Judicial Watch: FBI Admits Hillary Clinton Emails Found in Obama White House

APRIL 23, 2019

Also Confirms Over 49,000 Clinton Server Emails Found on Weiner Laptop

(Washington, DC) Judicial Watch announced today that a senior FBI official admitted, in writing and under oath, that the agency found Clinton email records in the Obama White House, specifically, the Executive Office of the President. The FBI also admitted nearly 49,000 Clinton server emails were reviewed as result of a search warrant for her material on the laptop of Anthony Weiner.

E.W. (Bill) Priestap, assistant director of the FBI Counterintelligence Division, made the disclosure to Judicial Watch as part ofcourt-ordered discovery into the Clinton email issue.

U.S District Court Judge Royce Lamberth ordered Obama administration senior State Department officials, lawyers, and Clinton aides, as well as Priestap, to be deposed or answer writer questions under oath. The court ruled that the Clinton email system was “one of the gravest modern offenses to government transparency.”

Priestap was asked by Judicial Watch to identify representatives of Hillary Clinton, her former staff, and government agencies from which “email repositories were obtained.” Priestap responded with the following non-exhaustive list:

  • Bryan Pagliano
  • Cheryl Mills
  • Executive Office of the President [Emphasis added]
  • Heather Samuelson
  • Jacob Sullivan
  • Justin Cooper
  • United States Department of State
  • United States Secret Service
  • Williams & Connolly LLP

Priestap also testifies that 48,982 emails were reviewed as a result of a warrant for Clinton email account information from the laptop of Anthony Weiner, who had been married to top Clinton aide Huma Abedin.

A complete copy of Priestap’s interrogatory responsesis available here. Priestap, is serving as assistant director of the FBI’s counterintelligence division and helped oversee both the Clinton email and the 2016 presidential campaign investigations. Priestap testified in a separate lawsuit that Clinton was the subject of a grand jury investigation related to her BlackBerry email accounts.

“This astonishing confirmation, made under oath by the FBI, shows that the Obama FBI had to go to President Obama’s White House office to find emails that Hillary Clinton tried to destroy or hide from the American people.” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “No wonder Hillary Clinton has thus far skated – Barack Obama is implicated in her email scheme.”

Priestap was ordered to answer the written questions by United States District Court Judge Royce C. Lamberth when he ruled in January that Judicial Watch’s discovery could begin in Hillary Clinton’s email scandal. This action came in Judicial Watch’s July 2014 FOIA lawsuit for:

Copies of any updates and/or talking points given to Ambassador Rice by the White House or any federal agency concerning, regarding, or related to the September 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

Any and all records or communications concerning, regarding, or relating to talking points or updates on the Benghazi attack given to Ambassador Rice by the White House or any federal agency.

Judicial Watch’s discovery seeks answers to:

  • Whether Clinton intentionally attempted to evade the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) by using a non-government email system;
  • whether the State Department’s efforts to settle this case beginning in late 2014 amounted to bad faith; and
  • whether the State Department adequately searched for records responsive to Judicial Watch’s FOIA request.

Wow! This brought to you by the "everyone's tired of/drop the russian collusion" crowd.

This makes no sense to me...if obama was part of some scheme to hide hillary's emails, then *why were they found* on wh servers? Wouldn't they have wiped them from there as well? And so what if they went through 49,000 emails on weiner's machine...they already looked at them and said nothing new here...and did it with such timing as to give trump a huge electoral filip which led to his victory.

Moreover, if you are so concerned about this national security threat, why aren't you as concerned about the president and his children using unsecured phones, private servers, and setting up back-channel communications with the russians, as well as meetings with tyrants around the world without notes or even US translators present?

And why aren't you upset that the president was regularly shredding papers that they then had to pay people to glue back together in order to comply with federal information laws?

And as far as transparency, why aren't you concerned about bannon et al using encryption and wiping documents from their servers that hampered the mueller investigation?

[S]ome of the individuals we interviewed or whose conduct we investigated -- including some associated with the Trump Campaign -- deleted relevant communications or communicated during the relevant period using applications that feature encryption or that do not provide for long-term retention of data or communications records," the [Mueller] report says.

Apparently, what's good for the goose is only good for the gander if the gander is a democrat.

What's in the emails? Sounds like they found personal nothing burgers just as Hillary claimed, otherwise the OP would be plastered with horrible horrible stuff from mean ol' Hillary, probably just baby shower and related boring emails, but hey, the RW loons have to hang their hat on something, anything to distract from their precious prez deplorable.

Exactly vgkg...for all the tens of thousands of emails, there has been nothing nefarious revealed in any of them...no master plots about child pron rings out of pizza parlor basements, no hundreds of contacts with the russians or anything about uranium sales, no plots to create isis, no pay to play with clinton foundation, heck nothing even about hillary's brain tumor or alien baby.

I don't know. Some of you are far better conspiracy theorist than I am. Would it be obstruction of justice to take a hammer to your Blackberries and lap tops that were under subpoena? To destroy 33000 emails that were under subpoena? To bleach bit hard drives?

I mean Trump is supposed to be guilty of obstruction of no crime, and he didn't, who turned over every document requested, who never claimed executive privilege even when he could.

Sorry but the repubs tried and failed to "lock her up" via several investigations and hearings. So are they just incompetant, idiots, or just wrong. Probably all of the above since they were only trying to drive down her poll numbers. Congrats on that.

Really? Where are his income taxes which he is now violating the law by not releasing them to the house?

Why did he never agree to be interviewed by mueller?

