Federal Judge ‘Shocked’ to Find Obama State Dept Lied To Protect Hillary From Email Server Lawsuits

Shocked? He must not have paid attention.

From Zerohedge

The noose appears to be tightening further around the law-less behaviors of the Obama administration in their frantic efforts to protect former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton from lawsuits seeking information about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email server and her handling of the 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

As Fox News reports, the transparency group Judicial Watch initially sued the State Department in 2014, seeking information about the response to the Benghazi attack after the government didn’t respond to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request. Other parallel lawsuits by Judicial Watch are probing issues like Clinton’s server, whose existence was revealed during the course of the litigation.

The State Department had immediately moved to dismiss Judicial Watch’s first lawsuit, but U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth (who was appointed to the bench by President Ronald Reagan) denied the request to dismiss the lawsuit at the time, and on Friday, he said he was happy he did, charging that State Department officials had intentionally misled him because other key documents, including those on Clinton’s email server, had not in fact been produced.

“It was clear to me that at the time that I ruled initially, that false statements were made to me by career State Department officials, and it became more clear through discovery that the information that I was provided was clearly false regarding the adequacy of the search and this – what we now know turned out to be the Secretary’s email system.”

“I don’t know the details of what kind of IG inquiry there was into why these career officials at the State Department would have filed false affidavits with me. I don’t know the details of why the Justice Department lawyers did not know false affidavits were being filed with me, but I was very relieved that I did not accept them and that I allowed limited discovery into what had happened.”

In a somewhat stunningly frank exchange with Justice Department lawyer Robert Prince, the judge pressed the issue, accusing Prince of using “doublespeak” and “playing the same word games [Clinton] played.”

That “was not true,” the judge said, referring to the State Department’s assurances in a sworn declaration that it had searched all relevant documents.

“It was a lie.”

Additionally,  Fox notes that Judge Lamberth said he was “shocked” and “dumbfounded” when he learned that FBI had granted immunity to former Clinton chief of staff Cheryl Mills during its investigation into the use of Clinton’s server, according to a court transcript of his remarks.

“I had myself found that Cheryl Mills had committed perjury and lied under oath in a published opinion I had issued in a Judicial Watch case where I found her unworthy of belief, and I was quite shocked to find out she had been given immunity in — by the Justice Department in the Hillary Clinton email case.”

On Friday, Lamberth said he did not know Mills had been granted immunity until he “read the IG report and learned that and that she had accompanied [Clinton] to her interview.”

 

Comey not only gave immunity to Clinton’s aides , but he destroyed their laptops, which contained evidence related to the investigation.  Obama’s FBI and DOJ were complicit in the entire cover up.

DOJ Documents: Further Proof That Comey Lied to FISA Court and Used Fake Dossier to Target Trump, Contradicts Strzok’s Denials That He Had Nothing to do With FISA Warrant

 

DOJ/FBI lied to the FISA court that a Yahoo News article corroborated Steele’s dossier, then swore that Steele was not the source of that article (he was). That was redacted, but Grassley quoted from it in his Steele criminal referral.

For Those Who Doubt the Deep State Collusion in the 2016 Election: Treasury Leaker had ‘Co-Conspirator’ in Plot Against Trump Officials

From Fox News

 

The Treasury Department employee charged Wednesday with leaking confidential financial files related to former Trump associates had a “co-conspirator” at the department who also exchanged several-hundred messages with a journalist, according to the criminal complaint.

The court papers do not name the higher-ranking “co-conspirator,” who has not been charged. But the complaint referred to the person as an “associate director” at the department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) to whom defendant Natalie Mayflower Sours Edwards reported.

The complaint states that this “co-conspirator not named as a defendant” exchanged more than 300 messages with a reporter through an “encrypted application.”

A spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Southern District of New York – which brought the case against Edwards – declined to comment on the person referred to in the court papers, saying prosecutors “cannot comment outside of the person named in the complaint.”

The Washington Post cited sources in reporting the name of the person accused of being the “co-conspirator.”

That person could be reached for comment from Fox News on Thursday. A spokesman for FinCEN declined to comment.

Edwards, 40, a senior official at FinCEN, is accused of illegally giving a reporter bank reports documenting several suspicious financial transactions, known as Suspicious Activity Reports (“SARs”), from October 2017 to the present.

The documents said Edwards “initially” denied having contact with members of the media, though told the FBI she was aware that the unnamed person – as well as another FinCEN employee – had communicated with the news media.

The financial transactions involved Trump campaign chief Paul Manafort, campaign official Richard Gates, accused Russian agent Maria Butina and the Russian Embassy, federal law enforcement officials said Wednesday.

Edwards’ dramatic arrest late Tuesday came on the heels of other high-profile, leak-related prosecutions under the Trump administration, which has pledged to go on the offensive against leakers that the president has called “traitors and cowards.”

Prosecutors said Edwards saved thousands of SARs, “along with thousands of other files containing sensitive government information,” to a government-provided flash drive.

She transmitted the SARs to the reporter by “taking photographs of them and texting the photographs” using an encrypted application, according to charging documents, which said Edwards eventually confessed to doing so. FBI agents obtained a pen register and trap and trace order for Edwards’ cellphone during their investigation.

The files were allegedly saved to a folder on the flash drive with the file path “Debacle\Emails\Asshat.”

