How To Prepare Your Downline For State Executions

Start preparing your downline for a DJT VICTORY. However, we will need to execute the convicted traitors so this never happens again to our Republic. A good way to get the Overton Window open to these ideas is to pass a few memes here and there that shows what could be coming.

It’s called predictive programming. They have been doing this to us for a very long time. Now we turn the tables. Two can play the game.

Trump’s Storm Is Here – The Hammer Is About To Drop

So many BIG problems to fix before we move forward…

Investigative journalist Liz Crokin joins SGT Report to discuss the latest breaking news including the accusation that Bill Clinton raped a young boy who is now 26-years old, and the investigator who broke the story is now dead. Liz firmly believes that all of the pieces of the puzzle are falling into place so that Hillary Clinton will be arrested before November 11th of this year.

Clapper Ratting Out Obama Is An Extremely Important Development

https://s15-us2.startpage.com/cgi-bin/serveimage?url=https%3A%2F%2Fi.ytimg.com%2Fvi%2FYEES-MUS-eM%2Fmaxresdefault.jpg&sp=3477317a9bf8b5860d89346eb8c3355e
1. IMPORTANT: Clapper throwing Obama under the bus is an extremely important development.

Remember, though: he ISN’T referring to the FISA fraud being exposed 24/7, or the Mueller clownshow.

The scandal Clapper’s referring to is MUCH worse than either. Some thoughts.

2. The FISA fraud being exposed is, without a doubt, the most shocking abuse of power in US history. The FBI/DOJ used unvetted info, by-passing strict Woods verification, to illegally obtain a Title I FISA warrant on an innocent US citizen.

It can’t get any worse. Or can it?

3. Question for you:

Why would they need to get a FISA TI, when they’d already been spying on Team Trump (and other GOP candidates, not to mention Sanders), since 2015?

They wouldn’t, right? Unless, of course, the aim was to use the FISA to legitimize EXISTING illegal spying.

4. Don’t get me wrong.

This FISA fraud on @carterwpage is illegal, may end up destroying the FBI and will result in jail terms for those involved.

BUT it’s important not to keep our eyes off the larger scandal, that birthed it.

One leading directly to one man:

BARACK OBAMA.

5. Many forget that under the FISA Act, the Executive is given power to order WARRANTLESS SURVEILLANCE, with no judicial or Congressional oversight.

This power is restricted to targets OUTSIDE the US, communicating with persons INSIDE the US.

washingtonpost.com/world/national…

6. The FISA Act (2008), esp s 702, is no more than the legislative coding of an NSA program called ‘Stellar Wind’, a warrantless spying project, started by Dubya under The Patriot Act.

en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stellar_W…

7. Obama expanded the power of the Executive under FISA, in 2012.

Stellar Wind went totally out of control, turbo-charged by NSAs PRISM Program, allowing the NSA to hoover up the explosion of data held by Google, Facebook & Yahoo (and others).

en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/PRISM_(su…

8. We only know about PRISM due to Edward Snowden’s 2013 leaks.He also revealed the existence of the crown in the NSA surveillance jewel, a Division called ‘Special Source Operations’.

en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special_S…

9. Frightened yet?

You should be.

Consider this. The SSO capability allowed it to collect data the equivalent of one Library of Congress – every 14.4 seconds.

And that was in 2006.

Snowden delivered a chilling warning, as well.

10. ‘The extent of mass data collection was far greater than the public knew and included what he characterized as “dangerous” and “criminal” activities.’

That was in 2014.

11. I’ve always been intrigued by this terrifying interview of the execrable Maxine Waters on Feb 11, 2013. In it she describes a secret database that Obama had built that’s ‘very, very powerful.’

12. SEPARATE from NSA.

Interviewer: ‘In terms of the ‘Organizing for America’ that he’s now shifting to become a 501C4 ?’

Waters: ‘That’s right..that database will have information about everything on every individual in ways that it’s never been done before.’

13. Obama LOVED spying on people.

But he would have HATED being spied on. I’m certain he built his own database.

A malign narcissist, the feeling of power, as well as the ability it gave him to manipulate and terrorize American citizens, would have been IRRESISTIBLE.

14. We KNOW that Obama was illegally spying on domestic targets (aka innocent Americans who disagreed with, or opposed him) from at least 2009.

15. Obama was illegally spying on reporters, too, including James Rosen (FOX), Sharyl Attkisson, Sean Hannity, Sara Carter and no doubt hundreds of others.

