DOJ Says Atty. Gen. Used Alias to Conduct Official Business to Protect Security, Privacy
JUDICIAL WATCH ^ | 2/23/2018 | Judicial Watch

Posted on 02/27/2018 10:29:51 PM PST by bitt

Illustrating how government hides information from the American public, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch used a fake name to conduct official Department of Justice (DOJ) business in agency emails obtained by Judicial Watch. As the nation’s chief law enforcement officer Lynch, Barack Obama’s second attorney general, skirted public-records laws by using the alias Elizabeth Carlisle in emails she sent from her official DOJ account. In the records provided to Judicial Watch, the DOJ explains it as necessary to “protect her security and privacy and enable her to conduct Department business efficiently via email.”

This begs the question of how many other government officials use fake names and whether those aliases are searched when agencies process Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests. Besides Lynch, we have only discovered the use of such aliases among government operatives to conduct official business at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Obama’s EPA administrator, Lisa Jackson, famously used the alias Richard Windsor in a government email account to conduct official business and communicate with staff. Jackson even took required EPA computer training under the fake identity with the handle Windsor.Richard@epa.gov. She eventually resigned over the scandal, which brought to light the agency’s violations of federal open-records laws.

In Lynch’s case, Judicial Watch requested the records as part of an investigation into the Obama administration’s involvement in a United Nation’s international law enforcement coalition called Strong Cities Network (SCN). The purported mission of the global coalition was to build social cohesion and community resilience to counter violent extremism. The DOJ masterminded the agreement and Americans found out about the U.S.’s participation when Lynch announced it during a U.N. speech on September 29, 2015. ...

I like the names they chose. Sound like soap opera characters.

“In the records provided to Judicial Watch, the DOJ explains it as necessary to “protect her security and privacy and enable her to conduct Department business efficiently via email.””

Despite it being illegal as hell. But I’m sure sleepy Sessions is going to set this right soon. It’s some kind of 3D chess thing....

I recall that Obama's fake email address was exposed. He'd been using it to keep watch on what was happening while retaining deniability and then the new administration figured out his fake email address and suddenly - Obama doesn't have deniability anymore.

All this lying and hiding is "normal" for them.

For those who follow Q Anon posts, Q asserts that Lorreta Lynch; HRC; James Comey, John Clapper, Chuck Shumer, Rod Rosenstein, Valerie Jarret, Susan Rice, Huma Abedin, John Biden,and Andrew McCabe had email addresses no one knew about.

I have no problem with officials using alias emails as long as when record searches are conducted they include all aliases.

It would be hard to manage a mailbox if you used your real name as a public official because I am sure everyone emails donaldtrump@whitehouse.gov and it really could keep important emails from being seen.

Like I said, all searches under FOIA should be required to use these emails as part of the search.

Richard Windsor was created to communicate and hide actions. Windsor was the first one to be uncovered. DemocRATS have used this method ever since. There are no rules and regulations for them. The end ALWAYS justifies the means. To their twisted way of thinking if the end result is what they desire, all actions involved in the effort are retroactively good, legal.

It is not Department business, it is the People’s business.

The last post in that thread mentions EmergeUSA, which is one of the terrorist-linked groups in Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel’s network.

The EPA did it. Obama did it. Hillary did it.

All of it was an effort to subvert and ignore public records’ act and FOIA requests.

Isn’t that called fraud, and falsification of government records?

"I recall that Obama's fake email address was exposed."

A fake email? Heck, Soebarka's fake background was exposed and most people didn't even give a damn, especially those in a position of power to actually do something about it.

Should a different outcome be expected this time?
