Uh-Oh: What Was Just Discovered Utterly Annihilates One Of Hillary’s Key Claims

The State Department confirmed on Thursday that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton did not turn over all her work-related emails, as she has claimed.

This revelation came following the release of 179 pages of emails on Monday by the Select Committee on Benghazi. Among those emails were 120 pages of emails produced by Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal in response to the committee’s request.

“The officials said Julia Frifield, the assistant secretary of state for legislative affairs, confirmed that nine emails and parts of six others that the committee made public Monday couldn’t be located in the department’s records,” according to the Associated Press.

When asked about the discrepancy, Nick Merrill, a Clinton campaign spokesman, did not answer the question, saying the former Secretary “has turned over 55,000 pages of materials to the State Department, including all emails in her possession from Mr. Blumenthal.”

“The revelation these messages were not originally produced to the State Department by Clinton is significant and troubling,” committee chairman Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., said in a statement. “This has implications far beyond Libya, Benghazi and our committee’s work. This conclusively shows her email arrangement with herself, which was then vetted by her own lawyers, has resulted in an incomplete public record.”

Gowdy added that the news “raises serious questions about her decision to erase her personal server — especially before it could be analyzed by an independent, neutral third party arbiter.”

When Clinton addressed the issue of the use of her personal email at a press conference at the U.N. in March, she said emphatically: “I provided all my emails that could possibly be work-related, which totaled roughly 55,000 printed pages.”

She further explained that her team of lawyers “went through a thorough process to identify all my work-related emails, and deliver them to the State Department. At the end, I chose to keep my private, personal emails….”

The Daily Caller reports:

The revelation is not the first time Clinton has been found to have made false statements about her emails. When it was revealed that she received the intelligence reports from Blumenthal, Clinton downplayed the news saying that the correspondence was “unsolicited.”

Yet a close look at the emails Blumenthal turned over last week showed that Clinton actively encouraged Blumenthal to send more intelligence reports. In one exchange with Blumenthal, Clinton asked for “additional info” on a Libya-related issue. In another she asked Blumenthal to send along “any other info.”

In yet another, she wrote: “Thanks for keeping this stuff coming!”

Still, other emails turned over to the Select Committee on Benghazi call into question Clinton’s statement during her U.N. press conference that “I did not email any classified material to anyone on my email. There is no classified material.” The presidential candidate reiterated: “I’m certainly well-aware of the classification requirements and did not send classified material.”

Fox News reports that an email chain between Clinton and high level State Department officials concerning negotiations enforcing a no-fly zone in Libya between Turkey, France, Great Britain, and the United States took place.

“I think the information in the email is clearly classified. If I were engaged in the negotiation on that subject reporting back to Washington, my reporting cable would be classified,”  former UN Ambassador and Fox News contributor John Bolton said after reading the un-redacted emails.

“They’re dealing with the possible U.S. military operation, sensitive negotiations among NATO partners, talking about U.S. objectives and political arrangements and possible objections to the deal from key partners so all of these at secretary of state level is extraordinarily sensitive,” he added.

The New York Times reports: “’I would assume that more than 50 percent of what the secretary of state dealt with was classified,’ said [a] former [senior State Department] official, who would speak only on the condition of anonymity because he did not want to seem ungracious to Mrs. Clinton. ‘Was every single email of the secretary of state completely unclassified? Maybe, but it’s hard to imagine.’”

Watch: One Of Hillary’s Key Claims About Her Emails Just Got Obliterated…By Bill Himself

A whistleblower has come out with startling allegations pertaining to Hillary Clinton’s personal email server. Supposedly key sections of an Inspector General’s report were allegedly removed in order to protect Hillary Clinton politically before she stepped down from her position as secretary of state.

The unnamed whistleblower claims there was corruption at the State Department while Hillary was in charge. The source also claims that sections of the report disappeared just days before it went public, coincidentally around the same time that Clinton stepped down from her position.

