The FBI is investigating whether members of Hillary Clinton’s inner circle “cut and pasted” material from the government’s classified network so that it could be sent to her private e-mail address, former State Department security officials say.
Clinton and her top aides had access to a Pentagon-run classified network that goes up to the Secret level, as well as a separate system used for Top Secret communications.
The two systems — the Secret Internet Protocol Router Network (SIPRNet) and Joint Worldwide Intelligence Communications System (JWICS) — are not connected to the unclassified system, known as the Non-Classified Internet Protocol Router Network (NIPRNet). You cannot e-mail from one system to the other, though you can use NIPRNet to send e-mails outside the government.
He says it’s clear from some of the classified e-mails made public that someone on Clinton’s staff essentially “cut and pasted” content from classified cables into the messages sent to her. The classified markings are gone, but the content is classified at the highest levels — and so sensitive in nature that “it would have been obvious to Clinton.” Most likely the information was, in turn, e-mailed to her via NIPRNet.
To work around the closed, classified systems, which are accessible only by secure desktop workstations whose hard drives must be removed and stored overnight in a safe, Clinton’s staff would have simply retyped classified information from the systems into the non-classified system or taken a screen shot of the classified document, Fournier said. “Either way, it’s totally illegal.”
In one e-mail, Clinton pressured Sullivan to declassify cabled remarks by a foreign leader.
“Just e-mail it,” Clinton snapped, to which Sullivan replied: “Trust me, I share your exasperation. But until ops converts it to the unclassified e-mail system, there is no physical way for me to e-mail it.”
In another recently released e-mail, Clinton instructed Sullivan to convert a classified document into an unclassified e-mail attachment by scanning it into an unsecured computer and sending it to her without any classified markings. “Turn into nonpaper w no identifying heading and send nonsecure,” she ordered.

She, and many other politicians, have been in their protected shell so long, they believe they are completely irreproachable, mostly because they HAVE been. I think they all suffer from mental disorders. But actually, you can't find them as the sole source of the problem. Our culture.....yes, yours and mine, have allowed not only misbehavior but criminal actions to be met with MAYBE a blurb or two on page 9 of the popular MSM rags, and little to no mention on MSM. The liberal media has done everything to cover up for the criminals by simply keeping silent. All the agencies that would normally slap cuffs on us for far less crimes, won't touch them. And we the people haven't shouted loud enough against foul play. I'm amazed that the public which supports her would vote for her in spite of them believing she is dishonest and don't trust her.
I'm not excusing her by any means and she should be criminally prosecuted and jailed. But until the sources which allowed criminal behavior by not acting on them or even hiding them, are brought to the publics eye, boycotted, charged and prosecuted, even sued civilly, it will continue to happen. It's no secret that the Clintons and others have been unscrupulous for many years.
I know this is rambling but hopefully you guys will get the gist of what I'm trying to say.

Oh you guys and your support of the vast right wing conspiracy.
Don't you know Bill & Hillary have always been victims? It all depends on what the definition of 'is' is.
There is so much here that she can be indicted for, it's ridiculous.
