Newly ‘found’ emails contradict Hillary Clinton’s sworn testimony
Not that this is going to matter at this point but newly found emails contradict Hillary Clinton’s sworn testimony that she turned over all of her official State Department emails as requested. These new emails also destroy her narrative that she did not begin using her personal email server to conduct State Department business until March of 2009.
Here is more:
Judicial Watch announced today that it has obtained State Department documents from February 2009 containing emails that appear to contradict statements by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that, “as far as she knew,” all of her government emails were turned over to the State Department and that she did not use her clintonemail.com email system until March 2009.
On February 13, 2009, Cheryl Mills (Clinton’s then-chief of staff) sent Clinton an email describing efforts by the National Security Agency to address demands for a secure Blackberry:
In meeting with the NSA person today ([Redacted] NSA’s rep to DOS) – she indicated they could address our BB so that BB could work in the sciff [Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility] and be secure based upon some modifications that could be done to each BB (more below).
Mills attaches an email from an unnamed NSA official that reports:
Debbie Plunkett, D/Chief of our Information Assurance Directorate, is personally assembling a knowledgeable team to work with you and other members of your staff to move forward on your Blackberry requirement. She will engage State’s CIO and DS/comms security folks to ensure everyone is aware of the art of the possible … I am confident we can get to YES on this! [Emphasis in original]
That same day, on February 13 at 12:33 pm Hillary Clinton, using her unsecured firstname.lastname@example.org account responds, “That’s good news.”
And there is more but you get the point; Hillary Clinton was using her personal email server to conduct State Department business at least one month before she testified under oath that she was, and contrary to her sworn statement she did not turn over all official State Department related emails.
America’s Watchtower previously reported in this post that Hillary Clinton knew her Blackberry was not secure but used it anyway and now Judicial Watch is reporting the same:
“So now we know that, contrary to her statement under oath suggesting otherwise, Hillary Clinton did not turn over all her government emails,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “We also know why Hillary Clinton falsely suggests she didn’t use clintonemail.com account prior to March, 18, 2009 – because she didn’t want Americans to know about her February 13, 2009, email that shows that she knew her Blackberry and email use was not secure.”
