James Comey’s Clinton cover-up caper

Just as a memory refresher, let’s go back to June 2016, when Bill Clinton met with Loretta Lynch on the tarmac in Arizona.  What followed was a loud cry about appearances of impropriety, Lynch insisting the meeting was a non-political chat about grandchildren, etc. and then Lynch made the announcement that she would not recuse herself from the Clinton email investigation, but instead she would rely on FBI director, James Comey’s recommendations.  This meeting set in motion the FBI interview of Hillary on a 4th of July weekend.

In September 2016, the FBI released the notes from Hillary’s FBI interview and as I had begun reading these FBI notes on the email investigation, the redactions seemed odd to me. I blogged about this and tweeted about it too.  In Hillary’s interview, I wrote:

wp-1473174957055.jpg

Above is the first paragraph of the FBI Interview Notes.  It lists Hillary Clinton’s attorneys present for this interview.  One name is redacted and one can only wonder why?

On July 2, 2016, the New York Times reported:

Accompanying Mrs. Clinton into the meeting were her lawyer David E. Kendall; Cheryl D. Mills and Heather Samuelson, longtime aides who are also lawyers; and two lawyers from Mr. Kendall’s firm, Williams & Connolly, Katherine Turner and Amy Saharia.

Eight officials from the F.B.I. and the Department of Justice conducted the interview, according to a person who was familiar with the substance of the session but declined to be named because the meeting was private. This person characterized the meeting as “civil” and “businesslike.”

So, was the other attorney Amy Saharia, as the New York Times reported back in July, or was it someone else?  Why on earth redact the name, if it was Saharia???

There are several redactions on who was present from the DOJ.  The FBI Notes list two people from the DOJ/FBI side and have three names redacted, which comes to 5 names, although the NY Times story says there were 8 DOJ/FBI people present, so who are 3 redacted names + 3 others mentioned in the NY Times story???   Even if that one long block of redaction, after David Laufman’s name is more than one name, we are still left with knowing only 2 names of who was present from the FBI/DOJ and leaves SIX unknowns. Something is very wrong when you compare the NY Times report to the FBI Notes.

I went back to looking at news reporting after Hillary’s FBI interview and Team Clinton, predictably had given an exclusive interview to Clinton/Dem media SPIN king, Chuck Todd.

I kept wondering why on earth the FBI redacted only one name of Clinton’s legal team and why on earth would that name be Amy Saharia, when the Clintons released her name to the New York Times in July, so it wasn’t like it was a secret.  Then I kept wondering why would Bill Clinton risk that personal meeting with Loretta Lynch on the tarmac in AZ, when if the only thing to iron out was a date and time for Hillary to do a FBI interview.  Well, there had to be some details that Bill Clinton wanted to convey personally to a trusted Clinton crony, like Loretta Lynch.  I strongly suspect that Bill Clinton arranged for either himself or a another trusted Clinton crony to be present for Hillary’s interview, to make sure nothing went wrong.  I’ve always wondered about someone, perhaps like Eric Holder, whom none of the FBI or DOJ officials would dream of questioning or crossing.

And I believe that FBI interview of Hillary put James Comey in an even more totally compromised position, but he made his decision to go with the Clinton narrative when he made his statement on July 5, 2016.  He spent about 15 minutes chronicling grossly negligent handling of classified information, followed by making up new law and excuses to exonerate Hillary.  He decided to go along with the Clinton corruption, probably assuming Hillary would be his next boss.

On that same day in July, Hillary Clinton was on Air Force One with President Obama heading to their first joint campaign event.

What we don’t know is when those several FBI field office investigations into Clinton Foundation corruption began and when James Comey knew about them. 

That timeline would assuredly tell us if Comey got sucked into the Clinton corruption or if he was already working hard to cover up Clinton corruption under investigation in several FBI field offices.  The Hillary interview was in July 2016 and in October 2016 Comey reopened the email investigation.  On November 2, 2016 Bret Baier at FOX News reported:

Fox News Channel’s Bret Baier reports the latest news about the Clinton Foundation investigation from two sources inside the FBI. He reveals five important new pieces of information in these two short clips:

1. The Clinton Foundation investigation is far more expansive than anybody has reported so far and has been going on for more than a year.

