“This Is An Absolutely Corrupt Process” – Clinton’s Deleted Emails Won’t Be Released Until After The Election by Tyler Durden

 

hillary-stop-asking-and-will-stop-lying

Posted by Thomas Baldwin, Editor:  Note added by editor.  It looks as if we may have our answers to these questions from Julian Assange before our corrupt government can produce.  The Obama administration has shown it’s quiet willingness to protect Hillary Clinton and Obstruct Justice from its corruption in the Department of Justice and the State Department.  Thank goodness for whistleblowers!

Published from Zero Hedge, unedited’

Sep 23, 2016 2:59 PM

One month ago, we reported that the State Department announced some good and some bad news for transparency advocates was disclosed, when Hillary Clinton’s former employer said it would release all of the deleted work-related emails that the FBI recovered from Hillary Clinton’s private system, eliminating the possibility that the messages will remain secret. The State Dept had “voluntarily” agreed to produce non-exempt agency records responsive to Judicial Watch’s FOIA request. That was the good news. The bad news was that as we said, it remains unclear if the full set of emails would be released by the presidential election on Nov. 8.

Now we know the answer: no, it won’t.

According to a new timetable set Friday by a federal judge, most of Hillary Clinton’s deleted, and then recovered, emails won’t be made public until after Election Day. As the WSJ reports, Judge James Boasberg on Friday ordered the State Department to finish processing 1,050 pages of material for release by Nov. 4—just a fraction of what could be as much as 10,000 pages of material. 

The farcical development, and latest confirmation of corruption at all echelons of US government, was revealed when the judge set the new timetable, which previously was expected to play out in the coming weeks, after acknowledging that the State Department was struggling to manage the burden of dozens of lawsuits and thousands of requests for records from Mrs. Clinton’s time in office.

In other words, because Clinton has been sued so many times for non-compliance with subpoenas, for destroying evidence, for purging servers, for crushing cell phones with hammers, and generally for hiding information, the State Department – with its thousands of government employees – is unable to provide the public with what may be the most important glimpse into Hillary’s allegedly criminal activities: the not so arbitrary deletion of up to 15,000 emails.

According to the WSJ, the new schedule would push the release of most of the newly discovered emails past Election Day, at which point not even the most scandalous revelations would have any impact on the outcome of who is America’s next president.

To be sure, some emails will be made public: the first batch, appropriately filtered to exclude any sensitive topics, is due to be released on Oct. 7, with two other pre-Election Day releases scheduled for Oct. 21 and Nov. 4. After that, the State Department has committed processing 500 pages a month.

The State Department says it has identified roughly 15,000 email messages to or from Mrs. Clinton that the FBI recovered and turned over to the State Department. Of those 15,000, about 9,400 have been deemed purely personal and will be excluded from release, according to lawyers representing the Department.  Another 5,600 emails were deemed work-related but State Department attorneys warned that up to 50% of those are duplicates of emails that Mrs. Clinton already turned over.

It is worth repeating: nearly 6,000 work-related emails were deleted by the same person who assured Congress that none such emails were purged, and only personal stuff was “BitBleached.”

As the WSJ adds, department lawyers said they aren’t sure how many total pages the newly discovered emails comprise but that each email comprised on average about 1.8 pages, they said.

But while this legal travesty should infuriate all Americans, no matter if on the left or right, the one person most outraged was Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton, the man single-handedly responsible for the countless of Clinton emails revealed in the past year (whatever happened to independent, investigative media), who said that “the American people could be deprived of this information at this essential time.”

“this is an absolutely corrupt process the State Department has come up with,” Fitton said, blaming the department for the continuing delays.

As a reminder the either blatantly corrupt, criminal or merely grossly incompetent FBI closed its investigation into Hillary without recommending any charges, although recent Reddit revelations that Hillary’s tech aide had sought outside assistance to purge her email server, provides some hope that some less corrupt government organization, clearly not the FBI, may actually get to the bottom of Hillary’s ongoing email scandal. That said, having seen how the US legal system works, we are not holding our breath.

Judicial Watch Statement on New Clinton Email Court Developments

SEPTEMBER 23, 2016

EmailPrintText Size

State Says 5600 of 15,100 Emails Recovered by FBI Were

Government Records, Not Personal as Claimed by Clinton

 As Many As 350 Pages of Documents are Due to Judicial Watch by October 7, and As Many As 1,050 pages by November 4

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton made the following statement regarding today’s decision by U.S. District Court Judge James E. Boasberg ordering the Department of State to begin processing at least 1,050 pages of Hillary Clinton emails recovered by the FBI and provide Judicial Watch all non-exempt documents before November 4:

“The State Department admitted that it has 5,600 Clinton emails recovered by the FBI that were government documents and not personal emails as she claimed. The public deserves to know what is in those emails, well before November 8, and the State Department should not continue dragging its feet on producing them.  The State Department admitted in court today it pulled staff off of Clinton email Freedom of Information Act requests. The American people need to pressure State to stop sitting on these new Clinton emails for political reasons and release them as the law requires.  It is outrageous the State Department has had these new Clinton emails since late July, but has only released 5 records.”

