EXCLUSIVE: 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.
“To date, I have received two sworn declarations from one [intelligence community] element. These declarations cover several dozen emails containing classified information determined by the IC element to be at the confidential, secret, and top secret/sap levels,” said the IG letter to lawmakers with oversight of the intelligence community and State Department. “According to the declarant, these documents contain information derived from classified IC element sources.”
Clinton’s answer to this, “Untrue and intended to hurt her Presidential campaign”.
Well? Don’t you think it should? The movie “13 hours, Secret Soldiers” doesn’t address the actions or inactions of then Sec. of State Clinton because the men on the ground in the ‘mud and the blood’ could only testify to what they could see or heard, not what was happening or not happening in Washington. But this report on the contents of the emails, added to the previous revaluations, add up to a much worse, deliberate series of crimes than Watergate or Iran Contra.
Do you think that Hollywood will want to see a movie about this? Hell, I can’t even see the current movie on Benghazi at the local theater in liberal Hingham, MA. Same theater that wouldn’t show ‘Call to Action’, the Seal picture.
(As Doug would say…this just in!)
But going after retired Gen. David Petraeus a second time for national security indiscretions is a bridge too far. The Daily Beast reports Defense Secretary Ash Carter has reopened the Petraeus case to consider stripping the hero of one or two of his four stars in retirement.
As CIA director, Petraeus shared classified notebooks with his biographer/mistress, who also had security clearance. No classified intel appeared in the book, “All In.”
Petraeus was allowed to plead guilty to unauthorized handling of classified intelligence, fined $100,000 and put on two years’ probation.
The FBI is said to be investigating Hillary Clinton’s sharing of more than 1,300 classified documents with God-knows-who all on her unsecured private email server, despite repeated warnings and subsequent obfuscations.
But, hey, she’s a Democrat, the best one to preserve Obama’s legacy. Don’t hold your breath for an indictment from an Obama Justice Department.
Petraeus erred. He confessed. He didn’t attempt to parse his way out like Hillary and Bill. Let’s recall what the general accomplished before his misdemeanor plea: 37 years in the Army, creating and implementing under two presidents the surge strategy that snatched Iraq victory from defeat, ran Central Command, accepted Obama’s request to take a demotion to run his Afghan war, then accepted Obama’s request to quit his military career and run the CIA.
The real goal is a Chicago-style warning flare to any retiring military to keep your mouth shut. And don’t testify before the Benghazi committee, as Petraeus just did.
Even Stalin would blush. I wonder if Barry is planning to give Hillary a pardon to ‘Fireproof’ her?
