Federal judge orders Hillary Clinton deposition to address private emails: ‘Still more to learn’

 

By Ronn Blitzer

March 2, 2020

Fox News

 

A federal judge Monday granted a request from conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch to have former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sit for a sworn deposition to answer questions about her use of a private email server to conduct government business.

 

Clinton has argued that she has already answered questions about this and should not have to do so again — the matter did not result in any charges for the then-presidential candidate in 2016 after a high-profile investigation — but D.C. District Court Judge Royce C. Lamberth said in his ruling that her past responses left much to be desired.

 

“As extensive as the existing record is, it does not sufficiently explain Secretary Clinton’s state of mind when she decided it would be an acceptable practice to set up and use a private server to conduct State Department business,” Lamberth said.

 

The judge went on to recognize that while Clinton responded to written questions in a separate case, “those responses were either incomplete, unhelpful, or cursory at best. Simply put her responses left many more questions than answers.” Lamberth said that using written questions this time “will only muddle any understanding of Secretary Clinton’s state of mind and fail to capture the full picture, thus delaying the final disposition of this case even further.”

 

Lamberth even gave some examples of lingering questions about Clinton’s emails, such as how did she come to believe that her private emails would be preserved under normal State Department processes, who told her this and when, at what point did she learn department records management officials did not know about the server, “[a]nd why did she think that using a private server to conduct State Department business was permissible under the law in the first place?”

 

The ruling comes after Judicial Watch revealed at a December 2019 status conference that the FBI released “approximately thirty previously undisclosed Clinton emails,” and that the State Department “failed to fully explain” where they came from.

 

The State Department has been pushing for the discovery phase of the case to come to a close, but Lamberth said he is not ready to do so, saying that “there is still more to learn.”

 

Judicial Watch, which initiated this case in 2014, is looking for information regarding whether Clinton used her private email server to intentionally get around the Freedom of Information Act, whether the State Department acted in bad faith when they tried to settle the case years ago, and whether the department had adequately looked for records in response to Judicial Watch’s initial FOIA request.

 

Given that the settlement attempts and records search took place after Clinton left office, the judge ruled that the deposition should focus on whether she intentionally tried to use her private server to evade FOIA and her understanding of the State Department’s record management requirements.

 

Lamberth also granted Judicial Watch’s request to depose former Clinton chief of staff Cheryl Mills, IT specialist Paul Combetta who was involved in deleting Clinton’s emails, as well as Brett Gittleson and Yvette Jacks, who were State Department officials familiar with Clinton’s private email server.

 

Judicial Watch also wanted to question Clinton and Mills about government talking points in the aftermath of the 2012 Benghazi attack. Lamberth said that while they “cannot be questioned about the underlying actions taken after the Benghazi attack,” they can face questions regarding “their knowledge of the existence of any emails, documents, or text messages related to the Benghazi attack.”

Judicial Watch

 

Court: ‘It is Time to Hear Directly from Secretary Clinton’

 

(Washington, DC) Judicial Watch today announced that U.S. District Court Judge Royce C. Lamberth granted Judicial Watch’s request to depose former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton about her emails and Benghazi attack documents. The court also ordered the deposition of Clinton’s former Chief of Staff, Cheryl Mills and two other State Department officials.

 

Additionally, the court granted Judicial Watch’s request to subpoena Google for relevant documents and records associated with Clinton’s emails during her tenure at the State Department.

 

The ruling comes in Judicial Watch’s lawsuit that seeks records concerning “talking points or updates on the Benghazi attack” (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:14-cv-01242)). Judicial Watch famously uncovered in 2014 that the “talking points” that provided the basis for Susan Rice’s false statements were created by the Obama White House. This Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit led directly to the disclosure of the Clinton email system in 2015.

 

In December 2018, Judge Lamberth first ordered discovery into whether Secretary Clinton’s use of a private email server was intended to stymie FOIA; whether the State Department’s intent to settle this case in late 2014 and early 2015 amounted to bad faith; and whether the State Department has adequately searched for records responsive to Judicial Watch’s request. The court also authorized discovery into whether the Benghazi controversy motivated the cover-up of Clinton’s email. The court ruled that the Clinton email system was “one of the gravest modern offenses to government transparency.” The State and Justice Departments continued to defend Clinton’s and the agency’s email conduct.

