With Hillary Clinton’s Email Lies Unravelling, 147 FBI Agents Are On Her Heels

by Tyler Durden, Zero Hedge

Earlier this month, conservative legal advocacy group Judicial Watch released a series of documents obtained via an FOIA request which appear to prove that Hillary Clinton knew her BlackBerry wasn’t secure when she and her staff moved into Mahogany Row (the nickname given to the set of offices reserved for senior officials in the Department of State).

E-mail exchanges between Senior Coordinator for Security Infrastructure Donald Reid and the NSA show Clinton was intent on obtaining a secure BlackBerry that she could use in restricted areas.
Although Clinton would of course be given a desktop computer on which she could safely conduct state business, Reid said the Secretary had become “addicted” to her BlackBerry during her ill-fated 2008 Presidential campaign. “The issue here is one of personal comfort,” an e-mail from Reid reads. “S [Secretary Clinton] does not use a personal computer so our view of someone wedded to their email (why doesn’t she use her desktop when in SCIF?) doesn’t fit this scenario … during the campaign she was urged to keep in contact with thousands via a BB … once she got the hang of it she was hooked … now everyday [sic], she feels hamstrung because she has to lock her BB up.

but what possible harm could silly Hillary's Blackberry have done, you might well ask. That is not exactly the point, because once you have spoken an oath in front of witnesses or signed a secrecy document  relating to government classified information, you are bound by it no matter how trivial the information might be. A crime has been committed, a crime as serious as some for which senior military officers have been dishonourably discharged and even imprisoned.

A lot rests on whether Mrs. Clinton was just stupid or was so arrogant she had no trouble believing she is above the law. At this stage we do not know, but (back to Tyler >>)
Well the FBI intends to find out, because as a new Washington Post piece (which you're encouraged to read in its entirety) details, the Bureau now has 147 agents on the case. "One hundred forty-seven FBI agents have been deployed to run down leads" WaPo writes, adding that "the FBI has accelerated the investigation because officials want to avoid the possibility of announcing any action too close to the election."
