Yes, Hillary’s Emails Had Classified Material

It’s undeniable. She broke the law multiple times.

NEW YORK (Reuters) – For months, the U.S. State Department has stood behind its former boss Hillary Clinton as she has repeatedly said she did not send or receive classified information on her unsecured, private email account, a practice the government forbids.

While the department is now stamping a few dozen of the publicly released emails as “Classified,” it stresses this is not evidence of rule-breaking. Those stamps are new, it says, and do not mean the information was classified when Clinton, the Democratic frontrunner in the 2016 presidential election, first sent or received it.

But the details included in those “Classified” stamps — which include a string of dates, letters and numbers describing the nature of the classification — appear to undermine this account, a Reuters examination of the emails and the relevant regulations has found.

The new stamps indicate that some of Clinton’s emails from her time as the nation’s most senior diplomat are filled with a type of information the U.S. government and the department’s own regulations automatically deems classified from the get-go — regardless of whether it is already marked that way or not.

    Undeniable ?

    Maybe to a partisan

    We’ll see !

    The mere act of using a private server was illegal. There’s nothing partisan about it.

  3. Steve Austin

    In her few media appearances still have not heard someone ask her whether or not her email contained things that would have been appropriate to run through an unsecure server. With a follow up of why did she feel it was “safe” for her to not use a govt. account that presumably would have been much more locked down.

    And did President Obama or Valerie Jarrett ever send her emails direct to her personal email account.

    GOP needs to focus a bit less on legal angle and force her into discussion of whether she is stupid or corrupt or both for doing this.

    Like I said , we’ll see.

    The Clintons have escaped ” mere acts of illegality ” in the past .

    It my least favorite thing about them.

    In the end , they win and the know it all Right pounds sand

    If not , Elizabeth Warren or Joe can beat anyone in the Clown losing men and winning every other group overwhelmingly

    Just like Obama did – twice

    The sooner we find out about Hillary , the sooner we know who the next President will be

    The question I have is this:
    If Hillary did not use her private server for communication and saving classified and top secret information, then where did she send her classified and top secret information?
    A government server?
    Her own server?
    Or maybe she was not trusted to handle classify and top secret information?