“Edwards is not known to be involved in any official FinCEN project or task bearing these file titles or code names,” federal authorities said.

The flash drive contained not only SARs, but also “highly sensitive material relating to Russia, Iran, and the terrorist group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant,” prosecutors said.

 

A search of the FinCEN site lists Thomas Ott as Associate Director for its Enforcement Division.

Another possibility is Andrea Sharrin, Associate Director, Policy Division, Financial Crimes Enforcement Network.

And Stephanie Brooks, Associate Director of enforcement, Financial Crimes Enforcement Network.

The leftwing Deep State really didn’t believe Trump would win the election. As an ‘insurance policy‘ during the campaign, the FBI, James Comey, the Hillary campaign, a reprobate former MI6 agent, and the Obama regime all had a hand in producing and paying for a lurid, fabricated dossier which was then used to secure a warrant from the FISA court under fraudulent claims, to spy on the Trump campaign.

Former MI6 operative, Christopher Steele, was hired by Fusion GPS, a corporate espionage firm, to dig up dirt on Trump but came up with a fabricated smear instead. Not deterred by the total implausibility of the story described in the dossier, GPS shopped the dossier to the liberal media and paid journos to feed the fake story to the press with predictable results; the left wing morons at Buzzfeed and  CNN  jumped at the chance to print the fake news.  The FBI even offered $50,000 to Steele for information.

The Obama regime paid almost one million dollars to the same law firm that funneled money to GPS.  Somewhere in that mess is RINO John McCain,  who received the dossier from a former British ambassador to Moscow.

The Mueller clusterfuck is two fold: The fake dossier was tried and failed, then they used the planted story about the Trump campaign having inside knowledge of the Russians possessing Hillary’s emails.  They also inserted a mole into the Trump campaign.

Obama  weaponized government agencies. to subvert and disrupt the election process.

Hillary Finally Loses Security Clearance

Her clearance should have been yanked a long time ago.

Via The Washington Times

Hillary Clinton has given up her security clearance in the wake of the scandal over her handling of secret information on her email server, the Senate Judiciary Committee revealed Friday.

Chairman Charles E. Grassley also revealed top Clinton aide Cheryl Mills and four others no longer have clearance.

Mrs. Clinton’s clearance expired at the end of August. The others lost their access privileges in September.

The State Department, in a letter to Mr. Grassley, had said Mrs. Clinton and her aides retained clearance in order to conduct research after she left office.

The names of the four additional aides besides Ms. Mills were redacted from the State Department letter that the committee released.

“Research”; like collusion with Fusion GPS? Which, as discussed by Conservative Treehouse, is likely the case.

Hillary deliberately used an illegal, unsecure server to store and transmit classified information, tampered with evidence, deleted incriminating emails, and lied before Congress. It’s right in front of everyone’s face.  She knew that it was a national security violation, but did it anyway.

Her malfeasance with regard to classified information cost lives. Thanks to  Comey’s corruption,she was never indicted.

I’m *Shocked*: Soros Funded Fusion GPS

Via The Daily Caller

George Soros has indirectly funded Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm behind the infamous Steele dossier, a spokesman for the billionaire financier has acknowledged.

Michael Vachon, the Soros aide, told Washington Post columnist David Ignatius that Soros provided a grant to a nonprofit group called the Democracy Integrity Project.

That organization, which was formed in 2017 by Daniel Jones, a former Senate Intelligence Committee staffer for Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, paid Fusion GPS as a contractor to continue an investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

The Post column confirms what a Washington, D.C., lawyer named Adam Waldman told The Daily Caller News Foundation about a conversation he had with Jones in March 2017.

Waldman was an attorney for Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska. He also worked in some capacity for Christopher Steele, according to text messages he exchanged with Virginia Sen. Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence panel.

In what the Post’s Ignatius noted was an “incestuous” relationship, Steele, a former MI6 officer, has done work for the Kremlin-linked Deripaska in the past.

Waldman told TheDCNF that Jones approached him on March 15, 2017 through text message asking to meet.

“Dan Jones here from the Democracy Integrity Project. Chris wanted us to connect,” he wrote, seemingly referring to Steele. At a meeting two days later, Waldman said that Jones told him that he was working with Steele and Fusion GPS and that their project was being funded by Soros and a group of Silicon Valley billionaires.

Jones told the FBI in interviews in March 2017 that his organization was paid around $50 million by a group of billionaires to conduct the investigation.

 

Former MI6 operative, Christopher Steele, was hired by Fusion GPS, a corporate espionage firm, to dig up dirt on Trump but came up with a fabricated smear instead. Not deterred by the total implausibility of the story described in the dossier, GPS shopped the dossier to the liberal media and paid journos to feed the fake story to the press with predictable results; the left wing morons at Buzzfeed and  CNN  jumped at the chance to print the fake news.  The FBI even offered $50,000 to Steele for information.

The Obama regime paid almost one million dollars to the same law firm that funneled money to GPS.

Somewhere in that clusterfuck was RINO John McCain,  who received the dossier from a former British ambassador to Moscow.

A fake dossier paid for by one political party and its candidate, was used by the government to spy on that candidate’s opponent.  And socialist George Soros, who also hires protesters, chipped in a few bucks as well.

The Dems are ass deep in this conspiracy. Every single one of them, from Obama on down, should be hauled in front of Congress and charged with sedition.
