Oh my.

The phrase “dead to rights” has a number of possible origins, my favorite being the George Matsell version:

DEAD TO RIGHTS. Positively guilty, and no way of getting clear.

You can actually read Matsell’s entire book here.

Hillary Clinton has been caught lying dead to rights. We’ve watched for the last couple of years as her email story has come undone piece by piece.

Clinton’s stories continue to evolve. In 2007 having a secret email account was “shredding the Constitution.” Back on March 10 of last year, there was no classified information on her server:

“I did not email any classified material to anyone on my email; there is no classified material.”

Until there was. More than 1300 of them. Then her pleadings changed.

“I am confident that I never sent nor received any information that was classified at the time it was sent and received.”

She couldn’t remember how many devices she actually used.

18 emails were exchanged between Obama and Clinton but he only learned of that from the media.

She instructed her aides to change the markings on her emails. Most importantly, she lied through her teeth, and these are not little white lies. They’re YUGE. From the AP:

CLINTON: “What I did was allowed. It was allowed by the State Department. The State Department has confirmed that.” — AP interview, September.

THE REPORT: “No evidence” that Clinton asked for or received approval to conduct official government business on a personal email account run through a private server in her New York home. According to top State Department officials interviewed for the investigation, the departments that oversee security “did not — and would not — approve” her use of a personal account because of security concerns.

Clinton has changed her account since the report came out. On Thursday, she told CNN “I thought it was allowed. I knew past secretaries of state used personal email.”

Colin Powell was the only secretary of state who used personal email for work, but not to the extent she did, and he did not use a private server.

CLINTON: “It was fully above board. Everybody in the government with whom I emailed knew that I was using a personal email.” — AP interview, September.

CLINTON: “The people in the government knew that I was using a personal account . the people I was emailing to on the dot gov system certainly knew and they would respond to me on my personal email.” — NBC News interview, September.

THE REPORT: According to the findings, it’s unclear how widespread knowledge was about Clinton’s use of a personal account. Though Clinton’s use of a private email was discussed with some in her agency, senior department officials who worked for her, including the undersecretary responsible for security, said they were not asked to approve or review the use of her private server.

The officials also said they were “unaware of the scope or extent” of her email practices, even though Clinton exchanged hundreds of thousands of messages with people in government from her personal account.

CLINTON: “In the fall, I think it was October of last year (2014), the State Department sent a letter to previous secretaries of state asking for help with their record-keeping, in part because of the technical problems that they knew they had to deal with. And they asked that we, all of us, go through our e-mails to determine what was work-related and to provide that for them.” — NBC News, September.

THE REPORT: While it’s true that the State Department requested records from former secretaries of state in November 2014, the report says the department raised concerns about Clinton’s compliance with federal record-keeping laws years earlier, and the attention did not appear welcome.

Two employees in the Office of Information Resources Management discussed concerns about her use of a personal email account in separate 2010 meetings. One of the employees stressed in one of the meetings that the information being transmitted needed to be preserved to satisfy federal records laws.

They were instructed by the director of the department “never to speak of the Secretary’s personal email system again,” according to the report.

___

CLINTON: “I think last August I made it clear I’m more than ready to talk to anybody anytime. — CBS News interview in May.

THE REPORT: Clinton declined through her lawyer to be interviewed for the report. Four other secretaries of state participated: John Kerry, Madeleine Albright, Condoleezza Rice and Colin Powell. She now says: “everything I had to say was out there.”

But she has said she will speak to the FBI as part of a separate criminal investigation into possible security breaches related to her private server.

In October, she testified about the issue before the House committee investigating the 2012 Benghazi attacks.

Lies upon lies upon lies.

She desperately wanted to avoid sunlight:

“Let’s get separate address or device but I don’t want any risk of the personal being accessible,” Clinton wrote in a November 2010 email to Huma Abedin, a longtime aide and then-deputy chief of staff for operations.

Despite protestations from the Clinton camp, comparisons to Colin Powell fall far short of the mark:

Investigators also concluded that former Secretary of State Colin Powell, who used a personal email as well, likewise did not follow record keeping laws. However, the report notes significant difference in their circumstances: During Powell’s tenure, State’s capacity to email people outside the department was limited. He said he needed it to reach people who didn’t work at State. The IG also noted that he used email less frequently than Clinton and top technology officials were aware of his personal email use.

Now the obama White House is fighting to keep Clinton from being deposed, making it appear they too have something to hide. State. Clinton’s cavalier handling of classified material may also have compromised military operations. At least two State IT employees were told never to talk of her private server. Clinton refused a specially designed secure phone from the NSA and acknowledged the risk of using a private Blackberry phone.

When you’ve lost Chuck Todd….

But the host was not buying, he said in his discussion with Mitchell.

“What was the most logical reason to do this?” Todd asked rhetorically.

“Convenience isn’t it because it’s not a convenient thing to have a server in your house. No, it’s making it so that it’s outside the reach of the federal records law. You cannot look at it any other way. That’s the only logical reason to do it.”

Indeed. I continue to believe Clinton is desperate to keep us from learning what we think- that she used her position as SoS to enrich herself and her husband by doling out government favors. Maybe she’s afraid of us finding out what she did as “Goldman Sachs’ partner in government.

