You have to wonder why Obama met with Bernie, but didn’t meet with Hillary, why he endorsed Hillary by video, a sort of hands-off remote control endorsement.
Turns out that yesterday the WSJ published an article indicating that the so-called 22 top secret emails on Hillary’s home brew server involved drone strikes in Pakistan. I don’t know if this information is true, or considered SAP (special access program) data, but you would think the info would have to be SAP, if the information included a name or names of CIA operatives in Pakistan involved with drone strikes. Such information could lead to those operatives deaths (sorry Madeleine).
The emails in question were sent in the period around Christmas of 2011.
I don’t know if the Raymond Allen affair is an example of another breach, or is in any way connected to HRC use of a home brew server, but Allen was arrested in Lahore, Pakistan, the previous January, after a shoot-out with two armed men who were clearly out to get him. He killed both of them. Allen was later identified as a CIA contractor and acting CIA station chief in Lahore, in charge of drone strikes in the tribal regions.
At the same time, there is a veritable boatload of disinformation on the intertubes about the unlikelihood of Clinton being indicted. You have to think that this is coming from the Clinton campaign. (Has 1984 arrived yet?)
Still I truly wonder what Obama and Lynch will do, if Comey recommends indictments, which you would think he would have to do, if the compromised data was SAP (compromised by virtue of being on HRC’s home brew server). Compromising a SAP is a felony violation of the espionage act, wherein negligence is a tacit admission of guilt.
Much as I like President Obama, who has been a sea of calm for the last 7 and a half tumultuous years, I cannot countenance him green-lighting a coverup of a possible SAP exposure over non-secure communication lines.
If Comey recommends an indictment and it is quashed, there is no way the quashing will stay secret. There will be hell to pay politically for all who would participate in such a coverup.
