That Hillary Clinton was actively seeking a way to avoid the Secure Systems at State Department is now proven with her email exchange with Colin Powel….. She admits to knowing that Powell had a Blackberry that he used. Obama, however, had discontinued use of the Blackberrys for SECURITY REASONS. That was not going to work for Hillary,,,, Why? Why was she in need of another method, another channel. One can only assume what it was that she wanted to keep from FOIA. That she knew it was against security protocol “No one fesses up to knowing how you use it”.. is plainly evident. Really, “no one fesses up” !! “So any and all advice” (on how to avoid secure channels) “is welcome”!
He gave it up for a smartphone only this year,although his phone cannot text or play music for security reasons.
Clinton wrote to Powell: “President Obama has struck a blow for berry addicts like us. I just have to figure out how to bring along the State Dept. Any and all advice is welcome. All the best to you and Alma, Hillary.”
“Dear Colin, I hope to catch up soon with you, but I have one pressing question which only you can answer!
What were the restrictions on your use of your blackberry? Did you use it in your personal office? I’ve been told that the DSS [Diplomatic Security Service] personnel knew you had one and used it but no one fesses up to knowing how you used it!”
In the email, Powell expressed frustration over State Department rules regarding the use of personal digital assistants (PDAs) and mobile phones in secure spaces.
“When I asked why not they gave me all kinds of nonsense about how they gave out signals and could be read by spies, etc.,” Powell said in the email.
“I had numerous meetings with them. We even opened one up for them to try to explain to me why it was more dangerous than say, a remote control for one of the many tvs in the suite. Or something embedded in my shoe heel,” Powell said in the email.
Powell said the NSA and CIA never gave him a satisfactory answer, “so, we just went about our business and stopped asking.” He said he used an “ancient” version of a PDA — the predecessor of the modern-day smart phone.
Powell in the email also warned Clinton about using a BlackBerry.
“However, there is a real danger. If it is public that you have a BlackBerry and it it (sic) government and you are using it, government or not, to do business, it may become an official record and subject to the law,” Powell wrote.
Hillary was unsatisfied with the limitations of what Powell related to her in his usage.. She realized Powell’s use of a commercial server would not suffice,,as he pointed out that if it was made public ,,the records may become official records and “subject to the law””…
So after all the warnings, after she admits that the security protocol will not work for her, Hillary establishes her PRIVATE Server.. This is not a commercial server that she would not have access too, you know to wipe clean like with a cloth..no this is a server in her house to which she could use bleach bit eradicating software or toss into the ocean if need be. FOIA, Security, and the people be damned!!!
