Jill Stein: Prosecute Clinton for Reckless Abuses of National Security

jilld

From Green presidential candidate Jill Stein’s campaign website, July 6th, 2016:

Jill Stein made the following statement about the FBI decision regarding Hillary Clinton’s violations of national security laws as Secretary of State.

Today FBI Director James Comey described Hillary Clinton’s email communications as Secretary of State as “extremely careless.” His statement undermined the defenses Clinton put forward, stating the FBI found 110 emails on Clinton’s server that were classified at the time they were sent or received; eight contained information classified at the highest level, “top secret,” at the time they were sent. That stands in direct contradiction to Clinton’s repeated insistence she never sent or received any classified emails.

All the elements necessary to prove a felony violation were found by the FBI investigation, specifically of Title 18 Section 793(f) of the federal penal code, a law ensuring proper protection of highly classified information. Director Comey said that Clinton was “extremely careless” in handling such information. Contrary to the implications of the FBI statement, the law does not require showing that Clinton intended to harm the United States, but that she acted with gross negligence.

The recent State Department Inspector General (IG) report was clear that Clinton blithely disregarded safeguards to protect the most highly classified national security information and that she included on her unprotected email server the names of covert CIA officers. The disclosure of such information is a felony under the Intelligence Identities Protection Act.

While the FBI is giving Clinton a pass for not “intending” to betray state secrets, her staff has said Secretary Clinton stated she used her private email system because she did not want her personal emails to become accessible under FOI laws. This is damning on two counts – that she intended to disregard the protection of security information, and that she had personal business to conceal.

This is not the end of the Clinton email issues. Department of Justice officials filed a motion in federal court on June 29th requesting a 27-month delay in producing correspondence between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s four top aides and officials with the Clinton Foundation and Teneo Holdings, a public relations firm that Bill Clinton helped launch.

Hillary Clinton deleted 30,000 emails claiming they were ‘personal’. This is equal to the volume of her emails designated as department business. If half of an employee’s email volume is for their personal business, they are not using their time for their job.

If Secretary Clinton was conducting personal business for her family Foundation through the Secretary of State’s Office, this is a matter the American public deserves to know about. As Secretary of State Hillary Clinton routinely granted lucrative special contracts, weapons deals and government partnerships to Clinton Foundation donors. The Secretary of State’s office should not be a place to conduct private back room business deals.

The blurring of the lines between Clinton family private business and national security matters in the Secretary of State Office underscores evidence on many other fronts that Hillary Clinton is serving the 1%, not we the people.

Hillary Clinton’s failure to protect critical security information is not the only thing in her tenure as Secretary that deserves the term reckless, including her decision to pursue catastrophic regime change in Libya, and to support the overthrow of democratically elected governments in Ukraine and Honduras.

    Great statement. It was watered down a little bit in press accounts, but this is very solid.

  2. Charles B. Parker, LtCol, USAF Retired.

    What you people do not understand is that there is a protocol for classifying information. The originator is responsible as it is presumed he/she/they know most about the subject. If they generate a document and fail to properly classify it, and then disseminate it — the recipient is not at fault. The person who generates the product is on the hook for all the security failures. If the mistake is not willfull then at most it is an administrative personnel matter.

    Agreed. This is a really good statement from Jill Stein. In contrast to what Gary Johnson — arguably the most intellectually inept guy in American politics — recently had to say about Hillary Clinton when he described her as a “wonderful public servant” while inexplicably giving her a pass on the evolving e-mail scandal, it’s refreshing to see at least one third-party candidate for the White House willing to attack both of her major-party rivals.

    Another interpretation of GJ’s reticence to comment on the HRC email scandal is that he was waiting to hear what the outcome was of the FBI investigation. This could be prudent. Now that Comey has announced the FBI’s findings, J/W may change their tack.

    In the end, what J/W say about EmailGate will likely have almost no impact on the campaign, so it strikes me that this approach is the best use of their bandwidth. Since it will come up in future press events, I would suggest they point out the obvious: That HRC displayed cavalier recklessness and probably was trying to hide her dealings. With a slew of questionable scandals in her past, we should not be surprised if an H. Clinton Administration will lack transparency.

    This country desperately needs a third way.

    Bravo Stein!

    However “If Secretary Clinton was conducting personal business for her family Foundation through the Secretary of State’s Office, this is a matter the American public deserves to know about. As Secretary of State Hillary Clinton routinely granted lucrative special contracts, weapons deals and government partnerships to Clinton Foundation donors. The Secretary of State’s office should not be a place to conduct private back room business deals.”

    “private back room business deals.” is a remarkable circumlocution for ‘taking payoffs and bribes’.

    To Jill Stein’s frank discussion might be added the topic of prosecutorial discretion. What standards apply to the exercise of prosecutorial discretion? How do you square the pass given to Hillary Clinton with the prosecution of General David Petraeus for sharing highly classified information with an aide who also had a top security clearance?

