Who Let Hillary Clinton Keep Computer Server Nearly Two Years After Leaving State Dept?
Hillary Clinton’s email activity has been subject to intense scrutiny (perhaps more so by the media than the FBI) and yet we still haven’t received the answer as to who allowed the former Secretary of State to keep her computer server nearly two years after leaving government. Hedge fund manager Charles Ortel posed the question during an interview with Russia Today.
RT: What do you make of this latest revelation on the Clinton email investigation?
Charles Ortel: I think it is a very dangerous sort of revelation. I would implore people to understand the real issue is not whether or not Hillary Clinton and others had classified information on this private server. The real issue is who allowed Hillary Clinton, while secretary of state, and the various cronies associated with her and employees and contractors, to operate this private server during her entire tenure and then to let her and her team continue to operate, and hold all of the contents that were on this server for almost two years after she had left the post. This is akin to deciding that what you are going to do is to take Air Force Two after you leave, and use it for 18 months and then give it back to the government at the end of the day. It is very damaging information.
Despite overwhelming evidence of Hillary Clinton mishandling classified information, the FBI and Department of Justice refuse to prosecute the former Secretary of State. As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, former FBI Director James Comey drafted a memo exonerating Clinton before the Bureau’s investigation was complete.
Judicial Watch has uncovered additional examples of Clinton and her aide, Huma Abedin, mishandling classified information through email.
According to Judicial Watch:
Judicial Watch today released 1,617 new pages of documents from the U.S. Department of State revealing numerous additional examples of classified information being transmitted through the unsecure, non-state.gov account of Huma Abedin, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s deputy chief of staff, as well as many instances of Hillary Clinton donors receiving special favors from the State Department.[…]The State Department produced many more Clinton and Abedin unsecured emails that were classified:
- On March 8, 2009, Clinton sent classified information using her unsecure [email protected] account. She forwarded to former Senator George Mitchell an email from Tony Blair relating to Palestine. The email had been sent to her at [email protected]. Clinton responded to Blair, saying she had forwarded the email to Mitchell. A former Senate majority leader, Mitchell was serving as Special Envoy for Middle East Peace.
- On April 16, 2009, Deputy Assistant Secretary Jeffrey Feltman sent to Abedin’s unsecure email account classified information about an unknown subject.
- On June 18, 2009, Abedin sent classified information summarizing a June 18, 2009, “Middle East Breakfast” meeting between various senators, representatives and State Department officials, at which Deputy Secretary Jack Lew and George Mitchell briefed the congressmen with “an update on our discussions with the [Middle East] parties.”

Documents released in August show former FBI head James Comey exonerated Hillary Clinton before the investigation into her email conduct had concluded. Even more concerning is “Mr. Comey even circulated an early draft statement to select members of senior FBI leadership,” reports Townhall. TGP also previously reported, the FBI denied lawyer Ty Clevenger’s request to obtain documents related to Hillary Clinton’s email probe. The reason given? A “lack of public interest.”