When all is revealed (it needs to be), we could be talking about many THOUSANDS of US citizens, inc members of Congress.

16. Among them would be Donald J Trump.

There’s absolutely no doubt about it. Trump and Obama LOATHE each other. Obama would have been keen to target and if possible, destroy Trump.

The 2016 election would be a perfect opportunity.

17. Another thing – NSA’s SSO team were PAYING Google, FB etc for their data.

I’m sure that Obama was paying friendly reporters to use the information he had, against Trump. BTW is Maggie Haberman back on twitter yet? Just askin’.

18. Back to the main argument.

IMO, Clapper is NOT talking about FISA abuse of Carter Page. He’s talking about Obama’s illegal abuse of exec power under FISA, to order warrantless surveillance, away from any oversight, to frame Trump.

If I go down, Obama, YOU go down too.’

19. The MO is becoming clear : use FISA to illegally unmask the ID of US citizens from overseas-sourced communications, then use those comms by leaking it to media slaves (many paid), as well as to frame political opponents.

THREE examples:

20. Papadopoulos – his main international with Mifsud, Millian, Halper and others? ALL overseas.

@DonaldJTrumpJr ? The Trump Tower meeting comms came from OVERSEAS actors.

@GenFlynn ? his comms with Russian Kislyak? Overseas.

Connecting dots?

21. So you have Obama’s warrantless surveillance being unmasked by his key apparatchiks (Rice, Power etc), shared with the Clinton campaign, funnelled via Fusion GPS into the Steele memos & leaked to media slaves.
22. Then legitimized AND augmented via Brennan’s CIA imprimatur & illegally obtained FISA warrants, engineered by a corrupt DOJ/FBI cabal.

The greatest crime in American history.

23. A conspiracy to frame & destroy an innocent citizen, designed and executed by evil, corrupt criminals.

Citizen Trump. Candidate Trump. POTUS-elect Trump. POTUS Trump.

It’s an ONGOING effort. One that is dangerous, but IS collapsing.

24. See, under FISA, POTUS can order warrantless spying on the recommendation of his AG & ODNI.

Those two would be AG Loretta Lynch – & who else?

Why, ODNI James Clapper.

Who is now DIRECTLY implicating one Barack Hussein Obama.

25. #SpyGate is REAL, folks, but it’s MUCH worse than this despicable FISA application.

Trump’s POTUS now. And he’s going to take down these crooks, starting with the FBI/DOJ gang.

Then he moves onto bigger fish. The good news?

He’s only getting started.

#MAGA

The end.

26. ADDENDUM: someone (thank you) sent me this incredible interview from 2010 about Obama’s malignant narcissism, by @samvaknin Sam Vaknin, himself diagnosed with NPD and a world expert in the area.

Well worth your time:

Brennan, Clapper and Comey Cry Wolf to Avoid Hanging for Treason

The Transparent Positioning of Brennan, Clapper and Comey…

Just a quick note on the current tone and confrontational content coming from former FBI Director James Comey, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, and former CIA Director John Brennan.

 

There is a great deal of discussion about the combative and hate-riddled language coming from Comey, Clapper and particularly Brennan.  Be aware their combative posture as an actual risk avoidance strategy.

Each of the three heavily corrupt officials engaged in the most substantive abuse of their intelligence positions for political purposes.  Each of them weaponized their offices against their political opposition.  The scope and severity therein is a story yet to surface; and unlike prior examples of weaponizing the DOJ and IRS, there is no administration in place to protect them from investigative sunlight.

Therefore the Comey, Clapper and Brennan defense strategy is to position themselves politically and lean on their like-minded media allies for support.  Their adversarial posture is intended to draw the Trump administration into political combat, thereby  diminishing any investigative outcomes behind a false shield of political prosecution.

In short this crew needs to frame any element of accountability -based on their prior behavior- as simple political retribution.  According to their playbook, the more aggressive, nasty, hate-filled and oppositional they are in their public displays; the greater likelihood they can call any indictments political retaliation.  This is a historic approach.

In order for the approach to work, the public must be very well aware of their collective antagonisms and attacks against the current administration.  This is why their media allies emphasize each occurrence so much.

If the larger American public see the Comey, Clapper and Brennan attacks as commonplace, the more likely a larger segment of that same public will see any corresponding DOJ legal proceeding as retaliation for those attacks.

