Clinton does not believe she has an obligation to protect classified information unless it is properly marked. She said that yesterday.

This is important, and it's new, and it's worse than anything we've yet found out about her mishandling of classified information.

She said that if it is not properly marked, there is no reason to suspect the information is classified. This absolutely violates the law's view of her obligations. As Comey said, "even if information is not marked “classified” in an e-mail, participants who know or should know that the subject matter is classified are still obligated to protect it."

It's inconceivable that Clinton would not know a topic so sensitive it is Top Secret would not know the topic is classified.

Her views of her obligations to classified information, as a U.S. government official, are completely out of line with what the law actually expects of her. It's worse than her mishandling of the information, and worse than her lies about mishandling it. You can dismiss those things as carelessness, politics, manipulating the media, and so on.

But this ... this shows she just has no respect for what the law requires of her. At best, she is lying about this too, to save herself ... which means she is willing to diminish the law by encouraging others to accept the disrespect she is selling, in order to protect herself. And that's completely awful, too. G+

I think that having a President who is a bully who tears people up, who doesn't listen, who doesn't ... was the previous entry in this site.

To me, it is obvious that Trump was not serious when he implied that someone could shoot Hillary. But... is the next entry in this site.