2. The laptops of Clinton aides Cherryl Mills and Heather Samuelson have not been destroyed, and agents are currently combing through them. The investigation has interviewed several people twice, and plans to interview some for a third time.

3. Agents have found emails believed to have originated on Hillary Clinton’s secret server on Anthony Weiner’s laptop. They say the emails are not duplicates and could potentially be classified in nature.

4. Sources within the FBI have told Baier that an indictment is “likely” in the case of pay-for-play at the Clinton Foundation, “barring some obstruction in some way” from the Justice Department.

5. FBI sources say with 99% accuracy that Hillary Clinton’s server has been hacked by at least five foreign intelligence agencies, and that information have been taken from it.

https://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2016/11/02/fbi_sources_tell_fox_news_indictment_likely_in_clinton_foundation_case.html

This report would indicate the Clinton Foundation was ongoing before the July 2016 FBI interview of Hillary and the FBI was sitting on Bill Clinton’s personal Clinton Foundation server, which Hillary has merged her State Dept emails onto and all those disappearing emails didn’t ring any alarm bells at the highest level of the FBI???

In October 2016, when the leaks started coming out about the Clinton Foundation criminal investigations and the Weiner laptop, Comey and McCabe worked to silence the leaks and COVER-UP for the Clintons.  Comey reopened the email investigation strictly as a damage control effort, so he could pronounce a thorough investigation had occurred.  He was all-in on covering up for the Clintons.

When the DOJ IG investigated the email investigation, Comey hung McCabe out to dry and said he didn’t know anything about McCabe authorizing FBI leaks to do damage control on the leaks coming out of NY about the Clinton Foundation investigations.  McCabe said Comey was aware of it and it seems certain Comey knew all about it, because he was helping orchestrate the cover-up and trying to bury the Clinton Foundation investigations, just like he buried the email investigation.

James Comey, what a stand-up guy…

Finger-pointing begins

JK posted the link to the OIG report on Andrew McCabe’s “lack of candor” and everyone should read that report, which centers on McCabe lying about his role in FBI leaks to the WSJ about the Weiner laptop containing more Hillary emails.

Here’s that link: https://oig.justice.gov/reports/2018/o20180413.pdf

James Comey is talking a lot these days on his book tour and he’s got his talking points well rehearsed.  Comey has been bragging that he is Mr. Ethical who called for Andrew McCabe to be investigated, but McCabe’s lawyer has made a statement for McCabe, that Comey is lying and was completely aware of the WSJ leaks McCabe authorized:

“In a statement, Bromwich says “the report fails to adequately address the evidence (including sworn testimony) and documents that prove that Mr. McCabe advised Director Comey repeatedly that he was working with the Wall Street Journal on the stories in question prior to publication.””

https://www.politico.com/story/2018/04/18/mccabes-lawyer-disputes-comey-on-doj-inspector-general-report-533735

The leaks to the WSJ relate to October 2016 leaks from high within the FBI to counter lower level FBI  leaked information to the WSJ about ongoing Clinton Foundation criminal investigations and Huma Abedin having Hillary emails on the Weiner laptop, which the FBI had seized during the Weiner investigation.

Comey and the mainstream media have consistently used the Dem. spin messaging casting those lower level leakers as “rogue, Trump-supporters” in the FBI.  I don’t know if they were Trump-supporters or not, but as always the media went with that labeling.  They might have been pursuing their criminal investigation and believed at the highest levels of the FBI and DOJ, there was a corrupt effort to impede or deep-six their investigation.  If there was suspected criminal activity by powerful political figures, you’d think the FBI would want to proactively investigate that.  Did they ever try to secure Bill Clinton’s emails from that homebrew server?  That server was his personal email server for his Clinton Foundation work.

It’s helpful to go back over the timelines and the messaging campaigns underway.  From my Dec. 13, 2016 blog post, Queen Hillary’s failing coup:

“Here’s a rundown of the Clinton/Dem/Colluding Media talking points I’ve seen, being hysterically repeated on Twitter and various news sites in the last few days:

  • “Fake News” is a dire threat and only certain (Clinton colluding) media can be trusted to report “real” news.
  • Various incantations on popular vote should rule over electoral college – from the dramatically escalating popular vote total for Hillary (likely embellished) to contorted legal reasoning, to crap like Nate Silver tweeted some tripe that Hillary only lost in 4 states by 1%, so without the Russian hacking she’d likely have won – so based on a hypothetical situation, he created imaginary polling statistics, that he’s presenting as serious analysis???
  • More Comey attacks – Harry Reid claimed Comey downplayed Russian hacking.
  • Harry Reid claims Trump directly involved with Russian hacking.
  • Electoral college electors need a special CIA briefing on Russian hacking.
  • America needs a do-over election, because of Russian interference in the election.

