Andrew McCarthy: State Dept Can Find Hillary Documents

Tuesday, 17 Mar 2015 04:48 PM

The State Department could easily find the agreement Hillary Clinton was supposed to sign to hand over all official documents when she left the agency — if it wants to and if the document really exists, former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy says.

"There's probably 18 copies of it running around the State Department. It's not like they're chasing after the one little piece of paper. And it's been microfilmed and scanned and every which way but loose. So they can get their hands on it if they wanted to," McCarthy said Tuesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

McCarthy, a National Review columnist, said there are two possible answers on the State Department document and "neither one of them is good."

"Either she signed it and that's one set of problems or she didn't sign it and that's another set of problems that the State department is complicit in.

"It also leads to the natural question of what about the similar forms for people like Huma Abedin and the rest of Mrs. Clinton's closest advisers, who also by the way had accounts on this Clinton email account [and] email server."

On Tuesday, the State Department announced it had no record of Clinton signing a statement that she had handed over all unclassified documents involving official business when she left the agency in 2013.

State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said neither of Clinton's predecessors, Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice, signed a similar statement.

Clinton has been under fire after it was revealed that she had sometimes conducted government business on her private email account and home server.

McCarthy — a former assistant U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York and author of "Faithless Execution: Building the Political Case for Obama’s Impeachment," published by Encounter Books — said Abedin's separation agreement is particularly important.

"According to the way Mrs. Clinton and those around her describe Ms. Abedin, she was one of Mrs. Clinton's go-to advisers on the Middle East, which is really the issue that overwhelmed Mrs. Clinton's tenure at the State Department," McCarthy said.

"We have the very real specter here that if they had communications with one another, that neither end of those communications was ever captured by the government system.

"We also know that the thing that Mrs. Clinton said a week ago about retention on that score is also incorrect. It turns out that the State Department didn't systematically capture and retain every email that was kept on the government system."
