FBI found Hillary Clinton’s emails in Obama White House, former top official says.
A former top FBI official said a repository of Hillary Clinton’s emails was obtained by the Obama White House
As part of a court-ordered discovery related to Clinton’s unauthorized email server, Bill Priestap was asked by conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch to identify representatives of Clinton, her State Department staff, and government agencies from which “email repositories were obtained” by the FBI.
He divulged a nonexhaustive list, which included the Executive Office of the President.“This astonishing confirmation, made under oath by the FBI, shows that the Obama FBI had to go to President Obama’s White House office to find emails that Hillary Clinton tried to destroy or hide from the American people,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement. “No wonder Hillary Clinton has thus far skated — Barack Obama is implicated in her email scheme.”
Obama himself said he learned of Clinton’s private email server “the same time everybody else learned it through news reports,” during an interview with CBS News in 2015.
Now that Hillary Clinton has chosen to rise publicly to the Trump impeachment howl with her reciting chapter and verse the prescribed litany of Trump’s “offenses” I couldn’t resist looking back at her earliest days of criminality. That being the use of one Laura Callahan that was a provable crime. Had she been stopped then, we would have spared ourselves a whole lot of pain.
When I first ran into and wrote a post back in 2011 concerning Ms Callahan, it made absolutely no sense why Ms Callahan was hired to the second top position in security. A person who had lied about her resume that indicated her educational achievement was no more than back dated diplomas from a diploma mill.
Not only that, but even when it was discovered, she kept moving up the swamp governmental ladder. Then the ah-ha moment. Now we know why. I will include the old post in its entirety. Obama hires a security risk for sensitive post 2011. Hint: Ex-Clinton staffer ‘lost’ thousands of White House e-mails, booted by DHS for faking credentials. (Laugh line here!)
Hillary Was Burying Emails Since She Was First Lady…
Via NY Post:

While the State Department’s own internal probe found former Secretary Hillary Clinton violated federal record keeping laws, it’s not the first time she and her top aides shielded her e-mail from public disclosure while serving in a government position.
As first lady, Hillary was embroiled in another scheme to bury sensitive WhiteHouse e-mails, known internally as “Project X.”
In 1999, as investigators looked into Whitewater, Travelgate, Filegate and other scandals involving the then-first lady, it was discovered that more than 1 million subpoenaed e-mails were mysteriously “lost” due to a “glitch” in a West Wing computer server.
The massive hole in White House archives covered a critical two-year period — 1996 to 1998 — when Republicans and special prosecutor Ken Starr were subpoenaing White House e-mails.
Despite separate congressional investigations and a federal lawsuit over ProjectX, high-level e-mails dealing with several scandals were never turned over. And the full scope of Bill and Hillary Clintons’ culpability in the parade of scandals was never known.
During the Project X email scandal, career White House staffers and contractors found that someone close to the first lady had basically turned off the White House’s automated email archiving system. They fingered White House “special assistant” Laura Crabtree Callahan, who was overseeing the computer contractors
To those well-versed in Clinton shenanigans, this all sounds distressingly familiar.

So who is minding the store? Anyone wonder why Laura was chosen? Anyone care? If she can get hired, anyone can apparently.
The administration in May quietly hired Laura Callahan for a sensitive post at the U.S. Cyber Command, a newly created agency set up to harden military networks as part of an effort to prevent a “cyberspace version of Pearl Harbor.” I ask why do we need a new Department?

“She’s a security risk,” said a government computer specialist. “I don’t know how she got clearance.”
“We’re fuming about it,” said another federal employee. “Knowing her, I don’t see how she could ever be 100-percent honest.”
Investigators found that Callahan paid a diploma mill thousands of dollars for her bachelors, masters and doctorate degrees in computer science. She back-dated the degrees, all obtained between 2000 and 2001, to appear as if she earned them in 1993, 1995 and 2000, respectively. She landed the job of deputy DHS chief information officer in 2003.
Just that vast Right Wing conspiracy don’t you know.
