Ha ha, gotcha. That was a rhetorical question, obviously.
Last March, Hillary Clinton stood up in front of the entire world and said the following:
“I did not e-mail any classified material to anyone on my e-mail. There is no classified material. So, I’m certainly well aware of the classification requirements and did not send classified material.”
Wow, she really sold it, huh? I don’t know about you, but I certainly believed her.
Since then, we’ve learned that this was… Wait, what’s the word? Oh yeah: It was a lie. And now there’s even more evidence, if you need it, that she was telling a great big huge enormous lie. Catherine Herridge and Pamela K. Browne, Fox News:
Hillary Clinton’s emails on her unsecured, homebrew server contained intelligence from the U.S. government’s most secretive and highly classified programs, according to an unclassified letter from a top inspector general to senior lawmakers.
Fox News exclusively obtained the unclassified letter, sent Jan. 14 from Intelligence Community Inspector General I. Charles McCullough III. It laid out the findings of a recent comprehensive review by intelligence agencies that identified “several dozen” additional classified emails — including specific intelligence known as “special access programs” (SAP).
That indicates a level of classification beyond even “top secret,” the label previously given to two emails found on her server, and brings even more scrutiny to the presidential candidate’s handling of the government’s closely held secrets.
Beyond top secret. And yet we’re supposed to believe she had no idea she wasn’t supposed to transmit such sensitive information on the illegal, unsecured network she set up to elude oversight. Pretty much anybody could’ve gotten their hands on that stuff, and for all we know, somebody did. Yet again, Hillary Clinton has put American lives in danger.
If you don’t think Hillary’s lying, then the only other possible explanation is that she’s an incompetent idiot. Which one is it, Team Hillary? (You already know my answer: She’s both.)
Ah, but you now whose fault this really is, right? Go ahead, guess…
Yep, you got it: those dirty Republicans did it. Chuck Ross reports:
Hillary Clinton’s top campaign spokesman believes a vast right-wing conspiracy of sorts is behind Tuesday’s explosive report about the discovery of emails on the former secretary of state’s server that are classified at levels higher than previously known.
According to NBC’s Andrea Mitchell, Brian Fallon, Clinton’s communications director, believes that the Intelligence Community’s inspector general, I. Charles McCullough III, is “selectively” leaking information in coordination with Republicans…
Asked what evidence he has, Fallon stated his belief that McCullough sought to save face in response to a Politico article published two months ago that “directly challenged” his determination this summer that the two emails maintained on Clinton’s server were “top secret.”
Well yeah, that must be it. The same vast right-wing conspiracy that tried to tell you Bill Clinton was chasing tail in the White House is now peddling the ridiculous conspiracy theory that Hillary is capable of saying something she knows isn’t true.
Does any of this matter? That depends on whether you think the same rules and laws that apply to the rest of us should apply to Hillary Clinton. In other words, it depends on whether you’re a Republican or a Democrat.
