The FBI Reported how, in the ten below listed ways, Hillary Clinton’s used her Unclassified E-mail server to repeatedly receive and transmit highly classified messages in violation of US Government National Security and Federal Regulations for handling those messages. When Hillary was appointed as Secretary of State, two FBI Agents sat with her for 2 hours and went through all the National Security Regulations, on how she would be required to handle classified material, including Confidential, Secret, Top Secret, and SCI compartmented information. Following that briefing, the FBI Agents required Hillary to read, then sign a document under penalty of perjury, that she fully understood her responsibility for handling classified material.
Hillary Clinton was never authorized to conduct State Department business on her private Unclassified server located in her bathroom in her home. Hillary would have been required to solicit and gain approval from the US Government if she wanted to conduct official business on the E-mail server in her home. She violated National Security Regulations for failing to request permission to use a private Unclassified server in her home, and ignored previous instructions on how to handle classified information, because she knew that her request to employ a private server in her home would have been disapproved.
When the FBI asked Hillary why she deleted 33,000 messages that were the property of the Federal Government, she repeated 37 times that she couldn’t remember. The FBI has since recovered 17,000+ of messages that Hillary refused to give to the State Department Inspector General; 30 of them discussed events around the preplanned commando attack by 125 Radical Ialamic Terrorists on the US Mission in Benghazi and the murder of 4 Americans.
Over a four year period, “over and over again,” with blantat and complete disregard for the legal procedures for handling classified material, Hillary transmitted more than one thousand highly classified E-mails, some of which were so sensitive and so highly classified, that even members of Congress will “never” be permitted to ever view their content.
When the FBI asked Hillary why she transmitted messages on an Unclassified server that had “C” next to the paragraphs, she said she didn’t know what “C” meant, but thought it might have had something to do with alphabetical order (after handling highly classified messages as a Senator and the Secretary of State for over 10 years, and after her briefing by two FBI Agents on the proper handling of classified material, Hillary’s response was either evidence that she is stupid, or that she was telling another lie).
Hillary Clinton also ignored the US Government Regulations warning all US diplomats not to use mobile devices for official business. The FBI reported: “Clinton and her immediate staff were notified of foreign travel risks, and were warned that digital threats begin immediately upon landing in a foreign country, since connections of a mobile device to a local network provides opportunities for foreign adversaries to intercept voice and E-mail transmissions.” For over 4 years, Hillary Clinton and her immediate staff, ignored and violated those warnings on the use of mobile devices when they traveled to foreign countries.
Obama compromised the objectivity of the IRS, when he used his appointees at the IRS to restrict the ability of Conservative Organizations to obtain a tax IDs from the IRS, which is required for them to participate in national elections. The IRS Director is now undergoing Impeachment Proceedings in the House of Representatives, because he tried to cover up the IRS political actions to prevent Conservative Americans from participating in national elections, in violation of the US Constitution.
Most recently the Director of the FBI failed to recommend prosecution of Hillary Clinton for her violation in handling classified material for four years; many military personnel have been convicted of, and are now serving jail sentences for lesser violations. Late this past Friday afternoon, just prior to the long Labor Day weekend, the FBI released the below listed information about Hillary's violations in handling classified material. That is the same method of information release that politicians have used in the past, when they were trying to minimize the effect that the release of specific information would have on the ability of the American citizens to receive and assimilate the information the politician was trying to hide from the majority of the American people. Obama not only compromised the objectivity of the IRS, but he has also now compromised the stellar objectivity of the FBI by interjecting politics into both agencies.
American citizens would certainly embrace a female President with a reputation for honesty, verasity, and competence, someone like former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher of England. Hillary has proved to be so inept and so corrupt at properly handling classified material, that her previous handling of America’s secrets has been detrimental to the National Security of the United States. She was so flagrant in her disregard for National Security Regualtions, that she should never be permitted to hold a governement position again. If Hillary applied for employment with the FBI today, due to her previous handling of classified material, she would not be able to otain a security clearance.
Hillary Clinton was fired by the Democrat Congressional Counsel during the Nixon Impeachment Hearing for repeatedly misrepresenting facts to him, and her inability to tell the truth has not changed for 40 years. Please read the below list of the FBI’s findings!!

