Hillary Clinton had so much callous indifference to the security of the United States of America that she cavalierly sent and received emails that were so classified, so secret, that they cannot be released under ANY circumstance. And not even the FBI agents investigating this case and our nation’s elected representatives can see them in their full content. That’s how bad this mess has got.
Please understand: Hillary callously and cynically and in fact treasonously put U.S. national security and the lives of our covert agents at risk. That is a FACT:
Let’s examine a few significant updates on the Hillary email scandal, starting with perhaps the most important — but least covered — aspect of the imbroglio: Unconscionable national security risks. In order to shield her communications from oversight and public information requests, Hillary Clinton chose to set up a private email server in her home, rather than use a secure official account. Regardless of the ethical propriety and legality of that decision (stay tuned on those points), intelligence experts believe her actions led to extraordinary breaches at the hands of foreign governments and outside entities. Please read every word of this excerpt from Bloomberg’s Eli Lake and Josh Rogin:
Hillary Clinton didn’t take a basic precaution with her personal e-mail system to prevent hackers from impersonating or “spoofing” her identity in messages to close associates, according to former U.S. officials familiar with her e-mail system and other cyber-security experts. This vulnerability put anyone who was in communication with her clintonemail.com account while she was secretary of state at risk of being hacked. Clinton said at the United Nations last week that there were no security breaches of her personal e-mail server, which she used to send and receive more than 60,000 professional and personal e-mails. But former cyber-security officials and experts told us that there were gaps in the system…According to publicly available information, whoever administrated the system didn’t enable what’s called a Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, a simple setting that would prevent hackers sending e-mails that appear to be from clintonemail.com.
SPF is a basic and highly recommended security precaution for people who set up their own servers…Experts told us that oversight was just one flaw of a security system that would have been relatively easy for foreign intelligence services and others to exploit. “I have no doubt in my mind that this thing was penetrated by multiple foreign powers, to assume otherwise is to put blinders on,” said Bob Gourley, the chief technology officer at the Defense Intelligence Agency from 2005 to 2008 and the founder of Cognitio, a cybersecurity consultancy…Spoofing a senior official’s e-mail identity is also an easy way to conduct “spear phishing” attacks, where an attacker sends a personally crafted e-mail that appears to come from a trusted source. Once the target opens it, his own system can be compromised. Clinton said she e-mailed with dozens of State Department and White House officials using her server, including President Barack Obama.
Not only did Hillary’s overwhelming impulse for secrecy and contempt for accountability put her own emails at risk — bad enough, given her role as the country’s top diplomat — it also endangered the integrity of her contacts’ communications. This is unforgivable. Myopia, paranoia, arrogance and reckless incompetence, all rolled into one set of astounding revelations. By the way, just a few days ago, the State Department shut down large parts of its email system due to malware placed by Russian hackers who somehow burrowed into the network.
Hillary Clinton’s terribly incompetent, stupid and evil homebrewn server system was designed to “[take] extraordinary steps to prevent any record of her “deliberations, decisions, and actions.” She recklessly FAILED to install ANY security or encryption whatsoever for a significant period of time while her secret server operated out of a bathroom cabinet was vulnerable to determined enemy foreign governments. And so you have this:
- Bob Gourley, former chief technology officer at the Defense Intelligence Agency, states that “I have no doubt in my mind that this thing was penetrated by multiple foreign powers, to assume otherwise is to put blinders on.”
- Former Deputy CIA Director Michael Morell said that he believes some foreign intelligence agencies possess the contents of Hillary Clinton’s private email server.
“I think that foreign intelligence services, the good ones, have everything on any unclassified network that the government uses,” Morell said Friday in an interview on the Hugh Hewitt Show.
- Hillary Clinton’s mushrooming email scandal will not end well no matter what conclusions are reached, Gen. Michael Hayden, former director of the CIA and NSA, tells Newsmax TV.
“I would simply say that the sin in all of this is the original sin,” Hayden said Wednesday to J.D. Hayworth, host of “Newsmax Prime.”
“Frankly, there is no way to make this come out happy if you comingle your government and your private emails and then put all of them on a private server as opposed to a government server.
