Lock Her Up: Hillary either “Forgot”, “Lost”, “Didn’t Understand”, “Mishandled”, “”Was Careless” or “Was Reckless” with top secret documents while US Secretary of State

Hillary Clinton email investigation: FBI notes reveal laptop and thumb drive missing

A Clinton Foundation laptop and a thumb drive used to archive Hillary Clinton’s emails from her time as secretary of state are missing, according to FBI notes released on Friday.

The phrase “Clinton could not recall” litters the summary of the FBI’s investigation, which concluded in July that she should not face charges. Amid fierce Republican criticism of the Democratic presidential candidate, the party’s nominee, Donald Trump released a statement which said “Hillary Clinton’s answers to the FBI about her private email server defy belief” and added that he did not “understand how she was able to get away from prosecution”. 

The FBI documents describe how Monica Hanley, a former Clinton aide, received assistance in spring 2013 from Justin Cooper, a former aide to Bill Clinton, in creating an archive of Hillary Clinton’s emails. Cooper provided Hanley with an Apple MacBook laptop from the Clinton Foundation – the family organisation currently embroiled in controversy – and talked her through the process of transferring emails from Clinton’s private server to the laptop and a thumb drive.
“Hanley completed this task from her personal residence,” the notes record. The devices were intended to be stored at Clinton’s homes in New York and Washington. However, Hanley “forgot” to provide the archive laptop and thumb drive to Clinton’s staff.

In early 2014, Hanley located the laptop at her home and tried to transfer the email archive to an IT company, apparently without success. It appears the emails were then transferred to an unnamed person’s personal Gmail account and there were problems around Apple software not being compatible with that of Microsoft.

The unnamed person “told the FBI that, after the transfer was complete, he deleted the emails from the archive laptop but did not wipe the laptop. The laptop was then put in the mail, only to go missing. [Redacted] told the FBI that she never received the laptop from [redacted]; however, she advised that Clinton’s staff was moving offices at the time, and it would have been easy for the package to get lost during the transition period.

“Neither Hanley nor [redacted] could identify the current whereabouts of the archive laptop or thumb drive containing the archive, and the FBI does not have either item in its possession.”


Clinton’s use of a private email server while in office has dogged her presidential campaign. The FBI has been criticised by Democrats for taking the rare step of publishing its account of confidential interviews with Clinton and others from the recently closed investigation, which found her to have been “extremely careless” in her handling of classified information. Hopes that this would draw a line under the issue, however, appear to have been dashed.

The FBI identified a total of 13 mobile devices associated with Clinton’s two known phone numbers that potentially were used to send emails using clintonemail.com addresses.

The 58 pages of notes released on Friday, several of which were redacted, also related that Hanley often purchased replacement BlackBerry devices for Clinton during Clinton’s time at the state department. Hanley recalled buying most of them at AT&T stores in the Washington area. Cooper was usually responsible for setting them up and synching them to the server.

Clinton’s closest aide, Huma Abedin, and Hanley “indicated the whereabouts of Clinton’s devices would frequently become unknown once she transitioned to a new device”, the documents state. “Cooper did recall two instances where he destroyed Clinton’s old mobile devices by breaking them in half or hitting them with a hammer.”

The notes also contain a string of admissions by Clinton about points she did not know or could not recall: “When asked about the email chain containing ‘(C)’ portion markings that state determined to currently contain CONFIDENTIAL information, Clinton stated that she did not know what the ‘(C)’ meant at the beginning of the paragraphs and speculated it was referencing paragraphs marked in alphabetical order.”




Clinton said she did not pay attention to the difference between top secret, secret and confidential but “took all classified information seriously”. She did not recall receiving any emails she thought should not have been on an unclassified system. She also stated she received no particular guidance as to how she should use the president’s email address.

In addition, the notes say: “Clinton could not recall when she first received her security clearance and if she carried it with her to state via reciprocity from her time in the Senate. Clinton could not recall any briefing or training by state related to the retention of federal records or handling of classified information.”
Clinton was aware she was an original classification authority at the state department, but again “could not recall how often she used this authority or any training or guidance provided by state. Clinton could not give an example of how classification of a document was determined.”

Nor could she recall any specific briefing on how to handle information associated with special access program information. 

“Clinton could not recall a specific process for nominating a target for a drone strike,” the notes say.

According to the notes, on 23 January 2009 Clinton emailed her predecessor, Colin Powell, to ask about his use of a BlackBerry. In his response, Powell told Clinton that if it became “public” that she was using a BlackBerry to “do business”, the emails could become “official records[s] and subject to the law”.
Powell wrote: “Be very careful. I got around it all by not saying much and not using systems that captured the data.”

Clinton told the FBI she understood Powell’s comments to mean that any of her work-related communications would be records of the government and “did not factor” the comments “into her decision to use a personal email account”, the documents say.

The release also includes technical details about how the server in the basement of Clinton’s home in Chappaqua, New York, was set up. 

