Dick Morris: Private Aide Ran Hillary's Email Server Without Security Clearance

A personal aide to former President Bill Clinton with no security clearance maintained Hillary Clinton's private email account and server — greatly jeopardizing national security, political strategist Dick Morris told Newsmax TV on Thursday.

The aide, Justin Cooper, served the Clinton Foundation while working for a private consulting firm, Teneo Holdings and Decision Sciences Corp., that served foreign dictators, Morris told "The Steve Malzberg Show" in an interview.

"He has no security clearance — and he had access to every single email either sent by or received by the secretary of state of the United States for four years," Morris said. "All of it, every one of them.

"Now, did he close his eyes — or did he keep them and read them all?"

"The point is that this woman jeopardized national security," Morris told Malzberg.

Morris learned about Cooper’s involvement with Clinton’s server in a footnote in the report released Wednesday by the State Department’s Office of Inspector General on the former first lady’s email use.

He outlined Cooper's role with Clinton's server in a blog post Thursday on his website.

A Pennsylvania native, Cooper worked first worked as an intern in the White House Office of Science and Technology before moving up to the Oval Office. He holds a bachelor's degree from American University and a law degree from Fordham University.

According to Morris, Cooper has no expertise in safeguarding computers. He initially opened and registered Hillary Clinton's private server — and twice suspected that the system had been hacked, according to the State Department's report.

In one of the cases, on Jan. 9, 2011, Cooper "notified the Secretary’s Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations [Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin] that he had to shut down the server because he believed 'someone was trying to hack us and while they did not get in I didn’t [sic] want to let them have the chance to,'" the report said.

In another email Cooper wrote later that day, he told Abedin that "we were attacked again so I shut [the server] down for a few min," according to the report.

The following day, according to the document, Abedin emailed another top Clinton aide urging them to not email "anything sensitive" to Clinton.

Abedin also offered to "explain more in person" — and the report said that she reported none of the hacking issues to the State Department, which was required.

The two hacking attempts occurred while Clinton was traveling in the United Arab Emirates, Serbia, Algeria and Bosnia — locations with questionable security operations, according to the report.

Morris noted that besides Cooper, Teneo paid Abedin — and even the former president once he left office.

"The company that this guy works for is a consulting firm that represents foreign countries, foreign dictators, foreign companies," he told Malzberg. "He's in possession of secure information and at the same time going out and pitching these companies to hire them to represent them.

"What a conflict of interest and what a potential of exposure of American secrets."