The liberal media has shed all pretense of being objective journalists, in fact, many are little more than Democratic hacks.  The hysteria over Americans paying attention to Wikileaks over American journalists’ reporting or Democrat mouthpieces speaks not to Americans being idiots, it speaks to people TRUST Wikileaks (a likely Russian front) over American journalists and the liberal media.

Following Twitter, is an exercise in frantic, sore-loser talking points, most bogus or deeply disingenuous, being breathlessly repeated by a cadre of big name “journalists” and news organizations 24/7.  It’s like kids at summer camp, sitting in a circle around a campfire, whispering something in the next person’s ear and saying, “Pass it on!””

James Comey still bringing up the alleged Trump pee tape in a Moscow hotel on his book tour is the most amazing thing to behold.  He is using unverified allegations from Steele, a paid Clinton/DNC, operative, who relied on 2nd and 3rd hand Russian sources,  claiming to have sources close to the Kremlin.  A former FBI director is and has been working to delegitimize President Trump, a duly elected American president, using an alleged Kremlin sex tape of an American citizen visiting Moscow.  Comey always slyly asserts he doesn’t know if it’s true, but he puts it out to disparage Trump.  Sure, Trump does plenty to discredit himself, but the truth is there appears to have been an orchestrated effort at the highest levels of the Obama administration and among some top Obama intelligence and FBI officials to takedown Trump by vicious leaks and a relentless scorched earth media campaign to both delegitimize his presidency and continually bait him.  Unfortunately for Trump, without fail, he takes their bait.

During those days in October 2016, while the Hillary email investigation was reopened, the Dems and media were on board with the messaging campaign to cast the leaks about ongoing Clinton Foundation criminal investigations and the Weiner laptop as the work of “rogue Trump-supporters” in the FBI, but they also have burnished Steele into some reliable, retired super-spy, even though he has admitted to being virulently anti-Trump and his dossier relied on 2nd and 3rd hand sources in Russia, claiming sources close to the Kremlin.  That means that information is highly likely never going to be verifiable or reliable, but James Comey’s FBI used the Steele dossier, which he knew was dirt on Trump paid for by the Clinton campaign/DNC, to initiate spying on Trump campaign officials and he’s still trying to sell the Steele dossier (Kremlin dirt allegedly compiled on an American citizen) on this book tour.

Something is very wrong with how the Lynch DOJ and Comey led FBI operated.

Trump might end up impeached for some issues stemming from the Cohen investigation, but this Trump/Russian collusion spin is about spun out.

Another Comey tell saga

Today, I came across this Trump tweet, retweeted by Ben Shapiro, with comment and I want to give my short take of this:

Ben Shapiro Retweeted Donald J. Trump

So he publicly re-opened the investigation into her because he wanted a job? That makes no sense. Taking polling into consideration is bad enough, but this is illogical.

Ben Shapiro added,

The Comey explanation is as contorted as the Trump explanation. I suspect Comey expected Hillary to win, so he wanted the Weiner laptop issue “checked off as investigated” & buried. The speed with which he reopened the investigation & reclosed it made it seem like box-checking

From the reporting on the Comey interview with Stephanopoulos. Comey states:

“I don’t remember consciously thinking about that, but it must have been because I was operating in a world where Hillary Clinton was going to beat Donald Trump, and so I’m sure that it was a factor,” Comey told ABC News’ chief anchor George Stephanopoulos in an exclusive interview ahead of the April 17 release of his book, “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership.”

“I don’t remember spelling it out, but it had to have been, that she’s going to be elected president and if I hide this from the American people, she’ll be illegitimate the moment she’s elected, the moment this comes out,” he added.

http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/comey-assumption-clinton-win-factor-email-investigation/story?id=54467459

Despite Stephanopoulos trying to spin this reopened investigation as creating a shadow over a Hillary administration,  I suspect Comey believed that in a Hillary administration he would still be FBI director and Loretta Lynch & company would still be running the DOJ.  He knew how Lynch & company wanted the Clinton investigation(s) deep-sixed.

