The FBI has confirmed they have uncovered nearly 15,000 emails from Hillary Clinton’s private server from her tenure as Secretary of State that were previously undisclosed.
The existence of the emails was confirmed before a federal judge on Monday, during a hearing with the conservative group Judicial Watch who is seeking the release of the emails in a public records lawsuit. The 14,900 new documents equal roughly 50% of what had willingly been turned over to the State Department by Clinton’s lawyers in 2014.
When asked for her emails by the department, Clinton had a team go through them and permanently deleted any that were considered “personal.” They ultimately deleted more emails than they handed over, with no third party or impartial group overseeing the deletions.
The Washington Post has reported that all of the new emails were messages sent directly to or from Clinton herself, not just email chains she was looped in on — as in previous disclosures.
The group is fighting for the emails to be turned over prior to the election in November, but the president of Judicial Watch believes that the State Department is trying to stonewall them and delay the release.
FBI found almost 15,000 new Clinton documents. When will State release them? Court hearing today.
“It looks like the State Department is trying to slow-roll the release of the records. They’ve had them for at least a month, and we still don’t know when we’re going to get them,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton told the Post.
The department claims that they have not yet reviewed the emails to determine if they are new or duplicates of the ones they previously had.
Amazingly, the FBI decided last month not to bring criminal charges against Clinton for her private server — which was seemingly aimed at avoiding transparency and FOIA laws, while putting national security at risk — despite these emails being in government possession and not yet reviewed.
“State has not yet had the opportunity to complete a review of the documents to determine whether they are agency records or if they are duplicative of documents State has already produced through the Freedom of Information Act,” State Department spokesman Mark Toner told USA Today.
US District Judge James Boasberg has ordered that the department provide a status update on their review of the emails by September 23.
Full Disclosure – I am one of many journalists that has received inside information for months that the FBI has multiple joint investigation probes into the Clinton Foundation.
Now, the Daily Caller and WikiLeaks have tipped that investigations between the FBI and the New York State Attorney are working together to prosecute the Clinton Foundation.
A former senior law enforcement official is the official source that the probe will be led by Preet Bharara of the Civil Frauds Unit and Complex Frauds Unit in the Southern District of New York.
There are a number of lucrative deals that the Foundation has made, documented famously in the film Clinton Cash. The Clintons are in for it.
U.S. Attorney General Preet Bharara is known to be harsh on political corrupt figures, previously securing convictions of former New York State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver and Republican Majority Leader Dean Skelos.
So where does the investigation stem from — how did the FBI dodge the Department of Justice’s mandate not to prosecute? The key is Terry McAuliffe, who pledged $2 billion dollars to the Clinton Foundation. The FBI was able to skate around the Department of Justice by probing Terry McAuliffe’s time on the board of the Clinton Global Initiative, which is part of the Clinton Foundation. One major donor to the McAuliffe campaign also pledged $2 million to the Clinton Foundation. So investigators used Terry McAuliffe’s investigation to open a probe into the Clinton Foundation.
There are also several links to the Chinese shared by Terry McAuliffe and the Clintons. Both had a financial relationship with wealthy Chinese donors. Terry McAuliffe invited a Chinese donor to Hillary’s home and a subsequent donation to the Clinton Foundation was made.
Wang Wenliang, a former delegate to China’s legislative body, and the National People’s Congress, and Ng Lap Seng, a wealthy Chinese businessman accused of public corruption by the Chinese government, are both linked to the Clintons.
In 1996, before the U.S. presidential election, Ng Lap Seng was involved in a Congressional probe into how foreign money was funneled into to the Democratic National Committee during the Clinton administration. Although, never convicted in that case, in another case he was accused and indicted on a scheme to bring $4.5 million into the U.S., while also being wanted in China on corruption charges. Those charges caused a revival of the former case against him implicating the Clintons, and he may sing like a canary in court.
An additional red flag raised by following the money
With Julian Assange holding further cards to play at any key moment, with Hillary already publicly dodging charges from the email scandsal, the Clintons have been backed into a corner and we might actually see Hillary and Bill brought out in handcuffs and paraded in front of the media.
The Clintons’ fall could take many other powerful people in the government who have used the Clinton Foundation to get rich with them, which explains the establishment is pulling every dirty trick in the book to try and save Hillary.