- SEPTEMBER 02 2016 -
THE TOP TEN VIOLATIONS OF NATIONAL SECURITY REGULATIONS BY HILLARY CLINTON, AS OUTLINED IN THE FBI REPORT ON HER E-MAILS
The FBI Reported Ten Different Violation of the Handling of Classified Messages by Hillary Clinton’s Private Email System. Hillary’s Repeated Violations, Over a Four year Period, Demonstrated Her Blatant Disregard For The US Government’s Classification System
DISCOVERY ONE: Clinton Deleted Her Private Email Archive “A Few Weeks After The New York Times Disclosed” The Private Server.Viser Tweet: “A few weeks after the NYT disclosed that Hillary Clinton had a private email account, her archive inbox was deleted.” The automatic shredding began for 33,000 messages.(Twitter.com, 9/2/16)
DISCOVERY TWO: Clinton demonstrated her incompetence by stating she did not Know the (C) Mark Meant Confidential, And Did Not “Pay Attention To Diff Classification Levels.” Hillary couldn’t recognize what documents should be protected; like E-mails regarding highly sensitive specific drone strikes, and sent them over her private Unclassified server.. Hillary also claimed she didn’t know how document classifications worked; even a private in the Marine Corps knows the difference between Confidential, Secret, and Top Secret. Seitz-Wald Tweet: “Clinton said she didn't know what (c) mark meant, didn't pay attention to different classification levels, treated all srsly.” (Twitter.com, 9/2/16)
DISCOVERY THREE: “In addition to the 33,000 E-mails Hillary destroyed, there were 17,448 additional work-related E-mails that Clinton h id and refused to Turn Over To The State Department Inspector General, including 30 on the Battle of Benghazi---she lied to Congress and said she turned all of them over.” (Twitter.com, 9/2/16)
DISCOVERY FOUR: As Secretary Of State Clinton “Had 13 Mobile Devices And 5 iPads” That she transmitted to her Unclassified E-mail, server. Hillary lied again to Congress to and said she only had one. Viser Tweet: “Hillary Clinton, who said she had her private email for convenience, had 13 mobile devices and 5 iPads, according to FBI.” (Twitter.com, 9/2/16)
DISCOVERY FIVE: Clinton’s Lawyers Could Not Locate The 13 Mobile Devices With Her Email Address, Hillary said she repeatedly loast them, and they all had Secret and Top Secret messages on them--------another Hillary’s many lies. Viser Tweet: ‘FBI found 13 total mobile devices associated with Clinton’s 2 phone numbers. Her lawyers couldn’t locate the devices” (Twitter.com, 9/2/16)
DISCOVERY SIX: “The FBI Determined That Clinton Brought Her Blackberry Into A Secure Area At the State Department, Which Is Prohibited by National Security Regulations.” Those devices are supposed to be left in a container outside of a Skiff or outside a classified area (Twitter.com, 9/2/16)
DISCOVERY SEVEN: Clinton’s Email Archive Was Transferred Onto A Personal Gmail Address To Help Archive The Records; it was done with a personal unclassified personal G-mail account which is a violation of National Security Regulations. Zapotosky Tweet: “In 2014, in an effort to transfer an archive of Clinton emails from a laptop onto a server, someone used a personal Gmail address to help” (Twitter.com, 9/2/16)
DISCOVERY EIGHT: Clinton said she Deleted 30,000 of Her Emails Because She said she Thought “She Didn't Need Them Anymore, subsequently it was determined 33,000+ messages were not deleted, they were scrubbed clean by Clinton which is a violation of US Federal Law---those E-mails belonged to the US State Department.”Cilizza Tweet: ‘Clinton told the FBI she deleted her emails because she didn't need them anymore not to avoid FOIA”(Twitter.com, 9/2/16)
DISCOVERY NINE: Hillary was terrified that she had been hacked; she had received a variety of phishing E-mails, including porn solicitations. They knew that someone Tried To Hack Into Clinton’s iCloud Account; others including Wiki Leak and a Russian based hacker say they had actually hacked into Hillary’s Unclassified server. Messages on her Unclassified server gave away the location of the US Ambassador to Libya on 9/11, and revealed for all practical purposes there was absolutely “No Security” at the US Mission in Benghazi where Ambassador Stevens, was captured, tortured with a cattle probe, and murdered---it also revealed that the inept Libyan guards hired by the State Department to protect the US Mission in Benghazi didn’t even have bullets in their weapons. Viser Tweet: “The FBI found that someone was trying to hack into Hillary Clinton’s iCloud account. They were unsuccessful.” (Twitter.com, 9/2/16)