Clinton’s critics seized on the latest revelations. Trump’s full statement read: “Hillary Clinton’s answers to the FBI about her private email server defy belief. I was absolutely shocked to see that her answers to the FBI stood in direct contradiction to what she told the American people. After reading these documents, I really don’t understand how she was able to get away from prosecution.”

Jason Miller, senior communications adviser to Trump, said: “Hillary Clinton is applying for a job that begins each day with a top secret intelligence briefing, and the notes from her FBI interview reinforce her tremendously bad judgment and dishonesty.

“Clinton’s secret email server was an end run around government transparency laws that wound up jeopardizing our national security and sensitive diplomatic efforts.”

He added: “Clinton’s reckless conduct and dishonest attempts to avoid accountability show she cannot be trusted with the presidency and its chief obligation as commander-in-chief of the US armed forces.” 

The House speaker, Paul Ryan, said: “These documents demonstrate Hillary Clinton’s reckless and downright dangerous handling of classified information during her tenure as secretary of state. They also cast further doubt on the justice department’s decision to avoid prosecuting what is a clear violation of the law. This is exactly why I have called for her to be denied access to classified information.”

Reince Priebus, chair of the Republican National Committee, said: “The FBI’s summary of their interview with Hillary Clinton is a devastating indictment of her judgment, honesty and basic competency. Clinton’s answers either show she is completely incompetent or blatantly lied to the FBI or the public.

“Either way it’s clear that, through her own actions, she has disqualified herself from the presidency.”

The Clinton campaign insisted that it was pleased the notes had been made public. Spokesman Brian Fallon said: “While her use of a single email account was clearly a mistake and she has taken responsibility for it, these materials make clear why the justice department believed there was no basis to move forward with this case.”

    On the University of Chicago policy on Freedom of Expression


    Higher Education Beyond Parody


    Language is a major casualty on the politically correct campus. Race becomes a four-letter word that radiates destructive heat. A student at the University of Houston in Texas was punished for tweeting "All Lives Matter" after the shooting of five policemen in Dallas. The university student government sentenced the offending tweeter to mandatory diversity training.

    At Princeton University, "man" is a three-letter, sexist word. In a four-page memo, administrators told employees that instead of using "man," it would be better to use "gender inclusive language," such as "human beings." But shouldn't that be hu-beings? Not so long ago, Wellesley College students were horrified by the realistic sculpture of a man clad only in his undershorts. "This isn't art!" one of them wrote. "It's sexual assault!" We can only imagine the damage to girly psyches when they see Michelangelo's David.

    At Columbia University, students broke down the world's greatest literature into works depicting women raped and women not raped, all to warn against trigger mechanisms in the mind. That would make reading Ovid's "Metamorphoses" (with at least 80 instances of assault) particularly dangerous.

    The sports world, usually a safe enough outlet for rougher play, isn't immune either. At the University of Iowa, a clinical professor of pediatrics wrote to athletic department officials expressing dismay over the ferocious facial expressions of Herky the Hawk. Herky, the mascot of the Hawkeyes, conveys "an invitation to aggressivity and even violence" and lacks "emotional diversity."

    The University of Chicago dean's letter to students coincides with the publication of "Fail U: The False Promise of Higher Education," by Charles J. Sykes, who counts the costs of such foolishness. Parents are paying as much as $70,000 a year to educate their children, if what they get can always be called education.

    Seeking safe places for students to shelter against troubling or traumatic "triggering" reached its nadir (so far) at Brown University, which provides a "safe room" with calming music, a video of puppies at play and trays of Play-Doh for the kiddies who are nostalgic for their lost innocence of childhood...

  14. CNN CONCEDS TRUMP WAS WELCOMED:

    Washington (CNN)Donald Trump on Saturday directly addressed a largely African-American audience for the first time as a presidential candidate, delivering a warmly received message of unity that focused on fixing economic hardship in the black community.

    Trump spoke to members of the Great Faith Ministries in Detroit, part of his outreach to what is typically a sizable Democratic voting bloc. His visit, however, was marked by protests outside of the church ahead of his arrival.

    Sitting in a pew at the front of the congregation, Trump took a selfie with a church member and at one point held up a baby over his shoulders. He then addressed the congregation.

    "For centuries, the African-American church has been the conscience of this country. So true," Trump said, reading from prepared remarks. He added, “The African-American faith community has been one of God's greatest gifts to America and its people."

    Trump told the audience he was there to "listen to your message" and said he hoped his appearance would "also help your voice to reach new audiences in our country." He said he would lay out his plans for economic change and school choice -- issues that he said would benefit black communities -- in the future.

    "Our nation is too divided," said Trump, who spoke in a measured tone. "We talk past each other and not to each other. And those who seek office do not do enough to step into the community and learn what's going on. I’m here today to learn, so that we can together remedy injustice in any form, and so that we can also remedy economics so that the African-American community can benefit economically through jobs and income and so many other different ways."


