As if Hillary Clinton needed another scandal this election cycle, but that's exactly what she got following Wednesday night's "Commander-in-Chief Forum" held at the U.S.S. Intrepid aviation museum in New York City.
Hollywood actor James Woods noticed something odd when watching Clinton's portion of the forum and then tweeted an image to share with his followers. The photo, a still image from the televised debate, appears to show something in Clinton's left ear.
Woods' comment was simply: "Earpiece? #CrookedHillary"
A few minutes later, he shared a link to an email from WikiLeaks' Clinton Archive in which her longtime aide, Huma Abedin, wrote, "Did u take your earpiece or do I need to get it?" He included a screenshot with the question highlighted.
An hour and a half later, he continued to hammer away at Clinton with a photo showing the earpiece that indicated she was getting talking points from the New York Times and Washington Post newspapers. He wrote, "She can't even #lie without help from a gaggle of other #liars through an earpiece."
He then added, "She literally can't help herself. She's the kind of sociopath who will lie even if the truth were more beneficial." That tweet included a link to a blog article that picked up on the same issue that quotes unnamed New York Police Department sources confirming the earpiece was meant to feed information to Clinton.
That report states:
NYPD sources involved with the NBC forum's security detail confirm Clinton was wearing an "inductive earpiece," the same technology employed by almost all lead Broadway actors to receive forgotten lines and stealth off-stage cues from directors. The flesh-colored earbud is easily concealed. There are no wires running directly to the ear like you see with the units employed by Secret Service protection detail personnel.
The skin-tone piece Clinton was wearing, however, was somewhat different from the standard issued stealth earpiece and is much different in appearance from a hearing aid. This unit is considered a "micro" earbud which contains all the technology but is a fraction of the size with a very high price tag. In fact, most of the units this size, approximately 3mm or comparable to a small pearl stud earring, are normally issued to law enforcement or corporate security teams, sources said. At a size that small, the earbud is designed to sit inside the opening of the ear canal, almost invisible to anyone. However, the unit does move and shift along with its wearer and at times can slightly pop out of the canal and require a quick readjustment, experts said.
Ironically, the revelation that Clinton was wearing such a unit might have only been recognized because of astute NYPD officers attached to her security detail who are accustomed to seeing the stealth apparatus at stage shows, conventions and security personnel of VIPs and international dignitaries at the United nations and elsewhere in the five boroughs. Likewise, NYPD detectives employ a parallel technology to communicate during undercover Ops.
Based on experts familiar with the technology, the stealth earpiece operates on a bandwidth from 300 Hz to 4KHz. Many such units are powered by SONY. The range of the unit can be unlimited depending on how the back end is set up. Technically, you could receive cues from 100 feet away or from someone sitting in Washington, D.C., while you sat in New York City, experts said. The set up and range is flexible based on need and use. The unit does not require Bluetooth to operate via short distances but long range operations would require Bluetooth, which is easily configured.
