Which, there’s three levels of classification- Confidential, Secret and Top Secret. Then there Special Compartmented Information, wherein Top Secret Information is held to a close group of cleared individuals. And then there’s Special Access Programs– information that is under an additional set of protocols for information security assurance. Or you could just let it sit on Hillary Clinton’s private email server.
Emails from Hillary Clinton’s home server contained information classified at levels higher than previously known, including a level meant to protect some of the most sensitive U.S. intelligence, according to a document obtained by NBC News.
In a letter to lawmakers, the intelligence community’s internal watchdog says some of Clinton’s emails contained information classified Top Secret/Special Access Program, a secrecy designation that includes some of the most closely held U.S. intelligence matters.
Two American intelligence officials tell NBC News these are not the same two emails from Clinton’s server that have long been reported as containing information deemed Top Secret.
Hillary Clinton deliberately went to the trouble of setting up her own email server for herself and her closest associates at State. Why? A lack of secure facilities at State? Hardly.
Because she knew she was trading influence and favor in return for donations to her so called foundation (which, let’s face it, that’s pretty much a money laundering operation) and having her own email system would remove all her communications from oversight by Congress.
Indulge me in the fantasy that Clinton is indicted and brought to trial for mishandling of classified information, obstruction, and evidence tampering. One fun aspect would be the jury pool. Every American has a right to examine the evidence against them. And the SAP evidence would likely end up being presented to the jurors. Which would mean they, as well as the judge, prosecution, and defense counsel, and a host of others, would have to be screened for a security clearance, and authorized limited access to the very programs the SAP is designed to protect.
