WEINER AND HUMA COOPERATING WITH FBI. WILL THEY TURN ON HILLARY?
'Get Huma the hell out of there': Clinton aides' response to Weiner scandal
“Bust in that house and get Huma the hell out of there.”
THAT WAS IN 2011, AFTER WEINER WAS BUSTED THE FIRST TIME IN A 'SEX SCANDAL'.
TODAY, DEMOCRATS CLOSE TO CLINTON JUST WANT TO FORGET WHO HUMA ABEDIN AND ANTHONY WEINER ARE.
WEINER, aka, 'CARLOS DANGER' WHEN HE IS 'SEXTING', HAS BECOME A REAL DANGER TO THE CLINTON CAMPAIGN THIS LAST WEEK BEFORE NEXT TUESDAY'S ELECTION.
AND THE EMAIL 'SCANDAL' HAS NOW SPREAD TO THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT.
Critics say DOJ insider should recuse himself after ‘heads up’ leak
NOVEMBER 3, 2016
BOSTON HERALD RADIO
"The latest WikiLeaks bombshell shows a Justice Department insider, who is involved in the new FBI probe of Hillary Clinton’s emails, giving Clinton campaign manager John Podesta a “heads up” email about the case last year.
Critics say the email shows that Assistant Attorney General Peter Kadzik should recuse himself from the reopened Clinton email probe. It also hands Donald Trump fresh ammo in his claim the election has been “rigged” in favor of Clinton.
“The chumminess is a big problem, and frankly it’s part of the reason for the cynicism that’s grown about the system,” said civil rights attorney Harvey Silverglate. “It proves that the two major parties have been derelict in creating a political system in which voters can rightly have confidence.”
The email, which Kadzik sent via his own Gmail account to Podesta last May, features the subject line “Heads up,” and alerts him: “There is a HJC oversight hearing today where the head of our Civil Division will testify. Likely to get questions on State Department emails.”
Kadzik also kept Podesta posted on other developments.
“Another filing in the FOIA case went in last night or will go in this am that indicates it will be awhile before the State Department posts the emails,”
Kadzik wrote to Podesta, who forwarded that to other campaign staff, adding, “Additional chances for mischief.”
The Clinton campaign and DOJ did not comment on the Kadzik email.
Prior WikiLeaks email releases show Kadzik’s son emailing Podesta about a Clinton campaign job two weeks before the “Heads up” email, and Podesta hosting Kadzik for dinner at his home while the probe was unfolding.
Trump, in Florida yesterday, said, “These are the people that want to run our country, folks.” He told the crowd, "The spread of political agendas into the Justice Department — there’s never been a thing like this that has happened in our country’s history.”
WRONG, WRONG, WRONG, TRUMP.
YOU MUST NOT READ MUCH.
REMEMBER THE "PENTAGON PAPERS"?
REMEMBER THE UNCOUNTED MILLIONS OF BUSH JUNIOR'S, "DISAPPEARED" EMAILS?
REMEMBER OBAMA OVERTURNING THE BUSH EXEC ORDERS WHICH PROTECTED THE PREZ FROM BEING CHARGED WITH 'WAR CRIMES' OR FROM DECLASSIFYING PRESIDENTIAL CORRESPONDENCES, BOTH SIGNED WHILE BUSH RULED THOSE EIGHT YEARS?
[THESE WERE EXEC ORDERS # 13292 AND # 13233 MAINLY.]

"As the Washington Examiner reports, though FBI Director James Comey told lawmakers Friday his agency found emails related to Hillary Clinton's private email server, he didn't yet have a warrant to read them.
As of Saturday night, the FBI had not received a search warrant from the Justice Department, an unnamed agency official told Yahoo News, but the agency was in talks to get one.
When Comey wrote the letter, "he had no idea what was in the content of the emails," said one official.
It adds that Comey has also begun participating in briefings with the Republican chairman and Democratic ranking members of congressional committees, according to Bill House, a congressional correspondent for Bloomberg News, citing unnamed sources.
Anthony Weiner is said to be cooperating with the FBI investigation.

Team Hillary’s panic is all too telling
Nov. 2, 2016
"Team Hillary could have shrugged off the news last week — after all, they’ve always said there’s nothing improper to be found anywhere in any of their e-mails, so this latest batch will change nothing.
Instead, the campaign’s trying to play the victim, all but suggesting the FBI probe is rigged — and the president is playing along.
Such hysteria can only make voters suspect that even the Clinton camp believes the FBI might be onto something, after all."
FROM BOSTON HERALD RADIO, OCT. 31, 2016
"Disgraced former U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner reportedly is cooperating with federal investigators in their probe of whether he exchanged sexually explicit messages with an underage girl — raising questions of whether he might try to use the newly emerged Hillary Clinton email angle to his benefit.
