Video: FBI “A-team” getting “extremely serious” on Hillary e-mail probe

posted at 4:01 pm on August 28, 2015 by Ed Morrissey

While Hillary Clinton continued to brush off questions about her secret e-mail server at the DNC summer meeting in Minneapolis, the FBI has grown a lot more interested in it. Two sources within the investigation tell Fox News’ Catherine Herridge that they have an “A-Team” working the case, and that it has become “extremely serious.” One familiar statute has taken a central role in the probe:

An FBI “A-team” is leading the “extremely serious” investigation into Hillary Clinton’s server and the focus includes a provision of the law pertaining to “gathering, transmitting or losing defense information,” an intelligence source told Fox News.

The section of the Espionage Act is known as 18 US Code 793.

A separate source, who also was not authorized to speak on the record, said the FBI will further determine whether Clinton should have known, based on the quality and detail of the material, that emails passing through her server contained classified information regardless of the markings. The campaign’s standard defense and that of Clinton is that she “never sent nor received any email that was marked classified” at the time.

It is not clear how the FBI team’s findings will impact the probe itself. But the details offer a window into what investigators are looking for — as the Clinton campaign itself downplays the controversy.

We’ve mentioned 18 USC 793 on several occasions, but let’s familiarize everyone with it again. Subparagraphs (d), (e), and (f) are the pertinent clauses for mishandling sensitive materials:

(d) Whoever, lawfully having possession of, access to, control over, or being entrusted with any document, writing, code book, signal book, sketch, photograph, photographic negative, blueprint, plan, map, model, instrument, appliance, or note relating to the national defense, or information relating to the national defense which information the possessor has reason to believe could be used to the injury of the United States or to the advantage of any foreign nation, willfully communicates, delivers, transmits or causes to be communicated, delivered, or transmitted or attempts to communicate, deliver, transmit or cause to be communicated, delivered or transmitted the same to any person not entitled to receive it, or willfully retains the same and fails to deliver it on demand to the officer or employee of the United States entitled to receive it; or

(e) Whoever having unauthorized possession of, access to, or control over any document, writing, code book, signal book, sketch, photograph, photographic negative, blueprint, plan, map, model, instrument, appliance, or note relating to the national defense, or information relating to the national defense which information the possessor has reason to believe could be used to the injury of the United States or to the advantage of any foreign nation, willfully communicates, delivers, transmits or causes to be communicated, delivered, or transmitted, or attempts to communicate, deliver, transmit or cause to be communicated, delivered, or transmitted the same to any person not entitled to receive it, or willfully retains the same and fails to deliver it to the officer or employee of the United States entitled to receive it; or

(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,
(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
(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 superior officer

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

 

Emphases mine. Bear in mind that the material does not have to be classified in order to violate this law. This covers any sensitive material relating to national defense. The mishandling does not have to be intentional or malicious either, but only grossly negligent to become a crime. If the FBI is taking a long look at 18 USC 793, then that is very bad news for Hillary Clinton, whose grossly negligent decision to use a private, unsecured, and unauthorized communications system for official business would be the root of all violations within it.

If the material was classified — and the agencies that originated it claim it was“classified when they were sent and are classified now” — then 18 USC 1924 comes into play automatically, too, for unauthorized retention. Both carry potential prison terms, and it’s almost certain that this kind of indiscriminate and negligent handling would result in prosecution for anyone else.

Hillary has started acknowledging that it was foolish to use a private server for official business. Unfortunately, this A-team won’t pity a fool in these circumstances. Will the Department of Justice?

Hillary claimed the be the “official” who was the decider of which email was personal and which was official business. The only problem with this is she was long gone from State when the server was cleaned. This means there was no representative of the peoples documents there when this took place.

Let’s not forget that BHO has the means, and therefore the will, to have intercepted every single email sent to and from HRC’s email server completely legally due to “natsec concerns brought to him by others” which HE is not required to advise the public on till the moment of his choosing?

..FNS has fallen out of favor with me — being largely comprised of dickless media-whores — but that is one woman whom I greatly admire. She is quiet, unassuming, relentless, steadfast, and delivers the goods. Anytime I happen to pass by the cable channel and she is on, all activity drops and I watch with rapt attention.

You would do well to read her wiki bio. She makes 900 large per year (and is worth every red farthing) and sued the crap out of FNS because they would not include a clause in her contract. The suit was thrown out of court with her 95% rise in salary being cited. But she has some stones. I mean, this is a woman who donated part of her liver to her ailing infant son. (The last time that happened was when Hannibal Lecter got one of his patients to give up his, I ‘spose.)

