From The New York Post.
The FBI is investigating whether members of Hillary Clinton’s inner circle “cut and pasted” material from the government’s classified network so that it could be sent to her private e-mail address, former State Department security officials say.
Clinton and her top aides had access to a Pentagon-run classified network that goes up to the Secret level, as well as a separate system used for Top Secret communications.
The two systems — the Secret Internet Protocol Router Network (SIPRNet) and Joint Worldwide Intelligence Communications System (JWICS) — are not connected to the unclassified system, known as the Non-Classified Internet Protocol Router Network (NIPRNet). You cannot e-mail from one system to the other, though you can use NIPRNet to send e-mails outside the government.
Somehow, highly classified information from SIPRNet, as well as even the super-secure JWICS, jumped from those closed systems to the open system and turned up in at least 1,340 of Clinton’s home e-mails — including several the CIA earlier this month flagged as containing ultra-secret Sensitive Compartmented Information and Special Access Programs, a subset of SCI.
SAP includes “dark projects,” such as drone operations, while SCI protects intelligence sources and methods.
Top aide Huma Abedin sent emails containing classified materials to Hillary, according to intelligence agency reviewers.
Fox News reported Friday that at least one of Clinton’s e-mails included sensitive information on spies.
“It takes a very conscious effort to move a classified e-mail or cable from the classified systems over to the unsecured open system and then send it to Hillary Clinton’s personal e-mail account,” said Raymond Fournier, a veteran Diplomatic Security Service special agent. “That’s no less than a two-conscious-step process.”
FBI agents are zeroing in on three of Clinton’s top department aides. Most of the Clinton e-mails deemed classified by intelligence agency reviewers were sent to her by her chief of staff Cheryl Mills or deputy chiefs Huma Abedin and Jake Sullivan.
In one e-mail, Clinton pressured Sullivan to declassify cabled remarks by a foreign leader.
“Just e-mail it,” Clinton snapped, to which Sullivan replied: “Trust me, I share your exasperation. But until ops converts it to the unclassified e-mail system, there is no physical way for me to e-mail it.”
In another recently released e-mail, Clinton instructed Sullivan to convert a classified document into an unclassified e-mail attachment by scanning it into an unsecured computer and sending it to her without any classified markings. “Turn into nonpaper w no identifying heading and send nonsecure,” she ordered.
Top Secret/SCI e-mails received by Clinton include a 2012 staff e-mail sent to the then-secretary containing investigative data about Benghazi terrorist suspects wanted by the FBI and sourcing a regional security officer. They also include a 2011 message from Clinton’s top aides that contains military intelligence from United States Africa Command gleaned from satellite images of troop movements in Libya, along with the travel and protection plans for Ambassador Christopher Stevens, who was later killed in a terrorist attack in Benghazi.
“Receiving Top Secret SAP intelligence outside secure channels is a mortal sin,” said Chris Farrell, director of investigations for Judicial Watch, the Washington-based public law firm that has successfully sued State for Clinton’s e-mails.
“A regular government employee would be crucified, and they are, routinely,” added Farrell, who as a former Army counterintelligence agent investigated such violations.
……As a result of Clinton’s negligence, former Defense Secretary Robert Gates said in a recent interview he thinks “the odds are pretty high” that hostile foreign powers like Iran, China and Russia hacked Clinton’s homebrew e-mail server and stole US secrets.
Gawd only knows how much of those highly classified, unsecure emails were either hacked or leaked to the wrong people.
I worked in intel throughout my military career. Safeguarding classified information was part of the job. Any security violation was immediately investigated and depending on the severity of the infraction, the consequences could result in prison time. Hillary has violated every security regulation in the fucking book. She and her staff knew what they were doing was illegal, so they deleted thousands of emails in an attempt to cover their tracks.
When you’re entrusted with classified information, security is pounded into your head. You do not grant access to uncleared personnel. Classified information is to be stored in and transmitted from accredited computers through a secure network to another accredited computer. You do not transmit classified information as unsecured, unclassified emails.
If you’re Hillary Clinton, such things are trivial.
Hillary and her husband Bubba Clinton, have a lengthy history of criminal activity that stretches back to his days as governor of Arkansas.
Hillary Clinton took millions of dollars in foreign ‘donations’ for the Clinton Foundation in exchange for political favors while she was Secretary of State. Last I checked, that’s an offense punishable by prison time. If she were a Republican, the leftwing drive-by media would be having grand mal seizures. Don’t expect the DOJ, who has its own share of corruption, to prosecute Hillary for using her office to take bribes.
So, the FBI is investigating. Good luck with that shit.
