  • ENDGAME: State Dept. Declares 22 Hillary Emails ‘TOP SECRET’

    Politico has the details:

    The furor over Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email account grew more serious for the Democratic presidential frontrunner Friday as the State Department designated 22 of the messages from her account “top secret.”

    It was the first time State has formally deemed any of Clinton’s emails classified at that level, reserved for information that can cause “exceptionally grave” damage to national security if disclosed.

    State did not provide details on the subject of the messages, which represent seven email chains and a total of 37 pages. However, State spokesman John Kirby said they are part of a set the intelligence community inspector general told Congress contained information classified for discussing “Special Access Programs.”

    “These documents were not marked classified at the time they were sent,” Kirby said in a statement. He said State is still looking into whether they should have been considered classified at the time they were created.

    “I’m not going to speak to the contents of the traffic,” the spokesman said.

    State was ordered by a federal judge to complete its public release of Clinton’s emails by today, but said last week it will not be able to meet that deadline. About 1,000 of the remaining 9,000 pages are expected to be released this evening, Kirby said.

    Thus far, about 1,300 emails from Clinton’s account have been deemed classified, most at the lowest level, “confidential.”

    Remember when Hillary said that she never “sent or received” classified emails from her private server?

    Good times, good times.

    Looks like Hillary could make it into a House in 2017, alright — the Big House!
