More Americans are realizing the seriousness of Hillary Clinton’s alleged crimes of illegally sharing classified information using non-secure procedures. This weekend brought more bad news her way.
“Hillary Clinton either committed these offenses, or she didn’t,” wrote retired special operations counterintelligence officer Godfrey Garner last week. “There is no room in matters such as these for the, ‘it depends on what the word ‘is,’ is,’ defense.”
“With apologies and condolences to Democrats, Hillary is going to be indicted,” said Garner, an expert in the legalities of classified information and national security. “Given the sheer number of laws she strongly appears to have broken with regard to her private server for government communication – violating federal officials’ communications and records retention laws — and the plethora of laws dealing with the handling of classified materials.”
Most of Hillary Clinton’s explanations about her private email server have “proven to be false,” says Benghazi Select Committee Chairmain Trey Gowdy.
“It was a very unusual email arrangement she had with herself,” Benghazi Select Committee Trey Gowdy told ABC News last week. “Her decision to handle her email in this way has delayed our ability to do our job with respect to Benghazi, and it remains to be seen whether or not she placed national security information at risk.”
Clinton was forced to turn in the email server in question earlier this month to the FBI for their criminal investigation. It was wiped of information even though she signed a statement that all work-related emails from her time as secretary of state properly handed over.
Gowdy called her bluff and indicates that at least 15 emails were not turned over, because they were found when her associate Sidney Blumenthal turned over his own emails.
Each day, the news gets worse for Clinton, as some in the mainstream media are beginning to turn their backs on her. For weeks, Clinton forces were effective with favored news organizations selecting their opinions cleverly to soften the blow for the Democratic presidential candidate. For instance, the word “investigation” was substituted with the more lenient word, “inquiry,” for their reporting. The amount of air time or space devoted to broadcasting her problems were curtailed and placement was lowered in priority.
One technique used by mainstream media editors is to relegate the bad news of their preferred candidates to the weekend, when Americans are less likely to be exposed to it as they pursue other obligations and leisure time. On Saturday, fewer Americans were exposed to the fact that many of the allegations toward Clinton are growing and proving to be true. Some are realizing that Clinton lied to federal authorities on violating her signed non-disclosure agreements for extremely sensitive national security classified information and materials.
The situation is so bad, Clinton has resorted to her traditional “it’s a right-wing conspiracy” alibis, but even this those are now only assumed by the most gullible of her admirers and steadfast of the hangers-on. A growing number of Americans, knowing they have the rights, obligation, and ability to gather facts to form intelligent opinions, are simply fed up with dishonesty in politics.
During her July 25, 2015 campaign stop in Iowa, Clinton changed her position by telling reporters “I am confident that I never sent nor received any information that was classified at the time it was sent and received.”
Word is getting out that President Barack Obama and his chief advisor Valerie Jarrett are not supporters of Clinton and could be behind some of the intelligence contrary to Clinton being used against her. The idea is to maintain the right wing conspiracy alibi to martyr her while Vice President Joe Biden and other Obama loyalists make a run for President.
By July 31, the State Department release regarding Clinton’s emails showed 41, out of over a thousand, were marked “classified” prior to being made public. As of August 23, 2015, we are learning possibly hundreds of emails of classified information may have been communicated illegally.
“This is the national-security equivalent of drunken driving,” J. Michael Waller, a defense intelligence expert and government consultant told WND in April. “She should go to prison for this. When you drink and drive, you know in advance that you’re putting other people in danger.”
As more information comes to light, allegations and scandals of Clinton’s past are not only coming back to haunt her, but Americans now have a long history to judge her by. When federal investigators were closing in on some alleged offenses from her time as a partner in the Rose Law firm during the Watergate scandal, they subpoenaed Hillary’s billing records in 1994. She told the investigators and reporters she only had a “minor role” and scuffed off the inquiries, similar to how she is approaching the email scandals of today. Later, the Washington Examiner was able to report that “when the records mysteriously turned up in the White House in 1996, they showed she met repeatedly with key figures in the scandal.”
Since the Watergate scandal, Hillary Clinton has built a resume of misdeeds and corruption including Whitewater, Tyson Foodgate, Filegate, Huma Abedin and the Iranian contributions connection, Vince Foster post-death items raids, Peter Franklin Paul, Chinagate, Travelgate, Pardongate, Benghazigate, and the Clinton Foundation frauds.
Perhaps the most telling disgrace was previewed by her actions as a 27-year old staff attorney for the House Judiciary committee investigating the Watergate scandal in 1974.
“She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer,” said her supervisor, Jerry Zeifman. “She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.”
Zeifman, a loyal Democrat fired her, refused to give her a letter of recommendation, called her a liar and more. Over the years, Zeifman and others who knew her back in the younger days, noticed that deceit and corruption has been a constant companion throughout Hillary Clinton’s career.
