IG Report confirms Obama lied about Hillary's emails


#1

It only took the IG 2 years to figure out what everyone already knew.

One aspect of the Inspector Generals’ report on the FBI handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation has been a bit overshadowed by the media. The fact that President Barack Obama lied to the American people when he claimed he only learned of Hillary Clinton’s use of an unauthorized, non-secure, non-governmental email server while she was Secretary of State.

In March 2015, when the Clinton email scandal was first breaking, CBS White House correspondent Bill Plante asked Obama about his knowledge of the matter:

Plante: Mr. President, when did you first learn that Hillary Clinton used an email system outside the U.S. government for official business while she was secretary of state?

Obama: The same time everybody else learned it through news reports.

But, that’s just not so.

Sean Davis, at The Federalist, saw the footnotes showing Obama’s involvement. “FBI analysts and Prosecutor 2 told us that former President Barack Obama was one of the 13 individuals with whom Clinton had direct contact using her clintonemail.com account,” the report says in a footnote on page 89. “Obama, like other high level government officials, used a pseudonym for his username on his official government email account.”

I interviewed Davis about this item on WMAL in Washington yesterday:

“Yeah, and that’s something we suspected for a while but I believe this is the first time it was confirmed. According to the Inspector General, Obama was one of thirteen individuals with whom Clinton emailed directly and in fact she even emailed him directly, according to the report, from the territory of a foreign adversary. And this is important because Obama had previously claimed that like everything else he learned as President, he first learned about Hillary’s secret private email from the pages of the newspapers. We know that’s not true now. In fact, it’s almost certainly a lie and it gives us some insight into why there was actually never any charges against her, because there is no way the FBI and DOJ could have gone after her for misuse or mishandling of classified info, if in fact the President was doing the exact same thing at the same time. So it’s a pretty earth shattering bombshell in that report as far as I’m concerned. “

Why is this important?

Andrew McCarthy at National Review noted early this year that Obama’s knowledge and culpability in the Clinton email scheme was a key motivating factor in James Comey’s decision to exonerate Clinton:

If Clinton had been charged, Obama’s culpable involvement would have been patent. In any prosecution of Clinton, the Clinton–Obama emails would have been in the spotlight. For the prosecution, they would be more proof of willful (or, if you prefer, grossly negligent) mishandling of intelligence. More significantly, for Clinton’s defense, they would show that Obama was complicit in Clinton’s conduct yet faced no criminal charges.

That is why such an indictment of Hillary Clinton was never going to happen. The latest jaw-dropping disclosures of text messages between FBI agent Peter Strzok and his paramour, FBIlawyer Lisa Page, illustrate this point.

We KNOW virtually all government email servers including the CIA get hacked on a regular basis,do we know if Clintons private email server was ever hacked???

Why do you ask questions you already know the answer to???

  • A Chinese-owned company penetrated former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private server, according to sources briefed on the matter.
  • The company inserted code that forwarded copies of Clinton’s emails to the Chinese company in real time.
  • The Intelligence Community Inspector General warned of the problem, but the FBI subsequently failed to act, Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert said during a July hearing.

A Chinese-owned company operating in the Washington, D.C., area hacked Hillary Clinton’s private server throughout her term as secretary of state and obtained nearly all her emails, two sources briefed on the matter told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

The Chinese firm obtained Clinton’s emails in real time as she sent and received communications and documents through her personal server, according to the sources, who said the hacking was conducted as part of an intelligence operation.

The Chinese wrote code that was embedded in the server, which was kept in Clinton’s residence in upstate New York. The code generated an instant “courtesy copy” for nearly all of her emails and forwarded them to the Chinese company, according to the sources.

The Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) found that virtually all of Clinton’s emails were sent to a “foreign entity,” Rep. Louie Gohmert, a Texas Republican, saidat a July 12 House Committee on the Judiciary hearing. He did not reveal the entity’s identity, but said it was unrelated to Russia.

Two officials with the ICIG, investigator Frank Rucker and attorney Janette McMillan, met repeatedly with FBI officials to warn them of the Chinese intrusion, according to a former intelligence officer with expertise in cybersecurity issues, who was briefed on the matter. He spoke anonymously, as he was not authorized to publicly address the Chinese’s role with Clinton’s server.

Among those FBI officials was Peter Strzok, who was then the bureau’s top counterintelligence official. Strzok was fired this monthfollowing the discovery he sent anti-Trump texts to his mistress and co-worker, Lisa Page. Strzok didn’t act on the information the ICIG provided him, according to Gohmert.

The investigations will quickly be closed when the new congress is seated.


#6

The only thing they can shut down are house investigations.


#7

You can be certain the Dems will quickly shut down any investigation into anything related to democrats i.e. Hillary. The media will certainly either back page any cancellations or ignore them.

The Senate is srill in Repubs control and can investigate . This is only the tip of the iceberg about Schmobamas lies.

#16

A complete narcissist as well. I was staying away from anything mentioning him until I watched his hearing at Congress. As you said, A bad, bad dude. The guy needs to be in jail, honestly, and off the streets.


#17

Is this surprising from a former president who said his administration would be transparent?? It was transparent enough that we could could see through the administration and see how bad they were. Will you SCHMOBAMAPHILES admit to his use of the IRS against conservative organizations or is there SELECTIVE AMNESIA!!! TRUMP 2020

Want to try again???

He really isn’t that much different from Comey, Mc Cabe is he.

One has to wonder hwy they are not prosecuted for their actions.

It’s a combination of tradition and gutlessness. Traditionally we don’t go after members of the previous administration unless the violations are egregious and ongoing.

This has been a stabilizing factor and aided us in our “Peaceful Transitions of Power”. Unfortunately democrats have continually taken advantage of this and have gotten away with a hell of a lot as a result.

It’s been pushed way too far in my opinion particularly by the last administration and our new AG needs to grow a pair and start going after the worst of the offenders whole hog. Let them actually pay for their crimes for a change as an example to future administrations.
