Watchdog Found Clinton Emails Were Sent to ‘Foreign Entity’

state-dept-clinton-emails clinton FBI probeA member of the House Committee on the Judiciary said during a hearing Thursday that a government watchdog found that nearly all of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails were sent to a foreign entity and that the FBI didn’t follow-up on that finding.

The Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) found an “anomaly on Hillary Clinton’s emails going through their private server, and when they had done the forensic analysis, they found that her emails, every single one except four, over 30,000, were going to an address that was not on the distribution list,” Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas said during a hearing with FBI official Peter Strzok.

“It was going to an unauthorized source that was a foreign entity unrelated to Russia,” he added.

Gohmert said the ICIG investigator, Frank Rucker, presented the findings to Strzok, but that the FBI official did not do anything with the information.

Strzok acknowledged meeting with Rucker, but said he did not recall the “specific content.”

“The forensic examination was done by the ICIG and they can document that,” Gohmert said, “but you were given that information and you did nothing with it.”

He also said that someone alerted the Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz to the issue.

“Mr. Horowitz got a call four times from someone wanting to brief him about this, and he never returned the call,” Gohmert said.

The ICIG previously caught problems regarding Clinton’s server that the FBI missed. The bureau didn’t notice that some emails were openly marked classified with a “(C)” when they were sent.

The ICIG spotted the oversight after the FBI missed it, texts between Strzok and his mistress, former FBI lawyer Lisa Page, show.

“Holy cow,” Strzok wrote, “if the FBI missed this, what else was missed? … Remind me to tell you to flag for Andy [redacted] emails we (actually ICIG) found that have portion marks (C) on a couple of paras. DoJ was Very Concerned about this.”

In late 2017, ICIG Chuck McCullough — who was appointed by former President Barack Obama —  took the unusual step of coming forward publicly to say that he perceived pushback after he began raising the alarm about issues with Clinton’s servers to then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.

He said he found it “maddening” that Democrats, including Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, were underselling the amount of classified information on the server.

McCullough said he “expected to be embraced and protected,” but was instead “chided” by someone on Capitol Hill for failing to consider the “political consequences” of his investigative findings, Fox News reported.

The ICIG has not publicly disclosed the findings Gohmert described in the meeting between Rucker and Strzok, but the congressman said the watchdog can document them.

Thursday’s exchange is below:

Gohmert: You said earlier in this hearing you were concerned about a hostile foreign power affecting the election. Do you recall the former Intelligence Community Inspector General Chuck McCullough having an investigation into an anomaly found on Hillary Clinton’s emails?

Let me refresh your memory. The Intelligence Community Inspector General Chuck McCullough sent his investigator Frank Rucker along with an IGIC attorney Janette McMillan to brief you and Dean Chapelle and two other FBI personnel who I won’t name at this time, about an anomaly they had found on Hillary Clinton’s emails that were going to the private unauthorized server that you were supposed to be investigating?

Strzok: I remember meeting Mr. Rucker on either one or two occasions. I do not recall the specific content or discussions.

Gohmert: Mr. Rucker reported to those of you, the four of you there, in the presence of the ICIG attorney, that they had found this anomaly on Hillary Clinton’s emails going through their private server, and when they had done the forensic analysis, they found that her emails, every single one except four, over 30,000, were going to an address that was not on the distribution list. It was a compartmentalized bit of information that was sending it to an unauthorized source. Do you recall that?

Strzok: Sir, I don’t.

Gohmert: He went on the explain it. And you didn’t say anything, you thanked him, you shook his hand. The problem is it was going to an unauthorized source that was a foreign entity unrelated to Russia and from what you’ve said here, you did nothing more than nod and shake the man’s hand when you didn’t seem to be all that concerned about our national integrity of our election when it was involving Hillary Clinton. So the forensic examination was done by the ICIG — and they can document that — but you were given that information and you did nothing with it. And one of the things I found most egregious with Mr. Horowitz’s testimony, and — by the way Mr. Horowitz got a call four times from someone wanting to brief him about this, and he never returned the call.

Put her in jail. I was in the military for 21 years and had a top security clearance. I knew that this was not acceptable and I fail to see why everyone is overlooking this act of treason from Clinton! Please someone, take charge and send her to jail!

What is really needed is TERM LIMITS!!!, Our Constitution addresses this through the States. There is a Term Limits organization in operation now. They need 37 States to agree in order to meet the necessary requirements to address this.

It’s interesting to me that we have all these allegations of treason, collusion, fabrication etc. on the DNC. There are many articles and facts revealed but absolutely nothing is or will be done. They are above the law and maybe will get a slap on the wrist but jail time? Not going to happen.

No wonder the airwaves are aflame with bashing Trump for his comments at the European conference – it’s another WAG THE DOG! (Divert the public’s attention from what’s really important (the deep state revelations) to anything else, and make a big rumpus to keep them distracted from the scandals of the left!) Use any opportunity to bash Trump or his staff or cabinet!

