So it appears @RepMarkMeadows and company have gathered enough evidence to suggest that the FBI, under the Obama completely ignored a major lead in the HRC email scandal, according to leaked transcripts of closed-door testimonies of several current and former bureau officials.
@RepMarkMeadows The ICIG Charles McCullough informed the FBI in 2015 that a forensic review of HRC’s emails showed anomalies in the metadata of the messages. The evidence in the metadata showed that a copy of every email HRC sent during her tenure as the SoS was forwarded to a foreign 3d party.
@RepMarkMeadows McCollough appeared before congress several times, here's @jasoninthehouse questioning him
@RepMarkMeadows @jasoninthehouse This was first revealed during the public testimony of DOJ IG Michael Horowitz in June last year. Horowitz acknowledged the existence of the specific lead and said he spoke about it to ICIG Charles McCullough.
Horowitz’s 568 page report on the FBI’s handling the Clinton-email investigation made no mention of the lead or how the FBI handled it. That caught the attention of @RepMarkMeadows who pressed Horowitz for an explanation. Horowitz said he would get back to him with answers.
@RepMarkMeadows Who knows if Horowitz ever followed up with @RepMarkMeadows. Meadows went on to question several current and former FBI officials about the lead, including Strzok, Page, Priestap, Jonathan Moffa, John Giacolone, & Comey. But I have yet to see anything about IG followup or not
@RepMarkMeadows To this day the ICIG report has remained under seal, nothing about the specific referral from the ICIG, suggesting that the lead in his report was either suppressed or ignored by investigators. McCollough has been MIA from interviews. #coverup
@RepMarkMeadows repeatedly suggested that Strzok, ignored the lead and never followed up with the ICIG regarding the referral. Horowitz didn't really answer anything straight on that. That ICIG report is very key to a lot of this entire Russian Hoax.
@RepMarkMeadows @replouiegohmert tried to question Strzok on any contact he had with Frank Rucker, to no avail. Judge Gohmert reminded Strzok that McCullough, sent his investigator, Frank Rucker, along with an ICIG attorney, Jeanette J. McMillian to brief him on the email breach
@RepMarkMeadows @replouiegohmert This little exchange between Gohmert & Strzok was lost in the blowup when Gohmert lost his patience with Strzok and went rogue about his smirk and looking into his wife's eyes when he was banging Page, and the committee train jumped the tracks and all they talked about was that.
That outburst completely over shadowed the significance of the the exchange about Fred Rucker reporting the breach to the FBI & they ignored it & Strzok claimed to not even remember it. 30K HRC classified emails were being forwarded to a foreign power other than Russia & nothing
Strzok was 1 of 4 officials briefed on the anomalies. He was transferred to FBI HQ from the field office in Washington to work on the Clinton-email probe 2 months after it was opened & eventually the investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
According to @RepMarkMeadows Strzok called the ICIG office 10 minutes after Comey exonerated Clinton on July 5th 2016 and asked to close out the inspector general’s referral.
Originally the ICIG referred the Clinton-email case to the FBI on July 6, 2015 pursuant to the Intelligence Authorization Act which requires agencies to advise the FBI “immediately of any information regardless of its origin which indicates that classified information is being
or may have been, disclosed in an unauthorized manner to a foreign power or an agent of a foreign power,” according to the Justice Department Inspector General’s report on the handling of the email case. The bureau officially opened the investigation on July 10, 2015.
According to the leaked transcripts, Meadows confronted Strzok about the metadata anomalies in Clinton’s emails during a closed-door interview on June 27 last year. And as par the course, Strzok evades giving direct answers.
Strzok: “Sir, I am...I do not recall a meeting where the IC IG made any reference to changes in the metadata,” Strzok said. “What I can tell you, Congressman, is that our technical experts, any allegation of intrusion, any review of metadata that might be indicative of an act....
was pursued by our technical folks, and I am very confident that they did that thoroughly and well. I am certainly unaware of anything that we did not pursue or had not pursued.”