Once this defense strategy is deployed, do not expect to see it diminish.  Quite the contrary; the strategy is contingent upon ever-increasing and more outlandish attacks.

Historically this approach has a proven track record of success amid Democrats because the media (writ large) generally aligns with it.  [See Bob Menendez for a recent example]

John Brennan Viciously Attacks POTUS Trump For Labeling James Clapper a “Lying Machine”

Fired Commie Traitor McCabe Lawyers Up, Kept “Personal Memos” Of Trump

https://conservativebase.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/2018/01/Andrew-McCabe.jpg

Well, in a phone interview with CBS News’ senior investigator producer Pat Milton, McCabe said he rejected the findings in the (Inspector General’s) report, calling it “misleading and unfair.” Obviously.

“I strongly believe this is the latest chapter in a yearlong attack on my credibility and service to the country,” McCabe said. 

Well that, or simply the facts are finally coming out, and until refuted, they confirm the corruption, party bias and cronyism that many had said is prevalent at the FBI.

As for the full OIG report due any day now, recall that the former FBI assistant director Chris Swecker said that it will contain “some pure TNT”, so that’s something else to look forward to as the public decides if the yearlong attack on McCabe’s credibility – which started with the WSJ’s October 2016 report that a “Clinton Ally Aided Campaign of FBI Official’s Wife” – is justified.

McCabe also said that “to have my career end in this way, and to be accused of lacking candor when at worst I was distracted in the midst of chaotic events, is incredibly disappointing and unfair. But it will not erase the important work I was privileged to be a part of, the results of which will in the end be revealed for the country to see.”

Some, like the president, would disagree.

So what are McCabe’s next steps?

Well, it appears the former deputy director will not go down without a fight, and as the Daily Beast reports, McCabe has lawyered up, hiring Michael Bromwich of the Bromwich Group, who confirmed to The Daily Beast that he is “representing McCabe for the purposes of the matter that led to his firing.”

That McCabe is retaining counsel is not surprising. What is, however, and may add a potential twist to this latest battle between Trump and the FBI, is that according to the AP, McCabe kept personal memos regarding Trump that are similar to the notes compiled by dismissed FBI chief James Comey detailing interactions with him.

The AP notes, that it was not immediately clear whether any of McCabe’s memos have been turned over to special counsel Robert Mueller, whose criminal investigation is examining Trump campaign ties to Russia and possible obstruction of justice, or been requested by Mueller.

McCabe’s memos include details of interactions with the president, among other topics, according to an AP source “with direct knowledge of the situation who wasn’t authorized to discuss the memos publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.”

The disclosure came hours after Trump called McCabe’s firing by Attorney General Jeff Sessions as a “a great day for Democracy.”

Foreign Youtuber Expose US Congress Filled With Treason

“What if the democracy we thought we were serving no longer exists, and the Republic has become the very evil we’ve been fighting to destroy?” — Sen. Padme Amidala

All Americans live in an unaccountable police state. Make peace with resistance because our choices are rather stark.

https://www.infowars.com/congress-to-investigate-wasserman-schultz-it-aide-scandal/

… the following demonstrate once again that they, the investigators and investigated are all in on it, against America together.

American Hammer and Sickle

Incremental collectivism is difficult to spot; it is sloth-like in its deliberation, but it does move and sometimes it helps to look back down the road to see how far it has come. Maybe that’s also the only way to see where it’s going.

Americans continue to think they live in a republic, but the republic is alive only when the Constitution is being faithfully read and adhered to, not when it is largely disregarded or interpreted into nothingness, especially where case law is considered “settled.”

What clause allows for an establishment of a Department of Education? Well, the “necessary and proper” clause, of course. Except that the necessary and proper clause only applies to those limited powers enumerated in the body of the Constitution. Same with the “Commerce Clause” they have used to implement all manner of collectivism.

So, we discover that a school board dumps Common Core and grades soar in that school district. The point is that all of these things government takes control of are not simply mismanaged or screwed up, it is the intended purpose of these programs to deaden the senses of the people, encourage stupidity and make them open to the propaganda for collectivism and generally wear down the power of individualism and capitalism, while blaming individualism and capitalism for the dysfunction the government program is intentionally creating.

