State Department Deputy Spokesperson Mark Toner had the unenviable task of defending his agency’s obviously complicit and compromised role in the security breaches associated with the tenure of Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State. His job is made more difficult by virtue of the fact that the cover up continues to this date and it’s anybody’s guess to what extent the breaches are still taking place.
On the topic of security breaches, Toner is asked, “Is the State Department confident that nobody breached the Secretary’s private server? Sometimes it’s those simple, direct questions that are the hardest ones for these guys to wiggle away from.
He did his best, replying, “Uh, again I don’t have an answer for you on that, that’s uh, I, I, I, I don’t know.”
A little honesty, even if it is out of desperation, is a refreshing change at the State Department.
Honesty is not the same thing as transparency, though and as the second video confirms, a little bit is all we’re going to get. The cover-up continued regarding several questions, such as who authorized Hillary Clinton to have her own private server, how high up the chain the knowledge of the existence of the private server went and whether anybody in the State Department building was against the special arrangement Clinton had with herself.
Though Toner won’t say who authorized the server, he does admit that its existence was known at every level, from the email interchanges that took place. He chooses not to answer regarding objections to the illegal arrangement. Honesty has its limits, particularly within the Obama administration, where it has no place.
