An intelligence community review of classified material on Hillary’s email server confirms that Hillary had top secret emails on server and that they were top secret when they were delivered to Hillary Clinton according to a Fox News report by Catherine Herridge. The State Department has attempted to shield Clinton from prosecution by altering the classification, but has no authority to alter the classification level of materials originated by other agencies. Sources familiar with the investigation describe the dispute over whether Hillary’s emails were classified top secret as a settled matter. The existence of top secret material on Hillary’s email server means she is now subject to indictment.

Hillary Had Top Secret Emails On Server

Fox News Chief Intelligence correspondent Catherine Herridge is reporting that a review by the intelligence community of the classification of two Top Secret emails found on Hillary Clinton’s email sever has confirmed that the emails were, in fact, Top Secret when they hit Hillary Clinton’s unsecured personal server.

The State Department had challenged the top secret designation in an attempt to shield democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton from prosecution for violating the Espionage Act. But the State Department does not have the authority to downgrade the classification level of top secret materials that were originated at other agencies, according to two sources familiar with the review.

The sources describe the dispute over whether the emails were classified at the highest level as a settled matter. The government agencies that owned and originated the intelligence contained in those emails – the CIA and National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency – reviewed the emails to determine how they should be properly stored, as the State Department took issue with their highly classified nature.

The subject matter of the messages is widely reported to be the movement of North Korean missiles and a drone strike. A top secret classification is significantly more serious than the classified designation that Clinton has repeatedly denied having on her personal, non-secure email server.

The sources, who were not authorized to speak on the record, said that there is no doubt that the emails were top secret when they hit Clinton’s server. One of them remains top secret to this day — and must be handled at the highest security level. The second email is still considered classified but at the lower secret level because more information has become publicly available about the event.

The findings have been transmitted to the State Department, which continues to challenge the intelligence community’s conclusions about the classification of the emails. But the department has no authority to change the classification since it did not originate the information.

False Politico Article Attempted To Shield Clinton

In early December, Politico reported that the intelligence community was retreating from the top secret classification, which could have helped the Clinton campaign deflect allegations about mishandling classified material. However, it was later discovered that the Politico article, which was written by a long-time Clinton sympathizer was just wishful thinking.

While the top secret classification finding is important, the central issue is whether the FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton determines there was a criminal violation. On this the answer is clear and unequivocal: the existence of top secret material on the server is a violation of US Espionage Laws. By statute, Hillary will be barred for life from ever again holding elected office, she will pay a hefty fine and she should be sentenced to jail time.

Fox News reported earlier this month that two top Republican senators have written directly to Secretary of State John Kerry and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper about possible leaks from their departments on their review of Clinton’s emails — wrongly leaving the impression that the two “top secret” messages were not that sensitive.

The letter was sent by Republican Sen. Bob Corker, who chairs the Foreign Relations Committee, and Sen. Richard Burr, who heads the powerful Intelligence Committee, on Nov. 13, with copies sent three days later to the intelligence community and State Department watchdogs known as inspectors general. The IGs were asked to conduct an independent review of the process.

While the senators’ letter is not public, Fox News has confirmed that the senators cited the Politico report from Nov. 6 where unnamed sources claimed the two “top secret” emails had been downgraded after a second review. While hailed by Clinton’s supporters as evidence she did not break the law and send classified information on her personal email account, the Politico story was later updated to reflect the fact that Clapper’s office said the review was ongoing.

Key Takeaways

  1. Hillary Clinton is guilty of violating several provisions of the Espionage Act just by virtue of having Top Secret material on her personal, non-secure email server. This is not open to debate, the mere existence of classified material is a crime.
  2. Hillary has attempted to confuse and deceive American voters since this story broke in March 2015 by declaring qualifiers such as “the emails weren’t marked classified.” Whether emails were marked or not doesn’t matter. Classified is classified, regardless of their color, content or markings.
  3. Hillary Clinton has lied about her private email setup from the beginning and at every turn. As each of her lies has been exposed she has unabashedly marched out fresh lies.
  4. Hillary Clinton is a chronic liar who has violated the Espionage Act and caused irreparable harm to US national security.
  5. Hillary chose to put herself above the country.
