Emails recovered from Clinton's private server show massive data theft in 2009, possibly SSNs of every admin official


A newly released email from the State Department shows that Hillary Clinton was informed in April 2009 of a massive theft of data pertaining to former President Bill Clinton’s White House records.

On April 13, 2009, Clinton attorney Cheryl Mills informed newly sworn-in Secretary of State Hillary Clinton via email that the National Archives could not account for a two-terabyte hard drive.

The hard drive contained information from the administration of her husband, former President Bill Clinton.

The email was made public from State Department files on Thursday as part of an ongoing release of recovered emails that had been previously deleted from Clinton’s private server.

The possible data losses were all serious but only three documents were classified. Social Security numbers and birth dates may have been lost to thieves. Political information may have been stolen, too.

"Two terabytes is a very very large amount of data; the drive may contain a wide range of memos, emails, and other electronic documents from the Clinton White House," wrote Blake Roberts, deputy associate White House counsel for President Obama. "All the material is unclassified, except for three documents which Bill Leary has examined and does not believe present any significant risk."

This reminds me of the Sandy Berger episode. What were they trying to hide?

It reminds you of the Sandy Berger episode? You don't say. In what way?
The dems minimized security docs leaving a building as just a mere case of sloppiness.
You know. When the dems do it, it's unintentional. But when a republican does it, it's criminal behavior.

You know, Berger claimed it was a "mistake" and "sloppy." Not that he didn't do it. Just made me think of Hillary's mishandling and destroying Top Secret material, being a "mistake." Just as in the Berger case, we all know he was trying to hide something from getting out. One doesn't fill his pants and socks with secret documents and claim it was a mere oversight.

Billy boy probably told Hillary, claim your destruction of emails and the unsecured server was "just a mistake." IOW, no intent... Like hell there was no intent!

Sandy Berger's Little Mistake

by Bob Wilson

Sandy Berger the former Clinton Administration National Security Advisor, said he made a "mistake" and was just "sloppy" when an FBI investigation revealed that he had stolen Top Secret memos and documents from the National Archives relating to the events surrounding al-Qaida attacks on America during the 1990s and in the year 2000. Archive security notified the FBI when they discovered documents missing, and saw Berger stuffing papers into his pants, socks, and a leather briefcase.

Upon investigation, Berger admitted that he had "made a mistake," and took them. Unfortunately, Berger says he "lost" some of the documents, but that he returned some of them after his the FBI searched his home. Amazingly, he even returned some documents that the Archive hadn't yet noted were missing! He apologized and said he had just been "sloppy." This, from the former "National Security" advisor to the previous President of the United States, and security advisor to the current Democratic candidate for president.

A "mistake" is not a crime in most instances. Theft of Top Secret documents is a Federal crime that is supposed to carry extremely serious consequences. Being "sloppy" isn't a crime. Clinton's affairs might be described as "sloppy." Lying under oath about them IS a crime worthy of impeachment, depending apparently upon one's definition of the word "is." Mr. Burger would have us believe that he was simply unaware of the procedures surrounding the security of Top Secret documents. He says he should have known that stuffing them in his pants and walking out might be a breach of security. For his "mistake" Mr. Berger has resigned as John Kerry's advisor on national security affairs.

The truly amazing fact is that, in the context of political scandals, Watergate pales by comparison! The Watergate scandal that resulted in Nixon resigning from office was essentially trivial in comparison. Nixon was (and still is) vilified for pondering a cover up of a break-in by low level political operatives into the files of a left-wing political supporter of the Democratic presidential nominee. They were looking for evidence of Communist ties to the McGovern campaign, and this transgression lives on as the Democrat's ultimate immortal example of Republican "dirty tricks."

Democrats are defending Mr. Berger by attacking the "timing" of the revelation that he was, ah, "sloppy." They stand behind his contention that he didn't really commit a crime, by stuffing Top Secret material in his pants and removing them from Federal custody. The Democrat spinmasters say that the revelation that Mr. Berger had "mistakenly" stuffed certain documents in his pants relating to how Clinton handled terrorism prior to 9/11 is just Republican trickery and an attempt by Bush to divert American's attention from his failures in the unjust war in Iraq.

So, ultimately it comes down to whether you accept the Democrat's spin that Mr. Berger was just "sloppy" and "mistakenly" stuffed Top Secret documents relating to terrorism threats into his pants prior to the 9/11 Commission investigation, or whether you have at least a minimal grasp of the obvious. With that, you would have to conclude that Sandy Berger attempted to keep information about terrorism, and the previous administration's approach to it, from the American people and the 9/11 Commission. Of course, you "middle-of-the-road" folks might just choose to believe that Sandy Berger was merely gathering material for a book.

Sandy Berger was mentioned at he end of the article you cited. I doubt you could have pulled that name out of your rear end had it not been.

Checking my rear end to see if there's anything else.....

No, I did know about it and you would have, too, if you were around then. The thought of Berger putting documents in this pants and socks was something you don't forget.

But the interesting part is the claim that it was "a mistake" and he really got away with it for that reason. Too close to Hillary's excuse that using her unsecured server was also a mistake.

The Clinton's run a an organized crime family. It's no surprise that they're stealing Social Security numbers. I wouldn't be surprised that they were behind the hacking that's going on in Washington. The stealing of every federal employee's information that coincidentally happened while Hillary and Obama were running things in Washington.

Why would they want the SSN for previous employees? What advantage would that give them?
