The leading Washington-based government watchdog reported today that when former first lady Hillary R. Clinton left her post as secretary of state, President Barack Obama’s administration restricted access to her records and permitted her to take boxes of documents out of the building with her.
“We already know the Obama State Department let Hillary Clinton steal and then delete her government emails, which included classified information,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
“These new records show that was only part of the scandal,” he said.
“These new documents show the Obama State Department had a deal with Hillary Clinton to hide her calls logs and schedules, which would be contrary to FOIA and other laws,” he said. “When are the American people going to get an honest investigation of the Clinton crimes?”
Clinton and her deputy chief of staff Huma Abedin hauled out of Foggy Bottom with electronic and physical records with the full approval of the government after they filed paperwork claiming the materials were personal and unclassified and not subject to archival regulations–including Abedin personally taking away five boxes labeled “Muslim Engagement Documents,” the watchdog said.
Also removed from the State Department by Clinton were records stretching from 1993 to 2008, the period when she was the first lady and then a senator, as well as documents relating to gifts Clinton received as the nation’s top diplomat. Gifts received by federal employees are heavily regulated.
Judicial Watch said huge swaths records, which included files of Clinton’s calls and schedules, have been exempted from Freedom of Information requests, as revealed the watchdog’s request for all DS-1904, the department’s Authorization for the Removal of Personal Papers and Non-Record Materials form, submitted for Clinton, Abedin, as well as Cheryl Mills, Clinton’s State Department chief of staff and Jacob Sullivan, Clinton’s senior national security aide.
Mills, Abedin and Sullivan are the former first lady’s enduring troika of confidantes, who have helped her integrate her professional and personal ventures, like the Clinton Foundation, and her transitions from her Senate seat representing New York, her 2008 campaign for president, her four-year tenure at the State Department, her 2016 campaign for president and now her return to private life for the first time, since the 1970’s before her husband William J. Clinton began his political career.
The DS-1904’s were signed and approved by Clarence N. Finney Jr., who was then the director of correspondence and records for the State Department.
Judicial Watch said the records Clinton and her team removed from the State Department included:
Electronic copy of “daily files” – which are word versions of public documents and non-records: speeches/press statements/photos from the website, a non-record copy of the schedule, a non record copy of the call log, press clips, and agenda of daily activities
Electronic copy of a log of calls the Secretary made since 2004, it is a non-record, since her official calls are logged elsewhere (official schedule and official call log)
Electronic copy of the Secretary’s “call grid” which is a running list of calls she wants to make (both personal and official)
16 boxes: Personal Schedules (1993 thru 2008-prior to the Secretary’s tenure at the Department of State.
29 boxes: Miscellaneous Public Schedules during her tenure as FLOTUS and Senator-prior to the Secretary’s tenure at the Department of State
1 box: Personal Reimbursable receipts (6/25/2009 thru 1/14/2013)
1 box: Personal Photos
1 box: Personal schedule (2009-2013)
Two Men Arrested for Planning Terrorist Attack on Trump Tower in Support of ISIS
They’re from South Carolina and Texas.
The FBI has arrested two men and charged them with planning terrorist attacks on locations such as New York’s Trump Tower in support of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.
Kristopher Sean Matthews of South Carolina and Jaylyn Christopher Molina of Texas have been charged with conspiring to provide material support or resources to a designated foreign terrorist organization.
Matthews adopted the pseudonym Ali Jibreel, and Molina the name Abdur Rahim.
The pair allegedly plotted to attack government facilities and New York’s Trump Tower, discussing their plans in jihadist chatrooms. They were busted by federal informants within these honeypots.
“We need to stick together, we need to defeat them, we need to take a lot of casualties,” said Molina of the pair’s plotting. Molina spoke of his allegiance to ISIS in the server. “You are my enemy (America) and never will I wear your flag … but I will raise the black flag of Allah.”
They also spoke of the proposition of traveling to Syria in order to fight for ISIS, an idea that would’ve almost certainly resulted in their quick capture or death. American citizens caught fighting for ISIS on foreign battlefields have proven to be a legal nightmare for American military and civil law to manage.
Both were arrested on Monday. They face a maximum penalty of twenty years in prison, with a lifetime of supervised release.
These clowns didn’t get very far in actually planning acts of violence in support of ISIS, and they seem to have somewhat missed the boat- ISIS has largely been defeated by American-backed Kurdish militias and the Iraqi and Syrian governments. But they deserve punishment nonetheless.
