Hillary Clinton Crimes

Numerous Hillary Clinton Crimes

(Please visit the referenced websites for latest updates)



WND website:

WASHINGTON – The Hillary Clinton Investigative Justice Project has reached its first threshold, having raised sufficient funds to continue its investigative series into the presidential candidate for illegal activities and to prepare a series of hard-hitting reports for WND that will lead to criminal charges being filed against her at the state level, if the Justice Department fails to indict her.
The investigative research began with a series of more than 20 articles written by WND senior staff writer Jerome Corsi beginning in April 2015 portraying the Clinton Family Foundation as a vast, criminal enterprise, designed to enrich the Clintons personally as well as their close friends.
“In the coming weeks and months, WND plans to present undeniable and irrefutable evidence of actual crimes, gross Internal Revenue Service violations, as well as national security breaches by Hillary Clinton currently under investigation by the FBI,” said Joseph Farah, editor of WND. “Though Barack Obama’s U.S. Justice Department appears unwilling to indict her for these crimes, we believe there is a strong likelihood that one or more state attorney generals will do so if provided with the evidence. That’s what the Hillary Project is all about.”
The goal, he says, is “prosecution, not the presidency.”
Future reports will expose:
  • Major discrepancies in how the Clintons report about their money – how they got the money, how much they have, and what happened to the amount they admit accumulating.
  • Over $1 billion raised by the Clinton Foundation and by the America India Foundation, of which Bill Clinton is the honorary chairman for the victims of the earthquake that hit Gujarat, India, with no clear accounting of how the money raised for this “charitable purpose” was spent.
  • The Clintons’ free use of private jets and the issuance to Bill Clinton of 100,000 shares of corporate stock under the table in a swindle involving an entrepreneur from India, ultimately fined millions of dollars in a Securities and Exchange Commission investigation.
  • A scheme in which the Clintons made millions creating the Clinton Global Initiative as a get-rich public relations event designed to imitate the lavish World Economic Forum held annually in Davos, Switzerland – in a scheme devised by former Clinton “body man” at the White House, Doug Band, that funneled donors to the Clinton Foundation to Teneo, a private consulting firm created by Band, where the donors were charged millions of dollars in consulting fees and Bill Clinton was paid as an advisor.
  • A massive fraud in which the Clintons have diverted from the Clinton Foundation tens of millions of dollars contributed by UNITAID through the United Nations World Health Organization away from the original purpose of buying HIV/AIDS generic medications for Third World indigent patients.
  • Accounting frauds that permitted the Clinton Foundation to hide from public scrutiny millions of dollars that Canadian mining executive Frank Giustra funneled through a “pass through” entity identified as the Clinton Giustra Sustainable Growth Initiative that was never separately incorporated or properly audited, in blatant defiance of state and federal laws of charitable giving.
  • Evidence that Hillary Clinton, while at the State Department, openly transacted Clinton Foundation business, in open violation of a Memorandum of Understanding the Clinton team negotiated with the Obama transition team as a precondition of Hillary Clinton being nominated secretary of state.
  • Bill and Hillary Clinton diverted millions of dollars from State Department aid to the victims of the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, to invest in a luxury Marriott hotel that benefited private investors, including Clinton Foundation donors while the Haitian earthquake victims were forced to live in shanty-towns without adequate water or sanitation facilities.
The campaign was conceived by Farah and Corsi, two veteran investigative journalists, who plan to take their findings to state attorneys general in jurisdictions in which the nonprofit, tax-exempt Clinton Family Foundation does business.

“The Clinton Family Foundation is effectively a criminal, money-laundering operation principally established to enrich the founders with political payoff money, including millions from foreign donors,” said Farah. “It’s a racketeering enterprise protected by the Democratic Party dons – including the president of the United States and his attorney general. This project is designed to take her out of contention for the presidency before Election Day.”
Farah added: “The campaign is on fire. I haven’t seen such enthusiasm since the campaign to dump John Boehner earlier this year. That campaign proved successful. I think this one will, too.”