The court ordered State to process the first 350 pages of documents by October 7, the second 350 pages by October 21, and the third by November 4.  (The State Department claims a substantial number of the Clinton emails may be duplicative or near-duplicative of emails Hillary Clinton previously turned over to the State Department.)

The State Department today confirmed that the FBI discovered 15,100 new Clinton emails as a result of Judicial Watch’s litigation seeking all of Mrs. Clinton’s work related emails (Judicial Watch, Inc. v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:15-cv-00687)).  In late October, Judge Boasberg ordered the State Department to report to the court the volume of records from disk one (of seven at issue) that it has reviewed and be prepared to commit to a production schedule for today’s hearing.

In the following two videos, the spokesmen maintain separately  in interviews that the Clinton Foundation (a 501 (C) 3 non profit) has taken in as  much as $100 billion dollars in the Foundation and associated other organizations.  This is a gross violation of IRS laws as well as domestic law.  Listen to these videos and you will immediately ask the question “is the FBI so inept or corrupt it could not disclose these violations.  James Comey said about Hillary Clinton’s emails that she was ‘extrenely careless”.  That proves to be the understatement of the decade and when this corruption is fully investigated, Comey will eat those words. THIS IS OBVIOUSLY THE REASON HILLARY CLINTON USED HER PRIVATE SERVER TO CONDUCT BUSINESS WHILE SHE WAS IN THE STATE DEPARTMENT, IN VIOLATION OF MANY DIFFERENT FEDERAL AND STATE  LAWS!!

Financial expert Charles Ortel says the Clintons’ real problem is outright charity fraud when it comes to the Clinton Foundation. Ortel explains, “On the other hand, on charity fraud, it’s a very different thing. In charity fraud, unlike pay-to-play, you don’t have to prove intent. Under New York State law, in particular, the requirement is merely that you prove the public filings in the Clinton Foundation are false and materially misleading, and they certainly are. This is why you are starting to see these editorial boards around the world say wait a minute. You also have to prove that they solicited, not that they raised money, that they solicited. That, the Clintons have admitted. . . . On the charity fraud side of life, that is the mine field for the Clintons. The second the IRS, or any attorney general or a state taxing authority, decides to make an issue of this, the burden of proof shifts . . . the charity has to come forward and prove the affirmative case. The Clinton Foundation has to prove, since October 23, 1997, that all you have been doing exclusively is furthering the authorized tax exempted purposes, which as far as I know is, to be merely a research facility and archive based in Little Rock. Prove that’s all you have done. Show us the legally audited financial statements. Show us those audits.”

In closing, Ortel contends, “This is a tale that needs to be told, but it’s not going to be a tale that people swallow at first blush given the fact how powerful the Clintons are or how vengeful the Clintons are when they are in power. . . . Another way to talk about the Clintons is the Bonnie and Clyde of charity or the Al Capone of charity.”

Will Julian Assange Drop the big “Email Bomb” on this Corrupt Clinton Campaign and the Democratic Party? by Thomas Baldwin

28-assange-clinton-w560-h375

“In times of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act!” 

—–George Orwell

For weeks now, Julian Assange has been releasing devastating emails and documents disclosing the magnitude of the corruption of the Democratic National Party and Hillary Clinton.  The origin of the “intervention” in the present campaign was essentially the Congressional investigation of the Benghazi fiasco in which four Americans, including an Ambassador, lost their lives following the bombing and destruction of Libya by U.S. and NATO forces.  There was also the brutal murder of Gaddafi in the streets which provided Hillary Clinton with a joyful psychopathical laugh:  “We came, we saw, he died”. 

What was finally uncovered in these extensive investigations was that Hillary Clinton had used a private email server (and address) in her home to conduct both private and business related communications for essentially all communications during her time as Secretary of State.  This was analogous to the discovery that Richard Nixon had collected audio tapes of illegal activities in his administration.   The results of that investigation eventually led to threats of impeachment and Nixon’s resignation from the presidency.

The “lost” emails, some of which were deleted after the State Department demanded all work related emails be returned to them has been a primary challenge of both the State Department and finally the FBI.  On the surface this appears to be a blatant Obstruction of Justice.  Many thousands of Clinton emails while she was at the State Department were never turned over and some were said to be deleted.  Many of those suggest that a large numbers of communications were made regarding the Clinton Foundation in addition to those dealing with Libya during that time of disaster.  Clinton clearly lied before Congress during the Benghazi hearings and now the FBI has been asked to investigate the charges that she perjured herself. Unfortunately, which no one understands, the FBI did not question her under oath during their inquiry.

