Email Scandal: New IG report confirms Hillary Clinton broke the law at least 4 times

A letter obtained by the Wall Street Journal from the intelligence community IG, directed to Congress, accuses Hillary Clinton of sending material classified at the time through her private and unsecured e-mail server on at least four occasions, violating the law.

The Journal notes that “…the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community concluded that Mrs. Clinton’s email contains material from the intelligence community that should have been considered ‘secret’ at the time it was sent, the second-highest level of classification.”

A copy of this letter to Congress was provided to media outlet by a spokeswoman for the Inspector General, Andrea Williams.

She states that the four emails in question “were classified when they were sent and are classified now and this was after a review of just a small sample totaling about 40 emails in Clinton’s inbox.

It’s noteworthy that the email count is estimated to be at least 300,00, so countless communications may contain potentially secret or top-secret information.

Hot Air reports “That’s a failure rate of … ten percent. The sample of 40 e-mails indicates that there may have been massive amounts of classified material sent in the 33,000 e-mails that Hillary Clinton actually produced. One has to wonder how many of the other 30,000-plus e-mails that Hillary claimed were personal in nature might have even more sensitive material.”

In March, Hillary claimed to be aware of the requirements on classified material, and flat-out denied having ever sent any through her e-mail.

“It’s not uncommon that something that you’re sending now on an unclassified network could in later years or later months be deemed to be classified either because the passage of time made it so or because events on the ground have borne out,” a State Department spokesman said earlier this month.

The letter to Congress notes that the four e-mails they discovered may not have had classified markings on them, but that they “included IC-derived classified information and should have been handled as classified, appropriately marked, and transmitted via a secure network.”

This translates as the process in which classified material provided by the intelligence community and dropped it into unsecured communications — a violation of the law, and a risk to national security.

Hot Air posted an update that: The IG notes that “[n]one of the emails we reviewed had classification or dissemination markings,” which is not an escape hatch for Hillary, but another violation of the laws pertaining to handling classified material. She took the information from intelligence material classified at that time, and failed to mark it as such in her e-mails.
