New Hillary Excuse: The Classification Rules Are Super Confusing and Stuff

Posted: Aug 21, 2015 2:00 PM

As I wrote earlier, Hillary Clinton and her team of loyal staffers have given the American public a laundry list of excuses about why she used a private email server to conduct government business during her time as Secretary of State. As revelations about her server containing top secret, classified information have come to light, Clinton has continued the excuses. 

Now, Clinton is digging up another one (as the rest continue to fail) and is blaming "ridiculous" classification laws in an effort to claim ignorance. 

First, Clinton is a government attorney who knows how the law and classification works. Second, thanks to an executive order from President Obama, Clinton was in charge of labeling classified information during her time as Secretary of State. Third and most importantly, Clinton said in March, "I'm certainly well-aware of the classification requirements and did not send classified material." Fourth, ignorance is not a defense. And finally fifth, classification laws are "ridiculous" because American lives and the national security of the United States depends on it. 

It's the old cliche: Throwing spaghetti at the wall to see what sticks. So far, it isn't working.
