In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


MSM Suddenly Sees a Witch Hunt When a Democrat — Hillary — Gets Investigated

Look at this. Look how that Washington Post handles a news story about a legitimate investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server to handle State Department business, a practice for which any employee would have been fired and possibly subject to criminal charges.

The article is all about . . . Trump! And how he is persecuting people for political purposes.

Of course, Democrats never launch investigations for political purposes. They are just seeking justice, the rule of law, etc.

From the piece:

The Trump administration is investigating the email records of dozens of current and former senior State Department officials who sent messages to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email, reviving a politically toxic matter that overshadowed the 2016 election, current and former officials said.

As many as 130 officials have been contacted in recent weeks by State Department investigators — a list that includes senior officials who reported directly to Clinton as well as others in lower-level jobs whose emails were at some point relayed to her inbox, said current and former State Department officials. Those targeted were notified that emails they sent years ago have been retroactively classified and now constitute potential security violations, according to letters reviewed by The Washington Post.

Senior State Department officials said that they are following standard protocol in an investigation that began during the latter days of the Obama administration and is nearing completion . . .

To many of those under scrutiny, including some of the Democratic Party’s top foreign policy experts, the recent flurry of activity surrounding the Clinton email case represents a new front on which the Trump administration could be accused of employing the powers of the executive branch against perceived political adversaries.

Are you kidding me? She’s not a political adversary. She’s not running for anything, at least not yet. This is a completely legitimate and even important probe.

It’s simply impossible to trust the reporting by the Washington Post anymore. They used to at least try to check their bias. Now, it’s all on the table, for their friends inside the Beltway to feast on.

  1. Yes and her and Bill’s Clinton Foundation.

    Rudy Giuliani was interviewed by Maria Bartiromo this morning. He asked why is he being investigated. Why isn’t Biden and his son not being investigated?

  2. There’s a story here that isn’t getting much mention. And that is that government employees are and have been flagrantly ignoring protocol and deliberately hiding their communications – and deliberately exposing classified matters to unsecured internet accounts. It IS illegal. It IS Conspiracy. It IS professional negligence. It violates a host of actual statutes not to mention a hundred or more regulations that DO APPLY to these people.

    Recently, Admiral Bill Moran withdrew from his appointment as Commander of the Navy, due to his use of a gmail account for official business, in direct violation of policy, from at least Dec 2016 through June 2019. Gmail stands for Google Mail. Google reads and stores every email sent through its systems – forever. Google deletes nothing, not even emails we delete. They remain on Google’s own internal database.

    And the military people writing about it all thought he had done nothing wrong because, they say, they do it too. Why? If for no other reason, because it’s “too much trouble” to use VPN to connect to their dot mil servers if they are outside the office. So they follow Colin Powell’s and Condoleza Rice’s and Hillary Clinton’s examples, and use insecure easily hacked “free”
    email accounts through commercial internet accounts that by definition have zero expectation of privacy from the service provider or anyone the service provider chooses to open the door for.

    Washington Post reported in 2016 that General Colin Powell “used a personal computer attached to a private phone line to do business with foreign leaders and State Department officials .. “So I could communicate with a wide range of friends directly without it going through the State Department servers,” Powell wrote. “I even used it to do business with some foreign leaders and some of the senior folks in the Department on their personal email accounts. I did the same thing on the road in hotels.”
    ” “If it is public that you have a BlackBerry and it it [sic] government and you are using it, government or not, to do business, it may become an official record and subject to the law,” Powell wrote. He added later: “Be very careful. I got around it all by not saying much and not using systems that captured the data.” (WaPo 9/8/2016)

    The ugly part is, that those communications WERE official records and subject to the law – no matter what means or account was used to transmit them.
    And those communications were, and still are, sitting in severs of these commercial companies, available to anyone who wants access to them.

  3. Anyone with an IQ above room temperature knows that everyone is being watched, monitored by someone else. Every electronic device holds information waiting to be gathered by friends or foes.
    Hiding in a wooden cabin deep in the forest is no longer a secret hideaway because every country with a space program has a device that can zero in to 100ft anywhere.

    Governments that are not our friends can listen to our calls, read what we write, and there’s no stopping it. American hackers have infiltrated the great FBI servers, and there is no commercial server that is safe from the bad guys.
    Government workers who deal in national security should at least try to stay within the protocols set for them and when they choose to ignore the regulations and actual laws, it’s time to investigate their actions.
