Hillary Tried Changing State Dept Rules?

The Hillary Clinton Blackberry story just unfolded a new twist in this Fox News article.  “Aggressively pursued” is the term used to describe how the Clinton staff tried to change security protocols at the State Department just for their convenience. Even the most novice member of the security community recognizes the problems and dangers inherent with this type of request. What is most galling is the apparent lack of concern and/or snobbish disregard for the security of the nations most secret communications. Read but don’t enjoy the article below.

Written By Catherine Herridge, Pamela K. Browne as first appeared on Fox News:

Clinton tried to change rules to use BlackBerry in secure facility for classified information.

Less than a month after becoming secretary of state, and registering the personal email domain that she would use exclusively for government business, Hillary Clinton’s team aggressively pursued changes to existing State Department security protocols so she could use her BlackBerry in secure facilities for classified information, according to new documents released under the Freedom of Information Act.

“Anyone who has any appreciation at all of security, you don’t ask a question like that,” cybersecurity analyst Morgan Wright told Fox News.  “It is contempt for the system, contempt for the rules that are designed to protect the exact kind of information that was exposed through this email set up. “

Current and former intelligence officials grimaced when asked by Fox News about the use of wireless communications devices, such as a BlackBerry, in a SCIF (Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility) emphasizing its use would defeat the purpose of the secure facility, and it is standard practice to leave all electronics outside.

A former State Department employee familiar with the Clinton request emphasized security personnel at the time thought the BlackBerry was only for unclassified material, adding their concerns would have been magnified if they had known Clinton’s email account also held classified material.

“When you allow devices like this into a SCIF, you can allow the bad guys to listen in,” Wright added.

      doesn’t matter … the espionage act does NOT require INTENT … and in fact doing government business on a private system to avoid foia is also a felony … simply having it BARS her from being eligible EVER to run for office. the fact that she tried to change the rules is all they need … open and shut case … prison.

      Exactly…and when she was unable to change the rules she thumbed her nose at them and did it anyway.

    Hillary’s Blackberry and her Private Email Server may have been Hacked by the Terrorists who killed Ambassador Stevens and 3 other Americans in Benghazi … if that is true, just imagine what National Security Information Hillary could have Exposed to our Enemies if she had been Elected President in 2008.

    The Hildebitch believes shes above the law and above reproach. She’s more of a sociopathic psycho than the goatfcking muzzie in the black mosque is. If shes elected kiss your life savings goodbye. She’ll redistribute it faster than the goatfcker ever could.

    I am not surprised at all Hillary and the administration should be in jail period

  • FSHNT21

    When did “rules” EVER apply to the Clinton’s ??
    Everyone made jokes about the Kennedy’s being America’s “Royalty”, but they can ‘t hold a candle to the Clinton family with THAT attitude…
    Her indictment can’t come soon enough and if Barry Boy’s DOJ decides not to prosecute, he needs to be removed from office…

  • Roy

    This is just another example of the Demonrat political elites in general and the Clintons in particular considering themselves to be above the law and better than everyone else.

  • laxmom1

    This is why the political establishment is scared sh!tless of Donald Trump…he wouldn’t put up with this double standard crap. Heads will roll under a Trump administration.
