Mills shredding party mastermind (via NY Post)

"The smoking gun is on page 16 of the FBI’s 47-page report. It details how Mills ultimately made the determinations about which emails should be preserved before she and Clinton decided to delete the rest as “personal.” Clinton conducted both government and personal business using a personal email account — clintonemail.com — tied to an unsecured server set up in the basement of her New York home."
The FBI makes clear the procedure Mills used to sort out the emails was suspicious.

For starters, Mills was the one who ordered the server host to move the emails from the server to a laptop where she could screen them. She told investigators she could “not recall” if emails with non-gov addresses were included in the transfer. It’s unlikely they were, because an aide who helped her search told the FBI she only screened for emails sent to or from Clinton with .gov and .mil — not .com — addresses.

That means messages involving government business between Clinton and her then-deputy chief of staff Huma Abedin — the only aide who had an email account on the clintonemail.com system— were not likely captured. Nor were messages sent between Clinton and Mills and other aides using personal email addresses.

Correspondence between Clinton and Abedin (who regularly emailed her boss from huma@clintonemail.com and HAbedin@hillaryclinton.com) is crucial, Fitton says, because Abedin acted as the go-between on requests for access to Clinton from shady foreign Clinton Foundation donors. He says the mushrooming “pay-for-play” scandal is the real reason the former secretary of state set up a private email system in the first place.

“The whole thing was designed to keep Clinton Foundation emails away from investigators,” he said.

And Mills may have been a key player in the game of hide-and-seek.

“It was clear they did not want non-.gov related emails picked up in their search, so they said, let’s search in a way that those emails won’t be picked up; and if they are picked up, we’ll have Mills come in and shred them,” Fitton said.

Indeed, the FBI said Mills “shredded” any copies of emails she “deemed not to be work-related” before they were turned over to State in response to requests for information from Judicial Watch, the media, Congress and the FBI. The laptop hardrive was later wiped clean using a computer program called BleachBit.

The FBI said it was “unable to obtain a complete list of keywords or named officials searched,” because Mills asserted that such information was “privileged.” In fact, when agents pressed her, Mills stormed out of the room and ended the interview. Curiously, the FBI honored her claim of privilege and did not pursue the matter.

“Mills did not do a proper search of the server,” Fitton asserted. “The evidence was just essentially shredded.”

He added that Mills and a State aide who assisted her in conducting the dubious search — Heather Samuelson, a loyal Clinton campaign worker — had a vested interest in covering up email evidence.

“They were State Department employees and were completely conflicted in conducting that search,” he said.

As participants in the activities under investigation, Mills and Samuelson should have been key FBI targets, yet both appeared at Hillary’s FBI interview with her phalanx of lawyers, allowing them insights into the investigation.

Fitton said their attendance was highly unusual, but not surprising. He said it was just one more sign the fix was in with the FBI’s investigation of Clinton’s emails: “It’s the Keystone Kops approach to investigating.”

This is clearly costing Frumpty as much as the stories about her health.

One presumes the fact people learning about how the 90s weren't as peaceful and prosperous as they thought has taken some of the gloss of the Ozarks.

Last night I watched "Whitey, the US v. James J. Bulger" and the most relevant part of that movie is how crooked and corrupt the FBI is and was. Truly an organization that aids and abets criminals and then covers up their crimes.

The entertaining part was hearing that wonderful Southie accent spoken by people who were raised there. Truly tis music to me ears.

Speaking of ears, as my hearing loss worsens I am required to have subtitles on all the tv shows I watch. Cannot understand them without subtitles. But I can still hear a little bit, and I can still spell, so reading subtitles becomes yet another source of comedy gold, as whoever is writing those things cannot spell too good and they grammar ain't be so good, neither.

I went to the hospital the other day and I stopped at the information desk to find out where the ultrasound lab is located. The woman started mumbling, and I was doing okay, until she turned around to point at the hallway I was supposed to take. Since she then had her back to me I could not figure out what she was saying. I told her I can't hear too well and that she needed to look at me to be understood. She was good for about two seconds, then did the same - walk down that hall, turned her back on me to point at the hall and then she kept rambling on. And rambling on was precisely what I did - information my foot!

These punks are 50 x worse than anything that came up in Watergate.

All you may be too young for any of this but I recall quite clearly the hearings a vied from crib. *looks over shoulder* What?

How the hearings did drag on interfering with my regularly scheduled cartoons with annoying updates *looks over other shoulder* WHAT!?

Hillary was part of that incredibly mean investigation. Removed for being too mean, in fact.

So she has partisan meanness in her heart, to her core, saturating her bone marrow. She is thoroughly and unacceptably mean in every ounce of her being. Her brain is nothing BUT partisan meanness, she drips partisan meanness from her fingertips, she salivates political meanness. Her voice box is altered to express only partisan meanness. Her clipped fingernails burn partisan smoke in cigarette ashtrays. She is partisan meanness personified, compressed to every last atom of every single molecule of her physical being, her spirit inhabits the astral plane of political meanness. She is the mean political archetype, the mean political ideal.

Yet she lives. While others perish around her. Her aura kills living things around it. She leaves a trail of poison that destroys everything around her in her wake. Plants wither on land, fish die in the ocean, birds drop out of the sky as she passes, and good people are ruined merely by her propinquity to her radiating gaseous poison.

And she's fat.

Worse than all that she has despicable taste in clothing and very poor taste in shoes.

And all that Democrats can muster, the only thing they can see of this, is how will all this affect her chances of being elected president of United States.

Go on, look and see for yourself. Let's make this simple: [cheryl mills]

This forces me to think of something else to control the contents of my own mind, to protect my spirit, to allow corruption to crash by its own weight, to pursue my desire to become a good person, to align myself with the desires that can only imagine that God has for me, to be true to myself, and to avoid being poisoned by propinquity to evil.

