Clinton to be questioned under oath on origins of email server

Capture

By SARAH WESTWOOD

Hillary Clinton will soon face questions under oath about the reasons she set up and maintained a private email server during her four years as secretary of state.

Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, told the Washington Examiner that his group is preparing a set of written questions for Clinton as part of the Freedom of Information Act lawsuit that has already extracted hundreds of documents from the State Department.

Fitton said the questionnaire, which Clinton will be forced to complete within 30 days of receipt, will drill down on the Democratic nominee’s shifting stories about why she relied on an unauthorized email network.

Clinton once said she set up the server system for convenience, in order to carry just one device for both personal and work-related communications.

After the FBI discovered she used multiple servers and devices, Clinton told investigators she had used private email at the behest of Colin Powell, after the former secretary of state advised her to do so at a 2009 dinner party.

But Powell has since rejected that statement, and said he has no recollection of the conversation with Clinton. The controversial email system was already in place at the time Clinton said she spoke with Powell.

Paul Begala flips out on CNN while trying to defend Clinton Foundation

If you want to tell how guilty a Democrat is, just look at how frenzied and deranged their underlings get trying to defend their actions.
Eye's WideOpen

the democrats says “17,000,000 million people in the whole world get life saving drugs”. that number is small compared to the world population of 7,404,976,783. Again my point is made that the left is acutely obtuse. I’m sure their numbers are inflated just like the quarterly jobs numbers.

the same guy continues to say “11.5 million of those who get those life saving drugs get them through the Clinton foundation”….ummm bullshit alert everyone. the Clinton Foundation should be called the Clinton fraudation

Ask the people of Haiti about the Foundation’s “good” works.

Trump wasn’t a career politician like the Clintons and wasn’t running for office when he donated that money. The Clintons have become millionaires because of their positions they’ve held in our government. NO MORE CORRUPT CLINTONS!

It is a different standard for the Clintons.  No one else can get away with the crimes as they have.   The Clinton Foundation gives less than 15% of the donations it receives to charitable purposes.  So, if this Foundation does such wonderful work, how much better would it be if it were run like a reputable charity and 80% of the donations it received went to charitable purposes the donors intended rather than to support the luxurious lifestyle of the Clintons.
Scarlett O'hara

One of the emails stated that one of her rich donors couldn’t get an appointment with the Secretary of State, so the donor got in touch with the Clinton Foundation and had an appointment the next day. Democrats are such liars!

That was some bad acting, even for a pro like Begala.

U.S. Navy Sailor Punished with One Year in Prison for Taking Selfies in a Nuclear Sub!

Apparently, the Hillary Clinton defense only works for Hillary Clinton.

In a beautiful example of the tremendously grotesque hypocrisy that is the modern American system of government, this past Friday a young Navy sailor was sentenced to a year in prison for taking photographs of himself inside a nuclear attack submarine.

Kristian Saucier will be spending the next year in prison, followed by 6-months of home confinement and then 3 years of supervised release once he is released from prison.

He pleaded guilty in May to unauthorized detention of defense information and had faced five to six years in prison under federal sentencing guidelines.

Saucier admitted to taking six photos of classified areas inside the USS Alexandria in 2009 when it was in Groton and he was a 22-year-old machinist mate on the submarine. The photos showed the nuclear reactor compartment, the auxiliary steam propulsion panel and the maneuvering compartment, prosecutors said.

Saucier readily admits that he took the pictures, but just like Democrat presidential candidate, he argues that he mean know harm in doing so. His lawyer, Greg Rinckey was sad to see the result, It was a foolish mistake by a very young man. It’s a very sad case because Kristian Saucier is a fine young man. We don’t believe this was really his true character.” Saucier said that he meant no harm by taking the pictures, he only wanted to be able to show his family and future children what he did during his time in the Navy.

Saucier’s lawyers compared his case to that of Mrs. Clinton’s, arguing that the FBI chose not to charge the Democrat presidential nominee because it could not prove malicious intent behind Hillary Clinton’s bad behavior, so the same standards should be used in Saucier’s case. Investigators could not prove malicious intent, or that anyone else ever saw the pictures, and yet Saucier will now spend a very difficult year in prison. Which is actually a small mercy for Saucier…

Prosecutors asked the judge to hand down a much stiffer sentence — five years in prison, to be exact. Why? Because prosecutors argued that his behavior put our national security at risk. Can you fathom the depth of insanity that would see a sailor who took a few personal pictures of a submarine that most of our enemies probably already know all about sent to prison for putting our “national security at risk,” but Hillary Clinton, who put years’ worth of our nation’s biggest secrets at risk, won’t even be charged with a crime.

It’s utter insanity.