Republican lawmakers have requested that the former secretary of state surrender her personal server for examination; in response, she has said she will not. She firmly asserts that her private server contains personal information, including communication between her and her husband.

Bill Clinton has repeatedly said that he does not send emails. He claims to have only sent two his entire life, neither of them to his wife. One was to U.S. troops serving in the Adriatic; the second was to astronaut John Glenn. He explained: “I found people said embarrassing things on emails. I didn’t want to be one of them.” This information directly contradicts what Hillary Clinton said about her server containing personal correspondence between the couple.

Republican lawmakers are concerned about the contents of Clinton’s private server, and there are allegations by the whistleblower that the deleted sections of the IG report contain information directly related to a cover-up of misconduct by her security team.

One of the sections that has allegedly been edited out of the report states: “…a senior ‘7th floor’ department official ordered (diplomatic security) to stop the investigation of an ambassador accused of pedophilia and another such senior official had (diplomatic security) stop an investigation of an ambassador-designate.”

The State Department said that “a review found no evidence of undue influence on diplomatic service investigations”; and “they did a separate review of all these allegations, bringing in some Department of Defense investigators to try to get some independent eyes on it.”

Katie Couric Protects Hillary Clinton’s Benghazi E-mail Mess

Yahoo Global News Anchor Katie Couric’s Now I Get It online news program is routinely featured by Yahoo.com and its affiliates, often appearing on the site’s front page. With more than 460 million daily visitors, Couric’s stories are possibly viewed more now than when she was anchor of the CBS Evening News, which makes it more important than ever that Couric get her facts straight.

In a recent episode titled “Benghazi Controversy Explained,” Couric outlines the Benghazi controversy in a four-minute segment. She hits many of the major points of the controversy surrounding the event, including the sequence of events, National Security Advisor Susan Rice’s CIA talking points, and the reality that the Obama administration got the whole “it’s all because of a YouTube video” nonsense right. She doesn’t condemn President Barack Obama, but Couric shouldn’t be too critical in a truly balanced newscast.

While Couric did provide quite a bit of good information—more than many in the mainstream media have been willing to report—she does conveniently leave out any mention at all of the most recent dimension to the story: Hillary Clinton’s missing e-mails and empty server.

Clinton has come under intense scrutiny since it was revealed that thousands of e-mails Clinton sent, including an untold number relating to the events in Benghazi, mysteriously were deleted from her own private e-mail server, which in and of itself is a scandal since the secretary of state normally uses official government servers when conducting business.

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), the chairman of a House committee investigating Benghazi, says Clinton wiped her server clean, erasing evidence he suspects would have proven her involvement in an attempted Benghazi cover-up.

Since Mrs. Clinton is one of the nation’s leading political figures and has officially announced her candidacy for president, it seems more than a little strange that Couric chose to leave out any mention of the e-mail server scandal. In a television newscast, it could be argued there isn’t enough time to go over all of the sordid details of the potential Benghazi cover-up; but on the Internet, what’s the excuse? Surely Couric could have extended the video by another 60 seconds and, at the very least, mentioned the charges many have made against her.

Instead, Couric chose to ignore the issue entirely, even though there is no disputing the fact that the e-mails are missing or that Clinton used her private server to conduct official State Department business. It’s a tough one to explain, unless of course you go with the simplest solution: Couric deliberately left the details out to protect Mrs. Clinton.

Considering all of the recent criticism of ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos for failing to properly disclose his connection to the Clinton Foundation, you would think Couric would think very carefully when wading into the Benghazi waters. Sadly, I’m sure she did and simply chose to participate in the mainstream media’s circle-the-wagons effort to protect Mrs. Clinton.

At this point, it seems as though there’s absolutely no reason viewers seeking the truth, especially as we enter what’s sure to be a contentious election season, should trust so-called reliable news agencies like ABC, CBS, or NBC, all three of which Couric has worked for in the past.

So, in case you were wondering why many conservatives are so frustrated with the media, maybe now you can say, “Now I get it.”

