Hillary Clinton’s minions are counting on House Majority Leader hopeful Kevin McCarthy’s comments — that the House Select Committee on Benghazi has contributed to the Democratic front-runner’s dropping poll numbers — to help them “beat the rap” in a case that smacks of an organized crime conspiracy. In fact, in a story covered by this writer for another publication last year, a State Department whistleblower claimed that while Hillary was still Secretary of State but was on the way out, her team was burning the midnight oil in the basement of the State Department destroying documents.
At the same time that Hillary Clinton and her husband Bill were hobnobbing with Democrats in Iowa on Sunday, a former Clinton assistant, Ray Maxwell revealed to reporters that State Department cronies beholding to Secretary Clinton were instructed to sift through documents in a “secret” operation conducted in the headquarters’ basement. The goal was to exclude anything that might point to Clinton’s mismanagement of embassy security especially in nations that were involved in conflicts with radical Muslims such as Egypt, Iraq and Libya.
During Clinton’s tenure, Maxwell was a high-ranking deputy in the State Department’s Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs (NEA), which was ordered to collect any and all documents regarding the shocking Benghazi terrorist attack.
According to Maxwell, Hillary Clinton’s top assistant was present during the after-hours document review. But Maxwell wasn’t assigned to help in the hanky panky occurring in the Sunday document caper, he said. Maxwell’s description of what he saw — boxes full of government documents — reminds many observers of Hillary Clinton’s days as a First Lady during the Whitewater investigation. That incident in 1996 created a controversy that was quickly dismissed by the news media that all but covered up the story of how the longtime missing documents were discovered in Hillary Clinton’s White House bedroom.
Did Hillary Clinton aides withhold damaging Benghazi documents? During a Monday morning appearance on Fox News Channel, Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, identified the Hillary Clinton confidants who were allegedly present during the basement hanky panky. He named Cheryl Mills, Clinton’s chief of staff, who was President Bill Clinton’s attorney during his impeachment ordeal. Rep. Chaffetz also named Deputy Chief of Staff Jake Sullivan, who actually worked for both Hillary Clinton’s and Barack Obama’s presidential campaigns.
According to documents obtained by former Justice Department prosecutor Larry Klayman, Secretary Clinton and her closest staff members were the likely source of the security leaks to New York Times reporter David Sanger. Klayman also said the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) documents show that those leaks were coordinated with the Obama White House’s national security team, which included Susan “Benghazi” Rice and Iranian-born Valerie Jarrett.
“What should outrage Americans is the fact that not only is there a concerted effort to minimize the seriousness of Clinton’s email scandal, but this woman is running a campaign to become the Commander in Chief of the U.S. military forces, intelligence agencies and law enforcement departments,” said former Marine intelligence operative and police detective Michael Snopes. “If a CIA or FBI operative ever did half of what Hillary has been accused of, they would be suspended pending an intense investigation and probably fired or worse – they’d be locked up in prison,” Snopes added.