Former U.S. Attorney for Massachusetts Donald Stern said Weiner’s cooperation “can mean so many different things, it’s really hard to know” what his motivation was, from simply being confident he’s in the clear to grabbing leverage for a plea deal."
WE MAY BE READING AND HEARING A LOT ABOUT "PLEA DEALS" IN THE MONTHS AHEAD.
ACCORDING TO CNN AND OTHERS:
"The Justice Department has obtained a warrant that will allow it to begin searching the computer that is believed to contain thousands of newly found emails of top Clinton aide Huma Abedin, two law enforcement sources confirmed to CNN.
Senior Justice Department officials were briefed on the situation about a week ago and Comey was given a full briefing Thursday, the officials said, triggering his decision to notify members of Congress Friday that the FBI was reviewing emails potentially related to Clinton's server.
The news regarding the timing of the computer's seizure was first reported Sunday by The Washington Post.
The computer in question is considered to belong to Weiner.
Prior to obtaining the warrant, investigators saw enough of the emails to determine that they appeared pertinent to the previously completed investigation and that they may be emails not previously reviewed.
Agents saw enough of the emails that they believed there could be classified information and that it warranted further inquiry, law enforcement sources told CNN.
HUMA ABEDIN IS COOPERATING WITH THE FBI INVESTIGATION.
Because they didn't have a warrant specific to Abedin's emails, officials weren't able to further examine them. Justice Department and FBI officials view Abedin as cooperative with the investigation."
PERHAPS ABEDIN IS SUDDENLY VERY COOPERATIVE SO SHE CAN AVOID PERJURY CHARGES?
AFTER ALL, SHE SWORE UNDER OATH THAT SHE HAD TURNED OVER ALL PERSONAL EMAILS.
SURELY THE ONES IN HER HUSBAND'S COMPUTER COUNTED IN THAT?
THOUGH ABEDIN IS NOW CLAIMING SHE DOESN'T KNOW HOW WEINER GOT THOSE EMAILS, BOTH OF THEM ARE SCRAMBLING TO STAY OUT OF PRISON, AND DOING SO MAY MEAN THEY HAVE TO TURN ON CLINTON.
WILL THEY TURN EVIDENCE IN A PLEA BARGAIN?
CAN THEY PLEA BARGAIN OUT OF THIS?
"I'LL RIP OUT YOUR **** THROAT!"
Oct. 29, 2016
"Others close to Mrs. Clinton have not been as understanding. On a campaign conference call the day that Mr. Weiner admitted he had continued to engage in online liaisons, longtime Clinton adviser Philippe Reines berated him, yelling that he would “reach through the phone” and “rip out” his throat, adding an expletive.
On Saturday, Ms. Abedin was working from the campaign’s Brooklyn headquarters rather than traveling with Mrs. Clinton on a campaign swing in Florida. Mr. Reines, who is not officially on the campaign’s staff, was, however, accompanying Mrs. Clinton."
THE NEW YORK TIMES EVEN ASKED...
A Scandal Too Far? Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton, and a Test of Loyalty
LOYALTY BE HANGED WHEN ONE FACES THE 'NOOSE'.
BETTER LOYALTY BITES THE DUST THAN ONESELF, YES?
I BELIEVE THE COLLOQUIALISM FOR THIS HERE IN THE SOUTH IS "SAVING YOUR OWN ASS".
On Friday, several of Mrs. Clinton’s friends and allies suggested she distance herself from Ms. Abedin, a painful prospect given that Mrs. Clinton has described Ms. Abedin as a surrogate daughter and has relied on her more than anyone else during her nearly two-year pursuit of the White House.
CLINTON AND ABEDIN, VERY CLOSE SINCE ABEDIN WAS 19 YEARS OLD AND BECAME AN INTERN TO HILLARY....21 YEARS OF CLOSENESS.
ISN'T THAT, UMMMM, SWEET?
The two women’s closeness has both intimidated those in the Clinton circle of status-conscious advisers and caused envy.
Even as Mrs. Clinton learned on Friday that the F.B.I.’s interest in her email server, which she thought had ended in July, had reignited, Ms. Abedin was by her side as she prepared to make a statement to the news media in Des Moines.
It was only two months ago that Ms. Abedin announced that she was separating from her husband, after she learned that The New York Post planned to publish a story reporting that Mr. Weiner had sent a picture of his crotch to a woman online as he lay next to the couple’s 4-year-old son in bed. Mrs. Clinton was vacationing in the Hamptons at the time and stayed away from the story.