Why is barr still refusing to release mueller's unredacted report and back up materials to congress?

Why is he blocking people from responding to legal subpoenas and instead fighting it in court?

What about all the encrypted and erased documents of bannon et al which mueller cited as undermining his investigation?

I could go on...

"Sorry but the repubs tried and failed to "lock her up" via several investigations and hearings."

Don't be sorry. They tried to hold her accountable. But between AG Lynch and Bill Clinton's private meeting on the the AG's airplane, and the James Comey announcing "no reasonable prosecutor" would bring charges against Hillary for her mishandling of government documents, those efforts were, at the time, unsuccessful. But the flow of information continues to come out, and the more we learn, the more dots can be connected.

Thanks to a court order, information previously withheld has been turned over to Judicial Watch.

Judicial Watch announced today that a senior FBI official admitted, in writing and under oath, that the agency found Clinton email records in the Obama White House, specifically, the Executive Office of the President. The FBI also admitted nearly 49,000 Clinton server emails were reviewed as result of a search warrant for her material on the laptop of Anthony Weiner.

"...if obama was part of some scheme to hide hillary's emails, then *why were they found* on wh servers?"

Her emails were found on White House servers because she and Obama communicated with each other using email. How else???

"Wouldn't they have wiped them from there as well?"

"They" meaning who? How would "they" have wiped Obama's emails from Obama's government account?

Do you have some reason to believe Bill Priestap is lying?

setting up back-channel communications with the russians

ROFL

"It should be said clearly that there is nothing remotely
unprecedented or even sinister about a US President having a back
channel to the Russians that circumvents the bureaucracy.

The Kennedy administration used a back channel which ran through
Alexander Feklisov, the KGB Resident at the Soviet embassy in
Washington, to communicate directly with the Kremlin during the Cuban
Missile Crisis. It is now generally acknowledged that the eventual
agreement that ended the Cuban Missile Crisis – and with it the threat
of nuclear war – was largely negotiated via Feklisov and the back
channel
."

OOoooo... spooky... not. SMH

meetings with tyrants around the world without notes or even US translators present

double plus ROFL

Since when do presidents need DoReMiFaSoLaTiDos or babysitters to meet other countries' leaders? Merkel and Macron speak English just fine.

I would fix the typo for you Catkin but I cant get edit to work. This keyboard is ticky. Sorry it confused you.

When Clinton was using her own server it was not either illegal or even against policy to do so. So....

Why are you still obsessed with this non issue? Why the passion? If you cared that Trump uses unsecured phones not to mention actually telling people who shouldn't be told, actual real highly classified material I would take some of this more seriously. But to try to make something out of Clinton emails were found on white house computers is inane at best. It is an ?And? sort of moment.

Nonsense. It was NEVER legal for Hillary to use her own unsecured private server for government work. All of her DOS work was the property of the US government, and was supposed to be preserved and stored on government property.

When news media and watchdog groups made FOIA requests, DOS "couldn't find" her communications. They weren't where they were supposed to be. Time will tell if she ever is. Anybody else would have been.

Adopted, The emails had to be captured or copied for archiving. Emailing a White House computer would effectively capture the email. Both computers or phones did not have to be government.

Sounds so like Borowitz. If anyone could think they would already know that of course there would be emails since she was Secretary of State and he was President at that time. To believe otherwise is to have very strange thought processes.

Liar Obama said he found out about her home-brew private server "In the news."


Of all the silky lies being told in Washington over the findings of the FBI’s inspector general on the biased culture of those investigating Hillary Clinton’s email server, one lie seems to be ignored:

It’s the silky lie told by then-President Barack Obama.

It may have set the tone for the smarmy intrigue detailed in the FBI inspector general’s damning 500-page report on the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s email scandal.

And Washington is revealed once again as our modern Versailles, a place of courtiers and lickspittles who’d use the Ministry of Justice to serve their ambitions.

Obama told his silky lie when his chosen successor was Hillary Clinton.

Clinton had endangered top secret information by using an unsecured, home-brew email server when she was U.S. secretary of state. Any other American who dared risk top government secrets on a basement server would have faced federal prosecution and prison.

Obama’s lie was told in 2015, when Obama was asked by CBS’ Bill Plante when he learned Mrs. Clinton had used an unsecured email server.

“The same time everybody else learned it, through news reports,” Obama said. He was so silky that you couldn’t even hear his tongue rustling along his teeth.

He waxed on about how his administration was all about “transparency.”

But Obama did not learn about Clinton’s home-brew server like “everybody else.”

According to the inspector general’s report, Obama was in fact one of 13 top government officials communicating with Clinton on her private email server, even as Clinton’s server was targeted by foreign intelligence services.

According to the IG report, before former (and fired) FBI Director James Comey took it upon himself to publicly criticize Clinton (and exonerate her from a criminal charge), a draft of his public address was heavily edited.

It was edited for Hillary Clinton’s benefit, to buttress the case that what she did wasn’t prosecutable.

Clintons server was targeted by foreign intelligence services? Now that would be news. Do tell catkin, details please. Last I heard her server was one of the few not to be hacked.

How about private meetings with the leaders of other unfriendly countries. No problem. Not even when you lie about it vs getting on an airplane in broad sight of everyone at an airport and not saying you didn't do it and even saying what you talked about. Our current president talks on an unsecured phone, yacks away on the phone to who ever at Mar-a-lago with any ole body in earshot about any thing that crosses his mind, oh, no problem there but Hilary sent email. At least we don't have to worry about that, by all accounts Trump doesn't know how.