But if she is on Empress Pantsuit’s ass, then Hillary should he afraid..very afraid.

If we were talking about a run of the mill Pol, like some state Sen from Cook County, or Louisiana, etc I wouldn’t be surprised.

But Hill, Bill and those of their ilk (with no loss of help from Progressive Cheer Squads) are assured (in their mind) they are Untouchable.

If the Feds can’t get at least ONE of the “Inner Circle” to break the Omerta oath they seem to require to BE a member of said circle, then it’s going to be a harder enough trial.

Clinton & Co. are arrogant enough to believe they could be the rap, or count on they fawning sycophants to muddy the waters enough to create Reasonable Doubt.

Right now, it comes down to just HOW well did they wipe the server…IS there another backup copy somewhere…and can they prove at least ONE or more of those e-mails contained enough to nail her on mishandling of NatSec protocols?

The icing of course if there is a few Benghazi documents and IP hop trails to show it was either hacked or intentionally given to third parties for SOME reason.

You underestimate Obama, as the Clintons did in 2007-08. He isn’t so smart, but he is devious and cunning.

Obama will string her along with the possibility of a full pardon on his way out the door. If she blabs on him, forget it; that will keep her mouth shut.

But of course there will be no pardon, because once he is out the door Obama won’t care. He plans a “foundation” bigger than Clinton’s and a long retirement with Secret Service protection.

The strongest rebuttal to Hillary’s assertion that she “didn’t know” material was classified is that she as SoS was responsible for determining the classification requirements for any material produced by her department. In fact, she fired more than one person for using personal email at work, and that poor guy’s emails included NO classified information.

There is only one move the Clinton’s can make. They will have to seek political-asylum in Switzerland. A close personal friend, Marc Rich, was able to find freedom by doing this. With the majority of their wealth hidden in private-accounts, they could work out a method to bribe a future American President, who would issue a full-pardon for Hillary Clinton. /sarc

Good article. I’m especially fond of the input from the liberal Brookings Institution.

“It is unusual for a president to have so much of his agenda contingent on judicial review,” said Darrell West, director of governance studies for the Brookings Institution.

Well, it certainly is unusual, all right. I wonder how we got to this awful point?

Oh, wait, there’s more.

“It is a commentary on our current political situation that legislative gridlock has forced presidential action through executive decisions and this then created the need for judicial review.

Ah, it’s all the fault of those nasty Republicans. I might have known…

Defenestratus on August 28, 2015 at 4:23 PM

I don’t think it’s a coincidence that the FBI noose is slowly tightening around Hillary while Biden is being encouraged to run for president.

Which also explains the claim in the media that Hillary has locked up 1/5 of the superdelegates for the primary. Just a reminder to Obama that it won’t be so easy to push her aside and throw the nomination to Creepy Joe.

Ultimately, I expect Hillary will get a complete pardon before being charged with any crimes, but will announce that she is coincidentally withdrawing from the campaign for president. Just how good a deal she gets depends on just how much dirt she has on Obama relative to how much dirt he has on her.

There Goes the Neighborhood on August 28, 2015 at 7:38 PM

I have to agree with you… Catherine Herridge is extremely intelligent and tenacious – she’s the only reason I’ll watch Special Report. Jennifer Griffin is a pretty sharp tack too.

Unless a Special Prosecutor is assigned – I don’t see the Justice Department doing squat.

I think Killary probably does have some Benghazi dirt on the Preezy: his plan to move guns out of Libya and into the hands of the JV team in Syria.

Not exactly.

They could stop it for the duration of the campaign but, absent a full pardon, they could not stop the case from being reopened under the next President.

And Obama is unlikely to pardon Hillary, although he may dangle the possibility to ensure she doesn’t cause him problems for the last 510 of his misbegotten tenure.

They might have a check in/check out system which tells which employees have accessed classified materials, and onto which computers they downloaded them, if it is electronic.

It would be interesting to know if Hilary took things she should not have been looking at/none of her business.

Since the Sandy Burlar incident, where Sandy Burger stole data from a file, the Clintons have always been concious of the details.

The Clinton’s inadvertently ended up with 900 FBI files by accident when they were in the White House, that is why you feel suspicious about their activities. “Mrs. Clinton could not recall how that happened.”

Why do we want anyone like that NOT disqualified from future employment at the government? She should be disqualified already.

I think slick willy’s wife is a lying c…. like him and would further destroy this country in a heart beat for personal gain.
However what about the person/department sending the email, why would they send classified material to a non “.gov or .mil” email account?
