Antoine is at La Table
Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Monday, March 9th, 2015. Our delightful French friend, Ant Antoine, is beside me at the breakfast table. Antoine is thinking about the latest scandal to hit the Obama administration. Hillary Clinton conducted all her State Department business on her own, unsecured private e-mail account. Please don't blame President Obama for not knowing about this account. He found out when we found out on television. What a guy! Antoine is preparing delicate apple crepes for breakfast this morning. I will be brewing up batches of Cafe au Lait. Won't you join us? We look forward to your arrival.
Not Exactly New News
Thank you for joining me this morning. This past week was notable for yet another scandal involving the Obama Administration. It was revealed in a big way that when Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State she used her own e-mail account instead of a proper account through the State Department. Her actions put our nation in jeopardy and were in direct violation of policy. Of course, if anyone was really paying attention, this private account was well known among her associates. In fact, the public, at least those who were listening, became aware of Clinton's e-mail about two years ago. At that time, a Romanian activist using the name Guccifer hacked into an AOL account of her associate Sidney Blumenthal. The hacker uncovered loads of work e-mails between the two. All were off Clinton's personal account. So this current storm , although important and egregious, isn't new. We can most probably assume that this sudden interest on the part of the Obama Administration into this mess is occurring because anything is better than talking about Iran and Bebe Netanyahu. Politics and the people who play at it are, for the most part, awful.
It Makes a Difference!
Of course, we can expect Clinton to dismiss the story as insignificant. She has offered to release the e-mails. What a thoughtful and gracious offer on Clinton's part. It does beg the question as to exactly which e-mails are going to be released. The malevolent beauty of a private e-mail account not subjected to government scrutiny is that she can erase anything she wants. She announced that she wants the public to see her e-mails. How strange that she set up a private, secret account the minute she assumed the role of Secretary of State. Hillary Clinton's actions put this nation in grave danger. There was enormous potential for classified information to be read by foreign spies, hackers and heads of state. This culture of secrecy permeated the entire State Department during her tenure.There is also the troubling matter of more than $6 billion that went missing under her watch. This money has still not been accounted for. The only explanation thus far is that the State Department misplaced the money. If that's an explanation, then I'm Harry Truman!
There is also another disturbing aspect to this story. It has been revealed that one secret account wasn't enough for Clinton. She actually had several different private e-mail addresses that all ran off her private server. In 2014 Judicial Watch initiated a lawsuit against the State Department asking for all the e-mails sent between Clinton, and her top aide, Huma-Abedin. They also asked for e-mails between Clinton and the wife of Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohammed Morsi. These e-mails spanned a period of time between 2009 and 2013. Both Clinton and Abedin conducted government business via personal e-mail. It is vitally important that we get these e-mails and lay bare the connection between Hillary Clinton and members of the Brotherhood. Abider's family are all prominent members of the Muslim Brotherhood. It is time to get our collective heads out of the sand.
Let's Get Real!
There is nothing accidental or innocent about any of this. Hillary Clinton deliberately set up these accounts to keep her actions secret from critics, enemies and the government. As I write this, teams of lawyers and spin artists are toiling away trying to make this all disappear. No matter how hard they try, the facts speak for themselves, as does the law. The Federal Records Act requires the preservation of all official records. E-mails are covered by this requirement, and everyone in the State Department was well aware of the protocol. Clinton used private e-mail all the time. During her entire time as Secretary of State her e-mails were in violation of the Federal Records Act. It is time to pay the piper.
Let's go citizens of America
The day of reckoning has arrived
It's time for Hillary to be archived!