That's very different than what Strzok told @replouiegohmert
As McCullough said earlier he did interact with the FBI after the initial meeting when he referred the Clinton-email case. He tasked Rucker to handle day-to-day interactions with the bureau. Rucker would go on to pass information to the FBI in several tranches.
According to the video posted earlier with @replouiegohmert at Strzok’s public testimony in June last year, Rucker passed on the referral during a meeting with four FBI officials. Jeanette McMillian, the legal counsel for the ICIG, also attended the meeting
According to the leaked transcripts, three of the four FBI officials briefed by the ICIG were Strzok, then Executive Assistant Director John Giacalone, & then Section Chief Dean Chappell. The identity of the fourth official remains masked.
Moffa who was a lead analyst on the Clinton email probe, told lawmakers during a closed-door interview on Aug. 24 last year that he met the ICIG together with Counterespionage Section Chief Charles Kable.
Moffa said he and Kable met the ICIG two or three times during the early days of the investigation. SO there is no way they weren't fully briefed on the breach to a foreign power, they were simply covering it up and not pursuing it.
Meadows asked at least 2 of the 4 present at the meeting, Strzok & Giacalone, about their interactions with the ICIG. Both claim to not remember being told anything about anomalies in the metadata of Clinton’s emails & that a copy of every message was sent to a foreign actor.
Problem is all that is in the McCullough ICIG report he put out that has been kept hidden, claiming it's too classified and sensitive to release to the public. More like it's too embarrassing that all this was going on under their noses.
Giacalone told the committee behind closed doors, he remembers a specific country of concern being discussed during either a face-to-face meeting or other communication with the ICIG, he just couldn't recall exactly.
@realDonaldTrump suggested in August last year that Clinton’s emails were obtained by China. I'd say he has access to far more classified information than anyone.
@realDonaldTrump Daily Caller citing 2 anonymous sources claiming that a Chinese company operating in the DC area obtained nearly all of Clinton’s emails.

dailycaller.com/2018/08/27/chi…
The firm received Clinton’s emails in real time using a code embedded on a private, unauthorized email server she used for government work while she was secretary of state, the report alleged.
Fox News confirmed the Daily Caller report, citing two anonymous sources. It isn’t clear if the Fox sources are different from those used by the Daily Caller.

foxnews.com/politics/chine…
Here's something to consider, Charles Kable & Dean Chappell served as section chiefs at the FBI’s counterintelligence division alongside Strzok during the early days of the Clinton-email investigation. So both would be in the loop about this Chinese breach
Also note that Both Kable and Chappell have expertise in Chinese espionage, a factor which, if the media reports about China are true, may have initially contributed to their selection for the Clinton-email team. Why else would they have been brought in initially?
Charles H. Kable, IV Named Special Agent in Charge of Counterintelligence Division of the Washington Field Office fbi.gov/contact-us/fie…
Charles Kable is still employed at the FBI
Kable has extensive background in the counter intelligence division, he also was in the same DC field office Strzok was before he was brought to the FBI HQ
Not much is known about Dean Chappell’s time at the FBI, he was cited among experts on Chinese espionage in a Fox News article published two weeks after the start of the Clinton-email probe. But he was a Chinese espionage specialist

fxn.ws/1CYxhCy #FoxNews
Kable led investigations against “known and suspected Chinese intelligence officers in the U.S.” for a year and five months starting in 2009, according to an FBI promotion notice I posted earlier and his LinkedIn profile. No sign of any Russian background.
Why is the FBI bringing in 2 of their top Chinese espionage agents in on the Clinton Email probe, if they really the crap CrowdStrike claimed that it was Russians doing all the hacking on the DNC & in turn the HRC server? Makes zero sense to scramble Kable & Chappell for that!
Asst Director Randall Coleman the top official overseeing the email probe, is also cited in the article, as well as the related FBI press release. More Chinese background strength on the team initially

fbi.gov/news/pressrel/…
Strange thing as well is in over 500 pages of the Horowitz's HRC email scandal report there is zero mention of Kable’s or Chappell's names anywhere. I find that very curious and suspect. Why are they left out completely when they clearly were part of it.
Out of the blue Comey, replaces every person in the chain of command above Strzok at different points during the Clinton-email investigation. On Dec. 9, 2015, Comey moved Kable out of FBI HQ back to the Washington field office, ending his term on the Clinton-email probe.
So after spending the day testifying before the Senate Judiciary Comey testified to SJC regarding oversight bit.ly/2BfwYVQ

