NY TIMES SAYS: HILLARY CLINTON HAS TO ANSWER QUESTIONS ABOUT WHETHER FORMER SECRETARY OF STATE DELETED WORK-RELATED E-MAILS FROM HER PRIVATE ACCOUNT
The NY Times article by Michael S. Schmidt has a tame-sounding headline: “State Dept. Gets Libya Emails That Hillary Clinton Didn’t Hand Over” — IT AIN'T TAME, AND BOY, IT IS PITHY
The most important take-aways are: 1) that the NY Times made John Boehner look like he was dragging his feet not going after >>> Bill and Hillary Clinton’s SERVER at their home in Chappaqua <<< — AND — 2) GOP Presidential Candidate, Senator Lindsay Graham, wants to make Clinton’s missing State Department E-Mails part of his campaign for president; and that seems OK with the NY Times
The biggest news of the day on the Hillary Clinton-Benghazi front is that the New York Times is bashing Hillary Clinton again over her handling of Emails while she was Secretary of State. It’s no accident that the NY Times by-line on all of this again goes to Mike Schmidt — he’s the guy who broke the whole Hillary private E-Mail story in the first place. So in its own Times-ish way of doing things, the NY Times is DOUBLING-DOWN AGAINST HILLARY ON EMAILS — and the takeaway is this — FIRST, HILLARY YOU HAVE TO TURN OVER THE SERVER TO CONGRESS — AND SECOND, THIS IS A LEGITIMATE ISSUE TO BE RAISED BY YOUR OPPONENTS ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL.......
According to the article in today’s New York Times by Michael S. Schmidt, “The State Department said on Thursday that 15 emails sent or received by Hillary Rodham Clinton were missing from records that she has turned over, raising new questions about whether she deleted work-related emails from the private account she used exclusively while in office....” (See “: “State Dept. Gets Libya Emails That Hillary Clinton Didn’t Hand Over” by Michael S. Schmidt, 6-25-15 [Print editions 6-26-15] NY Times/ Politics [http://www.nytimes.com/2015/06/26/us/state-dept-gets-libya-emails-that-clinton-didnt-hand-over.html?_r=0]).
A very important part of the Times-Schmidt article says, “.... Republicans said that the State Department’s statement was likely to increase pressure on the House speaker, John A. Boehner of Ohio, to subpoena the server in Mrs. Clinton’s home that housed the account...."
THE BLUMENTHAL E-MAILS — STATE DEPARTMENT CONFIRMS IN THE OFFICIAL RECORD NINE (9) ARE MISSING AND SIX (6) OTHERS ARE INCOMPLETESchmidt points out that ".... Mrs. Clinton has said that she gave the State Department about 50,000 pages of emails that she deemed to be related to her work as secretary of state and deleted roughly the same number. She said the messages she deleted were personal, relating to topics like yoga, family vacations and her mother’s funeral.... ” However, he also notes that “[Hillery Clinton’s] longtime confidant and adviser Sidney Blumenthal, responding two weeks ago to a subpoena from the House committee investigating the 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya, gave it dozens of emails he had exchanged with Mrs. Clinton when she was in office. Mr. Blumenthal did not work at the State Department at the time, but he routinely provided her with intelligence memos about Libya, some with dubious information, which Mrs. Clinton circulated to her deputies.... State Department officials then crosschecked the emails from Mr. Blumenthal with the ones Mrs. Clinton had handed over and discovered that she had not provided nine of them and portions of six others....”
Clearly, these missing E-mails about Benghazi, produced by Sidney Blumenthal pursuant to a congressional subpoena show it could be a lot more than the personal stuff described by Hillary Clinton in her now-infamous UN press conference. It clearly raises questions as to whether relevant Benghazi-related were intentionally deleted off the Clintons’ personal server by Mrs. Clinton and/or her personal operatives.
