Earlier this week the State Department reported to the Senate on July 23rd, an unpublicized State Department report which revealed that at least 15 people, so far, working directly for then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, during the Obama Administration, abused and mishandled the former Secretary’s emails, with a total of 23 egregious violations. There were also an additional seven violations that were undisclosed. This revelation was presented in a letter that was written to Iowa Republican Senator Chuck Grassley. The violations of security protocols, abusive, and improper mishandling of highly classified intelligence information are related to Hillary Clinton’s emails. While the review is still not completed, the letter states that at least 15 people received write-ups for breaking State Department rules and national security directives designed to protect against such violations.
According to sources, Mary Elizabeth Taylor, the State Department’s assistant secretary in the Bureau of Legislative Affairs wrote in the letter (to Senator Grassley), stating; “To this point, the Department has assessed culpability to 15 individuals, some of whom were culpable in multiple security incidents.” The current internal review and analysis is being conducted as part of President Trump’s current Secretary of State Mike Pompeo internal investigation in support of the Department of Justice.
It should be noted here that a very strategic information operation went into play following State’s Mary Elizabeth Taylor’s letter to the Senator. It would be safe to say that a corroborated strategic influence campaign was implemented and put into play by the White House StratComms operators, Grassley and the State Department. As I continue to address and talk about — that while some, if not most, see the use of Twitter by the President and other senior officials as sophomoric and unprofessional. Understand, the President and both his communication team and policy teams understands the value, capacity, and capability of Twitter, as well as other social media methods and tools as a way to conduct critical information strategies to support all forms of communications, information, and strategic messaging.
Closer analysis, evaluation, and review of the State Department’s internal investigation regarding Ms. Taylor’s letter to Senator Grassley, indicates that she highlighted further details indicating that the “Department of State has in fact issued 23 violations, and 7 serious infractions incidents. She in addition, qualified her report by saying that, this number will likely change as the review progresses.” She further noted that, “The department considers the violation of security policies to be a serious matter.”
Senator Grassley, as part of his committee is currently overseeing the review, responded to the State Department’s findings via Twitter on July 23rd. Senator Grassley noted that he was glad the State Department responded to his inquiry and that classified material must be “handled by the book.” In the Senator’s Twitter response, he stated; “Glad state dept responded 2 my inquiry & disclosed 23 violations + 7 infractions from 15ppl mishandling classified info in Clinton email review I’ve been doing oversight on this since 2015 Classified info must b handled by the book & violators shld b held accountable.”
Senator Grassley added that “violators” should be held accountable. Likewise, President Trump acknowledged the findings were “really big.” Further noting, “The State Department said it has identified 30 Security Incidents involving current or former employees and their handling of Crooked Hillary Clinton’s Emails,” he said. “This is really big. Never admitted before. Highly Classified Material. Will the Dems investigate this?”
In response to the Twitter posts and comments by the Senator, President Trump on Twitter as is always the case to amplify important information to the media, his base and the nation posted;
“Wow! The State Department said it has identified 30 Security Incidents involving current or former employees and their handling of Crooked Hillary Clinton’s Emails. @FoxNews This is really big. Never admitted before. Highly Classified Material. Will the Dems investigate this?
In further follow-up with the State Department, officials said that its investigation should come to an end in early September 2019 and acknowledged how time-consuming the probe has been. In addition, Taylor wrote, “Given the volume of emails provided to the Department from former Secretary Clinton’s private email server, the Department’s process has been necessarily more complicated and complex requiring a significant dedication of time and resources.” Ms. Taylor said that disciplinary actions were pending and that “all valid security incidents are reviewed by DS and taken into account.” It should be noted that while the letter did not mention any specific names, the State Department promised an additional update once the investigation is complete.
As most Americans who have been following the Clinton Email scandal closely, recall that her private server and emails first came to light as those of us involved in the behind the scene national command authority forensic research and analysis for the U.S. House Select Committee on Benghazi (“at this point what difference does it make”) Investigation were identified. Judicial Watch’s FOIA requests further revealed and validated that information. Clinton’s emails have been the subject of criticism, especially among Republicans. As so note that in 2016, then-FBI Director James Comey said that Clinton’s handling of her emails was “extremely reckless.” Of course, Comey efforts were designed to exonerate his friend Hillary Clinton to protect her race and campaign for the White House. Later, to help establish and give traction to the Mueller Special Counsel investigation.
Nevertheless, most where either unaware or were never aware that in a closed-door Congressional hearing during October 2018, former FBI General Counsel James Baker said he thought that Clinton and her team should have been prosecuted for the handling of her emails, but he was convinced otherwise “pretty late” into the investigation. Unfortunately, for a man who is a legal counsel and attorney, violations such as this involving server and egregious major national security violation are nor protected by statutes of limitations.
In the case of Ms. Clinton’s deliberate and intentional effort to side-step the law, hide, deceive, and scheme to deliberately jeopardize the national security of the United States is both treasonous and seditious or worse. The consequences for such crimes is hard-core and should be. As a career senior intelligence officers, I was trained and expected to know better.
For me patriotism, honor and guarding and protecting our national security was paramount, it was second nature. I could do it in my sleep, and did. I don’t know what this bitch’s f’ing problem is, other than she thinks she’s exempt and better than everyone else.
If I did a tenth of what Ms. Clinton did, I would’ve been given two options; shot at dawn, or be swinging from the gallows in the back lot of a federal penitentiary. American’s have been long awaiting…to long, for a serious dose of JUSTICE! It’s time for that to happen, now!
