Inspector General finds Hillary Clinton’s emails include some which were above ‘top secret’

January 19, 2016

  Hillary Clinton has been claiming ever since the email scandal broke that she neither sent nor received any emails which contained confidential information. (Of course she is ignoring that certain emails are born classified even if they are not marked as such.)

  Now Inspector General I. Charles McCullough III has sent a letter to the Congress which debunks the former Secretary of State’s rather flimsy defense. He claims that not only did some of the emails contain classified information but that some of the emails contain information which is above top secret.

  Here is more:

Hillary Clinton’s emails on her unsecured, homebrew server contained intelligence from the U.S. government’s most secretive and highly classified programs, according to an unclassified letter from a top inspector general to senior lawmakers.

Fox News exclusively obtained the unclassified letter, sent Jan. 14 from Intelligence Community Inspector General I. Charles McCullough III. It laid out the findings of a recent comprehensive review by intelligence agencies that identified “several dozen” additional classified emails — including specific intelligence known as “special access programs” (SAP).  

That indicates a level of classification beyond even “top secret,” the label previously given to two emails found on her server, and brings even more scrutiny to the presidential candidate’s handling of the government’s closely held secrets.

“To date, I have received two sworn declarations from one [intelligence community] element. These declarations cover several dozen emails containing classified information determined by the IC element to be at the confidential, secret, and top secret/sap levels,” said the IG letter to lawmakers with oversight of the intelligence community and State Department. “According to the declarant, these documents contain information derived from classified IC element sources.”

Intelligence from a “special access program,” or SAP, is even more sensitive than that designated as “top secret” – as were two emails identified last summer in a random sample pulled from Clinton’s private server she used as secretary of state. Access to a SAP is restricted to those with a “need-to-know” because exposure of the intelligence would likely reveal the source, putting a method of intelligence collection — or a human asset — at risk. Currently, some 1,340 emails designated “classified” have been found on Clinton’s server, though the Democratic presidential candidate insists the information was not classified at the time.

  And to top it off there is no way a person, especially the smartest woman in America, would not understand that the information in these emails was not identifiable as being sensitive information:

“There is absolutely no way that one could not recognize SAP material,” a former senior law enforcement with decades of experience investigating violations of SAP procedures told Fox News. “It is the most sensitive of the sensitive.”

   If this report is true than either Hillary Clinton is lying or she is incompetent. I do not know which one is worse but either way she is unfit for the office she is seeking because it is clear that she cannot be trusted with the nation’s secrets.