Our treasury is swamped by collectivist programs like Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, pensions and everything government has promised to provide for the people. Collectivists will point to the military budget as the culprit that dominates the budget, but it is the promises made to future generations that will bring the system down. This is because we allowed the con to be played. The military budget is huge, but largely due to the fact that it protects every socialist government in the Western world, who do not bother to build up their own military defenses when they can count on the United States military power to defend them against Russia or China or both. Since we have gone socialist, we will not be able to do that for them or ourselves.

And, they will blame individualism and capitalism for the failures of socialism and collectivism. Eventually, this inevitability plays out. Who will defend the principles that allowed the United States to grow from a small, largely agrarian nation to the powerful industrial defender it has been for the past hundred plus years?

We are at a point now where former CIA Directors suggest a coup against the sitting President of the United States and the collectivist press cheers the idea on. And yet, this treason is allowed. That is how far we have come toward a collectivist state. The whole layer of government just below the surface is rabid communist and it took someone like Trump to expose them. But, we do nothing about it, we look on in curiosity, because it is the President’s task to do something with his entire law enforcement apparatus available to him.

Or, we just throw up the hammer and sickle.

BREAKING: Romanian Hacker ‘Guccifer’, With Access To Clinton Emails Found Dead

Christian Times Newspaper has learned that Guccifer, the Romanian hacker currently being held on charges for hacking Hillary Clinton’s personal email server, has been found in his Virginia jail cell, dead of an apparent suicide.

Guccifer, also known as Marcel Lazar Lehel, was extradited to the United States to face charges after openly admitting to repeatedly hacking Hillary Clinton’s email server.  This claim occurred in the midst of an FBI probe that was concluded this morning by Director Comey.

Lehel claimed that the server was “like an open orchid on the Internet” and that it “was easy … easy for me, for everybody.”

After the FBI cleared Clinton of any charges Tuesday morning, a rumor began circulating that Guccifer was missing from his jail cell.  Tuesday night, reports began spreading that the Romanian hacker was found after the evening’s dinner hanging from a rope in his personal cell.

Comey, in his statement Tuesday morning, alluded to the fact that American enemies and individual actors most likely accessed Hillary Clinton’s emails, but Guccifer was the only person to come forward with knowledge of their contents.

Reports are still developing, and CTN is waiting on statements from authorities.

It is worth noting that the Clinton White House faced allegations that Hillary and her aides were involved in the questionable suicide of White House employee Vince Foster in 1995.

First “Shocking” Deposition In Clinton Email Case Reveals She Did Not Use A Password

https://i1.wp.com/www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/images/user5/imageroot/2016/05/13/lewis%20lukens.jpg

U.S. Ambassador Lewis Lukens’s sworn testimony in the case of Hillary Clinton’s privatization of the U.S. Secretary of State’s email is the first evidence to be released in the Clinton email cases, and it was published on May 26th at the website of Judicial Watch, the organization that originally brought the suit. Headlining “First Deposition Testimony from Clinton Email Discovery Released”, it reported that:

Judicial Watch today released the deposition transcript of Ambassador Lewis Lukens, former deputy assistant secretary of state and executive director of the State Department’s executive secretariat.  The transcript is available here.  Amb. Lukens was deposed last week as part of the discovery granted to Judicial Watch by U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan in response to its Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit involving former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s unsecured, non-government email system (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:13-cv-01363)).

Lukens is the first of seven depositions of former Clinton top aides and State Department officials that Judicial Watch has scheduled over the next four weeks.  Also to be deposed are Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin, as well as top State Department official Patrick Kennedy, and former State IT employee Bryan Pagliano.

In his testimony, Lukens described his State Department role:

I’ve been a Foreign Service officer for 27 years. I’ve served in Southern China; in the Ivory Coast; in Sydney, Australia; in Dublin, Ireland; in Baghdad; Vancouver, British Columbia; Dakar, Senegal; and three tours in Washington, D.C., as well as my current position in San Francisco.

While Clinton was Secretary of State, his role was heading “logistics and management support” and he had “roughly 110 employees working for me” including the “IRM” or Information Resource Management team. Also, during his questioning, he was asked “You traveled with Mrs. Clinton on all of her foreign travel?” while he was employed there, and he answered: “Yes.”

Representative excerpts from his testimony will be presented here:

While Clinton’s office was being prepared for her:

Q: Do you know if Mrs. Clinton — if the IRM office set up an e-mail address for Mrs. Clinton?
A: I don’t believe they did.
Q: Do you know why they didn’t?
A: I don’t think it was asked for.
Q: Would Mrs. Clinton have — was it required for Mrs. Clinton to ask for an e-mail address for one to be assigned to her?
A: Yes.
Q: Was it unusual — at the time did you think it was unusual that Mrs. Clinton didn’t want an e-mail address assigned to her?
A: No.
Q: Why not?
A: I’m not aware of former Secretaries of State having e-mail addresses on our system.