The entire OIG report is here.

And to restate:  “Clinton and her top staff did not cooperate with the investigation.”

Shocking.

“What I did was allowed. It was allowed by the State Department. The State Department has confirmed that.”

Dead to rights. Dead. Dead. Dead.

 

BTW, Clinton has been disappearing emails since she was First Lady

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.

    Tip of the iceberg. Fast and Furious. Refusal of the administration to co-operate with the investigation. IRS, same thing. Obama lies at every turn. Reid openly lied as to Romney’s taxes (or income, I forget which) and was brazenly proud of it. And of course let’s not forget the “it was the video” lie!

    The list goes on and on and of course Hillary is right there amongst them. And why not. Her sleaze ball husband got away with all sorts of stuff, the Whitewater records magically appeared in the White House with no repercussions and so on.

    The story here really isn’t the fact that the witch out right got caught in her lies (and let’s not forget, people died because of her lies and deceit). The real story is the following question.

    When did it become permissible to accept the lies and worse of the scumbag politicians of both parties? Think of this! Well over 50% of the Democrats, even though they despise her personally are willing to overlook her criminal behavior and loudly support this wench! Please note here, I’m not only dumping on Hillary here. Boehner, Ryan, McConnel and more Republicans as well as the leftist Democrats have openly lied to their constituents time and time again yet the brain dead electorate continues to vote this scum in, consequences be damned!

    The cancer that is the acceptance of lies and more is destroying this country. You mention she lost Chuck Todd as to this story, yet even now the corrupt compromised media is twisting things to support her, propaganda of course being useful in leading the leemings that are unfortunately now the electorate.

    On this Memorial Day weekend, wouldn’t it be great if we honored our fighting men and women and the losses taken by them and their families to give us and protect this country by beginning the process of cleaning house beginning with the reprehensible liars of all ilk in our government?

    Hillary lied! Obama lied. The head of the IRS lied! holder lied! Boehner lied! Yet in the long run, does the majority even care anymore or is the hands out, Socialist indoctrinated culture at the point where we who care do not have a chance of saving this country?

    Hillary and all of them are unfortunately a reflection of what we as a country are becoming if in fact we have not already become a relic of what we were as the greatest country on earth! And we have ourselves to blame for this.

    It is absolutely mind boggling the number of people that can accept such a damned liar as a candidate. Truly, with all partisanship and bias aside, has there EVER been anyone running for President and has actually made it this far that was a big a liar as she is? I don’t think so.

    Also amazing is that the vast majority of her supporters think that selecting her promise that benefits them the most, among a wide range of conflicting and opposing promises, is going to benefit from a Hillary Presidency. Little are they aware that Hillary will only do what benefits Hillary. This is all she has ever done and her actions as First Lady, Bill’s wife, Senator and Secretary of State show this explicitly.

    Absolutely unbelievable that anyone listens to a word she says, but, liberals… what are you gonna do?

    Marcel Lazar, AKA the hacker called Guccifer, plead guilty to cybercrime, likely as part of deal with federal prosecutors.
    He then revealed that he had stored large numbers of documents on Google Drive.
    He is making a deal with the FBI and federal prosecutors.
    He said he had more material in the cloud which he would share with security officials “when the time is right”.
    Can his saved hacks of Hillary’s email connect the dots between her State Dept actions and the Clinton Global Initiative’s cash flow from foreign powers?

    Simon & Garfunkel were prescient:

    Sitting on a sofa on a Sunday afternoon
    Going to the candidates debate
    Laugh about it shout about when you got to choose
    Every way you look at it you lose

    Where have you gone Joe DiMaggio
    A nation turns its lonely eyes to you?
    Woo woo woo,
    What’s that you say Mrs. Robinson?
    Joltin’ Joe has left and gone away

    Technically correct, it was approved by the state department, as in she was the state departments authorization of it.

    I think that the main reason that incumbents get reelected so often is lethargy, voters don’t want change, they want things to continue as they are.
    The NSA is spying on citizens? It has no perceptible effect on most people’s daily lives.
    High taxes? Most people are unaware of them, they’re well hidden. You get your paycheck only after taxes are taken out, you pay for your purchases after the sales tax has been added, on April 15 most people get a refund.
    And they never see the corporate taxes that are added to the price of everything that they purchase, driving prices up.
    Disasters overseas? Terrorist attacks? Other people, far away.
    And so on. Government abuse is not in the voters’ faces, so they can ignore it, and vote to keep things the same.
    Most people don’t want change, and hope that they can continue to live their lives just as they have been.

    Uh, no. The queen doesn’t get to set the rules. You’ve really got to read the articles.

    To top it off, Clinton took more effort and exerted more control to protect her personal, private emails than she did for government emails.

    Did the people that combed through her emails to delete “personal” ones have the security clearance to see the emails that were saved for the government?

    another vet

    @SouthernRoots: The answer to that question can be found by examining the access roster she maintained for her SCIF. The number of times they frequented her SCIF can be found by examining her log. Both are part of the security requirements for operating a facility where TS material is stored.
