61. “Extreme” FBI Attacks

9 Jul

Powerful and brave Hillary Clinton is still standing and running after many years of ridiculous and malicious abuse by desperate GOP officials. They cannot win on the important presidential issues and are forced to rely on inane character assassination. I have discussed the nonsensical Benghazi issue in previous blogs. Here is my detailed analysis of the email question.

Hillary has always maintained that she did not send out any emails that were marked classified. She did send or receive a number of emails that were as some point classified, but none of them were correctly marked at the time with a classification header. This is consistent with what she has always said.

Hillary sent three emails out of 30,000 with a (C) marking buried in the text — but without required “confidential” headings. That is one minor error per 10,000.

“Guccifer”, the hacker, confessed that he actually did not hack Hillary’s email. This is part of the desperately-lying mentality of Hillary haters.

Rep. John Mica (Republican) hinted at conspiracy, but his nasty innuendo was angrily rejected by FBI Director Comey.

The type of email-server used by Clinton was traditional for  Secretary’s of State and was used by Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice.  It has also been used by many other public officials that did handle classified info.  (So why the “extreme” carelessness)

FBI Director Comey seems to be intelligent and reasonable, and has tried to be impartial, but has had a Republican affiliation. We thank him for not charging her. But does his GOP background explain why he said that the email carelessness was “extreme”. Does three (improperly marked) classified email transmissions out of more than 30,000 seem “extreme” to anyone? Most would say “a little careless” or not careless at all. Who is so perfect that they could do all of 30,000 things, perfectly. Comey might argue that she should have recognized some documents as requiring classification, but that is very subjective. Classifications are not permanent and change at times. There are no specific rules to cover all situations. Testimony at the recent Oversight committee hearing suggests that the (c) classification could be misinterpreted.

My only argument with FBI Director Comey is his characterization of “extreme” carelessness. Most people would accept what she did as just a small number of understandable errors. And certainly this highly intelligent candidate would be even more conscientious in the future handling of documents than other candidates. If Republicans who handled classified info were examined for a year, like Hillary, what would be the finding. Lets have the FBI check-out every email sent by Speaker Paul Ryan and see if he does better than: one error in 10,000.