DISCOVERY TEN: “Hillary Clinton Sent Out An Email To All State Employees Warning Them Against Using Personal Email Addresses”-----She should be charged with the violation of National Security Regulations, and has no business getting within 1000 yards of the Oval Office or any classified messages (Twitter.com, 9/2/16)
BONUS DISCOVERY: “The Phrase ‘Could Not Recall’ Or ‘Did Not Recall’ Appears 37 Times In Hillary Clinton FBI Interview Transcript.”(Twitter.com, 9/2/16)

By Capt Joseph R. John, August 22, 2016
The below listed UCLA/LA Times poll, which began on July 4, 2016, the results of which is the type of information that the left of center liberal media establishment doesn’t want American voters to see. That poll reveals the naked truth about the true standing of the presidential race between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
In that poll, Hillary is losing despite the fact that her campaign has been spending hundreds of millions of dollars on TV ads attacking Donald Trump in key battle ground states. In this particular poll Donald Trump has a 2% lead over Hillary (he is not losing by between 8-10% reported daily by the liberal press). Donald Trump has not spent one cent on TV ads in key battleground states. The dishonest left of center liberal media establishment has consistently refused to report the results of the below listed poll since July 4th, 2016 to the American voters.
Donald Trump’s support from Black Americans rose to 12.8%, and his support from Hispanic Americans rose to 36.5%---more of a percentage of support by minorities than either Mitt Romney or John McCain received during their respective presidential bids. At this same period in August 1988 in the Vice President George Bush versus Gov Michael Dukakis presidential race, Vice President Bush was down by 16 percent, but he subsequently won the election in November with 53% of the vote.
The Republican Political Ruling Class has been violating President Reagan’s rule, “Do not to speak ill of another Republican.” Their vocal criticism lays bare their fear that if Donald Trump is elected, he would destroy their cozy relationship with the Democrat Political Ruling Class, and with K Street lobbyists, who have been betraying the American people for the last 8 years---Washington DC needs a wrecking ball to shatter the rampant corruption.
The American liberal press, TV Networks, Hollywood leftists, and a relatively small, but vocal, number of Never Trump Republicans, by repeatedly attacking Donald Trump, continue to violate President Reagan’s rule, are actually supporting Hillary’s election, by trying to undercut Mr. Trump’s appeal.
The press continues to cover up every one of Hillary's repeated violations of National Security Regulations over a 4 year period where over 1000 classified messages were transmitted on a unclassified server, while over the years enlisted military personnel who didn’t have the support of a dishonest Attorney General protecting them, went to jail for violating National Security Regulations; in some cases, for violating rules for just one classified message-----not for destroying 33,000 messages.
The press has been covering up Hillary’s illegal destruction of 33,000 messages that were transmitted on her unauthorized and unclassified server in her home, which foreign governments and WikiLeaks have hacked—some of those messages are so highly classified that the Congress and the American people will never know what was in them.
For 4 years the dishonest press has covered up Hillary’s personal responsibility for refusing to provide adequate security for the US Mission in Benghazi, despite the fact that the US Ambassador pleaded directly to Hillary 6 times, for adequate security saying his life was being targeted. Hillary’s repeated refusals led directly to the death of 4 Americans in Benghazi. Then she flagrantly lied to the nation and to the families of those 4 dead Americans by saying a YouTube video was responsible for a demonstration that went bad, even though she knew the attack on the US Mission was a planned commando attack by over 125 Radical Islamic Terrorists.
The most damaging action against the United States that Hillary took while she was Secretary of State, was to provide her signature approval to give Putin’s Russian Nuclear Energy Agencies control of an American company, Uranium One, and with it, 20% of all of the United States Uranium reserves.
While she was Secretary of State, Hillary’s criminal money laundering operation, funneling hundreds of millions of dollars in donations from foreign government and foreign companies into a Canadian off shore bank; some of those funds were subsequently funneled into the Clinton Foundation US accounts; it was reported that only 4% of those funds ever went to charities.