In other words: her having an e-mail address assigned to her was “required,” but the custom at the U.S. Department of State was to ignore this ‘requirement’.

(AUTHOR’S NOTE: Regardless of whether violating the regulations or even the law has been ignored in the past, violations are supposed to be punished or prosecuted. Prior refusal to prosecute does not constitute legal excuse for continuing refusal to prosecute: it instead constitutes a government in which some persons who are supposedly in the service of, and who are definitely being paid by, the public, are, in practice, above the regulations or even the laws — in other words, a dictatorship. However, this aspect of the questioning was not pursued.)

Lukens then said that her violation on that matter was ignored and that a “BB” or Blackberry account was instead requested by “HRC’ Hillary Rodham Clinton. Lukens’s notes indicated that he had asked HRC’s agent, “On the BB for HRC, can we chat this morning?” and “I may have thought of a workaround [to evade the State Department’s regulations] but need more info on her BB use.” He explained during this questioning of him: “So the crux of the issue was that BlackBerrys and iPhones are not allowed in the Secretary’s office suite, so the question was, how is the Secretary going to be able to check her e-mails if she’s not able to have the Blackberry at her desk with her.”

Q: And so what did you — did you propose a solution at that point?

A: So my proposal was to set up a computer on her desk, a standalone computer [not part of the State Department’s system], for her to be able to access the Internet to check her e-mails [privatized — and therefore not subject to FOIA requests or historians’ investigations].

However, Clinton’s agent insisted on a private computer also being set up “across the hall” “for her to check her BlackBerry” even though no private BlackBerry was allowed on the premises. This was to be the “workaround.”

In an email, Lukens had written, and the questioner referenced it:

Also think we should go ahead, but will await your green light, and set up a standalone PC in the Secretary’s office connected to the Internet, but not go through our system, to enable her to check her e-mails from her desk.

That proposal was accepted and was done. Then:

Q: Do you know if this setup would have been any different from the setup of other employees?
A: Yes, this would have been different.
Q: How would it have been different?
A: My understanding is that most of the employees’ computers in the State Department are connected through the State Department’s OpenNet e-mail system …
Q: So this would have been separate from the OpenNet system?
A: Correct.

He was asked why he had proposed this solution, and he said it was “For ease of access” and, “as far as I knew, there was no requirement for her to be connected to our system” (even though he had earlier said that her having an email address assigned to her in the State Department’s system, the OpenNet system, was “required”). He said that the “ease of access” would be because of there being “fewer passwords.”

He was asked whether doing things this way was necessary in order for her to be able to access the Internet from the State Department, and he said, ”the Internet is available” to employees at the office, just as anywhere.

He was asked about the inconvenience of the State Department’s passwords system, and he said that he eliminated her need for any passwords:

A: She wouldn’t have had a password.
Q: So the computer would have just been open and be able to use without going through any security features?
A: Correct.

Though he was paid by U.S. taxpayers, apparently his only concern was to please his superiors, whom he trusted unquestioningly despite their evident unconcern about “security” etc.

In further questioning of Mr. Lukens, it became clear that he never gave any thought to what the purpose behind the State Department’s regulations was: he didn’t even notice that Hillary Clinton’s buddy and top aide Huma Abedin at the Department was also using only a private email account — even though he regularly had been communicating via email with her.

* * *

And then the Daily Caller adds the following:

Shocking Deposition: Hillary Clueless On Using Computer Emails

As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton never used a password to protect her computer emails, and she was clueless about how regular emails work on a conventional computer, according to a deposition of a foreign service officer at the State Department.

She also continued to push for the use of her personal Blackberry phone in the Secretary’s highly-secured government suite even though National Security Agency (NSA) regulations barred its use in that office.

The revelations came as part of a May 18 deposition released Thursday by Judicial Watch, the nonprofit government watchdog group, of Lewis A. Lukens, a veteran 27-year foreign service officer at the State Department who served as the deputy executive secretary and executive director of the Office of the Secretariat from 2008 to 2011.

