Bored Grandma Who Wants Access To Nations Highest Secrets Is Totally Reliant On Others

The release of the FBI notes from Hillary Clinton’s interview paints a picture of a woman utterly unqualified to hold a security clearance. She was entirely too casual with all levels of classified material. She consistently lost her Blackberry, which she wasn’t supposed to be using in the first place, and which contained classified information. She was grossly negligent in her handling of the information. Then there’s this, which somehow slipped through the far left editors at Politico

Hillary Clinton never received training on how to handle classified information. By her own admission, she had little ability to discern whether a document included sensitive information. And when she did handle sensitive materials, she relied on her subordinates to ensure that nothing important was compromised.

Taken together, her responses to questions from FBI investigators reveal a high-level government executive who apparently had little grasp of the nuances and complexities around the nation’s classification system — a blind spot that helped allow classified communications to pass through her private email server.

One major problem which really hasn’t been discussed is that those subordinates would have not had the security clearances to view, discuss, or even make judgments on the material. Just because they worked for Hillary did not mean they would have the appropriate clearances. Even her top top people would not have those clearances, because they were not the Secretary of State, a cabinet level official. If she was sharing it with them, if they had access to it, they were all in violation of national security regulations. Hillary had zero latitude to unilaterally decide to share it nor let them view it.

That’s called “gross negligence”, which should have put her and her employees in jail. At an utter minumum, they all should have lost the ability to obtain any level of security clearance.

But, hey, it’s wonderful that Hillary, who aspires to be president, did not bother to (supposedly) take the security briefings on how to handle national security material, and apparently doesn’t have the mental aptitude to understand national security markings.

“Clinton did not recall receiving any emails she thought should not be on an unclassified system,” the FBI’s report on Clinton’s interview states. “She relied on State officials to use their judgment when emailing her and could not recall anyone raising concerns with her regarding the sensitivity of the information she received at her email address.”

Except, she received a lot of them. Ones that should never have left the State Dept’s classified material email system. Ones that shouldn’t have been discussed in email to start with. She was the boss, though, and set the standard, which was that she just didn’t give a damn, and didn’t have the time to care whether it was classified in the least.

At several points during her interview with the FBI, Clinton said she relied on the judgment of other government officials when it came to the handling of classified information. When reviewing an email from October of 2012, for example, Clinton said that while she did not recall the message specifically, she described an individual involved with the communication as “someone who was well acquainted with handling classified information” and “described him as someone she held in high regard.”

She said she “relied on” the individual, whose name is redacted in the FBI notes, and she had “no concern over his judgement and ability to handle classified information.”

It boggles the mind that she takes classified material handling so casually. This was a major part of her job, not one which could be passed off to others. She was the boss. Now she wants to be president.

If Trump and Republicans do not bring this lack of caring, this gross negligence, this inability to be in charge up from now till election day, they don’t deserve to win. Trump needs to find a way to bring this up again and again during the debates.

    She literally should be in prison along with 2/3rds of her staff for not only gross negligence but for the sheer arrogance she displays for anyone who would dare question the next president of the USA…..She makes Tricky Dick look like a choir boy.

    However I would think that many of her staffers most likely had security clearances and if they didn’t.

    What difference does it make……she is after ALL an Elitist who wines and dines the nations movers and shakers….the Billionaires that the left rails against….

    Those rich and powerful that only the GOP seem to care about……

    LOLOLOLOL…….TO DUMB TO PROSECUTE.

    I was 19 and had no concept of what that even meant.

    I should clarify….I was 19 and had a top secret security clearance for 1 day as we were sent to guard General Westmorelands compound in Vietnam.

    But this is what really caught my eye of late.

    During an October 2015 Democratic debate, Clinton argued that Snowden should be “facing the music” for revealing NSA secrets.

    “He broke the laws of the United States. He could have been a whistle-blower,” Clinton argued. “He could have gotten all of the protections of being a whistle-blower. He could have raised all the issues that he has raised. And I think there would have been a positive response to that.”

