The State Department has just released its last batch of Hillary Clinton emails before the election. And at least one email quickly surfaced that is bad news for the Democrat presidential wannabe.An email that was previously deleted reveals Hillary actually forwarded classified information to daughter Chelsea.
Seems like a blatant disregard for national security, doesn’t it?
According to The Daily Caller, The email was released on Friday by the State Department. It is one of thousands of emails recovered by the FBI from Clinton’s private email server.
The Dec. 20, 2009 email chain, entitled “Update,” started with a message from Michael Froman, who served as a deputy assistant to President Obama and deputy national security adviser for international economic affairs.The email, which is redacted because it contains information classified as “Confidential,” was sent to Jake Sullivan, Clinton’s foreign policy adivser at the State Department, and several Obama aides. Sullivan sent it to Hillary Clinton who then forwarded it to Chelsea, who emailed under the pseudonym “Diane Reynolds.”
All of the text in the body portion of the classified emails is redacted because it contains foreign government information.
The State Department labeled the email a “near duplicate,” indicating that it was mostly similar to other emails that the agency has released from the trove of emails that Clinton turned over in Dec. 2014.Clinton did not delete other responses she made to others on the email thread.
But perhaps the most significant part of the email is that Clinton forwarded classified information to her daughter, who is and was a private citizen with no government role and no apparent security clearances.Hillary seems to have so little disregard for the law and for the safety of citizens and our relationship with foreign governments that she’ll let an individual with zero security clearance have access to sensitive information.
This is quite clearly a violation of the law, and as such, Clinton should be indicted and prosecuted to the fullest possible extent, being held accountable for her actions.
If she did something this egregious as secretary of state, just imagine what she’d do if she were president.
That’s a thought that should keep you up at night.