“You’re just setting in motion a whole series of things and it doesn’t require anyone to be stupid or malevolent. If you set it up that way, it’s going to end up in a bad place and that’s the bad place we’re in now.” […]
Does Hayden believe Clinton’s emails had a high probability of ending up in the hands of foreign intelligence services?
“I won’t give you a number, but a foreign intelligence service of some merit, if they were interested in those emails, I would give them a high probability of success that they would be able to penetrate that system,” he said.
- The unfolding national security scandal involving former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the leading Democratic candidate for president, is expected to produce evidence of foreign intelligence service involvement in the compromise of U.S. secrets placed on an unsecure email server.
That’s the conclusion of a senior State Department official who told me at least three foreign intelligence services – the Chinese, Russians and Israelis – almost certainly were able to hack into the private email server used by Clinton from 2009 to 2013.
Yeah, she put national security at risk. If she is elected, she will gladly sell the American people out to hostile foreign governments who intercepted her emails and would be in a position to destroy an American president by exposing her treason as they release the secrets that she stupidly shared with them.
You need to understand a few critical facts. Fact one is that Hillary Clinton did NOT merely have a private email account, as the mainstream media keeps dishonestly implying by referring to “emails” rather than “secret server.” No, she is a secretive, conniving fascist shrew who went to the incredible lengths of installing her own private SERVER so that she could have fascistic control over her emails and purge whatever was incriminating. You need to understand just how insane that is. Even President Obama himself had to say, “Hillary has a server in her house! I didn’t even know you could have one of those.” I mean, who in the hell does that? The only people who have private servers are drug cartel bosses who want to talk about their crimes without anyone being able to know what’s going on. Hillary’s determination to have her own private, secret server is an explicit statement as to her intent to put herself above the law and beyond transparency or accountability.
Anybody who tells you that Hillary Clinton didn’t do anything different from other previous Secretaries of State is a stone-cold, demon-possessed LIAR.
Hillary Clinton is the first corrupt technocrat EVER to NOT have ANY official government email whatsoever:

Hillary Clinton’s Personal Email Use Differed From Other Top Officials
by Perry Bacon Jr.
Hillary Clinton’s exclusive use of a non-government email account to send messages to her staff during her time as Secretary of State is a break from what other top officials have done, raising concerns from both Democrats and Republicans about the propriety of the practice.
Aides to former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and former President George W. Bush said neither official routinely sent e-mails to staffers while they held those posts. Rice “did not use her personal e-mail for official communication as Secretary” and instead exclusively used her State Department account, according to a top aide who did not want to be quoted publicly.
WASHINGTON (AP) — The computer server that transmitted and received Hillary Clinton’s emails — on a private account she used exclusively for official business when she was secretary of state — traced back to an Internet service registered to her family’s home in Chappaqua, New York, according to Internet records reviewed by The Associated Press.
The highly unusual practice of a Cabinet-level official physically running her own email would have given Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential candidate, impressive control over limiting access to her message archives. It also would distinguish Clinton’s secretive email practices as far more sophisticated than some politicians, including Mitt Romney and Sarah Palin, who were caught conducting official business using free email services operated by Microsoft Corp. and Yahoo Inc.
Most Internet users rely on professional outside companies, such as Google Inc. or their own employers, for the behind-the-scenes complexities of managing their email communications. Government employees generally use servers run by federal agencies where they work.
Hillary Clinton is the fascist control-freak par excellence. She is a Nazi hiding her crimes.
The second fact you need to understand is the fact that it is crystal clear that she tried very hard to wipe her server even AFTER it had been lawfully subpoenaed. She purged over THIRTY THOUSAND EMAILS from her secret server for the very simple reason that she is a criminal and criminals have to destroy the evidence of their crimes. And just ONE of the reasons she tried to do so was her utter contempt for national security if it in any way got in the way of her “convenience.” This woman along with her co-conspirator husband set up a Foundation that is every bit as slick as anything Slick Willy ever did. Hillary Clinton used her job as Secretary of State to sell her influence with foreign governments and foreign corporations paying her off with huge donations to her in the form of gigantic honorariums for her husband’s speeches or bribe money to their foundation.
