Hillary Knew About BlackBerry Risk

Trying to be objective as I can, it is remarkable that Judicial Watch, a nonprofit educational foundation, is the national leader in uncovering key information about the conduct of the nation’s most significant public figure — Hillary Clinton.

We are still uncovering Hillary Clinton’s emails, for example, the existence of which had previously been unknown — and which could have significant criminal ramifications for Mrs. Clinton.

These new emails are among the 296 pages of State Department documents we released last week. They include a February 27, 2009, email in which Clinton apologized to health care activist/physician Mark Hyman for failing to respond to a message because, “no blackberrycontact permitted in my office.”

The new documents also contain a February 22, 2009, email exchange between Clinton and her then-Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills, trying to communicate over a secure line after Clinton returned from a trip (evidently to Asia). Unable to set up a secure communication, Clinton told Mills, “I called ops and they gave me your ‘secure’ cells . . . but only got a high-pitched whining sound.”

When Mills suggested that Clinton try the secure line again, Clinton wrote back, “I give up. Call me on my home #.”

The previously unreleased Clinton emails date back as far as January 2009 and further contradict statements by Hillary Clinton that, “as far as she knew,” all of her government emails were turned over to the State Department and that she did not use her clintonemail.com system until March 18, 2009.

The newly obtained emails cover topics such as: the administration’s Iran policy; Obama’s stimulus program; the sharing of “management issues” with “Maggie” Williams, former campaign manager for Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign; confusion over voice mail versus text messages; image coaching from 2008 campaign advisor Doug Hattaway; and a thank you note from Mark Hyman for “opening the door” for a Senate hearing on functional medicine; as well an email detailing incoming calls from China and Russia.

The new Clinton documents also include a censored email that shows Clinton and Cheryl Mills were contacted by Maria Haley, a longtime Clinton aide (since deceased) who was implicated the Chinagate scandal. (The Washington Examiner also picked up on how the emails show Clinton helped the corrupt Steven Rattner get a job in the Obama administration as Car Czar.

All these documents were obtained in response to a court order from a May 5, 2015, lawsuit filed against the State Department (Judicial Watch, Inc. v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:15-cv-00684)) after it failed to respond to a March 18 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request seeking: All emails of official State Department business received or sent by former Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin from January 1, 2009 through February 1, 2013 using a non-“state.gov” email address.

An email from former Democratic National Committee Treasurer Andrew Tobias asks top Clinton aide Huma Abedin to pass along to the secretary his idea for restoring U.S. prestige abroad. Tobias recommended serving a billion dollars a year of “complementary hot chocolate, iced tea, and lemonade” to international tourists standing in line at U.S. airports.

According to Tobias, the refreshments would generate “substantial international goodwill.” The State Department records indicate Abedin printed out and forwarded the emails. (Mr. Tobias shows up today in a blockbuster Wall Street Journal report documenting yet more corruption at the racketeering organization known as the Clinton Foundation.)

You will recall that in March we released Clinton State Department emails dating from February 2009 that also call into question her statements about her emails. Those emails contained more evidence of the battle among security officials in the State Department, National Security Administration, Clinton and her staff over attempts to obtain secure Blackberrys.

This drip-drip of new Clinton emails show Hillary Clinton could not care less about the security of her communications. How many other smoking-gun emails are Hillary Clinton and her co-conspirators in the Obama administration hiding from the American people?

Let’s hope honest investigators in the FBI and any principled prosecutors in the Justice Department are following Judicial Watch’s work.

Tom Fitton is the president of Judicial Watch. He is a nationally recognized expert on government corruption. A former talk radio and television host and analyst, Tom is well known across the country as a national spokesperson for the conservative cause. He has been quoted in Time, Vanity Fair, The Washington Post, The New York Times, and most every other major newspaper in the country. For more of his reports, Go Here Now.
