Rut Roh – Hillary Clinton Never Used State Dept Email Account – Only Used Personal Email for Entire Four Years…

First, it should be recognized that Team Hillary is trying to hide this explosive revelation in the media cycle of the wildly covered Benjamin Netanyahu speech.

Accepting the timing of the story, if you needed further confirmation of how horridly corrupt the Machiavellian schemes are within Team Clinton, well, this latest story represents the “cherry” on the cake.

Remember too, this current revelation must be kept in perspective because it comes on the heels of some other rather conspicuous previous sunlight encumbrances.  Namely the November 2012 Thanksgiving holiday when a mysterious fire took place in the State Department DC office building.  Well, actually directly above her exact office – cause undetermined.

A “fire” which preceded an unfortunate slip and fall for the Secretary, resulting in a concussion, which led to the discovery of a blood clot, that ultimately delayed her congressional testimony before a Senate Hearing into the events of Benghazi two months earlier.

And this latest revelation must also keep in mind an internal State Department Accountability Review Board report where they never actually interviewed Hillary but said they reviewed “all pertinent documents”.  Did those ARB investigators even know about her personal email?   I digress….

hillary strokeThe potential FOIA ramifications are boundless. The timing of the notification is virtually simultaneous to another Secret Email Account currently under judicial scrutiny within the EPA again as a result of FOIA avoidance. First to Hillary.

The report tonight from The New York Times reveals that during Hillary Clinton’s entire tenure as Secretary of State, she used only a private email account to conduct official business and those emails were not stored on government servers.

[…] Her expansive use of the private account was alarming to current and former National Archives and Records Administration officials and government watchdogs, who called it a serious breach. (link)

The New York Times report says at no point did Clinton hold a government email address while heading up the State Department. How rare is this? As one former director of litigation at the National Archives said:

“It is very difficult to conceive of a scenario — short of nuclear winter — where an agency would be justified in allowing its cabinet-level-head officer to solely use a private email communications channel for the conduct of government business.”

According to the Times report – Clinton did end up handing over her emails to the government, but only two months ago, and the Times specifically notes her advisers “decided which ones to turn over to the State Department.” All of this, not incidentally, might well be in violation of federal requirements on government agency correspondence.

According to Nick Merrill, a Clinton spokesman, her personal email account was used intending to follow the “letter and the spirit of the rules.”

[…] Mr. Merrill said that because Mrs. Clinton had been sending emails to other State Department officials at their government accounts, she had “every expectation they would be retained.” Mr. Merrill declined to answer questions about any emails that Mrs. Clinton may have sent to foreign leaders, people in the private sector or government officials outside the State Department.

Hey wait, what…. where did we recently read that exact same justification?

Ah yes, the recent Landmark Legal Foundation v. The United States EPA FOIA case – where it was argued in court the reason for FOIA problems -lack of legal delivery- was caused by personal email accounts being used in lieu of the required government accounts.

The Federal Judge wasn’t very happy in that instance (see mid page #17 and continue):

Apparently the Obama administration, at least the Cabinet Officers, has a habit of using personal email as a technique to avoid the sunlight of their activity.

Back to Hillary. How exactly did this latest revelation reach the news cycle:

[…] The existence of Mrs. Clinton’s personal email account was discovered as a House committee investigating the attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi sought correspondence between Mrs. Clinton and her aides about the attack.

Two weeks ago, Mrs. Clinton provided the committee with about 300 emails — amounting to roughly 900 pages — about the Benghazi attacks that Mrs. Clinton’s aides had found among her personal emails.

Mrs. Clinton and the committee declined to comment on the contents of the emails or whether they will be made public.

Oh Boy, this could be interesting… VERY INTERESTING !

update-1UPDATE: (Via Washington Post) In March 2013, an adviser to Clinton, Sidney Blumenthal, had his email hacked by “Guccifer” — the Romanian hacker perhaps best known for revealing George W. Bush’s paintings to the world. At the time, Gawker reported that Blumenthal was communicating with an account that appeared to belong to Clinton at the “clintonemail.com” domain. The content of some of those emails was published by RT.com.

Examining the registry information for “clintonemail.com” reveals that the domain was first created on January 13, 2009 — one week before President Obama was sworn into office, and the same day that Clinton’s confirmation hearings began before the Senate.

    It COULD be interesting if it was anybody but Hillary. I mean, she hasn’t been Sec State for over a year now. It’s old news and really what difference does it make?

    I love how they are slowly leaking things they know may be dug up by GOP during campaign now, so it will be “old news” in 2016. We’ve seen this movie before.

        Congress should subpoena her entire file of emails from the private-sector email domain’s server backups. Congress could pay them for their tech’s time and effort, since the commercial sector isn’t subject to FOIA. But those records can be gotten, I’d bet.

