The long slow release of emails sent to and from Secretary Hillary Clinton using her personal emaill on her private home server continues to produce revelations, as we’ve been covering here at RedState. The latest is pretty much definitive proof that Hillary lied when she said many, many times that the classified information that was sent in her email was not marked classified at the time.
There is a lot of information in this excellent report by Fox News’ Catherine Herridge, but this snippet tells you the most important point:
But a 2012 email released by the State Department appears to challenge that claim because it carries a classified code known as a “portion marking” – and that marking was on the email when it was sent directly to Clinton’s account.
The “C” – which means it was marked classified at the confidential level – is in the left-hand-margin and relates to an April 2012 phone call with Malawi’s first female president, Joyce Banda, who took power after the death of President Mutharika in 2012.
“(C) Purpose of Call: to offer condolences on the passing of President Mukharika and congratulate President Banda on her recent swearing in.”
Everything after that was fully redacted before it was publicly released by the State Department — a sign that the information was classified at the time and dealt with sensitive government deliberations.
A US government source said there are other Clinton emails with classified markings, or marked classified, beyond the April 2012 document.
There will be more, says the source. Of that, I have no doubt. Her excuses have all been flimsy and not believable.
What it boils down to is simple: despite her repeated claim, a claim repeatedly tirelessly by the media and by Democrat and liberal blogs and on social media, that even though some of the information that was sent through Hillary’s personal email on her private server was sensitive, it was not marked as classified at the time it was sent. They have claimed again and again that the material only became classified later.
In fact, she not only said it often, she said it this week:
On Wednesday, Clinton told Bret Baier on Special Report, “the fact is, nothing that I sent or received was marked classified, and nothing has been demonstrated to contradict that.”
Wrong. There it is, right there. Here’s the full email, via Fox News. (click for full size).
