I have a news flash for everyone: Hillary Clinton served as Secretary of State under president Barack Obama.
And yet her potentially criminal conduct relating to her email usage while Secretary and the subsequent destruction of evidence from servers (among other potential crimes) seems to stick only to her, and not to her boss, Barack Obama.
How can this be?
We all use email and know how it works, with messages being sent and received across many accounts. So where is the investigation into the rest of the email accounts in the Obama administration?
…there can be little doubt that Eric Holder and other high-ranking FBI and DOJ officials themselves wrote Ms. Clinton at Clintonemail.com—not to mention countless communications with the President and “All His Muses”—Counter-terrrorism advisor Lisa Monaco, National Security Advisor Susan Rice, and then White House Counsel Kathryn Ruemmler (not to mention Valerie Jarrett)—about Benghazi and all other top secret and classified issues. The DOJ hasn’t subpoenaed the emails from any of the recipients—or the internet service providers? Or looked for them on the backup government servers of the accounts of all the recipients? And the State Department still today is making statements defending her? <The Observer, link>
Some may say that he had nothing to do with her email server and subsequent file destruction, but this would be a shameful free pass for mr. Obama. The whole thing has been and continues to be part of HIS administration, whether he had full knowledge of it or or only partial knowledge of it. Furthermore, many emails pertain to the Benghazi slaughter of four American diplomats who were not protected by the State Department, the Department of Defense, or the president, and whose names were dishonored when mr. Obama, Ms. Clinton, and Susan Rice all spun the now-notorious lie about the Benghazi attack (in which they tried to claim it was not terrorism inspired by hatred of America).
In any event, Sidney Powell of the Observer just wrote a powerful piece on the Clinton situation entitled: The Countless Crimes of Hillary Clinton: Special Prosecutor Needed Now
It is a tour de force, let me tell you, and you will enjoy it.
And by the way, you may recall that I recently wrote a piece (link) about our nation’s needs for a resurrection of the Office of the Independent Counsel to investigate potential crimes in the Benghazi infamy, the Fast and Furious gun-running operation, and the IRS scandal, which is also gathering a lot of steam. Suffice it to say that I agree with Mr. Powell’s call for a special prosecutor in the Clinton matter.
Here are some excerpts from his piece, strap on your seat belts (emphasis added):
After years of holding herself above the law, telling lie after lie, and months of flat-out obstruction, HIllary Clinton has finally produced to the FBI her server and three thumb drives. Apparently, the server has been professionally wiped clean of any useable information, and the thumb drives contain only what she selectively culled. Myriad criminal offenses apply to this conduct.
It’s high time for a special prosecutor to be named to conduct a full investigation into Ms. Clinton’s likely commission of multiple felonies, including a conspiracy with Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills, and possibly others, to violate multiple laws.
And how about the double-standard employed by the Obama administration regarding who gets prosecuted and who doesn’t?
While the FBI and Department of Justice have willfully ignored Hillary Clinton’s outrageous conduct, they didn’t hesitate a minute to investigate and prosecute former CIA Director and national hero, General Petraeus. He was just tarred, feathered and ridden out of the CIA on a rail for sharing some information (his own notebook) with his biographer who was both in the military and had a top secret clearance. Yet, Petraeus did not have a secret server set up to house his classified and top secret information or digital satellite imagery; he destroyed nothing; and, there was no “leak.”
Right, prosecute a military General who fought valiantly in wars while allowing Hillary Clinton to share top secret / classified e-mails from a personal email server that she then had wiped clean.
Hillary of course continues to act out here political playbook of fake victimization and “Who me?” countenance, but we all know enough about the woman’s style to see the wisdom in Powell’s next line:
Ms. Clinton…established her entire system to avoid the law and in violation of the Espionage Act—as she and her co-conspirators removed all records from the State Department from its inception. Compounding her crimes, she knowingly and willfully destroyed whatever she wanted to destroy—despite or more likely because of—the incriminating information it contained and in the face of the Benghazi investigation.
Benghazi Benghazi Benghazi — how much truth has yet to be revealed, and when it is revealed, what will become of the Obama legacy?
And now the powerful finish by Powell (emphasis added):
The countless false statements are crimes under 18 United States Code Section 1001—both by Ms. Clinton to Congress (“no classified information”) and in writing by Cheryl Mills to the State Department and just filed with Judge Sullivan—in which she states: “On matters pertaining to the conduct of government business, it was her practice to use the officials’ government email accounts.” We already know that Ms. Clinton used her personal server exclusively.
Title 18 United States Code Section 1001 makes it a crime for anyone to “knowingly and willfully” falsify, conceal, or cover up “a material fact,” or make “any materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statement or misrepresentation,” etc. Countless people are convicted felons under this statute—some for offenses that would never occur to anyone even to be a crime.
And these are just a few of the possible statutes that it would appear to any federal prosecutor that she and her corrupt cabal violated.
As Lt. Col. Ralph Peters had the guts to say last night on FoxNews, “Hillary Clinton is a criminal.” Military heroes who have risked their lives for this country have gone to prison for less.
…it’s time for a national outcry for the appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate and indict Ms. Clinton’s flagrant violations of some of our most important laws. Anyone else would have been arrested by now.
Oh, and Hillary, one more thing:
