Hillary Clinton may be headed to jail – and if she does, she wants you to know it’s going to be all the fault of the vast right wing conspiracy. Yes, even though the executive branch is controlled by her former boss Barack Obama, the real problem is unspecified conservatives illegally leaking information to the press.
On Tuesday, Fox News reported that Hillary Clinton’s private server contained intelligence “from the US government’s most secretive and highly classified programs, according to an unclassified letter from a top inspector general to senior lawmakers.” Their report continued:
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.
In fact, NBC News reports that McCullough and his aides “had to receive clearance to be read in on it before viewing the sworn declaration about the Clinton emails.” In other words, Hillary’s top secret emails were so top secret that even those charged with investigating her breaches had to increase their clearances to view the material.
Hillary originally said that the classified emails weren’t classified when she saw them, and were only labeled thus later – but as Catherine Herridge of Fox news says, the terms “retroactively classified” or “upgraded” are “meaningless under federal law.”
But Hillary has a ready-made excuse: it’s Rush Limbaugh’s fault. Or something.
Hillary spokesman Brian Fallon actually told NBC News Clinton lackey Andrea Mitchell that the IG leaked the information to the GOP selectively to hurt Clinton. Fallon told CNN, “I think this was a very coordinated leak yesterday.” Fallon admitted he had no evidence, and instead offered a theory that McCullough didn’t like press coverage of him months ago, “So I think that he put two Republican senators up to sending him a letter so that he would have an excuse to resurface the same allegations he made back in the summer that have been discredited.”
The Intelligence Community IG spokeswoman said that Clinton’s accusations “are not substantively related to our oversight responsibilities.”
This is the problem with being a paranoid control freak, as Hillary is: every accusation is merely more evidence that they’re out to get you. Or, as Hillary Clinton reportedly screamed at Barack Obama after asking him to call off his “f***ing dogs,” “There are always haters out there to get the Clintons.”
The haters could be in law enforcement. They could be old flames of Bill’s. They could be Bill’s alleged rape and sexual harassment victims. They could be anywhere, anyone, at any time.
Here’s the irony: Hillary is so paranoid about her domestic enemies that she put classified information on a server vulnerable to our foreign enemies. Which means that she worries less about Russia and China than about Fox News. Is that who Americans should trust with the nuclear codes?
