Past Presidents Who Violated National Security and Regulations by Storing Classified Documents in Unsecure Areas

While the weaponized DOJ and FBI engage in political theater against President Trump, several past White House occupants have escaped punishment for mishandling classified documents.

On 23 September, Jesse Watters recounted all the security violations of GW Bush, GHW Bush, Obama, and Bill Clinton regarding their storage of classified documents in abandoned strip malls, furniture stores, and warehouses.

Bubba Clinton stored Whitewater documents in a truck of a damaged car:

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Coming into a treasure-trove of documents that included a cashier’s check payable to Bill Clinton, Whitewater prosecutors have pieced together previously unknown transactions at an Arkansas savings and loan, people familiar with the probe say.

Thousands of pages of documents pulled from a tornado-damaged car last March have taken the investigation in “new and interesting directions,” said one source, a grand jury witness who spoke only on condition of anonymity.

A featured exhibit at several grand jury sessions was a cashier’s check for almost $30,000 to Clinton, several witnesses say.

The discovery of the 1982 Clinton check and other documents missing for a decade has opened a new line of inquiry by prosecutors into whether Clinton testified accurately about his relationship with James and Susan McDougal and their failed Arkansas savings and loan, the witnesses said.

The president swore under oath last year that he “never borrowed any money” from the McDougals’ failing Madison Guaranty S&L.

The president’s Whitewater lawyer, David Kendall, questioned the authenticity of the documents yesterday, saying they may have the credibility of a “freshly written Elvis autobiography,” and that it’s time for “a wrap-up” of the “interminable, leak-ridden” investigation being conducted by independent counsel Kenneth Starr.

Deborah Gershman, a spokeswoman for Starr’s office, declined to comment.

Kendall said that “if authentic,” the check appears likely to have been one issued in the amount of $27,600 to pay off a loan at a bank owned by McDougal – a $30,000 loan he said McDougal took out in August 1981 to provide capital at the Whitewater real-estate venture jointly owned by the Clintons and the McDougals. “Neither the president nor Mrs. Clinton had signed for this loan,” Kendall said.

Kendall was unavailable to discuss why, in that case, Madison would have issued a check to Clinton or how that squares with the president’s statement that he never borrowed money from McDougal’s savings and loan.

Witnesses said markings on the cashier’s check, which bore no Clinton endorsement, suggested that the proceeds may have been deposited in one of two Arkansas institutions where Clinton and his wife, Hillary, did business – Madison Bank & Trust, owned by the McDougals, or Union National Bank.

The loan that Kendall cited as the possible reason for the check payable to Clinton also came from Madison Bank & Trust.

The documents were found by a car-repair-shop operator in the trunk of an old Mercury Marquis – its paint peeled and windows blown out – that was damaged when tornadoes swept across Arkansas in March.

The documents had been given a decade ago to Madison Guaranty S&L employee Henry Floyd to be delivered to a warehouse for storage, but Floyd’s car broke down.

Floyd wrote two checks for the repair work that bounced, and ultimately abandoned the car altogether.

“I just forgot the Madison documents were in the trunk,” Floyd said in an interview.

The vehicle sat unnoticed in a storage yard for old cars until the garage owner’s stunning discovery.

“The first person I told was my accountant. He said, `You got something here,’ and his eyes got big,” recalled the garage owner, speaking on condition of anonymity.

“There were cashier’s checks just lying there. I come to one that has Bill Clinton’s name on it; I saw McDougal’s name, Jim Guy Tucker’s name, and I thought this might be something they (prosecutors) are looking for,” the owner added.

Tucker, who succeeded Clinton as Arkansas governor, resigned last year after being convicted of fraud and conspiracy in the Whitewater case.

The garage operator said he talked to one of his relatives, who contacted the FBI.

The Obama Foundation admitted that they kept classified documents in a furniture warehouse:

Hoffman Estates” is a Chicago area location containing an abandoned furniture store and warehouse.  The Obama Foundation leased, then re-upped the lease, to use the facility to store all the paper documents from the Obama administration {Location Link}.

The Obama administration told the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) they were going to upload the documents into a digital form for use in the Obama library.  The paper documents were, still are, held at the Hoffman Estate warehouse while this digitization process took place.  It should be noted, the Obama Foundation has never digitized the records, hence they renewed the warehouse lease.

Contrast against the DOJ-NSD legal position about classified records held in the secure facility of Mar-a-Lago, a 2018 letter {Obama.org pdf here} from the Obama Foundation to the NARA is an example of the two-tiered selective justice system.  Within the 2018 letter the Obama team admit to storing both “classified and unclassified” documents at the warehouse: [Page #2, bullet-point 7]

 

Obviously, there were no raids on Hoffman Estates from the FBI to secure the classified documents.  Nor did the DOJ National Security Division trigger a criminal investigation of President Obama for holding documents, particularly classified documents, against the interests of the NARA while they “digitized them;” a process, which again should be noted, never even began.

The intent of sharing this information is just to highlight the political dynamic within the NARA, DOJ and FBI as it pertains to selective enforcement of presidential records.

 

 

Bubba Clinton hid tapes in his sock drawer:

……“Judge’s ruling over audio tapes hidden in Bill Clinton’s sock drawer could significantly impact Donald Trump’s effort to contest FBI raid of Mar-a-Lago,” journalist John Solomon tweeted Thursday.

