The election’s over – but Hillary Clinton’s emails are still coming to light. And they help illustrate why the FBI declared she was “extremely careless” with the information flowing across her secret server. A new batch of messages released by the State Department on Tuesday shows the former secretary of state and her team routinely shared her upcoming schedules, talking points and sensitive items – such as her iPad password – via the homebrewed system. Other newly revealed emails, which were posted as the result of litigation, show Clinton’s top advisers griping about her during her time as secretary of State; an
The "homebrewed" system narrative needs to stop also. She intentionally installed servers and paid for the to be operated and maintained. The homebrew aspect implies an old Mac in the basement or similar which is completely and utterly false. This server was put in place to shield the activities of the Clinton Criminal Foundation from FOIA disclosures during the Secretary of State tenure.
Hard to believe all of her emails are not in possession of Russia or China. I expect Sessions, as a conscientious prosecutor, will have to press charges. If he does not, then a whole bunch of young GIs have gone to prison for much less damaging offenses on security.
In the military, leaving a file cabinet unlocked that contains even routine classified information is enough to land a person in deep doo. Hillary exposed Her file cabinet to the entire world and thinks nothing of it.
This appears to support Assange´s claim that a teenager could have hacked these careless criminals. The FBI cannot figure out if Hillary´s server was hacked, but we know that John Podesta´s accounts were hacked by the Russians? Podesta´s password was "password".
All of the screeching and the hearings about Russian hacking of the DNC and Podesta only serve to make it blatantly obvious that Illary´s unsecured server was hacked by every government and probably half the teenagers on the planet.
When I had a security clearance (most of my career), we got written up for all kinds of violations - forgetting a badge, leaving a classified document on a desk in a closed office, wearing our badges in public, locking a safe, but not signing the lockup sheet. Three infractions in six months was grounds for losing a clearance.
Compare those rules to what Hillary got away with.
Just goes to illustrate how liberals who believe they are so smart are actually really dumb and ignorant. Like modern education in our public schools and universities... they know a lot of stuff, but most of it is either not true, based in reality, or irrelevant. She thought if she had her own server, it would hide all her correspondence from the world. Computer security never even came up as an issue. That´s what happens when you rely on other people to do everything for you, and you choose people based on ideology instead of competence.
If the situation was reversed, the loathsome lickspittle demmedia would be hyperventilating 24/7 about the technical incompetence of the Republicans and the wonderful abilities of the wonderful Dems because their secrets were not spread everywhere. Now? Crickets.
The Russian hacking story failed the smell test from the first. Hillary had already sold off a third of US uranium rights to the Russians. They had every expectation she would continue this pattern. Second, the Russians are not as stupid as the Democratic media. If indeed the Russians had hacked Hillary´s server, the contents would have been much more valuable as blackmail. The Russians would have preferred Hillary as president.
#10, I share your experiences, however, what the PIAPS had on her ´puter was SAP info. Far, far above the sensitivity of what we were normally tasked to deal with. Special Intelligence or codeword restricted info was serious but still not as dangerous to the US as the stuff the PIAPS was cavalierly handling. Her arrogance is/was breathtaking—not a word I use easily. The country that the enemedia is ignoring is North Korea. There is no worse enemy, and it has talented, dedicated hackers. Make no mistake, they were into the PIAPS ´puters.
What is truly intriguing about this is how STUPID the dems are. Your Grandmother knows enough not to share passwords and that "password" is not a good password. Yet these "geniuses", who exist to tell the rest of us what to do and what is fair can´t follow the simplest practices to keep their emails private.
Would we really want people who can´t wait to claim their money from Nigeria to be running the Country?
This e-mail crap about them affecting the outcome of the election is all bull. The only thing I got out of these e-mails is Podesta is a fool with the password "Password" and the DNC is dysfunctional. The only one who really got burned is Bernie. Also this Russian woke up the Warmonger McCain who is ready to declare war on Russia. What about the DNC whistleblower who was found dead in Washington DC sounds like he was the leaker because Julian Assange is taking this very hard and put out a $20,000 reward for any clues.