He goes back to the office and changes out the email team. Changes out the agents with Chinese experience to....
With Kable gone Comey appoints Priestap to serve as assistant director of the FBI’s Counterintelligence Division, replacing Randall Coleman, who held the same position until Dec. 21, 2015. fbi.gov/news/pressrel/…
Comey appoints Andrew McCabe to replace Mark Giuliano as deputy directorComey & appointed Michael Steinbach to replace Giacalone as the executive assistant director for the National Security Branch. fbi.gov/news/pressrel/…
With all those changes in place, the only one left on the Mid Year Exam team, that was present when Rucker briefed them on the Chinese Breach was Strzok, and he had a different direction in mind.
Preistap claimed to be completely ignorant of any briefing on the Chinese and had no idea who Rucker was.
Meadows wasn't amused by this at all
Preistap tried to defend his position. Strzok hadn't gotten him up to speed on anything.
Lisa Page, told the committee on 7/16/18 that it was “completely baffling” to learn of the ICIG anomalies referral during Strzok’s testimony in 2017, almost a year after the Clinton-email probe concluded.
Lisa Page: “It was my understanding is that the ICIG did refer the existence of the server to the FBI, but that was because of the existence of classified information on that server, not because of any anomalous activity, not because of potential intrusion activity,”
Comey likewise told the committee he didn’t know Rucker. Asked on Dec. 17 last year if he would be surprised if Rucker was never interviewed during the investigation, Comey said, “I don’t have a reaction.”
These few pages from Comey's testimony are pretty astonishing. Here is an ongoing investigation, likely the biggest one on his plate then, since it directly impacted a presidential election. Comey acts like he's completely oblivious to what was going on around him. #NotBuyingIt
It's ridiculous that he's allowed to get away with playing this dumb
Just amazing how he failing the MYE
The Director of the FBI was clueless that the IC IG had found an email breach by the Chinese on an illegal server they were supposed to be investigating and he's full blown SGT Schultz

"I know nothing!!!"
Comey on July 5, 2016, saying that the FBI couldn’t find evidence that Clinton’s emails were hacked by a “hostile actor,” but “given the nature of the system and of the actors potentially involved, we assess that we would be unlikely to see such direct evidence.”

#Bullshit
Statement by FBI Director James B. Comey on the Investigation of Secretary Hillary Clinton’s Use of a Personal E-Mail System fbi.gov/news/pressrel/…
Comey’s statement didn’t mention the evidence of the metadata anomalies produced by the ICIG. Comey chose the term “hostile actor” for the statement, a phrase which may or may not include China or other countries who are not publicly hostile toward the U.S.
According to Comey the bureau found eight emails containing top-secret information and 37 emails containing secret information, and other classified material. Comey ultimately concluded that “no reasonable prosecutor” would bring charges against Clinton or her associates.
What happened to the emails that Charles McCullough found his number was 2234 classified emails and 22 that were TS/SCI EO RAD that he couldn't share with anyone not specifically read in on that particular conversation.

My guess it is those 22 that BHO asserted EP on.
Okay here is a Key Date we need to focus on

JULY 22nd 2015

A lot happened on this day and was a pivotal point in this entire mess.
July 22 2015 ICIG Charles McCullough sent Frank Rucker that AM to brief the MYE team on the IC findings of the presence of forensic evidence of a breach of HRC emails by a foreign actor other than Russia.
The afternoon of July 22 2015 Sally Yates issued a 58-page memo denying IG access & oversight of the Nat'l Sec arm of the DOJ and to info collected by DOJ & FBI under Title III bit.ly/2T0Ue1c
July 22 2015 Frank Rucker briefed Charles Kable, Dean Chapell, Peter Strzok, and a 4th name unkown yet.

