I am trying to be fair here... why I don't know.

She kept classified emails on an unauthorized email server.

I did not say that it wasn't an illegal server, just that it wasn't authorized to contain classified information. The server became illegal the instant the first classified email touched it.

Forget email server for a moment and think email server hard drive... that's all that matters here. That hard drive became classified to the highest level of information it contained. Even erased, that drive is still classified until physically destroyed.

Do you not understand what unauthorized storage of classified information is?

For anybody interested in searching the Hillary emails, here's the official State Department site that has 30,332 of 'em.

To see the ones sent from HER, place an " H " in the search box and hit the enter key.

There's lots with plenty of censored parts !!!!!!!

The Hillary "Collection"

Sullivan did not remove headers on classified material.. They were sent as is through the proper channels.

Not talking about what Sullivan did. Talking about what Hillary did.



As for it being ok, that is for the FBI and JD to decide.

Would you have done the same thing?




I'll ask again. Was Hillary the person whom sent the offending emails?

According to the Washington Post story that has been put forth on this thread, yes.

Why Rick, do you mean to tell me that unauthorized storage, transfer and possession of classified materials is illegal?

Your kindness is only surpassed by your arrogance.



Do you not understand what unauthorized storage of classified information is?


Yes I do. If her server was not illegal and she was allowed to use the server, as many other government officials have done before, how can we say she is guilty of unauthorized storage of classified information?

Irrelevant.

The Washington Post has been one of the sites spreading inaccurate information on this issue. Can you provide a link in which it states the emails in question were specifically sent by Hillary to someone else?

I still maintain she is playing word games as the term classified is not used. The 3 levels used are confidential, secret and top secret. I want the media to ask if she ever emailed any confidential, secret or top secret info.

Yes

She violated several federal laws and in the case of confidential, secret and top secret info and email the violations were egregious.

Which laws?

It was legal to use the private email.

It was legal to use her private server.

The emails on the server, so far, have either been retroactively classified or have not been specifically stated to have originated from Hillary herself.

Do you know what a SCIF is?

Do you know TS/SCI information must be kept in a SCIF or under very strict documented two person integrity when outside the SCIF?

Do you understand there are different levels of classification? Her private server was only good for personal email and anything else unclassified, it was not rated for any higher level of use, there are strict guide lines that must be followed for storage of classified information. Her server was not approved above anything besides Unclassified. She had a lot of classified emails. I wouldn't want to be in her shoes right now.

HILLARY'S PRIVATE EMAIL SERVER WAS NOT AUTHORIZED TO HANDLE ANY CLASSIFIED INFORMATION. No matter how bad you or any other Hillary fan would like it to be.

The clock is ticking.

I can't wait to see the FBI briefing...soon my preciousssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooon.

Did any of those emails contain information classified at that level that were not retroactively classified?

The same question applies. You have to prove Hillary originated an email that contained classified information that was classified at the time of transmission....and not retroactively.

If you do not have that proof, you are only speculating.

By the way, I'm not a Hillary fan. I just don't like political witch hunts.

...and her response will (as always) be: "I've said it a million times...I did not send or receive any emails marked 'Classified'!"

To say: "I did not send or receive any emails marked 'Top Secret'." would be a provable lie.

I can't wait either. Either charge her with something or shut the # up.

What happens if she is not charged?

What if she is innocent?

Have you pondered those possibilities?

The emails on the server, so far, have either been retroactively classified or have not been specifically stated to have originated from Hillary herself.

The whole issue seems to be over your head.

That's nice and all, but the talking points memo was sent as is, not stripped of markings, and through proper channels.

So now you have to prove that Hillary's request in an of itself was a violation of US code, even though it was not carried-out.

Insults do not make proof.

You can assert and wish all you want, but you have to be able to prove guilt.

Can you do that, or are you making me the topic to cover for your, and other's, ignorance?
