A new batch of Hillary Clinton’s emails during her tenure as Secretary of State reveal the extent to which the former Presidential nominee mishandled sensitive material; blatantly violating protocol by sending detailed messages to top aides through a vulnerable server.
Judicial Watch, a watchdog agency promoting greater government transparency, obtained the emails as part of an ongoing lawsuit to review Clinton’s communications with top staffers.
Emails between Hillary and senior aide Huma Abedin reveal the extent to which classified material was widely dispersed without approval, and involve topics as wide-ranging as US-Israeli relations, the US war against Mexican drug cartels, Afghanistan military policy, and more.
According to Judicial Watch, the documents show the “carelessness” with which Hillary and Abedin discussed top-secret intel.
“Could I ask you to review the memo below that I wrote yesterday on my return from Israel? If you think it worthwhile, I’d be very grateful if you showed it to HRC (I have already shared it with Mitchell and Feltman). A confrontation with Bibi appears imminent,” said one email to Abedin’s unsecure email account.
Another email openly discussed the Afghan elections in 2009 through the same vulnerable account.
“The emails show ‘what happened’ was that Hillary Clinton and Huma Abedin obviously violated laws about the handling of classified information and turned the State Department into a pay for play tool for the corrupt Clinton Foundation,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “The clear and mounting evidence of pay for play and mishandling of classified information warrant a serious criminal investigation by an independent Trump Justice Department.”
