According to media reports, some of the FBI recovered emails from their investigation into Hillary Clinton’s records have a relationship to the events in/around the Benghazi Libya attack on Sept. 11th 2012.
(WASHINGTON)— The State Department says about 30 emails involving the 2012 attack on U.S. compounds in Benghazi, Libya, are among the thousands of Hillary Clinton emails recovered during the FBI’s recently closed investigation into her use of a private server.
Government lawyers told U.S. District Court Judge Amit P. Mehta Tuesday that an undetermined number of the emails among the 30 were not included in the 55,000 pages previously provided by Clinton to the State Department. The agency said it would need until the end of September to review the emails and redact potentially classified information before they are released. (read more)
Unfortunately, there is a certain kind of predictability with this latest news release. Those of you familiar with the full Benghazi Brief, will remember the congressional oversight responsibilities within the Congressional Intelligence Gang of Eight.
It’s not just Hillary Clinton that wants this stuff quiet, it is also Republicans in congress.
CTH has often warned there would be a certain amount of political usefulness for Hillary within the untold story of how congressional leadership -from both political parties- were fully informed of the Panetta (CIA) and Clinton (State Dept.) operations within Libya/Syria.
In essence, Hillary can -at any time- leverage the fact that congress was aware of everything going on. It’s her primary security card that, in our opinion, ensured there would be no actual legal fallout from the Libya/Syria engagements throughout 2011 and 2012.
The Gang of Eight in 2011 would have included: House Speaker – John Boehner, Minority Leader – Nancy Pelosi; House Permanent Select Committee on Intel Chairman – Mike Rogers, and his Democrat counterpart Charles Ruppersberger; Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid; along with Senate Intel Chair Diane Feinstein and her Republican counterpart, Saxby Chambliss.
Republican Go8 members on the House and Senate intelligence oversight committees hold just as much risk from sunlight. There is a strong possibility that Clinton’s Ace-Card, continues to be this oversight element; or more aptly, the collapse/willful blindness therein.
Knowing how the Clinton’s operate, and fully accepting the administration has control over the key administrative functions of government (Kerry = State, Comey = FBI, Brennan = CIA), it becomes entirely possible for the security apparatus to protect the vested interests of Hillary Clinton which are in alignment with their larger organizational objectives of the UniParty.
Unfortunately, in modern U.S. politics, conspiracies are not always just theory.