What does Kable immediately do? He goes scorched earth on issuing orders of record preservation to ever possible party involved, with the Clinton Server
There are 10 more preservation requests sent to everyone, not going to post them all here, with post the entire file on Scribd in a bit. So Kable is doing his job. Yates is blocking the IG from any of this. Comey can play dumb but Grassley informed him in writing on July 24 2015
I got out over my skis a bit, let me backup and lay some groundwork.

6/19/15 A memo from State OIG Linick & ICIG McCullough to Pat Kennedy of State making four recommendations related to Clinton email investigation on mishandling classified material.
Linick got no response from Pat Kennedy with the State Dept & notified IG McCullough, who in turn notified the FBI in writing 7/6/15 to DAD Kable.

Kable officially opened a counterintelligence investigation into HRC emails concerning a possible security breach per ICIG
7//23/15 Sally Yates is officially notified in writing by the DD of the FBI of the possible breach and the OIG concerns and that a counterintelligence investigation has been opened Hand delivered
Now you have the Deputy Director doing his job, notifying everyone, the Deputy Asst Director of CI opening an investigation, issuing records preservation orders to everybody. At this point in July 2015 everything appears to be pretty normal for a CI case.
July 23 2015 Horowitz pushes back on Sally Yates firewalling him off from investigating the DOJ/FBI National Security Arm.

Yates kept the firewall in place.
The Firewall Sally Yates put up on Horowitz office on the Nat Sec Arm not only stayed in place it remained in place until Jeff Sessions was sworn in & lifted it himself day one in office.

All Counterintelligence Investigations, fall under the Nat Sec Arm. #ObstructionOfJustice
7/22/15 Trey Gowdy, the GOP leader of the House Select Committee on Benghazi, renewed his call for Clinton's private email server to be turned over to a third party for review.
I forgot about this letter 6/25/15 ICIG McCullough letter says HRC lawyer, David Kendall, possesses a thumbdrive with 30k State emails
July 8th 2015 DOJ awards $150k contract to CrowdStrike (effective til Jul 7, 2016)

No that's not a typo, the fox is inside the hen house
July 24, 2015 State OIG and ICIG say classified info found in HRC State emails; thumbdrive, server possibly missing. This is the letter that put Kable in hyperdrive putting out record preservation orders to everyone everywhere.
Aug 05, 2015Suspicious leak to the NY Post that the FBI investigation of HRC emails disclosed as criminal probe, however no paperwork I can find shows it as anything other than a CI archive.is/OiYr0
Aug 12, 2015FBI enters into evidence HRC's Dell PowerEdge 2900 tower PC from Platte River Networks (chain of custody found to be missing five weeks later on Oct 20, 2015)
With what looks like is panning out to be an aggressive CI into the HRC email scandal and security breach, after gathering all this evidence, in a short few weeks, Comey ups and changes out all the MYE team with the exception of Strzok. I described the changes earlier.
In doing so looking at the paper trails, the investigation took a new direction and sense of aggressiveness. By Dec 2015 Comey had assembled the new MYE team and given the people that were chosen, I'd say Strzok helped that roster list. All former acquaintances and his girlfriend
Sep 28, 2015Lynch advises Comey to refer to HRC's emails as a matter, not an investigation [Jun 14, 2018 IG Report p.64]
10/3/15 FBI seized the Platte River Networks server as well as the "Pagliano" server, which were used to host Clinton email services bit.ly/2RbJ2C7
10/22/15James Comey appears on Capitol Hill at a House Judiciary Committee oversight hearing. He won't talking about the ongoing HRC email investigation, however he slips up & may have lied, stating he was working with the OIG concerning the MYE. OIG was fire walled out.
12/14/2015 Zebley's letter to the DOJ where he asks that they destroy Blackberry files he provided to them because they weren't from Hillary Clinton
12/15/2015 The DOJ response letter to Zebley, where it agrees that the FBI will not review the back-up Blackberry files. This is the same Aaron Zebley that ended up on Mueller team
Two FBI case agents interviewed Pagliano for the proffer on December 22, 2015, in the presence of all four prosecutors, the CART examiner, and Pagliano’s
attorneys.
Paul Combetta was 1st interviewed on 9/17/15 by 2 case agents in the presence of Prosecutor 2 & Combetta’s counsel. The interview was voluntary & there was no immunity agreement. According to the FD302 &
contemporaneous agent notes. It was mainly about the server technical setup.
However when the same 2 agents returned 2/18/16 armed with questions about BleachBit and who authorized him to do it, he all of a sudden dummy's up and asserts his 5th Amendment rights.
1/14/16 ICIG McCullough sends a letter to Burr, Corker; "several dozen" add'l classified HRC emails are identified"

