Hillary Clinton Not Savvy Enough to Understand Email Classification?

classifiedFBI Director James Comey testified before Congress that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton may not have been “sophisticated enough” to understand what the classified markings on emails meant. This lack of “sophistication” was used to explain Clinton’s lack of knowledge that she was breaking the law and hence an absence of intent.

Clinton has now been identified, under oath by the head of the FBI, as perhaps nothing more than a rube unable to understand basic classifications that tens of thousands of others interspersed throughout the federal government are required to follow.

Comey’s remark comes after his agents grilled the presumptive Democratic nominee for three-and-a-half hours in a session that was not under oath just a couple of days prior to the announcement not to prosecute.

It must be incredibly galling to the former secretary of State, who has often been characterized as one of the smartest people in politics, that her key to freedom might be the FBI director’s determination that she can’t chew gum and walk.

In Clinton’s defense, she was sophisticated enough on June 17, 2011 to instruct Jacob Sullivan, who was having trouble sending a secure fax to, “turn [the document] into nonpaper w [sic] no identifying heading and send nonsecure.”

Incredibly, none of the Democrats on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee rose to defend her intellect by pointing to her direction to work around the “problem” of sending a secure fax by simply stripping away the security classification. It would seem that this would have been the ultimate defense of their anointed candidate for president as her intellectual reputation was battered by Comey’s determination.
