The recently released FBI report, which provided more details on Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server and email malpractice, looks more and more as if it will ultimately spell trouble for the Democratic presidential nominee.
In still yet another apparent attempt to avoid media coverage, a document dump took place on the Friday evening that preceded the long Labor Day weekend. Mixed in with the report’s scandalous jigsaw puzzle pieces was a document detailing the agency’s July interview with the former secretary of state.
Revelations that flowed from the report and document, though, differ from the multitude of other sordid leaks relating to Hillary’s private server, which have often fallen short of the resonating mark. In contrast, these news nuggets pose a greater danger to Hillary’s presidential prospects precisely because they are so easily understood by the public at large.
In the approximate three hours of questions and answers with FBI investigators, Hillary said she could not recall about forty times. Folks can smell it when there’s something fishy.
For Hillary, the odor just keeps getting stronger.
Back in March of 2015, she said that the reason she used a private server for her emailing was to simplify things by having to use only one digital device. Then the FBI let it be known that 13 other mobile devices and five iPads had potentially sent and/or received classified information.
Although Hillary’s lawyers turned two Blackberries and three of the iPads over to the FBI, Hillary was somehow “unable to locate” any of the other devices, which left FBI investigators minus the ability to determine whether the “lost” devices were ever hacked.
During a press conference back in March of 2015, Hillary said, “I’m certainly well aware of the classification requirements and did not send classified material.”
Oops once again, the interview summary indicates that Hillary told the FBI she “did not know” that the “(C)” markings on classified material meant that the material was actually classified. One of the nation’s supposed best and brightest took a cue from a primary grade class and “speculated it was referencing paragraphs marked in alphabetical order.”
In March of 2016, Hillary said, “I provided all of my emails that could possibly be work related.”
Her lips are moving. Prior to the recent document dump, folks had already been told that the FBI had found an additional 15,000 work-related emails on Hillary’s private server, which she had failed to turn over to the State Department when she left in 2013.
In the new documentation, it turns out the FBI found another 17,448 emails that are described as work-related and personal emails, which Hillary failed to turn over.
Despite President Obama having banished Hillary’s political advisor, Sidney Blumenthal, from any governmental role in his administration, Hillary carried on secret digital correspondence with Blumenthal, who ended up sending 179 memos to Clinton, some of which she forwarded after deleting his name.
The story doesn’t end there. It turns out that Blumenthal was compensated by the Clinton Foundation for work he ostensibly performed for the non-profit organization.
More fishy stuff, this time the digital kind. The latest FBI report lays out facts about how Hillary’s e-mail accounts were targets of a slew of spear phishing attempts. At least one of the attempts was successful, meaning she was hacked.
An email sent to her was meant to give the impression that it was from a State official. According to the FBI, the message “contained a potentially malicious link.” Hillary’s reply to the suspicious email was as follows: “Is this really from you? I was worried about opening it!”
Hillary’s aide, Huma Abedin, estranged wife of Anthony Weiner of salacious Internet voguing fame, sent an email to a colleague recounting that someone was “hacking into her [Hillary’s] email” because the e-mail . . . contained a link to a “website with pornographic material.”
Most folks are wise to the fact that in order to know what the content of a website is, Hillary must have clicked on the link, thereby falling prey to the spear phishing attack.
Most folks also know the difference between one smart phone and thirteen of them and will pull the right lever in November.
