#Election2016: #EmailGate Worse Than #PlameGate For Sure

So yes, THIS happened:

Clinton received an email in March 2011 from her longtime adviser Sidney Blumenthal that identified a covert Libyan source who was reportedly working with the CIA. Blumenthal said his business partner, the late former CIA agent Tyler Drumheller, had given the information to him.

Clinton forwarded the email over her personal server to a colleague, according to emails published on Thursday by Rep. Trey Gowdy (R., S.C.), chairman of the House select committee on Benghazi.

An intelligence source said that the email could trigger an investigation into whether any of the parties violated the Intelligence Identities Protection Act, calling the apparent disclosure “a couple steps above Valerie Plame.” …

Blumenthal’s email does not say how Drumheller, who was retired from the CIA at the time, received the information. It is also unclear why Drumheller would pass it along to Blumenthal, who was not in government.

There’s a lot to unpack here. First, let’s start with the comparison with Valerie Plame. Valerie Plame was a CIA employee that was outed by Richard Armitage to Robert Novak in 2003. In Novak’s own words:

Then, without explanation, in June 2003, (Richard) Armitage’s office said the deputy secretary would see me. This was two weeks before Joe Wilson outed himself as author of a 2002 report for the CIA debunking Iraqi interest in buying uranium in Africa.

I sat down with Armitage in his State Department office the afternoon of July 8 with tacit rather than explicit ground rules: deep background with nothing said attributed to Armitage or even to an anonymous State Department official. Consequently, I refused to identify Armitage as my leaker until his admission was forced by “Hubris,” a new book by reporters Michael Isikoff and David Corn that absolutely identified him.

Late in my hour-long interview with Armitage, I asked why the CIA had sent Wilson – who lacked intelligence experience, nuclear policy expertise or recent contact with Niger – on the African mission. He told The Post last week that his answer was: “I don’t know, but I think his wife worked out there.” …

First, Armitage did not, as he now indicates, merely pass on something he had heard and that he “thought” might be so. Rather, he identified to me the CIA division where Mrs. Wilson worked and said flatly that she recommended the mission to Niger by her husband, former ambassador Joseph Wilson. Second, Armitage did not slip me this information as idle chitchat, as he now suggests. He made clear that he considered it especially suited for my column.

An accurate depiction of what Armitage actually said deepens the irony of his being my source. He was a foremost internal skeptic of the administration’s war policy, and I had long opposed military intervention in Iraq. Zealous foes of George W. Bush transformed me, improbably, into the president’s lapdog. But they cannot fit Armitage into the left-wing fantasy of a well-crafted White House conspiracy to destroy Joe and Valerie Wilson. The news that he, and not Karl Rove, was the leaker was devastating for the left.

My own very personal opinion is that Richard Armitage did what he did to attack the Bush Admin. But I digress.

Robert Novak flatly denied Valerie Plame was covered by the Intelligence Identities Protection Act, because she was an analyst. What we are looking at here, is a (now long dead) former CIA agent giving Sidney Blumenthal the name of a current (in March 2011) CIA informant, who then passed it to Hillary Clinton and in turn passed it to an unnamed State Department official ON AN UNSERCURE EMAIL SERVER!!

The biggest question we should be asking ourselves, is how did Tyler Drumheller get his hands on the information and why he passed it onto Sidney Blumenthal. Since Drumheller is dead, we need to turn to Sidney Blumenthal who is very likely lawyering up as we speak.

This is worse than PlameGate for sure. Valerie Plame was an employee, an analyst, of the CIA. We are now talking field agents and assets here. We are talking about intelligence gathering operations. We are talking about people’s lives:

John Rizzo, the former acting general counsel of the CIA, responded to news that Clinton confidante Sidney Blumenthal disclosed the name of a CIA source in an email to then-Secretary of State Clinton, who then forwarded that information to a colleague at the State Department.

“How dangerous is that [information] going over a public server that’s held in someone’s private home in Chappaqua, New York?” Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough said.

“It could be literally lethal,” Rizzo said. “Who has access to that? Who is trying to hack into it? If this was a foreign-based source living in Libya, let’s say, if you get outed as the CIA source over there, you’re a dead man. So it couldn’t be more serious.”

Literally. Lethal.