    In reality, Snowden, who did raise concerns internally over domestic surveillance, was a contractor for Booze Allen Hamilton, not an official NSA employee, making him ineligible for whistleblower protections.

    Again another example of a woman who really is clueless. I mean after all Snowden is the biggest story to hit the Government in Decades and Clinton doesnt even have all the facts….

    TOO DUMB TO PROSECUTE.

    All your Sturm and Drang about President-to-be Clinton would be useful if you hadn’t picked someone TOO DUMB TO NOMINATE.

    Can you believe you were so incredibly stupid to nominate Trump? Any other nominee, save Cruz, would have beaten Clinton in a landslide. And Cruz would have had a shot to win.

    If you had been thoughtful about stopping Clinton you would have nominated a real candidate instead of exercising your self-indulgence. Republicans have no one to blame but themselves for President Clinton.

  4. Dana says:

    At some point, it has to be asked: just who were the cleared officials who sent classified material to her, knowing that they were sending such out of the State Department — and other departments’ — email system to a private server? Weren’t the officials doing this breaking the law?

  5. If you had been thoughtful about stopping Clinton you would have nominated a real candidate instead of exercising your self-indulgence. Republicans have no one to blame but themselves for President Clinton.

    Hey, don’t blame me, I said from the getgo that he would probably lose what should have been an easy election. It should be Dems saying “what the hell were we thinking when we nominated Hillary?” Of course, the Dem insiders did all they could from the start to thwart the will of Dem voters by almost rigging the system.

    Rubio, Cruz, Bush, all would have done much better. The best choice would have been Scott Walker, IMO.

    Regardless, Jeff, you guys are standing behind someone who you would be having marches demanding she be put in jail if she had an (R) next to her name. There would be furious opinion pieces and editorials demanding a special prosecutor at this point. You can’t honestly tell me I’m wrong.

    “The FBI saw massive document destruction and clear intent to withhold material evidence,” he added, “and they just ignored that obstruction, and even let her sit in on the interview.”

    And that Mr. Teach, is why I have no respect for today’s democrats. If they really were for truth and compassion and social justice they would be even harder on their own when they pull this crap. Instead they cover for them.

    There would be furious opinion pieces and editorials demanding a special prosecutor at this point.

    Unfortunately, when the very people we depend on to writ those “furious opinion pieces” are leftists in the pocket of people like Hillary! we can no longer rely on the Fourth Estate for truth or objectivity. Hell, they all go to dinner parties together. They can’t write something bad about Hillary! when they are in the bag for….Hillary!.

    You can’t honestly tell me I’m wrong.

    Again, being a leftist, which like islam is both a religion and a political party, it is impossible for Jeff to say the truth unless it hurts his opponent. We’ve all stated how much an idiot, fool, liar and fake Trump is but we’re kinda stuck with him because we think Hillary! is worse. Leftist can’t admit what a liar and money grubbing thief Hillary! is because that would shatter those rose colored lenses in the bright red commie frames.

  8. Liam Thomas says:

    The latest weekly Rasmussen Reports White House Watch national telephone and online survey shows Trump with 40% support to Clinton’s 39% among Likely U.S. Voters, after Clinton led 42% to 38% a week ago.

    Gallup:

    General Election: Trump vs. Clinton LA Times/USC Clinton 42, Trump 45 Trump +3

    General Election: Trump vs. Clinton vs. Johnson vs. Stein IBD/TIPP Clinton 39, Trump 39, Johnson 12, Stein 3 Tie

    Ohio: Trump vs. Clinton vs. Johnson vs. Stein Emerson Clinton 43, Trump 43, Johnson 10, Stein 2 Tie

    So I wonder if Clinton and the Democrats still want to get rid of the electoral college which will give Hillary the White House?