Comey gets that sanctimonious tone equivocating after Stephanopoulos’ spin, but facts matter.   During that quickie Weiner laptop investigation the FBI was leaking like a sieve, like reports of numerous ongoing field office investigations into the Clinton Foundation. By Comey publicly announcing “FBI reopened &  investigated, nothing to see here“, he was digging a public fire break for a President Hillary Clinton and for himself as FBI director.  He would then have had another convenient public “extremely careless” investigation conclusion to refer to, plus his job as FBI director.

With all that FBI leaking when the email investigation was reopened it seemed like Comey was facing field office PR insurrections and he wanted to placate them that the FBI was doing due diligence to its duties, but he was also looking to his future as FBI director working in a Hillary Clinton administration.

If Hillary had been elected, she could have pointed to the public FBI exoneration on both her email investigation and the emails on Weiner’s laptop.

Heck, the usual “Islamophobia” spin about Huma was ready-made for that scenario.  I believe Comey was just trying to pull off another “extremely careless” PR spin to bury another Clinton scandal and keep his FBI director position.

I wrote about the Comey tell after his July 2016 “extremely careless” speech and I suspected the Clinton silencers at work, but after the exposure of all those fine career professionals handling the Clinton email investigation Comey cited, it sure now seems that Comey entrusted the overseeing of the Clinton investigation to some highly unprofessional, politicized hacks.  He also suffered from the same malady that infects people who get too close to President Trump.  Many people who hang around Trump begin to act like him – rude, disrespectful, engaging in reprehensible name -calling and petty, vicious taunting.

Comey began making politicized judgments and acting like those around him at the highest level of the Lynch DOJ.    His tones now, trying to appease the Left about the reopened email investigation, clearly shows he wants to get back in their good graces and he proclaims his intention is to  “contain” the Trump forest fire” (stop Trump), which he believes “ethical leaders in the government can’t contain”.

Comey’s on a PR campaign to stop Trump, which can only mean he is out to build public support for impeachment, and he has now sunk to the Trump level of name-calling to try to make his case for ethical leadership.

Lord, help us if Trump and Comey are our American role models on principled leadership…

2016 Russian Collusion count

Reported 2016 Russian Collusion count: 2 for Team Clinton and 2 for Team Trump.

Team Clinton:

The Steele dossier, was Russian collusion, with the Clinton campaign and DNC hiring a retired British spy, Christopher Steele to dig up Russian dirt on Donald Trump.  That Russian dirt, unverified and from unknown Russian sources has been used by the Obama Justice Dept. to launch investigations into the Trump campaign and is also the major SPIN cover for the #Resist effort.

The second Clinton Russian collusion effort, is reported to also have been successful at digging up Russian dirt on Donald Trump.  The Guardian reports:

The second memo was written by Cody Shearer, a controversial political activist and former journalist who was close to the Clinton White House in the 1990s.

Unlike Steele, Shearer does not have a background in espionage, and his memo was initially viewed with scepticism, not least because he had shared it with select media organisations before the election.

However, the Guardian has been told the FBI investigation is still assessing details in the “Shearer memo” and is pursuing intriguing leads.

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2018/jan/30/trump-russia-collusion-fbi-cody-shearer-memo

The Shearer memo mirrors much of the Steele dossier.  Imagine that… So, the FBI is seriously using dirt from a Clinton sleaze operative, part of the old Clinton-scandals-witness-intimidation-squad, to bolster the Steele dossier…

Next up, the two Team Trump Russian collusion efforts did not bear fruit.

The Don. Jr. meeting with the Russian lawyer, that was spun as a discussion about Russian adoption, fizzled.  Andrew McCarthy wrote about that in his article, The Gang That Couldn’t Lie Straight.

The other Trump campaign effort was a Republican operative, Peter Smith, who was reported to have tried to hire a British security firm to locate Russian hackers, with the intention of buying Hillary’s emails.  Smith died last year in May, 10 days after talking to a WSJ reporter.  Smith is reported to have committed suicide:

“At the time, the newspaper reported Smith’s May 14 death came about 10 days after he granted the interview. Mystery shrouded how and where he had died, but the lead reporter on the stories said on a podcast he had no reason to believe the death was the result of foul play and that Smith likely had died of natural causes.

