Another day means more news that Hillary Clinton’s email server, storage and messages were, you guessed it, not secure whatsoever.
Another chapter has been added to Hillary Clinton’s ongoing email fiasco; the State Department has admitted to investigators that the method in which Clinton’s lawyer could review the emails was not secure enough. Why? They didn’t think highly classified information that was sent through the server would be, indeed,that sensitive (via Associated Press):
The State Department has told Senate investigators that it didn’t provide Hillary Rodham Clinton’s lawyer with a secure-enough method to read now-highly classified material from her homebrew email server because it didn’t anticipate that the messages would be deemed so secret.In July, State Department officials installed a safe at the office of attorney David Kendall after the government determined some of Clinton’s emails may have contained classified information. But it said last week the safe wasn’t suitable for so-called top secret, sensitive compartmented information, known as TS/SCI, which the government has said was found in some messages.
Assistant Secretary of State Julia Frifield wrote to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley on Sept. 22 that “while the safe was suitable for up to (top secret) information, it was not approved for TS/SCI material” because the material wasn’t held in a facility set up for discussing highly secret information, known as a SCIF, or sensitive compartmented information facility.
Those questions were not an issue at the time the safe was installed because “there was no indication that the emails might contain TS or TS/SCI material,” Frifield wrote in the letter obtained by The Associated Press. Kendall has a top secret security clearance.