If Hillary were ever elected, she professes on the stump, that she would continue Obama’s destructive and anti-American policies – the same disastrous policies that have brought in over 900,000 Muslim refugees from the Middle East and resettled them in 185 cities without letting the FBI vet them to determine if they have terrorist ties, and would also continue Obama’s tax and spend policies that are aimed at destroying the Free Enterprise System that built the most effective economic engine in the history of mankind. These policies increased the threat of terrorism in the homeland where there have already been 86 terrorist attacks by Radical Islamic Terrorist on Obama’s watch that the press continues to covers up, where the FBI now has over 1000 ISIS terrorist investigations underway in all 50 states. Hillary further professes to continue to use Common Core to force feed Socialism into the fabric of the education of our youth in undergraduate education, continue the division and murderous conflict along racial lines that America hasn’t seen since the early 1950s, maintain a constant flood of illegal aliens to enter the US through the wide open southern border, and bring in hundreds of thousands of unassimilable Muslim refugees into the American homeland from the most radical places on earth.
The Republican leadership in Congress, by their legislative action and failure to act, have revealed their true colors over the last 8 years. They’ve demonstrated that they are only doing what is in their best interest, not what is in the best interest of the American people. They have voted to allow the national debt to rise $20 trillion, sat on their hands while Obama hallowed out the US military, provided federal funding for over 300 lawless sanctuary cities that disobey federal laws, refused to use the power of the purse to stop Obama’s lawless immigrations policies, allowed the Department of Health and Human Services to threaten to withhold education funding to all 50 states if they don’t employ their Common Core Curriculum to indoctrinate America’s youth in Socialism, and for 8 years have refused to pass legislature to close the wide open southern border through which drugs, illegal aliens, and terrorist freely enter.
For 8 years the Republican leadership in Congress has not only betrayed the Republicans who put them in office, they repeatedly betrayed the Republican Conservative Caucus in Congress by working against them, and sided with Democrats on the other side of the aisle in order to frustrate hundreds of Conservative Congressmen to pass legislature that is not in the best interest of the American Free Enterprise System, nor in the best interest of American citizens.
The Republican Party will never be the same after this election, and Senator Ted Cruz, Senator Lindsey Graham, Gov John Kasich, Gov Jeb Bush, and Gov Mitt Romney have forever destroyed any presidential ambitions they may still have.

THE SHOCK POLL MEDIA DOESN'T WANT YOU TO SEE?
USC/L.A. Times shows Trump up in latest, but you've got to find results yourself
WASHINGTON – Every day the USC/L.A. Times poll asks a portion of 3,000 U.S. citizens randomly recruited from across all households and demographic groups how they view the presidential race.
The polls began July 4 and will run through the election.
The pollsters must have gotten a shock this weekend.
Their results show Donald Trump in the lead by two points.
So how did the news team report it?
You have to look at the poll results for yourself to see the findings and understand them.
In news parlance, it’s called burying the lead – considered a cardinal sin in the business.
But it’s there as plain as day, in answer to the key question, “Who would you vote for?”
Despite the glee the media have reporting daily for the last few weeks that Hillary Clinton is winning by 8-10 points, this polls shows Trump edging Clinton 44.2 percent to 43.6 percent – a statistical tie within the margin of error. But is that not news?
Not to the L.A. Times and not to any other major media outlet apparently.
Doesn’t fit the narrative.
If it hadn’t been for the Drudge Report spotting the shocker, it might have remained a deep, dark secret.
Instead of reporting that a man just bit a dog, the L.A. Times analysis story is headlined: “New poll analysis finds a wasted summer for Donald Trump and a boost for Hillary Clinton.”
The poll also shows Trump jump from 1 percent of the black vote to 12.8 percent, just after he began wooing black voters last weekend. Clinton dives to 82.9 percent from a high of 90.
Among Hispanics, Trump also gained ground, rising to 36.5 percent – more than received by either Mitt Romney or John McCain in their respective presidential bids.
Trump also has a higher lead among men than Clinton has with women.
Yet, apparently, persuaded by media reports, voters overwhelmingly think Clinton will win – 54.3 percent to 39.9.
Another new poll, this one by the Pew Research Center, shows Trump narrowing the gap with Clinton to 4 percent – with Clinton at 41 percent and Trump at 37 percent. The Libertarian Party candidate, Gary Johnson, and the Green party candidate, Jill Stein, each scored just over 4 percent each, the survey found.

