Another diabolical exposure for Hillary.

Looks like a high level State Department IT official told some employees who brought Hillary's private email system into question were *TOLD* to never mention anything about the issue again !!

Apparently this is in the State Department Inspector General's report released yesterday

We can only imagine the petty nit picking and jealousy inside the SD while Hillary was there !!

I bet this official is in deep trouble NOW.


State Dept. IT staff told to keep quiet about Clinton’s server


Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's decision to use a private email server ran afoul of the government's IT security and record retention requirements, according to a report by the department's inspector general released today.


This use of a private email server did not go unnoticed within the Department of State's IT department. Two IT staff members who raised concerns about Clinton's use of a private server were told not speak of it.

This report by the Department of State's Inspector General about Clinton's use of a private server makes clear that rules and regulations were not followed. It says that Clinton would not have received approval for this server had she sought it.


WOW the arrogance !!

The first rule of server club...


That report is so damaging to Hillary's fabricated story for anyone with the whit to understand its language that if she skates after seeing what was released in the gentle government-speak descriptions of her malfeasance, I will be surprised.

I was leaning toward her getting away with it, but as many have mentioned that report has 'distancing themselves,' all over it.

This is why you need to be nice to your IT people. They can save your butt. If you don't pay attention to them, you will pay--eventually. Hug your IT guys. Bring them cookies. You'll be glad you did.

Tomorrow is Friday. A good day for Hillary to have something leaked early about the FBI end of it.... maybe to soften the blow.

So WHO is this "director"...and WHEN do we find out they've committed suicide?


Staffers raised concerns again the next January, but were told by a director that Clinton had received approval for her private server, even though she never requested it. Furthermore, the same official “instructed the staff never to speak of the Secretary’s personal e-mail system again.”

If the director is suicided, then this hearsay is actually admissible as evidence. Death is one exception to the hearsay rule.

here's some info about ....

Bureau of Information Resource Management


The Bureau of Information Resource Management, headed by Chief Information Officer Steven C. Taylor, provides the information technology and services the Department needs to successfully carry out its foreign policy mission by applying modern IT tools, approaches, systems, and information products. It is expanding the use of collaborative information development and refinement to provide end users with the most accurate and useful information.

IRM constantly strives to improve its commitment for transparent, interconnected diplomacy, information systems and to incorporate new technologies for the advancement of U.S. foreign policy. Equally as important, the bureau is focused on enhancing security for the Department's computer and communications systems. IRM continues to aggressively confront these issues by strengthening IRM employee expertise and by enhancing the Department's information technology.

This is referring Bryan Pagliano.

Who pleaded the 5th before congress, received immunity from the FBI, and recently pleaded the 5th to the court ordered discovery granted to Judicial Watch in the FOIA lawsuit wherein the State Department was found to not be acting in good faith.

Mr.Pagliano is a bit camera shy it seems.

From the letter his lawyers wrote to Judicial Watch...

"The subpoena that was served on Mr.Pagliano provides that the deposition will be recorded by "stenographic and audiovisual means." As you know, the only proper purpose of a videotaped deposition is to record a deponent's demeanour in order to assist the trier of fact in assessing credibility. We have made clear that, given the scope of the Court's order, Mr.Pagliano will decline to answer each and every question in reliance on his Fifth Amendment rights.
Accordingly, there can be no proper purpose in seeking to make a video recording of Mr.Pagliano's testimony.

We would like your advance assurance that Mr.Pagliano's deposition will be recorded solely by stenographic means. If you are unwilling to provide that assurance, please let us know immediately so that we may timely seek a protective order."

Since Mr.Pagliano is reported to have negotiated a deal for immunity I wonder if there is someone else who doesn't want a nice long video of Mr.Pagliano repeatedly refusing to answer all those awkward Questions.

I also wonder if there are any more of the scheduled depositions where the protection of the Fifth Amendment will be needed.

It would seem quite possible that the Judge will find a pattern of unwilling witnesses sufficient to require Mrs.Clinton herself to take the stand.

A video of her "taking the Fifth" would seem quite damaging.

I am aware that the Law can not infer guilt from a person asserting their right to the protection of the Fifth Amendment.

The Public Perception is a different question.

If staffers did, indeed, hear him say these things -- but he refused(es) to testify about them -- I think the staffers' testimony can be used under the Hearsay Exception rule, too. It says, in part:



Rule 804. Hearsay Exceptions; Declarant Unavailable
(a) Criteria for Being Unavailable. A declarant is considered to be unavailable as a witness if the declarant:

(2) refuses to testify about the subject matter despite a court order to do so;

It could be that pleading the 5th won't keep this evidence from being admitted as allowable hearsay IF staffers heard it and can/will testify.