Another big question now becomes with evidence of actual law breaking taking place, will Democrats keep defending Hillary Clinton or Sidney Blumenthal? As the reality sinks in that the Intelligence Identities Protection Act was violated here (unlike in PlameGate), will those same Democrats who savaged Karl Rove turn their ire onto Sidney Blumenthal?

Unlikely. And if Scumbag Joe Biden isn’t going to run, Clinton and Blumenthal will get away with it, because Obama Admin needs them to secure his legacy. The Justice Department will make a show investigation and then just as quietly drop the matter in a couple of months. Mark my words.

Well, see ya’ later!


#Election2016: Did @HillaryClinton Admit To #Perjury On Live TV?

At some point, watching someone repeatedly shoot themselves in the foot becomes boring. We are not just yet at this point with Hillary Clinton:

Yep. Clinton just admitted (ON LIVE TV!) that she didn’t participate in her email review and she can’t guarantee FBI won’t find anything. Up until now, she has stated flatly that she turned over all work related emails without qualifiers. Not only is she moving the goal posts and passing the buck to her lawyers now that her deleted emails have been recovered, but she might have outright committed perjury on the August 8, 2015 affidavit Hillary Clinton signed.

What affidavit? This affidavit:

Hillary Clinton Email Affidavit

Now I am no lawyer, but I can read plain language and this affidavit is readable. If, for some reason, you cannot read the file, here is the relevant parts:

I, Hillary Rodham Clinton, declare under penalty of perjury that the following is true and correct:

…I have directed that all my e-mails on clintonemail.com in my custody that were or potentially were federal records be provided to the Department of State, and on information and belief, this has been done.

If I was David Kendall, I’d be getting my own lawyer at this point and maybe look into cutting a plea deal. I don’t know how clear this can be people. If a bench warrant isn’t issued for Hillary Clinton in the next few months, I’ll be outright astonished. Only time will tell if there is a cover-up or not.

Well, see ya’ later!


The #13Hours/@13hours Trailers Discussion

Yes, TRAILERS. As in “more than one” for those who do not understand the rules of English. Two dropped at the same time and they are absolutely fucking brutal. First up, we have the sort-of SFW one:

Then we have the Red Band trailer, just because I say so:

At first, I thought I saw Noah Wyle as one of the actors. However that may be Pablo Schreiber, of which I think it is a good call.

My friend Moe Lane notes the obvious:

January 2016, huh? …That’s going to get some people exercised, particularly since even the trailer is making it clear that it’s a movie about Heroic American Mavericks Who Had To Fight Both The Enemy And The Cowards At The State Department.

But what is important about that, is that Michael Bay didn’t pull this story out of his ass. It is not some “right-wing” fantasy. There might be some dramatic changes made for the film, but this movie is based off the book, “13 Hours: The Inside Account Of What Really Happened In Benghazi” by Mitchell Zuckoff and THE KICKASS MOTHERFUCKERS WHO WERE THERE!

The public is more or less indifferent to what happen. This is going to change, even if they see this trailer. They will see this, think: “13 Hours? Benghazi? State Department?” and go home to do a google search on these subjects. And Hillary Clinton links everything together. They will be exposed to the lies, the cover-up, and the stonewalling to the general public.

Hillary Clinton has three options, all of them bad. If she tried to suppress the movie, calls of “suppressing free speech” will be heard and just give the movie free press. If Clinton tries to mock the movie, THE KICKASS MOTHERFUCKERS WHO WERE THERE will come out and ask her to mock them to their face. And ignoring the book didn’t stop it from becoming a best seller.

When news of Hillary Clinton wanting to testify before the Benghazi in October broke, my first thought was will she do so under oath. “Why?” should have been my first question. This movie is the “why” she is testifying. I believe Clinton wants to get out ahead of this before the movie blows up too much. I am hoping this will force some truth to the light of day, but I am doubtful.

However I think it is too late. These trailers will do their damage long before October rolls around. To top off everything, “13 Hours” comes out January 2016. Just in time when no one has anything to talk about other than the Election 2016. If I was Hillary Clinton and I care about keeping the White House in Democrat’s hands, I’d be looking for ways to gracefully drop out of the race soon. I am thankful she doesn’t care about other Democrats or Obama’s legacy and only herself, so Clinton will thankfully pass on my advice here.

Well, see ya’ later!
