What is This?! Hillary Clinton Poses at Fake Presidential Desk Looking Through Her Emails

As part of an "art" exhibit, twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton decided it was a good idea to sit at a fake Oval Office Resolute Desk and read her emails for more than an hour. She also publicized the stunt.

Francesco Urbano Ragazzi is the artist behind the display, who told The Hill, "In the digital age, making these documents available to everyone in a touchable format is a way to focus on something concrete in order to exit the impalpable toxicity of ideological narratives" and "The exhibition is a way to allude to an alternative world that will never exist. We are happy that the real Hillary Clinton has been part of this image full of possibilities,” the curatorial team continued. “Visiting HILLARY by Kenneth Goldsmith, she has not only been in front of her emails. The exhibition is indeed the portrait of a powerful woman, but also the portrait of a historical change in our understanding of notions such as transparency, propaganda, public and private space.”

As a reminder, Clinton shared top secret, classified information on various private, unsecure email server. She put American secrets at risk, in addition to the lives of human sources in hostile countries around the world. After a lengthy and criminal FBI investigation, Clinton and her staff were found to be "extremely careless" when handling classified information. 

"There is evidence they [Clinton and staff] were extremely careless in their handling of classified information," then FBI Director James Comey said in 2016. "Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case. Prosecutors necessarily weigh a number of factors before deciding whether to bring charges."

"One hundred-and-ten emails in 52 email chains have been determined by the owning agency to contain classified information at the time they were sent or received. Eight of those chains contained information that was top secret, at the time they were sent, 36 of those chains contained secret information and eight contained confidential information at the time," Comey continued.

Further, Clinton destroyed evidence and thousands of emails with bleach bit and hammers.
