Do you know who you’ll be voting for in the 2016 presidential race? Is Hillary Clinton the best choice? Is she trustworthy? Many voters do not trust Hillary Clinton. In March, news of her private email server was brought to light. Will this be a huge challenge for Hillary as she attempts to run for president in 2016?
There are a lot of lawsuits against Hillary, dozens in fact. They are trying to get a hold of Hillary’s emails. It appears that the state department will be asking for all of the lawsuits to be considered by only one judge.
Some of Hillary’s aides have been called in before the House Select Committee for closed door depositions. One of the former state department employees, Bryan Pagliano has plead the fifth amendment because he doesn’t want to testify before the committee. Does that mean he doesn’t want to incriminate Hillary Clinton? Would he have to testify of knowing something, knowing of classified emails and material that may have been sent or received by Hillary? Is Bryan Pagliano protecting Hillary by pleading the fifth. Something seems off to me, fishy in fact.
On October 22, Hillary will go before the committee for an open hearing. It is said to be one event, one hearing, that will bring in a lot of television attraction. Did Hilary commit a crime? They are saying she did not because she didn’t “knowingly” release classified materials. That sounds so ridiculous. She’s not being investigated of “knowingly” sending any classified materials. The State Department has stated that the information they have reviewed and uncovered isn’t deemed classified at the time it was sent or received. What does that even mean?
Each government agency in and of itself, is liable for deciding which of their own materials is deemed classified. There are a team of about 12 officials who are going through emails and they will recommend whether or not the emails should or should not be called “classified.”
A spokesman for the state department reported that they have to go through every email with a fine toothed comb. They not only have the state department review all of the emails, but they also have an intelligence community go through the emails to determine whether they are “classified” or not. Some of the emails will be easy to determine whether or not they are classified. On the other hand, some of them will require more time to look over, review and will even require a discussion to determine the outcome.
Did Hilary violate government policy? Well, U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan has come to the conclusion that Hilary did violate government policy. He commented that if Hilary would have followed the policy, this wouldn’t be an issue at all. All of the lawsuits over her emails would not be lawsuits.
So Hilary had to turn over her private server to the FBI. The server that she had wiped clean. Apparently she had to provide hard copies of the emails to the state department as well as a PDF electronic copy to the Justice Department. People are wondering though, if the emails have the meta data on it. A server that has been wiped clean, will it have any meta data on it? Would you see the emails the same way as you would see them on the server verses a PDF copy on a thumb drive of the emails. I don’t think so. The emails could have very easily been altered or changed. Who knows if parts of emails where changed or deleted.
Hilary claims she didn’t ever send or receive emails that were deemed classified at the time. Ironically enough, many of Hilary’s emails have been determined classified, in fact retroactively classified by the state department.
