  1. Because a former SoS is the target of multiple ongoing investigations, both criminal and civil, related to the server as well as violation of public corruption statutes, and her closest aides are being ordered to testify on the matter under oath (likely to be subpoenaed?), maybe ? Reporters and the White House can spin, the AG and FBI can get upset, Clinton can keep giving the same carefully nuanced, canned responses re: "classified" markings which don't exist in reality, at the end of the day, as the head of a federal agency with access to classified information she is expected to recognize and protect it. If she didn't realize that these emails were sensitive, secret or top secret, or didn't act to protect the information after assessing it correctly, she is either incompetent or feels that she is above the rules for handling classified information. If this were on the other side and a Republican was involved in a case being closely monitored by the head of the FBI backed up by educated opinion from government officials, former government officials, national security personnel and former national security personnel, yeah I do think there would clearly be enough to indict that candidate already and take this to trial.
  2. Well maybe she should...“There is absolutely no way that one could not recognize SAP material,” a former senior law enforcement with decades of experience investigating violations of SAP procedures told Fox News. “It is the most sensitive of the sensitive.” http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/hillary-clinton-emails-contained-info-above-top-secret-ig-n499886 Hillary Clinton Emails Held Info Beyond Top Secret: IG Emails from Hillary Clinton's home server contained information classified at levels higher than previously known, including a level meant to protect some of the most sensitive U.S. intelligence, according to a document obtained by NBC News. In a letter to lawmakers, the intelligence community's internal watchdog says some of Clinton's emails contained information classified Top Secret/Special Access Program, a secrecy designation that includes some of the most closely held U.S. intelligence matters. Two American intelligence officials tell NBC News these are not the same two emails from Clinton's server that have long been reported as containing information deemed Top Secret.
  3. Obama must not have gotten the message five weeks ago that anyone was angry at him. Or maybe they are trying to force Hillary out of the race after all. https://pjmedia.com/trending/2016/01/30/fox-news-contacts-in-the-fbi-and-doj-are-super-pissed-off-at-the-white-house/ Contacts in the FBI and DOJ are 'Super Pissed Off' at the White House According to Fox News' chief intelligence correspondent Catherine Herridge, her contacts in the FBI and DOJ are "super pissed off" at what White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said about Hillary Clinton's email problems Friday. "That's not something I'm worried about," he told reporters at the daily briefing. "That statement by Josh Earnest has got the back up of our contacts at the FBI and Justice Department for two reasons… They are super pissed off - to use a technical term. Number one, Josh Earnest has absolutely no clearance or visibility in the FBI investigation. Number two, they say it really seems part of a troubling pattern from the White House because the president earlier said he did not see any national security implications to the Clinton emails and then we found out he had never been briefed."
  4. Kind of like the Snowden case...it may have been illegal but ultimately for the good of humanity (*or something like that)... https://hacked.com/hillary-clinton-email-hacker-to-be-extradited-to-the-us/ A notorious Romanian computer hacker who released some of Hillary Clinton's private emails is facing extradition to the United States of America. Known online as 'Guccifer,' Marcel Lehel, 42, lost his legal case in his home country after Romania's top court of appeal sanctioned a request by the U.S. to extradite him. The ruling is final and the period of extradition could not exceed 18 months. He is best known for hacking sprees that involved hacking and publishing artwork and emails belonging to former US President George W. Bush and the emails of several celebrities including Steve Martin and Leonardo di Caprio is now facing trial in the US following Romania’s approval for his extradition.
  5. Unpredictable is one way to put it.The allegations of rampant voter fraud in 2012 by Ron Paul against Romney and recount that found different results combined with the sudden decision to delay reporting yesterday all fits into a general pattern of Maine being known for election rigging. Hope today goes more smoothly.
  6. For whatever reason they probably wanted to wait until Louisiana polls closed before releasing the Sanders numbers. It was being questioned every place final vote tallies were being posted so I obviously wasn't the only one that had never seen that kind of reporting before.