To me, and I hope the nation and the world, this shows again why she is not fit to be president. If she has a place to fill, the more fitting venue would be a prison cell, lest we not remember who she really is.

Proof Hillary isn't fit to be president
By Larry Klayman

No one understands better than yours truly – except perhaps Vince Foster and scores of others (including material witnesses) who mysteriously died in and around the Clinton administration during the 1990s – the treachery of Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Indeed, I fought her and her husband tooth and nail during these years and am the only lawyer ever to have obtained a court ruling that a sitting president committed a crime – a finding made by now Chief Judge Royce Lamberth in the famous Filegate case, which involved Bill and Hillary Clinton illegally obtaining FBI files on perceived adversaries to intimidate witnesses and blunt the 40-plus scandals that the Clintons found themselves engulfed in during those years.

My efforts to hold the Clintons to the rule of law infuriated them so much that President Clinton, at one point during his impeachment, lost his composure and control. After I also challenged the Clintons' illegal mortgage and purchase of a home in Chappaqua, N.Y., they attacked me personally at a White House press conference. (See the video on the homepage of Freedomwatchusa.org.) Many wondered at the time how I was able to survive the Clintons' wrath.

It became well-known during the Clinton years that while the president was a "certified" sleaze ball, the most evil partner of this Bonnie-and-Clyde duo was Hillary. She came to be seen as the "consigliore" of the couple, the one who had executed (pun intended) their dastardly plans and deeds. In this regard, although the moribund Republican establishment is conveniently willing to forget and forgive (since, after all, the Clintons are part of their elitist club in Washington, D.C.) – Republicans having failed miserably to convict Bill Clinton for high crimes and misdemeanors during the impeachment proceedings during the late 1990s – it's important to remind the nation and the world about who Hillary really is, particularly since she obviously is leaving her post in the Obama administration as secretary of state to likely prepare for a run at the presidency in 2016.

Here is just a partial list of "Her Evilness'" crimes that came to light during the Clinton administration years:

1) Whitewater scandal – This was the fraudulent land scheme, masterminded by Hillary and key witness Jim McDougal (who also mysteriously died in prison), while Hillary was a partner of the Rose Law Firm – also the firm of Vince Foster and Webster Hubbell, who later moved to D.C. with the Clintons to infest the White House Counsel's office with their "legal expertise." Hubbell was later indicted, tried and convicted for tax fraud. Foster turned up dead in Fort Marcy Park, as he was a material witness for then independent counsel Ken Starr's Whitewater criminal investigation.

2) Travelgate – To feather the nest of her friends, Harry and Susan Thomases, both Hollywood "beautiful people," Hillary had the head of the White House Travel Office, Billy Dale, fired on trumped-up claims of tax irregularities and then put the Thomases in charge to personally reap the profits of this government travel business. Dale, who was my client, was ultimately cleared, but not after his life was virtually ruined.

3) Filegate – This patented Hillary scandal was first detected by the House Government Reform and Oversight Committee, which had been investigating the Clintons' Travelgate caper. What was learned is that more than 900 FBI files had been ordered up by a former bar bouncer, Craig Livingstone, whom Hillary had hired to work in the White House Counsel's Office, on the first lady's orders and without proper legal justification. I later filed a class-action suit against the Clintons and other accomplices. The case went on for almost a decade and resulted in the uncovering of yet another Clinton scandal, E-mailgate – where the Clintons had covered up and suppressed more than a million potentially incriminating emails that should have been produced to me, Ken Starr and Congress over a variety of the duo's crimes. It was also during this Filegate case that it was learned that President Clinton, on the advice of his top political adviser, James Carville, had illegally released Privacy Act protected information from White House files to smear Kathleen Willey, a woman who was a material witness in the impeachment proceedings, as she was also sexually harassed by the "philanderer in chief" while working for him in the White House. This was the basis of Judge Lamberth's ruling that President Clinton had committed a crime.

