Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s Law Firm Tied to Hillary Clinton
It’s popular that if the FBI suggests prosecution in the Hillary Clinton email case, the choice will be put in the hands of Attorney General Loretta Lynch.
But unfamiliar is that Lynch was a litigation partner for 8 years at a major Washington law firm that served the Clintons.
Lynch was with the Washington-headquartered international law practice Hogan & Hartson LLP from March 2002 through April 2010.
According to files Hillary Clinton’s very first governmental project revealed in 2008, Hogan & Hartson’s New York-based partner Howard Topaz was the tax lawyer who submitted income tax returns for Bill and Hillary Clinton beginning in 2004.
In addition, Hogan & Hartson in Virginia submitted a patent trademark request on May 19, 2004, for Denver-based MX Logic Inc., the computer software firm that developed the email encryption system utilized to handle Clinton’s private e-mail server start in July 2013. A tech specialist has observed that employees of MX Logic might have had access to all the emails that went through her account.
In 1999, President Bill Clinton chose Lynch for the first of her two terms as U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of New York, a position she held until she signed up with Hogan & Hartson in March 2002.
While there is no proof that Lynch played a direct function either in the tax work done by the firm for the Clintons or in linking Hillary s personal email server to MX Logic, the ethics of the legal career hold all partners jointly liable for the actions of other partners in a business.
If Hogan and Hartson formerly represented the Clintons on tax matters, it is incumbent upon U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch to [disclose] what, if any, role she had in such tax matters, said Tom Fitton, president of Washington-based Judicial Watch.
His guard dog group is playing a leading role in pressing Freedom of Information Act litigation to get the release of Clinton s email correspondence while she was secretary of state.
If Lynch played any function at all concerning earnings tax work done for the Clintons by Hogan and Hartson, it would bolster the call for a unique counsel need to the FBI suggest prosecution in the Hillary Clinton email case, Fitton stated.
As WND reported earlier this month, previous U.S. Attorney Joseph diGenova is positive Department of Justice district attorneys have convened a grand jury in the Hillary Clinton email case, based on remarks from Attorney General Loretta Lynch.
A report released April 8, 2008, by The American Lawyer noted Hogan & Hartson were amongst Hillary Clinton’s biggest monetary fans in the legal industry during her very first presidential project.
Firm legal representatives and personnel have actually donated almost $123,400 to her campaign so far, according to project contribution data from the Center for Responsive Politics, Nate Raymond observed in The American Lawyer post. Christine Varney, a partner in Hogan s Washington, D.C., office, functioned as chief counsel to the Clinton-Gore Campaign in 1992.
Hogan & Hartson tie to MX Logic.
As initially reported by Patrick Howley on Breitbart.com last August, Hogan & Hartson submitted with the Commissioner for Trademarks in Virginia to desert MX Logic s application for the trademark SPAMTRAQ in a letter composed on Hogan & Hartson stationary and signed by the firms Virginia-based lawyer Audrey H. Reed on May 19, 2004.
On July 30, 2009, Internet security software application giant McAfee Inc. revealed it had entered into a definitive agreement to obtain MX Logic for $140 million in money.
On March 4, 2015, CBS News reported that in November 2012, without description, Clinton’s personal e-mail account was reconfigured to use Google’s servers as a backup in case her own personal e-mail server failed.
CBS further reported that in July 2013, five months after Clinton resigned as secretary of state, her personal e-mail server was reconfigured once again to use a Denver-based commercial e-mail carrier, MX Logic, which was then owned by McAfee.
In June 2013, Clinton worked with Platte River networks in Denver to update, secure and handle the private e-mail server for both Clintons and their personnel’s, according to the Denver Post.
Email security under MX Logic questioned.
Marc Perkel, a tech business owner and former systems administrator at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, went on the record on March 16, 2015, describing that workers at MX Logic, now owned by McAfee, had full access to all Hillary Clinton’s classified e-mails in an unencrypted form.
When someone utilizes a Spam Filtering service they point their MX records to that service and all e-mail for that domain goes to the spam filtering service initially they clean it and forward the good e-mail on to the recipient server which is secret to the world.
Exactly what this indicates is that when Obama or anybody in the State Department emailed Hillary, the email went to MX Logic, Perkel stressed. It was then decrypted, looked for spam and viruses, and after that re-encrypted and sent over the open Internet to Hillary s server. While it was at MX Logic it could be read, tapped, archived, or forwarded to anybody on the planet without anybody knowing.
Lynch’s role in HSBC money-laundering case.
WND was first to report in a series of posts beginning in 2012 money-laundering charges brought by John Cruz, a previous HSBC vice president and relationship manager, based on his more than 1,000 pages of evidence and secret audio recordings.
The personnel of the Senate Judiciary Committee concentrated on Cruz s accusations that Lynch, acting then in her capability as the United States attorney for the Eastern District of New York, engaged in a Department of Justice cover-up. Obama’s attorney general of the United States nominee enabled HSBC to enter into a deferred prosecution settlement where the bank consented to pay a $1.9 billion fine and confess willful criminal conduct in exchange for dropping criminal investigations and prosecutions of HSBC directors or workers.
