(National Sentinel) Two Systems: Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s lengthy report regarding his investigation into the FBI’s bogus probe of Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified information is becoming famous for what it didn’t say.
It didn’t name all the names of FBI and Justice Department officials who expressed an anti-Trump bias. Heck, Horowitz couldn’t even admit that there was political bias despite all of those damning anti-POTUS emails exchanged between Peter Strzok and former FBI lawyer Lisa Page.
The report also brushed past the fact that President Obama himself emailed Clinton on her unsecured server using a pseudonym — something he brazenly lied about.
In an interview with CBS News‘ “60 Minutes,” then-President Obama told interviewer Bill Plante that he first learned about Clinton’s use of a private email server “through news reports.”
But during a White House press briefing, press secretary Josh Earnest admitted Obama did in fact exchange emails with firstname.lastname@example.org, strongly suggesting he was aware of Clinton’s private email account.
Wikileaks released Clinton’s emails, including between her and Obama during the 2016 election. His pseudonym was email@example.com.
Funny — Horowitz’s report barely addressed this. Why?
On pages 88 and 89 of his report on the topic of former President Obama’s emails:
In this section, we address the Midyear team’s efforts to obtain email content from the accounts of the three senior aides that had the most email communication with Clinton—Jake Sullivan, Cheryl Mills, and Huma Abedin. Sullivan was Clinton’s Deputy Chief of Staff for Policy from January 2009 to February 2011 and Director of Policy and Planning at the State Department from February 2011 to January 2013; Mills served as, among other things, Clinton’s Chief of Staff during Clinton’s tenure as Secretary; and Abedin served as Clinton’s Deputy Chief of Staff during Clinton’s tenure. According to the LHM, the FBI discovered through its review of emails from various sources that only 13 individuals had direct email contact with Clinton, and that Sullivan, Abedin, and Mills “accounted for 68 percent of the emails sent directly to Clinton.”[footnote] 75 State Department employees told the FBI that they considered emailing Sullivan, Mills, or Abedin the equivalent of emailing Clinton directly.
Here is the only place in the IG report that
75 FBI analysts and Prosecutor 2 told us that former President Barack Obama was one of the 13 individuals with whom Clinton had direct contact using her clintonemail.com account. Obama, like other high level government officials, used a pseudonym for his username on his official government email account. The analysts told us that they questioned whether Obama’s email address (combined with salutations that revealed that the emails were being exchanged with Obama) or other information contained in the emails were classified and, thus, sent the emails to relevant USIC agencies for classification review. However, they stated that the USIC agencies determined that none of the emails contained classified information.
Horowitz elected to have this information buried in his report, despite the fact that, by law, all federal officials must use government email accounts, especially for top-level communications.
The reason is clear: Security.
The FBI admitted, belatedly, that Clinton’s email server was hacked. That means that Obama’s communications were also likely hacked.
But as usual, because we have two systems of justice, he — like Hillary — will get away with it.
Drain the swamp, POTUS Trump.
