FBI Takes Custody Of Hillary Email Server, Thumb Drives, Amid Revelations of “Top Secret” Email Content…

First Hillary said there was no classified information contained within her emails; then the narrative changed to there was nothing classified “at the time” it was on her email server; which later evolved to there was nothing “labeled” as classified when her communications were exclusively on her personal email system.  Now it is revealed that TOP SECRET classified information was contained in her communication.   The saga continues...

Hillary clinton mehWASHINGTON (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton relented Tuesday to months of demands she relinquish the personal email server she used while secretary of state, directing the device be given to the Justice Department.

The decision advances the investigation into the Democratic presidential front-runner’s use of a private email account as the nation’s top diplomat, and whether classified information was improperly sent via and stored on the home-brew email server she ran from her house in suburban New York City.

Clinton campaign spokesman Nick Merrill said she has “pledged to cooperate with the government’s security inquiry, and if there are more questions, we will continue to address them.”

It’s not clear if the device will yield any information — Clinton’s attorney said in March that no emails from the main personal address she used while secretary of state still “reside on the server or on back-up systems associated with the server.”

Clinton had to this point refused demands from Republican critics to turn over the server to a third party, with attorney David Kendall telling the House committee investigating the 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya, that “there is no basis to support the proposed third-party review of the server.”

Republicans jumped on Tuesday’s decision to change course, as well as the additional disclosure that two emails that traversed Clinton’s personal system were subsequently given one of the government’s highest classification ratings.

“All this means is that Hillary Clinton, in the face of FBI scrutiny, has decided she has run out of options,” Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said in a statement. “She knows she did something wrong and has run out of ways to cover it up.”

Federal investigators have begun looking into the security of Clintons’ email setup amid concerns from the inspector general for the intelligence community that classified information may have passed through the system.

There is no evidence she used encryption to shield the emails or her personal server from foreign intelligence services or other potentially prying eyes. Kendall has said previously that Clinton is “actively cooperating” with the FBI inquiry.  (read more)

      Isn’t it amazing still that even though the shoe has dropped. It is still on a tiptoeing foot? What is making these people, who know damn well she did wrong, not come out screaming how wrong it was. To let her say emails were not marked with a classification is a prison offense for the underlings who didn’t mark them. They should be coming out of the walls saying she never let them mark them.
      The next shoe to drop will be when it can be shown that her lack of secrecy could have very well led to the death of the men in Benghazi when the wrong people got hold of her unencrypted messages. She deserves jail time yet will blame ignorance. Ignorance she would have had in the White House had she made it there.

        @TRONGOD2000: You are close to the truth because two of the ‘top secret’ emails was about Stevens and his movements on that fateful day and discussing his whereabouts as well as date, time and place. (Now it makes sense that those who came to slaughter or take Stevens knew exactly where he was)
        The other one dealt with the location of ‘French jets’ who were taking part in the bombing campaign. Again – it was openly discussed where they were parked, time and date for their short down time.
        Intelligence agents who were there in Benghazi that time – but are unable to speak openly or publicly about these f-ups of Hillary and her aide Huma – are livid because Stevens and others were at risk to be slaughtered due to the carelessness of a SOS and her aide discussing these movements on that day openly in an almost public email.
        The same is for the French jets being also openly discussed about the location, date among other issues.
        Many in the intelligence community – active and retired – are demanding that Hillary’s security clearance be revoked as well as that of her aide Huma – if she ever had one!

        It can’t get any more damning than that!
        Hillary’s lawyer has a flash drive for safekeeping from Hillary whih he supposedly turned over to the FBI although I doubt it includes the 30,000 emails she willingly and maliciously deleted.

      Depends on the particular shoe you are talking about!

      Is it the “We will finally see on that server the details of her private war in Libya and Syria?” I say no. There is no way Obama will ever let that happen.

      Is it the “There was classified data on that server?” That depends. Depends on what Obama wants released and how good the IT guy was working for her. This is assuming the server is the one they used.

      Is it the “Obama wants the Clintons to go away so he can rule the party forever?” I say yes. He wants to be the new head of the Democrats. That is worth billions- as we’ve seen. To do that, he needs to unseat the Clintons from the center of power. This is a political and philosophical shift in the democrats. Something not really seen since the New Deal shift (historic times folks). He can’t have that for four to eight years IF Hillary wins. He is not a patient man- as we have also seen.

      This is big time, hard ball politics. They don’t give a rats butt about what happened to any person involved in Benghazi or Libya or Syria or ISIS. Those tens of thousands of deaths are mere blips to the desire to rule the party. What did Stalin say? A man’s death is a tragedy. A million deaths is a statistic?

      Valerie Jarrett is running this show because she’ll be running Obama’s empire when it is formed.

    This is such fine kabuki – everyone pretending that somehow the mythical “server” hasn’t been thoroughly cleaned before surrendering it, and that somehow the contents of the mysterious “thumbdrives” is in any way complete versus what was originally on the server. Anything still found there is something that the Clintoons are willing to have found, it’ll be interesting but not damning. Hillary isn’t going anyplace. That said, however, there may be some poor schmuck that’s going to have to step up and take one for the team, but I don’t think it’ll be Huma.

    So her excuse for having Top Secret information on her unsecured server is that it wasn’t labeled “Top Secret”? As Secretary of State, shouldn’t she be able to recognize top secret information without someone labeling it for her?

      Okay – starting to understand this a little more ~

      The defense is that this material was not technically classified at the time that it was sent. Thus it was not “classified” information. The problem is that it was not reviewed and classified because it was kept out of the State Department system. Moreover, most high-level communications are treated as classified and only individually marked as classified when there is a request for disclosure. You do not generate material as the Secretary of State and assume that it is unclassified. You are supposed to assume and treat it as presumptively classified….This is the whole reason that Clinton and others were told to use the protected email system run by the State Department. We have spent hundreds of millions of dollars to secure such systems.

  17. speaking as one who has held a TS/SCI clearance (SSBI)….this is the textbook gov definition of top secret information : TOP SECRET shall be applied to information, the unauthorized disclosure of which reasonably could be expected to cause exceptionally grave damage to the national security.

    so potentially info of this magnitude is what this woman was emailing and discussing…there are special networks specifically designed for the transmission of information at secret (SIPR) and above (JWICS). i know people who have lost their clearances and received non-judicial punishment for mishandling info at the lower CLASSIFIED level….it makes me sick to my stomach to know that no matter what the outcome of the FBIs investigation is the odds of her ever receiving any form of prosecution or punishment is next to zero.
