Hillary Clinton – The Shameless Plot For Exoneration and the Framing of An Incoming President is the Real Collusion Story – PART 1

On Friday, April 27, 2018 the House Intelligence Committee officially declared the end of its Russia probe, saying in its final report that it found no evidence that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia in the 2016 presidential campaign. But yet, the probe by Robert Mueller continues. Why?

Because this story is about how some of the most senior career civil servants in our government—including the Department of Justice figureheads—violated the law, committed high crimes and misdemeanors, covered up crimes by a presidential candidate, and how they ultimately tried to frame an incoming president with a fictitious Russian conspiracy concoction.

In short, this ordeal is a classic example of denial, projection, and accusations without proof. Trump’s enemies both inside and outside of the government wove a sinister plot with the direct intent of taking him down. Oh, what tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive!

In short, when you connect the dots, you form a very clear picture of the only collusion that exists: The collusion between the Obama administration, the Department of Justice, the Clinton campaign, the DNC, and the opposition research firm Fusion GPS.

You know, there was a time when American intelligence agencies used to spy on the Russians. Now they spy on us. The NSA has the capability to intercept and record any cellular phone call, email or text message, and to hell with your constitutional rights to privacy and free speech. Which is a critical piece of information when you consider that by weaponizing our intelligence agencies, Barack Obama laid the groundwork for one of the most egregious crimes of the century.

It all started way back on July 5, 2016 in Charlotte, NC. It was here that Obama delivered his first “stump” speech for the Clinton campaign. While he alluded to running a race and passing the baton, Obama was actually a lot less certain about the race than he was letting on.

You see, while Hillary Clinton was up in the polls, there was no doubt, in anyone’s mind, that she was vulnerable. Just three weeks earlier, on June 15th, Guccifer 2.0, a cyber-hacker, hacked into the Democratic National Committee server and published a treasure trove of emails. These emails proved, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that the accusations of the Bernie Sanders team were true. The DNC had in fact conspired with the Clinton campaign to undermine the Sanders campaign and steal the nomination.

This could not have come at a worse time. Clinton was, at that very moment, expecting the entire Democratic Party to unite behind her. But now, with the release of those emails, it appeared as if the Berny Sanders supporters were going to go into full revolt.

But this pending revolution was not the only concern Obama needed to worry about. Obama needed to deflect attention away for the James Comey press conference basically exonerating Clinton of any wrongdoing with her private email server. But the fact was that Comey’s statement was not an exoneration, but merely a prosecutorial restraint.

The twin hacking debacle (the DNC server and then her own) was the proverbial anchor around Hillary’s neck; they were two sides of the same coin.

You see, at the time, both of her opponents (Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump) were painting a picture to the American public that Clinton was a part of Wall Street and bought and paid for. She was, in fact, an “establishment” candidate. In short, Hillary was the greatest defender and the primary beneficiary of a corrupt and rigged political and financial system. Which leads to another albatross around Hillary’s neck: The Clinton Foundation.

Therein was a problem. Comey’s public announcement played directly into the image that Bernie Sanders’ following was painting. In short, there was now no denying that the bad taste in people’s mouths was because laws don’t apply to Hillary Clinton, simply because she is Hillary Clinton. Laws are for the “deplorables.”

Look, I served in communications for the United States Navy for almost two decades. I handled classified communications, classified emails, KEYMAT, and held a TS clearance.  I can tell you, unequivocally, that “intent” has nothing to do with the crime, despite Comey’s or Obama’s statement to the contrary.

But ignoring that for a second, let’s just play in Democrat fantasyland for a moment and accept that some super-slick lawyer in the Department of Justice discovered some loophole and superficial rationale for applying Obama’s fiction of “no intent.” The fact remains that the sheer volume of classified material the FBI recovered from her server is all the proof of intent you need. Seriously, even Comey had to admit that there were fifty-two different email chains…all of which contain classified information.

There is a simple rule in the military (government) about the use of personal computers and servers. It’s this: you don’t put personal data and documents on government computers and you don’t put government business on personal computers.  I have seen people go to prison for less, and yet Hillary Clinton is given a pass? Why? Because she is Hillary Clinton.

In case you are not aware, the military and the government run their networks the same way. The Unclassified, Secret, and Top Secret networks are all physically separate networks. Hell, we even color code the network cables so as not to confuse users. Green cables low-side, red cables high-side (low side = unclassified; high-side = classified).

Each network has its own server and hard drives. It is physically impossible to cut and paste a classified document into an unclassified email. There is no way to do this by “accident.” It requires intent. You have to intend to do it, with unmistakable purpose, and then do it.

In Hillary Clinton’s case, a classified document appeared in an unclassified email. That means someone had to physically download the classified document into a thumb drive and then manually load it into the unclassified network. If that doesn’t establish intent then I don’t know what will.

But it gets worse. One of Clinton’s emails suggests that this practice of downloading and uploading documents was a routine activity in her office.

Case in point: “In June 2011, a staffer encountered difficulty transmitting a document to her by means of a classified system. An impatient Clinton instructed him to strip the classified markings from the document and send it on as an unclassified email. ‘Turn into non-paper with no identifying heading and send non-secure,’ Clinton instructed.”

This is a direct violation of more federal laws and more regulations than I care to count. But hey, this is Hillary Clinton we’re talking about. This practice was so commonplace that her underlings started getting careless.

According to the FBI, on three separate occasions, staffers failed to strip the “non-papers” of classified markings. In fact, the FBI recovered one email that still contained the “C” classification in parenthesis in the margin. For anyone who has ever worked with classified material you know this is an obvious sign that the corresponding paragraph was classified as “Confidential.”

But not Hillary. No way. When she was interviewed and FBI agents showed her the markings and asked her a very direct question as to whether she understood what the “C” meant, Hillary Clinton played stupid. I kid you not. Her answer to FBI investigators was that she simply assumed that the “C” was marking the item in an alphabetized list.

In the entire history of the world, I would make the argument, that this was the first time that an alphabetized list started with the letter “C” and had only one single item in it that needed to be alphabetized.

But Hillary was trapped. Any reasonable and plausible answer to the question would have constituted and proven “malicious intent.” Her only escape plan was the one that Obama had concocted. Read “collusion.” The narrative that was created was one of “well-intentioned” but “careless actions.” In other words, Hillary Clinton colluded with Obama and the Department of Justice to concoct a narrative to escape the albatross around her neck—the double server hack and the handling of classified material.

In short, she—with the full knowledge and consent of Obama—lied to federal investigators.

But so much for lying to federal investigators under oath. The liberal left and the deep state crucified others for less. Remember General Flynn?

But once again, Hillary Clinton gets a pass, simply because she is Hillary Clinton. Stay tuned for Part II…
