FBI Report Shows Hillary's Mishandling Of Classified Info 'Potentially Damaging' To U.S.

November 03, 2016Nov 03, 2016

The FBI recently released somewhat redacted notes of their criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton's e-mail scandals. What we're finding as we read through hundreds of pages of reports is staggering. A reader of these reports can only conclude extreme incompetence or deliberate skirting of security protocols when it comes to Hillary's and her staff's mishandling of classified information.

Here is our Part 6, which covers part of the FBI's third report:

— An individual whose name has been redacted expressed concern to Bryan Pagliano (granted FBI immunity) for setting up an unsecured, personal e-mail server for Hillary. He didn't believe Pagliano could make Hillary's server as secure as the official State Department servers. His concern was ignored.
— Hillary's top aide Huma Abedin confirmed that when Hillary got her personal e-mail address, Hillary's staff notified the White House so that Obama could receive e-mails from Hillary. That was necessary because Obama's Blackberry was setup to only receive e-mails from approved addresses. What this means is, the White House knew Hillary wasn't using an approved channel to communicate with the president. Abedin even questioned once why classified information was being sent to Hillary by the president on that unsecured channel.
— Hillary's server techs Justin Cooper and Pagliano argued over better ways to boost the security of Hillay's e-mail servers but did not implement many of their recommendations despite numerous hacking attempts they detected.
— When Pagliano was warned by the State Department about potential records issues with Hillary using a private server, he relayed the warning to Hillary's aide Cheryl Mills (granted FBI immunity). He said she blew off the warning.
— Among the classified e-mails on Hillary's personal server were e-mails coordinating activities in Benghazi. CIA Deputy Director Michael Morell was shown a number of those e-mails. In some cases, he said the information contained in them would not have compromised national security if it had gotten hacked and released to foreign groups. In another case, he said it wouldn't have caused "horrible" damage. In another case, he acknowledged that it would "potentially be damaging to the operation."

And there's plenty more. We've outlined some of the other devastating highlights of the FBI report in our Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, and Part 5 stories.
