Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, October 18, 2016

In a September 2015 interview with the FBI, a former agent who worked on the security details of both former secretaries of state Condoleezza Rice and Hillary Clinton complained of a "stark difference" between Rice and Clinton in terms of their adherence to security and diplomatic protocols.

According to newly released documents by the FBI related to its investigation into Clinton's use of a private email server while she was secretary, the former agent said that while Rice "observed strict adherence to State Department security and diplomatic protocols," Clinton "frequently and ‘blatantly' disregarded them."

The agent told the FBI that it is standard protocol for the secretary to ride in the same car as the local U.S. ambassador while traveling in countries abroad, and the protocol was for the secretary to arrive at diplomatic functions with the ambassador. Clinton, the agent said, "refused to do so," according to the FBI report, "instead choosing to be accompanied in the limousine by her Chief of Staff, Huma Abedin. This frequently resulted in complaints by ambassadors who were insulted and embarrassed by this breach of protocol."

This bruja, perra is undoubtedly the most evil person to ever serve in U.S. government. Not to mention she's as crooked as a dog's hind leg.

"In the course of the interview with the FBI, the former agent also accused Clinton and her staff of "removing lamps and furniture from the State Department which were transported to her residence in Washington, D.C." The agent did not know whether the items were returned once her tenure ended.

The release is part of its response to several Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests, and the FBI is making the documents public in the interest of transparency."

Comey's subordinates threatened to go public unless he included some of Hillary's violations in his public response.

Some... What's the chances these are the small things and the big stuff is being withheld?

If they're sitting on some of it, why not sit on all of it?

No surprise as rules, regulations and laws do not apply to such as obama, the clintons, and their elite friends.

CORKY, you have no idea what they will do.

What we DO have is FBI documents *proving* what Clinton did.

As far as releasing everything, I am not sure.

I could only guess that they releases some to calm the FBI staff that are upset with the corruption.

But they do not want to release everything as there are some real damaging findings.

Clinton violated protocol, ok. Rice ignored national security and let America be hit on 9-11 and said "no one could ever have thought terrorists would turn airliners into missiles." But she lied, lots of people had warned her about just that exact thing happening, the outgoing Clinton administration tried their best to warn the Bush administration about Al Quaeda, they didn't want to hear it. I'll take a Sec. of State who hurts a few feelings over a totally incompetent administration any day. We are still in Iraq because of the --** of the Bush administration.

It's always been the Clinton MO. Deny, deny, deny, deny, and the accusers go overboard speculating. Then when some info is released, the public says it wasn't as bad as thought. Once a threshold is established the really bad stuff seems tamer.
See, 'How to boil a Frog'.

FTA: They thought, said this agent, that she "traveled with hand-picked media who would present her in favorable light in order to garner political support," and that she "disregarded security and diplomatic protocols...in order to gain favorable press."

Sounds like she's doing her job.

Remember when Gorbachev stopped his motorcade to just shake hands with random Americans on the street? Security didn't like that either. But it was a brilliant media event. More importantly, it probably helped end the Cold War, by showing Gorbachev was a "man of the people" as it were.

Clinton is just a nasty person.

Normally, providing security for SoS is reserved for seasoned veterans as a reward as it's viewed as a prestigious assignment. All of the senior secret service agents for Clinton requested new assignments because she treats them horribly (apparently, nothing about her personality has mellowed over the years). Her secret service group is staffed by newbies.

Rice isn't running for office and likely wouldn't be elected if she were to. Is this what makes you feel good about voting for Hillary?

Thank you for this insight into your core level thinking. The rest of your posts make much more sense now.

Hillary's behavior had long indicated that she believes that rules are only for the commoners. This is why the media being in her back pocket is such a bad thing for us once she becomes president.

"traveled with hand-picked media who would present her in favorable light in order to garner political support,"

You used this quote in your 11 snoofy, as proof of doing her job. What that quote doesn't say is which media. Ours or the foreign locations. I'm thinking it's ours, and if so, it's not doing her job.

"We are still in Iraq because of the --** of the Bush administration."

Now, now, danni, you KNOW that Obama and his crew withdrew every one of the troops by December 2011. Consequently, your use of the word"still" isn't correct. Obama and his crew found that it was a mistake to do that and has sent troops back in so THIS one is on him. It was a mistake to go in and a much BIGGER mistake to withdraw all the troops. Just can't give Bush any kind of break, can you? Just like you can't give ANY democrat blame for anything. Your partisanship is apparent to the Nth degree.

"Deflect much?"

Every time, all the time. You know the two most important of danni's four tenets, right"