From the start of her term in January 2009, State Department officials grappled with Clinton’s ignorance of the use of basic computers.  In a January 24, 2009 email from Lukens to the department’s Undersecretary Patrick Kennedy, the foreign service officer said Clinton didn’t know how to use a computer for emails.

Citing a conversation Lukens had with Clinton Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills, he wrote, “She says problem (sic) is HRC does not know how to use a computer to do emails — only Blackberry.”  HRC refers to Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Judicial Watch attorney Michael Bekesha asked Lukens if State Department policy barred the use of personal cell phones in the Secretary’s official office suite, which is one of the most tightly secured facilities in government. Lukens explained the prohibition: “So the crux of the issue was that BlackBerrys and iPhones are not allowed in the Secretary’s office suite, so the question was, how is the Secretary going to be able to check her emails if she’s not able to have the Blackberry at her desk with her.

The NSA rebuffed multiple attempts  by Clinton to carry her Blackberry into her  office.

Lukens also said Clinton did not use a password to protect her stand-alone computer from unwanted intruders such as hackers. During the deposition, Lukens volunteered that the stand-alone computer adjacent to her suite did not have a password for protection  “She wouldn’t have had a password.”

Bekesha asked, astonished, “So the computer would have just been open and be able  to use without going through any security features?

“Correct,” Lukens replied.

He added that to the best of his knowledge, Clinton never received a waiver to use the Blackberry in the State Department headquarters.

“Do you know if — do you know if waivers or exceptions were made for State — or employees of the Office of the Secretary to use their State Department BlackBerrys within the executive suite within the office of the Secretary,” Bekesha asked.

“I’m not aware of any waivers that were made,” Lukens replied.

Mills eventually was able to set up a room “adjacent” to her secure office to allow her to look at her unsecured Blackberry emails.  But it appears that Clinton rarely used the room.

Instead, the Secretary of State would go into a hallway to use her blackberry.

Lukens said in the deposition he saw Clinton using her blackberry in the hall “maybe a half dozen times.”

The official said that he thought Clinton wanted to use the Blackberry “to stay in touch with family and friends,”

He said he didn’t know if she was conducting official business on a private server or with a non-governmental email address. Clinton used an email domain address “clintonemail.com.”

As late as 2011, State Department officials were still trying to get Clinton to use a government-issued blackberry.  But Huma Abedin, Clinton’s deputy chief of staff, shot it down, saying in an August 30, 2011 email “let’s discuss the State Blackberry, [it] doesn’t make a whole lot of sense.”

Bekesha, asked Lukens if Abedin also used a non-state department email address.

“Do you recall if Ms. Abedin used non-state.gov e-mail accounts to correspond with you,” Bekesha asked.

“Well, the answer is yes,” he replied.

Lukens displayed a great lack of curiosity about Clinton’s use of prohibited electronic devices.

“Did you ever think about whether or not she was going to use that equipment to conduct official government business,” asked the Judicial Watch attorney.

“I did not,” he replied.

Judge Sullivan, the State Department’s Inspector General and the Inspector General for the Intelligence Community have expressed deep dissatisfaction with the State Department’s examination of the Clinton emails, as well as its failure to identify classified materials on her server.

The inspector generals, unlike State Department officials, found at least two dozen emails contained either “Top Secret” designation or the highest government classification called “Special Access Programs,” or SAP.  They found up to 1200 emails contained some form of classification material.

Lukens, as executive director of the executive secretariat for the State Department, said he was only trained once to handle documents under the Freedom of Information Act — in 1989 — when he first joined the department. He’s never had a refresher course in the years since that first training.

“Do you know if any point after 1989 you received updated guidance or training about the use of email as it related to federal records and the Freedom of Information Act,” Bekesha asked.

“Not that I recall,” replied Lukens.

The State Department official also revealed that he routinely deleted official emails “to clear out space in my inbox.

He said he “kept files for various trips and things where I would keep e-mails until trips were over, but after trips were over I would often delete the files to clear — to clear out space in my inbox.”

Meanwhile, Crooked Clinton Rally Supporters Are Caught Sitting Down During National Anthem

Most Americans know it’s respectful to stand during the national anthem. Many supporters of Hillary Clinton apparently didn’t get that memo.

Prior to a rally with Bill Clinton in Edison, New Jersey on Friday, a high school choir attempted to lead the few hundred attendees in a rendition of the Star Spangled Banner.

But a video from the crowd shows many people sitting down, talking with their neighbors or staring at their phones — and completely ignoring the song.
