This would be funny if it weren’t so damned serious. The woman hands over secrets faster than some people give out business cards.
Hillary obviously knows (academically) that cyber-security … and ‘following the rules’ is important. She told her staff to do it.
Too funny… Hillary was in a video (2010) underscoring to her staff the need to comply with policies, and be alert to threats so that they would not be exposed to cyber threats.
‘…you have a special duty to guard ourselves and our sensitive information…’
The only problem with KNOWING that following the rules is important, it loses all meaning to someone who believes that THEY are somehow TOO IMPORTANT to be constrained by little things like laws and rules. Hillary is one such person.
Allow us to introduce to you the woman that might be Hillary’s equivalent to her husband’s ‘Blue Dress’.
Here is an excerpt from the story at the New York Post (the full article is a good read):
Clinton would first receive highly sensitive e-mails from top aides at the State Department and then request that they, in turn, forward the messages and any attached documents to Santos to print out for her at the home.
Among other things, Clinton requested Santos print out drafts of her speeches, confidential memos and “call sheets” — background information and talking points prepared for the secretary of state in advance of a phone call with a foreign head of state.
“Pls ask Marina to print for me in am,” Clinton e-mailed top aide Huma Abedin regarding a redacted 2011 message marked sensitive but unclassified.
In a classified 2012 e-mail dealing with the new president of Malawi, another Clinton aide, Monica Hanley, advised Clinton, “We can ask Marina to print this.”
“Revisions to the Iran points” was the subject line of a classified April 2012 e-mail to Clinton from Hanley. In it, the text reads, “Marina is trying to print for you.”
Both classified e-mails were marked “confidential,” the tier below “secret” or “top secret.”
Santos also had access to a highly secure room called an SCIF (sensitive compartmented information facility) that diplomatic security agents set up at Whitehaven, according to FBI notes from an interview with Abedin.
From within the SCIF, Santos — who had no clearance — “collected documents from the secure facsimile machine for Clinton,” the FBI notes revealed.
Just how sensitive were the papers Santos presumably handled? The FBI noted Clinton periodically received the Presidential Daily Brief — a top-secret document prepared by the CIA and other US intelligence agencies — via the secure fax.
A 2012 “sensitive” but unclassified e-mail from Hanley to Clinton refers to a fax the staff wanted Clinton “to see before your Netanyahu mtg. Marina will grab for you.”
Yet it appears Clinton was never asked by the FBI in its yearlong investigation to turn over the iMac Santos used to receive the e-mails, or the printer she used to print out the documents, or the printouts themselves.
As The Post first reported, copies of Clinton’s 33,000 allegedly destroyed e-mails still exist in other locations and could be recovered if investigators were turned loose to seize them. Higher-ups at the Justice Department reportedly have blocked them from obtaining search warrants to obtain the evidence.
Yet again, the Justice Department is BECOMING the story.
And Hillary, who tried to use a ‘Miss Housekeeping’ phrase to hurt Trump at the polls might herself, be undone by her ACTUAL housekeeper.
Oh, the irony.
