The State Department released 2,000 documents late Friday that would seem to net more trouble for Hillary Clinton. Documents and emails were included in the release, but at issue are the 22 emails the Obama Administration is steadfastly refusing to release, which are deemed too sensitive for anyone to see, even the federal court that ordered Hillary and the State Department to turn them over.
For the first time since the beginning of the Clinton email scandal, the State Department has admitted that at least 22 of the emails in question are too dangerous and explosive to be released. This means that by merely making such a claim, State has just confirmed that Hillary kept the most sensitive, top secret documents on her private, unsecured server at her home — which has been at the center of a scandal concerning whether or not Hillary broke the law in doing so, or at least ran afoul of the State Department’s regulations concerning the handling of top secret documents.
A federal judge in the U.S. district court in D.C. has made it clear on several occasions that Hillary Clinton and the State Department must come clean about the emails and documents. This would mean the emails and documents must be released to the court so that a determination can be made concerning whether or not felonies have been committed. Some of the rules, regulations, and laws concerning the handling of top secret documents rise to the level of felonies. It was for this reason that Judge Emmet Sullivan of the U.S. federal court issued a direct court order last July that all of Hillary’s emails and documents be turned over to the court. Several court set deadlines came and went with no compliance from Hillary or the State Department. It was then that Sullivan laid down the law and ordered that at least 2,000 documents per batch be turned over regularly until all of the 7,000 documents in question were in the hands of the court. Clinton and State did not comply, however.
In the latest Friday night document dump, State apologized to Judge Sullivan for its noncompliance and offered the explanation that some of the documents on Clinton’s private server were too sensitive and carried with them the highest level of the top secret classification. It is precisely here that State’s explanation may be read as an inadvertent admission that violations of federal law — felonies to be exact — may have been committed. Yet in spite of State’s explanation, the department continues to engage in some of the very activity that rises to the level of felonies. Top secret documents from Hillary’s private server are still being withheld from the court in spite of Judge Sullivan’s direct order.
According to Fox Business Network’s veteran newsman Lou Dobbs, the State Department appears to be holding fast to the documents, refusing once again to turn them over.
