Obama Administration Lawyers Request More Time To Review Content of Clinton’s Emails…

As you read the following media report it is important to remember: ♦ Hillary Clinton has previously stated, unequivocally, that no classified communication traveled through her self-created personal communication network. 

So what exactly is there to review?  Either the U.S. government believes the statements by the Secretary of State to be true, or they do not.

Second, ♦ the government knowingly allowed the secret communication network to exist and allowed all the construction issues therein to take place.  Therefore the burden of any administrative compliance issue should reside upon them to reconcile expeditiously.

clinton emails(The Washington Times) The Obama administration told a federal court Monday that it needs “several months” more to go through former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s government emails, saying it’s proving time-consuming to sort out exactly what information they can release to the public,

Justice Department lawyers also bristled at accusations that the government perpetrated a fraud by hiding the existence of the emails, as Mr. Obama’s team begins to fully grapple with the legal complications Mrs. Clinton has left them.

In a new filing in federal district court in Washington, the lawyers said Mr. Obama can’t be blamed for Mrs. Clinton’s email practices, which saw her set up her own server and reject use of a government-issued account, preferring to do all of her official business and personal emailing from the same address.

She belatedly provided some emails nearly two years after she left the State Department, leaving them to decide how to handle the matter.

“The department’s processing of the former secretary’s emails is underway,” John F. Hackett, acting director of the department’s Office of Information Programs and Services, said in a declaration filed in court saying they have to run the documents by other government agencies. “The department anticipates that processing this large volume of records will take several months.”

Mr. Obama’s lawyers are trying to head off a court inquiry into the emails after Judicial Watch, a conservative public interest law firm, asked a federal judge to reopen a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit seeking to pry loose communications by Huma Abedin, one of Mrs. Clinton’s top aides, who reportedly also used Mrs. Clinton’s server.  (link)

    The requested time is not for determining whether anything classified is among the emails. What will take months is chasing down all copies of the e-mails and destroying every server, hard drive, and personal device that ever had them on it. Using a team of black cross-dressers in a stolen car to break into the NSA seems to have been unsuccessful.

    They need more time for mediamatters to generate a few more media furies like Indiana and Mike Pence’s smoke and mirrors downstream underneath the bridge making Hillary’s deletion of 30,000, plus or minus, e-mails, while under subpoena, the non story the Left is seeking.

    Just think of the amount of money she is costing the taxpayers by not turning over the electronic version of the emails instead of printing out all 55,000 pages. Just that alone, printing them all out, lets the whole world know she is trying to hide something and that she is vindictive because she is being questioned. And with the government doing things in months instead of days, they are in collusion with her and we will never get an explanation. She is costing us a ton.

    I need to double check but I’m fairly certain that the WH can claim executive privilege on non classified documents. Hillary did nobody any favors in how she turned over the emails in printed form- nearly 55,000 pages that someone will either need to read through or rescan back into a document serach system.

    Gee, I’m confused. Why would it take “months” for these lawyers (and just how many lawyers does it take and who is picking up the ‘tab’ for that?) does it take to review these emails? After all, didn’t Hillary herself, assure us that she NEVER used her private server or email to send or receive any classified information? So… if Hillary didn’t LIE, there would be NO need to even review the emails, since they contain absolutely NO classified information or documents in the first place. We have Hillary’s word on it.

    it was the cover-up that got Nixon. No cover-up here, lets just move on.
    I’m kidding of course. The audacity of this administration and the leftist in general. They hide behind fictitious protections of security or exec privilege and no one in the media or authority calls them on it.
    Heck, Nixon had his Attorney General, VP, and much of his staff hung before they got him. Today we cant touch the lowliest staffer who out-briefed Hillary or the IT admin person who managed teh servers. Recall the IRS finding years later that they really had Learners hard drive, but no one asked. Their IT folks knew and said nothing or were they threatened not to say anything and thereby perpetuated a cover-up? Many should go to jail and only then will we blow the lid off this.

      Agnew had nothing to do with Watergate … he was prosecuted for taking bribes in Maryland. And, Nixon didn’t hang his ex-Attorney General. Mitchell was lumped in with all the CIA’s “Bumbling Burglars” and persecuted by a power hungry John Sirica … for a “bugging” that never happened (no operational bugs were ever found in the DNC).
      Nixon was clueless about the pre-Watergate machinations of Dean and Magruder … they lied and told him that Mitchell authorized everything.
      And Hillary? She’s just an empty (pants) suit with a creepy smirk … without any of Nixon’s amazing foreign and domestic policy record.

        You missed my point. I wasnt saying that Nixon did the hanging, rather his administration was decimated by the media, dem led congress and over zealous bureaucrats. They attacked his administration from every angle. Since there wasnt a lot of love lost between the GOP congress and Nixon, they didnt stand up for him or his administration either.

        On the other hand, Obama’s administration is sparkling with no one in jail and virtually none of them even fired for their buffoonery or the actually doing the types of things Nixon only dreamed of doing, like using the IRS or burning the tapes. Again, it was the coverup that got Nixon and now we have Hillary and Obama covering up and destroying records everywhere, yet the media, congress and the bureaucrats do absolutely nothing.

