Hillary Clinton’s email imbroglio has gotten more serious, while her explanation has grown more preposterous. According to a new report from Fox News, Rep. Mike Pompeo, R-Kan., a member of the House Intelligence Committee, when speaking of Clinton and the classified information found on her private email server, said that Mrs. Clinton had to have known she was dealing with classified information, regardless of whether or not it was marked as such.
Rep. Pompeo stated, “There is no way that someone, a senior government official who has been handling classified information for a good chunk of their adult life, could not have known that this information ought to be classified, whether it was marked or not.” He continued, “Anyone with the capacity to read and an understanding of American national security, an 8th grade reading level or above, would understand that the release of this information or the potential breach of a non-secure system presented risk to American national security.” (emphasis added)
And Hillary keeps stating that none of the material on her server was marked classified, as though that were the only thing that mattered — when in fact, it is quite irrelevant. The fact that Mrs. Clinton’s security breaches placed the lives of American security personnel at risk, and necessitated changing America’s national security protocol, seems a bit more to the point.
And the New York Times has just endorsed Hillary to become the Democrat party’s nominee. I guess she’s not the only one who’s no smarter than an eighth grader.Follow @PolitiQuick
