Hillary Clinton Lawyers to be Investigated

Hillary Clinton lawyersFormer Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton, is set to travel the country to promote her book entitled “What happened.” Tickets to hear her ‘personal, raw, detailed and surprisingly funny story,’ at the price of up to $1,200 per ticket, are selling out fast. Parts of her live tour will focus on her loss of the 2016 Presidential election, in which she won the popular vote but lost the White House. It seems her book will now need an extra chapter, as Hillary’s lawyers will be investigated for their alleged roles in deleting emails.

While serving as Secretary of State under the Obama Administration, Clinton used a private email server to conduct business, rather than use the official State Department email account maintained on federal servers. During the Benghazi hearings, Clinton received a subpoena to hand over emails related to the investigation into the 2012 deadly attack on U.S. facilities in Libya. Clinton handed over select records, and allowed her team of aides and lawyers to delete over 31,000 emails. While under investigation, Clinton’s server was wiped clean using BleachBit, a software program intended to prevent recovery and hide traces of deleted files. Immunity deals were given to some of the players responsible for the destruction of Clinton’s emails during the FBI’s and House Judiciary Committee’s investigations. The FBI ultimately concluded that no clear evidence of intention to violate law was found. However, Clinton and her colleagues handling of classified material was deemed “extremely careless.”

According to the FBI, Clinton’s decision to use a private email server posed a national security risk. During a press conference, when asked about wiping her server clean, the Democratic presidential candidate coyly replied, “Like with a cloth or something?” Her long-standing cavalier attitude may now need an adjustment. On Monday morning, a hearing took place whereby Circuit Court Judge Paul F. Harris ordered Clinton’s lawyers to face a bar investigation amidst “allegations of destroying evidence.” Three lawyers stand accused of helping the former Secretary of State to delete her private emails. The judge announced that the complaints lodged against David E. Kendall, Cheryl Mills, and Heather Samuelson were “egregious” and could not be dismissed as frivolous. The three Maryland licensed lawyers could face professional sanctions if they are found guilty of misconduct.

Judge Harris’ ruling came after Ty Clevenger, a Texas attorney who lives in New York, filed a complaint arguing that Clinton’s lawyers engaged in misconduct by destroying evidence. The FBI initially denied an open-records request into its investigation, citing a lack of sufficient public interest to overcome Clinton’s privacy rights. Mr. Clevenger appealed to the Justice Department which recently ruled that it would expedite his request, indicating that the case meets the threshold of public interest. Clinton, who claims she relied on her legal team to sort through her electronic communications, will now be faced with more questions from the public on her handling of emails; a painful subject she believes helped cost her the election.

She is a scoundrel. A diabolical liar.
A treasonist. A communist. A thief (remember the China, furniture, curtains, etc. she stole from the White House). Why anyone want to support her is unimaginable! And Billy is almost as bad.

WHAT???? Lack of public interest? Who are they trying to kid?

Just another drowning in the Washington Swamp.

Ah, yes. I think back fondly to the days when we had a government that one just MIGHT consider honest and working for the people. Yep, I think back about 200 years. Didn’t take ’em very long to pervert the Constitution, did it?

There never was anyone more guilty than Bill Clinton, in the impeachment hearings and he got away with that. Hillary will come out smelling like a rose. Relax everybody

Everybody…e-v-e-r-y-b-o-d-y knew she and all of her encampment committed a felony from the very beginning. We all also knew our own Justice System would allow her and her husband to commit any crime they wish. This is why she lost. We are addressing the Justice System.

At this point in time it seems to me that the FBI is not a criminal investigative unit, seeking the truth, but is a criminal unit in itself, hellbent on deceiving and confusing the unsuspecting portion of American Citizens. Who else, but the unsuspecting would by into the bogus they continue to spew?