4) Chinagate – Not to be outdone by her prior scandals, Hillary then masterminded a scheme whereby the Clinton-Gore presidential campaign of 1996 took bribes from communist Chinese banks and their government to bankroll the president's and the Democratic Party's re-election efforts when it appeared, due to their low standing in the polls, that all the stops needed to be pulled out. It was the lawsuit that I brought against Secretary of Commerce Ron Brown, where at Hillary's instruction, he literally sold seats on Department trade missions to China and elsewhere, which principally uncovered this. In late 1996 and early 1997, the scandal had burgeoned to such a level that joint congressional hearings were empaneled, ultimately to be shut down when Democrats uncovered illegal fundraising by some Republicans. The two parties, faced with mutual assured destruction, simply took an exit stage left. However, I soldiered on with my lawsuit. And, while I uncovered a lot about Bonnie and Clyde and their Chinese "friends," this scandal ultimately took back seat to the Monica Lewinsky scandal, since the media preferred sex to foreign espionage and graft. Hillary and Bill were ironically saved by Monica, who became the lightening rod drawing attention away to what at the time was perhaps the biggest scandal – Chinagate – in American history.

This week, during the congressional hearings concerning the terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Libya, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton finally testified about her role in the breakdown of security at the consulate, which resulted in the deaths of our ambassador and three others. At several points during even the mild questioning about why she had not as secretary of state taken steps to beef up security despite warnings before the terrorist attack, Hillary lost control and bore her vicious fangs.

Hillary is a unique case among candidates, in that she (and Bill of course) were investigated more closely -- by well-funded government prosecutors with subpoena power -- than any politician in earth's history. She's clearly not as bad as the biggest Hillary-haters think -- hell, I'm not sure Charles Manson is as bad as they think Hillary is. Whatever your politics are, forget about her having 80 mysteriously dead friends, or faking Vincent Foster's suicide. Didn't happen. And I've yet to see a shred of evidence that she's a lesbian, though I'm not sure why her haters think that's such a damning allegation. She did marry an infamously sexy man, after all.

Of course, we expect more from presidential candidates than not murdering people. And she has some significant and troubling scandals that get overlooked with all the foo-farah over crazy conspiracy theories. If you've got a scandal that's missing here, please clue me in. But remember, NewsMax, blogs, and Matt Drudge are not reputable sources. I need some real evidence backing it up. Click on the allegation of your choice:

Conspiracy Theories



"Bill is a hard dog to keep on the porch." (Hillary)

"I can tell you with 100% certainty that Norman Hsu is NOT involved in a ponzi scheme. He is COMPLETELY legit." - Samantha Wolf, Hillary's former West Coast Finance Director, June 2007

"I don't have time to stay home and bake cookies." (Hillary)

"I'm not some little woman, standing by my man, like Tammy Wynette." (Hillary, on 60 Minutes). (She later apologized to Wynette, who then campaigned for Bill.)

(to a group of children) "Would you tell your parents something for me? Ask them, if they have a gun in their house, please lock it or take it out of their house. Will you do that as good citizens?"

A Criminal Hill-Raiser

Hillary calls her big donors -- the ones who not only donate the maximum, but "bundle" (corral) max donations from dozens of friends, like Bush's Rangers -- her Hill-Raisers. At least one of them is a flat-out criminal.

Norman Hsu was one of Hillary's biggest fundraisers -- raising over $850,000 for her -- right up to the day he surrendered to California State Superior Court on a Grand Theft conviction; he had been a fugitive from justice for 15 years, since he failed to appear for sentencing after pleading no contest. His crime was raising over a million dollars from investors for a business scheme that didn't exist. (Hsu also gave $18,000 to Barack Obama, and $37,000 to Bill Richardson.) After Mr. Hsu's colorful background became public, Clinton's campaign donated his direct contributions -- and later those of the people he bundled -- to charity.)