  7. Well, someone (or many) voted for Sanders in Kansas today because he has been declared the winner, but still no hard numbers reported. More vote shenanigans no doubt...very mysterious...
  8. It looks like Cruz will win Kansas and Maine caucuses today and gain a few more delegates over Trump. Trump should win Louisiana. How goes Kentucky?
  9. Scary stuff. But one small bright spot I think Trump is ahead of what McCain and Romney got for second place and Cruz hasn't won by as much as Huckabee and Santorum in 2008 and 2012
  10. Sanders might not have a choice now. She is the self proclaimed "most transparent public official in modern times" after all... Hillary Clinton: "I've Been The Most Transparent Public Official In Modern Times"http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2016/03/04/hillary_clinton_ive_been_the_most_transparent_public_official_in_modern_times.html
  11. Haha...I know I've been too interested in this over Madonna lately, but am done for now,...
  12. I agree. Even if Hillary submits to a plea arrangement in the end, the fact that she needed to receive ultra sensitive information for her job and went to extraordinary lengths to avoid an account that could handle is going to be a campaign issue. That alone would cause anyone else to lose their top secret clearance. Imagine the kind of incompetence and corruption that awaits America should she become president.
  13. The Attorney General didn't seem particularly worried in an interview last week either even though the investigation has been overseen by career national security prosecutors at the Justice Department along with top notch FBI agents for months. She probably assumed it could be slow tracked to the election and beyond...has anything changed ? Maybe a case being developed that cannot be refused ? It is hard to say outside of the fact that developments definitely seem to have picked up in the last few weeks.
  14. Well, we shall see. If Hillary instructed her closest advisers to send classified emails to an insecure server, per the above articles than she is in as much trouble as they are. The bottom line is that she was trained and and entrusted under oath with top secret authorization to recognize and protect classified material, whether it was marked or not...if a SoS cannot spot beyond top secret intelligence (even Obama admitted that) for what it is she has only dug her grave deeper by messing around with it illegally on dodgy equipment.
  15. I doubt very much a case is ever "winding down" when the Department of Justice is only starting to grant immunity for crucial testimony and federal judges are beginning to clear the way for discovery and/or subpoenas of Hillary and her closest aides. https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/in-clinton-email-investigation-justice-department-grants-immunity-to-former-state-department-staffer/2016/03/02/e421e39e-e0a0-11e5-9c36-e1902f6b6571_story.html https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/public-safety/us-judge-weighs-deeper-probe-into-clintons-private-email-system/2016/02/23/9c27412a-d997-11e5-81ae-7491b9b9e7df_story.html Washington (CNN)A federal judge paved the way Tuesday for possible future subpoenas by the State Department against Hillary Clinton and her longtime aide Huma Abedin. Judge Emmet Sullivan granted a motion in a lawsuit against the State Department Tuesday that could pave the way for future action including, potentially, an order that the State Department subpoena Clinton and top aide Huma Abedin to obtain personal emails they withheld from the State Department. The case is seeking answers to lingering questions about Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server during her time as secretary of state. Sullivan appeared at times to be leaning towards ordering the subpoenas, but ultimately said he would wait to see what the order for discovery yields before making that ruling. "This is the atypical case," Sullivan said, who emphasized earlier in the hearing that discovery is rare in Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) cases, which pertain to information requests to the government.
  16. This IT staffer Bryan Pagliano took the Fifth Amendment to avoid self incrimination when testifying before Congress last Fall. He worked for the State Dept and obviously knew what he was doing with classified info on an unsecured server (not even encrypted at the beginning) was wrong but was given orders to proceed at the highest level. He could have lied at the outset to protect Hillary or continued to plead the Fifth. He was most likely granted immunity because his lawyers dangled something dazzling in front of prosecutors. There is no longer a question that a serious crime was committed. They’ve lined up the sequence for when classified information was available on the secured server and when it ended up on the home brew server. Now the question is who did it and how it was done.
