The FBI released a huge document drop of this summer’s Hillary email probe over the holiday weekend in hopes nobody would notice the politically damaging information those documents contain.
It turns out, not only was Hillary Clinton unconcerned with sending classified emails, she isn’t really sure how things get classified in the first place.
Asked specifically about several emails that were marked classified at the time she handled them, Mrs. Clinton said told investigators she was “not concerned,” saying she doubted the information really needed to be kept secret.
As State Department secretary, Mrs. Clinton was one of the small number of officials who hold original classification authority, meaning they can unilaterally deem information secret. But Mrs. Clinton told FBI investigators she couldn’t recall how often she used it, nor whether she was even trained.
“Clinton could not give an example of how classification of a document was determined,” the investigators said in the notes of their interview, which was released along with other parts of the investigative file.
It gets worse.
And when asked specifically about emails with paragraphs marked with a “(C)” designating classified information, the former first lady, senator and top diplomat said she thought they denoted an alphabetical ordering, not secrets.
Come on, man.
This lack of respect for the protocol surrounding information critical to the national security of the United States is inexcusable. Hillary Clinton is either ignorant when it comes to the proper way to handle classified information, or she is lying.
Either way, she is unfit to be the commander-in-chief of our armed forces.