  7. Jill Pyeatt

    Petraeus was being punished because he no longer wanted to participate in covering up others’ crimes. I thought everyone knew this.

  8. dL

    “Agreed. This is a really good statement from Jill Stein.”

    i suppose it is if you ascribe to government secrecy classifications and the proposition that civilization would implode without them. Personally, my own security was not compromised by Clinton’s ineptitude. My liberty however is compromised by the actions of governments hiding behind secrecy classification. Clinton’s crimes were merely crimes against the state. She however is a real criminal and there are real crimes she can be prosecuted for, namely the war variety.

    I would like to comment about our political correctness of the law in America. This current issue over Hillary Clinton using government data and secret information on her Unsecured Private Email Servers and Communication Devises as the Top Level Official SOS Department is a Breach of Duty The FBI has shown its TRUE COLORS For The Elites and DOUBLE STANDARD OF JUSTICE IN AMERICA.

    THEREFORE, there is an old saying, “One Crow does not pick-out another Crow Eyes”.

    She will never Eat-Crow with the Cabal Elites backing her for POTUS. Even if, she is unfit to hold any Office in Government.

    Thus, We the People, need to Petition the Common Law Grand Jury; Stop/Remove The Status Quo and Practice of Hillary Clinton For POTUS.

    We the People need to remove the Democrat Candidate
    Hillary Clinton for the POTUS due to her prior corruption and
    actions. She is the most incompetent and reckless person in High
    Level Office and she must be accountable and responsible as a Sworn
    Officer. Her Top Level Office in Government as the former SOS, place
    the lives of Overseas Personnel in serious conditions and misused
    government information and data of National Security and Defense
    Operations with malice and wrongful behavior for the Secretary of
    State Department.

    Hillary Clinton, is unfit to hold any Office in
    Government and has shown that her integrity and trust cannot be
    acceptable for sensitive matter in protecting and defending America
    Borders. She is a member of the CFR(Round Table Group) NWO/UN policy
    making representative of the Elites Cable Secret Society and
    the Zionist Jews Party.

    Hillary Clinton, supported the Republican Patriot
    Acts and other Illegal Acts such as the Bailout of the banks and
    market financial funds that caused America Economic Crisis in 2008,
    America Is Rich In Debt 19 Trillion Dollars. She is Anti-Patriotic
    and hates the well-being and health concerns of Mother Hood for
    Pre-Born Babies. She is Anti-Christian hates The Holy God, Holy
    Spirit and Our Lord Jesus Christ Words and Teachings. She accepts
    Immorality and other evil acts against humanity as doing what feels
    good is OK even if it KILLS YOU sooner than later.

    Hillary Clinton support the wars in the Middle East
    and on Iraq Citizen that had nothing to do with the 911 False Flag
    Attacks on American soil.

    We the People, are facing daily Terror from other
    countries because our government representatives lack any knowledge
    and wisdom to deal with angry Arab People that did nothing. However,
    Israel has benefited greatly from the America Troops present and
    blood shed from the Iraq War.

    HILLARY CLINTON, NEGLECTED HER DUTIES IN SERVICE OF
    HER COUNTRY. SHE VIOLATED THE COUNTRY SECURITY AND HANDLING OF SECRET
    DATA USING HER PRIVATE COMMUNICATION NETWORK SERVERS NOT APPROVED FOR
    SENSITIVE INFORMATION AS THE SOS DEPARTMENT LEADER. SHE HAS SHOWN THAT
    SHE CANNOT BE TRUSTED.

    Note:
    We the People and Donald Trump are the best chance to STOP The Elites New World Order Ideology and Remove Hillary Clinton For POTUS.

    As an Army Soldier, Veteran Patriot and Christian I Love America. Therefore, I took and Oath and Sworn Obligation to Protect and Defend America from all Enemy Foreign and Domestic to the best of my abilities. Hillary Clinton is an Enemy of The State and a Traitor to America Virtues. She most likely has Dual citizenship in the State of Israel and her loyalty is to Israel.

  11. Tony From Long Island

    The so called “Christian Patriot, etc.” above is a disgrace to the uniform.

    Dual citizenship . . .yeah… in that country run by a neo-con . . . Sometimes I am glad I was locked up for 12 years. I missed all of the stress that comes from reading nonsense online . . . the stress of prison life is nothing compared to this crap.

  12. John W. Stanis

    HILLARY CLINTON IS A TRAITOR
    WE are all witnessing how our political correctness of the law in America works. Hillary Clinton action as Secretary of State (Handling Secret Material) violated her sworn duties in office. Her job title and activities in matters of security, defense and Top Level Data forbid her from using her Unsecured Private Email Servers and Communication Devises as the Top Level Official in SOS Department. However, she willfully abused her powers(rogue agent) that caused a clear action in Breach of Her Duty, Also, WE see The FBI Agency being controlled and showing its TRUE COLORS For The Elites and DOUBLE STANDARD OF JUSTICE IN AMERICA.

