Friday, January 29th was a very bad day for Hillary Clinton. Her email scandal deepened in not just one but several serious ways.
Remember when her campaign angrily insisted that the intelligence community’s Obama-appointed Inspector General (IG) had wrongly identified two pieces of intelligence classified as ‘top secret’ among the (non-deleted) emails on her improper, unsecure private server? They tried to cast the conclusion as the product of a harmless inter-agency squabble with the State Department – the first of several attempts to question the watchdog’s motives and integrity.
Not only was the IG correct at the time, the State Department has now flagged 22 of her emails as top secret – so sensitive, in fact, that they cannot be released, even in redacted form:
Fox News has reported that some ‘beyond top secret’ information is also being withheld entirely. Team Clinton’s preposterous “Republicans and their allies” conspiracy theory suffers a big setback, to say the least:
“The intelligence community has deemed some of Hillary Clinton’s emails “too damaging” to national security to release under any circumstances, according to a U.S. government official close to the ongoing review. A second source, who was not authorized to speak on the record, backed up the finding. The determination was first reported by Fox News, hours before the State Department formally announced Friday that seven email chains, found in 22 documents, will be withheld “in full” because they, in fact, contain “Top Secret” information.
“… the Obama administration confirmed to the Associated Press that the seven email chains would be withheld. The department has since confirmed those details publicly. The decision to withhold the documents in full, and not provide even a partial release with redactions, further undercuts claims by the State Department and the Clinton campaign that none of the intelligence in the emails was classified when it hit Clinton’s personal server. Fox News is told the emails include intelligence from “special access programs,” or SAP, which is considered beyond ‘Top Secret.'”
But that’s not all. The State Department also declared all email correspondence (and a memo) between Sidney Blumenthal and Hillary Clinton to be classified.
This is the same Sid Blumenthal who was barred from official service by the Obama White House because of his unethical reputation. And whose email correspondence Hillary claimed was strictly personal and not at all work-related; and whom Hillary swore under oath was not an adviser of hers, ‘official or unofficial.’
These latest revelations are nothing short of incredible. They beg the obvious question: “Why hasn’t Hillary Clinton already been indicted and sent to federal prison by now?!”
We aren’t exactly sure, but it’s probably because of an extremely corrupt federal government who doesn’t believe in equal justice under the law.
Do you believe that Hillary will eventually be indicted and face justice?