 

Judge Lamberth today overruled Clinton’s and the State and Justice Department’s objections to limited additional discovery by first noting:

 

Discovery up until this point has brought to light a noteworthy amount of relevant information, but Judicial Watch requests an additional round of discovery, and understandably so. With each passing round of discovery, the Court is left with more questions than answers.

 

Additionally, Judge Lamberth said that he is troubled by the fact that both the State Department and Department of Justice want to close discovery in this case:

 

[T]here is still more to learn. Even though many important questions remain unanswered, the Justice Department inexplicably still takes the position that the Court should close discovery and rule on dispositive motions. The Court is especially troubled by this. To argue that the Court now has enough information to determine whether State conducted an adequate search is preposterous, especially when considering State’s deficient representations regarding the existence of additional Clinton emails. Instead, the Court will authorize a new round of discovery

 

With respect to Clinton, the court found that her prior testimony, mostly through written sworn answers, was not sufficient:

 

The Court has considered the numerous times in which Secretary Clinton said she could not recall or remember certain details in her prior interrogatory answers. In a deposition, it is more likely that plaintiff’s counsel could use documents and other testimony to attempt to refresh her recollection. And so, to avoid the unsatisfying and inefficient outcome of multiple rounds of fruitless interrogatories and move this almost six-year-old case closer to its conclusion, Judicial Watch will be permitted to clarify and further explore Secretary Clinton’s answers in person and immediately after she gives them. The Court agrees with Judicial Watch – it is time to hear directly from Secretary Clinton.

 

“Judicial Watch uncovered the Clinton email scandal and we’re pleased that the court authorized us to depose Mrs. Clinton directly on her email conduct and how it impacted the people’s ‘right to know’ under FOIA,” stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

Hillary Clinton’s Lawyer Changes Story on When She Knew About Emails


On June 29 I cross posted a Vincent Vendetta video (a little over 7 minutes) which reported on a Judicial Watch deposition of the Crooked Hillary lawyer (Heather Samuelson)  that aided in wiping subpoenaed emails from the illegal server.

Yesterday my Facebook friend Rose Reed Brown Messaged me a link from The Epoch Times went into greater detail about Samuelson than the video. The original Epoch Times article was posted June 30 but by the time Rose emailed the link, it had a July 3 update. That update is the detail I am cross posting below.

Hillary Clinton’s Lawyer Changes Story on When She Knew About Emails

 

By MARK TAPSCOTT

June 30, 2019 Updated: July 3, 2019

The Epoch Times

 

WASHINGTON—Heather Samuelson, Hillary Clinton’s personal attorney, gave the FBI and Judicial Watch conflicting explanations of when she learned that the former secretary of state used a private email system to conduct official U.S. diplomatic business.

 

“I believe I first became aware when either she e-mailed me on personal matters, such as wishing me happy birthday, or when I infrequently would receive e-mails forwarded to me from others at the department that had that e-mail address listed elsewhere in the document,” Samuelson told Judicial Watch lawyers during a June 13, 2019, deposition.

 

Samuelson worked in the Department of State’s liaison office to President Barack Obama’s White House at the time, according to Judicial Watch.

 

Samuelson told the FBI in 2016 that she didn’t learn of the Clinton email system until becoming Clinton’s personal attorney in 2014, after serving for a year in the White House counsel’s office.

 

The 2016 conversation with the FBI was part of the bureau’s highly controversial investigation of the Clinton private email system, which culminated with then-FBI Director James Comey’s July 5, 2016, announcement that he wouldn’t recommend prosecution of the former chief diplomat.

 

Clinton used the private email system, originally on a server located in the New York mansion she shares with former President Bill Clinton, throughout her tenure as the top U.S. diplomat, from 2009 to 2013.

 

The non-profit government watchdog released the transcript of the deposition on June 28. The Samuelson deposition is the latest in a series of depositions by Judicial Watch of senior Clinton aides that were ordered Dec. 6, 2018, by U.S. District Judge Royce Lamberth.

 

Lamberth described Clinton’s private email system as “one of the gravest modern offenses to government transparency,” and ordered Samuelson and nearly a dozen other former Clinton aides to answer Judicial Watch’s questions either in depositions or in written responses.