Hillary Clinton treated the Secretary of State position like her own personal fiefdom to dishonestly prosper from. Period.
The third fact you need to understand is that Hillary Clinton – as I already underscored above – had a contempt for national security that reaches the level of treason.
It has been established that somebody on Hillary Clinton’s staff was deliberately removing the classification markers from Clinton’s emails, most likely for the sake of convenience and plausible deniability. Look at the previous reporting of the Los Angeles Times:
The Department of Justice said it is weighing whether to launch its own investigation after the inspector general for intelligence agencies notified the agency that classified information that went through the account appeared to have been mishandled. Administration officials and investigators declined to share details about the emails. But in a separate memo to lawmakers, the inspector general said that a review of just 40 of the 30,000 emails from the Clinton server found that four had information that should have been marked and handled as classified.
Clinton has made many assurances in recent months that she did not send or receive classified information on her personal server. Her campaign says the material in question had not been specifically marked as classified and, thus, Clinton broke no rules. The inspector general disputed that characterization in a statement late Friday, saying that the information in the emails was classified at the time, even if it wasn’t marked as such, and shouldn’t have been transmitted on a personal email system.
Even so, the revelation was an uncomfortable one for the candidate. And national security experts said the disclosure that that material that should have been marked classified made its way to Clinton’s personal email account at the very least fuels legitimate speculation about how the server was used.
“It tells us why this was such a bad idea,” said Stewart A. Baker, a former general counsel to the National Security Agency now in private practice. “It raises questions.”
Among them, Baker said, was whether staffers deliberately avoided marking sensitive emails to Clinton as classified so they could sidestep the bureaucrats who handle transmission of such material.
“She skipped the government circles and nobody was overseeing this and nobody was saying, ‘This info should not be on this system,’” Baker said. “If anything, there was an incentive for people to cross the line without making clear they were doing so.”
The money phrase is this: Hillary Clinton’s “staffers deliberately avoided marking sensitive emails to Clinton as classified so they could sidestep the bureaucrats who handle transmission of such material.”
She started out with what we now know to be a rampant lie: that she didn’t send of receive classified information.
She broke the law because she simply believed herself to be above and superior to it.
We’re bugs to Hillary Clinton.
And Hillary Clinton’s PERSONAL INVOLVEMENT IN ORDERING THIS CRIMINAL ACT is supported by direct evidence with Hillary Clinton caught red-handed demanding that classification markers be stripped and a classified document can be sent via unclassified channels. Hillary Clinton’s OWN WORDS on how to send a classified document:
In other words, Hillary Clinton is caught with the smoking gun in her gunpowder-residue-tainted hand, having ORDERED HER STAFF TO STRIP THE CLASSIFICATION MARKERS FROM CLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS AND SEND IT TO HER NONSECURE.
Now we know that there were THOUSANDS of emails sent and received that were classified but ILLEGALLY had their classification markers removed.
Which is to say that Hillary’s excuse – that there weren’t any classification markers – is itself merely one more indictment proving her criminality. Because there sure as hell WERE classification markers before she ordered them removed.
Hillary Clinton ought to be in prison. Right this moment, she should be trying to fabricate a shiv for herself as she schemes to stab her way to the position of top inmate.
We’ve got the now way, WAY past one thousand classified emails, some classified at such a high level it is beyond unreal treated with more indifference than a third grader writing a note on a piece of paper and then trying to toss it to another kid across a crowded classroom.
And pretty much every security expert says it would be more amazing that foreign governments DIDN’T read these emails than if they did. Which is another way of saying all of our enemies now know – thanks to Hillary Clinton – secrets that are so sensitive, so confidential, so vital to American national security that only a very few eyes on planet earth ought to ever be allowed to see them.
At the very least, Hillary Clinton displayed such self-centeredness and such piss-poor judgment that it is wildly beyond unreal. But nobody could be THAT incompetent. This soars beyond simple incompetence and enters the realm of a level of hatred and contempt that is frankly stunning.
Democrats are truly evil, depraved people who despise the United States of America. That is now beyond obvious as they rally their wagons behind a traitor to the United States.
