I have long thought that the fact that Obama did not appoint a permanent Inspector General for the State Department during Hillary Clinton's entire tenure as Secretary of State was not only highly unusual, but highly suspicious.

nypost.com...


Inspectors general serve an essential and unique role in the federal government by independently investigating agency waste, fraud and abuse. Their oversight also covers violations of communications security procedures.



“This was all planned in advance” to skirt rules governing federal records management, said Howard J. Krongard, who served as the agency’s inspector general from 2005 to 2008.



The State Department is lying. Hillary is lying. Obama is lying. Something is very very wrong!

But, there are four women that this has to get past before it can go to an indictment:


For one, he says, any criminal referral to the Justice Department from the FBI “will have to go through four loyal Democrat women” — Assistant Attorney General Leslie Caldwell, who heads the department’s criminal division; Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates; Attorney General Loretta Lynch; and top White House adviser Valerie Jarrett.

It should pop! I have always thought the failure of Obama to appoint a permanent IG was part of this whole thing and it should have raised flags from the get go. Maybe it did and they just kept it low-key, but now it is coming out and lots of people are wondering why he would be so negligent.

Just reading this on Drudge...Thanks for posting.
THIS is a very telling paragraph from your source:


He also points to the unusual absence of a permanent inspector general during Clinton’s entire 2009-2013 term at the department. He said the 5¹/₂-year vacancy was unprecedented.

“This is a major gap. In fact, it’s without precedent,” he said. “It’s the longest period any department has gone without an IG.”

This also explains how $6 Billion was able to go missing from the State Dept. without a trace...under her tenure.

Also this shows Obama was lying when he claimed he didn't know about Hillary's private systems.

A few censored emails are ones between Obama and Hillary's email address !!!!

Exactly, IAMTAT. Their explanation for the missing billions reads like a twisted pretzel. They must think the American people are stupid. I think this is a huge piece of this whole dirty puzzle and we better get to the bottom of it. I really don't think the people are going to let this die on the vine like the business-as-usual political shenanigans we put up with.

Those four ladies should have some heat put on them.

Lies lies and more lies. This proves it was indeed premeditated.


The Harvard-educated lawyer points out that, from Day One, Clinton was never assigned and never used a state.gov e-mail address like previous secretaries.

“That’s a change in the standard. It tells me that this was premeditated. And this eliminates claims by the State Department that they were unaware of her private e-mail server until later,” Krongard said in an exclusive interview. “How else was she supposed to do business without e-mail?”

Can this man be believed? He has his own shady history.


Krongard, who took the inspector general's job in 2005 after serving as counsel to several accounting and law firms, ran afoul of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform in recent months over his stewardship of key investigations. He also came under criticism from State Department employees who chafed under what they described as his abrasive management style.

Current and former department officials have charged that Krongard blocked them from pursuing allegations of contract fraud and mismanagement in the construction of the $736 million U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, as well as alleged arms smuggling by Blackwater Worldwide, which has a State Department contract to protect U.S. diplomats in Iraq.



Krongard recused himself last month from the embassy and Blackwater investigations after Waxman's committee confronted him with evidence of conflicts of interest, including his brother's role as a strategic adviser to Blackwater.

Krongard's conflicts of interest and management style during his service does not negate any of these current facts.

Has the government released anything that said Obama did not appoint IG's so they could get around internal investigations?

Also, is there an official release stating Hillary never had a SD address?

Here's what happens when a President gets lazy (on purpose?)...



The State Department’s inspector general has warned the department that $6 billion in contracting money over the past six years cannot be properly accounted for and cited “significant financial risk and . . . a lack of internal control.”

The warning was the second “management alert” in State Department history, both issued by new Inspector General Steve Linick. Linick took over the job in late September, after it had been vacant for nearly six years.

Both the alert, dated March 20, and the department’s response a week later, were made public Thursday.

How can they release details about ongoing investigations?

The SD IG position was vacant the whole time Hillary was SOS.

Indeed. If you read the link the fox provided, it appears that the issues at the SD could be connected to this man and his defense contractor buddies.

He may be part of the problem.
