On Wednesday, rebel Internet watchdog group Wikileaks posted a searchable database of over 30,000 documents sent and received by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email server. It didn’t take long for people searching for pay dirt to hit it.
The latest shock email came in the form of a message from one of Hillary Clinton’s aides, Nora Toiv. In the message, Toiv confirmed that the State Department was not only in contact with YouTube and its parent company Google after the Benghazi attacks, but that YouTube was blocking Benghazi-related videos at the behest of the State Department.
Toiv, a special assistant to the counselor of the State Department, wrote the Sept. 27, 2012, email with the subject line “RE: Google and YouTube” in which she referenced talking with a contact at the Internet giant named “Sue.” In the email, she claimed that videos were still being blocked two weeks after the attack and would remain blocked until Oct. 1, 2012.
“Sue just called back and the block will stay through Monday. They will not/not be unblocking it before then,” Toiv wrote.
Also somewhat ominous was the fact that the personal phone numbers of Google CEO Larry Page and YouTube CEO Salar Kamangar — two of the biggest movers and shakers in the tech world — were listed in the message. This links the Benghazi cover up to the highest levels of one of the world’s most powerful tech companies.
The news shocked many on social media, who reacted virulently against Clinton’s latest shenanigans:
t’s truly sickening that this is the kind of “transparency” Hillary Clinton thinks the American people are entitled to. And if you think it’s going to get any better if she becomes president, think again. This would be a woman given almost infinite power to cover her own steps.
How can anyone possibly think she would act in the country’s best interest when she’s proven over and over again her only priority is herself?