By Capt Joseph R. John, August 8, 2016
The Obama administration summarily removed General David Petraeus as Director of the CIA for doing 1/1000th of what Hillary did, when she transmitted 33,000 E-mails on an unclassified server, in violation of the National Security Act. General Petraeus knew too much about how Hillary turned down US Ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens' 12 direct and urgent requests, personally to Hillary, desperately asking for additional security for the US Mission in Benghazi over a 5 ½ month period, which she turned down or ignored.
Despite over 600 requests from multiple US Agencies and the US Military to increase additional security, Hillary turned down every request, dooming 4 Americans to their deaths in Benghazi. The Occupant of the Oval Office completed the betrayal by refusing to authorize “Cross Border Authority” so a 130 man USMC Fast Team in Sigonella, Italy, 377 miles away (1 hr and 50 min away), and 2 fully armed F-16Cs on the tarmac in Aviano, Italy, 1044 miles away (2hrs and 30 min away) could be dispatched to save the lives of Americans under attack by over 125 Radical Islamic Terrorists in Benghazi for 13 hours. The betrayal doomed the life of the US Ambassador to Libya, two Navy SEALs, and a Communications Specialist to be murdered----Mike Morell was an integral part of the Obama and Hillary Whitewash and cover up as follows:
On September 12, 2011, CIA Officer Hunter Stevens, the Libyan Embassy Station Chief in Tripoli, Libya, submitted his official report on the attack on the US Mission in Benghazi to his superiors in CIA Headquarters in Langley, Virginia. Since General Petraeus had been summarily relieved by Obama, the report was delivered to Mike Morrell, Obama’s newly appointed Acting CIA Director---Morell would ultimately disgrace himself, and betray 57 years of honorable service by the men and women of the CIA.
What every American should know, is that the CIA Station Chief’s Report is inviolate and “NO ONE” is authorized to change its content!!! The only duty for the CIA Station Chief is to report “facts” as they occur. It is not the responsibility of the CIA to develop “talking points” for political hacks like Susan Rice who lie to 5 Networks about the premediated attack by Radical Islamic Terrorists. In the continuing narrative, Morell compromised the good work of the CIA by developing talking point and altering the CIA Station Chief’s Report.
CIA Station Chief Hunter Stevens’ report stated: There was “No” demonstration in Benghazi in response to a YouTube video.
Mike Morrell made a massive edit to the CIA Station Chief’s Report, without authority and in violation of CIA Regulations, in order to make it fit the “UNTRUTHFUL” narrative that a YouTube video was responsible for a demonstration that went bad-----no one ever saw that YouTube video anywhere in Libya.
Mike Morrell changed the word “Terrorist” in the CIA Station Chief’s report to “Demonstrators” throughout.
Mike Morrell removed all references to “Al Q’ieda” from the CIA Station Chief’s Report.
Mike Morrell remove the phrase from the CIA Station Chief’s Report: “Attackers were not an escalation of a demonstration.”
However, despite Mike Morrell’s attempt to “illegally” sanitize the CIA Station’s Chief’s Report to fit Hillary’s and Obama’s narrative, it was considered unsuitable when they first saw Morell’s edits, and the doctored CIA Report was returned to Mike Morrell for more edits, it could not be released to the press and public in its current doctored form.
Because the CIA Station Chief’s Report inferred the CIA had warned the State Department about an attack on the US Mission in Benghazi, on Hilary’s orders, the State Department had Mike Morrell use his heavy hand to eliminate that information from the CIA Station Chief’s Report.
Mike Morrell then told Jake Sullivan, Hillary’s Chief of Staff at the State Department, he would be happy to develop appropriate “talking points” for release to support Hillary’s desired narrative. He then did in fact participate in developing the lies that Susan Rice delivered on 5 Sunday TV Network News broadcasts.
Back at CIA Headquarters in Langley, not only did Mike Morrell discount the CIA Station Chief’s Report, Morrell also refused to consider the reports of 32 Americans employed by the CIA and the State Department who were on the ground and witnessed the Benghazi attack first hand. Instead Mike Morrell relied on the advice of a CIA Analyst in a Washington, DC Office who wasn’t in Benghazi and didn’t witness the attack. Powerful forces behind the scenes in the Obama administration had been muzzling the 32 witnesses who witnessed the attack.
