“Top Secret” is the highest possible security ranking.
I have already mentioned that we have good reason to believe that the Clinton emails contain classified information. The State Department had to slow down the release of the emails to make sure they did not release classified information on them.
But now the Miami Herald reports an even more serious breach: “‘Top Secret’ emails found as Clinton probe expands to key aides.”
As pressure builds on Hillary Clinton to explain her official use of personal email while serving as secretary of state, she faced new complications Tuesday. It was disclosed her top aides are being drawn into a burgeoning federal inquiry and that two emails on her private account have been classified as “Top Secret.”
The inspector general for the Intelligence Community notified senior members of Congress that two of four classified emails discovered on the server Clinton maintained at her New York home contained material deemed to be in one of the highest security classifications – more sensitive than previously known.
The notice came as the State Department inspector general’s office acknowledged that it is reviewing the use of “personal communications hardware and software” by Clinton’s former top aides after requests from Congress.
“We will follow the facts wherever they lead, to include former aides and associates, as appropriate,” said Douglas Welty, a spokesman for the State Department’s inspector general.
If the State Department is being so cooperative with the Republicans, this would be more evidence that the Obama wing of the Democratic Party is at war with the Clinton wing. The State Department knows they could stonewall Congress and get away with it. If the IRS can evade any consequences for Lois Lerner’s missing hard drive, and the Department of Justice can get away with “Fast and Furious,” we can be certain that the State Department has nothing to fear from Congress or the courts.
The only logical conclusion is that the State Department wants to pursue a case against Clinton.
