STUPID IS AS STUPID DOES – FORREST GUMP

Clinton Shrugs Off Question About Wiping Server Clean

Aug 19 — Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton spoke to the press after a town hall meeting today in Las Vegas on Tuesday. No surprise, the topic on everyone’s mind was the controversy surrounding her e-mails. When pressed by Fox’s Ed Henry as to whether she wiped the server clean, Clinton replied, “What, like with a cloth or something?” She went on to admit, “I don’t know how it works digitally at all.”

Yo, Ho haul together, hoist the colours high
Heave ho, thieves and beggars, never shall we die
Yo, Ho haul together, hoist the colours high
Heave ho, thieves and beggars, never shall we die
The King and his men stole the queen from her bed
and bound her in her bones
The seas be ours and by the powers
Where we will…we’ll roam
Yo, Ho haul together, hoist the colours high
Heave ho, thieves and beggars, never say we die
Some men have died and some are alive
And others sail on the sea
With the keys to the cage
And the devil to pay
We lay to Fiddler’s Green!
Yo, Ho haul together, hoist the colours high
Heave ho, thieves and beggars, never shall we die
The bell has been raised from its watery grave
Do you hear its sepulchral tone?
A Call to all, pay heed to the squall
And turn your sail towards home!
Yo, Ho haul together, hoist the colours high
Heave ho, thieves and beggars, never shall we die

The contagious toxicity of Hillary Clinton’s email scandal

Edward Morrissey

Until this summer, Democrats mostly figured that Hillary Clinton’s email scandal was one big nothingburger. This nonsense is nothing more than an unjustified conservative attack on a highly accomplished individual who is all but assured of being elected America’s first female president, they insisted. The whole thing will soon fade from the headlines, they blindly assured themselves.

Oops.

For too long, Democrats bought Clinton’s repeated defenses of her exclusive use of a private server while she ran the State Department. They believed that this potential security violation really was for her convenience, that she had copied other State Department addresses to preserve “90 percent” of her communications, and that no classified material was transmitted through the unauthorized and unsecured system. And if that had indeed all been true, Democrats might well have been right that the storm would pass, as has happened with other scandals involving the Clintons.

But one by one, those excuses have fallen by the wayside. The convenience argument fell apart almost immediately. Clinton claimed in a March press conference that she used the private server to limit her mobile devices to a single smartphone when traveling. That excuse made little sense, since any secretary of state travels with staff, who handle communications devices for their boss. Just a few weeks prior to that, Clinton had bragged about all of the high-tech communications devices she carried around. “I’m like two steps short of a hoarder. So I have an iPad, a mini iPad, an iPhone, and a BlackBerry.”

As for copying the State Department on her communications, the State Department itself couldn’t find any evidence for this claim. It turns out that their archival processes were mostly failing during this period of time anyway, a point that Team Hillary tried to use in her favor last week. That, however, ignores the fact that Hillary Clinton was the secretary of state when these State Department systems were failing, and apparently did nothing about it.

That leaves Democrats with the no-classified-material pledge from March’s presser — and that defense has already been walked back more than once. Clinton insisted at the time that she had never sent or received classified material through the system, but when classified material emerged from four emails out of 40 inspected, the defense shifted. Suddenly, Clinton claimed that any material transmitted through the system hadn’t been marked as classified at the time, even though two inspectors general made it clear that the material they found — including top secret intelligence — was “classified when they were sent and are classified now.” The Washington Times and other media outlets now report that intelligence community inspectors general have found an additional 300 emails in the system that likely contain classified materials, after inspecting 20 percent of the communications turned over by Clinton. That’s one in every 20 emails.

This should be hugely worrying to Democrats.

The FBI has taken a serious interest in Platte River Services, where the Clintons sent their server after her time at the State Department. ABC News quotes a company official as saying it’s “highly likely” they have a back-up of the server that includes the emails deleted by Clinton’s legal team. If any of those turn out to be work-related, contain classified material, or are responsive to FOIA and Congressional demands for documentation, it’s not unreasonable to wonder whether the former secretary of state may be in too much legal trouble to continue her campaign.

But even in a nightmare scenario where Clinton has to bow out of the race, Democrats could at least rest easy that the email scandal was isolated to Hillary Clinton. Except maybe they can’t.

Indeed, a new reversal by the State Department in a FOIA case risks painting the entire Democratic establishment with the same scandal-red brush. And it may be that an internet scandal sheet will be the prime mover.

In 2013, Gawker filed a FOIA demand to access the emails between Philippe Reines, deputy assistant secretary of state and a longtime Hillary Clinton aide, and various news media outlets and reporters. At the time, the State Department answered in court that they could find no documents responsive to the FOIA demand. Gawker spent significant amounts of time and resources suing the State Department for the data, which should have been publicly available through the Federal Records Act. Last week, the State Department finally admitted to the court that they had found more than 81,000 of Reines’ emails, and that over 17,800 of them were “likely responsive” to the FOIA demand.

These emails did not come from the private Clinton email server, from which Reines produced 20 cartons of printed emails for State to archive and inspect. The 17,800-plus emails identified by State in its court filing came from its own systems, which State had in its possession all along. Any explanation for the sudden discovery of so many emails after a blanket denial, other than willful obstruction, would beggar belief.