        Agree w/ Nixon’s accomplishments. In retrospect, Nixon’s China policy was profound and brilliant. He was on a path to actually win the Vietnam War and as you infer he had many other successes.

          If by “winning” the Vietnam War (which they call “the American War”) you mean achieving strategic and policy objectives, I believe that you are quite wrong.
          After the professional left emerged in America and traitors like “Hanoi Jane” could actively support the enemies of the state without repercussion, there was no way to stop the domestic coup detat.

          Yes, America endured a left wing coup of all its institutions over a period of years that made victory impossible. It made victory undesirable by the “thought leaders”. So, no victory was just around the corner. America has a new batch of November Criminals and cultural Bolsheviks that assumed the mantle from the old guard of Soviet collaborators.

          Another point about Vietnam- they are a culture steeped in suffering, endurance and warfare. They have fought the Chinese for 21 centuries, and counting (Paracels, anyone?) I highly recommend this short article, as it is NOT written from an American, Vietnamese OR Chinese viewpoint on the ’79 war and Vietnamese conflict in general http://www.bharat-rakshak.com/MONITOR/ISSUE3-3/bakshi.html

          Against the competing interests, there was never a victory to be had in Vietnam. Not by Nixon, not by any American. Perhaps without the domestic 5th columnists a form of victory could have been achievable. The 5th column would have to have been all dealt with a la Pinochet/Dzerzhinsky style, but that would have opened up a whole new can of worms.

            Yep, thought the Vietnam win comment may stir a larger discussion. Guess we’re off topic a bit, but appreciate your comments and reference. That’s a good article.
            You may enjoy the following, http://www.au.af.mil/au/awc/awcgate/milreview/mccuen08marapr.pdf
            which highlights the war fronts include one at home, where you must fight to maintain support. In Vietnam we obviously lost at home so badly we lost the war and eventually got folks like Clinton and now Kerry leading our nation vice the real heroes of Vietnam.

            Its really impossible to determine what would have happened in Vietnam had Nixon not fallen with Watergate. I wouldn’t expect a classic victory or win, but I would hope it wouldn’t have been so shameful as it turned out.

            Finally, there’s a good PBS Vietnam video online : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NXq0cgiTWpM
            Put into context, there were many things we did wrong there. Read McNamara’s book to see what he was thinking and that was scary.

    It is BS that “lawyers” are the arbiters of what is or is not classified.
    Go read http://www.dtic.mil/whs/directives/corres/pdf/520001_vol1.pdf
    I am sure DoS has a similarly worded document.

    There is a document called “classification guidance” that helps people properly portion mark material and provide the overall classification of materials. The Original Classification Authority (OCA) really has the final word.

    Attorneys? There is no good reason they are involved. The data belongs to the USG, not HRC personally.

    It is likely that her informal and sleazy way around this will come back to bite her later. Just like Obozo just could not get the Pentagon to go for “POW” status for Bergdahl. The implications that the precedent sets in either case are VERY corrosive to any functioning or longevity of the respective organizations.

    At any rate, I am sure NSA has copies of it all in their own “kompromat” folder to bend her to TPTBs will. All those late night sessions with Yellen, Napolitano and Reno will have left quite a trace in the record.

    The overwhelming majority of working americans who use email for their jobs are required to use the employer’s email system for company business. The company owns those emails — NOT you.

    The exact same thing should hold true for politicians. Even more so for them, in fact.

    Wasn’t there some earlier speculation that somehow this whole thing was part of an Obama-Clinton conflict? How would these current statements reconcile with that, or do they rather rule out such a thesis? Should this be taken as a sign that Obama actually wants Clinton to become President of the US in 2017?

      With Granholm’s comments about Martin O’Malley’s run – bordering on a threat – Obama may be figuring out that Hillary will threaten anyone else – like Warren – from even contemplating a run. If Obama could choose, he’d prefer Warren, but if Hillary is the democrat nominee, he’d prefer Hillary to Walker.

      If Huma Abedin used Hilary’s server, how do we know all the others in her inner circle did not also use it?? That would amount to a conspiracy to circumvent the normal State Dept. email system. It would also mean that her claim about all her State Dept. business emails being retreivable from the recipents (at State) is a lie. It reminds me of Hollywood movies about powerful governmental agency heads running illegal clandestine operations.

        We know that Huma used it. I have not heard Hillary’s response to possibly destroying the e mails of anther State Department employee. Before destroying the server did she give all the e mails belonging to Huma to Huma? This is going to get far more interesting from this angle than just Hillary destroying her stuff.

    I’ve followed the Clintons from the beginning of their national run. I was a big fan of the American Spectator. They are who they are, and will do what they will do. The fun begins when the Obamas want to move into the Clinton’s political mansion. And much like the BGI deal, they will use any means to get there.

    This is the newest “Rumble in the Jungle” heavyweight fight.
