Hillary Clinton’s relentless series of credibility-draining scandals started about one year ago when it was revealed that the former SecState had used a personal, unencrypted email account with the firstname.lastname@example.org moniker. Her contention ever since then has been that she did nothing wrong and that nobody had intercepted her emails, many of which were confidential, but her use of said email a violation of government policy, and she put the lives and careers of unknown staffers at risk, and had numerous other deleterious secondary effects.
While it is unlikely that Hillary will face any consequences, thanks to the latest batch of emails released by the State Department, we now know that among the many third party organization who know about Hillary’s “secret” email address was none other than career website LinkedIn as long as February 1, 2012.
As Manal Mehta points out, if LinkedIn knew about Hilary’s personal email and server as early as 2012, then it is virtually assured that so did the Russians, the Chinese, and ISIS and everybody else with a hired hacker.
Related to this, earlier today Breitbart revealed that it has obtained confirmation on State Department letterhead that Hillary Clinton did not sign a mandatory OF-109 “Separation Statement” when she left the State Department.
As Breitbart explains, that statement would have required her to affirm that she had returned all classified materials in her possession. Clinton’s top aide Cheryl Mills also avoided signing a separation statement.
The OF-109 document would have required Clinton to affirm the following:
I have surrendered to responsible officials all classified or administratively controlled documents and material with which I was charged or which I had in my possession. I am not retaining in my possession, custody, or control, documents or material containing classified or administratively controlled information furnished to me during the course of such employment or developed as a consequence thereof…
Clinton never signed off on the above even though the State Department Foreign Affairs Manual requires ALL employees to do so. The office of the Speaker of the House and others have been desperately trying to figure out if Clinton signed an OF-109. Now we know.
It is not surprising that even the largely underinformed American people no longer has any trust left in Hillary.