    I challenge the fact that Rubio, Cruz or Bush would have been a better candidate than Trump. Rubio is just a robot set in motion by his big money donors and has very little depth to his character, he would have been dog meat for the Clintons. Cruz is a nut job and showed his true colors after the nomination process. The guy is totally repugnant to me and is a false Christian, just using those colors to get ahead. As to Bush, my God, we have had enough Bushes and they are not one bit conservative, their background is Connecticut and they are every bit Yankee in their thought process and actions. Bush would have been Hillary lite and would have had the same policies as Obama.

    Now, what is wrong with Trump? Most of what you guys have gone on about is pure media propaganda and you are having your minds warped with the constant crap from the media, even FOX is in on it with constant little negatives about the guy being thrown in at odd moments. I was just watching the Journal addition on fox and they found criticism with the guy over his ground game, especially in Florida. Give me a break, if you don’t follow the script exactly and spend tons of money on the networks, then they think you are incompetent. I found Trump a bit of a stretch until one of the debates when Carson was left standing in limbo as he did not hear his name called. When Cruz came out, he pushed the guy out of the way. Trump, not knowing that a camera was on them came out and stood with Carson and talked to him, in essence, acting like a human being. That got my vote and support.

    Now, the opposite is Hillary. She is a definite pathologic liar. She can’t say a thing that is truthful or that can not be interpreted in another manner. She is a crooked as a snake and very open about how crooked she is. Her actions should be in court, but thanks to the corrupt Obama administration, such things are impossible. In addition, even a glance at her record as head of state shows that she is totally incompetent. Also, her health disqualifies her. If she can’t remember as much as the FBI chronicled, then she has serious issues. But, we all know that she likely could remember, just lying again. The fact that there are people in the US that would vote for such a person is depressing and shows the ruin of our country.

  10. Jeffery says:

    Trump (R) is more corrupt and there are no marches demanding HE be put in jail, are there?

  11. Jeffery says:

    Crooked Donald owes hundred of millions to the Chinese government and Goldman Sachs. He has financial ties with the Russian oligarchs and it was revealed today the Saudi royals. But Hillary gave speeches!

    Osama bin laden’s brother used to rent an apartment from Crooked Donald in Trump Tower in NYC. Later Osama’s troops fly planes into the World Trade Center. But Hillary had e-mails!

    No wonder he’s hiding his tax returns.

  12. Jeffery says:

    Crooked Donald pays a fine for violating political donor laws:

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-politics/wp/2016/09/01/trump-pays-irs-a-penalty-for-his-foundation-violating-rules-with-gift-to-florida-attorney-general/

    The Trump Foundation made a payment to the FL AG just before she ruled not to join the lawsuit against Trump “University”.

    Big media story? Nope. Why? Crooked Donald is graded on a curve. He could shoot someone on 5th Avenue and still not be as vile as the vile Clinton, whom the media hates.

  13. Jeffery says:

    Remember 2000? One candidate was prepared and knowledgeable but was said to have claimed to have “invented the internet”, and George W. Bush was a fine fellow you’d want to have a beer with. This was the media legacy of 2000. Bush lied about his tax policy and once elected lied about Iraq, and the rest is history.

    This year, Trump is portrayed as a man of the people, a shrewd businessman, if a bit of a buffoon, but a harmless buffoon. Donald is “flexible” with his “softening-unsoftening” immigration policy not a flip-flopper. According to the media, the former US Senator, former Sec of State Clinton is not to be trusted, her every vile move scrutinized – the vile, crooked corrupt Clinton. She had a meeting with a longtime friend and Nobel Peace prize recipient, who donated to the Clinton Foundation – vile. The Trump Foundation paid off an attorney general to not investigate Trump U – meh.

  14. Jeffery says:

    Teach:

    Republicans nominated Donald Trump, a former TV reality show front man, absolutely unfit to be President. He is loved by Big Media.

    The Dems nominated Hillary Clinton, a former two-term US Senator and former US Secretary of State, absolutely fit to be President. She IS very unpopular with Big Media, and distrusted by many Americans, and has been for the last 25 years.

