Klayman Wants NSA to Turn Over Hillary Emails

When I saw the headline “Attorney fighting government asks NSA for Hillary’s emails,” I didn’t even need to click the link to know that the attorney in question had to be Larry Klayman. Come on, who else could it possibly have been but the Klaymaniac himself?

A lawyer who is fighting the U.S. government on several fronts, including pursuit of the content of Hillary Clinton’s privately controlled emails while secretary of state, says he won’t be derailed by the fact she wiped clean her computer server.

He’s just asking the National Security Agency and the Central Intelligence Agency for the copies of Clinton’s emails they intercepted.

The requests were filed by Larry Klayman of FreedomWatch, who has several cases against the government over Clinton’s release of information about Israel, her family foundation and the crash of the helicopter that killed members of Seal Team Six.

Pertinent to most of his work is the content of the emails on the server Clinton set up in her home while serving as secretary of state…

In a letter to the NSA, which was similar to a letter he sent to the CIA, he said his organization was submitting requests for documents under the Freedom of Information Act.

“It has been publicly revealed and officially confirmed that the NSA routinely and continuously intercepts and captures all or most electronic messages … sent and received by persons inside the United States and also worldwide. The U.S. government argues that this indiscriminate interception of emails on a massive scale is necessary, lawful and justified on grounds that the massive database collected and stored can later be searched, as needed. As a result, the NSA admits that it has copies of all emails sent or received by Hillary Clinton during her tenure as Secretary of State.”

So apparently this is what Klayman does when he isn’t suing journalists for daring to quote court documents about him — and failing badly, so badly that the judge threatens him with sanctions for his usual sloppy and incompetent work. Hey Larry, weren’t you supposed to have deposed Obama with the backing of those “millions” of people who never showed up at your rally by now?

    Dear Mister Qaeda,

     

    Good work on Benghazi. American Patriots will never get to the bottom of this one (thank Allah for LiberalMedia complicity). Soon I will take over for Barack Hussein Obama [Peace Be Upon Him], America’s few remaining guns will be seized, the go code to rise up and kill America’s Job Creators will be passed to our agents via their ObamaPhones, and Shariah Law will be fully instituted.

     

    Love, Hillary.

     

    PS. How did the Gay Wedding go? Did you get the flowers we forced the Christians to arrange for you?

    Learn something new every day. I was previously unaware that State Department traffic was subject to FOIA. Or for that matter that NSA intercepts were.

    FOIA has 9 exemptions and 3 exclusions. The first exemption is; “Exemption 1: Information that is classified to protect national security. The material must be properly classified under an Executive Order.”

    That would cover most NSA work. For reference, here are the others:

    Exemption 2: Information related solely to the internal personnel rules and practices of an agency.

    Exemption 3: Information that is prohibited from disclosure by another federal law. Additional resources on the use of Exemption 3 can be found on the Department of Justice FOIA Resources page.

    Exemption 4: Information that concerns business trade secrets or other confidential commercial or financial information.

    Exemption 5: Information that concerns communications within or between agencies which are protected by legal privileges, that include but are not limited to:

    1.Attorney-Work Product Privilege

    2.Attorney-Client Privilege

    3.Deliberative Process Privilege

    4.Presidential Communications Privilege

    Exemption 6: Information that, if disclosed, would invade another individual’s personal privacy.

    Exemption 7: Information compiled for law enforcement purposes if one of the following harms would occur. Law enforcement information is exempt if it:

    7(A). Could reasonably be expected to interfere with enforcement proceedings

    7(B). Would deprive a person of a right to a fair trial or an impartial adjudication

    7(C). Could reasonably be expected to constitute an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy

    7(D). Could reasonably be expected to disclose the identity of a confidential source

    7(E). Would disclose techniques and procedures for law enforcement investigations or prosecutions

    7(F). Could reasonably be expected to endanger the life or physical safety of any individual

    Exemption 8: Information that concerns the supervision of financial institutions.

    Exemption 9: Geological information on wells.

    Damn, now I can’t stop thinking of Gumby.

  • caseloweraz

    Exempting trade secrets and certain financial information makes sense. But adding a separate exemption for oil wells does not, IMO. Does the USGS develop resource maps in enough detail that making them public would give some wildcatter a leg up? Both possibilities seem unlikely in the extreme.

    Damn, I think I’ll sue the NSA if they don’t turn bigfoot over to me.

    I don’t like the partisan aspects of this, but I have to admit it kinda tickles a funny bone to see someone ask the NSA for stuff…because, you know, they probably really do have it.

    It’s a sad, dark kinda funny…but it’s still funny.
