So the FBI, Department of Justice, Inspector General of the State and Inspector General of the Intelligence Community ALL are investigating Hillary Clinton. Do you really think the overall public cares? How about the Democrats care? Does anyone care?
Democratic presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is facing an “uprising” in the national security establishment prompted by long-standing anger about her cavalier handling of classified materials and government secrets.
As Clinton’s case progresses, it appears the probe is being directed by intelligence and national security law enforcement authorities rather than civilian agencies subject to political influence, according to a Daily Caller News Foundation investigation.
There are currently at least four national security investigations, including those by the FBI, Department of Justice, and the inspectors general for the Department of State and the Intelligence Community.
“The way I’m reading this is that there’s this uprising in the national security bureaucracies to prosecute Mrs. Clinton,” Tom Fitton told TheDCNF. Fitton is president of the nonprofit government watchdog Judicial Watch, which is preparing to depose top Clinton aides and possibly her as well, in litigation stemming from the State Department’s maladroit handling of a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.
Fitton’s group has also won multiple federal court victories after the release of 55,000 pages of emails sent to and from Clinton regarding her use of a private email address and server located in her New York home to conduct official government business during her four years as the nation’s chief diplomat.“There’s just this kind of ‘just-the-facts approach’ out of the national security establishment on this,” Fitton told TheDCNF. “I don’t see Mrs. Clinton escaping prosecution here.”
Ultimately, the national security division (NSD) at the Justice Department will decide whether or not to recommend to Attorney General Loretta Lynch Clinton or any of her aides be indicted.
Virtually all former Justice Department and U.S. Attorneys interviewed by TheDCNF described the division, which was created by President George W. Bush in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, as the least politicized division in the department. Charges of partisan management of other Justice Department divisions have been frequently lodged during President Barack Obama’s tenure in the Oval Office.
The little-known division is made up of prosecutors who have backgrounds in military affairs, intelligence, anti-terrorism and espionage. There are no political appointees among the 400 employees working in the division.
“They are straight arrows, a mission-focused kind of approach,” according to Kenneth Wainstein. He was the assistant attorney general who established the division in 2006.
“They focus on the mission. They focus on how those agents achieve that mission, whether it’s stopping terrorism or stopping spies. When they walk into their office, they park their politics at the door,” Wainstein told TheDCNF.
“None of the prosecutors in the National Security Division are going to approach this with a political perspective,” said another former senior Justice Department official from the Bush junior years. “They certainly are not going to be worried about it in terms of partisan politics,” he told TheDCNF. The official only would talk on the condition of anonymity.
National Security division prosecutors do things “by the book,” said Luke Dembosky, who left the division earlier this month after a year-and-a-half as deputy assistant attorney general for the NSD. “They have the utmost integrity, from the top of the division to the bottom.”
REALLY? Then why hasn’t Hillary been put in jail yet for all the documents that have been released or shared by who knows who just from her email alone. Certainly we all remember what happened to General Petraeus don’t we? We all remember what happened to those involved in Watergate don’t we? What’s taking these people so long? Do they want to wait until she gets the nomination AND THEN nab her and replace her with one of their own dopes?
