Memo Confirms Foreign Actors Hacked Hillary’s Server
A newly released memo exchange between two Republican-led House Committees and the FBI revealed that “foreign actors” had gained illegal access to Hillary Clinton’s emails, reports Hannity.com. The new information raises more questions about the legality of her use of a private server during her tenure at the State Department.
The memo, obtained by Fox News, originated in the House Judiciary and Oversight Committee, outlines how “foreign actors obtained access” to Hillary’s emails, including some material classified as “secret.”
The memo states: “Documents provided to the Committees show foreign actors obtained access to some of Mrs. Clinton’s emails – including at least one email classified ‘Secret.’”
“The memo does not say who the foreign actors are, or what material was obtained, but it notes that secret information is defined as information that, if disclosed, could ‘reasonably be expected to cause serious damage to the national security,’” writes Fox News.
Lawmakers have renewed interest in whether or not the DOJ and FBI properly analyzed and interpreted the law surrounding Clinton’s mishandling of classified information.
“Officials from both agencies have created a perception they misinterpreted the Espionage Act by stating Secretary Clinton lacked the requisite ‘intent’ for charges to be filed,” the memo says, before pointing to statements by Comey that indicated a belief that intent was required — which the memo says ignored “meaningful aspects” of the law. If it is shown that intent is not a pre-requisite Clinton may face a significantly more formidable legal challenge.
The committees’ memo also says it appears the outcome of the investigation was “predetermined” in May, two months before Comey’s press conference and before multiple interviews had taken place.