When US Senators heard how Morell altered the CIA Station Chief’s Report, they summoned him to a Senate hearing. Morell told the Senators, that the FBI made the above listed alterations to the CIA Station Chief’s Report. Throughout his testimony to the Senators, Morell repeatedly lied and perjured himself in his Congressional testimony, and should have been charged, convicted, and jailed.
Mike Morrell refused to allow the CIA to do an Internal Investigation about the Benghazi attack on the US Mission, which is not only highly irregular, it is a flagrant attempt to Whitewash and cover-up what actually led up to the attack and occurred during the attack.
When the FBI was informed by US Senators that Morell accused them of altering the CIA Station Chief’s report, the leaders at FBI Headquarters in Washington, DC were furious and confronted Morell. Morrell quickly backed down, and admitted he made the illegal alterations to the CIA Station Chief’s Report.
Mike Morrell is now being paid a lucrative salary at Beacon Global Strategies, LLC, working for Philippie Raines, who was the Senior Advisor to Hillary when she was sworn in as Secretary of State. Raines is the founder of Beacon Global Strategies, LLC---they are the Clinton Gatekeepers.
Now the left of center liberal media establishment is making press releases, proudly proclaiming that the “liar” and “traitor” Mike Morrell endorsed Hillary, as if it is a badge of honor and that Morell’s endorsement somehow gives Hillary’s campaign credibility. Those press releases this weekend, just confirms that Mike Morell was involved in the cover up and Whitewash of the Battle of Benghazi from the very beginning. The below listed articles comments on Morrell’s dishonesty.

Ex-CIA Spook Who Whitewashed Benghazi Endorses Hillary
August 6, 2016/2 Comments/in Featured, News /by Kenneth R. Timmerman
Hillary has become a spook’s candidate. Former Deputy CIA Director Michael Morell, who so conveniently covered her tracks in Benghazi, has now confirmed it.
In a glowing endorsement his friends at The New York Times prominently featured Friday, Morell gave his full-throated support to Clinton, while insisting that he was no partisan and had even voted Republican in the past.
Like an obedient party hack vying for a new job, Morell spouted the party line that Donald Trump was “not only unqualified for the job, but he may well pose a threat to our national security.”
Those are strong words, especially coming from someone who we are led to believe is an unimpeachable source. But is he?
The “non-partisan” Morell was caught “mis-speaking” to Congress about his role in sanitizing the infamous CIA talking points prepared for US Ambassador Susan Rice to deliver on the talk shows after the Benghazi attacks. And when he was caught out, like a faithful soldier, he fell on his sword.

Combat Veterans For Congress-----Embedded Integrity
The Combat Veterans For Congress PAC is endorsing the 109th Combat Veteran For Congress in 8 years; he is a fiscally conservative candidate who will work to rein in the out of control spending by irresponsible members of Congress, reduce taxes, reduce the national debt, rebuild the strength of the US military, support the freedom & independence of the individual, protect & support the 2nd Amendment, secure the borders, reform the VA, defeat ISIS & Al Q’ieda, repeal & replace Obama Care, and will work toward unleashing the private sector to create jobs, and stimulate private sector business investment once again. SSgt Brian J. Mast, USA (Ret) (Ranger) (EOD) of Fort Pierce, Florida who served in the US Army for 12 years, until he was medically retired as Wounded Warrior double amputee, is running in the 18th Congressional District of Florida, for Congressman Patrick Murphy (D-FL-18) seat. Cong Murphy has chosen not to seek re-election, but instead is seeking election to the US Senate from Florida.
Brian Mast was born on July 10, 1980 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Brian’s father served in the US Army during the Korean War in a Nike Missile Battalion in Illinois, and Brian followed in his father’s footsteps, who set an example for him to love and respect his country and motivated him to “Never Give Up.” Brian was raised in Grand Rapids and graduated from South Christian High School, in the suburbs of Grand Rapids in June 1999. In May 2016, Brian graduated from Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts with a Bachelor of Arts Degree concentrated in Economics with minors in Government and Environmental Studies.
On May 23, 2000, Brian Mast was sworn into the US Army at the US Army Induction Center in Lansing, Michigan. Recruit Brian Mast immediately reported for basic training at Fort Leonard Wood in Missouri. Following boot camp, PVT Mast reported to the 841st Combat Engineering Battalion at Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where he was mobilized as part of the Global War on Terror 2003.
