The e-mail scandal stretches far beyond Hillary

Oops: Hillary Clinton wasn’t the only Obama official who failed to understand that you don’t send sensitive information via unprotected e-mail.

The State Department has confirmed that Clinton’s successor as secretary of state, John Kerry, sent her a message, now deemed secret, from his personal e-mail account.

At the time (May 2011), Kerry chaired the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, with access to top-level secrets. But since Kerry sent the message, he presumably knew Hillary also wasn’t using a government e-mail address.

Same for President Obama: He claims he first learned about Clinton’s private e-mail address from news accounts — but it turns out he and Hillary exchanged at least 18 ­e-mails, which State refuses to make public.

Uh-oh: What did the president know, and when did he know it?

As National Review’s Andrew McCarthy notes, Gen. David Petraeus was convicted for keeping journal records of, among other things, his discussions with the president.

And though Hillary now argues that none of her e-mails were marked classified at the time, neither were Petraeus’ journals.

Full story.