What took them so long? Hillary and Bill have been riding this wave of crime for a long, long time. You have to wonder what else they’ve been up to.
For you legal types out there, is she able to profit from her crimes by selling this book? After all, getting away with what she has done and then possibly being elected PRESIDENT would have been the crime of the century! But you won’t see it in the MSM.
I’ve heard on local radio that Amazon and other vendors have discounted her book 40%. Okay, so she can spend 40% less time in an orange jumpsuit…
While the’re at it, they should investigate FBI’s Comey, who declared Hillary innocent way too early in the process.
I am SO not interested in hearing from her ever again.

This is the sort of Article that made me join AMAC and ignore AARP.

I can’t even understand how she won the popular vote? We have known what the Clintons are all about since the 1960’s with Bill’s pot smoking/draft dodging days and Hillary’s college thesis enamorment with Saul Alinsky; although most of us didn’t learn about this until he ran for president in 1992. It just goes to show how corruption begets corruption and the moneyed interests supporters put their agenda ahead of the welfare of the country. Everyone has their price and we know what the Clinton’s price is; Pay to play!

I can’t stand her flippant attitude and response to wiping her server clean; “You mean with a cloth?” She insults our integrity as voters and intelligence as citizens. And then she wonders why she lost because she is in total denial. All the women lining up behind her, such as Madeleine Albright, and telling women they must vote for her reminds me of the most orwellian totalitarian liberal power scheme ever concocted. Thank God enough women were not brainwashed by this tactic to throw their vote her way.

There is yet still hope for America. The wheels of democracy turn slow for good reason. Sometimes the wheels of justice turn even slower. “In the end everything will be alright. If it isn’t alright, it isn’t the end.” (from the movie: The Best Marigold Hotel). I trust the justice department to do the right thing eventually. I also trust the FBI to do the right thing, eventually, once we eliminate the political appointees beholden to their masters. The we will know for sure that the only Russian influence on the election was the resulted from democratic party stupidity. Churchill said you can always count on America to do the right thing after she has tried everything else. I think we have tried most everything else. Now it is time for truth. Let’s hope the lamestream media finally puts that message in its pipe and smokes it instead of reporting only sensationalism. Start reporting the facts without a biased slant on everything. You can fool some of the people all the time but you can’t fool all the people all the time.

Ha! $1,200 to hear her. I guess the Clintons need to add to their Clinton Foundation slush fund.
I hope the team of lawyers stick to their guns. She should have to answer for deleting the emails among other questionable things she did – like the money missing from the State Department and Benghazi.

Hillary is a slimy lying traitor and a phony. She lost …when asked what her platform was she had no answer, then stumbled incoherently about women being discriminated !! she could NOT say one reason why she should be elected. She should be iN Leavenworth with her lying felon husband. What flops !! Oh — did you know that Chelsea is entitled to a political leadership role ? What has she done?

The only way the FBI will ever get my trust in them agin is to fully investigate and prosecute Hillary. Starting with Benghazi. After hearing Tucker last night I have no trust in the FBI until they really clean house. The Obama holdovers must go and go NOW.
If we had a real FBI they would not stop with Hillary, Fast and Furious and IRS needs to be next.

Her new book is set to be the shortest book in history – a whopping TWO words, “I LOST” LOL Of course she will never admit it and will blame her loss on anything and/or anyone else until she passes away.

Are these the same people who were in the basement of The Department of State building deciding what information to hand over to the Benghazi Hearings after the ATTACK ??

Anyone else in this country had done what Clinton’s done and her attorneys have done would all be sitting in jail with orange jumpsuits on! When did she become above the law? What does she have over these folks that always seem to say they “care” about social justice and “fairness” but let their elitest off the hook? Hypocrites the whole lot of them! It’s time the left was exposed for what they really are!!!! Power hungry, opportunist who don’t give a rat’s backside for anyone!!!!

Its been difficult to convict her when all the key witnesses keep ending up: “DOA – suicide – by firearm – to back of head – from a distance of 10 feet”!

H. Clinton and her lawyers should be investigated both of which are guilty of putting the nation and its security at risk.
