C’mon, Hillary! This email had ‘multiple’ classified markings

Powered by Topple

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is still promoting the fiction that none of her emails were marked classified, but at least one of them that was routed through her private, non-secure server had multiple classification markings.

Nearly every paragraph in one of Clinton’s emails was preceded by a classification code indicating the classification of intelligence contained in the paragraph, a government source told Fox News.

One paragraph in that particular email had a “C” marking to the left of it, indicating the information was classified, and “multiple paragraphs (on the same email) are marked, SBU,” meaning the information was “sensitive but unclassified.”

According to notes of Clinton’s July 2 interview with the FBI that the agency released late last week, Clinton claimed that she was unaware of what the “C” classification referred to, and “stated she did not know and could only speculate it was referencing paragraphs marked in alphabetical order.”

“It’s not possible, not even plausible, it’s an alphabetical listing. The explanation makes no sense,” the government source told Fox News.

Furthermore, none of the other emails contain “A, B or other letters,” undercutting her “alphabetical” claim, a second government source who examined the FBI file told Fox News. That source added that “A, B, C, SBU does not fly.”

WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange also challenged Clinton’s claims to the FBI during his interview with Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity.

“Hillary Clinton says she can’t remember what a ‘C’ in brackets stands for. Everyone in positions of government and in Wikileaks knows it stands for classified, ‘confidential,’” Assange said. He added that Wikileaks has released thousands of cables showing Clinton’s signature with “C” next to it.

Questions about Clinton’s use of a private email server during her tenure as secretary of state have dogged her campaign from the beginning.

During a July House committee hearing, FBI Director James Comey admitted to Rep. Trey Gowdy that most — if not all — of clinton’s explanations regarding her emails were complete fabrications.

Nonetheless, Comey recommended that no charges should be brought against Clinton for her misuse of classified information.
