As her latest batch of emails demonstrated, Hillary Clinton instructed a top aide in 2011 to send a classified email in an insecure manner by removing the heading. It’s a federal crime to remove a classified marking and then transmit it in an unclassified manner.
The biggest felony, however, is her server.
Hillary responded Sunday by saying, “It never would have happened” and it’s “common practice.” She is quite the swindler.
She is rewriting her email history by saying she was only asking for whatever could be sent to be sent. There is no there there because it was never sent out.
Just to go off topic a bit, that’s exactly the defense Hillary’s predator husband gave a number of times, most notably during the Lewinsky hearings – it depends on what the definition of “is” is.
She made her comments on Face the Nation with friendly host John Dickerson.
She not only says she said what she didn’t say, she’s saying it’s obviously so!
DICKERSON: “Aren’t you ordering him to violate the laws on handling classified material there?”
CLINTON: “No. Not at all. As the State Department said just this week, that did not happen. It never would have happened because that’s just not the way I treated classified information. Headings are not classification notices and so oftentimes we’re trying to get the best information we can. Obviously what I’m asking for is whatever can be transmitted, if it doesn’t come through secure to be transmitted on the unclassified system. So, no, there is nothing to that, like so much else that has been talked about in the last year.”
“Headings are not classification notices?”
Dickerson, to his credit, did quiz her but she kept focusing on it never having been sent. That’s like a burglar saying the break-in was unsuccessful so therefore it’s not a crime.
She went along with her usual – it’s common practice and she had confidence in her toady Jake Sullivan to do it right.
DICKERSON: “So, in no instance — what’s striking about that particular e-mail suggests you were very facile with how to do this, this process, you knew the instructions how to get around the restrictions for sending classified information. So you’re saying there was never an instance, any other instance in which you did that?”
CLINTON: “No. And it wasn’t sent. I think this is another instance where, what is common practice, namely, look, I needed information, I had points I had to make. I was waiting for a secure fax that could give me the whole picture. But oftentimes there’s a lot of information that isn’t at all classified. So whatever information can be appropriately transmitted unclassified often was — that’s true for every agency in the government and everybody that does business with the government. But the important point here is, I had great confidence because I worked with Jake Sullivan for years. He is the most meticulous, careful person you could possibly do business with. And he knew exactly what was and wasn’t appropriate. And in fact the State Department has said there was no transmission of any classified information. It’s another effort by people looking for something to throw against the wall, as you said in the beginning of the program, to see what sticks. But there’s no there there.”
She’s still trying to excuse her felonious act of not putting emails into the government system by saying they get there anyway. She does this to evade the question of her compromising national security by exchanging information on a nonsecure server.
DICKERSON: “Well this one is a little different since FBI is investigating this specific question of whether a classification was meddled with. Let me ask you about another e-mail in this batch, which was one in which you seemed to express surprise that somebody emailed on non-State Department personal email, which is what you were doing. Why was that a surprise to you? “
CLINTON: “Well, I emailed two people on their government accounts because I knew that all of that would be part of the government system. Indeed the vast majority of all my e-mails are in the government system. That’s how I conducted the business. I was very clear about emailing anything having to do with business to people on their government accounts.”
Is she for real? She did everything she could to keep her emails secret.
Watch if you can bear it.
Democrat Bob Woodward said Hillary wanted to “subvert the rules” because she lives in a bubble.
