Email: Hillary Personally Ordered Aide to Strip Classified Markings Out of Classified Document and Send It "Nonsecure"

Via Hot Air, which I'll link in a moment, Fox News reports that the latest batch of the emails Hillary didn't delete include sixty-six with some degree of classification, which she was sending and receiving illegally.

But it gets worse. Far worse. Smoking gun worse.

All but one of the 66 messages have been labeled "confidential", the lowest level of classification. The remaining email has been labeled as "secret." The total number of classified emails found on Clinton's personal server has risen to 1,340 with the latest release. Seven of those emails have been labeled "secret."

In all, the State Department released 1,262 messages in the early hours of Friday, making up almost 2,900 pages of emails. Unlike in previous releases, none of the messages were searchable in the department's online reading room by subject, sender or recipient.

I don't know what significance that has. But....

[O]ne email thread from June 2011 appears to include Clinton telling her top adviser Jake Sullivan to send secure information through insecure means.

In response to Clinton's request for a set of since-redacted talking points, Sullivan writes, "They say they've had issues sending secure fax. They're working on it." Clinton responds "If they can't, turn into nonpaper [with] no identifying heading and send nonsecure."

They had trouble sending classified information via a secure fax. So, Clinton told him, just strip out the classified warnings in the header, turn it into "nonpaper" (that is, scan it so it can be sent in email), and send it "nonsecure."

This sentence is Hillary Clinton explicitly ordering an underling to violate the most basic laws of confidential information, namely, that classified information cannot be sent except on classified channels.

Of course, Hillary's private email server was not a classified channel, but she still wanted the convenience of email, so it appears she routinely ordered people to take classified documents -- physical documents, which were specifically not electronic in order to prevent wide nonsecure transmission via email -- and make them "nonpaper" and send them "nonsecure."

This does not appear to be some innovation she's suggesting here -- the flatness of the order, with an air of "do what we usually do," strongly suggests this was the normal course of business in the House of Clinton.

But we don't have to go that far: What we now have in our hands is smoking-gun proof of a felony, and not a felony about sex, but instead a felony about the national security of the United States.

Remember that Hillary has always offered the lawyerly limitation that she sent no information "marked classified through her email.

Well, here we have her ordering Jake Sullivan to strip out those markings.

If the FBI does not indict Clinton, two things follow:

1. There is no longer any law against the selling or transmission of classified information.

2. There is no longer any rule of law in the United States of America, and, the United States being conceived as a place of laws not men, there is then no longer any United States of America, either.

There is simply a rogue gang that has all of the heavy guns, cowing the rest of the populace into compliance.

More at Hot Air, including screenshots of the email chain in question.

Correction: A commenter points out the FBI doesn't indict people; the DOJ does. The FBI can merely present findings.

Well, in that case, I demand the FBI at least scream bloody murder when Loretta Lynch does what we all know Loretta Lynch is going to do.

Their institutional honor, and institutional credibility, depends on at least that.

"Non-Paper:" Rhomboid writes:

ace, though the context here clearly indicates it is *not* the use of the term intended, "non-paper" is a guvamint/State term for a draft version of a memo or proposal, intended to have some sort of informal or deniable status. That is, it's a formal sort of trial balloon. But as I said, in this context it clearly seems to be a reference to actual physical paper, fax, vs. electronic version.

Next Step? I wonder if Hillary will next claim that she wasn't the person with primary control of her email, and that this must have been done from some underling (who she won't name).