    "I believe we need a civil rights agenda for our time," added Trump, whose remarks were warmly received by the congregation.
    After Trump finished speaking, the church's pastor, Bishop Wayne Jackson, draped a prayer shawl over Trump's shoulders, much to the crowd's delight, and handed him a Jewish Heritage Study Bible.

    Elusive Papers of Law Firm Are Found at White House
    January 6, 1996

    The release of the records is the latest of several instances in which the Clinton White House has declared a document search to be exhaustive, only to later stumble on important material. For example, White House officials initially said that Vincent W. Foster Jr., the deputy White House counsel, left no indication of why he committed suicide on July 20, 1993. But later, an aide found the remnants of a note describing Mr. Foster's disenchantment with Washington.

    Mr. Kendall said the Rose billing records were discovered in the White House on Thursday night by Carolyn Huber, a White House aide and former office manager of the Rose firm.

    He also said Mrs. Clinton was not aware until today that the records had been in the White House.

  21. Hillary spokesman: Hey, she’ll hold press conferences after she’s president


    posted at 4:01 pm on September 3, 2016 by Allahpundit

    He did use the plural — “press conferences” — so we’re guaranteed at least two. On the other hand, “the frequency of them is something that would just play out as time went on,” says Brian Fallon. So figure maybe one presser in January 2017 and another a week before the election in 2020.

    We all understand why she’s ducking the spectacle of a press free-for-all while agreeing to sit for interviews with individual reporters, yes?


    It’s been 272 days since Hillary Clinton’s last press conference. But Clinton’s lead press secretary, Brian Fallon, vowed that if elected, “Hillary Clinton will hold press conferences.”

    “But the frequency of them is something that would just play out as time went on,” he added.

    On this week’s “Powerhouse Politics” podcast, Fallon promised greater interaction between Clinton and the press on the campaign trail and said he expects the Democratic nominee to hold a press conference soon.

    “The amount of interaction can only go up,” he said, noting that the traveling press will soon be flying with Clinton on her new campaign plane.

    That’s the latest half-measure to get the press to back off of her about holding a press conference. Instead of flying on a private jet, as she’s done for most of the campaign, she’s switching to a big plane that’ll carry the media along with her as campaigns have traditionally done. If she does a five-minute gaggle with them every few days in the cabin, that’s sort of like a press conference. I guess?....

  24. Life got better for pretty much everyone under Obama, Gallup poll finds

    How Americans feel about the state of their lives have improved markedly in the eight years since Barack Obama was elected president, according to Gallup data released Tuesday.

    In 2008, fewer than half of Americans said their life was good enough to be considered "thriving," according to Gallup. But that's changed: "The 55.4% who are thriving so far in 2016 is on pace to be the highest recorded in the nine years Gallup and Healthways have tracked it," according to the report.

    Not only that, members of each ethnic or racial group in Gallup's study feel better about their lives.

    "The percentages of U.S. whites, blacks, Hispanics and Asians who are thriving have all increased during the Obama era," Gallup notes. The percentage of blacks thriving has risen by about 6 points, as has the percentage of whites and Hispanics. Asian thriving has risen by about 10 points since 2008.

    Better than what?

    Lordy, the friggin country was in recession in 2007 and steadily moved further into the tank over the next three years.

    Pick the right start point and you can prove anything you want with statistics.

    Heck, real median household income is still lower than it was in 2007.

      Sure, you might be screwed but if you 'feel good' about it, that's all that matters.

    1. The last recession started in December 2007 under Bush.

      Before that, there was a recession in March 2001-November 2001 that started, again, under Bush.

      Before that, there was Poppy Bush's recession, July 1990 to March 1991.

      Before that, there was Reagan's really bad one, July 1981 to November 1982.

      Oh, finally, we hit a Democrat recession, January to July, 1980. Before that we got all the Ford and Nixon ones, but you get the idea.

  29. Donald Trump paid the IRS a $2,500 penalty this year, an official at Trump's company said, after it was revealed that Trump's charitable foundation had violated tax laws by giving a political contribution to a campaign group connected to Florida's attorney general.

    Imagine if the Clinton Foundation paid off an AG investigating the emails, then lied to the IRS about the contribution. Imagine all the EB articles.

  31. Hillary Blames Everyone For The Emails But Herself

    1. Even more incredible is Hillary saying the State Department officials should have used their judgment when emailing her classified documents. The premise of this excuse is that the State Department should not have sent any documents to Hillary on her email server that were important or classified.

      But if they had to send a classified email to Hillary, then how were they supposed to send it if not on her private email account? Carrier pigeon? Or, like in the move Goodfellas, the State Department would send a runner to Hillary and whisper in her ear?

      Thus, according to Hillary, the burden is on the State Department to decide whether to send a classified email to Hillary because the State Department knows that Hillary has an unsecured private email account. This assumes that Hillary knew that the email account was not secure for classified mail. According to this logic, the State Department should never have sent a classified email to Hillary. So if her email account was hacked, then it is the fault of the State Department for sending her classified emails.
