First let me make this “public service announcement.” The online company review site “yelp” only post negative reviews for free – darn if they don’t try to extort a “fee” from businesses if a positive review happens to be available. I couldn’t believe that until I checked with a favorite local business and was assured this was true. Consider this “fee” policy when on this site.

Judicial Watch has released details from newly obtained documents forced out of the grasp of the Obama Department of State through yet another in the never ending series of Freedom of Information Act lawsuits. ( Judicial Watch, Inc. v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1: 15-cv-00687))
These fresh documents reveal terribly disturbing gaps in the emails Hillary Clinton chose to return to the State Department last year. What makes these gaps most critical are the dates. The gaps parallel critical dates in Clinton’s tenure at the State Department.
For reference: She was appointed and began duty as Secretary January 21, 2009
The first gap period of received messages ran: Jan 21 to March 17, 2009
The first gap period of sent messages ran: Jan 21 to April 12, 2009
For reference: Her appointment at State was terminated February 1, 2013
A gap in the sent messages runs : December 30, 2012 to February 1, 2013
These newly acquired documents also show that Hillary’s lawyers turned over to the State Department a chart of details which contains the non-government email address of staffer Cheryl Mills who “evidently” used this unsecured email address to conduct government business involving Hillary Clinton. By rule these records belong to the government and can not be taken from the government without authorization of the records officer after review.
There is additional evidence that Clinton most assuredly committed perjury when she declared under penalty of perjury that she had directed all her emails (in her custody) involving, or even potentially involving, federal business to be provided to the Dept of State. We know of course from news last month that she was trying to outwit the court and avoid perjury charges by including the words “in my custody” since we learned that she was using a server in Colorado and thereby could claim the emails on that remote location server were “not in her custody.”
State Department rules do not allow a departing employee to remove any emails, personal or otherwise, from the government until the State Dept. records officer approves the removal. From early on in this scandal Clinton claimed she was “the official” allowed to decide which emails she could remove. She was not, and additional records reveal she was aware that she was not the “records officer” designated to make those determinations.
To summarize, this latest release of State Department records ordered by the court provide stand alone evidence of several laws being broken by Clinton and others in her staff at the State Department. These crimes include the felony crime of perjury as well as a host of violations of State Department rules for which she should be declared ineligible for government service by the government’s own standards for employment rules and regulations.
Why is she still a candidate for the one office which would allow her to literally erase this entire episode? With apologies to Richard Nixon, “She is not a crook!”
Other Judicial Watch law suits have forced the Obama Department of Justice to release records that document the release from custody 165,900 convicted criminal aliens nationwide. The Justice Department forced local and state officials to release aliens convicted of murders, sexual assualt, kidnapping, and aggravated assualt, and more. Many of those persons Obama ordered released were convicted multiple times of violent crimes, such was the case of Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, the illegal alien who was seen murdering Kate Steinle in San Francisco.