I believe these are the highly classified emails he testified to that were OPCON
Under normal OPs the ICIG would communicate with the DOJIG and work the chain of command that way as far as contact with the DOJ. Horowitz being firewalled out hamstrung McCullough and him interacting with the DOJ/FBI and he was forced to break protocol.
Chain of custody paperwork for two thumb drives collected from PRD Datto one marked unclassified and one marked secret.

This is a civilian business with zero security clearance that had control and possession of all the HRC emails and owned the cloud backup.
Feb 2016 a rumor begins circulating that a U1 whistle blower is talking to the DOJ. The identity remains unknown but it is rumored to have physical evidence. Possibly documents, and the source of this rumor emerged from the Arpaio trial in May 2015 (cont)
This whistle blower is public now, but I'm working a time line here so I'm treating it as he's not known but his initials are DM, those that are already into this subject know who that is. But for now in this time line he's just a rumor.
3/31/16 The DOJ requests the assistance of the Secret Service to interview a subject. This would suggest the subject qualifies for USSS protection. The name is masked but will become clear later.
March 31 2016 Judicial Watch reveals parts of their judicial proceedings against HRC U.S. District Judge Sullivan cited that email as part of the reason he ordered the State Department produce records related to its initial failures in the FOIA searches for Clinton’s records.
Sullivan said legitimate questions have been raised about whether Clinton’s staff was trying to help her to sidestep FOIA. He vocally shared his own concerns

“We’re talking about a Cabinet-level official who was accommodated by the government for reasons unknown to the public..
...and I think that’s a fair statement: For reasons heretofore unknown to the public. And all the public can do is speculate, this is all about the public’s right to know.”
FBI Interview profile on Justin Cooper long time Clinton IT person, one of the many granted immunity by the Lynch DOJ
Here's an example of the softball kid gloves approach that the FBI/DOJ took with HRC in the MYE case. None of the no knock door kicking tactics or 5AM raids at gun point. FBI sent a subpoena, they didn't respond, sent them a letter and here's the reply
Sorry we looked and didn't see anything so that's why we didn't respond, so sorry. As has been aired on TV a lot lately, the FBI doesn't ask they take what they want with a warrant. #DoubleStandards
This is something that I think has been overlooked. One of HRC IT people testified before a Grand Jury on 2-17-16 I have speculation on which one and I actually think it was more than one. What isn't known whatever became of this GJ hearing. True Bill or No Bill, that's the ??
You can bet if it were a No Bill they would have been shouting it from the roof tops, so what gives @MattWhitaker46 do I have this wrong?
@MattWhitaker46 Here we have evidence of a subpoena duces tecum, or subpoena for production of evidence, that is directed at I am assuming the IT team concerning the HRC server so there was a lot of GJ activity going on that we never heard anything about because of the election in full swing

Apr 09, 2016 Office of Net Assessment Director Baker drops a dime on Strzok to FBI Counsel Jim Baker with reference to his March 9 illegal access.

Her's a question, what was Strzok accessing illegally at DOD?
4/30/16 Hillary/DNC says it has been hacked & compromising information is now out there "in the wild". It hires Crowdstrike, through a cutout, legal firm Perkins Coie to investigate the hack. Apparently all DNC contractors were notified, aka Fusion GPS was notified
Also on Apr 30, 2016 Strzok: "And now we've switched from the Patriot Act to a wire carrying current."

Suspicious time gap afterwards

Meaning they have gone from 702 to a Wire.
Not so much an HRC email data point but still an important point in time.

