Democrat voters who would have much preferred Biden as the Democrat nominee over her. Cuz the Democrats and media complex would never do such a thing, would they Wikileaks?
Joe Biden is at the top of the internal short list Hillary Clinton’s transition team is preparing for her pick to be secretary of state, a source familiar with the planning tells POLITICO.
This would be the first major Cabinet candidate to go public for a campaign that’s insisted its focus remains on winning the election, and perhaps the most central choice for a potential president who was a secretary of state herself.
Neither Clinton, nor her aides have yet told Biden. According to the source, they’re strategizing about how to make the approach to the vice president, who almost ran against her in the Democratic primaries but has since been campaigning for her at a breakneck pace all over the country in these final months.
“He’d be great, and they are spending a lot of time figuring out the best way to try to persuade him to do it if she wins,” said the source familiar with the transition planning.
Joe Biden … Gaffe machine
QUID PRO QUO … Hillary Clinton’s Email Problems Just Got Real … Undersecretary of State Patrick Kennedy asked the FBI to Change Classification Decisions in exchange for Favors
ARE YOU KIDDING ME … THIS IS THE DEFINITION OF A QUID PRO QUO AND ITS EVEN REFERENCED IN THE FRIGGIN EMAIL!!!
From the WAPO, State Department contacted the FBI to change the classification of emails from classified to unclassified and offered a quid pro quo in exchange. Just how corrupt is the Obama administration and to what lengths will they go to cover up for Hillary Clinton? How does Patrick Kennedy have a job? Is there anything that was legal and done properly with these emails? But these are the lengths that every one is willing to go to protect a corrupt individual like Hillary Clinton.
AMERICA … WAKE THE HELL UP AND PUT AN END TO THIS GOVERNMENT CORRUPTION!!! DO NOT REWARD THE MOST CORRUPT POLITICIAN OF OUR TIMES WITH THE PRESIDENCY.
For the past few months, Hillary Clinton’s decision to exclusively use a private email server while at the State Department has receded as a campaign issue as Donald Trump’s comments about women have come to dominate the daily chatter about the 2016 race.
On Monday, however, the various issues associated with Clinton’s email setup came roaring back. According to emails released by the FBI, Undersecretary of State Patrick Kennedy asked the FBI to ease up on classification decisions in exchange for allowing more FBI agents in countries where they were not permitted to go. The words “quid pro quo” were used to describe the proposed exchange by the FBI official. (The State Department insists it was no such thing; “This allegation is inaccurate and does not align with the facts,” said State Department deputy spokesman Mark Toner in a statement. “To be clear: the State Department did upgrade the document at the request of the FBI when we released it back in May 2015.”)
The Tale of Hillary Clinton & the Clinton Foundation Corruption Continues … Donors Given Special Access to State Department
AMERICA, WHAT MORE DO YOU NEED TO SEE TO SHOW YOU THAT HILLARY CLINTON IS AS CORRUPT AS IT GETS?
The AP is reporting, not Fox News, the AP, that more than one half, at least 85 of 154 people from private interests who met or had phone conversations scheduled with Hillary Clinton while she led the State Department donated to her family charity or pledged commitments to its international programs. This is called influence peddling folks, or as many like to now refer to it as “pay for play.” What is this, the mob and a protection racket? as Powerline opines, “So it wasn’t absolutely impossible to get a meeting with the Secretary of State if you didn’t contribute to her slush fund, but it was extremely unlikely.”
How could anyone in good conscious actually vote for this corrupt woman who sold the State Department out to the highest bidder. What do you think that she will do as president?
More than half the people outside the government who met with Hillary Clinton while she was secretary of state gave money – either personally or through companies or groups – to the Clinton Foundation. It’s an extraordinary proportion indicating her possible ethics challenges if elected president.
At least 85 of 154 people from private interests who met or had phone conversations scheduled with Clinton while she led the State Department donated to her family charity or pledged commitments to its international programs, according to a review of State Department calendars released so far to The Associated Press. Combined, the 85 donors contributed as much as $156 million. At least 40 donated more than $100,000 each, and 20 gave more than $1 million.
Donors who were granted time with Clinton included an internationally known economist who asked for her help as the Bangladesh government pressured him to resign from a nonprofit bank he ran; a Wall Street executive who sought Clinton’s help with a visa problem; and Estee Lauder executives who were listed as meeting with Clinton while her department worked with the firm’s corporate charity to counter gender-based violence in South Africa.
The AP’s findings represent the first systematic effort to calculate the scope of the intersecting interests of Clinton Foundation donors and people who met personally with Clinton or spoke to her by phone about their needs.
The 154 did not include U.S. federal employees or foreign government representatives. Clinton met with representatives of at least 16 foreign governments that donated as much as $170 million to the Clinton charity, but they were not included in AP’s calculations because such meetings would presumably have been part of her diplomatic duties.
What more do the American people need to see before they can put one and one together and get exactly what Bill and Hillary Clinton were doing? You know its bad when even the WAPO raises an eyebrow at the actions of Hillary Clinton. Sorry America, Hillary Clinton has run out of chances to say she didn’t know, she does not recollect and it was just bad judgement, and not a crime. If it was 5 to 10 out of 154 individuals, that might have been defensible. But when more than 55% of individuals overlap between State and the Clinton Foundation donors … sorry, you are guilty as hell. That goes beyond you should have known better and is an act with intent.
But, COME ON, MAN. It is literally impossible to look at those two paragraphs and not raise your eyebrows. Half of all of the nongovernmental people Clinton either met with or spoke to on the phone during her four years at the State Department were donors to the Clinton Foundation! HALF!
And those 85 people donated $156 million, which, according to my calculator, breaks down to an average contribution just north of $1.8 million. (Yes, I know that not everyone gave the same amount.)
It just plain looks bad. Really bad.
No one is alleging that the Clinton Foundation didn’t (and doesn’t) do enormous amounts of good around the world. It does. (That’s for you, my dearest Twitter haters.) But what the Clinton Foundation does with the money it receives isn’t the point here. At issue is whether there was a too-fuzzy line between Clinton’s work at the State Department and the contributions being made to the foundation. And while nothing in the AP story is proof of any wrongdoing, it is proof of bad judgment.
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.
