According to a report from The New York Times, a second review by special intelligence officials of two emails that Hillary Clinton received as secretary of state backs the inspector general finding that the emails contained highly classified information. They were inherently “Top Secret”, they didn’t need to be marked.
One email contained information relating to North Korea’s nuclear weapons program. How do you send and/or receive information like this and not know it is top secret?
The special review was conducted by the Central Intelligence Agency and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency. They found that the emails, sent in 2009 and 2011 were “Top Secret.”
The Clinton campaign and State Department responded to the initial finding from the inspector general by questioning if the emails had been overclassified arbitrarily.
We have our answer but Hillary doesn’t.
Listen to what Hillary’s campaign is saying: The Clinton campaign disagreed with the conclusion of the intelligence review and claimed that agencies within the government often have different views of what should be considered classified.
“It is not a surprise that other lawyers in the intelligence community would agree with [the inspector general],” a Clinton campaign official told NBC News.
That’s her response? How stupid does she think we are?
Let’s see, shall we believe Hillary or the national security teams and the Inspector General.
On Monday, she said she doesn’t need to apologize for using a private email and server because, “what I did was allowed.” She’s the Democratic queen and everything she does is allowed, even if it concerns North Korea’s nuclear weapons programs.
It was clearly not allowed.
She has been saying from the beginning that she didn’t receive or send documents marked classified. She’s parsing words but these agencies are saying they are inherently Top Secret.
“It is a distraction,” she said about her playing loose with national security.
She is threatening to put employers in jail for wage theft but thinks violating national security is only a distraction.
Although Clinton’s campaign statements about the emails have gradually evolved, she’s continually denied sending or receiving any classified material.
Hillary’s operatives announced that she is going to turn the dying campaign around by being humorous and speaking from the heart and with joy.
She will be more spontaneous too! She’s planning her spontaneity.
“There will be no more flip jokes about her private email server. There will be no rope lines to wall off crowds, which added to an impression of aloofness. And there will be new efforts to bring spontaneity to a candidacy that sometimes seems wooden and overly cautious,” the New York Times reports
Morning Joe responded:
The next batch of Hillary emails are due to be released Sept. 30.