In January 2007, Specialist Mast went through Infantry and Airborne Training at Fort Benning, GA and was promoted to Sergeant, and continued on to Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Training at Elgin Air Force Base where he was awarded the EOD Badge. Sergeant Mast then reported to a newly created Special Operations EOD Company, under the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) at Fort Bragg, NC. In March 2009, Sgt Mast was promoted to Staff Sergeant.
In July 2010 SSgt Mast deployed to Kandahar, Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom and reported to JSOC in the 75th Ranger Regiment. The unit worked only under cover of darkness, going after specific Taliban targets with the mission of eliminating or capturing a specific high priority target. Working under JSOC meant fighting at the tip of the spear in the ongoing war against Radical Islamic terrorism. As a bomb technician, in this high level of special operations came with a great deal of responsibility. SSgt Mast’s task was to protect his fellow soldiers from the war’s most deadly weapon, the Improvised Explosive Device (IED). This meant placing himself directly in the line of fire on each and every mission. In the course or those combat missions, SSgt Mast was able to detect and destroy many IEDs.
On September 19, 2010, SSgt Mast uncovered an IED, while in the process of disarming it, the IED detonated resulting in sustained catastrophic injuries, including the loss of both of SSgt Mast’s legs. After sustaining such severe injuries in the detonation of that IED, SSgt Mast was transferred to Walter Reed Medical Center in Washington, DC and was specifically assigned to JSOC until his Medical Retirement from the US Army on June 19, 2012.

Over the last year, Hillary repeatedly lied to Congress while under oath, lied in her response to questions during Presidential debates, lied during interviews with news media, and lied to the American people on how she handled Secret, Top Secret, and Sensitive Compartmented E-mails that were transmitted and received on the unclassified private E-mail server in the basement of her home.
Hillary Clinton also lied in her testimony while under oath to Congress, about the “Radical Islamic Terrorists “ who attacked on the US Mission in Benghazi, Libya. She also lied to the families of the 4 dead Americans who were killed in Benghazi, within close proximity to their American Flag draped caskets, immediately after their bodies arrived at the Delaware US Air Force Base. She also repeatedly lied to the American people and the news media when she said the attack on the US Mission in Benghazi was the result of a demonstration against a YouTube video that went bad, while on the night of the attack, she told her daughter that the attack was conducted by an Al Q’ieda type terrorist group.
After many years as a practicing attorney, 8 years as a US Senator, 4 years as the Secretary of State, Hillary had been repeatedly briefed and required to execute proof of her understanding, under penalty of perjury, on how to handle classified material. Hillary very well knew that in transmitting and receiving classified E-mails on an unclassified server, that she was violating US Federal Laws.
In his testimony before Congress, the FBI Director alleged Hillary Clinton did not know what she was doing when she was violating Federal Laws. If that is true, it goes to her lack of “competence” and further demonstrates that she is “incompetent” to ever be trusted to handle classified material again.
FBI Director Comey told the American people that the FBI did a “comprehensive” investigation of whether Hillary Clinton violated US Federal Laws. He said Hillary had “No Intent”, even though he knew she repeatedly lied while she was under oath in her sworn testimony to Congress on her handling of classified material. By lying to Congress under oath, she perjured herself, which was evidence of her “Intent” to mislead and deceive Congress about the details of how she received and transmitted Secret, Top Secret and Sensitive Compartmented E-mails on the unclassified server in the basement of her home.
Most Americans fully understand that perjury in testimony before Congress, while under oath, is a federal crime.
Hillary's interview by the FBI was not conducted in the same manner that all other suspects in a criminal case are interviewed. FBI Director Comey not only did not attend the 3 ½ half hour (very short) interview of Hillary Clinton, but incredulously, he did not ensure she was put “Under Oath,” did not ensure the interview was “recorded,” and nor did he require to have a “transcript” taken of the interview for retention by the FBI. Before the FBI Director ruled against referring Hillary’s case for criminal prosecution, Director Comey did not even speak to the 5 or 6 FBI Agents who interviewed Hillary on a Saturday on the 4th of July weekend.