I´m sorry number 2 and it´s a risk for me to take such LDot posting violations in such a cavalier manner but her server secrets couldn´t possibly have been gotten by the Russians and Chinese. Did you not know that John McCain and Lindsey Graham made it clear the Russians have never hacked anything but the elections? Why in you world would you or anyone assume that an unsecured server used by the Secretary of State filled with the highest classified information, available to our enemies 24/7/365, and known to exist and be readily available with all kinds of information that put the nation in danger would want anything other than info that would force you and I at gunpoint to vote for Trump? Wake up and smell the Congressional Lunch Room coffee.
Come on man, if the information in her server and in the Wikileak emails were important and caused any damage, embarrassment or loss of a US operative´s life during Hillary´s tenure, Senators McCain and Graham would have emphasized that instead of election hacking. So, you must conclude along with the all knowing senators that the ONLY security concern we have ever had in the past "scandal free" eight years is Putin´s election hacking.
German Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen on Sunday rejected U.S. President Donald Trump´s claim that Germany owes NATO and the United States "vast sums" of money for defense."There is no debt account at NATO," von der Leyen said in a statement, adding that it was wrong to link the alliance´s target for members to spend 2 percent of their economic output on defense by 2024 solely to NATO."Defense spending also goes into UN peacekeeping missions, into our European missions and into our contribution to the fight against IS terrorism," von der Leyen said.She said everyone wanted the burden to
A former State Department IT technician who set up Hillary Clinton´s private email server in her home may face criminal charges for avoiding multiple subpoenas to testify on Clinton´s email server. Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R., Utah), chairman of the House Oversight Committee, sent a letter on Thursday to Attorney General Jeff Session asking that Bryan Pagliano be charged for ignoring multiple subpoenas requesting that he testify before the Oversight Committee. Pagliano was responsible for managing Clinton´s private server and also served as a senior adviser to the former secretary of state.
Nearly 2,000 people are believed to have died from opioid overdoses last year in Massachusetts, a record tally of death and suffering that came despite widespread public and private campaigns to stanch the state’s addiction crisis.A state Department of Public Health report released Friday showed that opioids were confirmed as the cause of 1,465 deaths and suspected in 514 additional deaths. Opioids killed or were suspected of killing five times more people than died in car crashes.The main culprit appeared to be the drug fentanyl, which was present in an increasing number of cases, even as heroin-related deaths declined. Illegal
On Friday, President Donald Trump and his entourage will jet for the third straight weekend to a working getaway at his oceanfront Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Florida.On Saturday, Trump’s sons Eric and Don Jr., with their Secret Service details in tow, will be nearly 8,000 miles away in the United Arab Emirates, attending the grand opening of a Trump-brand golf resort in the ‘‘Beverly Hills of Dubai.’’ Meanwhile, New York police will keep watch outside the Trump Tower in Manhattan, the chosen home of first lady Melania Trump and son Barron.