This is why I don't think this information came from Pagliano:


ORIGIN OF KEY CLINTON EMAILS FROM REPORT ARE A MYSTERY



The existence of these previously unreleased messages - which appear to have been found among electronic files of four former top Clinton State Department aides - renews concerns that Clinton was not completely forthcoming when she turned over a trove of 55,000 pages of work-related emails.

Pagliano isn't a "TOP Clinton SD aide".

His official title was Special Advisor.


Special Advisor .................................................. Bryan M. Pagliano


Department of State Plum Book direct .pdf link.

It seems that no one really knew what he was supposed to be doing. His supervisor on paper had little to nothing to do with his daily operations.

I think his discrete projects are coming to bite him in the backside.

 


From the State Department report:


7
In addition to Secretary Clinton, eight former Department employees declined OIG requests for interviews: (1) the Chief of Staff to Secretary Powell (2002-05); (2) the Counselor and Chief of Staff to Secretary Clinton (2009-13); (3) the Deputy Chief of Staff for Policy to Secretary Clinton (2009-11) and the Director of Policy Planning (2011-13); (4) the Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations to Secretary Clinton (2009-13); (5) the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Strategic Communication (2009-13); (6) the Director of the S/ES Office of Information Resources Management (2008-13); (7) a Special Advisor to the Deputy Chief Information Officer (2009-13) who provided technical support for Secretary Clinton’s personal email system; and (8) a Senior Advisor to the Department, who supervised responses to Congressional inquiries (2014-15). Two additional individuals did not respond to OIG interview requests: the Deputy Secretary of State for Management and Resources (2011-13) and an individual based in New York who provided technical support for Secretary Clinton’s personal email system but who was never employed by the Department.

...

OIG identified two individuals who provided technical support to Secretary Clinton. The first, who was at one time an advisor to former President Clinton but was never a Department employee, registered the clintonemail.com domain name on January 13, 2009.155 The second, a Schedule C political appointee who worked in IRM as a Senior Advisor from May 2009 through February 2013,156 provided technical support for BlackBerry communications during the Secretary’s 2008 campaign for President.157 OIG reviewed emails showing communications between Department staff and both individuals concerning operational issues affecting the Secretary’s email and server from 2010 through at least October 2012. For example, in December 2010, the Senior Advisor worked with S/ES-IRM and IRM staff to resolve issues affecting the ability of emails transmitted through the clintonemail.com domain used by Secretary Clinton to reach Department email addresses using the state.gov domain.158

...

158
At that time, S/ES IRM staff met with the Senior Advisor, who accessed the Secretary’s email system and looked at its logs. The issue was ultimately resolved and, on December 21, 2010, S/ES-IRM staff sent senior S/ES staffers an email describing the issue and summarizing the activities undertaken to resolve it. On another occasion, the Senior Advisor met with staff within CTAD and received a briefing on cyber security risks facing the Department. A third interaction took place on October 30, 2012, during the period when Hurricane Sandy disrupted power in the New York City area. An email exchange between Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations and another member of the Secretary’s staff revealed that the server located in Secretary Clinton’s New York residence was down. Thereafter, the Senior Advisor met with S/ES-IRM staff to ascertain whether the Department could provide support for the server. S/ES-IRM staff reported to OIG that they told the Senior Advisor they could not provide support because it was a private server.

he should charged, everyone who aided or covered up what she was doing should be given a fair trial and then throw in prison for a very long time.

What is kind of funny is that blackberry handed over the encryption keys in 2007 to CSIS. It was only in 2010 they handed them over to the RCMP. Since Canada is part of the "five eyes" that share intelligence information, plus the US, the UK, New Zealand and Australia, they have access to all of Clinton's blackberry communications, they all have the encryption keys lol. I am a little surprised no one has brought this up.

The five eyes, is political move that allows them to spy on their allies general population and circumvents pesky privacy laws giving politicians a kind of plausible deniability, while sharing the data. When I was overseas with the South Africans, we got all kinds of information before the five eyes were even created. All that was required was well placed operatives in legitimate goverment positions.

So, all that is required to breach US security at this point is an operative in one of the other "four eyes" outside the US. Now if that doesn't tell you all intelligence agencies work together, I don't know what will. I had this discussion with Maurice Strong back in 1990, when he confirmed what I had heard from my CO about the Bruce Gen station audit.

Cheers - Dave
