Hillary's buried in e-mails


Hillary Clinton's e-mail scandal is not going away.

In part, it continues to be a story because she lied about it and continues lying.

Anita Kumar (MCCLATCHY NEWSPAPERS) writes:

 Hillary Clinton blamed Republicans Sunday for using her decision to use personal email while secretary of state against her and her presidential campaign.
“I cannot control what the Republicans leak and what they are contending,” Clinton said on NBC’s Meet the Press.

Don't call that reporting.

Thursday, when the Clinton campaign's Karen Finney appeared on CNN NEWSROOM, Brooke Baldwin pushed back against these claims asking, "What is your proof of that?"

Anita Kumar needs no proof.

She's not interested in journalism, just propaganda.

Last week, Intelligence Community Inspector General Charles McCullough's letter to the Senate Intelligence and Foreign Relations Committees went public -- in it he noted that Hillary's server contained e-mails which went beyond the top secret classification.

Here's how Nancy Cordes and Rebecca Kaplan (CBS NEWS) reported the news:

Hillary Clinton's private email server contained information that was classified at a higher level than "top secret," the inspector general of the intelligence community told members of Congress in a letter obtained by CBS News.
The server Clinton used as secretary of state contained "several dozen emails containing classified information determined by the [intelligence community] element to be at the CONFIDENTIAL, SECRET, and TOP SECRET/SAP levels," the inspector general, Charles McCullough, wrote in the letter, which was first reported by Fox News. "SAP" stands for special access programs, which carry a classification level higher than top secret.
Former CIA Director David Petraeus was sentenced to two years' probation and fined $100,000 for sharing similarly classified information with Paula Broadwell, his biographer and mistress.

More than any other politicians, the Clintons pioneered the ignore-the-charge-attack-the-source 'response.'

It's a distraction.

It's a way of avoiding going on the record.

It's what liars do.

Deroy Murdock (UNION LEADER) observes:

WHEN HILLARY CLINTON’S email scandal erupted last March, fair-minded people might have given her the benefit of the doubt. Distracted and perhaps overeager, the spanking-new secretary of state plowed into her duties and had her staff divert emails to her home-based computer server. This would be more convenient, she claimed, and would let her avoid the hassle of schlepping multiple hand-held devices. Besides, “there is no classified material” on her server, she soothed journalists covering this matter. “I did not receive nor send anything that was classified,” she said reassuringly last July.
Things are now so much worse than they first appeared.
If a bumbling Clinton had let a smattering of classified emails land on her unsecured server, one might overlook an occasional slip up or two. However, the State Department so far has identified from Clinton’s private server at least 1,340 emails that contain classified data. This was not two or three or even 10 such emails, but one thousand three hundred and forty of them. The final tranche of Clinton’s emails should arrive Jan. 29, most likely featuring even more emails brimming with state secrets.

As Alex Griswold (MEDIAITE) notes, former US Secretary of Defense Robert Gates declared on radio last week that he believes Iran and Russia accessed Hillary's e-mails.  And THE BLAZE reports, "Former Attorney General Michael Mukasey is calling for criminal charges to be brought against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for the mishandling of classified information."

No, the e-mail scandal is not over.
