BREAKING: Clinton Double Downs On Classified Material Lie
Even after FBI Director James Comey’s stern rebuke of Hillary Clinton and the “careless” culture at the State Department, the former Secretary of State still hasn’t learned. While she will now admit that having an illicit, private email server was a “mistake,” she is fine with lying to the American people about basic facts connected with her email server.
This afternoon, Clinton spoke with CNN and MSNBC about Director Comey’s statements earlier this week on her private email server. On both networks, she was pressed on Comey’s charge that Clinton’s email server housed 110 emails that contained classified and “top secret” material on her unsecure server. Comey’s disclosure has led the Washington Post to revise upward their fact check of Clinton’s past claim on classified material:
“Moreover, Comey directly contradicted Clinton’s claim that she did not send or receive materials “marked” classified: ‘Separately, it is important to say something about the marking of classified information. Only a very small number of the emails containing classified information bore markings indicating the presence of classified information. But even if information is not marked ‘classified’ in an email, participants who know or should know that the subject matter is classified are still obligated to protect it.’ In light of this information, we updated the original Two Pinocchio rating to Four Pinocchios.”
Incredibly, this did not stop Clinton from lying on two separate cable networks this afternoon. Incomprehensibly, she is still maintaining that she never sent or received classified material on her private email server as Secretary of State:
Clinton also showed once again how opposed she is to transparency. The State Department has re-opened their investigation of Clinton’s email practices as Secretary of State. Yet, Clinton still will not commit to cooperating with that investigation:
When you combined Clinton’s awful interviews with the news that Clinton could possibly face a perjury investigation over her Congressional testimony, it once again underscores that the Clinton email scandal is here to stay.