In the note recovered by police, Smith apologized to authorities and said that “NO FOUL PLAY WHATSOEVER” was involved in his death. He wrote that he was taking his own life because of a “RECENT BAD TURN IN HEALTH SINCE JANUARY, 2017” and timing related “TO LIFE INSURANCE OF $5 MILLION EXPIRING.””

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/politics/ct-peter-smith-death-met-0713-20170713-story.html

Further on in that same Chicago Tribune story is this fascinating bit of info:

“Smith’s death occurred at the Aspen Suites in Rochester, records show. They list the cause of death as “asphyxiation due to displacement of oxygen in confined space with helium.”

Rochester police Chief Roger Peterson on Wednesday called Smith’s manner of death “unusual,” but a funeral home worker said he’d seen it before.”

Color me just a tad suspicious…  10 days after talking to a WSJ reporter…  Who knows, his Russian collusion may have been successful, but unlike the Steele dossier, I am sure Lynch and Comey would not have been using recovered emails from her”extremely careless” homebrew server, as evidence in Hillary’s “no intent”,  ummm, “matter”…

Stranger than fiction.  Can’t wait to see the next chapter in this 2016 never ending Russian collusion “riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma” (psst, that’s part of a 1939 Winston Churchill quote about Russia).

Later, I am cooking supper.

Showdown at high noon…

Andrew McCarthy  penned a very interesting piece at National Review, The Gang That Couldn’t Lie Straight.

Yes, the Trump campaign was “colluding with Russians” trying to get dirt on Hillary at that Don Jr., Trump Tower meeting with the Russian lawyer, according to Andrew McCarthy.   There were discussions and a conference call between Don Jr., Hicks and Trump, who dreamed up this story, that it was a discussion about Russian adoption.  Some other Trump campaign peeps had put out a different story, so there was some clean-up going on. There are some emails and Hicks supposedly told some other guy that those emails will never see the light of day (this was before the Mueller investigation began, I think). McCarthy says it’s not enough to make for a prosecution of obstruction of justice on its own and explains all the details.

Very interesting – since the Steele dossier was also dirt acquired through “Russian collusion”, funded by the DNC & Clinton campaign, so the FBI was using that info, which came from “Russian collusion”, paid for by the Clinton campaign/DNC, all to go after Trump for “Russian collusion” …  I guess it’s it takes Russian collusion to catch Russian collusion, all roads lead to Moscow, … or something like that.

The GOP (I suspect Gowdy helped write the GOP explanation) put out a timeline explaining why this Nunes memo release is important.  I love timelines and there’s a timeline from July 2016 around the time of Comey’s “no intent” statement, with this FISA warrant being sought and this Trump/Russian collusion spin starting about Carter Page. And there’s some unnamed person who was reportedly involved in feeding Steele information, during a crucial week in this timeline. A British paper reported that person is Cody Shearer, the old intimidating witnesses thug, who worked with Clinton fixer, Terry Lenzner.

Funny it took a year for us to find out the Steele dossier was funded by the DNC & Clinton campaign and used in any way to secure a FISA warrant to investigate the Trump campaign.  Mueller should expand his investigation and investigate the Clinton campaign “Russian collusion” and the FBI use of this Steele dossier in Lynch’s DOJ.

Then yesterday the Dems went full-throttle with this Red Scare McCarthy spin accusing Nunes of working for the Kremlin, and later Paul Ryan too.   I wondered if Hannity reads my tweets, because he was going hard and heavy about how the Steele dossier was “Russian collusion”. Interestingly, Saint Comey tweeted an angry tweet using the Dem Red Scare, Joe McCarthy spin to attack Republicans and “weasels & liars”.  Yet, Hillary was just “extremely careless” in not turning over 13 blackberries & 2 laptops, which were under subpoena, her lawyers destroying around 30,000 emails, lying to the FBI, having that IT firm Bleachbit their server and Comey said there was “no intent” there…

Comey is so wrapped up in his belief that he is a pillar of moral rectitude, that he doesn’t realize how bad it looks that he was going along with the Clinton spin calling the investigation just a “matter” rather than a criminal investigation.   It would be illegal for him to send classified FBI information to his friend/lawyer with the “intent” to leak to the media,  to instigate a SPIN tsunami, as cover, orchestrating a special prosecutor being appointed.   Senator Grassley alleges classified information is in those FBI memos.  If there is, did his friend/lawyer have a security clearance or “need to know”.   Were these FBI notes sent via unsecure private email and how were they maintained?

