Hillary Clinton Did Not Really Jeopardize National Security, Despite Accusations
By Daily Bell Staff - July 04, 2016

Nobody who knows the status of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s server is talking. … The FBI interviewed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for many hours on Saturday morning.  On Saturday afternoon CNN Senior Producer Teddy Davis tweeted “Sources tell CNN’s Evan Perez: expectation is that there will be announcement of no charges in Clinton email probe w/in next two weeks or so”.  –Washington Examiner

Hugh Hewitt, who is a national radio host and a daily blogger makes some good points in this article regarding the impossibility of knowing yet whether Hillary will be indicted or not.

Yesterday, DB, among others, posted an article mentioning that CNN’s Evan Perez had tweeted that Hillary would not be indicted.

This seems to be a general certainty among high-profile conservatives as well, including Rush Limbaugh.

Limbaugh recently mentioned in his radio program that it was not likely that Hillary would be indicted.

Indicting the presumptive nominee of a major political party would surely be seen by many as interference with the political process.

Additionally, Hillary herself has made it clear that others in government knew about her email arrangements and private server.

Barack Obama himself apparently received communications from Hillary directly and responded. Obama himself, therefore, participated in a security setup that is now seen as potentially unlawful.

If Hillary were indicted, Obama would surely be her first witness.

You thus have the following spectacle, were an indictment pursued to trial by the Justice Department:

The potential overthrow of the Democratic candidate for President and the necessity for the President of the United States himself to testify, presumably risking further civil and criminal charges himself.

But Hewitt believed that there was no way Perez could make such an assertion.

More:

Nobody who knows the status of the investigation into Clinton’s server is talking, and those who are talking as if they do — well, they simply do not know what is truly going on but have some incentive to pretend to do so.

They cannot know, in fact, unless they know (1) what has been recovered from the server by the forensic specialists working on the server and (2) the precise details of what Secretary Clinton said in her interview.

That is because 18 USC 1001 makes it a crime to make false statements to federal agents. Unless someone was in the room with Secretary Clinton who knew exactly what had been deleted, the CNN “source” would have no idea — none — of whether the investigation is close to wrapping up.

These are good points.

However Hewitt goes on to write that, while he does not know the outcome of the current investigation, he does know, “Clinton’s actions were incredibly reckless and damaged the country’s national security.”

For instance, Hewitt mentions an interview that he had conducted with on May 15, 2015 with former CIA Acting Director and long time Deputy Director Michael Morell.

HH: What did you make of the secretary of state having a private server in her house?

MM: I don’t think that was a very good judgment. I don’t know who gave her that advice, but it was not good advice, and you know, she’s paying a price for it now. Yeah, it was not good.

But if either Hewitt or Morell wanted to be perfectly truthful, they’d have to admit that the entire scenario is questionable.

Take three of the biggest supposed threats to the US at the moment: Russia, ISIS and China.

It is well known by now that Wall Street funded the Russian Revolution and that on and off the US has continued to play a powerful role in Russia’s sociopolitical evolution.

ISIS, as we discussed the other day, has admittedly been funded by the US and its allies since its inception.

And China’s Mao attended the Yale Divinity School and may actually have been a member of its notorious Skull and Bones society.

The US nominally opposed Mao but covertly did much to support his ultimate takeover of China.

In all three cases we can see that the US and its intelligence operations and certain military facilities supported entities now seen as hostile to the US.

Thanks to the Internet and what it has revealed about political systems around the world, the reality is that US “enemies” are individuals and groups funded by Western globalists.

Conclusion: The expansion of internationalism is, in fact, based on the creation of international tensions and military activities. The assumption that Hillary “jeopardized” national security is valid so far as it goes. But it doesn’t go very far at all.

    Why are they refusing to cooperate with the FBI? I hope someone kills every last one of these criminals. I’m tired of the corruption.

    • Praetor

      Don’t ask other people to do you’re dirty work. The FBI employees like their jobs, just like the Nazis employees liked their jobs. Corruption can destroy iron, iron can crumble away, given time!!!

  • Praetor

    The political process should be interfered with! The whole system as it is set-up should have a lot of interference and opposition. As a matter of fact, the system should collapse on the heads of those who created it!!!

  • Guy Christopher

    Limbaugh did not say hillary will not be indicted because he believes the media reports. i’ve heard him say quite a long time ago she is never going to be indicted by a democrat administration period, that anyone who believes otherwise doesn’t understand the dem party or obama.

    Look for the FBI director and a long list of career FBI guys to resign. Nixon’s Saturday Night Massacre in reverse.

  • “Clinton’s are fundamentally liars. They lie mercilessly even to themselves. Clinton’s lie about everything. Meaning by everything literally “every single thing”. You can’t have a simple truth from a Clinton. Even or the most insignificant thing. I guess there must be some psychiatric, anthropological and sociological explanations for that lying compulsive behavior. There’s no more racist and disgusting slogan than “I’m with her” It looks like derived from that slogan, Clinton’s are taught and trained in their bedroom not to try and do anything but oppress peoples. For that purpose they lie again and again. Clinton’s give God a bad name”

  • Bruce C.

