The DNC Wants A Refund From Hillary Clinton

May 2, 2018

The Democrats want a refund from Hillary Clinton — and they want her to go away, too.

Apparently, Clinton is still cashing in off her failed 2016 campaign.

Instead of just donating her campaign email list to the Democratic National Committee, her organization Onward Together is charging the DNC $1.6 Million for access to it. Even Barack Obama gave his email list to the DNC as an in-kind contribution back in 2015, and his list was valued at $1.9 million!

Does Clinton not realize the DNC is “dead broke,” like $6 million in the red? The DNC recently took out another $2 million dollar loan just to to keep its operation running as usual.

Keeping the DNC in debt says a lot about the Clinton organization. The Democrats are desperate for funds for the 2018 midterm elections, yet the Clintons won’t step in and help their own party.
It’s the least they could do, considering the DNC rigged the primary for Hillary.

FBI Expected To Interview Hillary Clinton In Email Caper Probe — “To determine whether there is a prosecutable case.”

March 28, 2016

Federal prosecutors investigating the possible mishandling of classified materials on Hillary Clinton’s private email server have begun the process of setting up formal interviews with some of her longtime and closest aides, according to two people familiar with the probe, an indication that the inquiry is moving into its final phases.

Those interviews and the final review of the case, however, could still take many weeks, all but guaranteeing that the investigation will continue to dog Clinton’s presidential campaign through most, if not all, of the remaining presidential primaries.

No dates have been set for questioning the advisors, but a federal prosecutor in recent weeks has called their lawyers to alert them that he would soon be doing so, the sources said. Prosecutors also are expected to seek an interview with Clinton herself, though the timing remains unclear.

The interviews by FBI agents and prosecutors will play a significant role in helping them better understand whether Clinton or her aides knowingly or negligently discussed classified government secrets over a non-secure email system when she served as secretary of State.

The meetings also are an indication that much of the investigators’ background work – recovering deleted emails, understanding how the server operated and determining whether it was breached – is nearing completion.

“The interviews are critical to understand the volume of information they have accumulated,” said James McJunkin, former head of the FBI’s Washington field office.  “They are likely nearing the end of the investigation and the agents need to interview these people to put the information in context. They will then spend time aligning these statements with other information, emails, classified documents, etc., to determine whether there is a prosecutable case.”

Many legal experts believe that Clinton faces little risk of being prosecuted for using the private email system to conduct official business when she served as secretary of State, though that decision has raised questions among some about her judgment. They noted that using a private email system was not banned at the time, and others in government had used personal email to transact official business.

The bigger question is whether she or her aides distributed classified material in email systems that fell outside of the department’s secure classified system. But even if prosecutors determine that she did, chances she will be found criminally liable are low. U.S. law makes it a crime for someone to knowingly or willfully retain classified information, handle it in a grossly negligent manner or to pass it to someone not entitled to see it.

Clinton has denied using the email account to send or receive materials marked classified. Though some emails have since been deemed to be too sensitive to release publicly, Clinton’s campaign has attributed that to overzealous intelligence officials and “over-classification run amok.”

Legally it doesn’t matter if the emails were marked as classified or not, since government officials are obligated to recognize sensitive material and guard against its release. But legal experts noted that such labels would be helpful to prosecutors seeking to prove she knew the information was classified, a key element of the law.

“The facts of the case do not fit the law,” said Stephen Vladeck, a law professor at American University. “Reasonable folks may think that federal law ought to prohibit what Hillary did, but it’s just not clear to me that it currently does.”

Hillary Clinton’s Email Included Highly Classified Information Provided by Human Intelligence Sources — Disclosure could have jeopardized lives — “Not intended for dissemination outside of the originating agency.”

As the State Department asked for an extension to publish the last of Hillary Clinton's emails, it's been revealed that at least one of them found on her private server contained extremely sensitive information

As the State Department asked for an extension to publish the last of Hillary Clinton’s emails, it’s been revealed that at least one of them found on her private server contained extremely sensitive information.
According to Fox News, an intelligence agency has identified the email as ‘HCS-O’, which is the code used to report on human intelligence sources in ongoing operations.

.
A January 14 letter sent to Congress by the intelligence community’s inspector general advises the Oversight committees that Special Access Program (SAP), which is intelligence beyond top secret, was identified in Clinton’s emails, Fox News reported.

.
In addition, sources told the television network that documents from the affected agencies that owned the information and have final approval on classification were also found.

.

The Office of the Director of National Intelligence released a December 2013 policy document that read: ‘[This designation] is used to protect exceptionally fragile and unique IC (intelligence community) clandestine HUMINT operations and methods that are not intended for dissemination outside of the originating agency.’

.
It’s unclear if the information contained in the former secretary of state’s emails also revealed who the human source was, their affiliation or nationality, Fox News reported.

.
‘There are people’s lives at stake. Certainly in an intel SAP, if you’re talking about sources and methods, there may be one person in the world that would have access to the type of information contained in that SAP,’ he told Fox News.

.
‘It’s pretty tough to have SAP program material out in the public domain. I mean, it’s a huge foul if that occurs.’

.
The State Department asked a federal court Friday for a one-month extension to publish the last of Clinton’s emails during her time as secretary of state, citing a complex review of some messages across different agencies of the government.

.
Dan Maguire, former Special Operations strategic planner for Africom, told Fox News ‘the disclosure of sensitive material impacts national security and exposes U.S. sources’

State Department spokesman Mark Toner said the department wouldn’t be able to meet its court-mandated goal of January 29.

.
About 9,400 of 55,000 pages are left, but Toner said those remaining ‘contain a large amount of material that required interagency review.’

.
The department will make public as many as possible next week, he said, but is asking for the final deadline to be pushed back until February 29.

.
‘State Department staff have been working extremely hard to process these emails, and we are committed to getting them out,’ Toner said.

.
‘The court’s goal for this month’s production represented the largest number of pages to date. The remaining emails are also the most complex to process.’

.
Some of the most contentious emails haven’t yet been published. They include two that an intelligence community auditor says are ‘top secret’ and others he claims are even more sensitive, containing information from so-called special access programs. Such programs suggest the emails could reveal details about intelligence sources.

.
The State Department says no emails published so far contained material with ‘top secret’ information or any material that was marked classified at the time.

.
The issue has nagged at Clinton’s presidential campaign, with the FBI said to be examining in some capacity.

.
Toner said the delay in publication isn’t the result of ‘ongoing discussion about classification’ that has been made public recently. He said he couldn’t comment further on ongoing litigation.
Clinton, the Democratic front-runner for the 2016 nomination, exclusively used a private email account and a home server during her time in government.

.
She said this was a decision made out of convenience and has denied doing anything wrong.

.
An extension would push the complete publication of Clinton’s emails past several of the earliest primary contests, including the key states of Iowa and New Hampshire.

.
If they come out instead on February 29, it would be a day before the critical Super Tuesday primaries.

.
The department will make public as many as possible next week, but is asking for the final deadline to be pushed back until February 29.
