The identity of the person he sent the email to was redacted on privacy grounds. "FOIA is real and everyday here in the cesspool, and even federal court action on personal accounts is real."

So don't leave a paper trail of your crimes.

Also,
cess·pool
ˈsesˌpool/
noun
an underground container for the temporary storage of liquid waste and sewage.
a disgusting or corrupt place.

Nailed it.

Then make all employees wear a microphone every second they're on duty. They work for us, not the other way around.

Kelly's email, referring to the Freedom of Information Act, which allows journalists and the public to petition the federal government for a wide range of official records, including emails, was obtained by BuzzFeed News in response to a FOIA lawsuit.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
*breathes*
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

So, he wants to hide things from the public and therefore demands nothing take place in email.  Demands it in an email.

Kreist, what a f*cking moron.
 
2018-06-08 05:01:36 PM  
But I was repeatedly assured, during the Bush administration, that if I didn't have anything to hide, I had nothing to worry about.

He sounds innocent.

Little late for that, doncha think Sparky?  Not like you have all that much left to hide that we don't already know or suspect.

This is like that meeting they had about leaks where they predicted it would leak.

Just get a closed Twitter group.

I was in federal government more than a dozen years. There is nothing in any email I sent or received that would embarrass me to have in public.

The only cesspool in DC is that Kelly and crew brought with them.

No, that was the guy that got kicked the fark out.

So the rumors were she slept with both the wife beater, and The Mooch.

Suck a bucket of cess, Kelly.

Oh look, somebody in the Trump administration did something, so it's automatically evil/criminal/stupid. When Fark cuts costs by replacing commenters with bots, the Politics Tab anti-Trumpers will be the first to go because they'll be the simplest.

be honest - if the Obama administration had been caught doing this, you would have hit the gotdamn f*cking roof over it.

no, don't bother to deny it.  the double standard is glaringly obvious no matter how loud you scream or what lies you puke up as a defense.

I hope his complicity and inaction in the face of a dire threat to our country ruins the rest of his life.

So it only took how long for them to realize that anything placed on paper or into a computer can be requested by FOIA?  These are NOT the best and brightest are they?

medic2731: So it only took how long for them to realize that anything placed on paper or into a computer can be requested by FOIA?  These are NOT the best and brightest are they?


Yeah, but if you want to know what they said - what was picked up on the hidden microphones - you're out of luck, because Russia doesn't have FOIA.

I'm really glad I don't work for DHS anymore. One thing I learned during my time there was to always keep emails.

ImpendingCynic: Remember when people thought he was the reasonable adult in the administration?


We all need to face it. There are no adults in the room anymore.

Oh my god it's already started! Our precious troll has been replaced by a projection bot... These truly are dark times.

I never heard about Mooch, but she was banging Lewandowski. Trump said in a meeting that "she was the best piece of ass he's ever had." But that was during the campaign.

Don't put anything on email you wouldn't want splashed across the front page of the morning newspaper.

Don't do anything that you would be embarrassed by your grandma reading in the newspaper the next day.


Words of wisdom from my boot camp petty officers, from 1997. Still true to this day.

ImpendingCynic: Remember when people thought he was the reasonable adult in the administration?


I don't remember a time when people thought there were any adults in this administration. I must not have checked the news that afternoon.

hobnail: But I was repeatedly assured, during the Bush administration, that if I didn't have anything to hide, I had nothing to worry about.


Well, yeah, that's kind of the point. This administration is trying to do a LOT of shiat that will hurt America and by golly, we're not supposed to know about it.
 
2018-06-09 01:26:08 AM  
And that, Mr Kelly, is why they call it "evidence mail".

I'm so tired of this noise.

I mean, this is technically true, but saying it has as much effectiveness as telling a cop who is ticketing or arresting you that you pay his salary.

When the people where you work are afraid to even e-mail each other because of all the criminal bullsh*ttery going on there, you have some serious issues there. Time to GTFO and find another job.
 
2018-06-09 08:06:43 AM  
Man, these folks really hate accountability. It's almost as if...I dunno...I'm just spitballing here...that they have something to hide?
