Maybe Clinton Isn’t the Democratic Pick

Posted: August 12, 2015 in Elections

It looks to me like the Democratic nomination for President may not be in the books for Hillary after all. It’s already been widely reported that classified information that may have endangered American lives was transmitted on her personal server. And that fall she had right before she quit also looks a lot like Harry Reid’s problem with his exercise equipment.

Anyway, while most are likely aware of this issue, here is an article with a fair amount of detail about Hillary’s current problem. What follows is an excerpt, so to read the full article, please click on the title:

Clinton giving up server amid concerns about classified data

On Tuesday, Clinton attorney David Kendall gave to the Justice Department three thumb drives containing copies of work-related emails sent to and from her personal email addresses via her private server.

Kendall gave the thumb drives, containing copies of roughly 30,000 emails, to the FBI after the agency determined he could not remain in possession of the classified information contained in some of the emails, according to a U.S. official briefed on the matter who was not authorized to speak publicly. The State Department previously had said it was comfortable with Kendall keeping the emails at his Washington law office.

Also Tuesday, Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa said two emails that traversed Clinton’s personal system were deemed “Top Secret, Sensitive Compartmented Information” – a rating that is among the government’s highest classifications. Grassley said the inspector general of the nation’s intelligence community had reported the new details about the higher classification to Congress on Tuesday.

Those two emails were among four that had previously been determined by the inspector general of the intelligence community to have been classified at the time they were sent. The State Department disputes that the emails were classified at that time.

“Department employees circulated these emails on unclassified systems in 2009 and 2011 and ultimately some were forwarded to Secretary Clinton,” said State Department spokesman John Kirby. “They were not marked as classified.”

The inspector general for the intelligence community had told Congress that potentially hundreds of emails containing classified information are among the cache that Clinton provided to the State Department.
