From the group of 30,000 e-mails returned to the State Department, 110 e-mails in 52 e-mail chains were determined by the owning agency to contain classified information at the time they were sent or received. Eight of those chains contained information that was Top Secret at the time they were sent; 36 chains contained Secret information at the time; and eight contained Confidential information, which is the lowest level of classification. Separate from those, about 2,000 additional e-mails were “up-classified” to make them Confidential; the information in those had not been classified at the time the e-mails were sent.
Three of Hillary Clinton emails contained the letter “c” for “confidential” and when she was asked about it by the FBI, according to the FBI’s Friday Labor Day dump-notes, she said she thought it stood for the third letter of the alphabet.
“Clinton stated she did not know and could only speculate it was referencing paragraphs marked in alphabetical order,” the interview notes stated.
She never wondered about “a” or “b” or “d”?
Chris Wallace thinks she was taking the only path she could to protect herself during the FBI interview — pretend she didn’t know and didn’t remember (but maybe she’s just incapable of adequate thought processes).
Twice in early August alone, Hillary told a joint conference of the National Association of Black Journalists and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists, that she never sent or received any emails that were marked classified at the time, even though the FBI chief told a different story — though his comments might have come up short as well.
“What we have here is pretty much what I have been saying throughout this whole year, and that is that I never sent or received anything that was marked classified,” Hillary said. “If, in retrospect, some different agency said it should have been [classified] … that’s what this debate is about. But Director Comey said there was absolutely no intention on my part to either ignore or in any way dismiss the importance of those documents.”
In congressional testimony, Mr. Comey said more than 100 emails sent or received through Mrs. Clinton’s private account contained classified information, though the majority of them were not clearly marked.
Mr. Comey said three of the messages included markings indicating that they were classified and marked confidential, and he added that Mrs. Clinton may not have been “sophisticated” enough to understand those markings.
Wikileaks reminds us that she received thousands of cables (different from emails) marked “c” for confidential in her first year alone so how could she have not known? Her brain couldn’t make the leap?
Note on Clinton FBI report: Our records show that Clinton sent & received thousands of cables with “(C)” paragraph classification markings.

If we get Hillary, we also get her lying husband — he will be in charge of the economy and any additional lying she doesn’t get to. Bill completely misrepresented the emails marked “C”. Actually he lied. Even WaPo gave him three Pinocchios.