4/18/16 Adm Mike Rogers cut off the contractor access to 702 DB.
Mike Rogers shuts down all outside contractor access to raw FISA information specifically outside contractors working for the FBI. The discovery that outside contractors were accessing raw FISA data is the event that precipitated Rogers ordering a full compliance review.
Both the FBI and DOJ’s NSD become aware of Rogers’ compliance review. They may have known earlier but they were certainly aware after outside contractor access was halted. But 702 (16)(17) "About" queries continued, probably from CIA/FBI employees.
Is this the "illegal access" that Strzok was flagged for by ODA James H Baker who then alerted FBI Counsel James Baker? Timing is suspect
Apr 25, 2016 House IG is notified of irregularities, regarding Awan case and the way it's being handled. House OIG opens a case on the investigation.
May 13, 2016 According to CrowdStrike the event logs from a DNC computer are cleared in order to cover tracks of remote hackers, this of course allows them to wildly speculate the hackers ID without having to prove it.
May 15, 2016 Crowdstrike claims it investigated DNC hacking and that the Russians were responsible. However the FBI is denied access to server so were unable to review any actual forensics.
Let's talk a little about CrowdStrike since they are directly involved in the coverup of a lot of things. Especially the DNC server claimed hack? So is CrowdStrike a real investigator, clean-up crew, or accomplice? I lean to the last two.
Let’s begin with a little background on all this because the DNC had woefully lax security they only had a standard email spam-filtering service, intended to block phishing attacks and malware created to resemble legitimate email.
The reason for this? According to Technology Director at the DNC, Andrew Brown, “There was never enough money to do everything we needed to do.”
The FBI first notified the DNC had been breached in September of 2015.

And wouldn’t you know it? CrowdStrike’s report on this data breach is not publicly available.
The DNC’s crap security posture,  coupled with NGP-VAN ignoring previous reports of issues resulting in other campaigns being able to access each other’s data   walked them into needing the help of a 3d-party, Crowdstrike, to investigate the breach of voter data by a DNC plant.
During the “plant breach” investigation, Crowdstrike would need to be able to access NGP-VAN & all high-level items for forensics. But this investigation took until April to complete. Meaning, CrowdStrike had access control to all voter files as the primaries proceeded.
Then, in April, it was discovered that the DNC itself had been breached. This now meant Crowdstrike’s help and so, its continued presence in the DNC network   was still needed. So while CrowdStrike had complete access control over the DNC server they are "hacked" again
CrowdStrike continued working in the network   now on “monitoring” the threat (in a production environment, no less) rather than containing and eliminating it. Finally, on June 10, Crowdstrike purged the network of “Russians” it claimed or did it. Then produces a garbage report
This means that from right before the start of the primaries to the end, Crowdstrike was in complete control of the DNC network   including NGP-VAN. And they really sucked at their job according to their own evidence
Of course, then CrowdStrike had such a failure of their “protection” they had to come back again, which leads into their role in “faking” Guccifer 2.0 and covering for a leak to Wikileaks IMHO. Who was the leak that still remains unanswered.
H/T to @with_integrity who did some solid work on what I am referring to g-2.space
Even more interestingly, according to Donna Brazile in her book, right before the DNC announced they were “hacked,” CrowdStrike confiscated staff computers and wiped everything without warning and with no opportunity to back anything up. #nothingtoseehere
Back to the MYE May 16, 2016 the day after CrowdStrike is floating around all this hack nonsense Rybicki email cc'd to major DOJ players re: MYE, and the Comey draft exonerating Hillary from any wrong doing. Time line coincidence? Maybe
May 17, 2016 Grassley sends letter to Comey about Clinton's server
This needs to be address because there is an underlying narrative being spun from pure ignorance. The claim that HRC showed no intent is ludicrous on it face, first and foremost. The intent was the server was set up to avoid FOIA and NARA.
NARA was aware something was up way back in 2009 when zero records from the State Dept was showing up in records archive. I documented this fact earlier on their letterhead. Normally failure to comply would have been reported the the State Dept IG, and it would be addressed.
From Jan 20 2009 to Sept 30 2013 there was no IG in the State Dept. It was purposely left vacant during Hillary's Tenure, she wanted no direct oversight. So she was free to do what she wanted and she did.