He has an interesting, if murky background. Hsu graduated from top-notch schools (Berkeley and Wharton Business School), and friends describe him as having a magnetic personality -- friendly, social, and impressive. Hsu tells people he makes his money in New York's garment industry, but key players interviewed there by the Wall Street Journal have never heard of him.

In 1990, police in a San Francisco suburb stopped a speeding Toyota at 3am one night. Inside were Chinatown gang leaders including Raymond "Shrimp Boy" Chow, who said Hsu owed him money, and Norman Hsu himself, who told police he was being kidnapped. (This is not something that happens to random nice people in San Francisco.) The gang leaders were arrested. After he fled his sentencing, Hsu apparently lived in Hong Kong until 1998 -- when he went through a series of bankruptcies there -- before quietly returning to the United States.

He is under investigation for possibly donating illegally high amounts of money to Clinton and others using straw men. For example, his ex-wife, his son (a student), and an entire family, led by a mailman, have all given the federal maximum amount of money -- $4,600 -- to Clinton's campaign, often at nearly the exact time that Hsu gave similar amounts himself.

You have to give Hsu this much -- he's consistent. When his criminal background was made public by the Los Angeles Times, Hsu turned himself in to authorities, posted $2 million bail -- and then skipped town without turning in his passport as required. In the meantime, he Fedexed "suicide notes" to several prominent people he knew. 2 days later he was arrested by the FBI at a hospital in Grand Junction, Colorado. He had flown by charter airplane into Oakland, promising to surrender to a Bay area court, but ducked out and hopped on an Amtrak train heading east to Chicago.

The passengers in the sleeper across the hallway noticed a hat, a book and other items spilling into the hall from under Hsu's door. He didn't answer a knock, but passenger Joanne Segale looked in and saw him bare-chested, in a fetal position wedged against the door. Conductors pried open the door of his cabin with a crowbar and found him wedged into a tight space between his sliding door and his fold-out bed -- the kind of place that someone might try to hide. He was delirious and couldn't answer questions, but at one point asked if he was in jail. Segale, helping him to the bathroom, saw “lots and lots of medication in that room. I could see pills on the floor and rolling around.”

In retrospect, Mr. Hsu may have given an advance hint of his plan to run when his lawyer announced that his $2 million bail "can also be used for restitution to any persons who might still be unpaid" -- as if he were a diner rushing out of a restaurant and dropping some $20 bills on the table to cover the tab. It seems bizarre to post $2 million bail you know you are going to lose, when half of that would pay off everyone you cheated -- unless your $2 million came from shady sources that will soon become known once people investigate you.

At first, it wasn't clear where Hsu got all his money, leading to lots of conspiracy theories. Since his 1998 return to the U.S., Hsu has invested in several apparel businesses that -- all put together -- gross about $2 million per year, according to Dun and Bradstreet. And he has invested in a several Bay Area properties. That's not a bad source of money, but hardly enough to generate the $1.2 million Hsu has been estimated to have donated to various political campaigns, much less his fancy clothes, charter airplane, top Manhattan clubs booked for splashy parties, etc.

No one's sure, but it seems likely that Hsu is simply a garden variety Ponzi-scheme con man. Like many, he found that creating an aura of wealth and success is the fastest way to get new investors to hand over money. And apparently he found that giving campaign donations can get you pictures and parties with famous people cheaper than almost any other method.

One single investor -- Joel Rosenman, one of the entrepreneurs behind the Woodstock Music Festival -- was so taken with Norman Hsu's investments that he created a $40 million investment fund entirely given to 37 bridge loan deals with Norman Hsu, who allegedly was going to manufacture clothes for Gucci, Prada and other designer labels in China and resell them to those labels at a profit. Hsu gained Rosenman's trust by returning 40% on a couple of small, initial investments by Rosenman and his business partner, Ms. Yau Cheng. (She introduced Hsu to Rosenman in 2002.) This is the exact same kind of deal Hsu was convicted for in 1991. Already, checks that Hsu sent to the investment fund have bounced for insufficient funds.

