As the deception surrounding Hillary Clinton’s Espionage Act violations and the associated cover-up continues to unravel, the number of classified emails that were either sent or received on Clinton’s private, unsecured server has risen for a guaranteed total of zero to over 400. The existence of another 215 new classified emails was just revealed and the information, published by Politico, shows that three of those were of the intermediate “secret” security level.
Of the three “secret” emails, one was inconsequential, the other two contained references to the Iranian nuclear program. In light of the recent weakly conducted “negotiations” by the State Department in the interest of Iran, it’s something that bears a more in depth look. While surely the Kerry team is fully capable of burdening the American people with a horrible deal on their own, the Iranians having insight into what we were thinking, what actions were likely and what they could get away with could not have helped by enhance their position and diminished ours. Having said that, one has to wonder just how much effort, if any, went into the secrecy aspect of secret negotiations.
According to Politico, “two of the just-released SECRET emails pertain to talks about the Iranian nuclear program, conducted by a group of nations referred to as the P5+1. The messages are from January 21 and 22, 2011 and were forwarded to Clinton’s private account by Deputy Chief of Staff Jake Sullivan, who now serves as policy director on Clinton’s presidential campaign.”
Additionally, “The substance of the two emails was redacted from the public release, but the subject lines identify the messages as summaries of the nuclear talks underway in Istanbul, Turkey. A State Department spokesman said that message, and the others deemed classified, were not marked as such when they were sent to Sullivan by other State officials.”
Obama’s Iranian Senior Adviser, Valerie Jarrett, would likely have no objection to open book negotiations with her home country nor would any of the other members of our own “JV” Squad that were involved in preparing the Iranian agreement. The end product and the methods employed suggest that the agreement was structured to provide the Iranians with whatever they wanted.
There was also evidence of hacking attempts that appear to have originated in Russia of the type which release a virus when an attachment is opened, although it is unknown if the attachment was ever opened, releasing the compromising bug. There were at least five such attempts which occurred in August of 2011.
In continuing the “much ado about nothing” defense, Clinton campaign spokesman Nick Merrill said on Wednesday, “We have no evidence to suggest she replied to this email nor that she clicked on the attachment. As we have said before, there is no evidence that the system was ever breached. All these emails show is that, like millions of other Americans, she received spam.”
Not exactly, Nick, millions of Americans don’t have Iranian nuclear negotiation information on their computers. That kind of makes her situation different from the rest of us.
