He then asked: "Why wasn't it disqualifying, if you want to be commander-in-chief?" He also warns Clinton that emails sent or received on her Blackberry could be considered official government records. I would certainly not do it again. It was something that should not have been done. During her tenure, CLINTON stated State did the best they could to not confirm drone strikes and were as careful as possible, but had to deal with a "rash" of news reports on drones.
The release of the email by Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., came on the eve of a House Oversight hearing in which Republicans are expected to focus on Clinton's use of a private email server and whether the State Department has been forthcoming with Freedom of Information requests.
"In response to a Benghazi-related FOIA request, after completing its review of the set of documents previously identified as potentially responsive, State has determined that there is one responsive document that is not a duplicate of the documents provided by former Secretary Clinton in December 2014 and that had not been previously provided to Judicial Watch in this case", State Department spokesman Mark Toner said in a statement. Those occurred separately from the email deletions overseen by the former secretary of state's legal team a year ago before she turned over 33,000 work-related messages to the State Department.
At one point in the interview, she was presented with a 2012 email that included a "c" marking next to one of the paragraphs. A few days later, she told the Associated Press there was no reason for her to apologize, because "what I did was allowed". "Clinton's email cover-up scheme is as plain as day". I'm sorry about that.
James Comey defended the work of his agents Wednesday in a memo to staff, arguing the decision to spare Hillary Clinton and her aides from prosecution for their mistreatment of classified information was not a hard one.
"As we suspected, it appears these emails were nearly entirely redundant with ones she had produced previously", Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon said. They also reveal new excuses so ridiculous they require us to believe she is not deceitful, just incompetent.
After Lauer's questioning, a man who described himself as a veteran and a Republican said that when he worked in the military, he had to handle top secret information. Receiving such transmissions that contain obvious classified information - such as that regarding potential Air Force satellite drone targeting intelligence or details regarding American human intelligence assets on foreign soil on that unsecure network while lacking those classification headings - is a serious federal offense as well, carrying prison time for ordinary citizens. His question: "How can you expect those such as myself who were and are entrusted with America's most sensitive information to have any confidence in your leadership as president when you clearly corrupted our national security?" "CLINTON did not recall a State policy on confirming classified information in media reports". "There were no headers".
Either way, Clinton said she treated the content of the email as a "condolence call" and questioned the classification level.
That commitment should finally put this controversy to rest.
