Long arm of the law closing in on Hillary!

Thursday, my organization, Freedom Watch, went where no congressional committee had the guts to go before: We took real action to get a federal court to immediately seize the hard drives of Hillary Clinton's private email server. (See freedomwatchusa.org.)

I asked the court to appoint a forensic expert to inspect and recreate the missing email evidence from Clintons' tenure as secretary of state. We did this without any of the power or funding of Congress and without the years of delay on Capitol Hill. Forget about Trey Gowdy and the Government Oversight and Reform Committee. Unlike Gowdy, who has accomplished little to nothing and indeed dithered as Hillary was busy destroying evidence, we are not pursuing Hillary for show, but to uncover her illegal dough!

Are we watching on a snow-covered mountain the first moments of an avalanche beginning to slide down hill? Following our early lead at Freedom Watch, mainstream journalists are now being forced to pursue the story that Hillary Clinton, as secretary of state, traded official U.S. government favors in return for donations to the Clinton Foundation, often from foreign governments, companies, or interests. If it didn't involve the Clintons, these journalists would not be shy to already call it bribery.

The Hill, a good conservative-leaning publication, is reporting the same story as WND, under the headline: "Clinton changed stance on trade deal after donations to foundation." Hillary Clinton reversed her position as secretary of state on Colombia's record of human rights abuses after a company and its owner donated heavily to the Clinton Foundation. That's what former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and his wife, Maureen, were recently sentenced to two years in prison for. At The Hill and International Business Times, the story is mainstream now. But the McDonnells were small-time in comparison.

Although Hillary had left office by then, Politico reported April 8, "Cash flows to Clinton Foundation." Before a $1 million donation to the Clinton Foundation from a company owned by Morroco's royalty in 2011, "Clinton's State Department had accused the Moroccan government of 'arbitrary arrests and corruption in all branches of government.'"

Then, after that $1 million donation, "When Hillary Clinton announced the Marrakech meeting in September, she praised Morocco as 'a vital hub for economic and cultural exchange' in a region 'in the midst of dramatic changes.'" The pattern is clear: Hillary will promote your country and grease the Obama administration if your donation is large enough.

What was contained in Hillary Clinton's 32,000 emails from her time as secretary of state, kept hidden on her unusual private email server? We at Freedom Watch are determined to find out. But from the Clintons' track record, we can assume those emails contained Hillary negotiating and selling the U.S. government to the highest bidder – just as she and Slick Willy did in the 1990s with communist China, a scandal I triggered and uncovered at the time.

The motion filed this week was to have Hillary Clinton's computer file server seized by order of a federal court for a forensic analysis under Rules 34 and 64 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. Earlier, we filed a lawsuit under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization (RICO) Act against the Clintons and the Clinton Foundation. I filed Klayman v. Hillary Clinton, et al. in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida (Case No. 15-cv-80388). The Complaint lays out how the Clintons have operated a criminal racketeering enterprise to solicit bribes in the form of donations to the Clinton Foundation in return for the sale of U.S. government favors, actions, policy changes, and decisions, and all on a massive scale.

Hillary turned over to the U.S. Department of State 30,490 emails from her official work as secretary of state only in March 2015, two years after she left the post Feb. 1, 2013. Another 32,000 emails she decided for herself are "private" (which could mean political and non-governmental). She did not return those to State. Her attorney, David Kendall – with whom I have locked horns over the last two decades – insists in a letter to Congress that all the data – everything – from the computer file server has now been deleted. I have learned from experience not to give up so easily.

On Sept. 20, 2012, and repeatedly after, congressional committees demanded all records about the Benghazi terrorist attack. Legally, this requires a freeze on all records. Yet Hillary shredded 32,000 emails. What Hillary deleted must be worse than the public relations damage and risk of prosecution of deleting them.

It's time the mainstream media find the courage to speak the truth. However, sometimes the truth is so incredible that some people cannot see what is in front of them. If private citizens with Italian names had been doing for 30 years what the Clintons and their team of loyalists have been up to, we would instantly call it organized crime.

Second, with a touch of irony, I asked through the Freedom of Information Act the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to look in their surveillance database for copies of Hillary Clinton's emails. Edward Snowden revealed that the U.S. government is routinely intercepting and storing the emails of U.S. citizens without a warrant.

Obviously, Hillary Clinton's private email server in the basement of her Chappaqua, New York, mansion was not secure from hacking or surveillance. Hillary's emails often crossed international boundaries while she was traveling around the world. More than likely, Hillary was emailing to foreign countries and foreign businesses.

So I figure the NSA and CIA, like America's enemies around the world, already have copies of Clinton's insecure emails. The intelligence services of Russia, China, North Korea, Iran, and Venezuela, for example, were freely reading Hillary's mail. Our enemies knew our negotiating positions as soon as Hillary Clinton hit "send." One wonders what opportunities those emails will provide for foreign countries to blackmail Hillary Clinton if she is elected president.

If the NSA and CIA refuse to look in their database of intercepted emails, we will have yet another opportunity to challenge in court the flawed reasoning and empty excuses being used to engage in this illegal surveillance in the first place. Heads I win, tails you lose is a useful strategy.

Bottom line: The long arm of the law is finally closing in on the Clintons! Forget Gowdy and Congress! Forget the mainstream media reporting the whole truth! We the People are taking matters into our own legal hands! It's past time that Hillary, the "Wicked Witch of the Left," be put behind bars, where she can do no further harm to our nation.
