Blog/2016 U.S. Presidential Election
Posted Oct 26, 2016 by Martin Armstrong
The Wall Street Journal broke the story on Sunday night about the connections surfacing between the Democrats and Jill Mcabe’s run for the Senate who is the wife of one of the top FBI investigators into the Hillary emails. According to the Journal, the finance records show Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s PAC gave $467,500 to Jill McCabe’s 2015 state Senate campaign. Then the Virginia Democratic Party itself spent an additional $207,788 on her campaign. McCabe, who ended up losing to the Republican incumbent, is married to Andrew McCabe, the FBI’s deputy director.
On top of all that, now an email from 2015 reveals Hillary’s top aide and lawyer Cheryl Mills wrote to Podesta, “we need to clean this up,” referencing the communications between President Obama and Hillary Clinton where she was clearly using her private server. “He has emails from her – they do not say state.gov,” Mills wrote.
In a CBS interview in March 2015, Obama was bluntly asked when he first learned about Clinton’s private server that she used as Secretary of State. He answered: “The same time everybody else learned it through news reports.”
However, Obama clearly signed this memorandum to which Hillary would have been a party. Her claiming it was allowed is plain out right a lie. There are emails from Obama to Hillary’s private server, proving he knew what she was doing. Clinton keeps trying to dodge the criticism and distort the degree to which the rules have changed since previous secretaries of state were in office. On August 24, 2012, Obama signed a directive to the heads of the executive departments, which would have included Hillary (Directive to Hillary 2012 m-12-18). Hillary was Secretary of State between 2009 and 2013. Therefore, Obama knew she had a private email server and sent this directive, which she IGNORED. This latest email from Mills to Podesta shows Hillary was outside of the rules and law.
Podesta wrote in return to use Executive Privilege to cover-up the issue just like Richard Nixon. “Think we should hold emails to and from potus? That’s the heart of his exec privilege. We could get them to ask for that. They may not care, but I(t) seems like they will.”
Unquestionably. Trump is right. We have to “drain the swamp” in Washington, DC.
