Bill Clinton pardoned former CIA Director for having Classified Material on home computer


Here is a walk down memory lane. I was trying to figure out which of the Clinton’s scandals would be a good pick for a Saturday review when I came upon this little gem. John Deutch. One of Bill’s many pardons given to a Clinton loyalist. Hillary keeps insisting that there is nothing to see, well, for some reason, I don’t think Deutch was so much different. I just wish some newsperson would ask her about this little pardon. Here we go:


Perhaps she’s forgotten one of her husband’s final acts in the Oval Office: issuing a presidential pardon to former CIA director John
Deutch. Deutch’s offense? Keeping classified material on unsecured home computers.

The pardon came just as Deutch was reportedly going to cop a plea with the Justice Department. Deutch headed the CIA from May 1995 to December 1996. Several days after he left the agency, classified material was discovered on a government-owned computer at his house in Bethesda, Md. Additionally, unsecured classified magnetic media were found in the study. According to the CIA inspector general’s report, the computer had been “designated for unclassified use only.”

As the investigation progressed, the IG discovered that Deutch had “continuously processed classified information on government-owned desktop computers configured for unclassified use during his tenure as DCI [director, CIA] [and that] . . .  these unclassified computers were located in [his] Bethesda, Maryland and Belmont, Massachusetts residences, his offices in the Old Executive Office Building, and at CIA Headquarters.”

    Of all people you would think that Hillary would remember this and not put herself in the same position but I think this shows us just how arrogant she really is!

      It really does stretch the imagination if she really has it all together.Did she really think this would never come up?

    Ah the good old days when a Clinton operative could stuff national security docs in ones underwear and skate or just get pardoned if prosecuted. ..unless you’re a republican of course. This witch burned Nixon for a mere missing 18 minutes of dead air.

      Strange isn’t it. Though in those days we had an ethical Dept of Justice with independence and an Attorney General as well who was willing to take corruption on.

        Well, Bubba was our first black president and she the first black First Lady and therefore they deserve the deference they will always receive. 👥

      And we are suppose to think that Bill and Hillary never had a conversation about it years before? They really do think they are something very special.

      Yes, GREAT find. i had forgotten all about this. Remarkable the amnesia, even in those of us who actively follow this corruption. I’m guessing that if it worked for Bill in the past that he probably was the one to encourage her to do it. Worked before and now that there is a president she must feel pretty confident that she won’t get much but a slap on the hand. Why not, now, make it a crime with a punishment attached with it for any future acts? Hmmmmm.

        There were so many scandals to chose from, it was hard to pick out a good one, though this might be just about the best.
