According to a Daily Caller report, investigators from the State Department reviewing Hillary Clinton’s use of a private home email server during her time as Secretary of State found almost 600 security violations that broke agency policy.
The investigation, which concluded Sept. 6, found 38 different people accountable for 91 security violations, 497 more violations were uncovered but no certain individuals were found accountable.
The 497 violations that unaccounted for were due to the duration of the investigation. Many subjects of the probe, including Clinton and her close aides, left the State Department by the time the investigation began.
Although the FBI revealed that thousands of the emails on Clinton’s home server contained some level of classified info, and some were even classified as top secret – the highest level of classification – investigators claimed there was “no persuasive evidence” of “systemic, deliberate mishandling of classified information”.
A month after her email review concluded, it seems Hillary Clinton is attempting to deflect and curry headlines in her favor. Clinton claimed that Tulsi Gabbard is being groomed by Moscow to run as a third-party candidate in 2020 to help Trump secure his re-election win.
Clinton revealed this theory on Campaign HQ, a podcast hosted by David Plouffe, who was Obama’s campaign manager in 2008. Clinton claimed that Russia has “their eye on somebody who is… in the Democratic primary and… grooming her to be the third-party candidate” and continued on her tirade, referring to Gabbard but not mentioning her by name:
She is a favorite of the Russians. They have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far. That’s assuming Jill Stein will give it up, which she might not because she is also a Russian asset. They know they can’t win without a third-party candidate, and so I do not know who it’s going to be, but I can guarantee you they will have a vigorous third-party challenge in the key states that they most need it.Hillary Clinton
Somehow, Clinton believes that a retry on the tried and asinine tactics she used against Trump in 2016 will have any impact on the 2020 race. Hillary once again confirms her status as Establishment jockey, fully believing that her opinions or claims still carry weight or integrity in today’s discourse. The mainstream media completely clowned themselves pursuing Russia as a scapegoat and infallible boogeyman to the American public – and if Clinton wants to go down the same route, she is more than welcome to.