    Sec Clinton might not be the most electable of potential Dem candidates, but she is fit to be President. Trump is not.

  15. Jeffery says:

    Proven racist Crooked Donald is not interested in Black voters, he’s interested in less racist white voters (the typical Repub voter), while trying not to offend his deeply racist base.

    Will Crooked Donald take part in the Presidential debates or will he run?

    Will he be open and honest to the voters and release his tax returns? LOL

  16. david7134 says:

    Viewing the nauseating hate and misconstruction coming from Jeff, it is clear that Trump has struck a cord and likely winning. I will be fun to watch Jeff explode if Trump wins.

  17. Jeffery says:

    dave,

    The truth about Crooked Crazy Donnie hurts doesn’t it?

    If Trump wins he’ll be impeached and convicted within a year. The GOP will see to that and the Dems will support them.

    Mike Pence is another thoughtless conservative but he’s not crazy like Crooked Crazy Donnie. Senate Dems will keep Pence from doing too much damage to America. It just puts off repairing Republican damages for another 4 years.

    It’s very unlikely that Crooked Crazy Little Donnie is winning or will win, at least according to facts and evidence, but Repubs were delusional about Romney’s chances up until the results were in. Repubs and conservatives don’t deal with reality very well.

    Much of what conservatives believe to be true is actually false.

  18. Jeffery says:

    dave,

    The national security apparatus is investigating Crooked Donald’s Russian patrons.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/intelligence-community-investigating-covert-russian-influence-operations-in-the-united-states/2016/09/04/aec27fa0-7156-11e6-8533-6b0b0ded0253_story.html

    The question is how involved is Crooked Donald’s campaign in this?

  19. david7134 says:

    Jeff,
    Just to remind you, Hillary is a liar (proven in everything she says), she is crooked, corrupt, and now incompetent. Hillary is very ill and I find it amazing that the Dems continue to support her as her illness makes her a definitely danger to the country. But, keep posting your comments, I find them amusing and it reflects your desperation. Why you can’t accept a good moderate like Trump is beyond comprehension. You do realize that the communist take over will occur in fits and starts and is not guaranteed to be a given with each election. Take a trip to Arkansas or anywhere in the area and ask about Hillary and Bill. You will find much more disgust with these two than reflected in the MSM.

    The New York Daily News, this past weekend, found that Donald Trump’s been doing a lot of big deals with the Saudi government, putting a lot of money into his pocket.

    We know that the Trump Organization makes a lot of money off its resorts in Dubai and Panama, and has big deals going on in Turkey, Bali, and the Philippines.

    We know that Donald Trump, Jr. said, “Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets. We see a lot of money pouring in from Russia.”

    Isn’t it time for The Donald and his family to dissociate themselves from the Trump Organization? The monies from foreign gov’ts go directly in The Donald’s pocket (we won’t know how much until he stops hiding his tax returns).

    George W. Bush is not speaking out against Trump because President Trump would make Bush the 2nd Worst President in modern history, LOL.

  22. Jeffery says:

    Why you can’t accept a good moderate like Trump is beyond comprehension.

    He’s dishonest, corrupt, supports damaging policies, has the attention span of 3 yr old, is paid by the Russians and Saudis, owes hundreds of millions of USD to China and Goldman Sachs, is hiding his tax returns, is a hate-filled racist, is an Islamophobe (or uses Islamophobia as a tool to recruit white supremacists such as you), accused President Obama of not being an American, bribed the Fla attorney general, bilked students of Trump “University”, cheated on two of his 3 wives, is defending himself against a rape lawsuit, looks like and oompa-loompa, is laughed at by the rest of the world and 50% of Americans, flip flops on immigration like a catfish in the bottom of jon boat, said he’d like to screw his daughter if she weren’t his daughter, he wants to cut taxes on the wealthy and corporations, he wants to build a wall and stupidly claims the Mexicans will pay for it and on and on
