In another NY Post hand grenade lobbed at the Clinton campaign, the former Inspector General of the US State Department (DoS) maintains that Hilary Clinton is lying out her ass - again. Howard Krongard sets out the argument that Clinton deliberately skirted (pants suited?) the law when she set up her private email server.
“This was all planned in advance” to skirt rules governing federal records management, said Howard J. Krongard, who served as the agency’s inspector general from 2005 to 2008.Krongard further stated that Clinton purposefully obstructed the appointment of another IG for the DoS in order to avoid the discovery of her illegal server - and Lord knows what else.
The Harvard-educated lawyer points out that, from Day One, Clinton was never assigned and never used a state.gov e-mail address like previous secretaries.
“That’s a change in the standard. It tells me that this was premeditated. And this eliminates claims by the State Department that they were unaware of her private e-mail server until later,” Krongard said in an exclusive interview. “How else was she supposed to do business without e-mail?”
He also points to the unusual absence of a permanent inspector general during Clinton’s entire 2009-2013 term at the department. He said the 5¹/₂-year vacancy was unprecedented.This hag is poison. She has the Clinton Touch - she corrupts everything she gets her paws on. The last public execution in America occurred in 1936. We really need to bring them back under the Clinton Public Execution Renewal Act of 2016. Let the crows pick her bones clean.
“This is a major gap. In fact, it’s without precedent,” he said. “It’s the longest period any department has gone without an IG.”
Inspectors general serve an essential and unique role in the federal government by independently investigating agency waste, fraud and abuse. Their oversight also covers violations of communications security procedures.
“It’s clear she did not want to be subject to internal investigations,” Krongard said. An e-mail audit would have easily uncovered the secret information flowing from classified government networks to the private unprotected system she set up in her New York home.
Hopefully former IG Krongard as taken precautions to protect himself and his family. At a minimum he should triple his life insurance policy.
And to just stir the pot a bit more - has anyone asked Kerry how long it took to him to get his official DoS secure email account set up?