So let me tell you something else instead.

Sixty, That Whitey Bulger doc is very good. It shows what happens when you have shanty Irishmen running the US Attorneys and FBI offices. And, part of the motivation of these crooked, stupid, shanty Irishmen was to take out the Italian organized crime and elevate the shanty Irishmen crook, Bulger. Whose brother also happened to be a crooked shanty Irishmen politician in the MS statehouse.

Mills is part of Hillary's lesbian cartel. The captains are a Negro and Muzzie.

Chip, Good to see you overcame the illness and are writing in chapters again.

I had my first walk since being stricken with illness.

I walked to the nearby marijuana dispensary to fulfill a request from an out of state Friend, Party B.

Party B is acting on another different out of state friend, who lives in yet another state, Party A.

Party A is the only person here who smokes pot. He has an important job that he wants to protect by having his friend acquire marijuana for him. He thinks or feels or knows if his nefarious activity is detected or becomes known that his career will be harmed permanently. I've seen this before a long time ago and frankly I thinks it's being a pussy. But there you go. He is athletic besides.

I never met him. But I was told these things.

I don't even know his name. Yes I do, it starts with a D. No it doesn't, it starts with a D sound. That's it. His name starts with an A. It's nice sounding name. A pleasant name. Adrian ! \o/ I knew I'd get it if I just stuck with it. Party A is Adrien and he lives in a state where all this is legal.

Party B lives in a state where all this is illegal. He has more cash, and more affection, than he has common sense. He's fun to be around. You'd like him. He's retired now and just flat doesn't give a shit about anything. That's Party B.

I noticed the store advertisement for this holiday, they're offering reduced pricing. Further, they're offering an early bird special for the first hour of business. I made a point to take advantage of both.

It's their money, not mine. But hows that for wise shopping, eh? I made it a challenge. I don't know why, I just did. And once the challenge appeared in my mind, then my other mind accepted the challenge. That's how existing in the order of two-brained bipedal order of being goes. You're of two minds left and right hemispheres separated by corpus callosum that allow the two to speak to each other and to cooperate. It's all part of being a human on Earth. (And that's distinct from the one-brained order and the three-brained order. It's our classification of beings. So there ya go. Accept your lot, it's all you can do. Make the best of it.)

Here's the thing that totally GOT me. It blows my mind.

The place was packed.

I was 4th in line, among the earliest of the early birds. We waited outside.

When they opened the door. A young man from behind rushes ahead to pull it open for me and hold it open as I pass through.

Then waiting our turn inside, they accept only 2 customers at a time, another door is buzzed. Another different young man leaps up from his chair and opens the door for me and holds it open for me to pass. They're all reading their cell phones while waiting, yet aware of surroundings.

Leaving the back, the clerk rushes around his counter and opens and holds the door for me

Exiting the building yeat another young man, this is the 4th young man for a single purchase, breaks away from talking to his girlfriend, opens/ holds the door for me.

And I am so humbled by this that I cannot really express. I don't need any f'n help with any g.d. door! I can do this myself easily.

Parents out there, you trained your children excellently. I am so proud of what you have done. It's shown to me everyday. The grace extended, even by pot smokers is truly outstanding.

Back on the street a couple ignored me when I greeted them both at the light. There you go, this isn't 100% true all around. There are dopy, self-sentered, and inconsiderate people out there too.

So now I have a whole ounce of pot until Party B makes it in from his state to collect it. Hope he's happy because the gave me $110.00 more than required and I'm keeping it. For requesting that I be Adrian's mule. If Adrian gets busted it'll be no fault of mine.

Adrian, Adrian, Adrian, Adrian, Adrian, whoever you are.

From the files of Police Squad.

Page 17. The first two paragraphs under Section G on Deletions, the second paragraph in particular, make it clear to me that Lt. Drebin was the lead investigator on the Clinton case.

Shirley there will be follow-up on the missing Apple laptop and thumb drive.

Whoever has those, if they haven't been hammered, holds the Keys to the Kingdom.

@AllenS - five cents, just like in the old days.

What?

But seriously, Chip A may have stumbled onto a revenue stream that is more profitable than an Amazon portal.

The FBI has always been incompetent and shifty. Back to the Hoover days. Read the book "No Left Turns" if you want to get a feeling for their incompetence.

The Whitey Bulger case is just one of the more egregious examples.

The Greg Scarpa debacle was even worse. The FBI used him to do their dirty work. When the three civil rights workers went missing in Mississippi they flew him down to put a gun in the mouth of a KKK guy to get the location of the bodies. They protected and covered up for him for decades until he was dying of Aides and wasn't of any use to them.

You can't trust the Feebes.

Chip Ahoy said...

Why do they keep understating? They all know it was criminal yet they say only suspicious. What are they afraid of? That half the country will be forced to acknowledge that they're supporting corruption? It's bogus.

You don't even have to reverse parties to get at understanding. Just acknowledge the simple truth. And yet that is impossible for half the country. It's bizarre.

Barbara Jordan speaking on the Nixon impeachment.

"My faith in the constitution is whole. It is complete. It is total. And I am not going to sit here and be an idle spectator, to the demolution, the subversion, the destruction of the constitution."


Why and when did I lose my own trust in the constitution? I feel the same when I talk with my evangelical friends who have been saved by the blood of Jesus and by whose stripes they are healed. I'm jealous of that faith, that total certainty they have.

I used to believe in the constitution, with all the faith that I had lost in the church. But now the crooks are running the show, and its just a piece of paper.

btw 'demolution' is a perfectly crumulent word.