“When you look at any foundation, and the Clinton Foundation in particular, you have to check and see what its authorized tax exempt purposes are. Because this entity raises money from the public continuously…they have to be very specific.
Their authorized tax exempt purpose, stated in their application dated 23 December 2007, was just supposed to be a presidential archival research facility in Little Rock. They never have been authorized as far as I can tell from the public filings, they have never been authorized to fight HIV/Aids, fight climate change, convene meetings in New York and set up these various initiatives.
None of them has been validly authorized, which means they have been raising money with materially false and misleading public filings. They have been doing it using the mail, using the Internet and using telephones, all of which is a federal crime.” ~Charles Ortel, to USA Watchdog.
Despite career criminal Hillary Clinton getting a pass from the recent FBI investigation, a massive 94% of people wanted Hillary Clinton indicted according to a recent ABC poll.
Presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton has been under scrutiny for almost a year after it came to light that she used a private email server for her government and personal emails, rather than the State Department’s email system while serving as Secretary of State to President Obama. She recently met with the FBI about an investigation being conducted to decide whether or not to criminally prosecute her for her actions.
Clinton has said relying on a private server was a mistake but that other secretaries of state had also used a personal email address previously.
Wikileaks is planning to publish a massive dump on Hillary’s emails. Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has previously promised to provide enough evidence to indict her. Which may help Judicial Watch to do just that.
Already last week Wikileaks published 1,200+ new emails on Hillary Clinton talking about the Iraq war . Then on Thursday tweeting for users with over 1,000,000 followers to DM them for a preview of what’s to come also taunting the FBI and it’s investigation saying that the FBI didn’t ask them for their information before choosing to not indict Hillary Clinton.
Have more than 1,000,000 followers? Want early access to our pending Hillary Clinton publications? DM @WikiLeaks
Hillary also has the Russian government to worry about which has been floating around the intelligence community that the Russian’s have all of her emails.
Also don’t hold your breathe but, FBI Director James Comey has hinted by not answering the question that there is still possibly an on going investigation into the Clinton Fraudation (Foundation) however after this blatant display of abuse of power I would take this information as a grain of salt.
We will continue to update you on Hillary’s growing nightmare stay tuned to We Are Change this isn’t over many questions remain unanswered and some accountability needs to happen especially for the Clinton Foundation in which Hillary gave countries weapon deals after they donated to the Clinton Foundation that is blatant bribery and a form of political corruption.
“Although we did not find clear evidence that Secretary Clinton or her colleagues intended to violate laws governing the handling of classified information, there is information that they were extremely careless in their handling of information.” ~James Comey
Judicial Watch’s President Tom Fitton had this to say.
“FBI Director James Comey detailed Hillary Clinton’s massive destruction of government records and grossly negligent handling of classified information. Frankly, there’s a disconnect between Comey’s devastating findings and his weak recommendation not to prosecute Hillary Clinton. Federal prosecutors, independent of politics, need to consider whether to pursue the potential violations of law confirmed by the FBI.” ~Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said.
An example of outright negligence is Hillary skipping her security training classes. Please America, do not allow this woman to be our next President – she is either dumber then a box of thumbtacks or more crooked than the Hunchback of Notre Dame. Or both.
As the GOP pointed out today with a new ad campaign, Hillary lied about not sending classified material. Remember, she asked aides to remove classification tags and send the information UN-classified.
Being isolated in prison away from society, friends, and family causes a break down in mental health until you can’t take it anymore. So while Hillary walks away unscathed, Chelsea Manning and others like her are punished for doing the right thing. Chelsea Manning tried to kill herself today.

(ANTIMEDIA) Claire Bernish — Apparently inviolable Hillary Clinton might have been let off the hook by the FBI in its bewildering but unsurprising refusal to recommend the Department of Justice prosecute any number of violations relating to her private email server and account, but that by no means indicates she isn’t guilty.
To the contrary, FBI Director James Comey’s scathing description of Clinton’s “careless” use of a non-secure platform — through which eight email chains contained information considered “Top Secret” and 36 considered “Secret” at the time it was transmitted — provided direct evidence the former secretary of state committed any number of crimes.
