Corruption: Hillary Clinton and her supporters have steadfastly maintained that her private email server posed no threat to U.S. security. But that's not true, as the recent inspector general's report and comments from a former counterintelligence official show.
It's shocking that someone could lie so prolifically about something, yet pay no consequences for it. But that perfectly describes Clinton's situation.
In her early March press briefing, she had the following exchange:
Question: "Were you ever ... specifically briefed on the security implications of using ... your own email server and using your personal address to email with the president?"
Clinton: "I did not email any classified material to anyone on my email. There is no classified material. So I'm certainly well aware of the classification requirement and did not send classified material."
This is plainly a lie, since the initial investigation by Charles McCullough, the intelligence agencies' inspector general, found at least 1,000 classified documents on Clinton's server, with some two dozen of those classified as either Top Secret or SAP. For those who don't know, SAP is even higher than Top Secret, and involves the most sensitive secrets the nation has.
We've gone through all the evidence before, and will again before this saga is through. But one aspect has been curiously left unexplored: the likelihood that Hillary's email was hacked by foreign intelligence, leading to a possible major breach of U.S. security.
