Hillary’s Latest Defense of Mishandling Classified Info is The Most Laughable Yet
Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton can't escape the biggest political gaffe of her career. For Clinton, the fact that her private email server has eclipsed the sexual activities of her husband while in the White House is probably baffling. But for the rest of America, we care about how Clinton handled classified information because being president is about more than just giving good speeches.
Since the news came out that Clinton used a private email server, housed in an unsecured location in her home, she's fielded questions using several strategies.
First, Clinton completely denied the presence of any classified material on her private server.
When that lie was debunked, Clinton changed her tune. The emails that were classified weren't classified when they were sent to her email account and that the classification of the material in the emails occurred after she had received them.
That was also revealed to be a lie and Clinton changed her tune again. This time she claimed that the emails "weren't marked as classified" when they were sent to her email. The FBI, unfortunately for her, found that there were definitely "C" markers on the emails, marking them as classified.
But Clinton is again changing her story, claiming that, because the emails didn't have a classified header, she shouldn't have been obligated to know that they were classified.
"[C]lassified material has a header which says 'top secret,' 'secret,' 'confidential," Clinton told attendees at an NBC event. She then claimed that none of the emails sent to her had that header.
Clinton, can't you see that we're wise to your flip-flopping? Your tune has changed as many times as you saw a threat coming to your reputation.
We don't need someone as Commander in Chief who can't keep classified information secret and safe and who doesn't know how to recognize that information when she sees it.