 

“After Clinton left office, Samuelson worked for a year in the office of the White House Counsel before becoming Clinton’s personal attorney” in 2014, Judicial Watch said in a statement accompanying release of the deposition.

 

“She was primarily responsible for conducting the review of Clinton emails and sorting out ‘personal’ emails from government emails, which were returned to the State Department under the direction of [former Clinton Chief of Staff] Cheryl Mills and [another] Clinton lawyer, David Kendall,” the Judicial Watch statement said.

 

“After the emails were returned to State, Clinton deleted the rest of the ‘personal’ emails from her server, wiping it clean. Samuelson conducted the review of emails on her laptop, using Clinton server files downloaded from Platte River Networks, which housed the Clinton email server,” the statement continued.

 

Samuelson’s contradiction of her prior statement to the FBI is significant because she also told Judicial Watch that she had been granted by the Department of Justice (DOJ) what she described as “limited production immunity” in June 2016.

 

It isn’t known whether the DOJ’s grant of immunity insulated Samuelson against whatever legal obligation she may have had while working in the White House or the State Department to disclose to law enforcement officials her knowledge that Clinton wasn’t using a secured U.S. government communications system to conduct official diplomatic business.

 

U.S. officials knew that Chinese intelligence had hacked into Clinton’s private system, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) told The Epoch Times on June 29.

 

Gohmert said the Chinese “actually hacked Hillary Clinton’s personal server—as our intel community established without any question—even though the FBI refused to ever examine the evidence.”

 

A forensic analysis of Clinton’s emails conducted by the intelligence community inspector general (ICIG) had determined that a copy of virtually every email from Clinton’s server was sent to an unauthorized source, Gohmert said.

 

Dozens of highly classified documents were sent to and from Clinton on her private email system when she was secretary of state.

 

Samuelson is the second former Clinton associate to be found in the Judicial Watch depositions to have told the FBI one thing in 2016, only to have it contradicted in 2019.

 

Former Clinton State Department aide Justin Cooper told Judicial Watch in a deposition released earlier this year that he worked with the secretary’s then-deputy chief of staff Huma Abedin in setting up the private email system.

 

Cooper’s claim contradicted Abedin’s previous claim in a 2016 deposition by Judicial Watch that she only learned of the private email system in 2015 by “reading in some news articles about a year, a year-and-a-half ago, when it was—it was being publicly discussed.”

 

Abedin was deputy chief of staff throughout Clinton’s tenure at the State Department and then worked for her throughout her primary and general election campaign for president in 2016.

 

“The news that the Obama DOJ gave immunity to Heather Samuelson, Hillary Clinton’s lawyer responsible for the infamous deletion of 33,000 emails, further confirms the sham FBI/DOJ investigation of the Clinton email scandal,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in the statement accompanying the deposition’s release.

 

“And it is curious that Ms. Samuelson changed her story about what she knew and when about the Clinton email system. Attorney General William Barr can’t reopen the Clinton email investigation fast enough,” Fitton said.

It is my humble opinion – sure to anger some – that info from anonymous sources with the appellation “QAnon,” “Vendetta” or the such tend to deliver a message that spurs embellished excitement rather than integrity based data. HOWEVER, I just ran into a video from The Vincent Vendetta Channel that is using a source of integrity in Judicial Watch.

The Death of America’s Justice System

President Trump: Besieged by Enemies of the State

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 12/21/2018 6:44 PM

 

President Donald J. Trump is currently besieged by an out-of-control anti-American Robert Mueller and his Special Counsel team of Democrats, who are abusing the rule of law and wielding the law like a 20-pound sledgehammer to smash President Trump’s existential threat to the Establishment ruling class’s monopoly on power. This “special counsel”, Mueller, an un-elected political hack and Hillary sycophant, is moving against our elected representative to the White House, attacking conservative American’s interests, in an effort to prove President Trump unworthy of the office. And this double-standard of “law” only highlights the fact that our “justice system” has died.

 

America has become punch-drunk from the blows She has recently taken from these self-serving globalists, communists and tyrants of both parties, and we need to return to a true and genuine rule of law rather than the medieval-cum-Bolshevik practices of the Deep State style justice. And in the process, Mueller himself should be prosecuted for overstepping the bounds of common decency and entrapping General Michael Flynn, President Trump’s former National Security Advisor.

