It appears that the Washington machine intelligence community has determined that some of Clinton’s emails are “too damaging” to national security that they cannot be released to the American public. This begs the question, if they are too damaging for Americans to see, why has the intelligence community not arrested Mrs. Clinton?
FOX News reports:
The intelligence community has deemed some of Hillary Clinton’s emails “too damaging” to national security to release under any circumstances, according to a U.S. government official close to the ongoing review. A second source, who was not authorized to speak on the record, backed up the finding.
The determination was first reported by Fox News, hours before the State Department formally announced Friday that seven email chains, found in 22 documents, will be withheld “in full” because they, in fact, contain “Top Secret” information.
The State Department, when first contacted by Fox News about withholding such emails Friday morning, did not dispute the reporting – but did not comment in detail. After a version of this report was first published, the Obama administration confirmed to the Associated Press that the seven email chains would be withheld. The department has since confirmed those details publicly.
The decision to withhold the documents in full, and not provide even a partial release with redactions, further undercuts claims by the State Department and the Clinton campaign that none of the intelligence in the emails was classified when it hit Clinton’s personal server.
Again, I ask, since it has been verified that Hillary Clinton has broken the law and has put America’s national security at risk, why is she still in the running for the presidency? Why has neither Congress nor the intelligence community issued a warrant for her arrest? Why has Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah not arrested her? OK, we can cut to the chase on this one. It’s because they are corrupt. They are just as guilty in their complicity in politicizing Clinton’s crimes as she is in engaging in them! There, I said it.
And yes, for those of you still toeing the party lines of Democrat good, Republican bad, it’s on both of the people in these parties. Forgive me, but I don’t rant often. I’m sick of the politicizing. We have law. We have but one Constitution. Clinton is neither lawful nor constitutional. And those who are elected to represent the people who continue to flap their jaws, but bring no justice or resolve to her crimes are just as complicit in those crimes as she is. End rant.
In an attempt at damage control, The Washington Post reports:
The finding is likely to complicate Clinton’s efforts to move past the controversy, which has dragged down her poll ratings in her bid for the Democratic presidential nomination. And it comes as her potential Republican rivals have called for Clinton to be prosecuted for what they say was her mishandling of national secrets.
In responding Friday, Clinton’s campaign took the unusual step of criticizing the intelligence community, accusing spy agencies of engaging in “overclassification run amok.” Some Clinton allies suggested that intelligence officials were politically motivated.
Clinton’s spokesman, Brian Fallon, presented the findings as the latest turn in an ongoing struggle between government officials over whether to retroactively classify emails that were not marked as sensitive when they were sent and that Clinton thinks should be made public.
“After a process that has been dominated by bureaucratic infighting tshat has too often played out in public view, the loudest and leakiest participants in this interagency dispute have now prevailed in blocking any release of these emails,” Fallon said. “This flies in the face of the fact that these emails were unmarked at the time they were sent, and have been called ‘innocuous’ by certain intelligence officials.”
Fallon told MSNBC that withholding the emails from view in their entirety made it impossible for the public to independently judge the validity of the State Department’s conclusion.
Republican rivals have called for her to be prosecuted? Why didn’t they prosecute her while she was in office? They suspected these things early on. Why did they not act? Oh, wait, they wanted to politicize her crimes in this year’s elections.
Seriously, I can’t trust Republicans vying for my vote (which they won’t get) any more than I can Democrats, including Hillary, vying for my vote (which they won’t get). Neither Republicans nor Democrats have brought resolve concerning Obama and his crimes, Eric Holder and his crimes, Loretta Lynch and her crimes, nor Hillary Clinton and her crimes. Yet, they still have their hand out for Americans’ votes, as if they will follow the Constitution and bring justice. Fat chance!
