Federalist: Hillary Intentionally Sent Highly Classified Information Via Email

Richard Nixon said many of the same things when Watergate was originally being slowly, slowly revealed. That didn’t work out too well for him. This is not going to work out too well for Hillary, per Sean Davis at The Federalist

Hillary Intentionally Originated And Distributed Highly Classified Information

A review of recently released e-mails shows that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton repeatedly originated and distributed highly classified national security information. Clinton’s classified e-mail missives were not constrained to State Department staff, either. She also sent classified information to Sidney Blumenthal, a former Clinton White House operative banned by the Obama White House.

An analysis by The Federalist of e-mails released by the State Department late Monday shows that scores of e-mails sent by Clinton contained highly confidential national security information from the beginning, even if they weren’t marked by a classification authority until later.

The original date of classification of Hillary’s e-mails can be discerned by noting the declassification dates noted next to redactions in the e-mails. Under a 2009 executive order signed by President Barack Obama, classified material in most circumstances is to be automatically declassified after 10 years. In some instances, that duration may be extended up to 25 years. In certain circumstances, classification authorities may adjust the classification duration based on the nature of the underlying information.

Many of the emails were mostly or completely redacted, hence, classified and/or confidential business. Some of it deals with foreign affairs, information that, while not “classified”, is not meant for open dissemination. And there are many, many examples, which can be seen at the Federalist.

These are exactly the kinds of things which would, at a minimum, cause a lower level federal employee to lose their security clearance. They could further be fined and/or prosecuted. Even jailed. Will Hillary be held to the same standard?

Let’s not forget that Democrats fantasized about Karl Rove being frogmarched out of the White House in handcuffs over the release of Valerie Plame’s name, of George Bush being impeached, despite Plame not being a field operative for the CIA, and her husband telling people that she worked for the CIA. Here you have Hillary breaking the law, not too mention intentionally doing everything she could to avoid oversight and freedom of information act requests.