    THEREFORE, there is an old saying, “One Crow does not pick-out another Crow Eyes”. She will never Eat-Crow with the Cabal Elites backing her for POTUS. Even if, she is unfit to hold any Office in Government. Thus, We the People, need to Petition the Common Law Grand Jury; Stop/Remove The Status Quo and Practice of Hillary Clinton For POTUS.

    As an Army Military Soldier, Veteran Patriot and Christian I Love America. I took an Oath and Sworn Obligation to Protect and Defend America from all Enemy Foreign and Domestic to the best of my abilities. Hillary Clinton is an Enemy of The State and a Traitor to America Virtues. She most likely has Dual Citizenship in the State of Israel and her loyalty is to Israel. It is one thing to be an Allied and another thing to be a Traitor . JWS

  13. Tony From Long Island

    Zzzzzz Yawn . . . try some De-caf. You really need to find something to relax. One major thing wrong with politics in today’s society is people throwing around crap like “traitor,” “hates America” .. etc. I thought George W. Bush was Terrible and one of the worst presidents in our history, but he doesn’t HATE AMERICA. Reagan was involved in trading arms for hostages, but I don’t think he was a TRAITOR, just a bad president.

    Tirades like this are a real embarrassment to the military.

    “Hillary Clinton’s failure to protect critical security information is not the only thing in her tenure as Secretary that deserves the term reckless, including her decision to pursue catastrophic regime change in Libya, and to support the overthrow of democratically elected governments in Ukraine and Honduras.”

    Well done. Should have been the start of the piece.

    HI FRIENDS, We need away to know the Enemy Plans. I believe the Protocols of Zion lays out the subterfuge and scheming against Sovereign Nations Liberty and Freedoms. Therefore, herein are advanced warnings for the 2016 POTUS General Election:
    MASSES LED BY LIES

    4. Moreover, the art of directing masses and individuals by means of cleverly manipulated theory and verbiage, by regulations of life in common and all sorts of other quirks, in all which the GOYIM understand nothing, belongs likewise to the specialists of our administrative brain. Reared on analysis, observation, on delicacies of fine calculation, in this species of skill we have no rivals, any more than we have either in the drawing up of plans of political actions and solidarity. In this respect the Jesuits alone might have compared with us, but we have contrived to discredit them in the eyes of the unthinking mob as an overt organization, while we ourselves all the while have kept our secret organization in the shade. However, it is probably all the same to the world who is its sovereign lord, whether the head of Catholicism or our despot of the blood of Zion! But to us, the Chosen People, it is very far from being a matter of indifference.

    5. FOR A TIME PERHAPS WE MIGHT BE SUCCESSFULLY DEALT WITH BY A COALITION OF THE “GOYIM” OF ALL THE WORLD: but from this danger we are secured by the discord existing among them whose roots are so deeply seated that they can never now be plucked up. We have set one against another the personal and national reckonings of the GOYIM, religious and race hatreds, which we have fostered into a huge growth in the course of the past twenty centuries. This is the reason why there is not one State which would anywhere receive support if it were to raise its arm, for every one of them must bear in mind that any agreement against us would be unprofitable to itself. We are too strong – there is no evading our power. THE NATIONS CANNOT COME TO EVEN AN INCONSIDERABLE PRIVATE AGREEMENT WITHOUT OUR SECRETLY HAVING A HAND IN IT.

    6. PER ME REGES REGNANT. “It is through me that Kings reign.” And it was said by the prophets that we were chosen by God Himself to rule over the whole earth. God has endowed us with genius that we may be equal to our task. Were genius in the opposite camp it would still struggle against us, but even so, a newcomer is no match for the old-established settler: the struggle would be merciless between us, such a fight as the world has never seen. Aye, and the genius on their side would have arrived too late. All the wheels of the machinery of all States go by the force of the engine, which is in our hands, and that engine of the machinery of States is – Gold. The science of political economy invented by our learned elders has for long past been giving royal prestige to capital.

    THE MASSES ARE RALLYING/MODS WITH THE INTENTIONS TO DISCONNECT WITH THE ELITES NWO IN A SHOWDOWN AT THE 2016 GENERAL ELECTION.

  16. John W. Stanis

    WE have NO Justice and Rights for America Virtues under the Law by Political Correctness of the Despot Obama Courts.

    The Beast Legal System does not recognize Justice in the laws, rules and statues in any courtrooms. Your case is treated as liability, asset and equity of the law and the remedies for fairness of any claims are in the hands of the courts.

    The DOJ is a fraud and We the People and all its parts are victims of the law defecto procedures when seeking fairness or justice in the FBI circle of Elites and despot courts. Therefore, there is No True Law in the Beast System political law establish in government.

    To remove the fraud and deceit of the courts, Hillary Clinton Case must go into the hands of the People Common Law Grand Jury for Indictment of Charges.
