Obama dodges questions on Clinton's emails, paid speeches

Source: Congressional News -The Hill

President Obama dodged a question about Hillary Clinton's email controversy and her paid speeches to Wall Street on Thursday.

At the end of a press conference in Ise Shima, Japan, on Thursday, Obama told reporters that "as a special bonus, I’m going to take one more question, go ahead.

A reporter than asked Obama about a State Department inspector general report released Wednesday that said Clinton and her aides didn't comply with agency records-keeping policies. "Just yesterday we saw the State Department’s inspector general put out a report about Secretary Clinton’s emails. It basically undermines some of what she’s said about her email practices," the journalist asked.

“I’m wondering if you think that undermines her trustworthiness with the American people and if you agree with Bernie Sanders that she should release the transcripts of her highly paid speeches to Wall Street?” he continued.

“OK, you know what? I take it back. I’m not taking another one," Obama responded to laughter.

State Dept. watchdog: Clinton violated email rules

Source: Politico

The inspector general report is the latest headache for Clinton in the scandal over her exclusive use of private email for State business.

The State Department inspector general concluded that Hillary Clinton did not comply with the agency’s policies on records, according to a report released to lawmakers on Wednesday that also revealed that Clinton and her top aides chose not to cooperate with the review.

The agency on Wednesday released the long-awaited report to Capitol Hill, copy of which was obtained by POLITICO, providing just the latest turn in the headache-inducing saga that has dogged Clinton's campaign.

This part is major cause for concern

The report states that its findings are based on interviews with current Secretary of State John Kerry and his predecessors – Madeleine Albright, Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice, but that Clinton and her deputies declined the IG’s requests for interviews.






LINK to Full OIG Report


Per - 'LiberalArkie' comment (No. 28) we have Washington Post providing direct link to OIG report.

WaPo's article is titled "State Dept. inspector general report sharply criticizes Clinton’s email practices

But, it also seems to me - the OIG item is a veiled attempt (such as Colin's items) - to diffuse the situation.

Dam Straight -

It's about time

I'm a whistle blower...and it not only sucks...its threatening

Snowden is 'Spot On'!

Getting the story out in more than 169 outlets, in dozens of different ways..doesn't work....either.

Lawyers..federal agents and even judges...all either join the dark side.....or they don't go where angels fear to tread.

Because America only pays homage to winners...defined as those that suffer extremely...But get paid..in the end.

Like Erin Brokervich

And ALL Administrations know this....that they can use their media might to disparage..andbmost of America will be happy to pounce on a victims grave.

Nobody believes Assange, Snowden or Manning

Until the system has made sure they are destroyed

Even Bernie says Snowden must be punished

Your previous remark stated your ballot was cast

So you must have picked a side.

As for me...it is a simple choice...Goldman Sachs and Bain Capital deliberately destroyed our eToys public company and my career; and were successful because the arranged for one of their law firm partners to be the very United States Attorney over the cases in question

And my daughter was abducted right after the warned me to back off...or else.

She took theur money and he hasn't

Nobody, since 2001.. Will look into the case

And she most certainly won't

But...with Bernie...I have a chance

I think being a Hillarian doesnt actually mean your a Dem

Koch brothers alao giving her support


Just sayin........

Cali Lawsuit Filed Against Sec of State on Deceptive Primary Ballots

Joining Civil Rights attorneys Bill Simpich and Stephen R. Jaffe, is the entity known as Election Justice. They filed a lawsuit against the California Sec. of State and Registrars ( link to website HERE and link to actual lawsuit - {HERE}) over allegations that the California Elections Code Section 3006(c) - that mandates all votes have the right to apply for a Presidential party ballator, are being deceived.

Whereas fake and false ballots, with bogus dates or otherwise, are sent out as "official" (btw - ???? - Mail Fraud).

Here's a nice video, from the "video.com" website, explaining what's going on.










PRESS RELEASE


ELECTION JUSTICE NEWS RELEASE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Press Conference: Friday, May 20, noon (outside) San Francisco Federal Building, 450 Golden Gate Avenue


CALIFORNIA LAWSUIT FILED OVER ELECTION LAW VIOLATIONS



SAN FRANCISCO, May 20, 2016: Civil rights attorneys and voter rights activists are filing a
civil lawsuit in Federal Court over election materials sent out in advance of the California
Primary. Critical omissions of instructions from county applications to vote by mail have
violated state election laws, according to the plaintiffs.