  17. Maybe Bernie had a master plan after all and that was to let Hillary hang herself and be the only other person running for the Democrat nomination when she was indicted. FBI FOCUSING ON HOW SENSITIVE INTEL MADE IT TO CLINTON’S SERVER Yesterday, the New York Times reported that as part of the FBI’s investigation of the Hillary Clinton email scandal, the Bureau is comparing electronic time stamps on classified sources. They hope thereby to figure out whether Clinton aides reviewed the sources and then retyped the information into emails that were sent or forwarded to the Secretary’s private server. Today, a report from Catherine Herridge and Pamela Browne of Fox News suggests that this is part of an effort to determine how sensitive intelligence “jumped the gap” between the classified systems and Clinton’s unsecured personal server. Herridge and Browne were told that there are several possible ways that classified information got onto Clinton’s server: HTTP://WWW.POWERLINEBLOG.COM/ARCHIVES/2016/03/FBI-FOCUSING-ON-HOW-SENSITIVE-INTEL-MAKE-IT-TO-CLINTONS-SERVER.PHP HTTP://WWW.NYTIMES.COM/2016/03/03/US/POLITICS/AS-PRESIDENTIAL-CAMPAIGN-UNFOLDS-SO-DO-INQUIRIES-INTO-HILLARY-CLINTONS-EMAILS.HTML
  18. Here is a link to the original WaPo article. I could be completely off but my best guess is that for immunity to be given the FBI has the evidence and needs the testimony for the Grand Jury. If a Grand Jury has already been convened there could be charges brought or even indictments handed down as early as this spring or summer. Who might that be, that's the million dollar question ??? https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/in-clinton-email-investigation-justice-department-grants-immunity-to-former-state-department-staffer/2016/03/02/e421e39e-e0a0-11e5-9c36-e1902f6b6571_story.html Justice Dept. grants immunity to staffer who set up Clinton email server The Justice Department has granted immunity to a former State Department staffer, who worked on Hillary Clinton’s private email server, as part of a criminal investigation into the possible mishandling of classified information, according to a senior law enforcement official. The official said the FBI had secured the cooperation of Bryan Pagliano, who worked on Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign before setting up the server in her New York home in 2009.
  19. They wouldn’t have offered immunity if they didn’t have her dead to rights (caught red-handed, in the very act of committing a crime or error).. This is a perjury trap. The Justice Department career attorneys wouldn't be involved if there was no evidence of criminal activity.
  20. The candidate that would "punch Russia in the nose" and get us into World War Three....that must be the ticket, and why he won't even win his own state.
  21. If it is Trump v. Hillary the strong neo-con support for Clinton will be an important point in suppressing her vote. Hang everything that has flowed from Obama's failed policies, and that would have resulted from the enactment of her own more hawkish stances, around her neck and twist it hard.
  22. CNN spent all day yesterday trashing Trump so it isn't like they are neutral and unbiased, and the poll was probably just put out on Super Tuesday to try and influence the outcome. A sample size of 920 is also a bit odd...like stopping once you get the results you want. But Trump did beat Clinton on the issue questions for whatever that is worth.
  23. Was that the poll that also had Sanders beating Trump ? With registered (not even likely) voters....The Democrats dropped almost 3 million votes yesterday from 2008 (2,848,930 to be precise) while the Republicans soared with an increase of 3,001,499. The Democrats are in trouble.
  24. And it looks like the politics of personal vulgarity has finally come between Chelsea and her close friend Ivanka Trump as per the Daily Mail and New York Daily News (which I believe in this case )....:hopefully they can make up after the election ( http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3381625/Hillary-Trump-s-jabs-one-putting-strain-Ivanka-Chelsea-s-friendship.html
  25. Well he is polling 10 points higher than Romney at this point and the primary popular vote is almost doubled from 2012 on the Republican side so we will see. A high percentage either stayed home in 2012 or voted for Obama also so quite honestly I wouldn't be surprised if that 30% or whatever is made up with Democrats, Independents and new voters. : http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/donald-trump-polling-mitt-romney_us_56d47285e4b0871f60ec1461
