Political watchdog uncovers 5 new emails containing classified data on unsecure server
Political watchdog Judicial Watch has uncovered more classified emails on Hillary Clinton’s private, unsecure server.
The organization announced it has found five more emails containing sensitive government information, adding the ever-growing mountain of evidence against Clinton for mishandling classified data.
In response to an FOIA lawsuit filed in May of 2015, Judicial Watch obtained two batches of files, each containing hundreds of new Hillary Clinton emails from her non-“state.gov” emailing client.
The emails expose details of Clinton’s secret meetings with George Soros while continuing to be advised by Sid Blumenthal, who was previously barred from a State Department position.
According to Judicial Watch, the new documents include material classified “confidential” on negotiations between Northern Ireland and UK, as well as negotiations with Israel, Palestine, and France.
They also include a reference to a Clinton meeting with controversial left-wing billionaire George Soros, and advice to Clinton from Sid Blumenthal, who was barred from a State Department position by the Obama administration and regardless continued to advise her on matters of state.
On June 7, 2011, Clinton received classified information on her non-secure email account from former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, which Blair also forwarded to Jake Sullivan, about Blair’s Middle East negotiations with Israel, the Palestinians and the French
On January 26, 2010, Clinton’s Deputy Chief of Staff Jake Sullivan sent classified information via his unsecure Blackberry to Huma Abedin’s State Department email account that he’d earlier sent to Clinton’s and Abedin’s non-secure @clintonemail.com email accounts about U.K. negotiations with Northern Ireland.
On October 28, 2010, Clinton exchanges information with her friend Marty Torrey – a congressional aide – who asks Clinton in an email if she would advise that Torrey meets with former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf.
Clinton responds through her non-secure email account approving the meeting and notes that she is emailing him from Hanoi, Vietnam.
An email chain dated April 8, 2010, which contains a memo from Sid Blumenthal to Hillary Clinton related to the change of government in Kyrgyzstan, contains information classified “confidential” and is redacted as “foreign government information” and “foreign relations or foreign activities of the United States, including confidential sources.”
Blumenthal urges Clinton to “develop relations” with the new government in Kyrgyzstan.
All of this suggests to me the necessity for the State Department to assert itself and take the lead in developing relations with the new government.
Abedin emails Clinton about “Invites for the week” in an undated email (but apparently written before November 1, 2011, the day Clinton’s mother died, because her mother is one of the invitees – probably written in early 2009, based on the period most of these emails seem to have been written), and notes that she (Clinton) has a “George Soros lunch from 1-3 in Southampton.”
On October 20, 2010, lawyer Lanny Davis writes Clinton an email saying, “Thank you H for who you are and what you do,” followed in the exchange by another with “PS. I swear you look younger and better every time I see you, Good night dear Hillary. Lanny.”
Mr. Davis is currently a lawyer for Michael Cohen.
In an undated email, Blumenthal emails Clinton about State Department management issues suggests that Joseph C. Wilson “should be spoken with for his view of dept, personnel … is shrewd.” Wilson is a former ambassador to Gabon who went on to become an Africa consultant and deal-maker.

Tom Fitton, President of Judicial Watch had this to say about the new classified Hillary emails found on her unsecure server:
“These classified Hillary Clinton emails that she tried to hide or destroy show why it is urgent that the DOJ finally undertake an honest criminal investigation.
“These emails show how the prior sham investigation by the Comey-Strzok-McCabe-Lynch crowd was a joke.
“It is past time for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to order a new investigation of the Hillary Clinton email scandal.”
