spend their donations (hint: it starts with C, ends with N and has "LINTO" in the middle).
The negative PR has gotten to the point that even Granny Catlady was forced to address the scandal. In a public forum today, Hillary says that she never sent or received material that was marked classified.
Yet, my friends, Top Secret information was discovered among her various illegal email accounts, which makes clear that someone intentionally removed the TS/SI/TK/NOFORN classification markers. These denote "Top Secret, Signals Intelligence, Talent Keyhole, No Foreign Nationals" classified information -- in this case, spy satellite photos.
One State Department official has a theory as to how the classification markers were removed:
“[S]omewhere between the point they came into the building and the time they reached HRC’s server, someone would have had to strip the classification markings from that information before it was transmitted to HRC’s personal email...Given the fact that the State Department reported Friday that top Hillary aides Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin both used personal email accounts and an account on Hillary Clinton's illegal email server to conduct government business, the obvious question that each of Hillary aides must be asked is:
[Doing so would] constitute a felony, in and of itself. I can’t imagine that a rank-and-file career DOS employee would have done this, so it was most likely done by someone in her inner circle.
"Did you or anyone you know remove classification markers from documents?"
Perhaps a member of the House Oversight Committee -- someone like Trey Gowdy, only competent -- could pose the question.
REMINDER: Mishandling classified information is a felonyChelsea Manning got 35 years for sharing Secret information (a classification below Top Secret), while former CIA chief David Petraeus escaped with two years' probation and a $100,000 fine.
Oh, and when forced to address this insane mess, Hillary stated earlier today that voters aren't interested in the scandal, because she never gets asked about the topic (which is not related to the fact that her 'town hall' attendees are all carefully screened).