And perjury in testimony to Congress tops the list. Testifying before the House Select Committee on Benghazi, Clinton lied under oath — no less than three times — and her mendacious statements in no way constituted fumbling forgetfulness, ambiguity, or misinterpretation.
Hillary Clinton Committed Perjury
First, Hillary’s claim she ‘turned over’ all emails relating to State Department business just isn’t factual. Asked by committee chair, Rep. Trey Gowdy, whether her previous insistence she ‘turned over everything’ was true, Clinton responded [all emphasis has been added],
“All my work-related emails, yes.”
“How do you know that?” Gowdy pressed. Clinton responded, “I know that because there was an exhaustive search done under the supervision of my attorneys, and that is exactly the outcome. We turned over every work-related email […]”
Comey’s statement tells quite a different tale:
“The FBI discovered several thousand work-related e-mails that were not in the group of 30,000 that were returned by Secretary Clinton to the State in 2014.”
Not only that, but in a separate segment of testimony in response to Rep. Jim Jordan, the lies continued.
Clinton, claiming her attorneys had “conducted a rigorous review” of all 62,000 or more emails to determine which were or were not business-related, was asked by Jordan to elaborate on the term “rigorous” — to which she replied:
“It means they were asked to provide anything that could possibly be construed as work related.”
Jordan again insisted she clarify, responding, “But I’m asking how — I’m asking how it was done. Was — did someone physically look at the 62,000 e-mails, or did you use search terms, date parameters? I want to know the specifics.”
“They did all of that,” Clinton asserted, “and I did not look over their shoulders, because I thought it would be appropriate for them to conduct that search, and they did.”
Asked to provide those search terms, she flippantly over-generalized:
“The search terms were everything you could imagine that might be related to anything, but they also went through every single e-mail.”
But, as Comey noted:
“The lawyers doing the sorting for Secretary Clinton in 2014 did not individually read the content of all of her e-mails, as we did for those available to us; instead, they relied on header information and used search terms to try to find all work-related e-mails among the reportedly more than 60,000 total e-mails remaining on Secretary Clinton’s personal system in 2014.”
Further, as her testimony continued — addressing the hotly-debated issue of classified information transmitted over her unclassified server, Clinton boldly declared:
“There was nothing marked classified on my e-mails, either sent or received.”
Again, a blatant untruth.
“In addition to this highly sensitive information,” Comey continued, discussing the aforementioned Top Secret and Secret matters, as well as additional e-mails considered Sensitive, “we also found information that was properly classified as Secret by the U.S. Intelligence Community at the time it was discussed on e-mail (that is, excluding the later ‘up-classified’ e-mails).”
Perjury isn’t the only potentially criminal act the FBI handily revealed Clinton having committed, but it might be the most blatant.
Despite the difficulty in charging someone with the “technical statute” of perjury for lying under oath in congressional testimony, most hiccups appear to lie in the believability of the person in question’s explanation of their perception at the time the perjurious statement was made.
“It is especially difficult, if not impossible to prosecute statements that may be misleading or evasive but subject to an arguably truthful interpretation,”explained attorney Mark Hopson, managing partner with Sidney Austin LLP’s Washington office, to TIME in 2014.
Clinton’s statements, of course, didn’t leave much room for interpretation.
Possible penalties for perjury include a fine of up to $100,000 — mere chump change for Clinton, who makes more than double that with those notorious speeches for the Big Banking crowd — or up to five years in prison.
At least, theoretically that would be the case.
Comey, for failing to recommend the DOJ prosecute the former secretary of state, has now been called to testify in front of the U.S. House Oversight Committee on Thursday after explosive criticism erupted following the FBI’s announcement.
But will Hillary Clinton ever see the world through prison bars — the same prison bars countless nonviolent criminals subject to penalties from the contentiously overbearing crime bill she championed during her husband’s tenure in the White House?
Judging by the enormity of the deceitful mishandling of the private email server and countless other highly questionable, if not outright criminal acts she is known or alleged to have committed, the answer would almost certainly be never.
Hillary Clinton and James Comey just proved the Clinton dynasty’s sacrosanct status to the establishment — an impunity so impenetrable, it would seem the family truly might be above the law.