His angrily tweeting using the Dem’s Joe McCarthy spin is another interesting Comey tell.

Also, telling is the angry Dem tweet from Eric Holder. I still wonder who that redacted name is in those FBI notes on Hillary’s FBI interview, in which Strzok was the lead for the FBI team “interviewing” her. Why redact Amy Saharia’s name, when the Clinton team gave that name to the NY Times, to report on Hillary’s FBI interview? This smells like the same snow job as when she collapsed at that 9/11 ceremony in 2016 and her spinners fed the media a story that she was just dehydrated and left early, but some person videotaped her being held up and collapsing.   That video hit Twitter and so several more Clinton spin lines emerged.  The mainstream media pivoted to attacking Trump peeps for hyping her health.

The FBI/DOJ peeps involved in her interview, that Comey described as pillars of professionalism, when explaining to Congress that his “no reasonable prosecutors would prosecute” was a unanimous decision, well,  they sure are looking not so “professional”. So, who all was involved in that unanimous decision and more importantly, who all was present at Hillary’s FBI interview.  I don’t believe Bill Clinton would allow Hillary to walk into that FBI interview, without either himself or a long-time Clinton fixer there, perhaps someone like “fast and furious” Eric Holder.  Bill Clinton met with Loretta Lynch on the tarmac in AZ the week before, so he was orchestrating this, I believe.

Americans deserve to know who all was present for Hillary’s FBI interview and also who all was part of that team of “career professionals”.

Funny,  how they basically entrapped people & orchestrated SPIN tsunamis to proceed with this Trump Russian collusion investigation, but Hillary ignored subpoenas, there’s evidence of a conspiracy to destroy piles of emails and evidence, the one private IT guy Bleachbit a Clinton server, and even though he was under subpoena, he refused to talk to Congress and didn’t show up to testify.  And again, Mills & Samuelson, with Kendall, “sorted” through the emails on that server, looking for the State Dept ones to return, then destroyed the others, but Samuelson, with Mills, who helped “sort”, was at Samuelson’s  side. as her lawyer, for that interview.  Mills claimed attorney client privilege and Samuelson refused to tell the FBI what keywords they used to search the homebrew server… “No intent” indeed…

Comey told Trump 3X in private that he wasn’t under investigation, even though it’s obvious he was and yet, Comey refused to say that in public. Then the Clinton spin team worked to fuel the “Trump Russian collusion” hysteria in public and Comey used Trump’s comments in those private conversations to feed the spin for calls for a special prosecutor.  This is the same tactic they have used with others in the Trump investigation, or strong-arm tactics like with Flynn and with Manafort, the FBI launched a predawn raid, but with Hillary’s emails – they sold her spin to airbrush the obstruction of justice and classified information, which she was grossly negligent handling.

Sorry, for going on so long here, sort of venting, because the Queen being above the law, always sticks in my craw.

Mueller needs to expand his “Russian collusion” investigation to include investigating the Steele dossier & FBI’s use of it. Mueller, trusted in Comey’s integrity – big mistake there and now the “career professionals” Mueller was trusting don’t look so “professional”.

Finally, if Cody Shearer was involved in feeding Steele information, then why didn’t the FBI know that?  Why didn’t they know this was DNC/Clinton funded Russian dirt they dug up?

Flashback to January 2017

Since the election of President Donald Trump the Democrats have been howling about “Russian collusion” and the unprecedented Russian efforts to interfere in our 2016 presidential election.  The mainstream media fixated on the Trump/Russia collusion storyline too, while news stories about Democrat corruption get buried regularly.

