i'm trying to get thru one clinton scandal per day, but i'm falling behind... i was just listening to the peter paul stan lee controversy, which i had never even heard of till yesterday... . i'm trying to figure what kind of an ego these people have that allows them to just keep going, as if nothing has ever happened in their past. we Americans have short memories or piss poor expectations... anyway, this is new and pending.


State Department says halts review of Clinton emails at FBI request


By Arshad Mohammed

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. State Department has suspended plans for an internal review of whether classified information was properly handled in former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's emails at the request of the FBI, a spokeswoman said on Friday.

Clinton, the front-runner in the race for the Democratic Party nomination in the Nov. 8 presidential election, has apologized for using a private email server for official business while in office from 2009 to 2013 and said she did nothing wrong. The Federal Bureau of Investigation is probing the arrangement.

On Jan. 29, the State Department said 22 emails sent or received by Clinton had been upgraded to top secret at the request U.S. intelligence agencies and would not be made public as part of the release of thousands of Clinton's emails. It said that none of the emails was marked classified when sent.

At the time, the department also said it would conduct an internal review on whether the information in the emails was classified at the time it passed through Clinton's private clintonemail.com account run on a server in her New York home.

The State Department consulted the FBI about this in February, and in March the law enforcement agency asked the State Department to halt its inquiry.

"The FBI communicated to us that we should follow our standard practice, which is to put our internal review on hold while there is an ongoing law enforcement investigation ," State Department spokeswoman Elizabeth Trudeau told reporters.

"The internal review is on hold, pending completion of the FBI's work," she added." We'll reassess next steps after the FBI's work is complete."

A U.S. State Department official who spoke on condition of anonymity said the State Department had really only done "administrative work" on its review but had held off while waiting for a response from the FBI.

"It took a little bit of time for the FBI to respond to our request for advice and in the interim we did not pursue the review out of prudence," said the official, who declined further comment on the State Department review.

The government forbids handling of classified information, which may or may not be marked that way, outside secure government-controlled channels, and sometimes prosecutes people who remove it from such channels. The government classifies information as top secret if it deems a leak could cause "exceptionally grave damage" to national security.

Two judges have allowed a group suing for Clinton's records to seek sworn testimony from officials. On Tuesday, one judge said there was "evidence of government wrongdoing and bad faith" over the arrangement.

So the supposed 'crime' would be "improper handling' of classified information? I don't believe that would rise to the level of being considered as criminal.

"The U.S. State Department has suspended plans for an internal review of whether classified information was properly handled in former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's emails"

On the basic level, this is relatively routine. During the pendency of a criminal investigation, parallel civil investigations (like the State Department’s) are often halted or stayed. The criminal investigation has preeminence, and a civil investigation would get in the way. This is standard, and does not say anything specific or significant about the nature of the criminal investigation. -- The State Department Halts A Potentially Vindicating Review of Hillary Clinton Emails

what's an op ed contributor ?? i don't think it should be high crimes and misdemeanors...
the benghazi cover up is though. i mean, how much longer can she go ??

bernie was smart to get in, i think he's surprised by his own destiny and rise to pop star status, like obamavich.

hillary, on the other hand is rife with scandal, and not a smidgen of charisma.

even if she was elected, this never goes away till she does.

too cryptic for me. i think the fbi is setting the stage to let her off the hook. what difference would it make. constitutional law is becoming socialist and obsolete.

too bad, the founding fathers and mothers had such great ideas. but no democracy has ever existed this long on this magnificent a scale.

we're even back in a cold war again, winter comes and goes. the climate changes, everyone agrees on that. :cool:

Contrary to popular delusion, the USA is NOT a democracy.

I suggest you bone up on your law:



18 U.S. Code § 798 - Disclosure of classified information


If this bitch isn't guilty - then Bob's your uncle.
The Secretary has certain authority to discuss information. Keep reaching for the stars.


Looks as though you're good at spreading bullshit.
Looks like you are pretty good at it too. :bow2:


I provide United States Law - and you claim that she has the "certain authority" to "discuss" classified information (which she does not - unless with individuals with proper Security Clearances). Apparently you know nothing about US law - and in particular, compartmentalized sensitive information. Before you claim things that simply are NOT true - put your pseudo-intellectual mind to work and ask yourself this question: Who the hell said anything whatsoever about "discussing" classified information? No one. It's about receiving classified information on a non-secure server - an act which clearly violates the above mentioned US Code.

So again - read the LAW.

It is elevated to the level of a "crime" because it's a felony.

Another felony was committed when she lied, under oath, to Congress.

When she sits down for her interview with the FBI and lies to them, that will be another felony.

And, about the FBI interview? The FBI doesn't interview someone because they think that person is innocent.

Who else but the Democrats can run a candidate currently the subject of an ongoing FBI investigation?

I know it's tough for some people to grasp, depending on what media bubble they exists in, to deal with realities on the ground. But whether you know it or not, there has been no investigation of the Secretary. The investigation has been on the set up of the server, and how it relates to information contained in the emails. To date, there has been NO criminal investigation of former Secretary Clinton. I doubt there will ever be one, regardless of the spin.

The laws as they apply to dept heads in the executive branch may be beyond your understanding

Let's make no mistake about it, Hillary will not receive the punishment that General Patreaus received. She will be lucky if she gets a small "slap on the wrist" for breaking the law. She has proven time and time again, since she first reared her ugly head in Washington, that she can flaunt the law (along with her misogynist husband) and never have to answer for it.

Or as her hippie, liberal supporters often scream - "It's HILLARY!!!! It's her time" - and the law be damned.

You can claim whatever you want, but the reality is NO crime, felony or otherwise has been committed (as far as we know). No charges have been filed. Congress has not claimed a crime was committed, not officially. Individuals in the Congress may feed nonsense to people like you, but that does not make it any more true.

Actually, the FBI interviews innocent people all the time. It is how they gather information.

You appear to be a little it demented
