Hillary 'Snowden' Clinton [With a Jan. 20, UPDATE]

On July 24, 2015 the inspector general of the intelligence community testified that 10%  [4 out of 40] of the e-mails sampled from the e-mails Hillary Clinton sent over her personal e-mail server contained classified information.

From the NY Post:  "The e-mails “were classified when they were sent and are classified now,” IG spokesman Andrea William told the Wall Street Journal."  "Although the documents didn’t have classified markings on them at the time they were sent, “some included classified information and should have been handled as classified, appropriately marked, and transmitted via a secure network,” Inspector General Charles McCullough wrote lawmakers Thursday."

This from the NY Times on July 24, 2015:  "WASHINGTON — Government investigators said Friday that they had discovered classified information on the private email account that Hillary Rodham Clinton used while secretary of state, stating unequivocally that those secrets never should have been stored outside of secure government computer systems."

Liar, liar pantsuit's on fire
Now today, Friday, July 31, the State Department has released more of Hillary Clinton's e-mails and dozens of which have been deemed to contain information that was classified.  We know it contained classified information because there were many redactions that weren't allowed to be seen because that information was classified as secret, not to be released.

This from Fox News Online, July 31, 2015:  "The State Department has released a new batch of Hillary Clinton emails, which according to a source contain more information that was retroactively classified.  A source with knowledge of the release told Fox News that about 25 emails in the latest release will contain text that has been redacted for classified information reasons."

Hillary is gleaning on to the fact that the information she sent out over her personal insecure e-mail server wasn't marked classified at the time, so that means she didn't lie about not sending out classified information, because it was only classified after she sent it out.

But what kind of defense is that?  Think about what Hillary is saying.  Even if you believe totally her laughable story on why she used her personal e-mail server, and if you totally believe her that she sent out information that wasn't secret or classified [at the time], how incompetent and stupid does this make Hillary Clinton, who was the Secretary of State at the time, that she didn't realize that information she sent out was important enough that it could possibly be deemed as classified secret information.  My Lord, she was the Secretary of State of the United States.  And she sent that information, not on a secure government State Department server, but on one [that is of dubious security level] in her own home.

There are only two conclusions possible with the proof that Hillary Clinton did indeed send out classified information on her personal e-mail server, violating State Department rules: 

1. She lied when she said she didn't send out the classified information or 2. She wasn't smart enough to realize that some of the information she sent out when Secretary of State was important enough [and for internal eyes only] that it could be deemed classified. 

I will let you decide which classification Hillary falls in, but in either case, in my opinion, this disqualifies Hillary Clinton from being the commander in chief of the United States of America.

Edward Snowden, a computer analyst, who is now residing in Russia, has been deemed a traitor by some pundits for intentionally releasing classified information of U.S. NSA programs to foreign governments.

Hillary Clinton is certainly not a traitor and what she did wasn't as bad as what Edward Snowden did, but if any of her e-mails were hacked from her personal server the result could be the same. 

Secret United States classified information that she held on her server could be in the hands of foreign governments.  No, Hillary Clinton may not have wanted that to happen and she didn't release the information intentionally, but if we ever find out in the future that some of Hillary's e-mails that contained the classified information is in the hands of our enemies, shouldn't Hillary Rodham Clinton then be deemed as Hillary Snowden Clinton?
Breaking News UPDATE: August 17, 2015:  It has just come out that top secret classified e-mails have been found on Clinton's e-mail server and she has been forced to turn over her server to the DOJ.  

Are the Democrats really going to hand the GOP the gift of a Hillary Clinton candidacy in 2016?  Or as the great quipster Greg Gutfeld joked on The Five, "What's more likely, Hillary being in the White House or the big house?"
This e-mail episode [euphemism for scandal] is just one more reason why I believe Hillary wins the Tales honor of being deemed not once, not twice, but three times a liar:

UPDATE:  Jan. 20, 2016:  It has been confirmed the last couple of days that Hillary Clinton's private server contained the highest of national security classified e-mails, which many knowledgeable people have speculated that Hillary Clinton could very well [and should] be indicted.   

This from CNN-Jan. 20, 2016:  "The emails on Hillary Clinton's private server contained classified intelligence from some of the U.S. intelligence community's most secretive programs, according to a new report.  The Intelligence Community Inspector General I. Charles McCullough III sent a letter to leaders on congressional intelligence committees last week detailing the findings from a review of Clinton's emails, a spokeswoman for the inspector general confirmed to CNN."

This is very damaging news, I believe, for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign and for the Democrats who now have to seriously consider if they can afford to nominate someone who could very well be indicted.  

How bad is what Hillary Clinton did?  You will find out, and also see how prescient this Tales post is, when you listen to the words of Dr. Charles Krauthammer on Bret Baier's Special Report panel on Jan. 19, 2016:

I have called the presidential candidate on the Democrat side Hillary 'Snowden' Clinton.  After hearing what Dr. Charles Krauthammer said, I may have to apologize to Edward Snowden.

Very appropriate comparison big mike, i don't think you have to be a conservative to appreciate the comparison ( i am an independent and greatly appreciate the comparison) and i am hopeful that not all liberals are blind enough to outwardly refute your great point. I said hopeful not confident!
