    Just posted. John Podesta is the chairman of Hillary Clinton's campaign and has a history with the Clintons.

    Incidentally, today is also the day that the U.S. Government formally accused Russia of hacking.

    Stumbled on a random email. Nothing serious but I did chuckle. Turns out Hillary doesn't write any of her tweets, even the ones that are signed with -H.

    Goldman Sachs paid Hillary $675,000 for three speeches. Haha. Hillary is not saying anything important enough to be honestly given $225,000 per 25 minute speech, this is political bribery should Hillary become POTUS. Goldman Sachs (and other banksters) buying influence; buying their president. **** Crooked Hillary.


    Podesta emails show excerpts of Clinton speeches to Goldman

    http://www.cbsnews.com/news/podesta-emails-show-excerpts-of-clinton-speeches-to-goldman/

    Potentially problematic excerpts from Hillary Clinton’s paid Wall Street speeches were flagged for her campaign in an email that was sent to chairman John Podesta and other senior staff this past January.

    The email was released Friday by Wikileaks, part of a batch of what it says were 2,060 emails hacked from an account belonging to Podesta. The Clinton campaign has not confirmed the authenticity of the emails.

    [Note: The released Podesta emails, according to WikiLeaks’ tweet, is only 1% of those yet to be published prior to the election]

    A candidate not as stupid as Trump would have asked Hillary to justify that paycheck.

    Obama weighs in on Hillary Clinton's private emails

    http://www.cbsnews.com/news/obama-weighs-in-hillary-clinton-private-emails/

    March 7, 2015

    President Obama only learned of Hillary Clinton's private email address use for official State Department business after a New York Times report, he told CBS News in an interview.

    CBS News senior White House correspondent Bill Plante asked Mr. Obama when he learned about her private email system after his Saturday appearance in Selma, Alabama.

    "The same time everybody else learned it through news reports," the president told Plante.

    Mr. Obama's comments follow a long week of media scrutiny surrounding Hillary Clinton's private email address and the "home-brewed" server that hosted it.​

    Well that explains why the whole "No reasonable prosecutor." What prosecutor is going to pull in the sitting POTUS to acknowledge his and her own wrong doing. Who am I kidding he would have plead the 5th.

    Or, it's likely possible he honestly didn't know. Perhaps one of his interns okayed that e-mail address and from that point on the e-mail only came in as from "Hillary" or "HRC" or Sec. Clinton".

    I know for my work the only time I see the full address is the first time I get an e-mail from a new address. After that it's always shortened.

    Times are much, much different then to now. Didn't know that there was e-mail back then that auto shortens the full e-mail addresses.

    I'm not saying this is what happened, but I am just giving a plausible reason.

    or he was lying.


    I just have a tendency to think that the POTUS is so effing busy that he (they) are not going to read the full e-mail address to every single e-mail they receive from someone they know.

    HOLY ****! THIS IS BIG!

    John Podesta was offered $8.3 million by a Nigerian Prince as a cash transfer. Corruption?

    Clean it up, bleach it, roll the bodies into the water, Clinton is going to be POTUS no matter what.

    Another one of Hillary's IT specialist pleaded out this week, crooked.

    I know we want to drag the president into this little mess, but I sincerely believe he not only didn't realize it until it was too late, but really didn't want to deal with it.

    He has no reason to expect emails to not be secure or something. When you're in that chair, stuff like IT is done for you so you just write emails and not worry about the security stuff.

    Hillary is a goon.

    That means the POTUS was likely communicating over unsecured channels. In fact, anyone who had hacked Hillarys email could have sent him false information that he could have acted on.

    sure, but what I'm saying is that he would never be expected to deal with that kind of stuff. His expectation is that when he logs on a computer and uses it, everything is secured.

    Like, he doesn't manage his schedule, he doesn't manage White Hose security, he doesn't manage most things at all - that's not his job. Now I'm not saying it's not a problem, but I don't really say that it's up to the president to do IT support.

    The difference between that and Clinton is that she intentionally used a private email server.

    The same thing you said about the prez applies to the secy of state in my book. And all the SoS before and after. Why are they supposed to have to care about any of that stuff, it's up to their aides to maintain the housekeeping of emails so to speak. All those thousands of reams of mostly mundane junk traded by people impressed w/ their own importance... I'm speaking of the classified docs issues, not the server. That imo was reckless and self-serving. I don't think she's a goon, though. Arrogant by now, most likely, from time to time. But not a goon. The people on the right who have been trying to nail her for breathing while competent and smarter than they are for the last 30 years, some of them surely act like goons.
