Virtually every serious national security expert on record has admitted that Hillary Clinton compromised US national security by her use of an unsecured email server for highly confidential US State Department communications.

According to the New York Post and video news accounts of Bill Clinton’s recent address to a group of Asian journalists in Las Vegas, Bill Clinton actually called the FBI out and accused the law enforcement arm of the US Department of Justice of lying, despite its not recommending any charges against Clinton.

While there are no doubts with regard to the fact that Hillary Clinton broke at least 18 US Code regulations, and was recently let off the hook by the FBI via a highly publicized arrangement with the US Justice Department on an airport tarmac, Bill Clinton unloosed what could only be considered a desperate attack against the FBI.

Clinton’s attack came as a result of recent news releases detailing the fact that multiple FBI investigations have been initiated into the Clinton Foundation’s unseemly ties to Hillary Clinton’s US State Department.

In Bill Clinton’s attacks on the FBI, the New York Post writes:

“Bill Clinton is accusing the FBI director of serving up “the biggest load of bull I’ve ever heard” — marking the first significant public comments from the husband of the Democratic nominee on the scandal that’s plagued his wife’s campaign for over a year.”

“First of all, the FBI director said, when he testified before Congress, he had to amend his previous day’s statement that she had never received any emails marked classified,” Clinton told journalists at an Asian American Journalists Association meeting in Las Vegas on Friday, making a strong defense for Hillary Clinton.”

Fact-Check:

According to FBI transcripts, FBI Director Comey  did not retract nor did he amend, in any way, his press conference statements seen by millions.

The following transcript details Comey’s initial statements BEFORE he delivered his testimony in front of Congress:

From FBI Director Comey: “From the group of 30,000 e-mails returned to the State Department, 110 e-mails in 52 e-mail chains have been determined by the owning agency to contain classified information at the time they were sent or received.

Eight of those chains contained information that was Top Secret at the time they were sent; 36 chains contained Secret information at the time; and eight contained Confidential information, which is the lowest level of classification.

Separate from those, about 2,000 additional e-mails were “up-classified” to make them Confidential; the information in those had not been classified at the time the e-mails were sent.”

As for FBI Director Comey’s statements before congress, and classified email, Comey stated the following:

From Politico: “On Clinton’s statement that she did not email classified material to anyone, Comey responded, “There was classified email.” 

Fully Sourced Findings on Bill Clinton’s accusation of an FBI recant:Completely Untrue

Clinton also stated the following in his address on Friday:

“They saw two little notes with a ‘C’ on it — this is the biggest load of bull I’ve ever heard — that were about telephone calls that she needed to make. The State Department typically puts a little ‘C’ on it to discourage people from discussing it in public in the event the secretary of state, whoever it is, doesn’t make a telephone call. Does that sound threatening to the national security to you?”

In this excerpt, former President Bill Clinton, who was impeached by Congress for committing perjury in his testimony to a Grand Jury during his term as president, tries to untruthfully deflect FBI Comey’s statements, on the basis of traditional classified security markings used by the US government.

A “C” denotes the security rating of “Confidential,” meaning, the public dissemination or release of such Confidential material “would cause damage or be prejudicial to national security if publicly available.”

However, the duplicitous Clinton machine is now trying to re-language normal US security nomenclature as meaning something else, altogether, quite naturally.

With regard to Clinton’s argument, the simple fact is that one cannot scribble a “C” on an email denoting a “don’t or do make a call with this info” when the email resides solely in a digital environment, however, this does indeed reflect on Clinton’s summation of the voting public as being well beyond gullible, it seems.

Fully Sourced Findings on Bill Clinton’s “C” for Calls needed to be made assertion: Completely Untrue

Clinton’s flimsy excuses would seem to reflect the simple but documented fact that the former president has never used email, in his life, and probably for good reason, quite frankly.

While the Post writes that “Bill Clinton went on to say it is inconceivable his wife was threatening national security,” the fact remains that Bill Clinton is trying to refute the US government’s own expert testimony on these facts, when in fact, the US government actually came to wife Hillary’s overall defense, in deciding not to indict her.

The US Inspector General’s office stated the following in reference to their investigation of Clinton’s national security debacle:

“Hillary Clinton broke government rules by using a private email server without approval for her work as U.S. secretary of state, an internal government watchdog said on Wednesday.