    The political problem that is created by not indicting Hillary is a further mistrust of the US government and legal system by the American people. It’s ridiculous after this much time that it would come to this. No ordinary citizen would have been afforded so much leeway and FBI resources. At least if she were indicted it would look like the FBI was carefully collecting evidence. Not indicting her makes her look like an elitist who is above the law and that is the exact opposite of how she wants to appear to voters, especially in this election which is basically a referendum on the Washington status quo.

    • NervoLecluque

      How is it that virtually everyone in The Media glosses over the fact that Attys General before Hillary also used unsecure, personal modes of communication, yet this is being treated as unique and outrageous..
      Re below: “The Clintons are liars”……… Unlike say, the monkey-faced, smirking, moronic, mass- murdering cretin from Crawford and his crank-faced, psychotic eminence grise, Cheney? Who, along with their insane co-conspirators Rummie & Wolfie, Condoleeza and Dick Perle, lied us all – treasonously – into a 3 trillion dollar crime against humanity that led directly to the rise of ISIS and, by extension, the slaughter in Orlando. And “The Clintons are fundamentally liars”.
      Or Nixon – who took a paper bag with $1 million cash from the hand of Sam Giancana’s emissary (to pay for the Plumber’s silence)? Or the Great Gipper himself who suborned treason by selling arms to Iran for holding the hostages until election day?
      But the Clintons are the liars, and Hillary is deemed “crooked” by the latest drooling rethugnican front runner…..
      Cornell West for president!

        Select enforcement of the law can go both ways, which is why it’s so intimidating. At any time it can be enforced.

        It’s not just a bitch to “regular folks”, it can bite elites too, and maybe when they least expect it. Even if all those before her “broke the law” that is no reason to let everyone else (i.e., Hillary) slide too. And yet, THAT is her defense, and I guess you agree with it. Lucky for her, eh?

        I doubt this story is over. An indictment (and conviction) may still happen, and for the reasons I said. Things have accelerated because so many more people are informed so quickly because of the internet. The “globalists” need stealth because they are so outnumbered and their agenda is so horrendous. Therefore even one of their “sacred cows” could/should(?) be expendable, to maintain “appearances”. Think of it as a modern day “bread and circus” act, taking down an “elite” in a world believed to be run by elites. I doubt “they” will do it (“fortunately”) but IMO that’s a strategic mistake of theirs. We shall see.

        Napolitano reported that no other AG used a private server for dept emails. I believe him before you.

        • NervoLecluque

          I’ve listened to more stupid, lying, sloppy-mouthed BS coming out of the mouth of that right-wing shill than (even) the astonishingly insane Anne Coulter. The only one who tops Napolitano for mendacious foolery is the eminently shtuppable and hilariously incoherent Palin.
          99% of all the rethugnican BS – and I MEAN BS – about Hillary (lies, slander, libel etc, ad inf) has been mendacious character assassination – and it hasn’t stopped for a nano-second in 24 years. And neither has the right-wing determination to wreck the country. It’s almost a fait accompli: the structural damage to the government and economy are nearly irreparable, and the chance of any reasoned dialogue has been utterly destroyed. Now it’s all in the hands of skeevy cretins like Louie Ghomert and the truly weird Trey Gowdy. And then there’s the convicted felon Daryl Issa – who ran the Benghazi “hearings”. These august geeks are her accusers. Very impressive.

          • NARF

            Come on Nervo…you can`t possibly define the situation we find ourselves in as a country by “Party” line? PLEASE don`t tell me you THAT naive?

          • NervoLecluque

            I’m sorry……………….. Virtually every comment in this endless column is ad hoc/ad hominem right-wing fantasy based on the wildly self deluding “Party line” rantings of most if not all of the above & below.

            I refer you to Suetiggers above for another perspective.

            As for “the situation we find ourselves in”, that’s pretty funny NARF…. That’s a big “situation” to define. I notice you haven’t included any details. But, whatever it is, I’m sure it’s all the fault of the Clintons & the Obamas. And FDR – which, of course, is where we went wrong to begin with.

          • NARF

            Come on….read what I wrote….this is NOT a situation we find ourselves because ONE political party did stupid things. The US citizens were asleep at the wheel while out politicians were wined and dine by all sorts of special interests. We`ve been sold out….its a shit show thats $20+ trillion in debt….and with no discipline in sight…one that ends badly. We , along with the rest of the bankrupt world, will be force feed a new monetary system and it will be very painful.

          • RJ O’Guillory

            …no…just a paid-for-troll of a prostitute, selling out their rights, country and Constitution. Nervo needs to be in the same dock as The Bush / Clinton / Bush / Clinton / Obama Crime Cabal… charged with treason, convicted and hanged from a lamp pole somewhere in Miami. Let their bodies hang there for the birds to pick clean…and let us see if their replacements cannot follow The Constitution after that.

            Why Miami?