At least one investor warned the Clinton campaign last summer that Hsu might be running a Ponzi scheme, but in their furious rush to raise money, they ignored the caution. On June 18, 2007, an Irvine, CA businessman named Jack Cassidy heard from a friend who invested with Hsu, and emailed a Democratic Party official to warn them. " There is a significant probability that a man using the name of Norman Hsu is running a Ponzi scheme," Irvine wrote. "The math does not work!!"

Samantha Wolf, who was Hillary's West Coast Finance Director, wrote the official saying "I can tell you with 100% certainty that Norman Hsu is NOT involved in a ponzi scheme. He is COMPLETELY legit." She no longer works for the Clinton campaign.

Phony Commodity Options Profit

In 1978, with no prior experience, Hillary Clinton started trading high risk commodities futures under the guidance of James Blair, a friend. Blair was also an experienced trader who was outside counsel to massive Arkansas chicken processor Tyson Foods (which had business before Bill Clinton, then the governor of Arkansas.) Hillary did very well, improbably well, even given the fact that a major bull market was going on. One possibility, hinted at by trading records from the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, is that Blair traded for her and manipulated results to put money in Hillary's pocket. For example, a trader might make a large number of trades in a single day, for themself and for clients. Some of them will do well and some will fail. Instead of allocated the trades between various clients as originally intended, a trader like Blair could reassign all of the successful trades to one client (such as Clinton) and assign the losers to himself, or another client. That way, he would effectively pay her the money without worry about laws against payoffs.

Whitewater and the Missing Billing Records

Whitewater was a real estate development in Arkansas that Bill and Hillary lost money in when it went south. Their partners, Jim and Susan McDougal, also owned a savings and loan association (Madison Guaranty) that hired Hillary and her firm, the Rose Law Firm. When the S&L failed, costing taxpayers over $65 million, the Whitewater vacation development collapsed.

The 3 Whitewater special prosecutors, after 6 years and $40 million worth of investigation, concluded that "This office has determined that the evidence was insufficient to prove to a jury beyond a reasonable doubt that either President or Mrs. Clinton knowingly participated in any criminal conduct ... or knew of such conduct." Hardly a ringing declaration of innocence. Hillary stated 99 times under oath in 1996 that she did not recall what work she did for Madison Guarantee. Kenneth Starr, the second special prosecutor had subpoenaed her billing records from Madison, and she reported that she couldn't find them. Two years later, the records turned up in the White House family residence under circumstances that Hillary has never been able to explain. The records showed that she met 15 times with Arkansas businessman Seth Ward concerning Whitewater, but she and Ward denied rememberin any of that.

At the very best, her actions strongly suggest she was covering something up. At worst, she may have lied under oath and obstructed justice by hiding the billing records. The irony is that this whole episode is amazingly small potatoes. The total money involved from all parties was under $500,000, and the Clinton's lost all but $1,000 of their money.

Pardons and the Riches

At the very end of his presidential term, Bill Clinton pardoned a number of people, including financier and convicted tax evader Marc Rich. It's on Hillary's scandal page because a few months earlier, Rich's former wife Denise gave substantial donations to Hillary's senatorial campaign and the Clinton library. While any wife or husband of a politician should be free to run for office, running while the spouse is still in power creates an immediate conflict of interest, and Bill had no trouble repaying the favor to his wife's contributor.

The interesting part of this story is who else was urging Clinton to pardon Marc Rich. The request was delivered to Hillary personally by none other than Scooter Libby, who was Rich's lawyer and has since been convicted of perjury in the Bush administration's leaking of the identity of arms control spy Valerie Plame. And Rich's application was supported by Israel's then-Prime Minister Ehud Barak. The final twist is that Rich was a suspected middleman in smuggling of Iraqi oil despite the trade embargo. His pardon required him to pay a $100 MILLION FINE before he could return to the U.S. That should give conspiracy folks something to chew on.

