This is a reposting of my weekly Da Tech Guy column: Laws Are For The Little People At State Dept.
By A.P. Dillon
For the last two weeks, I’ve been keeping track of the Hillary email scandal, including her upholding of the level of transparency we’ve come to know from the Obama administration and the media’s reactions.
After weeks of badgering by the press on the legality of her private email server, it is looking like the laws and policies surrounding email accounts are just for the little people at the State Department.
Those policies include an exit agreement (form OF-109), which the State Department confirmed Mrs. Clinton did not sign.
Multiple reporters pressed the State Department’s Jen Psaki to answer if Clinton had signed such an exit agreement. Psaki dragged out answering that question for days.
The Daily Caller is reporting that a State Department whistleblower has made statements that State Department employees who don’t sign the exit form OF-109 face ‘dire consequences’.
Psaki downplayed the OF-109 form and mentioned that neither Condoleeza Rice nor Colin Powell signed the form either. This admission by Psaki of into looking into past files with apparent ease is at odds with her inability to answer reporter questions in a timely fashion about Hillary Clinton.
This exit policy at the State Department is just be the tip of the iceberg, according to a recent column by Dan Epstein at USA Today. Epstein asserts that Clinton has broken three transparency laws – The Federal Records Act, Section 1924 of Title 18 of the U.S. Code and The Freedom of Information Act.
