This vile woman’s political career is finished. She just doesn’t know it yet.
Despite Hillary Rodham Clinton’s denials that she sent government secrets via her personal e-mail account, the State Department has already identified 60 messages containing classified info, according to a report.
State Department investigators found one e-mail containing classified information of an intermediate level, while the rest were at the lowest level of government confidentiality, an unnamed official told The Washington Times in a report published on Sunday.
The official said it will take months for State Department investigators to sift through the 30,000 work e-mails sent from Clinton’s home server.
Clinton on Saturday insisted she did not knowingly transmit classified material, and chalked up the investigations to right-wing attacks.
“I never sent classified material on my e-mail, and I never received any that was marked classified,” she said.
How’s that nonsense working out, Grandma?
Now the FBI is investigating the extent to which the former secretary of state may have sent, received and stored classified documents on her “home brew’’ e-mail serverand other private devices — potentially compromising government security. Sources told The Post that this amounts to a “criminal probe,” but Hillary insisted while campaigning in Iowa Saturday that “I never sent classified material on my e-mail, and I never received any that was marked classified.”
Last week, Hillary turned over to the feds three thumb drives stored in her lawyer’s office, plus her e-mail server, which had been wiped clean.
“You may have seen that I recently launched a Snapchat account,” Hillary joked at a campaign appearance in Iowa Saturday, Business Insider reported. “I love it. I love it. Those messages disappear all by themselves.”
She blamed the e-mail fracas on “politics” — meaning Republican haters. How long can she laugh this off?
We’re laughing at her, not with her. Meanwhile, there may well be a backup server for these secret emails, which is very, very bad news.
So, Hillary’s refusal to turn over the original wiped server appears to have been something of a mislead, as I explained in Hillary refusal to turn over server for months may have led people off the trail.
There had to be a second server or at least database somewhere with all the emails in undeleted form. That was the only consistent story, though it was not the story Hillary or her attorneys were telling.
But it was the story I thought had to be the case.
And we may be inching closer to that reality, as Jon Karl at ABC News reports that Platte River Networks has informed the federal government that there likely is a backup of the server:
