REPORT: Obama White House Tracked FOIA Request for Clinton Email Kerfuffle

More evidence has emerged suggesting that the Obama White House was in cahoots with Hillary Clinton during her inexcusable and illegal use of a private email server in the State Department.

No story was bigger during the 2016 election than that of Hillary Clinton’s brazen abuses of power while acting as Secretary of State.

The former First Lady, who served at the head of the State Department for President Barack Obama, has long been seen as a DC swamp creature and an establishment stalwart.  During the 2016 election, Clinton was under the microscope even more thoroughly, as the nation attempted to vet her for the highest office in the land.

Spoiler alert:  We didn’t like what we saw, and even after rigging the democratic primaries Clinton was sent packing in November by the American people.

One of the most damning scandals that Clinton was forced to reckon with surrounded her illegal and inexcusable use of a private, hidden email server in the State Department.  This illicit device allowed Clinton to conduct backdoor international business on the taxpayers’ dime, all while hiding her behavior from government oversight.

The American people demanded answers in the case, and some even attempted to use the Freedom of Information Act to do so.

This was something that the Obama White House was watching carefully.

The Obama White House kept tabs on a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for information on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s email accounts that the State Department improperly denied, according to newly released emails.

The emails, which were provided to Judicial Watch, show for the first time that the Obama White House was aware of the Clinton-related FOIA request, which the liberal watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) submitted to the State Department in December 2012.

Then came the somewhat predictable lies from our government.

The State Department denied the request in May 2013, claiming that no responsive records existed. That despite officials at the State Department, the White House and even President Obama himself knowing that Clinton used a personal email account for government business.

The State Department’s inspector general determined in a report released on Jan. 7, 2016 that the State Department’s denial of the CREW request was “inaccurate and incomplete.”

The federal government’s secrecy was not something intended by our Founding Fathers and, as Americans grow ever more impatient with Washington’s unwillingness to function appropriately, these infuriating federalés could soon be facing a reckoning from We The People.

SEE IT: Man Arrested After Holiday-Themed Arson at Fox News

Thankfully, no one was injured in the incident.

To say that Americans are politically agitated would be the understatement of the last 140 years, and the evidence continues to pile up in the latter stages of 2021.

We’re at each other’s throats, to be blunt about it.  Not since the Civil War has the nation so viciously despised itself, and the violence inherent to these sorts of conflicts has just begun.

This week’s flagship fracas comes to us from Fox News, where the network’s beaming bastion of the holiday season was torched overnight.

The massive All-American Christmas Tree outside Fox News’ New York City headquarters was seriously damaged in a fire early Wednesday and police say they arrested the man accused of sparking the flames.

Fox News security spotted the suspect, later identified as Craig Tamanaha, climbing the 50-foot-tall tree at the center of Fox Square just after midnight. The Sixth Avenue and 48th Street location is in the heart of Midtown.

NYPD officers arrived at the scene and saw the suspect running from the location. They took him into custody before filing charges that included criminal mischief, reckless endangerment and arson. City firefighters managed to extinguish the blaze.

Images from the incident were soon blasted all over social media.

Biden Takes Aim at Putin with Serious Ukraine Threat

But can a weak Biden administration really made a dent in the Russian leader’s plans?

Published

on

Russia is almost undoubtedly preparing themselves for an invasion of Ukraine, and there is but one nation that has the leverage to attempt to stop them:  The United States.

Russia’s leader, Vladimir Putin, has long appeared poised to attempt to reunited the old Soviet Union, with Ukraine and Crimea being his first targets.  Crimea’s annexation was likely just the start, in all honesty, and there is little doubt that the former KGB man is thirsty for more.

A recent buildup of Russian forces on the border with Ukraine has now prompted US President Joe Biden to take aim at Putin, and it came with a warning that harkened back to the Obama administration.

President Joe Biden warned Russian President Vladimir Putin that he would be tougher than former President Barack Obama on the issue of Ukraine, as the two leaders spoke on a video call on Tuesday.

After the meeting, Biden’s national security advisor Jake Sullivan said the president warned Putin not to repeat his incursion into Ukrainian territory after he annexed Crimea in 2014 when Obama was president and Biden was vice president.

The moment was tense.

“I will look you in the eye and tell you, as President Biden looked President Putin in the eye and told him today, that things we did not do in 2014 we are prepared to do now,” Sullivan told reporters at the daily press briefing.

Sullivan said Biden would deploy “clear and decisive” actions, including economic sanctions to punish Russia if they invaded Ukraine.

“The measures we have put on the table are designed to show the Russian government that should it choose to engage in such an invasion, there will be those consequences,” he said.
Biden’s staff did not permit journalists to witness the beginning of the video call between the two leaders or take pictures of the event, but they issued a readout afterward.

Of course, the Biden administration has been a largely ineffectual group on issues ranging from the border to the economy, so there’s no telling how seriously Putin has considered the threat.