Privately, aides to Mrs. Clinton suggested on Friday that Ms. Abedin would remain alongside Mrs. Clinton for the final, breakneck stretch of the campaign. But some senior Democrats are now wondering whether, if Mrs. Clinton is elected, she will be able to bring Ms. Abedin along with her for what was once widely expected to be a senior role in the White House.
Mrs. Clinton’s loyalty to Ms. Abedin (and vice versa) stems from the decades they have spent working closely together, beginning when Ms. Abedin was a 19-year-old intern to the first lady in the 1990s.
THE ABEDIN-CLINTON CLOSENESS WAS QUESTIONED BY CONGRESS BEFORE.
Senator Charles E. Grassley, Republican of Iowa and chairman of the Judiciary Committee, has questioned Ms. Abedin’s arrangement to earn income privately while she worked for Mrs. Clinton at the State Department. In addition to being on Mrs. Clinton’s personal payroll, Ms. Abedin received money from the Clinton Foundation and Teneo, a consulting firm co-founded by Douglas J. Band, a former senior aide to Mr. Clinton. And some of Ms. Abedin’s emails on Mrs. Clinton’s private server led to accusations that foundation donors had received special access to the State Department.
Others close to Mrs. Clinton have not been as understanding. On a campaign conference call the day that Mr. Weiner admitted he had continued to engage in online liaisons, Mr. Reines berated him, yelling that he would “reach through the phone” and “rip out” his throat, adding an expletive."
BUT ABEDIN WAS WARNED BACK IN APRIL, BY THE FBI, THAT HER PRIVATE EMAIL SERVER WAS PERHAPS COMPROMISING NATIONAL SECURITY.
NEW YORK POST, 10/31/2016
"FBI agents in April confronted Huma Abedin with an email she received in 2010 warning her that her Yahoo email account — where she’d “routinely” stored State Department messages, including ones containing classified information — might have been compromised. The revelation is contained in a summary of the FBI’s interview with Abedin, conducted on April 5."
Abedin told agents “she was not sure that her email account had ever been compromised,” according to notes of the interview, conducted as part of the FBI’s investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s unsecured and unauthorized home email server. Abedin served as Clinton’s deputy chief of staff and is currently vice chair of her presidential campaign.
With the Weiner revelation, the limits of the classified spillage are anybody’s guess. If the famously reckless Weiner had access to such information, anybody could have it. What state secrets are out there for anyone to see?
These are serious security breaches, yet neither Clinton nor Abedin has been prosecuted for her gross negligence. Maybe that will change now. Maybe if Weiner cooperates with investigators against his wife (to save his own neck), Abedin in turn might be compelled to cooperate with them against her boss."
ABEDIN BECOMES HILLARY'S BIGGEST LIABILITY...
FROM THE GUARDIAN, U.K., NOV. 1, 2016
"This is far from the first time that the Clinton-Abedin bond has been tested by a scandal engulfing the rambunctious and troubled Weiner. In 2011, when Abedin was five months pregnant and working as deputy chief of staff in Clinton’s state department, her husband was forced to stand down from his congressional seat after he inadvertently tweeted a lewd photograph intended for a woman in Seattle to his 45,000 followers.
Two years later, when he attempted a comeback run for New York mayor, he was struck low again when his digital dealings with a woman calling herself Sydney Leathers were exposed. Then this summer Weiner was revealed to have had an online relationship with an allegedly underage girl, leading to the announcement of Abedin’s legal separation from him in August, and in time to the current FBI investigation into his and Abedin’s emails.
ABEDIN WAS HILLARY'S "GATEKEEPER" ACCORDING TO BILL CLINTON AND OTHERS.
The two women have simply grown inseparable with the passing of the years, to the extent that Abedin has variously been dubbed “mini Hillary”, Clinton’s “second daughter” and her “younger sister”.
From that modest beginning as a 19-year-old intern, Abedin has risen from “body woman” – a glorified maid – through travelling chief of staff during Clinton’s first run at the presidency in 2008, to the state department position and now vice-chair of Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.
The union is so close that Abedin is said to carry Clinton’s cellphone in her bag, prompting Bill Clinton to complain that even he can’t get past the gatekeeper.
Though it remains unclear exactly what, if any, transgressions might be revealed by the latest FBI investigation, her position is complicated by the fact that in June she swore under oath that she had already handed over all devices on which she may have had state department emails – a deposition in which she appears to have forgotten to have mentioned the shared laptop.
OH, YEAH, SHE MUST HAVE WATCHED CLOSELY AS HER "SISTER-MOM" TOLD CONGRESS REPEATEDLY WHEN SHE TESTIFIED BEFORE THEM ALL THOSE TIMES...
"I DON'T RECALL..."
"I DON'T REMEMBER...."
