All day today Twitter is abuzz about some server at TrumpOrg connected with a server in Russia – details that I don’t understand. The news media mentioned the FBI is investigating 2 Trump campaign peeps, Manafort and someone else, for connections to Russia. Despite the left-wing media feeding frenzy about Trump’s Russian connections, the New York Times reported today, on all the details:
The mainstream media breathlessly reports every Trump hint of dirt, while many of them have been doing damage control for Hillary since James Comey reopened the investigation into Hillary Clinton. Andrea Mitchell is as bad of a Hillary hack as Sean Hannity is a Trump hack, but the sad thing is Mitchell considers herself a “journalist”, while Hannity admits he’s a pundit.
I apologize for venting, but being anal retentive, I am still reviewing FBI Notes. In light of this Weiner/Abedin laptop, I really think I need to read through all of these FBI Notes again, because I got burned out on them and didn’t carefully review all of the later ones released.
This server business has me curious because in the FBI Notes (pages 8 &9) there’s an interview with a person (name redacted), hired by Judicial Watch to investigate Blumenthal and Hillary’s server. The name of the company is redacted too, which is frustrating, because it’s like a logic puzzle where you are supposed to figure out the missing names based on the clues, without being given enough clues.
To the point, this interviewee claimed they believed Sidney Bluemnthal had a personal server too. 200 Microsoft Excel files of Blumenthal’s were found on a Romanian server, but NO Bluemnthal emails. I don’t know enough about computers to know what this means, but it must mean something.
Other than computer geeks, is it common for people to have their own servers and does it take a lot computer skills and effort to manage a personal server?
In regards these Romanian files, according to this witness part of one of these files contained names of known and suspected jihadists in Libya and that part of the report was in Russian. There was a reference to an IP address that was NOT Blumenthal’s, but was within the range of the Clinton server. Then they came across a classified document and stopped the project.
All these bits of information must mean something. And now there’s the Weiner/Abedin family laptop to ponder – filled with his selfies and her hoarding every email she could get her hands on at the State Department. Again, wouldn’t her having an email account on the Clinton server give a road into that entire server, if one was computer savvy? Plus Cooper, Bill Clinton’s long-time aide, told the FBI that Huma controlled operation of the SCIF in the Chappaqua home.
The FBI showed Huma Abedin an email that used a pseudonym, which belonged to President Obama. Abedin asked how that could not be classified and then asked if she could have copy ( really she did – FBI Notes – page 93). She wanted a copy of an email, between President Obama and Hillary, which she believed should be classified??? Guess she just wanted to add to her home hoard of sensitive American information.
Geesh, wouldn’t access to Hillary’s server, the SCIF and all this information at the State Department that Huma encountered be a temptation too great for an information hoarder (or spy) to resist? I hoard information and links and books too, in case I need the information later, so it is possible she was just holding on to the information, but that asking for a copy of an email between Obama and Hillary, that she was sure should be classified information… WOW, that speaks to something else. She wanted it as insurance or something. So many questions and so few answers.
In other news, the White House refused to criticize FBI Director, James Comey, today, so the Obama White House wants to distance itself from Hillary’s email mess. Looks like they want to secure President Obama’s legacy and hope her scandal doesn’t drag all of them down, it appears.
No wonder the Obama administration is dodging. The entire Obama administration is a national security train wreck, with clueless idiots running the show, who have no understanding of national security, good intelligence handling protocols or common sense.
These are political hacks, hangers-on, academic ideologues and FOOLS, most of whom view the military and intelligence communities with contempt. This same arrogance permeated the Clinton White House too and that attitude is what led to Hillary and her home-brew server scandal.
Hillary’s campaign chairman, John Podesta, had his emails hacked from his gmail account. Here’s a scary Wiki-Leaks email story about an email between Podesta and a former Obama top State Department official, Tom Nides:
“A former top Department of State official who worked under Hillary Clinton told her presidential campaign chair every White House staffer and top cabinet official uses a personal email account.
“Btw you know as well as I every god damn cabinet officer and WH staff uses [their] gmail account!” Tom Nides, the former deputy secretary of state for management and resources, wrote to John Podesta in a March 2015 email.
Nides, who served in the State Department from 2011 to 2013 while Clinton was secretary of state, wrote to Podesta using his Gmail account, and suggested that he used one while working in the Obama administration.
Podesta’s Gmail account, which he used to communicate with White House staffers, got hacked, revealing Nides’ candid email to the Clinton campaign chairman.”
Here’s a 2013 AP report on the Obama email practices, long before we knew about Hillary’s email server:
“WASHINGTON (AP) — Some of President Barack Obama’s political appointees are using secret government email accounts to conduct official business, The Associated Press found, a practice that complicates agencies’ legal responsibilities to find and turn over emails under public records requests and congressional inquiries.
White House spokesman Jay Carney on Tuesday acknowledged the practice and said it made eminent sense for Cabinet secretaries and other high-profile officials to have what he called alternative email accounts that wouldn’t fill with unwanted messages. Carney said all their email accounts, public and otherwise, were subject to congressional oversight and requests by citizens under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act.
“There’s nothing secret,” Carney said.
The AP reviewed hundreds of pages of government emails released under the federal open records law and couldn’t independently find instances when material from any of the secret accounts it identified was turned over. Congressional oversight committees told the AP they were unfamiliar with the few nonpublic government addresses that AP identified so far, including one for Secretary Kathleen Sebelius of the Health and Human Services Department.
The White House said the practice was also used by previous administrations, but its scale across the government remains a mystery: Most federal agencies have failed to turn over lists of political appointees’ email addresses, which the AP sought under the Freedom of Information Act more than three months ago. The Labor Department initially asked the AP to pay more than $1 million for its email addresses.”
Now, this Obama administration use of private emails to conduct official business was common practice, all the way up to President Obama. These jackasses are selling America down the river to our adversaries, through sheer incompetence and criminal mishandling of sensitive information!
Hillary is out there spinning and lying through her teeth about her criminally negligent mishandling classified information and she probably will win the election next week. Yet her conduct makes it imperative to America’s national security that she should never be entrusted with our nation’s sensitive information again. Sadly, the American people don’t pay attention and wait to be spoon-fed information from corrupt news media and clueless nincompoop pundits.
The Russians interference in our election should be alarming people too. That Trump is cheering that interference speaks to his cluelessness too. He is no match for Putin.
I worry about America’s future.