            I’m also a Slow-moving SOB and An arrogant c+++s_____r. I’m gonna have to have all my trophies re-engraved….
            You mean Bush is equally guilty? Hey! RJ —we’re almost on the same page!!!!

      • suetiggers

        hear, hear thanks for this “get a grip” ray of political sunshine

      • RJ O’Guillory

        …you are such an idiot …that you cannot discern the difference between The Attorney General of The United States and The Secretary of State? And you are spreading lies, previous SoS had separate e-mail addresses for their personal information, but used .gov addresses for their business e-mail, keeping in line with the law regarding FOIA and Espionage. You are either a very uninformed douche…or a poorly performing, treasonous-troll who needs to be dragged out into the streets, charged and convicted for treason…and hanged from a lamp pole.
        RJ O’Guillory

        • NervoLecluque

          I know you are, but what am I?.
          An uninformed – and, I assume treasonous – douche!!!!!!!!!! Now that made me me laugh – thanks. – I’ll add that to the list.
          Sec of State, Atty’s General – you get the point, I’m sure. I assume you were out in the street yelling for Bush & Cheney to be “hanged from lamp poles” when they were treasonously lying us into Monkey Boy’s Big Adventure.
          Hanged from a lamp pole indeed.
          By the way – I’m a veteran, spent 6 mo’s inside the Nat’l Sec’ty Agency, was on the 4th flr the day Kennedy was murdered. Where did you do your service?

          Hey – you censors at The Daily Bell: how come I got flagged and criticized for throwing around insults – but this semi-literate Irishman gets away with it?

          • RJ O’Guillory

            …as I said…charged for treason…convicted and hanged. That is what is awaiting people like you. I cannot wait for the day. You should consider putting a bullet in your own head…to spare the embarrassment your family must have to go through when they have to acknowledge your existence, It would be better if you just killed yourself tonight. Save everyone the trouble.
            RJ O’Guillory

    So if indicting someone for criminal activity “interferes with the political process,” they should be let off the hook???

    • Steven Hotho

      That’s what I was wondering. If someone is “presumptive nominee of a major potitical party” they may not be indicted for a crime that would disrupt the electoral process? Interesting!

      • Haywood Jablome

        Yep. Didn’t get their point at all. I though justice was blind. I thought our whole system was based on laws and not men. I guess DB knows better.

        Really weird article to say the least.

  • MetaCynic

    It’s probably safe to assume that Russian hackers working for Putin have copied the contents of Hillary’s server. Putin is well aware that bloodthirsty neocons like Hillary want to restart the cold war with Russia which can very well escalate into WW3. Therefore, it’s in Russia’s interest for Putin to do whatever he can to keep Hillary out of the Oval Office. So, if an indictment which could derail her campaign doesn’t happen, then the content’s of Hillary’s server may find their way onto the internet for the world to peruse. The really damning, scandalous stuff will be the files pertaining to the huge “donations” to the Clinton Foundation in return for political favors for foreign government entities during Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State.

    On Saturday afternoon CNN Senior Producer Teddy Davis tweeted “Sources
    tell CNN’s Evan Perez: expectation is that there will be announcement of
    no charges in Clinton email probe w/in next two weeks or so”.

    The CNN propaganda senior producer said that?

    “Indicting the presumptive nominee of a major political party would
    surely be seen by many as interference with the political process.”

    So it is OK for a presumptive nominee to commit a crime, or a banker, or anyone else that is above the law.

    The Supreme Court building is inscribed with the words “Equal Justice Under Law”. Should those words be sand blasted off the building?

    “And China’s Mao attended the Yale Divinity School and may actually have been a member of its notorious Skull and Bones society.

    The US nominally opposed Mao but covertly did much to support his ultimate takeover of China.”

    I read James Bradley’s “The Imperial Cruise: The Secret History of Empire and War” and “The China Mirage: The Hidden History of American Disaster in Asia”. These books describe the expansion of the Yankee Empire across the Pacific, starting with the original drug traders into China, followed by their missionaries out to convert and thus ‘civilize’ the Chinese. This bunch backed Chiang Kai-Shek’s crowd.

    In summary, Mao Zedong’s initial effort was towards true liberation, even using serious tax relief to the peasants. America snubbed Mao and that drove him to embrace and expand Communism.

    I do not recall Bradley’s mentioning that Chairman was a Yalie, let alone a Bonesman. I have read Antony Sutton’s work on America’s support of Lenin and Hitler and wondered about how China fell to a totally alien political philosophy. Can anyone please provide me references?

    Note: I am from New England and spent way too much of my life around the “Latitude of Attitude”, a band defined from 40-45 degrees North in North America. I have to agree with the stories I have read so far because they are consistent with most Yankee behavior in the social circles I have been ‘privileged’ to observe.

    Also, past presidential elections generally featured a ‘geographical diversity’ whereby the president may come from the Midwest or South and the vice president from the North, or vice versa. Except for Kennedy, from 1948-2004, no candidate residing in that “Latitude of Attitude” was elected President. Now we have a choice between two New Yorkers to succeed a Chcagolander.