Now back to this stupid intent nonesense
18 U.S. Code § 1924. Unauthorized removal and retention of classified documents or material

This is the statute these knuckleheads are saying requires intent. Couldn't be further from the truth.

law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18…
We will break it down for the slow ones.

(a) Whoever, being an officer, employee, contractor, or consultant of the United States, and, by virtue of his office, employment, position, or contract, becomes possessed of documents or materials containing classified information....
of the United States, knowingly removes such documents or materials without authority and with the intent to retain such documents or materials at an unauthorized location shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for not more than five years, or both.

STOP
In that second half of the subpart (a) you see the word intent.

"with the intent to retain such documents or materials at an unauthorized location"

Did she intend to use her server? Damn right she did, that's why she had it built, to use it.
Had she been using a Gmail account or any of the many free email accounts there is a grey argument that perhaps it wasn't intentional. But when you use a contractor to build a private server and set it up in your home in Chappaqua NY there is an absolute intentional act.
(b) For purposes of this section, the provision of documents and materials to the Congress shall not constitute an offense under subsection (a).

Pretty self explanatory, sharing documents with congress don't count.
(c) In this section, the term “classified information of the United States” means information originated, owned, or possessed by the United States Government concerning the national defense or foreign relations of the United States that has been determined pursuant to law...
or Executive order to require protection against unauthorized disclosure in the interests of national security.

Again self explanatory.
Okay here is the other charge as part of the Espionage Act

18 U.S. Code § 793. Gathering, transmitting or losing defense information

law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18…
(f) Whoever, being entrusted with or having lawful possession or control of any document, writing, code book, signal book, sketch, photograph, photographic negative, blueprint, plan, map, model, instrument, appliance, note, or information, relating to the national defense....
Stop right there this describes basically anything from a email, document scrap of paper film photo sticky note....whatever if it's classified it's classified.

Let's continue
(1) through gross negligence permits the same to be removed from its proper place of custody or delivered to anyone in violation of his trust, or to be lost, stolen, abstracted, or destroyed, or....

STOP
You see the words "gross negligence" very key

In no language on earth does "gross negligence" mean intent. I saw this argued and it's ludicrous.

"gross negligence" is "gross negligence" that's it PERIOD

Let's continue
(2) having knowledge that the same has been illegally removed from its proper place of custody or delivered to anyone in violation of its trust, or lost, or stolen, abstracted, or destroyed, and fails to make prompt report of such loss, theft, abstraction, or destruction to his..
STOP

Having knowledge, she absolutely knew, ignorance of the law is no excuse she signed a SF 312 and it is spelled out in plain language
The language is specific
Let's continue

superior officer— Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both.

That's it
Under 18 U.S. Code § 793 (f)

There is ZERO language regarding intent and legalese is very specific, it it doesn't say it, it's not the law PERIOD.

You can't insert some level of "mens rea" where there is no language in the statute to support that level of mens rea.
Example : "knowingly and intentionally"

That language supports a level of mens rea

So what's mens rea? Simply the intention or knowledge of wrongdoing that constitutes part of a crime, as opposed to the action or conduct of the accused.
So it's pretty simple to indict Hillary on two charges if an AG wants to do it.
If you think I'm parsing words then explain why they specifically changed the language of the Comey exoneration letter from "gross negligence" to "extremely careless" ?

Simple calling it gross negligence nails her in writing. In the law words are specific and they matter.
Jun 10, 2016 Comey exoneration draft memo changes "gross negligence" to "extremely careless" This was done according to the meta data of the actual document, on Peter Strzok's desktop computer there at JEH building. several drafts floated around to MYE team members for days.

