John Kerry too! Used non-official email account to send classified info to Hillary, State Dept just confirmed

John Kerry, too?

The level of incompetence within the Obama administration reached a new low when it was discovered that Secretary of State John Kerry used a private email account to send Hillary Clinton information in 2011 that has since been classified.

The State Department confirmed on Tuesday that while in the U.S. Senate, Kerry used a “non-official” email address to send information that was later upgraded to “secret,” according to the Washington Examiner.

“I can tell you the [email] that we talked about being upgraded to secret was sent from a non-official account, and the account from which it was sent is no longer active,” State Department spokesman John Kirby said. “I’ve not spoken to the secretary about his reaction to that being out there.”

Kerry included thoughts on the visit of India’s prime minister to Kabul in the heavily redacted email from May 2011, the Examiner reported.

While Americans may never fully know to what extend national security might have been compromised by the actions of Clinton and Kerry, America’s enemies are sure to appreciate their efforts.

Prison seemed to be a recurring theme on social media in reaction to the news… here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:

    No problem, just one more rope.

    Misery loves company. Hillary would love to tell the vast right-wing conspiracy, “you can’t put us all in jail”. Of course, she won’t. She’s innocent of all wrong-doing. Just ask her.

    LURCH Is as guilty as Hillary is. This will get swept under the proverbial rug. Hillary will NOT be indicted, as she is part of Obama’s criminal enterprise and the potential to expose the collusion to destroy the USA between them must not see the light of truth.

    The sobering reality is that the entire government is corrupt, including all of the unelected “civil servants.” Even if we could immediately throw out all of the elected officials, the stench would only be mildly relieved. Nothing short of a complete cleansing of all those who receive taxpayer compensation for labor would begin to correct the problem. Banning labor unions from government would also be necessary. Unfortunately I’m skeptical that anything short of a revolution that turns out the entire government force will be effective. I would hope that such an overthrow of government could happen as a result of non-violent civil disobedience, but with the power that government is likely to apply to resist such an effort, violent resistance may be inevitable.

    NOVEMBER 12, 2015

    FBI agents are looking at U.S. Code 18, Section 1001, which pertains to “materially false” statements given either in writing, orally or through a third party. Violations also include pressuring a third party to conspire in a cover-up. Each felony violation is subject to five years in prison.

    This phase represents an expansion of the FBI probe, which is also exploring potential violations of an Espionage Act provision relating to “gross negligence” in the handling of national defense information.

    …The section of the criminal code being explored is known as “statements or entries generally,” and can be applied when an individual makes misleading or false statements causing federal agents to expend additional resources and time. In this case, legal experts as well as a former FBI agent said, Section 1001 could apply if Clinton, her aides or attorney were not forthcoming with FBI agents about her emails, classification and whether only non-government records were destroyed.

    Or…

    “Title 18. Section 2071.”

    Let’s take a look at what he’s talking about. The statute starts out like this in paragraph (a):

    Whoever willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, or destroys, or attempts to do so, or, with intent to do so takes and carries away any record, proceeding, map, book, paper, document, or other thing, filed or deposited with any clerk or officer of any court of the United States, or in any public office, or with any judicial or public officer of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

    That’s along the same lines as things we’ve been discussing all along. But the big news is in paragraph (b). (Emphasis added)

    Whoever, having the custody of any such record, proceeding, map, book, document, paper, or other thing, willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, falsifies, or destroys the same, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both; and shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States. As used in this subsection, the term “office” does not include the office held by any person as a retired officer of the Armed Forces of the United States.

    Wouldn’t wiping classified records (assuming that’s proven by the FBI) from your private server, or directing others to do that to the server while it’s sitting in a bathroom in Colorado, qualify as removing, obliterating or destroying said records?

    This may shed some new light on why Hillary Clinton has been so unwilling to answer some very basic questions when facing the press. She has finally been asked directly (by Ed Henry – Fox News) if she either wiped the server or directed that it be wiped. She tried to write that one off with a joke, saying, “What? You mean with a cloth?” But her legal team has surely been looking this situation over very closely and are doubtless aware of Title 18, Section 2071, paragraph (b). If the answer to that question is actually “yes” and she admits it in public, she could well be literally ending her presidential bid, not to mention opening herself up to the possibility of a fine or jail time. (Or both.)

    Is this what will finally bring Clinton down? Don’t bet the ranch on it. It would require the will on the part of those not only investigating, but prosecuting the case to see it through to the end. And there will be people in the State Department as well as the media fighting tooth and claw the entire way to keep claiming that this is all some grand machination of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy to derail the hopes of an historic presidential candidate. But at some point the evidence has to build up to the point where the public can’t simply ignore it. So what’s next?

    Joe Biden… call your office.

    Clinton will never see an indictment brought against her. The reason is any criminal referral from the FBI to the Justice Department has to pass through four “loyal Democrat women — Assistant Attorney General Leslie Caldwell, who heads the department’s criminal division; Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates; Attorney General Loretta Lynch; and top White House adviser Valerie Jarrett.” If the case ever went this far, it will be plea bargained down to a misdemeanor punishable by fines.

    Government officials, like Clinton, break the law and jeopardize the security of the nation, denies wrong-doing, and lies about the entire incident with an almost impunity. Individuals at the State Department knew about this all along and lied to the American people. It’s the old, “rules for thee but not for me” mentality that should infuriate every American in the nation.