Clinton also pardoned Almon Glenn Braswell for mail fraud and perjury convictions. Braswell and Carlos Vignali paid approximately $200,000 each to Hillary's brother, Hugh Rodham, to pitch their clemency casese. Rodham returned the payments after they became public knowledge.

$100,000 payment from an Educational Foundation

This is an obscure story we've been following since it came out in 1996, and little has been made public. On January 10th of that year, New York state's then Attorney General Dennis Vacco (a Republican) announced he was investigating $100,000 in payments to Hillary or the Rose Law Firm from the National Center on Education and the Economy, a charity that was in Rochester New York and has since moved to Washington, D.C. The organization is a prime advocate of standards-based education, which has been promoted by both the Clinton and Bush II administrations (in the No Child Left Behind act.)

Hillary was on their board, as were Mario Cuomo and Ira Magaziner (two other prominent Democrats), but no other board members were paid. No one has ever been able to find any details or justification for what Hillary did for that money, other than produce a single 12 page report. When this story came out, Vacco announced he was asking for contracts with Hillary or the Rose Law Firm and a description of any work she actually did. Nothing more has come of it, which -- given how thoroughly Bill and Hillary were investigated - indicates that nothing substantial has turned up, either way.

Tinfoil Hat Conspiracy Theories

Bill and Hillary are the biggest magnet for conspiracy theories since, well, the Warren Commission. The interesting twist is that several of these conspiracy ideas -- such as the idea that Bill and/or Hillary actually had White House Counsel Vince Foster killed, despite the coroner's ruling that he committed suicide, were fully investigated by well funded, official government commissions with subpoena power and aggressive, Republican leadership.

The fact that these investigations found nothing to the conspiracies does not stop the conspiracy theories, of course. The 900 page reports just give plenty of details for obsessives to mull over and find intriguing tidbits. Other great conspiracies include: List of Dead Friends of Bill (which will no doubt reappear soon as the list of dead friends of Hillary), Mena Arkansas CIA/smuggling ties, and stories about Hillary being a lesbian, which could actually be kind of hot depending on who she is said to have slept with. Xena/Hillary rough sex? Never mind.

Or take Norman Hsu. Lots of conspiracists on the right are convinced he was a Chinese spy trying to control Hillary with donations. And yes, Bill Clinton got illegal contributions from a Chinese guy (John Huang) who admitted that some of his money came from Chinese military sources. But that doesn't mean every crook with an Asian name is a Chinese spy. The far simpler explanation -- that he's a con man -- just isn't fun enough for these conspiracists. Never mind that Hsu has plead guilty to running one con, that political donations make perfect sense as a relatively cheap way to establish a phony legitimacy by appearing at parties and in photos with well-known public figures, and that at least one (very White and American) investor has admitted giving Hsu $40 million.

The bottom line is, play in these murk pits if you like but don't expect to get anywhere. The classic mark of a conspiracy theorist is that instead of giving you facts and statements, they ask questions. "Did you know that Vince Foster blah blah blah?" "If it WAS suicide, why did blah blah blah?" As soon as you hear arguments like that, about any candidate, realize you've left the realm of knowledge and entered the world of mystery.

As with any conspiracy theory or urban legend, a great place to get a good blast of common sense is the their investigation of the Dead Clinton Friends list, with dates, facts and hotlinks. The report is fair and admits when a death might be questionable.


Hillary Clinton should face criminal charges

 By Joseph Curl - - Sunday, March 15, 2015


Let’s get down to brass tacks: Hillary Rodham Clinton should be criminally charged for failing to turn over her government emails as mandated by law.

