State Department Inspector General finds Hillary Clinton violated the department’s email rules

May 25, 2016

   According to this story a State Department watchdog has determined that Hillary Clinton violated the department’s email rules by using a private email server on which to conduct ALL her official State Department business. 

  Here is more:

A State Department watchdog concluded that Hillary Clinton failed to comply with the agency’s policies on records while using a personal email server that was not — and, officials say, would never have been — approved by agency officials, according to a report released to lawmakers on Wednesday.

The report also notes that she had an “obligation to discuss using her personal email account” but did not get permission from the people who would have needed to approve the technology, who said they would not have done so, if they had been asked.

“According to the current [chief information officer] and assistant secretary for diplomatic security, Secretary Clinton had an obligation to discuss using her personal email account to conduct official business with their offices, who in turn would have attempted to provide her with approved and secured means that met her business needs,” the report reads. “However, according to these officials, [the relevant people] did not — and would not — approve her exclusive reliance on a personal email.”

  This is not news in and of itself because it was pretty well known the former Secretary of State violated the rules by using a private email server but the report also found she did not properly preserve her official records and did not surrender all of her emails before leaving office as required under the Federal Records Act:

“Secretary Clinton should have preserved any Federal records she created and received on her personal account by printing and filing those records with the related files in the Office of the Secretary,” the report states. “At a minimum, Secretary Clinton should have surrendered all emails dealing with Department business before leaving government service and, because she did not do so, she did not comply with the Department’s policies that were implemented in accordance with the Federal Records Act.”

 Hillary Clinton In one email with Huma Abedin Hillary Clinton expressed a concern about using a State Department email address because she was afraid her personal emails would be made public (and with the FBI now investigating Clinton bagman, Terry McAuliffe, during his tenure at The Clinton Foundation it is easy to speculate as to why) and I understand that concern. 

  However that excuse does not hold water with me because she could have easily used two email addresses–one for business and one for personal issues but she chose not to supposedly for convenience. I have four email accounts for different reasons–one of them is for work and the others are not. I do not use my work email for personal business and I do not use my personal email address for work and it is not that hard to do.

  If Hillary Clinton is not savvy enough to manage two separate email accounts perhaps she is not savvy enough to run the country. Just saying…

    This evening Bret Baer interviewed a Clinton press secretary. This guy was a really good prevaricator as he was convincing in his assertions that the worlds most corrupt and dangerous woman is pure as the driven snow. Baer got nowhere with him. This piece of human garbage could sell a pair of shoes to a legless man with the same ease that Chaka misled the naive and ignorant voters; an act soon to be reprised by pant suit. This is going nowhere.

      I think you are right about this going nowhere in the end but until it is over I am not going to let it die!

      btw Peter, liked your word usage ‘prevaricator’ … I admit – ‘had to look it up’! but it’s apropos. Even if the party doesn’t get the votes, they’ll hack their way thru it to make it look good. Brings this to mind: “A town in Austria had a 150 percent voter turnout. This can only mean one thing – that the liberal who got in stole 100 percent of his votes.” Found it on Stone’s site, who just posted: Paul Craig Roberts: Elections won’t cut it, America needs armed revolution http://82.221.129.208 “But Americans will have to do more than wake up, as they cannot rescue themselves via the voting booth. In my opinion, the American people will remain serfs until they wake up to Revolution.”

        I just saw an article last night where LA has found hundreds of dead people have been voting for years. Not that this surprises me but the left loves to claim there is no such thing as voter fraud.

    It seems all this politicians (leaders ruining this Country) supply lawyers w/ jobs, while the foundation crumbles. Ill-gotten gain.

    The State Department’s IGO report appears to be more of a cya report. Page 43 of the report:

    Conclusion
    Longstanding, systemic weaknesses related to electronic records and communications have existed within the Office of the Secretary that go well beyond the tenure of any one Secretary of State. OIG recognizes that technology and Department policy have evolved considerably since Secretary Albright’s tenure began in 1997. Nevertheless, the Department generally and the Office of the Secretary in particular have been slow to recognize and to manage effectively the legal requirements and cybersecurity risks associated with electronic data communications, particularly as those risks pertain to its most senior leadership. OIG expects that its recommendations will move the Department steps closer to meaningfully addressing these risks.

      It is funny you mentioned it being a cya report because I was thinking the same thing when I got on the computer this morning, they are trying to distance themselves from Hillary.

    The timing of this report and the actors who may be involved may signal the beginning of throwing Hillary under the bus.

    Brian Fallon Hillary’s press person questioned the timing of the State Department’s IGO report on CNN. He further claimed “reports” from inside the office claiming that the investigation had an “anti-Clinton bias.”

    Interesting as well that she and her comrades refused to cooperate with the I.G.

      I think she thought based on the campaign contributions that she would not get stabbed in the back.

      You are probably right about that CJ, but I think we are finding out that nobody wants to take the fall for her. Hopefully she learns the hard way.

    Maybe they could make it easier and just state what she did do ‘within the law’ and note anythings else wasn’t! Those who are ‘brainwashed by the evil empire system’ would just state: ‘She did for our best interest’ or Proves that the Laws need to be changed! only for her and her kind though (like they already are!).
    It seems to prove the belief that ‘some that live on this earth were planted by aliens’ (the others) We’re seeing more and more evidence of that daily! The rest of us got here God’s Way. 🙂
