On "Special Report" Monday night, Fox News revealed a newly surfaced video it obtained showing a State Department employee back in 2013 touting how then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was sending information on her BlackBerry "that would never be on an unclassified system."
The video (starts around 1:30 mark above) features State Department employee Wendy Sherman speaking to the American Foreign Service Association about the game-changing way Sec. Clinton was using her BlackBerry. Through her phone, Sherman explains, Clinton and her staff could share all kinds of information, including highly sensitive info.
"Now we have BlackBerries, and it has changed the way diplomacy is done," Sherman said enthusiastically. "Things appear on your BlackBerries that would never be on an unclassified system. But you're out traveling, you're trying to negotiate something. You want to communicate with people, it's the fastest way to do it."
As an example, Sherman explained that in September 2011 Clinton was able to use her BlackBerry to conduct important Israeli-Palestinian negotiations with the EU's Catherine Ashton.
"So [Hillary Clinton and Lady Ashton] sat there, as they were having the meeting, with their BlackBerries, transferring language back and forth between them and between their aides to multitask in a quite a new fashion," said Sherman. "To have the meeting and at the same time be working on the [Middle East] Quartet statement."
The American Rising PAC notes that "the emails Sherman references have appeared in State Department releases of Clinton’s emails and the information has been designated classified with the following codes:1.4 (b) Foreign government information [and] 1.4 (d) Foreign relations or foreign activities of the United States, including confidential sources."
