What Nobody Is Talking About

BUT WHAT EVERYONE SHOULD WORRY ABOUT

A note from an anonymous journalist (the only kind who ever speaks critically of Hillary) to  Instapundit:

Hillary will be totally blackmail-able if elected. Here’s the logic:

1. It’s safe to say that there were things on that server which could cause Hillary tremendous harm politically – which is why she destroyed the evidence that would have been exculpatory if you believed her explanation. In my mind, it’s also why she used a private server to begin with.

2. She is lying about what was on that server, potentially to include while under oath in her upcoming congressional testimony.

3. If someone had all the copies of her emails and those of her staff, they could readily blackmail her because of the above. They’d have proof of her wrongdoing and her lying about it.

4. Hillary Clinton, as both a future Presidential candidate and a sitting Sec. of State would have been one of the Top 100 intelligence targets in the world and probably one of the top 10.

5. It’s thus certain that the Chinese and Russians would each have had a team focused on accessing her communications.

6. Every security expert I know of has said it’s a virtual certainty the Chinese and Russians both gained access to her server and all her emails. From what I know about their capabilities, I’d agree.

 

Go read the rest.

  1. Not good.

    Extend the logic, though.

    Assume the Chinese have read all politicians emails, not just Hillary's from her home brew, uncontrolled server.

    They can all then be blackmailed.

    I see no evidence that government email servers are any more secure, and significant evidence to the contrary.

    1. A very reasonable attitude. But what what makes Hillary Clinton so much more of a juicy target is point 4, combined with a frankly boneheaded decision to go with a private email server at all.

      Sure, government computers can be hacked, and probably are every day. But a public official on a private server not subject to oversight?

      Jackpot.

      1. Worse, by the reports they used the initial passkeys that were in the default package, they didn't even spring a couple hundred for new keys.

        Yeah, they were hacked in the first 15 minutes. But look on the bright side, at least the American Congress and the American Citizens will never, ever, ever, see those emails.

        Oh, and she got the film maker thrown back in jail for a year, so there's that.

      2. But she can just pay the blackmail (or perform the favor) and the America people don't get to know. So for her, sure, its all good. It's not like she's working for anyone's interest but her own.

      3. If it were kept on a gov server then EVERYBODY would know, not just the Russkies and the Chinese. And it's my next door neighbor she want's out of the loop.

  2. Ummmmm, how would our government act any differently from the way it currently does if it wasn't already being blackmailed?

    Another thing to consider: the most important thing for the long term successful survival of China is a healthy American economy. If China were to start blackmailing our government officials, wouldn't things actually improve?

  3. Related....Why isn't anyone asking about who might have been blackmailing Dennis Hastert all those years? Other than his victims, that is.....

    It sure would be interesting to know if he made any....um....inexplicable....deals with the democrats.

  4. Or this: How can she be trusted with the nuclear codes if she can't keep her e-mail out of the hands of Chinese and Russians? We fire and prosecute people who give classified documents away. Ask David Petraeus. Or Sandy Berger. From day one as Sec. of State, Hillary Clinton did the equivalent of posting classified material on Facebook. She also gave copies to her lawyer on a thumbdrive. If she was a spy, she could not hurt our government as much.

    1. No, she didn't.
      Honest.

      She ran out of space. She.. She had a disk crash. She didn't have enough money for antivirus. Her pantsuit went to the cleaners with a phone in it. A old friend with lots of money came in from out of town. Someone sniped at her. There were billing records in the bedroom. A terrible WhiteWater. REPUBLICAN CONSPIRACIES!

      IT WASN'T HER FAULT SHE SWEARS TO GOD!
