Obama Cover-up for Hillary Clinton Was Worse Than Collusion

Who in his administration conspired to withhold damaging facts about failed Democrat candidate’s mishandling of classified info?

by Charles Ortel | Updated 04 Feb 2018 at 10:31 AM


Records available through the FBI Vault prove beyond any doubt that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her inner circle of trusted aides, including Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills, were subjects of a formal investigation into the mishandling of classified information, beginning July 10, 2015.

Yes, you read the above correctly: A formal FBI investigation commenced well before any 2016 Democratic presidential debates and primaries.


Yet how many times did Clinton and her political and media allies claim that, whatever may have been happening, the review of her private servers and unsecured devices during her years as America’s chief diplomat was nothing more than a “normal security review,” not an “investigation”? Or, as then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch instructed then-FBI Director James Comey to describe it, just a “matter”?

A 17-part treasure trove of documents concerning Clinton is linked here and includes much that we should all consider, starting with Part One, a 35-page summary of the contents.

For example, in Part Six, starting on Page 11, we learn that a senior State Department informant walked into the Washington, D.C., FBI field office on Jan. 27, 2016, upset that Comey never acknowledged receipt of crucial evidence the confidential witness had earlier provided.

Days later, Andrew McCabe was appointed deputy director of the FBI by then-President Barack Obama and tasked with oversight of the investigation into mishandling classified information by Clinton, Abedin, Mills and other key aides.

Then, we learn on Oct. 30, 2016, through a different FBI Vault disclosure, that the Department of State had found by February 2016 more than 2,000 examples of mishandled classified information during Clinton’s tenure there (see Pages 12 and 13 of the preceding link):

In February 2016, the State Department completed its review and determined that 2,115 of the 20,940 emails contain information that is presently classified.

Out of these 2,115 emails, the State Department determined that 2,028 emails contain information classified at the confidential level, 65 contain information classified at the secret level, and 22 contain information classified at the top-secret level.

Thereafter, at an undetermined date prior to October 2016, the FBI received further clarification concerning the scope of the apparent mishandling (see Page 14 of the preceding link):

The FBI sought a determination by the relevant original classification authorities as to whether certain of the 30,490 emails contained classified information at the time they were sent.

In response to the FBI’s requests for classification determinations, the relevant original classification authorities determined that 81 email chains, which the FBI investigation determined were transmitted and stored on the Clinton email server, contained classified information ranging from the confidential to top-secret/Special Account Program levels at the time they were sent between 2009 and 2013.

To recap, the State Department concluded by February 2016 that classified information resided in more than 2,000 Clinton emails that were stored on a private server located in the Chappaqua, New York, mansion she shares with former President Bill Clinton, conveniently and completely outside of mandatory government security control for years.

The FBI subsequently concluded that a significant number of Clinton’s declared emails were classified at the time they had been sent.


Rather than inform American voters before the election, the Obama administration seems to have done its level best to bury these important facts. And they may have been aided in this cover-up by senior executives within the FBI, government employees the public expects to be scrupulously nonpartisan.

When will those within government tell the American people the whole truth about Clinton’s stewardship of classified information while working as secretary of state?

And, even more to the point, can the FBI or Department of Justice management — “swamp central” — be trusted to investigate themselves?

  • While this may seem absolutely astonishing it is certainly readily explainable. Had they actually pursued prosecutions consistent with what the evidence proved they would have also caught up President Obama. He had sent HRC a number (no one knows how many) of emails containing confidential to top secret information UNDER AN ALIAS ACCOUNT that went through her server and were thus unprotected. Prosecutions were never going to happen and that’s why he started going public saying that while she might have been a little careless she really hadn’t done anything wrong. Can you believe that we actually elected a person who would do stuff like this?

    No big surprise to anyone with a functioning brain. We knew Hillary was lying to us every time she opened her mouth. And most importantly, our Nobel Laureate (for doing nothing) president covered for her, protected her…and lied for her! I’m still waiting for some intrepid reporter to put a microphone in front of Obama and ask him why he used a pseudonym while communicating with Hillary on a private server he claimed to know nothing about!

      Obama wasn’t protecting her. He was protecting himself. This entire story is really about a sitting President using willing political appointees at the FBI and DOJ to cover up his own crimes. This didn’t include the women and men agents at the field level – in fact, I’ve heard that the New York office was going to leak the information about Weiner’s laptop having emails in October of 2016, and that is supposedly why Comey made the announcement that the investigation was “re-opened” after sitting on the information for several weeks, hoping to get past Hillary’s expected coronation. Of course, he closed the “investigation” just a few days later saying “Nothing there”.

    Can you believe that regardless of what the evidence shows, nearly half the country won’t believe it or give it a pass?

    Bottom line: The ex-president is involved in a criminal act. It is almost impossible to expect that fact to hit a judges desk. Trust me, I would LOVE to have all those involved brought to justice, but reality dictates it will NEVER happen. It’s disgusting to think that we mere citizens must obey the law while those in power continue to break it.

      These are some of the precise reasons this nation began. Our founding fathers were adamant that justice be blind specifically because those in power in England could avoid justice and basically do whatever they wanted.

      Isn’t this the same President that produced a fake, forged birth certificate and claimed it was his while the rest of America remained silent and our law maker and breakers continued giving him an open leash to destroy everything in America we hold dear and it continues today while most of America seems uninterested about what is actually happening to our country and our Constitution and its laws. This is all very difficult for me to swallow coming from a man that doesn’t have an American Social Security card in his name and if he does then his name isn’t Barack Obama.

      Well, we know his name is Barry, the media and others tried to hide the name change. I know, his “stepfather” was named Obama. Gander your glims on this fact folks. After joining the Islamic Religion, one must conform to it’s principles. Changing one’s name is part of that process.

    She felt untouchable, and therefore complacent! Got away with so many lies over so many years. People need to quit being lazy and do what they can to fix this system.
