Hillary Can't Type: Look To Huma's and Cheryl's Emails; See 2016 Buzz

Don't expect a gold mine of emails on Hillary's private account. Why not? Because
she doesn't know how to type. That's right. She writes everything out in longhand.
Really. Anyone who has spent time in meetings with her knows about her endless
So her emails will most likely turn out to be very short and quick. She wouldn't
spend a lot of time pecking out long letters. No way. That's why the Benghazi
Committee needs to also look very closely at the emails on private accounts that
Hillary's closest aides, Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills, maintained. Anything more
than a few lines were most likely written by someone else on her behalf. There's a
reason why Hillary set up and used private emails with them for official business:
all the important emails were likely written by her staff. Without access to them,
we won't know what was going on.
The Clintons never used the White House computer for their own work. Hillary even
wrote (or copied) her book manuscripts in long hand. Although ghost writer Barbara
Fineman was paid $120,000 for writing It Takes A Village, she proudly waved hundreds
of hand-written pages on yellow legal pads to pretend she wrote it all herself. She
never acknowledged Fineman's work.
Bill can't type either. When I wrote his 1995 State of the Union Speech, I typed it
on an IBM Selectric that the White House dug up from the basement. He told me that
he didn't want me to put it in the official computer system, because then his staff
would see it.
So, he carefully copied every word in his distinctive left hand penmanship. I still
have a copy of it. Then he pretended that he had written it himself.
The Clintons have figured out every which way to avoid disclosure of what they want
to keep private. So don't expect a smoking gun in Hillary's emails.
Look, instead, to Huma, Cheryl, Jake Sullivan, and Philippe Reines -- if they still

HERE'S EXACTLY WHY HILLARY KEPT SECRET EMAIL ACCOUNTS IN HER HOUSE: SEE HOW JUSTICE
DEPT. DEFENDS IN COURT

If there is actually anyone on the planet who has any doubts about why Hillary kept
a secret email server in her Chappaqua house, guarded by the Secret Service, a quick
look at the Justice Department's response to Judicial Watch's Freedom of Information
request for Hillary's emails will clear things up. You can read it here:http://list.dickmorris.com/t/687253/613051/7757/2/
Judicial Watch wants emails related to the Iran sanctions. In defending the State
Department for failing to produce and records and not disposing Hillary's secret
emails, the Justice Department makes the case that any documents that are not under
their control are not covered by the Freedom of Information Act and, therefore, the
State Department has no obligation to search them. Since Hillary -- and not the
State Department -- controlled them, they have no obligation to do anything with
The government relied on a U.S. Supreme Court case against Hillary's newest pal,
Henry Kissinger. Kissinger had his secretaries listen in to all of his phone calls
and take notes.
Hillary knew that would be their response and that's precisely why she went to the
trouble and expense of creating her own server. The notoriously cheap Clintons,
used to the government and rich friends paying their tabs, made a point of leaking
that President Clinton paid for the server. That's a first. But it's important
because, presumably, if the Government paid for it, they could assert control.
Hillary and her lawyers thought of everything. And now the Justice Department is
following the script that Hillary anticipated when she set up the secret system in
2009 just before she was sworn in as Secretary of State. She wasn't taking any
chances that some government document could undermine her anticipated presidential
And so far, it's working. Here's what the Justice Department argued to the court:
"FOIA creates no obligation for an agency to search for and produce records that it
does not possess and control. See Kissinger v. Reporters Comm. for Freedom of the
Press, 445 U.S. 136, 152, 154-55 (1980); Nat'l Sec. Archive v. Archivist of the
U.S., 909 F.2d 541, 545 (D.C. Cir. 1990); Competitive Enterprise Institute v. Office
of Science and Technology Policy, ___ F. Supp. 2d ___, 2015 WL 967549, at *4-5
(D.D.C. Mar. 3, 2015). It certainly provides no basis for a court to issue a
subpoena for such documents." (Emphasis added.)
That's what Hillary is counting on.
But now the State Department has the emails that Hillary hand-picked to turn over.
So, it's hard to argue that they don't have to search at least those documents.
Instead, they want to be able to post them all on a web site. Why? That way we
will be the ones who have to search through 55,000 pages, not them. If they were
required to comply with FOI, they would have to identify the responsive documents.
Oh, and by the way, Hillary's decision to hand over hard copies, instead of
electronic files was another ploy to make searching the documents more difficult.
There's no way to do a word search on manual documents. She's not going to make
this one easy. It's typical Hillary -- hide, obfuscate, delay, stretch the legal
boundaries while screaming about the rights to keep private emails about your
The government's reliance on the Kissinger case is interesting. Although the
Supreme Court recognized that transcripts of Kissinger's phone calls were official
records that were wrongfully removed, it found that only government agencies -- and
not the press or individuals -- could sue for their return. Kissinger had taken the
transcripts from the State Department and placed them in a safe on the estate of
Nelson Rockefeller. (Conspiracy theorists, take note). Eventually, he gave them to
the Library of Congress, which is not covered by the Freedom of Information Act. He
signed an agreement barring public access until either 25 years after the donation
or 5 years after his death -- whatever is later. But just recently, Kissinger
agreed that the transcripts and other papers of his can be made public. Even
Kissinger finally came around to recognize the public's right to documents created
in the course of official government business. Hillary should follow in his
Things are definitely heating up, but it's just the beginning. Judicial Watch also
requested access to Hillary's server. Last week, the Benghazi Committee subpoenaed
the server. There are multiple pending Freedom of Information requests for her
emails, And the Benghazi Committee is looking at other people's emails, too -- like
Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin. Stay tuned.