The State Department under Rex Tillerson, who has been among President Trump’s least visible Cabinet officials and is still lacking much of his senior staff, is undergoing further shrinkage in its upper echelons, according to current and former U.S. officials. Kristie Kenney, a three-time ambassador and career Foreign Service officer who has served as State Department counselor for the past year, has been told that her services are no longer needed in that job and that her staff is to be reassigned. The offices of counselor, who provides strategic guidance to the secretary, and the empty slot of deputy secretary for
President Trump’s national security adviser wants to fight not just Islamic terrorists but the “radical ideology of Islam,” and he plans to do it from the grass roots up, starting with our children at schools while also using social media.Dealing with the global Islamist threat on a tactical level through drone strikes and arrests hasn’t worked, retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn argues, according to his largely overlooked 2016 book, “The Field of Fight: How We Can Win the Global War Against Radical Islam and Its Allies.” He wants to combat it more broadly, using informational warfare, among other things, on
Washington — Now, stacked on the Trump tower of petrifying things we have to worry about — war with Iran, war with China, war with Mexico, war with Islam, war with koala bears — there is yet another looming disaster.The East Wing is perilously behind in planning for the Easter Egg Roll. Is the White House dropping the ball — or rather, the ovoid? As our omnipresent new president hijacked our reality, the first lady vanished, sparking headlines for nary a glimpse in D.C. since the inaugural.Just as there is a gush of leaks from the resistance in the federal
Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos said Wednesday that the riot that canceled his planned speech at the University of California-Berkeley was "heavily ironic and very, I think, self-defeating for the social justice left."Yiannopoulos´ planned talk was scrapped after violent protesters hurled smoke bombs, broke windows and started a bonfire outside the student union where he was to appear."No one’s safety is at risk from different opinions," Yiannopoulos told "Tucker Carlson Tonight" in a phone interivew. "No one’s physical safety is endangered by political ideas from a speaker on campus, but universities have sort of allowed this stuff to happen, and even
WASHINGTON — President Trump takes medication for three ailments, including a prostate-related drug to promote hair growth, Mr. Trump’s longtime physician, Dr. Harold N. Bornstein, said in a series of recent interviews. The other drugs are antibiotics to control rosacea, a common skin problem, and a statin for elevated blood cholesterol and lipids.Dr. Bornstein, who spoke by telephone in four interviews over the past month, also said that Mr. Trump takes a daily baby aspirin to reduce the risk of a heart attack. Over all, he pronounced Mr. Trump healthy and his medical care “as exactly up to date.” Dr. Bornstein granted

Linda Sarsour, one of the organizers behind Saturday’s Women’s March, being held in Washington, D.C., was recently spotted at a large Muslim convention in Chicago posing for pictures with an accused financier for Hamas, the terrorist group.Sarsour, the head of the Arab American Association of New York and an Obama White House “Champion of Change,” was speaking at last month’s 15th annual convention of the Muslim American Society and Islamic Circle of North America. While there, she posed for a picture with Salah Sarsour, a member of the Islamic Society of Milwaukee and former Hamas operative who was jailed in
Protesters made themselves heard in the nation’s capital Friday, leaving a trail of damage along some city blocks, disrupting security checkpoints at President Donald Trump’s inauguration, and clashing with police as Trump supporters tried to celebrate. As people poured into the city to watch Trump sworn in as the 45th president, they encountered protesters across the area throughout the day. Many of the demonstrations were nonviolent, with people holding signs that spoke to their causes and concerns. One protest even took on a carnival atmosphere, with puppets, stilt walkers and a giant inflatable elephant wearing a sign that read “racism.”
California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters said that she´s ready to impeach President Trump on his 61st day in office. "Get ready for impeachment," Waters tweeted. (Tweet) It´s unknown if Waters was referring to a specific reason to impeach Trump or was just making a general statement. The tweet comes a day after FBI Director James Comey revealed the bureau is looking into any possible contacts between Trump´s campaign and the Russian influence campaign on the presidential campaign. The intelligence community has reported in the past The Kremlin worked against Hillary Clinton´s election and developed a preference for Trump.
