State Dept. intensifies email probe of Hillary Clinton’s former aides

“I’d like to think that this is just routine, but something strange is going on,” said Jeffrey Feltman, a former assistant secretary for Near East Affairs. In early 2018 Feltman received a letter informing him that a half dozen of his messages included classified information. Then a few weeks ago he was found culpable for more than 50 emails that contained classified information.

“A couple of the emails cited by State as problems were sent after my May 2012 retirement, when I was already working for the United Nations,” he said.

A former senior U.S. official familiar with the email investigation described it as a way for Republicans “to keep the Clinton email issue alive.” The former official said the probe was “a way to tarnish a whole bunch of Democratic foreign policy people” and discourage if not prevent them from returning to government service.

Those targeted began receiving letters in August, saying, “You have been identified as possibly bearing some culpability” in supposedly newly uncovered “security incidents,” according to a copy of one letter obtained by The Washington Post.

In many cases, the incidents appear to center on the sending of information attributed to foreign officials, including summaries of phone conversations with foreign diplomats — a routine occurrence among State Department employees.

Many of those who have been targeted by the probe and found “not culpable,” described it as an effort to harass diplomats for the routine conduct of their job.

“It is such an obscene abuse of power and time involving so many people for so many years,” one former U.S. official said of the inquiry.

“This has just sucked up people’s lives for years and years.”

Several of those who have been questioned said that the State Department Bureau of Diplomatic Security investigators made it clear that they were pursuing the matter reluctantly, and under external pressure.

One official said the investigators were apologetic: “They realize how absurd it is.”

1. These are seriously corrupt attempts to subvert the judicial and other systems.

Some highly corrupt officials are going along with these attempts.

Stand up and register your protest if you are being coerced into these corrupt efforts.

3. Officially out of ammunition

All they've got is bullcrap and spitballs. They are literally circling the drain. Just a couple more glugs and turns and they'll vanish down that great vortex of inevitable doom

6. Yes they should...

and there is so much more that should be investigated, yet they have failed to do any of that. It seems to me that there is at least a crime a day that is being covered up, or at least trying to be covered up. There are way too many for me to list!!

5. If this weren't so pathetic, it would be hilarious. They "have nothing" - as they say of us.