So along with the Awan brothers story being ignored by most of the major mainstream (liberal) news organizations, here’s another January 2016 story that received very little coverage in the mainstream media:

Comey: DNC denied FBI’s requests for access to hacked servers

One thing former FBI director, James Comey, is meticulous about is trying to present himself as non-partisan.  So whenever he dumped dirt on Trump or Hillary, he made sure to dump some dirt on the other side.  When Comey, Clapper, and Brennan were trying to hype the Russian collusion story in January, Comey also mentioned the DNC’s hacked computers, which the DNC refused to turn over to the FBI for analysis.  The DNC reported that they hired Crowd Strike to investigate the hack of the DNC servers.

It makes one wonder how Clapper, Comey and Brennan could be so sure who hacked the DNC computer system, in light of the recent revelations about the Awan brothers access to the DNC computer system, courtesy of Debbie Wasserman -Schultz, combined with the Comey revelation in January, that the FBI never had direct access to the DNC servers.

This January news report from The Hill refers to “servers”, which is plural and it harkens back to the Hillary home-brew server, which was really the Bill Clinton personal server for his Clinton Foundation emails.  With Hillary’s “server”, according to the FBI, there were two servers, the first one Bill Clinton’s aide set-up and the second one, Huma Abedin arranged for Clinton campaign IT guy, Bryan Pagliano, to set-up.  Later, Hillary (or her aides) worked out an arrangement with an outside IT company, Platte River Networks, to provide server services for Hillary’s private emails. And according to FBI notes, it was Cheryl Mills (working with Clinton lawyer, David Kendall), who directed Platte River employees to destroy Hillary’s emails on their server system.

The DNC handling of their hacked servers, begs the question – how many servers did they have and where were they housed?  With Hillary’s server, there were a variety of answers as to how many servers and what happened to them.  There was also the glossing over the facts, like Hillary also used a  private email account before switching to using Bill Clinton’s private server in their Chappaqua home.  Hillary, according to the FBI notes, used 13 mobile devices, NONE of which were ever turned over to the FBI and she used 5 ipads, of which 3 were turned over to the FBI.  In the case of Hillary’s “server”, there were at least 2 servers used in the Clinton home and then the Platte River Networks system(s)… in addition to the numerous other devices Hillary used and that’s not counting the numerous aides and Obama officials who emailed Hillary via unsecure private email accounts, including even President Obama.  The FBI Notes of Huma Abedin’s interview revealed that Abedin was shown an email using a pseudonym, from a gmail account, and informed that email was from President Obama.

With so many unsecured servers, private email accounts, personal devices in play, it would seem to me, that you would need to analyze all of them to be able to state with certainty if they were hacked, who hacked them and how many times they were hacked.  Hillary’s email server scandal included multiple servers and devices, so how many DNC servers were there, where were they located and who all had access to them?

Undercutting our American democratic institutions

 

The following is a repost of my December 13, 2016 blog post.  Sadly, I was wrong.  Hillary’s coup may have failed to prevent Donald Trump from being inaugurated, but the Left is determined to see that he is impeached.  Trump’s own behavior may end up helping them succeed.  Besides the Left’s relentless, Resist efforts, there’s a core Trump Flight 93 media attack squad too, who work just like the Left’s spinners.  These Trump mouthpieces attack anyone who isn’t on the Trump Train, working to destroy them.  They also defend Trump and make excuses for the many inexcusable things Trump says and does.  The rest of us are stuck being bombarded by their propaganda barrages every day.  This continuing 2016 Presidential Election scorched earth information war is severely damaging America, because America’s federal government looks completely dysfunctional and that is the biggest win for the Russians from the 2016 Presidential Election:

Queen Hillary’s failing coup…

President Obama has had numerous rappers at the White House. Hillary had Beyonce and Jay Z campaigning with her, but Kanye West showing up at Trump Tower this morning represents some new low in lack of seriousness about the presidency, according to the likes of Andrea Mitchell.  I thought she was traveling with Hillary’s campaign, but guess she missed seeing Beyonce and Jay Z…

I think Trump will be a disaster as President.  I believe he’s very corrupt.  However, I thought the same things about President Obama and America survived.  I believe the same things about Hillary too, so I take solace in the FACT that America is much more than our President and we are still a very blessed and fortunate people, because we are FREE.  There are millions of wonderful people in America and thankfully most of us encounter them and not these corrupt journalists and shady politicians in our everyday lives.  We still are free to go about our daily lives, to dream, to set off on new adventures and to hope and dream.   For me, needlework is a stress-reliever, so I’m stitching away… another tissue box cover – three sides done since Sunday:

I have a feeling the Trump years will be very productive stitching years for me, lol.  Oh, the little yarn tails on the top center are just my marking the top, while I stitch, so I know which side is the top when I set my sewing down and then go back to it.

