Saturday, March 12, 2016 Email Troubles Continue

According to Fox News, IT nerd Brian Pagliano, recently given immunity from prosecution for his role in setting up the private unsecured server that Hillary and buds used to communicate State Dept. classified material, and yoga routines, is singing like a bird: Clinton IT specialist revealing server details to FBI, 'devastating witness'
"Bryan Pagliano is a devastating witness and, as the webmaster, knows exactly who had access to [Clinton's] computer and devices at specific times. His importance to this case cannot be over-emphasized," the intelligence source said.

The source, who is not authorized to speak on the record due to the sensitivity of the ongoing investigation, said Pagliano has provided information allowing investigators to knit together the emails with other evidence, including images of Clinton on the road as secretary of state.

The cross-referencing of evidence could help investigators pinpoint potential gaps in the email record. "Don't forget all those photos with her using various devices and it is easy to track the whereabouts of her phone," the source said. "It is still boils down to a paper case. Did you email at this time from your home or elsewhere using this device? And here is a picture of you and your aides holding the devices."
. . .
The intelligence source said the FBI is "extremely focused" on the 22 “top secret” emails deemed too damaging to national security to publicly release under any circumstances, with agents reviewing those sent by Clinton as well her subordinates including former chief of staff Cheryl Mills.

"Mrs. Clinton sending them in this instance would show her intent much more than would receiving [them],” the source said. "Hillary Clinton was at a minimum grossly negligent in her handling of NDI [National Defense Information] materials merely by her insisting that she utilize a private server versus a [U.S. government] server. Remember, NDI does not have to be classified." According to the Congressional Research Service, NDI is broadly defined to include “information that they have reason to know could be used to harm the national security.”

It was emphasized to Fox News that Clinton’s deliberate “creation” and “control” of the private server used for her official government business is the subject of intense scrutiny. Pagliano knows key details as to how the private server was installed and maintained in her home.
As far as I know, Pagliano never had any kind of clearance, and just his ability to monitor and extract information from the servers would be illegal. Some interesting comments on this at Althouse:
Oh, no. It's much worse than that. Pagliano, under orders from Hillary & in open or grudging connivance with the State Dept, introduced what's called a mail relay host, which bridged the air gap between State's secure & Hillary's unsecure network. Now, in computer/network security terms, just like housing construction, a doorway out is a doorway in. In other words, Hillary probably compromised the entire State Dept secure network.

Just wait. This will come out. It can be no other way.
Cruz: I would 'absolutely' go after Clinton on emails if elected. I'll vote for that. Sen. Grassley is getting impatient with the FBI:
"The FBI is behaving like it’s above the law," Grassley said in a statement provided to POLITICO on Monday evening. "Simply refusing to cooperate with a court-ordered request is not an appropriate course of action. This entire case, from Secretary Clinton’s ill-advised decision to use a non-government email server, to the FBI’s investigation about classified information, needs some transparency in order to assure the American people that getting to the bottom of this controversy is a priority.”
And buried down below:
In yet another Clinton-related FOIA case Friday, Judge Amy Berman Jackson granted a partial stay of State’s obligations to search for records contained in Clinton’s email account relating to two Clinton Foundation donors: Lebanese-Nigerian billionaire businessman Gilbert Chagoury and Chicago securities trader Raj Fernando. Jackson said, however, that State should keep processing any such records it has already identified.

Other judges have declined to impose such stays, which State sought as it tries to have some aspects of the more than 30 FOIA cases connected to Clinton and her aides’ emails coordinated by a single judge.
Charles Lane at the Washinton Post writes The Trump campaign speech that could beat Clinton this fall
“You know our country doesn’t win anymore. When was the last time — like, 1991, when we beat the Soviets, and that guy Saddam in Kuwait? We were on top of the world and everybody loved us and wanted to copy our system and it was really special. That was what, 25 years ago? These college kids who voted for Bernie weren’t even born yet.

“Ever since, it’s been lose, lose, lose. And you know when it started, people? I’ll tell you: It started in 1994, with that stupid NAFTA. That was her husband Bill’s idea. He sounded all high and mighty about markets and democracy, but he was really listening to lobbyists and taking their money, and he let Mexico rip us off.

“And then he had another genius idea: Renew most-favored-nation trade status for China — can you believe it! He promised not to do it in the 1992 campaign, but the lobbyists and Henry Kissinger got to him. He made it permanent his last year in office so China could join the World Trade Organization. He said that would help sell U.S.-made cars in China! And now he says she’d be a great president. . .
Did guns kill Hillary's chances in Michigan? I expect a tack to the right on this as soon as the super delegates deliver the nomination.
What Clinton might not have considered is that Michigan has a long hunting and shooting tradition and has some of the highest rates of hunting license sales and firearm background checks in the country. In 2015, the FBI processed over 500,000 background checks for gun buyers in Michigan, about the same number as in 2014.

And in 2013, the last year of available records according the the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the state sold nearly 800,000 hunting licenses. That means about 10 percent of the population of Michigan over the age of 15 are hunters. It's not the highest rate in the country, but its well above Ohio, Florida, or even Iowa.

Researchers who look into the issue of concealed carry rights find that as of 2014, nearly half a million Michiganders hold permits to wear a gun. Rough back-of-the-napkin math shows that's about 5 percent of the adult population of the state over the age of 21, the minimum age for permits.
Hillary Clinton regrets faint praise of Nancy Reagan at her funeral. The Reagans got a bum rap from liberals over the AIDS epidemic, which hit the "elbow" in the exponential growth curve during the Reagan years.

OK, he/shes crazy, but not that crazy: Caitlyn Jenner: The “Country Is Over” If Hillary Clinton Is Elected President
“Just because I’m a woman now doesn’t make me all of a sudden liberal.” The debate escalates when the women bring up Clinton, to which Jenner says, “I would never, ever, ever vote for Hillary… If Hillary becomes president, the country is over.”

Jenner’s friend Candis Cayne attempts to argue that there’s “a lot to love about Hillary,” and that she’s “an amazing woman,” but an annoyed Jenner starts yelling, “What has she done in her life?! What has she done?” The former Olympian adds, “She was a lousy senator. She was horrible. Look at all of the things that are going on in the Middle East, all because of what she did. Look at Benghazi. She lied to us! She’s a f***ing liar!”
