THIS IS BS! How Hillary Clinton PURPOSELY IGNORED Fed Rules for FOUR YEARS at The State Dept!
As part of the Benghazi investigation that so many liberals have been mocking it’s been discovered that Hillary Clinton completely ignored a reporting requirement for emails during her time as State Department Secretary.
Hillary Rodham Clinton exclusively used a personal email account to conduct government business as secretary of state, State Department officials said, and may have violated federal requirements that officials’ correspondence be retained as part of the agency’s record.
Mrs. Clinton did not have a government email address during her four-year tenure at the State Department. Her aides took no actions to have her personal emails preserved on department servers at the time, as required by the Federal Records Act.
It was only two months ago, in response to a new State Department effort to comply with federal record-keeping practices, that Mrs. Clinton’s advisers reviewed tens of thousands of pages of her personal emails and decided which ones to turn over to the State Department. All told, 55,000 pages of emails were given to the department.Mrs. Clinton stepped down from the secretary’s post in early 2013.Her expansive use of the private account was alarming to current and former National Archives and Records Administration officials and government watchdogs, who called it a serious breach.
“It is very difficult to conceive of a scenario — short of nuclear winter — where an agency would be justified in allowing its cabinet-level-head officer to solely use a private email communications channel for the conduct of government business,” said Jason R. Baron, a lawyer at Drinker Biddle and Reath who is a former director of litigation at the National Archives and Records Administration.
A spokesman for Mrs. Clinton, Nick Merrill, defended her use of the personal email account and said she has been complying with the “letter and spirit of the rules.”
Under federal law, however, letters and emails written and received by federal officials, such as the secretary of state, are considered government records and are supposed to be retained so that congressional committees, historians and members of the news media can find them. There are exceptions to the law for certain classified and sensitive materials.
This may not sound like a big deal but it is when you pair it with the fact that the Clinton Foundation is facing a scandal about it receiving foreign money, this makes it much more likely that shady stuff was happening because Hillary would have been able to cover it up much more easily with a private email account!
To add insult to injury, the State Department is now saying they didn’t approve of all gifts to the Foundation, but just the ones submitted!
Now consider this – it’s only been lately that government officials have revealed that they were absolutely confused by Hillary’s insistence that Libya’s Qaddafi be toppled – they could not figure out why Hillary’s State Department seemed to be lying about the ruler in order to help rebels destroy his government. Ya think there just might be some information in those emails that were private about this, and do you think there might be a chance that some of those Middle Eastern governments lining her pockets with cash might have had something to do with this otherwise bewildering event?
This is a load of crap and it’s up to you to let Americans know about it because you can bet that the mainstream media sure as hell won’t.