The ruling involved audio tapes Clinton stashed in a sock drawer that he used for his autobiography and that were also mined by writer Taylor Branch in Branch’s book, “Wrestling History: The Bill Clinton Tapes,” about Clinton, according to CBS.

The tapes became controversial when the watchdog group Judicial Watch went to court to demand the tapes be given to the National Archives and Records Administration, so the American people could hear them.

U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson rejected the suit in March 2012.

In a report for Just the News, Solomon pointed to a few paragraphs of the 27-page ruling as significant because they indicated a president had wide latitude concerning documents under the Presidential Records Act.

“Under the statutory scheme established by the PRA, the decision to segregate personal materials from Presidential records is made by the President, during the President’s term and in his sole discretion,” Jackson wrote.

“Since the President is completely entrusted with the management and even the disposal of Presidential records during his time in office, it would be difficult for this Court to conclude that Congress intended that he would have less authority to do what he pleases with what he considers to be his personal records,” the judge wrote.

The ruling also indicated seizing such records was not appropriate.

……“The government, the lawyer for the Archives, said, ‘You know what? If documents are in the former President’s hands, where they’re presumptively personal, we just, you know, we presume they’re personal,’” Fitton said, Just the News reported.

“The Justice Department previously had told us in response to a question about Bill Clinton: ‘Tough luck, it’s his.’ But they changed their mind for Donald Trump?” he said. “The law and court decision suggests that Trump is right. And frankly, based on this analysis, Trump should get every single document they took from him back. It’s all personal records.”

Bubba and Hillary held onto documents that were supposed to be handed over to the National Archives:

A trove of Clinton White House records long processed for release remains hidden from public view at the Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock — even though the legal basis initially used to withhold them expired more than a year ago.
The papers contain confidential advice given to or sought by President Bill Clinton, including communications with then-first lady Hillary Clinton, and records about people considered for appointments to federal office.
About 33,000 pages of documents are involved, according to the National Archives, which runs the library.
Under the “Presidential Records Act”>Presidential Records Act, such records can be withheld for up to 12 years after a president leaves office. However, at the 12-year mark, those broad restrictions fall away and the once-secret presidential papers are generally subject to disclosure. For the Clinton files, that milestone came and went in January 2013.
……Unlike collections in other hands, the withheld files at the Clinton Library are under the control of the federal government. Obama would have to choose whether to back any privilege assertion by the ex-president — a move that would be in tension with public statements Obama made as a candidate and as president, promising to improve access to presidential records.

Aside from the Clinton Library documents, Hillary deliberately used an illegal, unsecure server to store and transmit classified information, tampered with evidence, deleted incriminating emails, and lied before Congress. It’s right in front of everyone’s face.  She knew that it was a national security violation, but did it anyway.

All kinds of federal laws were broken.

Mishandling Classified Information
Executive Order 13526 and 18 U.S.C Sec. 793(f) of the federal code make it unlawful to send or store classified information on personal email.

Violation of The 2009 Federal Records Act
Section 1236.22 of the 2009 National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) requirements states that:

“Agencies that allow employees to send and receive official electronic mail messages using a system not operated by the agency must ensure that Federal records sent or received on such systems are preserved in the appropriate agency record keeping system.”

State Department policy on secure emails

“It is the Department’s general policy that normal day-to-day operations be conducted on an authorized AIS, which has the proper level of security control to provide nonrepudiation, authentication and encryption, to ensure confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the resident information. The Department’s authorized telework solution(s) are designed in a manner that meet these requirements and are not considered endpoints outside of the Department’s management control.”

Comey gave immunity to five Clinton State Department aides and IT experts.  Those aides include Cheryl Mills, Clinton’s former chief of staff, along with two other State Department staffers, John Bentel and Heather Samuelson, Bryan Pagliano, Clinton’s former IT aide, and Paul Combetta, an employee at Platte River networks, the firm hired to manage her server after she left the State Department.

Attorney General Loretta Lynch met with Bill Clinton on board her private jet in what was clearly a conflict of interest and a conversation on whether or not the DOJ would indict Hillary for her crimes.

After that, the fix was in.

By the way: Obama knew about her unsecure email and engaged in correspondence. And he lied about it. If Clinton had been charged, Obama’s culpable involvement would have been blatant.

Lynch obstructed justice  and Comey abetted the entire thing.  They belong in jail right along with Hillary.

If all that wasn’t bad enough, the ChiComs hacked into her server and used the information to assassinate operatives who were working for the U.S.   In January, 2017, the FBI released a document dump that showed Hillary’s emails were accessed by “foreign actors” and that she sent classified emails regarding NATO strategies, Iran, Yemen, Bahrain, and secret intelligence from Hamas, to  Oscar Flores, one of Bill Clinton’s aides, so that he could “please print” them for her.

Why in the fuck didn’t the FBI raid her house?

Former Clinton regime CIA director John Deutch took classified information home and stored it on his personal computer. He got a slap on the wrist.

I was an intelligence analyst for the bulk of my Army career. I had a TS/SCI clearance. If I had done a fraction of what these lowlifes  got away with, I’d have been Court Martialed, given a dishonorable discharge, and thrown under Leavenworth.

There’s a two-tiered system of justice; one set of rules for Dems, another set of rules for everyone else.
