NSA whistleblower: The agency has all of Hillary’s deleted emails
When Donald Trump sarcastically appealed to the Russians to release Hillary Clinton’s 33,000 deleted emails from her personal server, he was asking the wrong spooks. An archive of those emails exists at the National Security Agency (NSA), according to a former highly placed officer there who resigned as a whistleblower. Aaron Klein of Breitbart reports:
[William] Binney was an architect of the NSA’s surveillance program. He became a famed whistleblower when he resigned on October 31, 2001, after spending more than 30 years with the agency.
He was speaking on this reporter’s Sunday radio program, “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio,” broadcast on New York’s AM 970 The Answer and Philadelphia’s NewsTalk 990 AM.
Binney referenced testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee in March 2011 by then-FBI Director Robert S. Mueller in which Meuller spoke of the FBI’s ability to access various secretive databases “to track down known and suspected terrorists.”
Stated Binney: “Now what he (Mueller) is talking about is going into the NSA database, which is shown of course in the (Edward) Snowden material released, which shows a direct access into the NSA database by the FBI and the CIA. Which there is no oversight of by the way. So that means that NSA and a number of agencies in the U.S. government also have those emails.”
“So if the FBI really wanted them they can go into that database and get them right now,” he stated of Clinton’s emails as well as DNC emails.
Asked point blank if he believed the NSA has copies of “all” of Clinton’s emails, including the deleted correspondence, Binney replied in the affirmative.
“Yes,” he responded. “That would be my point. They have them all and the FBI can get them right there.”
So let’s get this straight. The emails Hillary wiped (not just with a cloth) from her server exist in the hands of an unknown number of intelligence agencies, all of which are capable of using them for leverage. For example:
Binney surmised that the hack of the DNC could have been coordinated by someone inside the U.S. intelligence community angry over Clinton’s compromise of national security data with her email use.
It seems to me that a president responding to blackmailers on all sides of global realpolitik is not a benefit to the citizens of the United States.
