The Slow Burning Hillary Clinton Email Scandal

Updated on April 8, 2016

Devout Clinton supporters say that it is a Republican witch hunt, trying to expose evil where none exists or just gross negligence, when it comes to the year long Clinton email scandal. Is it a scandal? Does it depend on your views on the topic? Is it much ado about nothing? Sort of, like, a misdemeanor and not a felony?

If you believe Fox news, it is major and if justice prevails, which they doubt will, it would sink her bid for the presidency and allow a Republican to win. If she is called in by the Obama Attorney General to be interrogated, it could sink her chances. Would Obama direct the AG to ignore this case behind the scenes?

Federal judges are in the hunt. They are requiring the State Department (recall, Hillary was Secretary of State under Obama) all related documents regarding to her email. The State department claims that many of the items requested are not in their possession or cannot confirm they have them all because many are still in her possession or her aides possession. According to Judge Lamberth, Clinton did not hand over all documents as she claims and there is evidence of wrong-doing and bad faith. All documents are needed to resolve how the email situation came about, what records exist and where are they now.

The judge stated that Clinton email setup was extraordinary. Another judge, Sullivan, also investigating it said her email was totally atypical and “boggles” the mind, in that, the U.S. State Department allowed this in the first place and is very troubling.

Recent discovery and evidence shows that the NSA had a big problem with Clinton’s atypical demand that she used her Blackberry for email. They wanted her to use a computer in a secure facility, as all others did. This concern was in a February 2009 email. Yet, Clinton ignored the NSA. This and other emails were not among the 55,000 pages that Clinton gave the FBI. These emails were found by other means and proves that ALL emails given the FBI did not occur. Clearly, Clinton and others withheld these emails that show the NSA and State Department were not happy about her Blackberry or home server in the basement.

It also proves that Clinton did not tell the truth, in that, the date was February 2009. These emails were to her and her aides. Yet, under oath, she said she did not start using private email account until March 2009.

The investigating judges now have a scent of blood. You can only lie so many times before the truth comes out. So, they are now interviewing eight of her former aides and IT people about the email setup including the top State Department man, Patrick Kennedy and Bryan Pagliano (who was given immunity from prosecution). But the current State Department is already trying to limit the questioning about how classified information was handled then. They are trying to protect Clinton from the judges who are digging further and further.

Already, enough has shown that Clinton was gross negligent in approving the email setup and ignoring the NSA in early 2009. She has not provided all the emails, either, and shows how she is skirting the rules or laws. The FBI is now under more pressure to act against her. The depositions of the eight former employees will occur before the Democratic convention.

If the FBI determines that they will subpoena Clinton, will they? Would the AG interfere at the tacit approval from President Obama? Would the FBI act independent and invite Clinton to appear for questions secretly?

As of now, the independent judges are the lead investigators using discovery rules to obtain the documents and testimony. They are in the hunt and have the smell of wrongdoing already. Because of the recent discovery of emails that were not in those Clinton provided, the scent of suspicion among the judges and those in the FBI, is strong. But will any of be enough?

Probably not until after the election because it would derail her nomination to where even Ted Cruz might become President or worse, Donald Trump.

      This the real America. It's an empire that is decaying. I am sure nothing will happen to Hillary and all will be brushed aside , but worse for America as she will preside over the end of an empire.

      Thanks for sharing an informative hub. Rank hath its Privileges RHIP, and this is the main reason why Clinton will never be indicted by an attorney general appointed by Obama. If this would have happened to any "small fry", they would have been raked over the coals. I am sharing this with HP followers.