Bill Clinton Got Huge Payday From Foreign Company That Reportedly Scammed Its Employees

Former president Bill Clinton gave a speech in 2010 to a Singapore-based company with a history of scamming its contractors. The speech was green-lighted by the State Department, who was headed at the time by Bill’s wife, Hillary.

As The Daily Caller reported earlier this week, Mr. Clinton gave a speech in November 2010 to UNI Strategic, which according to their website aims to be a “premier business intelligence provider, producing premium events that addresses the core issues that are vital to the business environment and to forge lasting, mutually beneficial business relationships with our customers.”

The former president had to receive approval from the State Department whenever a potential conflict could arise.

UNI paid Clinton $400,000 to deliver a speech in Taipei, Taiwan, speaking to a crowd of 2,000 about the economy, global warming, and income inequality. While the company was able to pay top dollar to the former commander-in-chief, multiple websites detail the company’s dubious actions.

For example, one site which started in April of 2010 warned that “employees – sales, producers, marketing, operations – you will not get paid your commissions, your pay will be withheld, even when you leave on good terms, or have done your best for the company during your time there.”

The company is headed by 3 people who operate the company without fear of anything happening to them – not even from the authorities. Wing, Roger (CEO), and Stacey.

They are fraudsters, who think they are invincible and can treat everyone like thrash. Just ask the ex-employees about the mistreatment that was dished out to them, and employees that are with the company now. Turnover is sky HIGH.

David Einolf, owner of Oregon-based Endeavour EHS, blasted UNI in a review on his LinkedIn page at the end of last year. “My first training session for them went well, but payment lagged – almost 60 days. The following year I was asked to do several more sessions, which didn’t pan out – couldn’t be sold,” he said. “In April 2014, I was asked to teach a Hazardous Materials Handling course for them in Kuala Lumpur, with payment terms of 60 days following the end of the class.”

The class, which had 8 participants, went well with reasonable instructor reviews. Offering the class took a full week of my time – plus my own costs for books and CDs which I provided to the students. I duly submitted my invoice for services – and I’ve waited.

I’ve been promised payment on this invoice so many times, I can’t count. There’s always an excuse. But, the reality is – UNI has decided that I’m not an important trainer and there’s someone else out there who they can scam – there’s no better word for it.

Einholf told The Caller that he was finally paid after calling UNI for months.

This News Out Of The State Department Is NOT What Hillary Wanted To Hear…

The United States State Department’s inspector general is set to take a further look at former secretary Hillary Clinton’s personal email server that she used during her time in charge at Foggy Bottom.

“In the past, when faced with employees who were using non-governmental email accounts for government business, the OIG questioned such activities,” State inspector general Steven Linick wrote in a response to Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, The Washington Examiner reported.

“The Senate Judiciary Committee, which has direct legislative jurisdiction over FOIA, needs to have a clear understanding of the effects that these email practices at the State Department have had on FOIA compliance,” Grassley wrote to Linick in March.

The non-partisan group Cause of Action filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request earlier this year seeking documents connected to Clinton’s personal email server. Not much was returned when State responded. The Examiner explains from there:

Just six of those were given to Cause of Action in their entirety, with the others being redacted or punted to the State Department for further review. But the few records that the agency did release had nothing to do with the information requested, and were not even produced during Clinton’s time in office.

The documents provided to Cause of Action included a letter from the Republican National Committee to Linick and several others from prominent GOP senators to the inspector general, all expressing concerns with his reluctance to investigate Clinton’s use of a private server.

Undersecretary of State for management Patrick Kennedy issued a memo in February reminding employees of their “overall records management responsibilities, including email, and issued a director to preserve electronically the email of senior officials upon their departure from the Department.”

Kennedy continued: “We are also conducting a detailed study of email management options for the department and investigating the business implications of implementing a Capstone approach for the automatic capture of senior officials’ email.”

Will anything come up in an investigation into Hillary’s emails and policies which led to her using a personal server? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
