GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, voiced his intention on Monday to use his authority as chairman of the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee to investigate the allegations and stories of bias against President Donald Trump now that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation is complete. While the report revealed nothing damaging to the Trump administration, the rabid Democrats in both houses of Congress insist that there was illegal and treasonous activity between President Donald Trump and the Russian government.
“Mueller’s report into the Kremlin’s interference in the 2016 presidential election did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russia,” wrote Attorney General William Barr in a letter to Congress.
Sen. Graham has stated in several interviews that the real suspected collusion during the 2016 presidential election cycle had to do with the Democrats and the Clinton campaign using foreign agents, such as former MI6 spy Christopher Steele and his Russian connections, to sabotage Donald Trump’s campaign. and when he won the election, to thwart his taking the oath of office.
Besides Sen. Graham’s plan, one of the nation’s top public-interest law firms announced Monday that its team of investigators and attorneys uncovered 422 pages of FBI documents revealing actual evidence regarding talks regarding a “cover-up” related to Hillary Clinton’s infamous email system within Platte River Networks, one of the vendors who managed the Clinton email system. Many law enforcement officers who spoke to Conservative Base have acknowledged their belief that Clinton intentionally conducted business using an unauthorized email server to avoid her exposure in a number of criminal acts or episodes of unethical actions by her or her State Department staff or campaign minions.
According to the nonprofit, nonpartisan group, Judicial Watch, the documents in question also revealed that Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) Charles McCullough forwarded “concerns” about classified information in former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails. The new documents uncovered by Judicial Watch also contain Hillary Clinton’s 2009 classified Non-Disclosure Agreement, which she signed upon being appointed as President Barack Obama’s secretary of state, included:
An October 2016 Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:16-cv-02046)) forced the release of the new FBI documents. The Judicial Watch lawsuit, filed after the Justice Department failed to comply with a July 7, 2016, FOIA request, sought:
- All FD-302 forms prepared pursuant to the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private e-mail server during her tenure.
- All records of communications between any agent, employee, or representative of the Federal Bureau of Investigation regarding, concerning, or related to the aforementioned investigation.
“This request includes, but is not limited to, any related communications with any official, employee, or representative of the Department of Justice, the Executive Office of the President, the Democratic National Committee, and/or the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton,” according to a Judicial Watch press statement.
It also demands the release of all records related to the meeting between Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton on June 27, 2016. The media narrative of that meeting on the airport tarmac in Arizona is that they both happened to be at the airport at the same time, but only discussed personal family topics and not the fact that while Lynch and Bill Clinton chatted, Hillary was being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
In March 2015, Platte River Networks specifically discusses security of Hillary Clinton’s privately owned and operated email server:
“[Redacted] is going to send over a list of recommendations for us to apply for additional security against hackers. He did say we should probably remove all Clinton files, folders, info off our servers etc. on an independent drive.”
Meanwhile, handwritten messages from Platte River Networks in February 2016 mention questions concerning the Clinton email system and state of back-ups The documents show Platte River Networks’ use of the now famous BleachBit to “clean up[” the Clinton server. The BleachBit program was downloaded from a vendor called SourceForge at 11:42am on March 31, 2015, according to a computer event log, and over the next half hour, was used to delete the files on Hillary’s server.
The documents also contain emails and handwritten notes written in June and July 2015 from the Office of the Intelligence Community Inspector General discussing his “concerns” over classified information. A redacted sender writes to State Department Official Margaret “Peggy” Grafeld that “inadvertent release of State Department’s equities when this collection is released in its entirety — the potential damage to the foreign relations of the United States could be significant. ICIG McCullough forwards the concern, saying: “Need you plugged in on this.”

Subject: Concerns about the HRC Review …
While working with this inspector, I have personally reviewed hundreds of documents in the HRC collection. I can now say, without reservation, that there are literally hundreds of classified emails in this collection; maybe more. For example, there are comments by Department staff in emails relating to the Wikileaks unauthorized disclosures; many of the emails relating to this actually confirm the information in the disclosures. This material is the subject of FOIA litigation, and the emails will now have to be found, reviewed and upgraded. Under the EO 13526, it would be in in our right to classify the entire HRC collection at the Secret level because of the “mosaic effect.” While there may be IC equities in the collection, I am very concerned about the inadvertent release of State Department’s equities when this collection is released in its entirety — the potential damage to the foreign relations of the United States could be significant.

Need you plugged in on this. Need to coordinate w/ State’s WB person.
It is unclear if the Department of Justice is reviewing the emails before FOIA release. Former-Secretary Clinton’s emails are the subject of numerous FOIA requests and multiple FOIA lawsuits. It may be prudent to integrate the Department of Justice into the FOIA process review to ensure the redactions can withstand potential legal challenges. If not already being done, recommend the State Department FOIA Office incorporate the Department of Justice into the FOIA process to ensure the legal sufficiency review of the FOIA exemptions and redactions. [Emphasis in original]
Other released materials include letters from Clinton’s personal lawyer David Kendall throughout the production. On June 24, 2015, Kendall writes to the State Department Inspector General that the State Department is in possession of “all Secretary Clinton’s work-related … emails:” He continues that, as Hillary’s personal counsel, “We continue to retain a preservation copy of the .pst file containing the electronic copies of those e-mails, on a thumb drive that is stored in a secured safe at the offices of Williams and Connolly …”
“Judicial Watch uncovered new ‘cover-up’ records on the illicit Clinton email system that further demonstrate the sham nature of the FBI/DOJ ‘investigation’ of her,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in his statement. “These shocking new documents show that various Obama agencies were protecting Hillary Clinton from the consequences of her misconduct. It is well past time for the DOJ to stop shielding Hillary Clinton and hold her fully accountable to the rule of law,” demanded Fitton.
According to Mr. Fitton’s statement, “In a different lawsuit Judicial Watch previously released 186 pages of records from the DOJ that include emails documenting an evident cover-up of a chart of potential violations of law by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.”
And, in a separate lawsuit, Judicial Watch uncovered 215 pages of records from the DOJ revealing former FBI General Counsel James Baker discussed the investigation of Clinton-related emails on Anthony Weiner’s laptop with Kendall. Baker then forwarded the conversation to his FBI colleagues.
According to Mr. Fitton, who appears regularly on One America News Network (OANN), Judicial Watch is currently conducting depositions of senior Obama-era State Department officials, lawyers, and Clinton aides.