The FBI Director’s decision not to recommend the indictment of Hillary Clinton negatively affected the view of millions of Americans, who developed the impression that there is no equality in the “Rule of Law.” At a minimum, the way FBI Director Comey had the FBI handle the interview of Hillary Clinton also led the American people to believe there are two sets of rules for enforcing US Federal Laws. There is one for Hillary Clinton, and another for other Americans who have been previously prosecuted, convicted, and jailed for doing far less than what Hillary did, in their own handling classified material.
After the FBI Director Comey laid out the predicate on how Hillary repeatedly violated US Federal Laws over a 4 year period, then he drew an erroneous conclusion when he said “no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case” because she had no “Intent.” Hillary’s “Intent” was proven when she repeatedly lied to Congress, about how she was handling classified material. However, thousands of Americans are currently serving prison sentences for mishandling classified material, and in many of their cases, “Intent” was never proven. “Intent” is not required to convict someone for violating Federal Laws governing the handling of classified material.
Hillary Clinton and her staff, who were involved in improperly handling extremely sensitive compartmented E-mails (those E-mails are more highly classified than Top Secret), were incredibly reckless, and they should never be allowed to handle classified material again.
Hillary Clinton's case should have been referred to the Justice Department for indictment, so that the Justice Department could have referred the case to a Grand Jury in order to allow the Grand Jury to make the decision. If Hillary were a soldier in the US Army and had violated the handling of classified material, she would have lost her security clearance, would have been faced with crimial prosecution, and would have lost pay. Director Comey prosecuted and convicted members of the US Navy for mishandling classified material, without having to prove "Intent."
Yesterday the US Attorney General gave Hillary a pass on prosecution for her gross violation of mishandling classified material over a 4 year period, in violation of Federal Laws governing the handling of classified material. It was an extremely bad day for the American Justice System.

Federal Prosecutors, Law Enforcement Officers, and most clear thinking, law abiding citizens throughout the nation are concerned with the FBI Director’s decision to decision to summarily acquit Hillary Clinton. FBI Director James Comey stated that Hillary Clinton sent and received Secret, Top Secret, and Compartmented messages on her unclassified private E-mail server, and went on to say “we believe that hostile actors gained access to the private commercial E-mail accounts of people with whom Secretary Clinton was in regular contact from her personal account.” The FBI Director also stated that Hillary Clinton was “extremely careless” (another way of saying “grossly negligent”) in handling and transmitting very sensitive classified information.
Hillary violated US Federal Laws, violated National Security Statues, and put the National Security of the United States at risk; some of her staff handling the server and the messages didn’t have proper security clearances. Many of the 24 million Americans who served in the US Armed Forces and handled classified messages, would have been prosecuted if they illegally destroyed 30,000 messages, and transmitted & received 110 messages containing clearly marked classified information, from an unclassified server.
Hillary’s actions demonstrated “gross negligence”; “gross negligence” is a “felony.” Over a 4 year period, Hillary Clinton repeatedly violated federal statues governing the handling of over 100 Secret, Top Secret, and compartmented messages. The FBI could have easily met the standard to prosecute Hillary for her “negligence” in handling Secret, Top Secret, and Compartmented messages.
The central flaw in the acquittal of Hillary was “Intent.” Intent “does not” matter in US Federal Laws governing the handling of classified material. Thousands of Americans have been prosecuted for “mishandling” classified material—never having had “Intent.”
The FBI Director’s findings revealed that Hillary Clinton misled the American people over and over again. Director Comey contradicted Hillary repeated statements on national TV when she said that she never transmitted or received classified messages on the unclassified server in the basement of her home.
This final decision in the Case of Hillary Clinton brings into question the manner in which this case was resolved, brings into question the judgment of the FBI Director, and demonstrates to the American people that in the Obama administration there is “Not Equal Justice Under Law” because thousands of Americans have been convicted and sent to prison for doing much less than Hillary Clinton did.
A cautious FBI Director should have impaneled a Grand Jury, then he should have referred the findings of the investigation to the Grand Jury. Violation of the Federal Statues should have been considered by the Grand Jury, and the FBI Director should have announced the Grand Jury’s decision to the American people.
The decision by Director Comey to summarily acquit Hillary for her actions over a 4 year period in illegally destroying 30,000 messages, while transmitting and receiving over 110 messages containing clearly marked classified information, on an unclassified server in her home, was a miscarriage of justice that “Violated the Rule of Law.” Director Comey’s summarily acquittal of Hillary Clinton damaged the fine reputation of the FBI.
