Clinton Ordered Her Maid to Print Out Classified Documents

Hillary Clinton habitually used her Filipino maid to print out sensitive government emails and documents, Paul Sperry of the New York Post reported Sunday based on his review of Wikileaks emails and FBI memos. And even though Marina Santos had zero security clearance, she was allowed to handle documents that were marked classified. She was also apparently given access to the SCIF (sensitive compartmented information facility) that was set up in Clinton's D.C. residence.

Shockingly, neither the FBI nor Congress has bothered to formerly interview Santos as a key witness in the investigation, even though Clinton, and sometimes Huma Abedin, routinely called on her to print sensitive emails.

Clinton entrusted far more than the care of her DC residence, known as Whitehaven, to Santos. She expected the Filipino immigrant to handle state secrets, further opening the Democratic presidential nominee to criticism that she played fast and loose with national security.

Clinton would first receive highly sensitive e-mails from top aides at the State Department and then request that they, in turn, forward the messages and any attached documents to Santos to print out for her at the home.

Among other things, Clinton requested Santos print out drafts of her speeches, confidential memos and “call sheets” — background information and talking points prepared for the secretary of state [sic] in advance of a phone call with a foreign head of state.

“Pls ask Marina to print for me in am,” Clinton e-mailed top aide Huma Abedin regarding a redacted 2011 message marked sensitive but unclassified.

In a classified 2012 e-mail dealing with the new president of Malawi, another Clinton aide, Monica Hanley, advised Clinton, “We can ask Marina to print this.”

“Revisions to the Iran points” was the subject line of a classified April 2012 e-mail to Clinton from Hanley. In it, the text reads, “Marina is trying to print for you.”

Both classified e-mails were marked “confidential,” the tier below “secret” or “top secret.”
