Update: Daily Mail Claims the US Knew Hillary's Emails Were For Sale, But, Get This, Didn't Make an Offer for Them

Is this bullshit too?

An unnamed US "intelligence official" is claiming this.

EXCLUSIVE: Hillary's emails WERE for sale on the open market but the Obama administration didn't go after them, says US intelligence official

A US intel agency knew during the summer that someone was marketing a tranche of Hillary Clinton's private emails

But the Obama adinistration never cleared its spooks to obtain them

"Opportunities were missed," an intelligence official told DailyMail.com

Revelation is separate from debunked claims that a hacker had put Clinton's entire email collection on the market for $500,000

By DAVID MARTOSKO, US POLITICAL EDITOR FOR DAILYMAIL.COM

A U.S. intelligence agency was aware during the summer that a collection of Hillary Clinton's emails was available for sale, but never gave its agents permission to obtain them, DailyMail.com can reveal.

A well-placed official inside the agency told DailyMail.com about the U.S. government's interactions with an eastern European man who put them on the market, and said the U.S. could have obtained them.

That discussion was spurred by a dubious claim from the gossip website Radar Online that 32,000 messages from Hillary Clinton's now infamous private email account were for sale with an alleged asking price of $500,000.

'I'm not saying we could have gotten her entire email account. I'm not even saying for sure that what has been on the market is genuine,' the official cautioned.
'But opportunities were missed. That much is clear.'

So... is this real? Now we have a US intelligence official confirming the bulk of the tale.

(Or is he...? Perhaps he's only confirming they were aware of this offer being dangled -- which still does not make the offer bona fide.)