 

Flynn’s guilty plea was based on yielding to the FBI’s assertion that he had lied about his perfectly legal conversation with Russia’s Ambassador Kislyak and had concealed a discussion on sanctions. Flynn’s plea was coerced by Mueller, who had the full weight of government behind him, since the legal battle bankrupted him and placed his son under the threat of criminal prosecution. All of this aimed at a real-life war hero, Lt. General Flynn.

 

Flynn is only one of several Trump associates charged with making false statements, during the Russia probe; however incredibly, not one Hillary Clinton aide, not even Cheryl Mills, were charged with making false statements, even though several aids and Clinton herself flat out lied many times, during the FBI’s Clinton email investigation.

 

In October, U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth noted:

 

“I had myself found that Cheryl Mills (senior aide) had … lied under oath … I was quite shocked to find that she had been given immunity … by the Justice Department … “.

 

Along with this, on December 17th, we had to listen to another Hillary minion, James Comey the Hypocrite, speak about President Trump’s so-called “attacks” on the rule of law, the very rule he abrogated when he superseded U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch and declared the Hillary Clinton email case closed, despite ample evidence of criminal wrongdoing. Comey himself was instrumental in going outside normal White House channels and entrapping Flynn, so ever intent as Comey was on bringing down the President.

 

Equally curious, the original interview FBI 302 document, in which two FBI agents state that Flynn did not lie, an exoneration, has magically disappeared and left us to rely on a half-assed interview of the two agents a half year after they originally interviewed Flynn, even though DC District Federal Judge Emmett Sullivan order Mueller and his lackeys to hand over the original 302, by December 14th. Mueller is pretending he can’t find them, while essentially symbolically telling a federal judge to “go to hell”.

 

Mueller and his group of Democrat lawyers, who represented the Clinton Crime Syndicate, are seeking any crime they can find or manufacture, in order to give Democrats ammo to impeach President Trump and undo the results of the 2016 election; even legal hush payments to Stormy Daniels, a whore, is now being turned into a crime, although Congress has maintained a fund to pay off sexual harassment claims against their members since 1995. “Treason” is the mantra of the day, even though the treason rests squarely in their own hearts and actions.

 

Mueller is applying the law against Trump and his associates in a bizarre and creative manner, putting them in peril from the law, when they could have never imagined that their conduct was somehow “illegal”. He’s charging the hell out of top conservative political shakers and movers, while refusing to give the socialist and communist elitist proponents of high treason skate clean away. making himself a tool of the ruling class to dismantle President Trump’s opposition and stop the draining of “the Swamp”.

 

No one is pretending now, and the mainstream media offers nary a peep over a rising and dangerous situation in our nation. If Trump had erased 30,000 emails that were under subpoena, he’d have been thrown under a prison in a Louisiana swamp somewhere, but not Hillary Clinton. Andrew McCabe and Comey lied through their teeth to Congress, but no one need look for them to ever be charged.

 

The Democrats erased a boatload of texts and used a deception to acquire a FISA warrant to spy on President Trump, but who cares, aside from the true American patriots? Nothing seems to matter to half of the country, other than their next welfare check and getting $15 an hour on the job and destroying our republic, “by any means necessary”. So, the Democrats get a pass.

 

If you and I had done a fraction of what Lying James Comey says Hillary “Felonia” Clinton did with classified information, we’d be in a cell using a plastic bag in the toilet to ferment the fruits we smuggled out of the chow hall.

 

Mueller’s appointment is full of conflicts, from his relationship with Hillary Clinton to his close relationship with fired FBI Director James Comey, who deliberately set the special counsel in place with his leaked documents. And both men have accepted millions from the Clinton Foundation and the Clinton Crime Syndicate. Their pal, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, helped them set in motion this probe, that has been stacked against President Trump from the beginning, after spending millions of taxpayer dollars, only to find there wasn’t any collusion between President Trump and the Russians, or for that matter, between Russia and any Trump associate.

