The United States has been kidnapped by the National Security Act, as shown so well, in this interaction between Congressman Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) and Charles McCullough, Intelligence Community Inspector General (ODNI OIG), during a hearing of the United States House Committee on Oversight and Government regarding the High Security nature of Hillary Clinton’s emails.
When asked by Rep. Chaffetz which intelligence agency is in possession of the “hot” emails, McCullough responds that those who have “ownership” of them will not release any information about them, as they are characterized as “ORCON” (Originator Controlled). Furthermore, McCullough cannot say which actual agency is in possession of these emails, “In an open hearing.”
Chaffetz grins at the ludicrousness of this situation, commenting, “So, you can’t even mention which agency won’t allow us, as members of Congress to see something that Hillary Clinton allowed someone without a security clearance, in a non-protected format to see!”
When pressed further for the Inspector General reasons as to why this information is so protected. McCullough replies, “We shouldn’t get into the content of these emails in an open hearing.”
Chaffetz backs down and says, “I don’t want to violate that but the concern is that it’s already been violated by Hillary Clinton – and it was her choice, she set it up and she created this problem and she created this mess and we shouldn’t have to go through this – but she did that.”
McCullough responds: “This is the segment of emails that I had to have people in my office read in to particular programs to even see these emails. We didn’t possess the required clearances and compartments -”
“So, even the Inspector General of ODNI didn’t have the requisite security clearances?” asks Chaffetz.
“That’s correct,” replies McCullough.
Chaffetz reacts, “Wow. Wow, wow, wow.”
The YouTube creator of this clip believes that ODNI McCullough should technically have the right to view all artifacts deriving from the US intelligence community and she speculates as to whether or not the “owner” of this intercepted cache of emails might not be the UN (a thought which would never cross my mind).
Personally, I just think that the Deep State has no respect for the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community. He is the window-dressing or the façade of accountability in the US Government, which is essentially non-existent.
