A group of U.S. intelligence veterans is calling on President Obama to expedite the FBI review of former Secretary of State Clinton’s alleged email security violations so the public can assess this issue in a timely fashion.
MEMORANDUM FOR: The President
FROM: Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity
SUBJECT: Those “Damn Emails” – “Really a Concern”
By all indications, the FBI is slow-walking the investigation and mainstream media are soft-pedaling the issue. As things now stand, most Americans remain unaware of the import of this industrial-scale compromise of very sensitive national security information in Secretary Clinton’s emails.
ROBERT STEELE: I am among the co-signers, and quite proud to be in their company and to be one of a tiny handful of officers who have also signed both the major letters against torture. I do want to say that I believe that as good as the above letter is, it does not go far enough. Wayne Madsen has provided a larger perspective on his own, and I urge one and all to read his entire report. In my view, the Clinton Foundation has become the preferred front end for the “deep state” and Hillary Clinton was using the private server to conceal gross conflicts of interest as she sold US policy including US military interventions to the highest bidder — properly investigated this could easily qualify as treason. At best — and I am astonished that this so-called sophisticated woman did not realize that NSA as well as Russian and Romanian and Israeli officers were all over her emails — this is a gross conflict of interest. The only thing WORSE than Hillary Clinton as President would be Bill Clinton in charge of what is left of the economy he destroyed when he repealed the Glass-Steagal Act and unleashed Goldman Sachs with its sub-prime mortgage scams and its willful destruction of the economies of Iceland, Ireland, Greece, Portugal, Russia, and Spain, among the most obvious. There is every reason to believe that all other combinations — Biden-Warren, Trump-Whoever — will be just as corrupt, just as uncaring of the public interest. America is at a turning point in 2016, with a real opportunity to restore integrity to the entire electoral and governance system, and all indications are that we are going to blow it — the end of literacy, the triumph of spectacle, and Griftopia marches on. Shame on every citizen who stands silent while this goes forward.
The Republican-led House hearings on “Benghazi” never delved into how much of Clinton’s private intelligence and military operations were conducted outside the framework of the National Security Acts of 1947 and 1952. If Clinton was busy authorizing operations to remove Qaddafi and Assad outside of the system of Presidential Findings that govern U.S. government clandestine operations against foreign nations and interests, it would constitute treasonous activities on the part of the Secretary of State.
And for a little fun….