Civil rights attorneys Bill Simpich and Stephen R. Jaffe have filed the suit on behalf of both leftleaning
supporters of Bernie Sanders and the right-leaning American Independent Party.
“These omissions will likely discourage thousands of California voters,” says Simpich.
“Independent voters who have stated ‘No Party Preference’ (NPP) may not be able to vote in
the June 7th Primary because of the confusion over how to obtain a party-based Presidential
primary ballots. Those ballots are not automatically mailed with their nonpartisan ballot. They
must be requested by the voters. That has not been made clear in the instructions sent.”



Collaborating on the lawsuit is Election Justice, a national election integrity and voting rights
organization which made international news with their recent suit over the voter roll purges
prior to the New York Primary. “We are proud to support this effort in California as it represents
a real chance for voters to become educated and empowered to exercise their rights,” Election
Justice spokeswoman Shyla Nelson said. “We are seeing an unprecedented level of civic
engagement in this year’s election, and with that, the exposure of many flaws in our electoral
system. Election Justice is committed to fixing what’s broken and renewing the spirit of true
democracy in the selection of our nation’s leaders.”



Allegations in the lawsuit include the violation of Elections Code Section 3006(c) which
mandates that all NPP voters have the right to apply for a Presidential party ballot for the
Democratic, American Independent Party, or Libertarian parties.



Also alleged is the violation of Elections Code Section 3006(b)(3) which requires that voters be
informed of the right to personally deliver their application for a vote-by-mail ballot directly to
the county elections office by May 31 - not merely mail it. “These instructions are also missing
from some of the applications to vote by mail,” says Simpich. “The polls have been open since
May 9. Voters have the right to come to the polling place up to the final day of elections on
June 7 and ask for the ballot of their choice. We intend to make sure they know that this is their
right.”



Further, defendants Tim Depuis and John Arntz, chiefs of the Alameda County Registrar of
Voters and the San Francisco Department of Elections, distributed to voters an electronic
application to vote by mail that does not contain the mandatory notice, as seen on Depuis’
Oakland website and Artnz’s San Francisco website.



In San Francisco and other counties, election officials mailed the proper version with the
mandatory notice to independent voters, but an improper version to party-affiliated voters,
which implicitly discourages party voters from re-registering as independents. “Registration/
party affiliation changes are still possible until May 23. We are seeking an extension of the
registration period due to these errors,” Simpich said.



Voter suppression has become a central issue in this year’s hotly contested Presidential
primary season, as increased numbers of voters take to the polls and public visibility, largely
through social media, has brought a new level of transparency to public concerns. Blaire
Fellows, New York attorney and coordinator of Election Justice’s national legal team, says the
new level of public engagement on this issue is a welcome catalyst. “We have seen people get
involved in petitioning, protesting their county Boards of Election, and publicly call elected
officials to accountability. It is time this important issue get the attention it deserves,” said
Fellows.



Simpich and Jaffee bring the lawsuit to protect the voting rights of millions of California voters.
Nearly 70% of ballots cast in the 2014 California special election were by-mail, and over 65%
of the ballots cast in the 2012 presidential preference primary were by-mail. (Source: http://
www.sos.ca.gov/elections/historical-absentee/) “Because these problems are happening
throughout the state of California, we are seeking statewide relief,” said Simpich.