      So much for the NY Times as the “Clinton loving” liberals???? How about NBC’s The Today Show which had a banner headline this morning quote “Hillary Clinton Email Scandal”. As I’ve long said the real problem that the Clinton have is that BOTH the left and right media hates them and always has. Even if the liberal press agree with them on most issues. That’s the major reason why I LIKE HRC.

      My cardinal rule is–if the media hates you, you must be doing something right.

    Very interesting post at The Last Refuge blog tonight – Hillary Clinton used her personal email account while Secretary of State to conduct official business. Of course, sundance, the excellent blogger, also includes many helpful reminders of some odd happenings during Hillary Clinton’s tenure at Foggy Bottom, like the mysterious fire above her office in 2012, while they were busily trying to bury the Benghazi investigation……..ashes to ashes, it seems. Definitely, read sundance’s post and check out the links t0 refresh your memory on the timeline.

    The ‘we don’t use government email’ dodge is quite common, most any Federal workers (few as they are) know that anything they receive/send on a Federal system’s government property and is archived. We were told many moons ago that even if we accessed our civilian email accounts on a Federal system the just touching our private accounts on an ‘official use only’ system opens them up to Federal scrutiny.
    That said, if the ash-and-trash USDA house systems are archived in their entirety what would make you think that ANYTHING which goes over a system as vital and potentially problematic as the State’s wouldn’t be too? Come on, it was ALLEGED that a State phone recording/tap reveled to investigators a State employee calling and warning Ortega that we were about to drop the Army and Air Force on him (and that wasn’t the only ALLEGED leak like that). There are a million reasons that State would record and archive everything that went over their systems, especially as there’s more interdepartmental drama going on there than at RuPaul ‘Drag Race’ taping.
    The stuff’s there and if this goes on long enough someone who has a personal reason to drop a dime on Hillary will make the call. Lest we forget, our good friends just down the road at Ft Meade have oodles and oodles of personal email accounts stored in mayonnaise jars on the late Funk & Wagnell’s porch and the email services have them stored in their own archives too. The oily thing hat gets lost forever in today’s system is someone who owes you money.

        I started to read the leaked e mails cited in this article: RT.com. They are very hard to understand for the average person (me). Question – are these for real? And, if so, how does “Sid” know so many people in high places over in war torn Libya? Is he a spy? How does he know so many overseas goings on? Yes, alot of his info is “according to source”. Was he working for the State Dept? I know he is Hillary Loyalist to the end of time. She will probably skate away.

    There are no “private” or “personal” email accounts when you work for any Federal agency. You have to divulge every email account you use for any purpose during clearance investigations.

    I’m more disgusted with the investigation panels for pretending to not know she never used her official email account.

  9. Wow. Reading that document from 17 on is simply LOADED. How does one go about proving someone’s actions are in bad faith? What teeth are there in urging the executive branch to make sure adequate training on standards is done? What is the force of law that says any actions not meeting governmental standards of operation will result in deterring punitive action?

    These are the ways Obama et al have carried off their bloodless coup of the United States of America. They dance right up the the edge of the law, and when they step over it, there’s no one to rein them back in, or slap their wrists with rulers, or do anything other than “urge” and “recommend” and “encourage” good behavior, as the judge has done above. It’s sickeningly clear.

    Who would have thought it so easy to topple the world’s greatest Superpower, the only nation in the world where the most noble of mankind’s values provided the bar to which other nations should aspire?

    I’ve been truly sickened by all that has transpired and/or been revealed this last couple weeks. I sure hope Bibi’s speech tomorrow lights some fires, but as of tonight things are looking more bleak than ever.

  10. Clinton has been at the center of this kind of crap for two decades now. Does anyone recall those FBI files her office was discovered to have during the first few years of the Clinton administration? Or Travelgate? Or that cattle futures deal where she made like a 200% profit? Dare I even say Vince Foster?
    Shit seems to happen around her, has for decades, and time and time again she and her husband get away with it.

    Jeffrey Zeifman fired her from the House Judicial Committee after the Nixon investigation because she was a liar and unethical. He refused to give her a recommendation because of how she conducted herself during that investigation. Part of her problem was that she refused to follow the rules and lied about her actions. Seems like she hasn’t changed much and there have been no consequences. She certainly has been able to prosper.

    In any other industry this would easily be a fire-able offense. Who allowed it to start in the 1st place, and who allowed it to continue? They ALL need to be fired, pensions revoked, and brought in on criminal charges. Put the handcuffs on them and those pretty orange suits. They should be made to repay all salaries, benefits, bonuses, etc. rec’d during the entire period of their criminal activities.

    Isn’t this called commingling? If just one official email came from or went to a personal account, it can be opened for review via search warrant?

    So we have her on taking illegal contributions from countries she is courting while SOS, and never using an official email account. She’s Toast for Pres. Her ship is Goin’ DOWN!

    Clintonmail.com is their own host, meaning they set up an email server and didn’t use a third party email service like gmail or yahoo mail. They would have full control over the emails that way, absolutely the shadiest thing they could have done really.