This is a really big deal. Until now, the transparency and honesty issue has focused solely on Hillary Clinton. However, by early 2013, Clinton had left the State Department. John Kerry had taken over as secretary of state. If the lack of transparency was limited to the State Department under Hillary Clinton’s direction, then why did it continue under Kerry — and in such an obviously clumsy way?

It is entirely possible, and frankly likely, that the lack of transparency didn’t start and end with Hillary Clinton, although she may have pushed it to the point of damaging national security. Though liberals are loathe to admit it, the Obama administration has too often suppressed transparency, be it the Department of Justice in the Operation Fast and Furious scandal or the IRS or now the State Department.

And because of that, Clinton’s scandal could stick to the two men getting the most mention as possible emergency replacements for her in the Democratic primary. John Kerry’s State Department seemed perfectly willing to hide Clinton’s potential issues from public oversight. How could he take the 2016 mantle from her? And if Joe Biden ran for president, the argument for his candidacy would explicitly rest on continuity from the Obama years — years in which those in power tried to manipulate courts and avoid legitimate oversight.

If this scandal gets any worse, Democrats may have no one left to rescue them from a disaster of their own making.

Hillary Clinton gets testy when pressed on email

8/18/15

A restive crowd waited for an hour in a packed and warm gymnasium at a community center in North Las Vegas, one of the poorer neighborhoods of the glitzy city, for the chance to ask Hillary Clinton some questions.When she arrived Tuesday afternoon, a dozen supporters — many waving both hands in the air to get her attention in the circular town hall setup — got their opportunity. They asked her about gun laws, stand your ground laws, and what she would do to support LGBT rights. The crowd was excited, cheering for both the questions and the answers. One woman simply asked for a hug (Clinton promised she would give her one when she finished her Q&A); a child’s voice piped up to ask if Clinton would earn as much as a man if she becomes president. Throughout the hourlong town hall, Clinton appeared relaxed and loose.

Close to an hour later, the Democratic front-runner faced another group who had waited patiently to ask her questions: the press. This time, in an empty and quiet gymnasium, Clinton grew testy as the back-and-forth with reporters became more heated and focused pointedly on her emails and her use of a private server while she served as secretary of state.

“What was supposed to be convenient has turned out to be anything but convenient,” she said, reiterating that she “wants Americans to understand” that when it comes to whether or not she sent or received any classified emails, the process would be the same whether or not she had used a government account. “It has nothing to do with me and it has nothing to do with the fact that my account was personal,” she said of inspectors general investigations into whether or not classified material was discovered.

“Isn’t leadership about taking responsibility?” she was asked.

“I take responsibility … in retrospect this didn’t turn out to be convenient at all,” she said. “And I regret that this had to become such a cause celebre,” reiterating that what she did was legal and she has tried to be helpful to law enforcement agencies.

“No matter what anyone tries to say, the facts are stubborn,” Clinton said. “What I did was legally permitted, first and foremost. No. 2, I turned over an abundance of [emails in] an attempt to be helpful, over anything that I thought was vaguely related [to work]… and I said make them public.” She acknowledged “anxiety” about it, but stated: “The facts are the facts.”

The Justice Department is now investigating whether there was any improper handling of sensitive material. Clinton’s campaign has said she is not the target of the probe.

But when pressed multiple times about whether she had tried to wipe her entire email server clean, Clinton was not able to answer the question.

“I don’t know, I have no idea,” she said. “Like with cloth or something? I don’t know how it works digitally at all. I know you want to make a point, I will just repeat what I have said: in order to be cooperative as possible, we have turned over the server … we turned over everything that was work-related. Every single thing.”

As she exited the gymnasium, a reporter asked her if the questions were an indication that the email controversy isn’t going away, and will dog her campaign into next year.

Clinton turned around, her hands raised in the air in a shrug. “Nobody talked to me about it — other than you guys,” she said, and then exited with her top aides around her.

The dichotomy between the discussion at Clinton’s town hall and the one that followed with the press has existed for months, as controversies surrounding the Clinton Foundation and her email use as secretary of state have swirled around her campaign. Campaign operatives and surrogates maintain that it shows that voters don’t care about what’s in Clinton’s email — they care about policy proposals that affect their lives.

In that vein, Clinton on Tuesday was again eager to draw a contrast with Republicans on issues that will motivate voters in a general election.

“I don’t know how many of you watched that debate,” she said, “Seventeen candidates. … not one word about college affordability, not one word about equal pay for equal work, not one word about dealing with criminal justice and mass incarceration and that black lives matter.” The crowd cheered.

The campaign sent out a news release after the event touting that “Hillary Clinton Drives Core Economic Contrast at Town Hall in Las Vegas.”

But it’s not that the supportive crowd here on Tuesday and others like it that come out to see Clinton do not care about the email controversy, or are not paying attention. Some admitted that even though they like her, they worry it makes her too vulnerable in a general election.

“I’m concerned about that because Republicans could take that and make her look really, really bad,” admitted Otistine Brown, a retired school teacher from Las Vegas, who attended the town hall on Tuesday and said she had an opportunity to speak with Clinton. “I’m concerned about the emails. She said she thought the attention around it was “like a ploy to get her out of this election.”

Even with the controversy swirling in the background, she said she still supports Clinton. “It’s important that she stay in this election,” she said. “I told her to stay in there, and hang in there.”

The investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email is being run out of FBI headquarters — and that’s unusual
