Clinton Signed NDA, Didn’t Send ‘Top Secret’ Info

Ignorance was never an excuse, but the NDA means she lied.

It was almost certain that Hillary Clinton signed a Sensitive Compartmented Information Nondisclosure Agreement (NDA) when she took her post as secretary of state, but now, thanks to a Freedom of Information Act request, we know she signed one — a day after assuming office. The agreement states, “I have been advised that the unauthorized disclosure, unauthorized retention, or negligent handling of SCI by me could cause irreparable injury to the United States or be used to advantage by a foreign nation.” Hundreds of classified emails have been found on her private and unsecured email server. Ignorance was never an excuse, but the discovery of the NDA seals the fact that she lied.

Meanwhile, however, one particular dispute between departments has been resolved in Clinton’s favor. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper’s office concluded that two of Clinton’s emails did not contain “top secret” information. Previously, Intelligence Community Inspector General I. Charles McCullough III had determined that some of Clinton’s email included “information classified up to TOP SECRET//SI/TK/NOFORN.” So is Clapper’s overruling a case of the Obama administration circling the wagons for the Democrat nominee? Either way, it matters little. Not only is the review ongoing, but Hillary Clinton’s record of malfeasance is well established. Whatever the level of classified the information she sent was, her dereliction of duty is beyond dispute.
