“We continue to uncover the mishandling of classified information in Clinton emails that she tried to hide or destroy. Attorney General Barr should immediately order a new investigation of the Hillary Clinton email scandal.” – Tom Fitton, Judicial Watch
A newly unearthed batch of heavily redacted, classified emails from Hillary Clinton’s personal email server obtained by Judicial Watch reveal that Clinton discussed establishing a “private, 100% off-the-record” back channel of communication. The emails also show there was close coordination between the State Department and the Clinton Foundation implicating Clinton in “pay-to-play” moves that sold access to the Obama administration.
The 756-page group of new documents, revealed Thursday as part of a transparency lawsuit by Judicial Watch, seemingly contradicted Clinton’s insistence under oath in 2015 that she had turned over all of her sensitive work-related emails to the State Department, and included a slew of classified communications on everything from foreign policy to State Department personnel matters:
On five occasions Clinton’s secretary, Lauren Jiloty, sent Clinton’s sensitive daily itinerary to her on her unsecure email account.
WE WILL BE REPORTING ON MORE FROM THE EMAILS BUT THE DISCUSSION ON ISRAEL IS IMPORTANT:
BLUMENTHAL AND CLINTON DISCUSS JEWISH SUPPORTERS IN AMERICA:
In a bombshell January 2009 email uncovered by Judicial Watch, Blumenthal warned Clinton about taking a tough stance on Israel:
“Every one of your conversations and communications with Bibi Netanyahu flows directly and instantly back to top Jewish leadership … You should, of course, assume that nothing involving him is private.”
Blumenthal then noted that Bibi is “deeply connected” to the “US-media, Jewish groups, Republican leaders, and right-wing Christian right organizations.”
Clinton adviser Lanny Davis in 2010 also offered Hillary another back channel for communication: “private and highly trusted communication line, unofficial and personal, to PM N[etanyahu]. … [N]o one on the planet (other than your wonderful husband) can get this done as well as you…”
Davis backed off of following through with this back channel but it is just another example of the slippery politics involved here.
Thank goodness Judicial Watch is doing the heavy lifting for everyone else! There’s so much more in the 756-page document that implicates Hillary Clinton. We’re with Tom Fitton and think AG Barr needs to act now:
“Attorney General Barr should immediately order a new investigation of the Hillary Clinton email scandal.”
