Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

Clinton Lawyer Email Storage not Secure

See if you can get your head around this one.

The State Department claims Hillary’s emails were not classified when she sent them, but somehow they are classified now. Because they were not classified at some point, the State Department gave her lawyer one particular kind of safe to store them in. Now, literally months after everyone else said they are classified, and years after the emails were sent, State says they are so highly classified that the safe they sent her lawyer is not, well, safe enough.

Makes sense, right?

The State Department has told Senate investigators that it didn’t provide Hillary Clinton’s lawyer with a secure-enough method to read now-highly classified material from her homebrew email server because it didn’t anticipate that the messages would be deemed so secret.

In July, State Department officials installed a safe at the office of Clinton attorney David Kendall after the government determined some of Clinton’s emails may have contained classified information. But it said last week the safe wasn’t suitable for so-called top secret, sensitive compartmented information, known as TS/SCI, which the government has said was found in some messages.

Assistant Secretary of State Julia Frifield wrote to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley on September 22 that “while the safe was suitable for up to top secret information, it was not approved for TS/SCI material” because the material wasn’t held in a facility set up for discussing highly secret information.

Those questions were not an issue at the time the safe was installed because “there was no indication that the emails might contain TS or TS/SCI material,” Frifield wrote in the letter.

The State Department’s letter underscores how even the nation’s diplomatic apparatus didn’t anticipate Clinton, a Democratic presidential candidate, would have sent or received such highly sensitive information on her private email server while secretary of state.

“It shows how badly the wires were crossed” between the State Department, which didn’t anticipate any of the emails would be top secret, and the intelligence community, which decided they were classified, said Steven Aftergood, a government secrecy expert at the Federation of American Scientists.

Update: despite all this information, Clinton continues to maintain she did nothing wrong, and the FBI has filed no charges against anyone.
