The New York Police Department Special Victims Bureau have gathered enough new information to pressure the FBI to open an investigation which can only be described as a plot coming straight from a “House of Cards” episode.
While New York Attorney Preet Bharara was investigating Anthony Weiner sexting a 17-year old nude pictures, Bharara uncovered emails which opened an investigation into the Clinton Foundation as well as reopening a joint FBI investigation on the Hillary Clinton private server investigation.
Attorney Bharara sent a warrant for Weiner’s devices in early October which uncovered a folder within his laptop labeled “Life insurance,” Bharara explained in a press statement sent to multiple media outlets.
A few things are clear; the FBI reopened Clinton’s private email server investigation after the NYPD uncovered new evidence pertaining to Clinton, placing hundreds of thousands of emails under federal protection and jurisdiction.
NYPD detectives and a NYPD Chief, the department’s highest rank under Commissioner, said anonymously that “if the FBI and Justice Department fail to garner timely indictments against Clinton, NYPD will go public with the damaging emails that are now in the hands of FBI Director James Comey and many FBI field offices.”
XM Radio host Alex Marlow suggests on his radio program that NYPD detectives who are in possession of these copies might not want their identity known for security reasons.
If one document is found to have classified State Department material within Weiner’s “life insurance” folder, someone who does not have clearance for classified material, is evidence of gross negligence and breaks multiple federal laws.
Executive Order 13526 and Title 18 U.S. Code § 793 paragraph (f) both explain how sharing classified documents outside of secure means is unlawful and anyone convicted can face ten years in prison.
Section 1236.22 of the 2009 Federal Records Act states, “agencies that allow employees to send and receive official electronic mail messages using a system not operated by the agency must ensure that Federal records sent or received on such systems are preserved in the appropriate agency record keeping system.”
MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell has said that, “Hillary Clinton’s system was designed to defy Freedom of Information Act requests, which is designed to defy the law.”
On October 30th Bret Baier, a political anchor for Fox News, tweeted out, “two sources say Weiner is cooperating w/ FBI- & co-owned laptop. Also NY FBI had info for a few weeks – pressure was building.”
Baier stated on Nov. 3, “we’ve learned that her server had been hacked and a 99% accuracy that it had been hacked by at least five foreign intelligence agencies, and they believe things have been taken from that.”
Chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security Michael McCaul said also on Nov. 3, “Hillary has had seven SAP (Special Access Programs) on these devices. Those are the most classified, sensitive, and secretive material in the federal government. Many of them contain covert operation. James Comey confirmed to Congress that foreign governments had access to Clinton’s server. In my opinion, frankly, it’s treason.”
In my opinion the only way Hillary escapes an indictment suggestion from the FBI is either through a pardon by Obama or Trump losing the election.
Either way, history will be made on Nov. 8 – the first presidential candidate ever to have their charity organization be under a criminal FBI investigation during a presidential election.