Some of these emails have been made public through FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) from suits brought by Judicial Watch.  However, there are still many thousands to be released to the public for viewing.  All of this time, Julian Assange from his exiled position in the Ecuadorian Embassy in the UK has also been releasing emails regarding both Clinton’s tenure at State and also from the DNC showing they had planned from the beginning to rig and prejudice the upcoming elections in Clinton’s favor against Bernie Sanders. Those were released just before the Democratic Convention and led to some personnel being fired at the DNC, including the Chairperson, Debbie Wasserman-Shultz.

Assange has continuously explained that he has thousands of  more emails, cables and other communications relevant to these investigations that have never been seen or released.  In fact, he has suggested that he has seen enough information to clearly indict Clinton, but he is skeptical that AG Lynch will do so because she is operating a corrupt Justice Department on Clinton’s behalf.

When FBI Direcctor James Comey made his public announcement giving the status of their investigation as to whether Clinton violated national security law he gave a damning report but said he could find no evidence of “intent” to violate the law. But many documents were “confidential” or extremely sensitive.  But the legal language only requires “gross negligence’ and Comey said they concluded she was “extremely careless”, as if those are different things.  But Comey gave no indication that he had or intended to examine how the private servor was also used by Clinton to conduct the Clinton Foundation “Pay to Play” scandal (racket) where billions of dollars of weapons were approved for countries who had blatantly violated human rights.  These weapon sales were strongly correlated to  huge millions of dollars donated to the Clinton Foundation.  All kinds of donation increased immensely during Clinton’s tenure at State and their speaking fees mushroomed  also.  Their net work is well over 100 millions dollars now and the Foundation has acquired billions of dollars of “donations.” 

Clinton and the Democrats supporting her maintain that doesn’t “prove” pay to play and they expect us to believe that!  The remaining emails may well contain that information and the circumstantial evidence is already huge.

So my best guess (and hope)  is that Julian Assange will drop the Big Bomb soon.  People are impatient, but Assange has explained what a massive task it is to go through as many as 100,000 emails (with few staff).  He has assured us it will be before the election and even suggested it will start before the debates.  One thing I’ve observed:  Julian Assange doesn’t exaggerate and he has never misled us.  So my bet is with him, not the corrupt politicians who are leading the Democratic Party and the Clinton crime syndicate.  We may soon know the results even before the first presidential debate and it will be hard for even the corporate media to ignore that! The corporate media and the pundiets have shown no indication they even know this is coming.  So the last laugh may come with those of us who support whistle blowers like Julian Assange who are the real heroes of truth tellers!

 

We Cannot Live Without Water by Lee Burkett + DA PL Controversy

water-conservation

 Here’s the thing:
Who can pretend not to understand?
We cannot live without water.
What I see now is one of the last great exploitations. The Earths resources have been exploited, with all the destruction we’re living in. Take a walk, and before you go too far, you’ll see the Earth scarred for mining or fracking, you’ll see pipelines, you’ll smell the bad air.
Food has been exploited. Homes have been exploited. Labor has been exploited. Entire generations have been exploited.
This has happened. Who can pretend not to understand?
We cannot live without water.
Now what is being exploited is our belief, our faith that despite all the evidence of our eyes and our intellect to the contrary, the still lingering hope that somehow the people deciding our future will make the right choice.
They have lied and lied and lied, and we forgive or forget, because we want to believe. They do what they will and we are tasked with following them, creating our justifications for doing so.
Who can pretend not to understand?
We cannot live without water.
This, what is happening now, is the last great exploitation, the last great harvest they will ever make.
The water is disappearing, the land is destroyed, our labor now amounts to slavery, but still we have had hope.
Now they are taking even that, by their actions, by their hubris and pride. They now take even our hope to use as another tool against us.
Who can pretend not to understand?
We cannot live without water.
What can we do? Stop giving them your hope. Take it away from them. Don’t believe them anymore. Don’t believe in them anymore.
Who can pretend not to understand?
We cannot live without water.

Erased By False Victory: Obama Hasn’t Stopped DAPL

 

(Insert by Rita Stanley.)  Remember to read the fine print especially when Obama–or any other pol–sets himself up as helping the People. And with the corporate media’s compliance, of course.

What’s not to trust?

The illusion of victory is designed for illogical cheering and for the People to let their guards down, so things will slip through quietly in the night. And after the next election.

excerpts:

“…So what did the federal government do? Probably the smartest thing they could have: They gave us the illusion of victory….”

Headlines like, “Obama administration orders ND pipeline construction to stop” and “The Obama Administration Steps In to Block the Dakota Access Pipeline” began to fill my newsfeed, with comments like, “Thank God for Obama!” attached to them.