"I CAN'T SAY THAT I ACTUALLY SAID THAT (DID THAT, ETC)..."Could this be one wrench too far for the Clinton-Abedin partnership? “Despite the closeness of the two women,” Baker said, “there’s an agreement among political people that even friendship must give way to necessity – and no one understands that better than Hillary Clinton.”
Trey Gowdy (FOX) Interview 11/1/16: Blasts Hillary Clinton & Loretta Lynch
November 2, 2016
THIS WAS A 15-MINUTE "INTERVIEW" ON GOOD OLD SENSATIONALIST FOX NEWS, AND YET GOWDY MADE SOME VALID POINTS.
WHY ARE THE DEMOCRATS ANGRY WITH FBI DIRECTOR COMEY WHEN IT WAS THOSE WHO ENGAGED IN ALL THIS EMAIL MESS THAT ARE TO BLAME?
GOWDY IS ONE OF CONGRESS' CHIEF "HEADHUNTERS" WHEN IT COMES TO DIGGING AND SCRATCHING FOR ANY SHRED OF WRONGDOING REGARDING OBAMA AND THE REST OF THE DEMOCRATS IN THE "BIG BROTHEL" IN D.C., BUT WE DO NEED TO THINK ABOUT WHAT HE SAID.
Comey’s not the problem, the media is the problem
"A powerful public official errs on the side of transparency and disclosure and how does the media react?
Outraged. Indignant. Defensive.
These are our supposed public watchdogs. The ones whose job is to expose what taxpayer-funded officials and politicians don’t want you to know.
You can’t blame FBI Director James Comey for thinking he might get some credit for bringing to light potentially important evidence in the Clinton email investigation. Instead he got blindsided by Clinton campaign counterattacks and the multitude of media lapdogs all too willing to regurgitate the Democratic spin:
Comey violated the FBI’s longtime policy of "not influencing elections".
Put Comey on trial for treason.
Imagine if the FBI had important new information and decided to reopen an investigation of Trump. Do you think Comey would face such a blizzard of criticism? Of course not. Because the sad truth is much of the media badly wants Trump to lose.So instead of the media chasing the real story — which is what might be evidence that Clinton or her aides covered up or hid more classified emails in Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin’s laptop — they question Comey’s motives."
OUR MAD, MAD,MAD, MAD WORLD JUST GOT WEIRDER, FOLKS.
WHAT WILL THE MASSES DO?
AS I WAS TRYING TO EXPLAIN TO A FRIEND IN THE U.K. WHO IS CONCERNED THAT AMERICA SEEMS TO HAVE A CHOICE BETWEEN TWO PROVEN CRIMINALS, HERE ARE THE STEPS TAKEN BY AMERICAN VOTERS WAITING IN LINE AT THE POLLS:
STEP 1: IGNORE ALL FACTS AND ALL TRUTH.
ASK NO QUESTIONS.
BELIEVE ONLY YOUR PARTY.
STEP 2: IF FACTS AND TRUTH SOMEHOW HIT YOU IN THE FACE WHICH CAST DOUBT ON YOUR CHOSEN CANDIDATE, DENY THEM.
NEVER READ OR LISTEN TO "NEWS" THAT ISN'T APPROVED BY YOUR PARTY.ONLY "THE PARTY" CAN TELL YOU WHAT TO SEE, HEAR, THINK, BELIEVE AND VOTE.
STEP 3: EVEN IF SIRENS GO OFF AND LOUD SPEAKERS ANNOUNCE THAT BOTH CANDIDATES WERE ARRESTED ON FEDERAL CHARGES, ESCAPED FROM THE FBI AND DIED IN A SHOOTOUT IN WHICH EACH CANDIDATE KILLED 100 INNOCENT BYSTANDERS, YOU MARCH YOUR ASS RIGHT ON INTO THAT VOTING BOOTH AND VOTE A STRAIGHT-PARTY TICKET.
CHECK AT LEAST 20 TIMES TO MAKE SURE YOUR VOTE WAS MARKED CORRECTLY.
SLIP OUT YOUR iPHONE AND PHOTOGRAPH YOURSELF AND YOUR 'BALLOT', AS EVIDENCE, EVEN IF IT'S AGAINST THE LAW IN YOUR STATE.
PARTY LOYALTY COMES BEFORE EVERYTHING, DAMN IT!
STEP 4: GET YOUR "I VOTED" STICKER, SLAP IT ON YOUR FOREHEAD.
TELL YOURSELF IT DOESN'T REMIND YOU OF THOSE "CHRISTIAN FAIRY TALES" ABOUT THE "MARK OF THE BEAST".
TELL YOURSELF THERE IS NO HELL.
STEP 5: WAIT FOR IT.........