Trump worries me, but the corrupt Clinton/Dem/Media cabal scare the crap out of me.  The Russian hacking/ interference is bad, but so far there’s no evidence they tampered with ballot boxes, so the election is legitimate – end of conversation!  The Dems with this recount fiasco, pushing the propaganda that the popular vote should count and not the electoral college, and now the desperation pitch for a do-over election, ostensibly because of Russian interference are trying to supplant the constitutional process all to prop up a very corrupt woman, who will do anything to be President.  And her enablers are ready to discard The Constitution to assist her.  I would have supported legal efforts to dump Trump as the Republican candidate before the election, but the general election is THE election, according to The Constitution and that’s FINAL!

Donald Trump deserves the opportunity to take office and be the President of the United States.  The Americans who voted for him deserve that too.  And frankly, respect for The Constitution demands we follow the rules.  If he is a disaster, there are constitutional remedies for that too, but it’s ridiculous to talk about impeaching him before he’s even taken office (which some leftist loons are proposing).

Yesterday, John Podesta, who fell for a common phishing scam and gave the hackers his email password, supported a demand for a special CIA briefing on Russian hacking for electors.  One of the chief organizers of this elector effort is Nancy Pelosi’s daughter.  The electors don’t have security clearances, so anything the CIA can tell them, they can tell all of America – so cut the drama queen act and just have the CIA release the information.  My bet is neither the Obama White House nor the CIA will do this, because they’ve exaggerated the facts.

Even President Obama has gotten into the Russian hacking propaganda blitz and it’s revolting.  The Dems are demanding new investigations into Russian hacking, despite the fact there already are ongoing Congressional investigations into Russian hacking.  Prior to this election hysteria, the Obama administration tried to downplay the Russian hacking threat.

So, the administration, where widespread use of private email was common practice, including by President Obama, now wants to champion fighting cyber-threats???  Be for real, the first line of defense against cyber-attacks is good online practices… like using SECURE systems for government business.

President Obama used his private gmail account to email Hillary at her private server email address.  Huma Abedin was sure the Obama/Hillary email the FBI showed her, which was part of a classified CHAIN, had to be classified.  Let’s start by finding out what kind of information President Obama was sending via his private gmail account, before we get too excited about the Russian hacking.

The Democrats are in mass hysteria about investigations into Russian hacking, well, sure let’s find out who they hacked, how they hacked and what was done to prevent their hacking.

It’s hard not to laugh at Democratic mouthpieces hysterically demanding an email investigation as the last ditch effort to beg, borrow or steal the election for Hillary.  The clock is ticking…to December 19th.

If these people weren’t able to wield so much influence in America, I’d be laughing, because was there ever a more ridiculous leader to put forth as tough enough to take on Russian hacking, than Hillary Clinton???  She is the Democrats’ champion on facing America’s cyber-threats???

She couldn’t even keep track of her own blackberries, she had her Filipino maid printing out classified emails in the SCIF in her DC home, she and her State Dept. staff were sending classified information on her home-brew server, and she believed her private email server was secure, because the Secret Service protect her home…  If foreign intelligence agencies around the globe aren’t laughing at the Obama administration, Hillary Clinton and fools like Michael Morell, I would be shocked:

“Former CIA acting director Michael Morell called the intelligence agency’s conclusion that Russia meddled in the U.S. presidential election to help President-elect Donald Trump “the political equivalent of 9/11.”

“A foreign government messing around in our elections is, I think, an existential threat to our way of life. To me, and this is to me not an overstatement, this is the political equivalent of 9/11,” Morell said in an interview posted Sunday on The Cipher Brief. “It is huge and the fact that it hasn’t gotten more attention from the Obama Administration, Congress, and the mainstream media, is just shocking to me.””

Too bad these fools don’t realize that THEY and THEIR own weak policies and careless handling of information practically handed the information to the Russians.  John Podesta did hand his emails to them…

“Fake news”…. yeah, the people who sold the SPIN cycle to the American people want to lecture Americans on fake news … what a farce!