As noted by Kurt Schlichter, editor at Townhall:

 

“[Lady] Justice is no longer blind. Her blindfold is off and she is picking favorites”

 

No matter how awkward or embarrassing some Americans might view President Trump, the actions of his opponents make them dangerous enemies of the state and America’s public interest. They are the aspiring tyrants, who long to use government agencies full of people with guns to enforce their will, as they circumvent legal statutes and the courts, and abrogate the rule of law; and President Trump must use any power at his disposal, including investigating the investigators, firing and charging them with their known crimes and putting an end to this dismantling of the rule of law, in order to preserve freedom and liberty in America and prevent Her from being forced into a hot civil war.

Editor Intro to FBI, DOJ Make Side Deal …

Editor John R. Houk

October 4, 2016

 

Over the last few days I have posted some info that shows Comey, his FBI or both involved not only in a cover-up to protect Obama and Crooked Hillary’s hindquarters but also to make Crooked Hillary untouchable enough to get elected. Shades of Obama Administration 2012 Benghazi lies to reelect Barack Hussein Obama.

 

Here are some examples of Comey corruption from those two posts:

 

The more that details about the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email practices come to light, the more their efforts appear to have been a sham designed to exonerate her of wrongdoing from the very beginning. …

 

 

Upon further review, it appears that Mr. Comey’s investigation was highly unusual, given the five immunity agreements that were handed out. …

 

“Instead of asking Attorney General Loretta Lynch to revoke his immunity deal and squeezing him, Comey let [Combetta] go because he was a ‘low-level guy,’ he testified at the House hearing. …

 

… Comey insisted that the immunity agreement was necessary to ensure that the FBI got the facts.

 

“There’s no doubt Combetta was involved in deleting emails,” said Comey. …

 

… Secretary Clinton’s former chief of staff Cheryl Mills and Clinton aide Heather Samuelson also received immunity agreements meant to ensure that they gave the FBI access to their laptops. …

 

 

To add insult to injury, the FBI allowed Samuelson and Mills to sit in on Hillary Clinton’s interview with the bureau.

 

… (Was The Fix In On FBI Investigation Of Hillary Clinton’s Emails? By Roger Aronoff; SlantRight 2.0; 10/1/16)

 

And the other post:

 

Gowdy was after a document called a 302, which is essentially a summary of interviews of key witnesses. The FBI wasn’t giving those to Congress, and instead was getting a “summary of a summary of an interview” instead. This is something the Committee, and Gowdy in particular, was not pleased with. 

 

 

FBI Director James Comey appeared before Congress for the third time.

 

Once again, he fumbled through another session, trying to explain away the reasons why he overlooked Hillary Clinton’s criminal behavior.

 

 

Suspicions were raised when the FBI handed out five grants of immunity to Hillary’s underlings – including former Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills, who was the mastermind behind the private server.

 

Many wondered why immunity was given to so many people and no charges were filed.

 

“GOP lawmakers focused in particular on the Justice Department’s decision to give a form of immunity to Clinton lawyers Cheryl Mills and Heather Samuelson to obtain computers containing emails related to the case.

 “Laptops don’t go to the Bureau of Prisons,” Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) said. “The immunity was not for the laptop, it was for Cheryl Mills.”

 The FBI director repeated an explanation he gave for the first time at a Senate hearing Tuesday, that the deal to get the laptops was wise because subpoenaing computers from an attorney would be complex and time consuming.”

 

… (2 News Pieces on Crooked FBI; Compiled by JRH; SlantRight 2.0; 10/2/16)

 

NOW I FIND OUT that the immunity deals were based ONLY on a limited search AND that after the limited search the laptops were to be destroyed by THE FBI! Here’s the story.

FBI, DOJ Make Side Deal To Destroy Clinton Aides’ Laptops

“… doesn’t that undermine the claim …?”

 

By Charles Campbell

October 3, 2016 at 2:16pm

Western Journalism

 

Sources from the House Judiciary Committee told Fox News Monday that the immunity deals struck with Hillary Clinton’s top aides, Cheryl Mills and Heather Samuelson, included the Justice Department agreeing to destroy their laptops after they had been turned over to federal investigators.

 

The House Judiciary Committee sent a letter Monday to Attorney General Loretta Lynch inquiring about the arrangement, and why it also included a limited search of computers files dating no later than Jan. 31, 2015.

