Two months of Hillary emails just before Benghazi are missing

In the series House of Cards, Claire Underwood is a highly ambitious, ruthless woman who will lie, cheat and steal to get what she wants and crush anyone in her way. People die around the Underwoods. She reminds one of another woman currently in the news.

A federal judge has exploded over the endless delaying of the Obama regime’s releasing of Hillary Clinton’s emails:

An irritated federal judge Thursday put the Hillary Clinton email scandal into stark terms, grilling the State Department on a pattern of delayed document releases that has turned a possible bureaucratic logjam into a major problem for the leading Democratic presidential contender.

U.S. District Court Judge Richard Leon, known for his blunt manner, said he simply did not understand why the State Department has dragged its feet on responses for emails in requests to the Freedom of Information Act.

“Now, any person should be able to review that in one day — one day,” the judge said, examining a request for just over 60 emails. “Even the least ambitious bureaucrat could do this.”

Leon articulated what has been a major concern of State Department critics who contend that the agency is dragging out responses to FOIA requests to protect Clinton, who served as secretary of state during Obama’s first term. The judge’s complaints echoed those of Hill Republicans, who have accused the agency of slow-walking document requests in its Benghazi investigation to protect Clinton.

And uh oh….there’s a two month gap in Hillary’s emails at a particularly curious time:

Among the hundreds of emails released by the State Department from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private account, there is a conspicuous two-month gap. So far, there are no emails between Clinton and her State Department staff during May and June 2012, a period of escalating violence in Libya leading up to the September 11 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi that left four Americans dead.

A State Department spokesman told The Daily Beast that for the year 2012, only those emails related to the security of the consulate or to the U.S. diplomatic presence in Libya were made public and turned over to a House committee investigating the fatal Benghazi assault. But if that’s true, then neither Clinton nor her staff communicated via email about the escalating dangers in Libya during those two crucial months. There were three attacks during that two-month period, including one that targeted the consulate. (Of course, email isn’t the only or even the preferred way State Department officials communicate about sensitive issues—especially if one of those officials is using a private server ill equipped to handle classified information.)

There were events taking place that demanded attention from the then Secretary of State:

Regarding the security situation in Libya, there was plenty for Clinton and her team to discuss via email. On May 22, 2012, the International Red Cross’s Benghazi office was hit by rocket-propelled grenades.

“The attack on the International Red Cross was another attack that also involved us and threats to the compound there in Benghazi,” testified Lieutenant Colonel Andrew Wood, a senior State Department security chief in Libya, (PDF) before the House Oversight Committee in October 2012.

Then, on June 6, an improvised explosive device detonated outside of the U.S. consulate, ripping a 12-foot-wide hole in the compound’s wall and prompting officials to release a public warning on “the fluid security situation in Libya.”

Yet the State Department has not produced any emails to or from Clinton about the improvised bomb.

Are we to believe that Hillary sent no emails during those two months? Interestingly, the missing emails intersect with Human Abedin:

On June 3, Abedin, a longtime Clinton aide and personal friend of the Clinton family, was given the status of a “special government employee,” which allowed her to stay on the State Department payroll while simultaneously working for the Clinton Foundation, Teneo, a consulting firm founded by Clinton confidant Doug Band, and as a private adviser to Clinton regarding her post-State Department transition.

Clinton claimed that she had turned over all her work-related emails. That has already proven to be a lie.

Around 5:30 Thursday evening, a courier from the State Department delivered a packet of documents to the offices of the House Select Committee on Benghazi. The documents contained an admission that Libya-related emails between Clinton and longtime associate Sidney Blumenthal that Blumenthal turned directly over to the Benghazi committee had not been given by Clinton to the State Department. The discovery of the emails proved that Clinton, contrary to her public claim, had not turned over all her emails “that could possibly be work related.”

This issue is not going away. The real House of Cards is going to fall- it is only a matter of time.

    Hillary has accomplished nothing substantial in her life. She’s been pushed along, coasting on her husband’s coattails, and every job she’s been given fizzled out into time-serving or overt disaster. Hillary constantly strikes attitudes and claims she’s “passionate” about this or that, but there’s never any sustained follow-through.

