    Fox News: State Department identifies 23 violations, ‘multiple security incidents’ concerning Clinton emails

    “The State Department revealed Monday that it has identified “multiple security incidents” involving current or former employees’ handling of Hillary Clinton’s emails, and that 23 “violations” and 7 “infractions” have been issued as part of the department’s ongoing investigation….”

    “…”In every instance in which the Department found an individual to be culpable of a valid security violation or three or more infractions, the Department forwarded the outcome to the Bureau of Diplomatic Security’s Office of Personnel Security and Suitability (DS/PSS), to be placed in the individuals’ official security file,” Taylor wrote. “All valid security incidents are reviewed by DS and taken into account every time an individual’s eligibility for access to classified information is considered.”


    “…”A significant filter team” was employed at the FBI, Strzok said, to “work through the various terms of the various consent agreements.” Limitations imposed on agents’ searches included date ranges, and names of domains and people, Strzok said, among other categories.”

    “The agreement was reached, Strzok said, because “according to the attorneys, we lacked probable cause to get a search warrant for those servers and projected that either it would take a very long time and/or it would be impossible to get to the point where we could obtain probable cause to get a warrant.” ”

    “…The DOJ’s goal, Chaffetz said, was to “make sure they hear no evil, see no evil — they had no interest in pursuing the truth.” ”

      Starting Day 1 at the NSA should have given them a road map.

    If Kyle Kashuv is going to be kicked out of Harvard, @RalphNortham should be kicked out of the Governor’s mansion.

    Both engaged in practically the same thing, so let’s have some consistency.

    If the CIA won’t respond to the orders of the President of the United States, WHO IS in charge?

    It sounds like a heavily armed rifle company of United States Marines needs to enter the CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia, with automatic weapons to seize what needs to be seized and shoot anyone who dares to prevent the surrender of the files. We have an elected President and he has issued his orders. We did not elect anyone at the CIA to run the country.

      I tend to agree. This insurrection is way out of hand compared to any I’ve seen in near 7 decades. Since DOJ, FBI, CIA are executive, there must not be any refusal. Fire all that refuse and let the chips fall where they may for the good (and future) of the USA constitution and We The People.

        Yes, whatever is legal. Is Barr really powerless, or is he just triple confirming who the Deep State power players are?

        I thought NSA had *everything*?

    • If the Corps is busy, a bunch of us draftees from the 60’s will be more than glad to donate our time free of charge. Do they still issue M14’s with 20 round clips? Don’t need earplugs; we’ll just take our hearing aids out. And, we’ll need walkers and wheel chairs with brakes to prevent roll-back when firing. Dammit – I think I lost my P38 opener for the C’s.

      • We thank you for your service.

        No, we can never retroactively explain exactly why you were called to do it. But you answered the call … and, somehow, you survived.

        To those of you who did, and to those of you who didn’t …

    Barr could issue Grand Jury subpoenas for the classified documents since federal judges have clearance.

    I hope you see this as I was scanning through the federal register and notice this.


    Consistent with Executive Order 13526, the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) is providing greater clarity about the procedures under which it may provide historical researchers and certain former Government personnel with access to classified CIA information. This rule is being issued as a final rule without prior notice of proposed rulemaking as allowed by the Administrative Procedure Act for rules of agency procedure and interpretation.

    Effective September 19, 2016.

    Joseph W. Lambert, (703) 613-1379.

    Maybe this is common knowledge but my ears perk up whenever I see a late term Executive Order come through and in this case is was Sept 19, 2016 and seems to give more access to CIA information by journalists???

    I hope you might look at and comment if it is pertinent.

  11. Just saw this over at TGP…https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2019/06/paul-manafort-was-headed-to-notorious-and-dangerous-rikers-island-jail-then-ag-bill-barrs-deputy-intervened/

    Attorney General Bill Barr’s new Deputy Jeffrey Rosen, sent a letter to Manhattan prosecutors warning them he is monitoring where Paul Manafort would be held in New York, reported the New York Times.

    Manhattan prosecutors were surprised to receive a letter from the second-highest law enforcement official in the country inquiring about Mr. Manafort’s case. The letter, from Jeffrey A. Rosen, Attorney General William P. Barr’s new top deputy, indicated that he was monitoring where Mr. Manafort would be held in New York.

    And then, on Monday, federal prison officials weighed in, telling the Manhattan district attorney’s office that Mr. Manafort, 70, would not be going to Rikers.

    Instead, he will await his trial at a federal lockup in Manhattan or at the Pennsylvania federal prison where he is serving a seven-and-a-half-year sentence for wide-ranging financial schemes, according to people with knowledge of the matter.

    This move by Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen was described as “unusual” by Department of Justice officials.

    Todd Blanche, a lawyer for Paul Manafort said the DOJ intervening is unusual, however , he argued that Manafort shouldn’t be facing state charges for the same ‘crimes’ he was already charged with on a federal level.

    “You’ll find no example of someone like Mr. Manafort being prosecuted by the feds and then by the district attorney for exactly the same conduct,” Mr. Blanche said.

    According to the New York Times, Manafort is to be arraigned next we

    Just a reminder, flash from the past, that the Podesta emails not only verified polls are rigged for results they want, but the Democrats colluded with the media in rigging those polls.


    Now, for all of you out there who still aren’t convinced that the polls are “adjusted”, we present to you the following Podesta email, leaked earlier today, that conveniently spells out, in detail, exactly how to “manufacture” the desired data. The email starts out with a request for recommendations on “oversamples for polling” in order to “maximize what we get out of our media polling.”

    “I also want to get your Atlas folks to recommend oversamples for our polling before we start in February. By market, regions, etc. I want to get this all compiled into one set of recommendations so we can maximize what we get out of our media polling.”

    The email even includes a handy, 37-page guide with the following poll-rigging recommendations.

        Hey, networks are in business to make money. It will be a close race by polls to raise more money by campaigns, which spend advertising dollars on their networks.

        If actual polling showed a Trump landslide, it would not work well for income generation.
