Didn't Obama say back around March that he found out about Hillary's email from the news? Another lie?

22 Clinton Emails Deemed Too Classified to Be Made Public


WASHINGTON — The State Department on Friday said for the first time that “top secret” material had been sent through Hillary Clinton’s private computer server, and that it would not make public 22 of her emails because they contained highly classified information.

The department announced that 18 emails exchanged between Mrs. Clinton and President Obama would also be withheld, citing the longstanding practice of preserving presidential communications for future release. The department’s spokesman, John Kirby, said that exchanges did not involve classified information.

The disclosure of the top secret emails, three days before Iowans vote in the first-in-the-nation caucuses, is certain to fuel the political debate over the unclassified computer server that Mrs. Clinton, the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination, kept in her home. The State Department released another set of her emails on Friday night in response to a Freedom of Information Act request.

The top secret emails lent credence to criticism by Mrs. Clinton’s rivals in the presidential race of her handling of classified information while she was secretary of state from 2009 to 2013. It is against the law for officials to discuss classified information on unclassified networks used for routine business or on private servers, and the F.B.I. is looking into whether such information was mishandled.

The State Department said it had “upgraded” the classification of the emails at the request of the nation’s intelligence agencies. Mr. Kirby said that none of the emails had been marked at any level of classification at the time they were sent through Mrs. Clinton’s computer server.

Mrs. Clinton’s campaign responded forcefully, saying that the process of reviewing the emails “appears to be over-classification run amok.” A spokesman, Brian Fallon, said all of the emails should be released.

“We understand that these emails were likely originated on the State Department’s unclassified system before they were ever shared with Secretary Clinton, and they have remained on the department’s unclassified system for years,” Mr. Fallon said.

Neither Mr. Kirby nor other officials would discuss the emails now being withheld, but the classified emails include those cited in a letter sent to the Senate on Jan. 14 by the inspector general of the nation’s intelligence agencies, I. Charles McCullough III.

Mr. McCullough wrote that “several dozen emails” contained classified information, including some now determined to contain information at the “top secret/S.A.P.” level. That designation refers to “special access programs,” which are among the government’s most closely guarded secrets.

If the prez, who obviously wrote to Hillary via email, can't look at the email address to determine if it is going to state.gov vs.  hotmail .com or whatever she used.....he is either a dumb --- or a lying one.

It's kinda hard to see how Hilly can say she has no responsiblity for the fact that this info was on a hard drive in her bathroom!      Access to this information is based on.....

  • Accepts all obligations of protecting classified information;
  • Acknowledges receipt of security indoctrination. The indoctrination hi-lights obligations and future obligations and enforcing access and need to    know;
  • Is advised of implications to national security in the event of unauthorized disclosure, unauthorized retention, or negligent handling of SAP information to those without access and need to know;
  • Submits all writings for security review if they contain any SAP information or descriptions of activities related to SAP information. If the case, then the US Government responds to submission of material within a reasonable time, not to exceed 30 working days from date of receipt;
  • Understands that personal repercussions for breaches of the agreement can result in termination of access, removal from a position of special confidence and trust and that the United States has the right to prosecute for any statutory violation;
  • Accepts that all information based on access will remain the property of the United States Government; and
  • Understands that all conditions and obligations imposed by the Agreement apply when access is granted and for all time afterward.

    Hillary knew what she was doing and really she needed to do it based on her travel and comms situation.  She knew that she would be erasing her hard drive so she wasn't as careful as she should have been.  And ole barack.....caught lying again to the American public.

    Ayep, he sure did.


    President Obama discovered former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of personal email at the same time as news readers.

    Obama, after delivering a Saturday speech in Selma, Ala., was asked when he found out about Clinton’s personal email system run from her Chappaqua home.

    The same time everybody else learned it through news reports,” he told CBS News.

    Obama waded into the controversy for the first time since Clinton’s use of a private email account was revealed last week — raising questions about whether key messages were preserved.

    Clinton’s use of the “clintonemail.com” address drew widespread criticism from Republicans. The revelation has come at a delicate time for Clinton, who is preparing to launch a second bid for the presidency in the coming weeks.

    The President called Clinton a “great Secretary of State” and insisted that his administration encouraged transparency.