 

“Please explain why DOJ agreed to limit their search of the Mills and Samuelson laptops to a date no later than January 31, 2015,” Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte wrote in the letter, which was first reported by Fox News.

 

Goodlatte states that the agreements, which were signed on June 10, meant that investigators could not review documents after the email server became public and they abandoned “any opportunity to find evidence related to the destruction of evidence or obstruction of justice related to Secretary Clinton’s unauthorized use of a private email server during her tenure as Secretary of State.”

 

“Why was this time limit necessary when Ms. Mills and Ms. Samuelson were granted immunity for any potential destruction of evidence charges?” he added.

 

It was revealed last month that the DOJ granted Mills and Samuelson immunity for any information recovered from their laptops.

 

The House Oversight Committee exposed the immunity agreements publicly, and it raised questions about why two Clinton aides were given permission to sit-in with Clinton during her July interview with the FBI.

 

The FBI claimed that because the interview was voluntary, the investigators had no control over who Clinton brought with her.

 

“Doesn’t the willingness of Ms. Mills and Ms. Samuelson to have their laptops destroyed by the FBI contradict their claim that the laptops could have been withheld because they contained non-relevant, privileged information? If so, doesn’t that undermine the claim that the side agreements were necessary?” Goodlatte wrote.

 

Last week, FBI Director James Comey said that he agreed to grant immunity because he wanted to avoid a drawn-out legal battle, but he also failed to mention that part of the “agreement” was for the laptops to be destroyed.

 

After the news of the laptops being destroyed broke, Twitter users expressed their contempt for how the case has been handled.

Tony Newbill (pseudonym) has some interesting insight on FBI Director Comey’s announcement that his FBI Office IS NOT recommending an indictment against Crooked Hillary Clinton. The insight came as two comments made to the NCCR cross post of “Analysis of FBI Directors Hearing with Congress”.

 

Newbill sees a leftist ruling class held to a different standard of laws than the regular Joe American thus this ruling class is fracturing American society inculcating distrust as a norm in society. Ergo this distrust leads to divisiveness in society.

Tony Newbill Observations on Comey/Clinton

Man what a Mess this country is getting in, and it could be said it stems from corruption within the Judicial system where it looks like there are 2 sets of laws that the ruling class use for themselves and then the civilian laws, like this reads: http://www.wnd.com/2016/07/comey-has-long-history-of-clinton-related-cases/!

 

FBI Director James Comey

FBI Director James Comey

 

NEW YORK – FBI Director James Comey has a long history of involvement in Department of Justice actions that arguably ended up favorable to the Clintons.

 

In 2004, Comey, then serving as a deputy attorney general in the Justice Department, apparently limited the scope of the criminal investigation of Sandy Berger, which left out former Clinton administration officials who may have coordinated with Berger in his removal and destruction of classified records from the National Archives. The documents were relevant to accusations that the Clinton administration was negligent in the build-up to the 9/11 terrorist attack.

 

On Tuesday, Comey announced that despite evidence of “extreme negligence by Hillary Clinton and her top aides regarding the handling of classified information through a private email server, the FBI would not refer criminal charges to Attorney General Loretta Lynch and the Justice Department.

 

Curiously, Berger, Lynch and Cheryl Mills all worked as partners in the Washington law firm Hogan & Hartson, which prepared tax returns for the Clintons and did patent work for a software firm that played a role in the private email server Hillary Clinton used when she was secretary of state.

 

With Hillary making another run for president, don’t get caught up in the lies and spin! In “Hillary Unhinged: In Her Own Words,” find out who the true Hillary is with this raw and humorous collection of quotes that pitilessly underscores her hypocrisy

 

Lynch and Comey both served as U.S. attorney in New York, Lynch for the Eastern District of New York, and Comey for the Southern District of New York. They crossed paths in the investigation of HSBC bank, which avoided criminal charges in a massive money-laundering scandal for which the bank paid a $1.9 billion fine.

 

After Attorney General John Ashcroft recused himself in the Valerie Plame affair in 2004, Comey appointed as special counsel Patrick J. Fitzgerald, who ended up convicting “Scooter” Libby, a top aide to then Vice President Dick Cheney, of perjury and obstruction of justice. The charge was based on the accusations of Plame and her former ambassador husband, Joe Wilson – both partisan supporters of Bill and Hillary Clinton – that Libby outed her as a CIA agent.

