Clinton Emails Held Info On “Most Secretive and Highly Classified” Government Programs

Today, new details have emerged on the kind of information held on Hillary Clinton’s illicit, private email server. We already know that at least two emails were classified “top secret,” but a report from Fox today describes new details on “special access programs.”

That information is only available to the President and select members of his Cabinet. Yet, even though the “exposure of [SAP] intelligence would likely reveal the source, putting a method of intelligence collection — or a human asset — at risk,” Clinton keep it on an unsecured, private server. With this news, the fact that countries such as China tried hacking her private server takes on an ominous new dimension.

Just this weekend, Clinton also denied speaking to the FBI about her email arrangements. Yet, these new details seem likely to change that. As Fox News reports, the transgressions that led to General Petraeus’ indictment are also found in the Clinton case. They report that:

According to court documents, former CIA Director David Petraeus was prosecuted for sharing intelligence from special access programs with his biographer and mistress Paula Broadwell. At the heart of his prosecution was a non-disclosure agreement where Petraeus agreed to protect these closely held government programs, with the understanding “unauthorized disclosure, unauthorized retention or negligent handling … could cause irreparable injury to the United States or be used to advantage by a foreign nation.” Clinton signed an identical non-disclosure agreement Jan. 22, 2009.

With these new developments, along with her continued fall in the polls, Clinton is already having another horrible week on the presidential trail.