It’s not a hard call. While she nominated to be Secretary of State by President Obama, and confirmed by the U.S. Senate, she’s just like any other government employee — there were documents she was required by law to sign over upon her departure.

SEE ALSO: White House dismisses Hillary-Jarrett story as untrue, nonsense

When she stepped down from her post — in the midst of the Benghazi scandal — she would have been required to sign the State Department’s “Separation Statement,” AKA Form 109.

“I have surrendered to responsible officials all classified or administratively controlled documents and material with which I was charged or which I had in my possession, and I am not retaining in my possession, custody, or control, documents,” the form says.

And “I have surrendered to responsible officials all unclassified documents and papers relating to the official business of the Government acquired by me while in the employ of the Department or USIA.”

SEE ALSO: Adam Schiff: GOP using Benghazi probe to cast bad light on Hillary Clinton

Here’s the nut graf: “I have been advised by the interviewing officer whose signature appears below and fully understand that Section 1001 of Title 18, United States Code, provides criminal penalties for knowingly and willfully falsifying or concealing material fact in a statement or document submitted to any department or agency of the United States Government concerning a matter under its jurisdiction.”

That’s exactly what Mrs. Clinton did: She “knowingly and willfully” concealed documents from the State Department, namely thousands and thousands of emails she had sent and received on a nongovernment email address — which she ran via a private server in her own home.

Her last day as Secretary of State was Feb. 1, 2013. Yet last week she held a press conference to say that she had just recently turned over some 55,000 documents. Thus, it’s cut and dried that she violated the law. She left the State Department without turning over documents as required by law, which makes her in violation of the law and subject to criminal charges.

Many people have been prosecuted under this statue, most notably I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby and TV star Martha Stewart. Mr. Libby, who was chief of staff to then-Vice President Dick Cheney, who was charged under Section 1001 with two counts of making false statements.

Now, no one yet knows if she actually signed the form upon departure. Reporters aren’t asking, the State Department’s not saying. But there’s no question that the government is a stickler for forms and proper procedure, so it’s highly likely that she did.

But there’s more than just the legal form. The House Select Committee on Benghazi has demanded Mrs. Clinton’s email regarding the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attack that left four Americans dead. Rep. Darrell Issa, who has led the probe, said last week “it will be a crime if she knowingly withheld pursuant to the subpoena.”

And even though Mrs. Clinton has cooperated on the emails, Mr. Issa commented that her “voluntary cooperation does not guarantee that it’s not a crime to deliver all” of the documents.

“If you use a non-government e-mail, you forward it to your official account or you print it out and that preserves them,” Mr. Issa said. “She left office with her documents.”

He added that three subpoenas were issued while he chaired the House Oversight Committee, but there were documents that were “never produced.”

What’s more, journalist and watchdog groups have sought documents under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). But because the State Department was searching only its own database for compliant documents — not Mrs. Clinton’s private server in her home — many documents were never handed over.

“Countless Freedom of Information Act requests would have gotten those documents had they been in the public domain,” Mr. Issa said. “We may never get many of them, because we don’t know what we don’t know when it’s on a server where the click of a button can delete records forever.”

Mrs. Clinton says she deleted nearly 32,000 emails that she and her lawyers deemed private.

Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, has tried for years to get documents.

“We had hundreds of requests. The State Department knew from the beginning these records weren’t being searched, and no one told us about it, no one told the courts about it,” Mr. Fitton said.

The Associated Press has filed a lawsuit to get to Hillary’s emails, so the matter will one day go before a judge. And Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., who was held in contempt of Congress but refused to turn over documents anyway, will be replaced soon, perhaps by someone who might adhere to the law.

But either way, voters will get to weigh in far sooner than the law does. They’ll get a say on whether they trust the disgraced secretary of state in just nine months. My guess is the result won’t be pretty.

Bill Whittle: The Criminal Arrogance of Hillary Clinton 3/15/2015
Bill Whittle: Ref:


30,000 deleted emails... Bill Whittle looks at the lawlessness, the arrogance, and the unmasked contempt that Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama have for the American people.