Sept 28 2016 It was SAS Sweeney that called EAD Coleman, EAD Steinbach, and AD Priestap regarding the Weiner laptop emails.
September 28, at 7:04 p.m., Priestap sent an email to Strzok, with the Lead Analyst and the NYO A/SAC copied, that stated, “I spoke to Sweeney. Our agent and analyst should call [the NYO A/SAC] Sweeney said [the A/SAC] will get them access to what they need.”
At 9:26 p.m. on September 28, Sweeney sent the following email to Priestap, “Bill, The NYO POC for the sensitive email issue is A/SAC (cc’d). He can coordinate for your team. Have a quiet night. – Bill.”
September 29 at 6:09 a.m., Sweeney sent the following email to Priestap, “Can you give me a call on the ride in? Not clear under what authorities we have. Thx.”
At Sept 29 8:12 a.m., the A/SAC forwarded to Sweeney the 7:04 p.m. email from Priestap the night before. The A/SAC stated, “FYI There is no way that they can just look at the emails. I even went over the guidance from SDNY....
Not happening unless they have some authority I am in the dark on. Let me known [sic] if you want to discuss.”
At 9:02 am on September 29, Sweeney forwarded Priestap the September 28 email from SDNY Preet Bharara advising the Weiner case agent on the limited scope of the original Weiner search warrant and instructing him not to review any communication to which Abedin was a party.
Priestap forwarded the email to FBI Atty Trisha Anderson and commented, “Per our conversation please follow up” Priestap described Anderson as someone he typically relies on when legal issues arise. Anderson confirmed that Priestap told her about the issue with the Weiner laptop
A conference call was set up to address the Weiner laptop situation
Notes on the call
Post call follow ups
I won't bore you with all the hot potato that was being played with this laptop of Weiner's but they sure weren't in any hurry to look at it. They didn't even apply for the warrant to search the laptop until Oct 30 2016 over a month after it had been discovered.
After all this delay what spurred them to jump last minute to get a warrant 9 days before the election after dragging their feet so long. I will get to what did that in a moment
On Oct 17th 2016 the NYT ran an article about an internal clash going on inside the FBI over the MYE HRC emails and the way it was handled by Comey.
Oct 21, 2016Preet Bharara instructs SDNY deputy to inform DOJ of Wiener laptop delay, and the lack of follow up by the FBI-HQ, The heat was building for someone to act.
Oct 21, 2016 Goodlatte fires off a letter to Comey; asks about recently released 302's from Mid Year Exam investigation and wanted them turned over to the HPSJC
The heat is turning up knowing they are sitting on the Weiner discovery, one leak and they were toast. Something was going to have to be done.

True Pundit wrote an article that struck a nerve and Comey emailed McCabe trying to quell any panic
Oct 27, 2016 Rudy Giuliani teases that the Trump campaign has "surprises left" an on Fox and Friends that morning.
So the morning of the 27th Rudy let's it be known he knows something. Preet Bharara is a Rudy loyalist, Rudy mentored Bharara. The rats were panicking behind the scenes based on what the IG reported
They had been playing politics behind the scenes and Jim Baker testified as much. They were literally watching polls to see if they wanted to act on this or not
But this was their biggest fear! A leak from the SDNY and two of Trumps key surrogates were well plugged in at the SDNY. The rats were panicking
Rudy triggered them with that tease and the next day Comey fires off a letter to congress as if they had just found these emails but in reality had been sitting on them a month
For the next 7 days the smoke and mirrors that the FBI pulled on the public was very poorly done and not believable, their only hope was Hillary winning.

Guess what SHE DID NOT
Comey and company after spending months supposedly going thru the 30,000 emails HRC turned over, wants the public to believe they did a sort and went through 680,000 plus in a week? This was laughable, but when HRC won, it would all be washed away.

She didn't
The utter absurdity of the notion that by "technical wizardry" as Comey put it they were able to finish sorting and reading the 680,000 plus emails. And on top of that, where they started with only 30,000 emails HRC turned over, they had no new ones out of 680,000 more? #bullshit
Of course we now know thru congressional testimony they only actually looked at a handful of the 680K. The entire Clinton email investigation was a complete sham from the minute Comey swapped out the investigative team.
I'm still curious to what happened to all those Grand Jury interviews & hearings. Are they under seal? Are they still simmering beneath the surface. Something tells me the latter. After digging deep thru the Hillary vault the chain of custody isn't near as bad as I once thought