 

New York Times reporter Judith Miller’s 2015 memoir strongly suggests Fitzgerald improperly manipulated testimony and withheld crucial evidence in obtaining a conviction against Libby in his 2007 trial.

 

Prosecutor in Berger case

 

As deputy attorney general, Comey was involved in the investigation of Berger, as Fox News reported in 2004

 
Berger at that time was under criminal investigation by the Justice Department for removing from the National Archives various classified documents that should have been turned over to the independent commission investigating the 9/11 terror attacks and for removing handwritten notes he made while reviewing the documents.

 

The New York Times reported in 2005 that Republican leaders speculated Berger removed the documents from the National Archives because he was trying to conceal material that could be damaging to the Clinton administration.

 
There is no evidence Comey’s investigation for the Justice Department made any attempt to determine if anyone affiliated with the Clinton White House prompted Berger or coordinated with him in the decision to remove the classified documents.

 
Various statements Comey made about Berger’s mishandling of classified documents bear comparison to his comments regarding Hillary Clinton’s email server.

 

In 2004, Fox News noted Comey told reporters he could not comment on the Berger investigation but did address the general issue of mishandling classified documents.

 

“As a general matter, we take issues of classified information very seriously,” Comey said in response to a reporter’s question.

 

 

On April 1, 2005, Berger pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of intentionally removing documents from the National Archives and destroying some of them. He was fined $50,000, sentenced to 100 hours of community service and two years of probation. Also, his national security license was stripped for two years.

 

Messages found stored on Clinton’s private email server show that Berger – a convicted thief of classified documents – had been advising Clinton while she served as secretary of state and had access to emails containing classified information.

When our Society sees a Ruling class that is not held to the same standards as We the People are, just like how the ruling class gets healthcare that’s not the same as what the Society is now mandated to buy, and when the same standards like what we have been seeing regarding the Clinton Network with nothing being done about it, it creates a Culture of Disrespect to evolve within the Society. Then Society starts to breakdown and divide on itself!!!!

 
And it could be that we are seeing this going on behind the scenes. Remember this: “Top Down, Bottom Up, Inside-out”??????

2/18/2011 – After the chaos and unrest in Europe, then in the Middle East, just as Glenn Beck predicted, the TOP-DOWN, BOTTOM UP and INSIDE OUT strategy talked about by Van Jones is coming to pass. Along with Jones’ incit[e]ment to get liberal progressive[s] to act on his model, there have been stories published and written by Frances Fox Piven, again, inciting people to get mad at the government, in a sense, inciting unrest and riots, due in part to the economic conditions of our nation. This is what one would consider a well-orchestrated “insurrection” by the mainstream media, unions and even the government. How will it end?

Megyn Kelly: Did Hillary Clinton Have Benghazi Documents SCRUBBED? (BREAKING NEWS)

Fox News Video: Benghazi Report Manipulated?

Watch the latest video at video.foxnews.com

While Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) is busy running the Benghazi Select Committee in the House, major news is breaking about that avoidable terrorist attack which resulted in the deaths of 4 American patriots.

 

FOX News’ Megyn Kelly discussed with Congressman Jim Jordan a report from the Heritage Foundation’s Sharyl Attkisson (a former CBS News investigator) that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ordered every document about the Benghazi terrorist attacks which might harm her image be destroyed by her staff.

 

Here is what Kelly said (above ):

“Hillary Clinton’s advisers may have helped tamper with documents, remove them at least, relating to the attack that killed for Americans, before those documents were handed over to investigators working for the ARB (Accountability Review Board).”

 

Attkisson’s report shows that Hillary Clinton supporter Raymond Maxwell, who once ran the Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs, is claiming he “he walked into the State Department one night, and that they [State Department employee] were scrubbing documents.”

 

Kelly said that when Maxwell walked in, he was told, “Ray, we are to go through these stacks, pull out anything that might be anybody in the Near Eastern Affairs office, or the 7th floor (Hillary Clinton’s floor of the building) in a bad light.” Hillary Clinton’s Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills was also present during the blatant cover-up effort.

 

When Maxwell asked, “Isn’t that unethical?” he was told, “Ray, those are our orders.”
