“The only people who don’t want to disclose the truth are people with something to hide.” These are words spoken by Barack Obama during his weekly address on August 21, 2010. How right you are, sir.
Fast forward six years and we’re seeing –through a combination of undercover hidden camera operations, hacked email releases by Wikileaks, and the scheduled court-ordered trickle of email releases from her FBI investigation– just how much Hillary Clinton is desperately trying to hide.
Friday’s court-ordered release of Clinton’s deleted emails have shined a blindingly bright light on truths Mrs. Clinton is trying to hide. (In some circles that’s also called “lying.”) Note once again, it happened on the Friday dump…so the mainstream media can ignore it. But we won’t.
A quick review of pertinent facts is necessary here:
• Clinton set up a private email server system in the basement of her Chappaqua, NY estate which experts including the FBI Director have said was less secure than a Gmail account.
• Upon learning of this massive breach of national security the Congressional Committee tasked with investigating the potential breach of federal law issues a subpoena for the Clinton emails.
• Clinton sends the server to a company called BleachBit to permanently “bleach” or completely wipe clean all data and then turns it over to Congress. All the while claiming she’d a) never received a subpoena, and, b) it wouldn’t have mattered if she had because the server was used exclusively for personal purposes and the deleted emails were about yoga routines and her daughter’s upcoming wedding. Yes, 30,000 emails about yoga class.
Friday we learned differently.
Though virtually all of Clinton’s aides and the IT specialists who worked on covering Clinton’s tracks during FBI and congressional investigations invoked the Fifth rather than testify, a U.S. court has ordered emails in FBI investigators possession be released and made public.
That’s happening now.
An email between Mrs. Clinton and her top aide Huma Abedin, an email that was withheld by the Clinton camp as being of a “personal” nature but which is clearly work-related, undercuts Clinton’s claim that she used the private email server for “convenience.”
In the communications in question Abedin wrote to inform Hillary that her emails were going to recipient’s spam folders and that she should begin using an official state.gov address to fix the problem.
Abedin was trying to set up a call with someone identified as Kouchner, presumably Bernard Kouchner a top French diplomat at the time, but Hillary’s ‘ok’ for the call didn’t get to Abedin in time. Huma then emailed Hillary to inform her that, “You are having email delays.”
On November 13, 2010, then a paid Clinton State Department Aide, Abedin typed to Clinton “We should talk about putting you on state email or releasing your email address to the department so you are not going to spam.”
Get it? Abedin wrote this to Clinton after she missed the call with Kouchner. Hillary missed the call because her emails to Huma and other staff did not reach them.
Seems that since her private server set up wasn’t even as safe or sophisticated as a Gmail, state.gov was flagging emails from the boss, from The Secretary of State, as possibly being Viagra or Cheap Timeshares in the Poconos spam!
“It’s not the phone message system, it’s the device delay,” Abedin went on to explain.
In a separate conversation with Clinton that same day, Abedin told her that her approval of a statement to the press did not go through because “you went to spam.” “it happens a lot when you email state emails,” Abedin typed.
You tell me. What does a missed call with a foreign diplomat or approval of a press statement have to do with yoga class?
RNC spokesman Michael Short has nailed it with this brief release, “Once again, Hillary Clinton’s claim that she set up her illicit private server for ‘convenience’ has been shown to be a complete lie. Given that more than half of Clinton’s non-governmental meetings were with Clinton Foundation donors, it’s clear the server was always about covering up pay-to-play corruption at her State Department.”
We’re far from the end of this road. An ABC News report states, “The FBI says that it recovered thousands of emails Clinton did not turn over and that many of them are work related. That means the State Department will have to release them…”
What all this means is what all of us know. Hillary Clinton is a liar. Plain, simple, cut, dried and flat. She is lying right to the faces of those whom she wants to elect her as their leader. And the scariest part is, they’ll still vote for her anyway.
