You’re a fool if you think Hillary’s come clean about her emails

It all depends on your meaning of the word “certifies.” Hillary Clinton was supposed to have handed over all her government-related emails. At one time she claimed that she had already done so until her emails to and from Sid Blumenthal were outed. Now she has “certified under penalty of perjury” that she has handed them all over:

(CNN) — Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has told a federal judge that she has turned over all of her work-related emails to the State Department after she was ordered to certify that she had done so, a state department spokesman confirmed to CNN on Sunday.

This follows U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan ordering Clinton as well as two former top department aides to state under penalty of perjury they have produced all government records in their possession.

But in classic Clinton tradition:

While the State Department initially said Friday Clinton had not issued her certification, department spokesman Alec Gerlach said when her attorneys sent the document it initially went to officials on leave.

Clinton’s aides Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin ignored the order:

However, two aides to Clinton appear to have rebuffed parallel requests from U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan that they similarly certify that they’d turned over certain emails and other records in their possession relating to their work at State.

Last week, Sullivan ordered the State Department to ask Clinton, former Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills and former Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin to personally vouch that they’d turned over all records responsive to a Freedom of Information Act request the conservative group Judicial Watch filed seeking information on Abedin’s employment arrangements.

They know where the bodies are buried.

Now for the usual Hillary bullsh*t:

Clinton’s formal declaration may not satisfy her critics because while she has said she directed that all potential federal records in her private email account be turned over to her former agency, she can’t personally certify that the handover was complete because she left the actual sorting process to her attorneys.

Despite all the formalities, Clinton has certified absolutely nothing. Professor Bill Jacobson:

Let’s take a look as the many potential loopholes and outs Hillary has in the wording:

•“While I do not know what information may be “responsive”” — In other words, everything that follows is qualified by Hillary not knowing what she’s supposed to be producing.
•“I have directed” — so if it doesn’t get done, it’s not Hillary’s fault.
•“on clintonemail.com” — special emphasis on “on” — what does that mean to be “on” and email account?
•” in my custody” — usually I’ve seen wording much broader, “in my custody or under my control” or similar language.
•“were or potentially were federal records to be provided to the Department of State” — so only records that were to be provided by her to DoS are covered, but that’s not necessarily the universe of all federal or potentially federal records.

Any declaration under oath holds great risk. But Hillary’s lawyers have carefully worded her Declaration to admit to nothing, provide multiple ambiguities, and numerous “outs” should she be challenged.

I will continue to remind everyone that in 2007 Hillary asserted that having secret email accounts was “shredding the Constitution.” She knew it was wrong and she did wrong intentionally. Further, the assertion that information on her server wasn’t classified while it was on her server is entirely asinine. There is so much classified information on Clinton’s server the State Department claims it can’t keep up with the ordered release schedule. Anyone else (I.e. a Republican) pulling this would already be facing Federal charges.

Clinton has to hand over the server. That’s it. She is untrustworthy, dishonest and obviously unfit to handle classified information. We’ve had enough mendacity from the President over the last seven years to last anyone’s lifetime.

DrJohn has been a health care professional for more than 30 years. In addition to clinical practice he has done extensive research and has published widely with over 70 original articles and abstracts in the peer-reviewed literature. DrJohn is well known in his field and has lectured on every continent except for Antarctica. He has been married to the same wonderful lady for over 30 years and has three kids- two sons, both of whom are attorneys and one daughter on her way into the field of education. DrJohn was brought up with the concept that one can do well if one is prepared to work hard but nothing in life is guaranteed. Except for liberals being foolish.

    Dr J is still upset he got hosed by that fake article that said that two Inspector Generals were asking for a criminal investigation, He was sooooo upset when that was proved untrue.
    Dr J also asserted that Sen Menendez was guilty in the scandal involving the underage Dominican hookers. He has a long history of declaring guilt before the facts prove otherwise. and
    BENGHAZZI !!!
    As if a civillian could order the Army to “stand down”

    It must be pretty embarrassing to have to continually devise excuses for supporting such an unscrupulous, scandalous liar. I’m glad I don’t have to.

    There is a peculiar aspect to emails: they all have an origin and a destination. All of the Clinton emails were on the two. Thus it should be possible to trip up this typical Clinton perversion of the law with subpoenas.

    It is a shame that America and the world has to witness a prejudicial system of justice designed to keep people like Hillary out of prison and keep them on track for the White House. While her defense will work in federal court, the same silliness would not only get one of us convicted, but we would be facing a contempt charge as well.

    @john:

    Hmmmm….. “He” being, perhaps, Obama?

    Ferguson. Sandy Hook. Baltimore. Cambridge. IRS.

    Oh, yeah… Benghazi as well; blaming a video when they KNEW the facts, but decided to lie anyway.

    I’m surprised you would find fault with someone you thought was drawing conclusions recklessly.

    According to breaking news, Hillary had two (so far) Top Secret (above ”Classified,”) emails on her server.
    These were NOT labeled Top Secret AFTER she saw them, they were ALREADY Top Secret when she saw them on her private server.
    She is lying and parsing.
    Look at her wording carefully.
    She has no idea if or when another Sidney Blumenthal will turn over emails that contradict her official narrative.

    Edited to add:
    Breaking now:
    Hillary is turning her server over to investigators.

    Unfortunately they have had plenty of time to wipe the original drive, destroy it, and replace it with a new drive reinstall the operating system, and “restore” only the information they want to be found. (ie yoga emails).

    Whether camp Clinton was smart enough to do that, remains to be seen. The server should have been immediately confiscated and secured just as law enforcement does when investigating the common folk and small businesses who are suspected of possibly committing computer crimes.
