Hillary said her staff went through ALL of her emails, and set aside ALL correspondence that was not personal. The assumption is, that the emails set aside went to the Department of State. So her unnamed staffers, sometimes referred to as her “team,” read EVERY email, which means all the ‘readers’ had the same security credentials–presumably the highest level, equaling her own, during the time she was Secretary of State. ALL of them. They were privy to EVERYTHING.
Judge Andrew Napolitano points out that Hillary’s security clearance was the same as that held by the President of the United States, the Secretary of Defense, and the director of the CIA. Who was allowed to read her emails from Barack Obama or other high-level cabinet members? Who did the sorting and deciding? What were the staffers paid to read emails that could contain state secrets, i.e. classified information? Inquiring minds want to know.
Clinton’s “spokesman,” Nick Merrill, sent this clarification to Fox News:
We simply took for granted that reading every single email came across as the most important, fundamental and exhaustive step that was performed. The fact sheet should have been clearer in stating that every email was read,” Merrill said.
Oh sure, I heard her say she didn’t send classified material via email. But did she receive it? Do you believe anything she says?