Last week, the British intelligence agency GCHQ took the rare step of debunking as “utterly ridiculous” the Trump administration’s insinuation that Britain spied on Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign. On Monday, FBI Director James B. Comey testified plainly that “I have no information that supports” President Trump’s accusations that his predecessor ordered the “wires tapped” at Trump Tower. These false statements from the White House are part of a disturbing pattern of behavior that poses real and potentially profound dangers to U.S. national security. The foundation of the United States’ unrivaled global leadership rests only in part on our military

Armed Police have opened fire and shot an intruder inside the grounds of the Houses of Parliament amid reports a car drove into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge. Several shots were fired at around 2.35pm moments after a loud bang was heard near the grounds of Parliament. Three bodies were visible on the floor outside Parliament and the Palace was placed on an immediate lock down. Others were seen lying in the road on Westminster Bridge, where reports suggest around six people were knocked down by a car. Prime Minister Theresa May is said to have been bundled into a car by a plain-clothes police

Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Trump, is so New Jersey that her Secret Service codename is “Blueberry,” but what many may not know, is her grandfather allegedly belonged to the Mafia in the 80s. Jimmy “The Brute” DiNatale, Conway’s late grandfather, allegedly had mob ties and was a “significant criminal associate" of Nicodemo “Little Nicky” Scarfo – the heir to the Bruno crime family based in Philadelphia, according to a memorial service page and law enforcement officials who spoke to the Philly Voice. The page lists Kellyanne Elizabeth Fitzpatrick Conway as his granddaughter and describes DiNatale as “a reputed Bruno-Scarfo
Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. on Tuesday said he and his estranged wife Sandi Jackson are $1.8 million in debt thanks to legal bills from their federal criminal prosecution and mounting fees from an acrimonious divorce playing out in courtrooms in two cities. Jackson Jr. talked to reporters during an at-times rambling question-and-answer session following a brief hearing in his divorce case at the Daley Center, opining on the state of Washington politics and the best way to settle the couple’s bills. Neither Jackson nor his wife, former alderman Sandi Jackson, has worked since their release from prison after serving sentences
The family of Seth Rich, a staffer for the Democratic National Committee who was murdered last July in Washington, D.C., has launched a crowdfunding page to raise money for investigating the unsolved case. Aaron Rich, the brother of the victim, created the GoFundMe page on Sunday to draw attention to the unsolved crime that took place July 10 in the Bloomingdale neighborhood of Northwest D.C. and raise $200,000. "One thing that no one tells you, and something we weren´t prepared to hear when we lost Seth, is that if a case isn´t solved immediately, it could take months or years before
As Republicans hail Judge Neil Gorsuch as an "outstanding" Supreme Court nominee, Democrats are lining up against him for partisan reasons. "My view is very simple," Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) told a news conference on Tuesday. "And that is, there is a cloud now hanging over the head of the president, and while that´s happening, to have a lifetime appointment made by this president seems unseemly, and there ought to be delay." (Video) (Earlier Tuesday, in remarks on the Senate floor, Schumer said it would be "unseemly" to move forward so fast with confirming Gorsuch while the "gray
South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham on Tuesday questioned Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch about what it would take to impeach President Trump. (Snip) "In case President Trump is watching, which he may very well be, one you did a good job picking Judge Gorsuch," Graham said to laughs, "and number two—here´s the bad part—if you start waterboarding people, you may get impeached. Is that a fair summary?" "Senator, the impeachment power belongs to this body," Gorsuch answered.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer called for a delay of Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation on Tuesday given the ongoing FBI investigation into potential collusion between President Donald Trump’s campaign and Russian officials. “You can bet, if the shoe were on the other foot and a Democratic president was under investigation by the FBI, the Republicans would be howling at the moon about filling a Supreme Court seat in such circumstances,” Schumer said on the floor. Schumer’s demand is highly unlikely to gain traction with Senate GOP leaders, who are planning a vote on Gorsuch early next month. But the move
State Waste: The Golden State´s vaunted bullet-train project, planned to connect San Francisco to Los Angeles, may be in its financial death throes. If so, it´s probably the best fiscal news for the Golden State in years. To say that Gov. Jerry Brown´s pet project, the so-called high-speed train, is troubled would be an understatement. From the very beginning, it has been a testament to political hubris, fiscal irresponsibility, outright lies and abysmal planning. The bullet train idea was floated on a blustery gust of political promises in 2008, when proponents put the high-speed rail to the state´s voters in
