The Patriot Post® · Hillary's Highlight Reel Continues

By Nate Jackson ·

The State Department finally got around to dumping a few thousand more of Hillary Clinton’s emails Friday, and there are at least a couple of real doozies. For starters, there are another 66 emails sent or received that containing classified material, bringing the total of such emails to 1,340. Remember that time she insisted, “I did not email any classified material to anyone on my email,” or her promise, “There is no classified material”? Good times.

Another revelation is that she instructed Jake Sullivan, her deputy chief of staff at the time and now her campaign foreign-policy adviser, to strip classification from some material and fax it to her over an unsecured channel. “[T]urn into nonpaper w no identifying heading and send nonsecure,” she told him in what can only be construed as a direct order to violate the law regarding sensitive or classified information.

Less serious — indeed, more humorous — she expressed dismay, again to Sullivan, that someone at the State Department was … wait for it … using a personal email account. “I was surprised he used personal email account if he is at State,” she wrote from her private email account and server. Oh, and by the way, that particular email was marked classified.

But never mind all that, she told us when the scandal blew up. “What I did was legally permitted.”

Clinton’s campaign insists, “It is false that Hillary Clinton asked for classified material to be sent over a nonsecure system.” Furthermore, she said what she requested of Sullivan was “common practice.” So we suppose that’s a Clintonesque “meaning of is” parsing.
