The government watchdog group Judicial Watch has released a group of previously undisclosed Hillary Clinton emails from her time as Secretary of State.
The new emails reveal that Clinton aide Huma Abedin sent top secret information over unsecured networks and that Clinton Foundation donors received “special treatment” from the US State Department.
According to Judicial Watch’s website, 1,606 document pages were released Wednesday, “containing emails from the unsecure, non-government account of Huma Abedin, Clinton’s then-deputy chief of staff, also show Clinton or her staff expressing interest in visiting Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez and North Korean dictator Kim Jung II.”
Judicial Watch reveals:
The documents were obtained in response to a court order from a May 5, 2015, lawsuit filed against the State Department (Judicial Watch, Inc. v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:15-cv-00684)) after it failed to respond to a March 18, 2015, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request seeking: “All emails of official State Department business received or sent by former Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin from January 1, 2009 through February 1, 2013 using a non-‘state.gov’ email address.”
Several emails contain classified information.
On March 12, 2009, Sid Blumenthal, former aide to Bill Clinton and confidant of Hillary Clinton, sent Mrs. Clinton a memo about Northern Ireland that was classified CONFIDENTIAL and the details were withheld from release under FOIA Exemption B1.4(D) (dealing with foreign relations or foreign activities).
On February 27, 2009, Ambassador Melanne Verveer sent Clinton a briefing memo/email on discussions she held with Congolese officials, which was classified as CONFIDENTIAL and withheld under FOIA exemption B1.4(D).
On January 22, 2010, Deputy Chief of Staff Jake Sullivan sent an email about a call to Chinese Foreign Minister Yang to several State Department officials. It contained information classified as CONFIDENTIAL by State and exempted under FOIA Exemption B1.4(D). It was forwarded to Abedin’s unsecure email account. The email had an attached memorandum of the Clinton-Yang call. State Department official Courtney Beale subsequently tells Assistant Secretary Todd Stern that she had sent that memo previously to him on the “high side” [i.e., via secure email channels].
On August 20, 2010, State Department official Laura Lucas sent to Abedin’s unclassified email account a call sheet for Clinton with Spanish Foreign Minister Miguel Moratinos, which contained classified CONFIDENTIAL information that was withheld based on B1.4(D).
There’s still more proof of illegal activity that shouldn’t be laughed off by even the most devout supporters of Hillary Clinton. If you weren’t convinced before, these documents prove once and for all Hillary’s criminal activity while serving as Secretary of State.
Fox News reports:
Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton says newly-released emails show Huma Abedin sending classified information over unsecured networks and Clinton Foundation donors potentially receiving special treatment from the State Department.
Fitton said Abedin was regularly receiving the emails – including from the then-secretary of state – over Hillary Clinton’s illicit private server.
[…] Fitton said if this conduct involved an average person, he or she would have been subject to prosecution for handling classified information in this manner.
“Losing an election ought not to be a get-out-of-jail-free card,” Fitton told Tucker Carlson.
On “Fox & Friends,” Judge Andrew Napolitano agreed that “justice should be done” based on the law and the evidence.
Remember that the statute of limitations on Hillary has not yet run out. The Justice Department could very well build a case if they so choose.
What’s more is that the documents also contain information that suggest, as Fox News’ senior judicial analyst said, “a pattern of Clinton Foundation donors receiving favors from the State Department.”
That had never been investigated by the FBI.
Anyone with the guts to treat real evidence with the seriousness it deserves would recognize this as a crime, and just being Hillary Clinton doesn’t change that.