Clearly, a major plot twist has occurred. But it’s not the one that’s being sold.

To understand that this isn’t the victory it’s being billed as, you have to read the fine print in the presently lauded joint statement from the Department of Justice, the Department of the Army and the Department of the Interior:

“The Army will not authorize constructing the Dakota Access pipeline on Corps land bordering or under Lake Oahe until it can determine whether it will need to reconsider any of its previous decisions regarding the Lake Oahe site under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) or other federal laws.”

Note what’s actually being said here, what’s being promised and what isn’t.

What is actually being guaranteed?

Further consideration.

But this next section is a little more promising, right?

“Therefore, construction of the pipeline on Army Corps land bordering or under Lake Oahe will not go forward at this time. The Army will move expeditiously to make this determination, as everyone involved — including the pipeline company and its workers — deserves a clear and timely resolution. In the interim, we request that the pipeline company voluntarily pause all construction activity within 20 miles east or west of Lake Oahu.”

So things are on hold at Lake Oahe until the powers that be think it through some more — with no assurances about how they’ll feel when it’s all said and done. The rest is a voluntary ask being extended to the company…

Here’s the real story: This fight has neither been won nor lost. Our people are rising and they are strong. But the illusion of victory is a dangerous thing. Some embrace it because they don’t know better, some because they need to. We all want happy endings. Hell, I long for them, and I get tired waiting. But if you raise a glass to Obama and declare this battle won, you are erasing a battle that isn’t over yet. And by erasing an ongoing struggle, you’re helping to build a pipeline.”

The Bill and Hillary Clinton Giant Pay to Play Scandals by Thomas Baldwin

Under Hillary Clinton, the State Department approved $165 billion worth of… 
IBTIMES.COM|BY DAVID SIROTA
 

This post is supplemental to the primary publication by David Sirota in IBTIMES.COM listen above below the Clinton photo.  These are tables of data which Sirota published over a year ago and did not easily reproduce in earlier publications.  They are VERY STRONG CIRCUMSTANTIAL  EVIDENCE FOR AN OFFICIAL “PAY TO PLAY” RACKET RUN BY THE STATE DEPARTMENT AND THE CLINTON FOUNDATION.  And from other publications beginning to appear these data are only the tip of the iceberg, as more emails are about to be released.  For example they do not include many other donations which may have been corporate and made by the very wealthy individuals (the .01%).  Hopefully, the next release of information from Julian Assange will disclose more strong evidence for the vast crimes the Clintons committed.

And perhaps FBI Director James Comey will reopen his investigation and do his job. Perhaps then he will ind the INTENT of the Clintons in establishing her private server in her home and sending “personal emails”, many of which were said to be “deleted or not forwarded to the State Department as required by law.  Many of those “missing” emails . were clearly directly related to Clinton Foundation business.  Bill and Hillary Clinton should both be prosecuted and sent to prison for many years.

It is reported that Attorney General Lynch denied the authority to Comey to investigate the Foundation.  Someone should confront Lynch AND Obama and ask WHY?  They clearly are giving the impression that they are participating in a COVERUP!  Obama must have known about this “Pay to Play” racket as it was going on right underneath his nose for at least four years!

IT’S TIME THAT THE OBAMA JUSTICE DEPARTMENT STAND FOR JUSTICE!

Clinton Foundation Donors Get Big Weapons Deals

Note:  Since these figures were first published by Sirota more ahn a year ago, many of them will need to be revised UPWARD!. For example, Bahrain was separately reported to have donated 35 million dollars and Saudi Arabia gave tens of millions of dollar in additon to the amounts listed.  These won’t be known accurately, including the dates at which the donations were made until the books of the Clinton Foundation are seized and analyzed in detail.

Scary (not really): Hillary Clinton’s “Nanna Nanna Boo Boo” Speech Demonizes Folks for “Thinking Outside the Norm”

American Everyman

by Scott Creighton

Well OK then.

Hillary Clinton’s team has apparently decided to counter all the horrible news that came out about her this past week regarding her “pay to play” policy at the State Department by pointing a finger at Donald Trump and proclaiming “nanna nanna boo boo, you’re racist doo doo”

That’s literally all they have. That’s it. That’s what they got. “Don’t pay attention to our Republican-leaning neocon-backed warmongering “Democratic Party” candidate’s VAST record of MAJOR criminal activity because… Trump knows some racists”

That’s it. That’s the campaign strategy, apparently scripted by the dim-witted middle school kids running her campaign.

This is nothing new, really. Whenever another Clinton family crime is rudely mentioned during this campaign, suddenly The Donald magically becomes even more racist than he was the day before and it’s always by some form of 6 degrees of separation:

“The Donald is supported by David…
