Despite major damage-control mode, Hillary Clinton’s consistently fluid email story seems to be heading toward the proverbial dam. After U.S. intelligence agencies identified additional classified emails on HRC’s private server, including ones containing intelligence on covert “Special Access Programs,” Mrs. Clinton’s campaign “even accused the inspector general — an Obama appointee confirmed by a Democratic-controlled Senate — of engaging in a ‘coordinated leak’ with Republicans ‘for the purposes of hurting her campaign’,” reports Marc A. Thiessen in The Washington Post.
Having that kind of super-sensitive, codeword-protected, compartmented information on her unsecured server in her Chappaqua, N.Y., basement put U.S. national security in grave danger — because foreign powers could easily hack into her system and get it. In August, NBC News reported that “China’s cyber spies have accessed the private emails of ‘many’ top Obama administration officials . . . and have been doing so since at least April 2010. The email grab — first codenamed ‘Dancing Panda’ by U.S. officials, and then ‘Legion Amethyst’ — was detected in April 2010 . . . [and] is still going on.” We also know that Russian hackers successfully penetrated the State Department’s computer systems. Does anyone believe they did not target Clinton’s unsecured private server as well? It would be a miracle if the intelligence on her server was not currently in the hands of foreign intelligence services.
Read here why Mr. Thiessen believes that Mrs. Clinton, a government official discussing super sensitive information on a private, unsecured email server, committed a criminal offense.
