Just as anyone with nothing to hide would do, the State Department released another batch of emails from Hillary Clinton’s private and poorly secured state department just before two a.m. on Friday. Included in that tranche were a variety of emails with classified or sensitive information included in the body, raising the number of such emails Clinton said never existed to well over 1,000. Exposing Clinton’s claim that “there is no classified material” in her private “homebrew” email server is no longer shocking. What was remarkable in this particular batch of emails was one communication from Clinton in which she informed her aide, Jake Sullivan, to disregard sending sensitive information via “secure fax.” Instead, she requested that a document in question be turned “into nonpaper w no identifying heading and send nonsecure.”
The content of the document that was supposed to be sent securely but was instead stripped of the markings that would identify it as sensitive and sent via non-secure transmissions remains unknown, and the State Department is dragging its feet. This revelation is, however, nothing short of a bombshell. The notion that Clinton’s email scandal has amounted to nothing, a dubious assertion of faith that the left nevertheless comforted itself with, is under siege.
