State Department Concludes Clinton Email Review, Says It Found Nearly 600 Security Violations

http://dailycaller.com/

State Department investigators probing Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server as secretary of state discovered nearly 600 security incidents that violated agency policy, according to a report the Daily Caller News Foundation obtained.

The investigation, conducted by the State Department’s Bureau of Diplomatic Security, found 38 individuals were culpable for 91 security violations. Another 497 violations were found, but no individuals were found culpable in those incidents.

The investigation concluded Sept. 6, and to the report, dated Sept. 13.

The investigation sought to determine if the exchange of emails on Clinton’s server “represented failure to properly safeguard classified information” and whether any individuals at State were culpable for any of the failures.

Clinton exchanged more than 60,000 emails on a private email account hosted on a server that she kept at her residence in New York. She emailed frequently with longtime aides Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills, Jake Sullivan, and an outside adviser, Sidney Blumenthal.

The FBI investigated whether Clinton mishandled classified information by using the server. Former FBI Director James Comey announced July 5, 2016, that he would not be recommending charges against Clinton over the server, though he did say that she was “extremely careless” in using an off-the-books email system.

The FBI determined that thousands of emails on Clinton’s server contained some level of classified information. Some of those emails were found to have information classified as top secret, the highest level of classification.

State Department investigators reviewed all of Clinton’s emails, obtained hundreds of statements, and conducted dozens of in-person interviews with current and former State Department officials, according to the report.

Investigators determined that personal email use to conduct official State Department business “represented an increased risk of unauthorized disclosure.” Clinton’s use of the private server “added an increased degree of risk of compromise as a private system lacks the network monitoring and intrusion detection capabilities of State Department networks,” the report says.

Investigators said there was “no persuasive evidence” of “systemic, deliberate mishandling of classified information.”

One reason that investigators were unable to assign culpability in the 497 incidents was because of the duration of the investigation. Many of the subjects of the probe, including Clinton and her circle of aides, has left the State Department by the time the investigation began.

  1. Hillary clinton was no more than a spy for the enemies of this country, just like Obama. They wanted a coup. If those people are not picked up for treason, then no on should be. There are those wanting to hand this country over to foreigners who are interested in seeing this country fail. We are at war whether people realize it or not.

  2. AS WE ALL KNOW, SHE WILL WALK FREE. YOU REALL NOW MUST BELIEVE IN THE AMERICAN JUSTICE SYSTEM. THAT ALL ARE EQUAL UNDER THE LAW. EXCEPT FOR YOU KNOW WHO???

    KEEP AMERICAN GREAT VOTE FOR THE RICH AND THE CROOKS.

  3. Well, I see she already has an orange pantsuit! Good, I hope she nice.

  4. I like seeing her in orange. Now just add some handcuffs and she will be all dressed for her new career as a convicted criminal.

  5. I hear more excuses about why Hillary will never have to face any discipline for what she does or has done. The rest of us would lose our freedoms.

  6. Hilary and others set up private servers routinely . This allows them to operate outside the Freedom Of Information Act. This act was intended to stop federal employees etc from conducting illegal activities and leaving discoverable footprints in the documents obtained by FISA requests. The FBI knew this, half of the FBI brass have private servers. It worked for Hilary as she simply delete the incriminating evidence with Beach bit. Pay for play lives on everywhere in the Fed. They protect each other very well.

  7. When will Clinton be tried for HER crimes against Americans?