Lawuit seeks Court Orders for:


The plaintiffs in the lawsuit seek the following…
  1. A "declaratory judgment" essentially saying that the defendants violated the law regarding their obligation to provide voting rights notices required by statute.
  2. Wide distribution of this information via radio, TV, newspaper, internet social media platforms in Alameda County and throughout the state of California;
  3. Ensuring that sufficient ballot forms for all of the Presidential primary candidates are at all of the polling places on June 7;
  4. That no party preference voters are not refused a Presidential primary ballot if they personally appear at their proper polling place;
  5. Changing the applications at the Board of Elections websites in Alameda County, San Francisco, and throughout the state of California to conform with the essential terms set forth in the uniform application created by the Secretary of State;
  6. An order permitting the write-in of the Democratic, American Independent Party, and Libertarian candidates, or, in the alternative, segregation of the ballots that have already been cast by those with no party preference registration in order to permit voters to re-vote for the candidate of their choice by June 7;
  7. An order extending the registration deadline to June 7, in order to ensure that no party preference voters are properly informed of the option to either re-register with a party or request a Democratic, American Independent Party or Libertarian Party Presidential primary ballot;
  8. An order, as well, stating that party voters must be properly informed of the option to re-register as no party preference and request a Democratic, American Independent Party or Libertarian Party Presidential primary ballot if that is their preference;
  9. An order that provisional ballots will not be issued to voters unless there is no other alternative.

Whistleblowers Suck: G-d Save Queen, Country, Military & Wall Street

I have no idea what it is with people. Whistleblowers are only worthy of doing their deeds, getting acclaim or praise, if they are eteranlly destroyed, or dead. And even in some of those cases, people love to dance on their graves - or prison sentences.

Our world is perverse. Totally, may be eternally screwed - perverse.

There's just no winning here. I'm seeing people - venerates - of DU, being juried and convicted. Just for stating their minds. It is as if being snide is okay; but if you truly speak your mind and the snide mob disagrees, they can complain, get a jury to transpire, and - if they are fortunate enough that 4 out of 7 are on their side of the coin...BOJO!

Just sayin............................. IT SUCKS!

Do we, as Progressives, have the credo that free speech is the only way? Are we now just a realm of hate this and hate that and damn you if you enjoy pistachio and 4 out of 7 hate it?

How is it that so many here, on DU, are glad that Chelsea Manning is doing near life - in prison - for pointing out murder/cover ups?

What the friggin - frug'uch is going on - HERE?

Shhheeessshhhh!

One even made the comparison that Chelsea got of light, compared to the Rosenbergs.

Don't - I repeat - DON"T get me started on the sham of that case....

Manning, Assange, James Traficant, Governor Siegelman, Roman Polanski, Rick Converntino, Michael Ruppert and Ed Snowden

They are ALL friggin heroes - no matter how snide and cheap shot from the bench seats people are being.

Hillary is an Oligarch - A full fledge - GOT IT AS SEC. of STATE, $100 Million Dollar, Goldman Sachs Fee/Speech taking OLIGARCH; and damn any and all here, who dare look into the facts of the riggings for the sake of the lady destined.

Military may, as militaries utilize their might, to run over any nation, as main stream spins how heroic snipers are.

Wall Street lords like Blankfein can't be all bad - LOOK - who they give their money too.

Nor can Empires be all bad - for our Empire wears the white gloves and hats - as we mow down kids, collateral damagedly

As for my whistleblowing, I'm fixing to get into the face of USAG Loretta Lynch;
please - all you haters out there - do me a favor...

stay the exact same place you are now ..... and don't you dare come out to give me a high 5, if I prevail

or DARE to dance on my grave - should the worst transpire.

I promise you - if there is a heaven or hell - I'll come back and haunt you hating MoFo's!

Obit states: Given choice of Trump or Clinton, Lady Passes Away

This is beyond surreal, as an obituary states Mary Anne Alfriend...


Faced with the prospect of voting for either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, Mary Anne Noland of Richmond chose, instead, to pass into the eternal love of God on Sunday, May 15, 2016, at the age of 68. Born in Danville, Va.,

Lawyers are prudent, refraining from free advice; which

also could come back to haunt, in the future.

That being said, IMO, it really is this simple, and, as prosecutor, I'd present the case in this fashion.

1...Each and every dime to Clinton Foundation..from where

2...Emphasis added on all foreign donations (millions of$

3...The fact that the server wouldn't be consider Hers

4...compounded by fact she dodged signing regular forms

5...Special note of how many emails were deleted

6...Super special note that ALL of Bryans are missing

7...Point out what she said about GWBs vanished emails

8...And let jury decide

Also...IMO...the administration is at fault for allowing her to do thus in the first place; and working so hard to keep it secret that it was done