Hi everybody. I’m Bill Whittle and this is the Firewall.

The American experiment was many things, but first and foremost it was an attempt, for the first time in human history, to create a society based upon the rule of law. The Declaration of Independence lists, in exhaustive and minute detail, nearly thirty enumerated cases of lawlessness on the part of King George III. This nation showed the world that common people could not only rule themselves; they could do so without an aristocracy and especially do so without an aristocracy that was, like King George, above the law.

Here’s a law: U.S. Code, Title 18, Part I, Chapter 101, Section 2071, Paragraph a: “Whoever willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, or destroys, or attempts to do so, or, with intent to do so takes and carries away any record, proceeding, map, book, paper, document, or other thing, filed or deposited with any clerk or officer of any court of the United States, or in any public office, or with any judicial or public officer of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.”

Paragraph b: Whoever, having the custody of any such record, proceeding, map, book, document, paper, or other thing, willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, falsifies, or destroys the same, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both; and shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States.

Hillary Rodham Clinton decided to conduct, for four years, the office of Secretary of State using her own private email server. Because these emails were not transacted and recorded through the official State Department servers, Mrs. Clinton “willfully concealed and removed” these critical documents from the records and archives of the United States Government. You can further argue that by electing to not have these records placed onto government servers – which are secure, routinely backed up, and most importantly subject to Freedom Of Information Act requests, that she has, by any reasonable interpretation, “mutilated, obliterated and destroyed” these essential records, which belong not to Hillary Rodham Clinton but rather to the Secretary of State of the United States of America, and her employers, the people of that nation.

The penalty for this is a fine or up to three years imprisonment, or both. That’s paragraph (a) of the law.

By her own admission, transacting ALL of her State Department business through her private server means that by not turning the entire server over to the State Department – all of it, that’s for us to decide what is important or incriminating, not her – she has in fact “willfully and unlawfully concealed, removed, mutilated, obliterated, falsified, or destroyed the same.”

That too is punishable by fine, up to three years imprisonment, or both… and, parenthetically, forfeiture of office and disqualification from holding any office under the United States.

That’s the law. That’s what the law says.

The lawlessness is endemic in this administration. But beyond the lawlessness is, of course, the contempt. The contempt for the very idea that these Harvard and Yale Law School grads have to actually, you know, obey the law. The contempt for the American people’s right to know what their elected officials are doing. And beyond all of this, the towering, monumental, criminal arrogance of it: that the official business of the United States of America; the nation’s diplomacy, strategy, defense posture, privileged communications between our allies and in point of fact every particle of our nation’s foreign policy was being discussed and archived in a single box in either Texas or Manhattan or wherever the hell it is; that this server’s basic, routine, Microsoft security updates – the kind you and I get pestered with every day -- were not complied with; that the vital security interests or in fact the very lives of 320 million people did not warrant the effort to even obtain a unique encryption certificate but rather used the same one issued to thousands if not millions of users; all of this gets to the heart not only of who Hillary Clinton is and the contempt in which she holds the American people. It is deeper than that.

When the President of the United States gets an official notification from his Secretary of State from BestMattressDeals99@yahoo.com, or any email that does not end in dot gov, then he too is complicit in this lawlessness, and for the same reason.

Barack Obama’s Press Secretary, Josh Earnest, admits that the President did receive emails from his Secretary of State, and went on to say this:

Feel better now? The President of the United States, receiving emails from an illegal source, did not know or care or take any action whatsoever to ensure that she complied with the federal law she was in violation of. And neither did any of the people we pay to be responsible for the security of the communications of those at the uppermost level of the most powerful nation in the world.

This country was founded to be rid of the incompetence, reckless arrogance and casual stupidity of Kings and Queens who acted as though they were above the law. If we let these crimes go unpunished it will die of that same parasitical disease.
