Convicted document thief Sandy Berger secretly worked for Hillary Clinton campaign

Former National Security Adviser Sandy Berger, who was sentenced in 2005 — as the result of a plea bargain — to two-years probation and fined $50,000 for stealing highly classified documents from the National Archives and intentionally destroying some of them, had also been functioning as a Hillary Clinton campaign adviser before his death last December.

One of the Berger emails to Hillary Clinton regarding Israel and Prime Minister Netanyahu.

According to a recently released Hillary Clinton email, Berger who served as national security adviser to President Bill Clinton,  had been advising Hillary Clinton since her days as Secretary of State for President Barack Obama. His email correspondence with Clinton was stored on her private server and it’s yet to be reported whether or not he — a convicted thief of classified documents — had access to emails containing classified intelligence.

The release of the Clinton/Berger email was part of a batch of email messages released by the State Department. In one of those emails, Berger advised Clinton to make Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s political life “uneasy.”

In another email to Hillary Clinton he counseled her on how to deal with Netanyahu if he continued to balk at negotiating with the Palestinians, who were still firing thousands of rockets into Israel as well as attacking Jewish border police and military members. .

Here is the full text of the email:

“From: Berger, Samuel R.

“To: H

“Subject: Bibi/Abu Mazen

“Seems the best for a bad situation.

“Moves the public discussion from settlement freeze to final status. Keeps some pressure on the parties. And seems like you will play a more public role, which is good. (You have more credibility on both sides than anyone).

“Going forward, if Bibi continues to be the obstacle, you will need to find the ground from which you can make his politics uneasy. I think you can do that even with current concerns in Israel about US posture. But it will be easier as we rebuild trust so that our future admonitions are accepted. (An HRC trip there to reframe perceptions?).

“Finally, need to be mindful of Abu Mazen’s politics. Taking a lot of criticism for meeting with Bibi without settlement freeze.

“Sandy “This is written from my Blackberry.”

In yet another email just released, Berger again advises Hillary Clinton to put the screws to Netanyahu:

“The objective is to try shift the fulcrum of our current relations with Bibi from settlements — where he thinks he has the upper hand — to ground where there is greater understanding in israel of the American position and where we can make him uneasy about incurring our displeasure…”

In the wake of the Berger/Clinton correspondence, President told the United Nations General Assembly that it was time to establish a Palestinian State alongside Israel: “The time has come — the time has come to re-launch negotiations without preconditions that address the permanent status issues: security for Israelis and Palestinians, borders, refugees, and Jerusalem. And the goal is clear: Two states living side by side in peace and security — a Jewish state of Israel, with true security for all Israelis; and a viable, independent Palestinian state with contiguous territory that ends the occupation that began in 1967, and realizes the potential of the Palestinian people. (Applause.)”

Despite Hillary’s cozy relationship with Israel’s enemies, a Jewish Journal survey in the summer of 2015 under the direction of Steven M. Cohen found that by more than a 2-to-1 majority Jews expressed a preference for the Democratic side in the presidential race. The pattern was most pronounced among younger, better-educated and affluent Jews, and among the non-Orthodox.

The Return of Sandy Berger

Sandy Berger was more of a henchman than a government worker, according to a number of organized crime experts.
Sandy Berger was more of a henchman than a government worker, according to a number of organized crime experts.

According to the 2003 charges against Berger, he “knowingly removed classified documents from the National Archives… and he stored and retained such documents at places such as his private Washington, D.C. office.

The original reports said that Berger — during the infamous 9-11 Commission hearings — went to the National Archives supposedly to read some material from his time in the Clinton White House. News reporters stated that Berger allegedly shoved documents into his pockets, inside his pants, and even inside of his socks and walked out of the Archives building.

Berger and his supporters — including Mr. and Mrs. Clinton — conceded that he indeed took five copies of an after-action report detailing the 2000 millennium terror plot from the Archives. That was the case in which a Border Patrol agent on the U.S.- Canadian border caught a suspected jihadist sneaking explosives into the United States.

It was part of the jihadist’s plot to detonate explosive at the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). While the border agent used her own initiative to detect the explosives and capture the would-be-bomber, Bill Clinton and his staff claimed it was they who alerted Border Patrol agents to be on the lookout for a bomber coming from Canada. 

Several law-enforcement officers believe the documents stolen told the true story about the LAX plot, but the Clintons sent their henchman Sandy Berger to get rid of the evidence.

“The Clintons have a history of playing by their own rules which means committing acts that would get anyone else — including Berger — convicted of malfeasance,” said former police detective sergeant Walter Fendner. “Berger fell on his sword for the Clintons and he was rewarded with probation and a slap on the wrist,” Fendner added.

As luck would have it, before the FBI or Justice Department prosecutors could talk to him, Sandy Berger died on Dec. 1, 2015. The cause of death was listed as cancer. He was 70-years-old, said a statement by his consulting firm, the Albright Stonebridge Group.

    I remember the actions of Sandy “hide it in your pants and socks” Berger very well. This guy was so smart he did not know he was on video at the National Archives ! He was caught in the act, on film, no way to lie his way out of this one even with Presidential help. Regardless, he got off light compared to anyone else who pulled a stunt like this. He was part of the Clinton’s inner circle, he knew much, kept his mouth shut and did as he was told. Even after all of this, he still did well job wise, he had good connections through the Clintons , his illegal action never damaged his career. This creep was a real piece of work ! Typical in the higher up realms of the Federal government.

      I couldn’t have said it better, Rocky.

    This does NOT surprise me and it is NOT the first time the Clinton’s have covered up certain enforcement activity which proves there are problems at the Border and smuggling still continues
    under the permission and knowledge of President Clinton and now a connection to Former First lady, Department of State Department Hillary Clinton.
    I am surprised the U.S. Marshals haven;t made arrests on Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton for violations of the Secrecy Act.
    Remember Benghazi!!!

      The Clinton family is an international crime syndicate complete with button men (and women). They are proof positive that the “sinisterists” have taken control of our beloved nation and turned it into a cesspool of selfishness, immorality and greed.

    Sandy Berger perfectly fits the profile of the “body-bag” list dead guys associated with Bonnie and Clyde Clinton. His medical records need to be looked at as per timeline of illness… and all and any correspondence he made leading up to his death…like…did he talk to Hillary during her candidacy ??

    And you and the liberal pundits including Shepherd Smith have jumped to the conclusion that Trump is taking away Brennan’s security clearance because they think he said something against Trump…He did and it was full of vile and lies…but if you want to know the truth about Brennan and his corruption such as being the one who got the Russian Dossier composed and pushed it to every congressman and newspaper who would give him the time of day…finally getting RINO John McCain to push it also…..Read Judge Jeanine’s new book “Liars, Leakers, and Liberals” and she has a whole section of the things this evil former CIA director did to try to keep Trump from being elected and what all he did to ruin his duly elected Presidency……So angry about the uproar over taking his security clearance away…It should happen and so should Clapper, Strzok, McCabe, Orh, Susan Rice, Obama, and the Clinton’s…..and so many more who are guilty of Seditious Conspiracy and organizing a coup against Trump.