Is there anybody in Congress truly serious about their lawless undertakings?

Very interesting that Horowitz never returned calls on this matter. I’m beginning to wonder if there is one single individual in the federal ranks that we can trust. I do know that the swamp is very, very deep. It’s like the Grand Canyon filled with slime.

Surprise! Surprise! Lock Her Up! I wouldn’t want her to get lonely, so to keep her company, Brennan, Clapper, Soros, Jarrett and others.
Thank God she did not get elected. Thank God for Trump. I just hope they all get their just rewards because the American people do not
deserve these low life criminals.

The building of the Shadow Government of socialist liberalism has been going on for perhaps 50 years, with the biggest push during the Clinton, George W, and Worst of all the Obama administration. Instead of handing down indictments on Russian Spies (senseless) they should have been handing down indictments on the Deep State and Swamp bottom feeders involved in a treasonous conspiracy against the United States and our Constitution, the Clinton Crime Family, Bush Administration, and most of all Obama and his administration.

The deep state continues to run roughshod over the American people and ostensibly getting away with it. Congress is failing in its constitutional powers to fight fire with fire. These sanctimonious bureaucratic villains in our government must be prosecuted to the fullest measure of the law and nothing short of it! Elections have consequences!

I agree, and to think we still don’t know the whole depth and how far reaching the Deep State and Swamp go… It is possible that we are only seeing the tip of the iceberg.

He didn’t do anything about it because as we found out he was born and raised in Iran, like Vallerie Jarrett. He went to school there and then a couple years in Saudi Arabia. He founded a charity and it somehow became linked in with the Clinton charity and he also was tied in with the Haiti disaster, like the Clintons. Horowitz didn’t acknowledge the calls to advise him of the emails going to foriegn source, most likely Iran, because it wouldn’t be anything but suicide for him, like so many others. Everyone is afraid of the Clinton goons.

What do you expect when you have a former CIA chief, Brennan, who voted for the Communist Party candidate, Gus Hall, a Secretary of State who was mentored by a Communist, Saul Alinsky, and a President whose life was surrounded by left-wing organizations influenced by Saul Alinsky and Communists like, Bill Ayers, Frank Marshall Davis, and his close friend, Vane Jones, just to name a few. Why wouldn’t you think that these people were deliberately taking our country in a radical left-wing direction? Thankfully the hand of God intervened and Trump was elected president instead of Clinton. I shutter to think where we would be today had she become president! The fight is still not over!

SO well said Eileen! This is the kind of statement we need answers to, and never seem to get. I believe our biggest enemy is right here on the Left. And it truly is the hand of God who brought Trump here.

I was a Clinton supporter, uh…Bill Clinton, that is. On the other hand I wouldn’t trust Hillary to clean my house let alone run my country! She’s just one of many greedy, power hungry individuals who are helping to bring about changes to this wonderful nation of ours that are not in the best interests of ‘We the People’!

Barb. Your insight is 20/20. There are wonderful patriots like Tom Z. of “We the People” in Ohio as well as millions of others across this great country given to us through the incredible sacrifices of our Founding Fathers. I send letters to politicians and make phone calls. Your efforts and my efforts need to be multiplied a thousand times. I need no recognition but I would give it to all who get into the fight to save our America. God bless America and every person that follows Amac and seek to find ways to help.

With this information, why hasn’t our government arrested all these people for Treason and why hasn’t Hilary Clinton not been arrested? If the FBI has been made aware of all these wrongdoings, why have they not done their job? Everyone at the FBI that have had knowledge of all these wrongdoings should be fired IMMEDIATELY, ARRESTED and held without BAIL? All of these people, have tried to DESTROY OUR NATION and NOTHING IS BEING DONE. EVERYONE ONE IMPLICIT IN THESE WRONGDOINGS SHOULD BE PROSECUTED. IF ANY OF THESE PEOPLE RECEIVED FINANCIAL GAIN TO COVER THIS ACTIVITY SHOULD HAVE THEIR FINANCIAL RESOURCES FROZEN UNTIL THE INVESTGATION AND PROSECUTION IS COMPLETE.

Thus, President Trump’s comment in Helsinki makes sense. Given the blatant incompetence in the FBI (or deliberate inaction), perhaps he’s correct in his distrust of the department.
We need to flush the toilet down to the agent level, and replace the majority of management in the FBI. Now. Immediately.

I have said this for a very long time. I wish where was someone that is squeaky clean and has the guts, fortitude to go after the Clintons and prove that they are criminals as we all know there are. IF such a person were found, they would have to have a very good security 24 hours a day.

So, really. Is anyone surprised? It has been and still is a concerted effort on the part of politicians, law enforcement agencies and people in front of cameras and people behind the scenes attempting, not only to hide their past corruption, but to continue their corruption without consequence.

Why do you think there is so much non-stop, laser targeted mis-information on Trump?

Smoke and mirrors people. Smoke and mirrors. The pea is never where you think it is.
