We predicted back in September the Russians likely had the full set of the now-infamous Clinton emails. Turns out we were right.
According to reliable intelligence sources, the Russian Government is toying with the idea of releasing the text of numerous email messages they were able to intercept during Hillary’s tenure as Secretary of State. Such a release would forever prove that Hillary broke the law by mishandling government secrets in such a way that made them accessible to foreign adversaries.
If Hillary is found to have allowed sensitive information to be “lost, stolen, or abstracted,” through “gross negligence,” she could be found guilty of violating the Espionage Act. Of course this is the last thing the Dems want after Clinton cinched the nomination earlier this month.
As I wrote on June 9th, the State Department has announced that it will be delaying future email releases until after the election. Meanwhile, President Obama is trying his damndest to suppress the severity of the issue in order to see Hillary follow him into the White House.
All of this will change if the Russians prove they have those emails. Putin himself will decide whether or not to reveal the intercepts. Rumor has it that he plans to do it through a third party like WikiLeaks.
“We have upcoming leaks in relation to Hillary Clinton, which is great, WikiLeaks has very big year ahead,” said WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. “We have emails related to Hillary Clinton which are pending publication, that is correct.” The site has already released over 30,000 of Hillary’s private emails.
Putin’s possession of the emails is designed to show that, in addition to violating the law, Hillary’s communications contained highly classified and even TOP SECRET materials. Amidst mounting frustration with the glacial pace of the DOJ probe and its blatant avoidance of the national security aspects of intel handling, Russia’s threat to release the emails comes almost as a relief (at least to us).
Other sources report that Russia obtained Clinton’s emails via the notorious Romanian hacker “Guccifer,” who was recently extradited to the US to shed light on the email investigation. Guccifer claims that hacking Hillary’s account was “easy” and has already been convicted for hacking into Clinton adviser Sidney Blumenthal’s account.
According to GIS/Defense & Foreign Affairs analysts, Clinton’s private server would certainly have been a primary target for hackers of all stripes, particularly those of China, North Korea, and Russia.
Editor’s note: We speculated over a year ago that Hillary’s unsecure email was a devastating leak. You might want to check that article out again.