    If you don’t have an effective public persona, if you’re not a good speaker, if you don’t like to press the flesh, if you’re not nimble enough to deal with anything that comes along, then you are not a natural politician! And you sure aren’t going to learn it in your late 60s! The main point is that the ability to communicate with millions of people is a special talent, and Hillary pretty obviously lacks it

    I don’t see Hillary as even getting as far as the debates!

    I don’t think Hillary wants to be defeated, so what I’ve been predicting all along is that there will be a “health crisis,” and she will withdraw.

    Right now, her campaign is trying to change the headlines by releasing some new policy statement every day, but it’s not going to change the looming investigations into her conduct as Secretary of State. And the GOP is holding back its real anti-Hillary ammunition until she’s the nominee. Then we’ll all be plunged backward into the endless nightmare of the Clinton years–it will be pure hell!

    I agree with Camille Paglia that Hillary hasn’t got enough good communication skills to reach the extra voters she needs.
    But she is full of fight.
    I think Obama’s WH is dripping out scandal tidbits against her so she will drop out and Biden can get in.
    Her dropping out also might allow a Dem woman or even a Dem-of-color to get in.

    Hillary (and Huma’s) 2 month gap might mirror the tactic the IRS’ Lois Lerner’s sudden use of Instant Messaging IN PLACE OF e-mails.
    Cute, but even less secure.
    Recall Hillary actually said her private server was ”secure” because there were two secret service men around it!
    She’s a troglodyte who is trying to fly excuses that don’t fool anyone.

    Dr j. Your last post said that Obama hates Hillary
    Now you are saying that. He is trying to help her by delaying the emails ???? I can’t keep up with you when you change direction so fast

    “U.S. District Court Judge Richard Leon, known for his blunt manner, said he simply did not understand why the State Department has dragged its feet on responses for emails in requests to the Freedom of Information Act.” I’m guessing that was a rhetorical question.

    And some people like to criticize how long it takes to complete an investigation of these people.

    I wonder if the MSM would ever report on Hil if she killed someone and tried to hide it? What is it about libs that the media want to protect?? Chronic lying? Actions that would undermine our domestic and international security/ Like, Iran, Benghazi, borders, illegals, amnesty and domestically like NSA, IRS, and PP. What is it about liberal miscreants that the media wants to protect? A bunch of Stalins, Maos, and Hitlers. huh?

    @Bill: The State Department dragged its feet because they, like the rest of this administration, feels that they are above the law. Another federal judge had to threaten the IRS over not releasing documents pertaining to their scandal. Another judge was defied when Immigration processed an additional 2,000 illegals after being ordered to stop. Yet no consequences. Why? Because SCOTUS serves as their legal clerks, Congress is spineless, and enough of the American people either support them or don’t care. Strong indicators that this country is a waning republic.

    Obama is allowing Hillary a window to quit with a bit of dignity, if she goes that route.
    So far, she has chosen to fight instead.
    She must know he’s got plenty more goods on her.
    Bill must really miss the power.
    Hillary’s heart doesn’t seem to be in her campaign.
    It is a Potemkin campaign.
    It looks like a real campaign as long as you don’t look too close.

    @Bill:

    This is why Hillary MUST NOT become president. China, Russia, Iran, etc., all have the contents of her UNSECURED email server from long ago AND WILL BLACKMAIL HER BY THREATENING TO RELEASE INCRIMINATING EMAILS if she does NOT do what they want her to do.

    Odumbo has been and is probably being blackmailed as we speak. Notice China is building Islands in the ocean and Odumbo is doing NOTHING about it?

    Former Benghazi committee investigator accuses panel of targeting Clinton

    Targeting Clinton? What a surprise. Who would have thought?

    Republican House Leader Kevin McCarthy:

    “Everybody thought Hillary Clinton was unbeatable, right? But we put together a Benghazi special committee, a select committee. What are her numbers today? Her numbers are dropping. Why? Because she’s untrustable. But no one would’ve known any of that had happened had we not fought and made that happen.”

    He’s not just admitting it. He’s bragging about it.

    @Greg: Hillary has lied and lied and lied. Then she lies about the lies. She made herself a target.

    The FBI, IG for Intelligence and IG for the State Department are all investigating her. Who controls them? Did Obama suddenly turn Republican?
