‘This was all planned’: Former IG says Hillary, State Dept. are lying

Posted by on Jan 31, 2016 at 10:14 am

The State Department is lying when it says it didn’t know until it was too late that Hillary Clinton was improperly using personal e-mails and a private server to conduct official business — because it never set up an agency e-mail address for her in the first place, the department’s former top watchdog says.

“This was all planned in advance” to skirt rules governing federal records management, said Howard J. Krongard, who served as the agency’s inspector general from 2005 to 2008.

The Harvard-educated lawyer points out that, from Day One, Clinton was never assigned and never used a state.gov e-mail address like previous secretaries.

“That’s a change in the standard. It tells me that this was premeditated. And this eliminates claims by the State Department that they were unaware of her private e-mail server until later,” Krongard said in an exclusive interview. “How else was she supposed to do business without e-mail?”

He also points to the unusual absence of a permanent inspector general during Clinton’s entire 2009-2013 term at the department. He said the 5¹/₂-year vacancy was unprecedented.

“This is a major gap. In fact, it’s without precedent,” he said. “It’s the longest period any department has gone without an IG.”

    this was all planned in advance all right

    it wasnt just about skirting rules for federal records management though

    this is all about top secret and higher info getting on a public hackable server for whoever wanted to see it

    its no coincidence that huma “muslim brotherhood” abedin is at the center of this

    this is straight up spying and treason

    obama let her be secstate so she could funnel and launder boatloads of money through the clinton foundation in return for her silence about where he was born and who his real father is while at the same time allow her to let things like this happen in the furtherance of the decline and eventual demise of this country

    thats what all this is about and nothing else

    and no, loretta lynch aint going to do nothing about this…this is what she was brought in for…to handle this one problem and this one problem only

    she aint gonna do nothin and at some point people are going to say she aint doin nothin and then everybody else is going to point theyre fingers at them and say look at all those racist misogynists

    this is a repeat…its a rerun…its in syndication…weve all seen this before but only some of us know it

    the rest vote for hillary or bernie or rubio or kasich or jeb