The long-awaited report by the State Department inspector general was the first official audit of the controversial arrangement to be made public.”

One high-ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee had this to say:

“Some of the information contained in these emails is not merely about newspaper articles, but rather presents a risk to American national security and to our warriors assigned around the world,” he said. “Those tasked with addressing this lapse of security must assume that the Chinese, Russians, Iranians or hackers around the world have been able to obtain this information held outside of secure channels. This is expensive, time-consuming and presents risks all its own.”

Moreover, Clinton herself was found to be wanting in the sagacity of her statements with regard to the sending & receiving of highly sensitive government information to her own state department employees.

According to the website Politifact:

“It’s hard not to be skeptical of the narrative that Clinton was ignorant of the rules when the assistant secretary for diplomatic security sent a memo directly to Clinton in March 2011 that urged employees to “minimize the use of personal web email for business,” citing cyber security concerns. Three months later, a similar email went out to all staff, sent under Hillary Clinton’s name.”

Finally, with regard to Bill Clinton’s remaining attacks against the FBI, on the matter of Hillary Clinton’s damage to national security culpability, Husband Bill States:

“Do you really believe there are 300 career diplomats because that’s how many people were on these emails, all of whom were careless with national security? Do you believe that? Forget about Hillary, forget about her. Is that conceivable?”

Here, Bill Clinton creates yet another strawman argument that evaporates when analyzed at even minimal levels.

Indeed, since Hillary Clinton only used her own unsecured private server to correspond with various diplomats who she was inarguably the boss of, then the diplomats were forced to respond to Clinton, in kind, and under her leadership example by virtue of the simple fact that there were no other means of direct communication with the Secretary of State.

In fact, one top Clinton advisor did just that, when he was discovered to havesent “Top Secret” information via Clinton’s unsecured private server:

“Hillary Clinton’s top national security and foreign policy staffer Jake Sullivan was one of the authors of messages that appeared on several Hillary Clinton email chains recently labeled “top secret” by the State Department, according to multiple intelligence sources who have seen the correspondence.

Sullivan, then deputy chief of staff to the secretary of state, is now a senior policy adviser to the 2016 Democratic front-runner.”

In fact, Hillary Clinton’s use of an unsecured server, and her negligence in allowing foreign operatives access to  highly classified government intel is now believed, by numerous experts, to have cost the lives of several domestic andforeign operatives to the US government.

“Hillary Clinton recklessly discussed, in emails hosted on her private server, an Iranian nuclear scientist who was executed by Iran for treason, Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., said Sunday.

“I’m not going to comment on what he may or may not have done for the United States government, but in the emails that were on Hillary Clinton’s private server, there were conversations among her senior advisors about this gentleman,” he said on “Face the Nation.”

Cotton was speaking about Shahram Amiri, who gave information to the U.S. about Iran’s nuclear program.”

But, perhaps more importantly, in all of this at this juncture, is the fact that the latest revelations concerning Hillary Clinton’s gross negligence in matters of US national security and her Clinton Foundation foibles have apparently led to a detection of severe problems with internal polling groups to the Clinton campaign.

Not only that, Bill Clinton’s unwise if not completely desperate & sudden attack on the FBI,  points to Hillary Clinton’s campaign entering a potential political crisis mode, one that the media is either refusing to report or is yet completely unaware of.

Bill Clinton knows something, with regard to Hillary Clinton’s ongoing drama, that the American people don’t as of yet, and he’s reacting to it rather harshly, make no mistake.

Moreover, with the latest week of the mainstream media’s raping of Donald Trump, while serially slanting presidential polls, and trying to hide the culmination of problems gathering for Hillary Clinton, it seems clear that the dam may be about to break on both Clinton’s campaign and her increasingly desperate US political establishment.

That is if the dam has not yet already broke.

The thing to remember is the fact that presidential campaigns are like roller-coaster rides and Trump’s recent circuit has been a bit rough, while Hillary’s has been cushioned by the media, but, many can sense that things are about to change.

In other words, Trump is doing far better than the media is letting on–even while Hillary is doing far worse, on that same note, and those facts will soon, no doubt, be making it out into the light of day.
