And the hits keep coming. Continuous body blows. And most of America doesn’t give a damn.
Hillary Clinton’s chief of staff at the State Department, Cheryl Mills, may have received classified national security information through one of two or three personal, unsecured email accounts she regularly used to communicate with Clinton aide Huma Abedin.
The evidence is in the latest cache of emails released by Judicial Watch, as well in Clinton-related emails attached as exhibits to the deposition Judicial Watch took with Mills in a lawsuit regarding Clinton’s use of a private email server as secretary of state.
Approximately 10 percent of Abedin’s emails released through Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act requests were addressed to one of Mills’ various personal email addresses.
Several were found to contain such highly sensitive material that the State Department redacted 100 percent of the content pages, marking many pages with a bold stamp reading “PAGE DENIED.”
WND reported Aug. 26 that of the more than 160 emails in the latest Judicial Watch release, some 110 emails – two-thirds of the total – were forwarded by Abedin to two personal addresses she controlled.
The Washington Times reported in August 2015 that the State Department had admitted to a federal judge that Abedin and Mills used personal email accounts to conduct government business in addition to Clinton’s private clintonemail.com to transact State Department business.
Cheryl Mills appears to have used cheryl.mills@[redacted] as her primary private email address.
One heavily redacted email, dated May 15, 2009, was sent by Doug Band, head of the Clinton Foundation-linked Teneo consulting firm, to Mills at a personal address and to Huma Abedin at her State Department address.
Band was forwarding to Mills and Abedin an email request from an associate who was seeking a State Department position in Charleston, South Carolina. Attached was a letter that the office-seeker had first sent to Bill Clinton containing the office-seeker’s résumé.
The email leaves little doubt Band enjoyed an easy email familiarity with Abedin and Mills, making a State Department job request on behalf of a Clinton Foundation and/or Teneo-related person.
The email from Band was completely redacted, except for a salutation and first sentence. The letter the office-seeker had sent to President Clinton, as well as the office-seeker’s résumé, was redacted except for a phrase that reads, “Well organized, driven professional.”
In various cases, one or more of Mills’ private emails can be found in email chains involving Abedin that Abedin subsequently emailed to herself.
A second email dated May 15, 2009, was sent by Abedin from her State Department email to her personal email, presumably email@example.com. Abedin apparently was archiving in her personal email account an email Hillary Clinton sent her from Clinton’s private email server at HDR22@clintonemail.com. Abedin was asked to print out attachments to an email Mills sent via a private address the previous day to Clinton involving “timetables and deliverables” for her review via Alec Ross, a technology policy expert who then held the title of senior adviser for innovation to Secretary Clinton.
The two pages of timetables and deliverables attached to the email were 100 percent redacted, with “PAGE DENIED” stamped across the first redacted page.
DNC scheduling request
In an email dated June 15, 2009, Abedin uses Huma@clintonemail.com, her email address on Secretary Clinton’s private email server, to forward an email to Mills at Mill’s private email.
The forwarded email involved a request Secretary Clinton had originally addressed to Lona J. Valmoro, then Clinton’s State Department special assistant for scheduling. Valmoro was asked to schedule a briefing on Haiti with Debbie Wasserman Schultz, head of the Democratic National Committee, and CODEL, a State Department abbreviation for “Congressional Delegation.”
June 21, 2009 was the day scheduled for a run-off election in Haiti in which one-third of the seats in the Haiti Senate were in play.
The election – delayed until June 21 by a car accident that killed a prominent politician representing the party of President René Préval – was marred by a boycott protesting chronic poverty and unresponsive government leaders.
