The headline number is that there are now 60 emails to or from Hillary Clinton’s private server containing classified information. But 60 out of 30,000 doesn’t seem like that many — except really it’s nearly 60 out of 60.
Among the first 60 flagged emails, nearly all contained classified secrets at the lowest level of “confidential” and one contained information at the intermediate level of “secret,” officials told the Times.
Those 60 emails do not include two emails identified in recent days by Intelligence Community Inspector General I. Charles McCullough III as containing “top-secret” information possibly derived from Pentagon satellites, drones or intercepts, which is some of the nation’s most sensitive secrets.
At the risk of repeating myself, I’ll repeat myself: Hillary Clinton belongs in jail.
Not one thing she has said about her illegal private server is true — it’s been nothing but lies and evasions for four months. Furthermore, it is virtually unimaginable that the Russians and/or Chinese hadn’t compromised her lackadaisical security, meaning that fully four years’ worth of confidential and classified emails to and from the U.S. secretary of State are in foreign hands.
Even if we were to stipulate that no crime was committed or intended, or at least acknowledge that the Obama administration’s Department of Justice would never bring charges against a high-ranking Democrat, the fact that Clinton’s official correspondence has almost certainly been compromised due entirely to bad judgement on her part ought to disqualify her from any public office — forever.
Instead she remains what she was: The far-and-away frontrunner for the top of the Democratic Party’s presidential ticket.
