Is Hilary Done?

After months of denials, shocker comes today that a Clinton and cronies were lying through their teeth.

via The Daily Beast

Clinton and her campaign operatives have repeatedly denied that she had placedclassified information in her personal email while serving as Secretary of State during President Obama’s first term. (“I am confident that I never sent nor received any information that was classified at the time it was sent and received,” she said last month.) Her team also denied that she would ever hand over her server to investigators. Now both those assertions have been overturned.

Hillary Clinton has little choice but to hand over her server to authorities since it’s now appears increasingly likely that someone on her staff violated Federal laws regarding the handling of classified materials. On August 11, after extensive investigation, the Intelligence Community’s Inspector General reported to Congress that it had found several violations of security policy in Clinton’s personal emails.

Most seriously, the Inspector General assessed that Clinton’s emails included information that was highly classified—yet mislabeled as unclassified. Worse, the information in question should have been classified up to the level of “TOP SECRET//SI//TK//NOFORN,” according to the Inspector General’s report.

You may have seen acronym lists like these on declassified documents before—and glazed over them. This is the arcane language of the cleared cognoscenti so let me explain what this means:

• TOP SECRET, as the name implies, is the highest official classification level in the U.S. government, defined as information whose unauthorized release “could cause exceptionally grave damage to national security or foreign relations.”

Is she done? Does this ensure that the Dem nominee will be a 73 yr old socialist or Jar Jar Biden? Any chance that the party sticks with Clinton and tries to ride this out? I'm curious how supporters or progressives in general are feeling about this. Elizabeth Warren has to be kicking herself, she'd be a practical shoe in at this point.

You know this is wishful thinking on your part, since Hillary is clearly the leader from both sides. As much as I like sanders, I do not see young voters getting off the butts for the primaries to get him the nomination. I think the best that will happen is Hillary adopt some of his ideals to get the youth on her side.

I think the bigger problem is Trump for the republicans. He may kill this election for them, since he is saying that he will run third party. I could see a decent margin of people voting for him as the third party candidate.

The average voter will have no idea what any of this means. It's just red tape to them. Private emails and severs will be lost in a flurry of buzzwords. If we can get some fat juicy content on the other hand we might be talking.

Fox news will over play it's hand though cause that's just what they do. They'll try to beat her over the head with it repeat repeat repeat. The right will get all up in arms over it.....and in the end no one else will care. If this is going to be her Waterloo we'll need alot more.

Lest we not forget that David Patraeus got taken down for a lot less of a security breach but then again Patraeus is a conservative...just sayin'

He was also cheating on his wife which is a crime in the military.Hillary looks guilty of sloppy record keeping, whats a few top secrets more or less? The Russians and the Chinese have probably known about this for a long time anyway.Big deal for Fox News, ssdd

Doesn't it bother you, at least a little bit, that a normal person could face up to 3 years in prison for making the same "mistake" she made? Selective prosecution and sentencing is a problem. I don't care who a person is, if there is a law broken, they should face the same consequences as if it was committed by any other citizen. When they are a "leader", there is an argument that they should face harsher punishment because they have a personal responsibility to everyone else in the country and they are supposed to set the example. The wrist slapping crap we see for the well-connected is disgusting.

Unfortunately, Hillary is not done. Theres still a lot of stupidity in America.

Exactly, Just read the post here. So what that our side lies again and again gets caught. We really do not care what laws they break because it is our side. WOW! Once again do not be surprised when she is not the candidate you all hoped for.

No one said they didn't care.

i think it's a huge deal. But the Republicans have cried wolf so many times that no one is listening anymore. Benghazi, the IRS, Obama everything... I think people are just numb to anything they say at this point and probably rightfully so.

And as I said before, this is totally something that a staffer can take the fall for. If anyone watches the show Veep, this is a Dan Egan screwup.

People know the political machine is rigged to shake off anything in regards to the big name candidates. The owners of the candidates own the media outlets and control the narrative. Saying that it won't hurt her is not saying that they don't care about her negligence. It's a lost cause.

she isn't done but she should be between this and and her actions with the Swiss banks

but those that root for the Democrats like their favorite football team ignore all wrongdoing by their side much like the Republicans

The sad reality here.

This is one place where Trump may be able to live up to his "Im Hillary's worst nightmare" claim. Whatever you think of Trump, he has a knack for making a point. A good smokescreen could make this seem like no big deal, but the right loudmouth could change the narrative to something like "Hillary lied about hiding and losing Top Secret Classified material. Is that the kind of incompetence you want in a President?"

Trump's presence only helps Hillary. The more blatantly racist and sexist things that he's says, the less attention Hillary's own shitgoonery gets.
