As we reported last night, Sen. Diane Feinstein and former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm are among the Hillary Clinton defenders who are deflecting responsibility for her emails, arguing that the highly sensitive information was not “marked classified.”

Feinstein and Granholm should take a look at this document signed by Hillary Clinton at the time she assumed the office of secretary of state:

Well look at that!

Editor’s note: This post has been updated to correct a mistake in the spelling of Jennifer Granholm’s first name.

  • John Howard

    If she wasn’t surrounded by so many with their own closets full of skeletons, she’d be in jail already.

    • Donald-Now 3x as Deplorable

      Not to mention ALL the skeletons she help create. Vince Foster, Ron Brown, Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, to name six. Never forget, NEVER FORGIVE.

      • soxfan4evah

        And all the babies killed by her “hero” Margaret Sangers legacy.

        • Donald-Now 3x as Deplorable

          Amen, my friend.

    • RSnyder

      The Obama administration along with their media wing, the drive-by media, have so corrupted the political landscape that accountability exists in name only anymore. How many times have we heard the words “I take full responsibility . . . ” from Obama or one of his jackals; meaning, I take full responsibility — read I am fully accountable, but instead of that marking the beginning of the process of being held accountable, it’s the end. A dead end.

      • Petrucio14

        In the Obama administration, and in the Hillary campaign, the words “I take full responsibility” actually mean “I have found someone else to blame all of this shit on”.

        • rich614

          And if you keep talking about it you may be Vince Foster’ed.

  • Anthony

    Let’s not forget that she had a server in her bathroom that contained government documents classified and unclassified.

    • Hotlanta Mike

      Let’s not forget that Chelsea and Bill (the Clinton Foundation) had access to this information as well…

    • syvyn11

      Hey, maybe she needed some reading material in the bathroom and she was tired of reading Bill’s Playboys?

      • Donald-Now 3x as Deplorable

        Playboy magazine is much too tame for Bubba. If I had to suggest what’s more in line with Bill’s choice in magazines, I’d say Hustler, founded by Larry Flynt or Screw magazine, founded by Al Goldstein.

  • libertyluvur

    Feinstein knows better than that…she’s flat out lying. She on the committee who hears classified details and has often commented that she can’t comment on classified info. If a Sec of State can’t read what she signed, knows we are being hacked then put top and above top secret in a place where it can be easily hacked is not only not fit to be president, she is only fit to be tried and convicted of treason….20 yrs to life!

    • Donald-Now 3x as Deplorable

      I thought the penalty for treason was to be executed, and where that applies to that lying harpy/harridan, I have no problem with that being carried out, immediately, if not sooner.

      • rich614

        Well, yeah, if YOU did it.

  • TooFarGone1 ✓NeverTrump

    I will never understand the mindset of leftists. Unthinking allegiance to an unaccountable and immoral “leader” is never a good idea. That same stupidity since 2008 has already almost been the death of America.

  • JohnFLob

    Is Hillary still feeling flush with success?

    • MarciaTheMurkyMuse? Variegated


    • Donald-Now 3x as Deplorable

      Shrillary SHOULD BE flushed with extreme prejudice.

    • BillinDetroit

      Nah … she took too much Niacin. The flush will go away.

  • Patrick Albanese

    A lot of people defended Richard Nixon…. Until they couldn’t.
    A lot of people defended Bill Clinton….. Until they couldn’t.

    I sense a Three-Peat.

    • Tessa from Texas

      I am fervently praying that it comes soon–I am so tired of hearing about her latest lies.

  • McGruff

    Oh my!

  • John Hitchcock

    A whole lot of Hillary supporters over here defending her. What? They’re NOT here? Imagine that.

    • Grumpy

      They prefer their echo chambers where everyone sings the same song

      • SR5150

        Yup, right-wing sites DEFINITELY aren’t like that.

        • Grumpy

          Not really interested in arguing over which is blacker, the pot or the kettle.

          In a thread about Hillary and Hillary supporters LW echo chambers are on-topic, RW echo chambers are a diversion

  • Dan Abbett

    Anymore, revelations on a daily basis rise to the level of criminal with respect to Hillary and her “not-so-private” email server. It is undeniable any yet, no one in any public position will call a spade, a spade. There is no ambiguity here and the document she signed makes that abundantly clear. Hand down the freaking indictment already.

  • Stephen

    You say tomato…

  • The DUKE

    I did not have sexual relations with that woman. I did not have sexual relations with that personal email server crammed full of classified information.

  • Karla1953

    And yet the news was all about a candidate that did not show up and now getting bit my a mosquito from Brazil. This gets touched on barely and the Dems are the usual nothing to see here move along or the ole stand by right wing conspiracy.

  • seif jerbi

    Let’s not forget that she had a server in her bathroom that contained government documents classified and unclassified.

  • NeoKong

    This has gotten to the point where we can longer pretend this is an act of incompetence.
    That server was set up to allow secrets to be stolen.
    We have never seen so many large sensitive date breaches as we have with this administration.

  • Frustrated Teacher

    Amazing how her spinners and defenders seem to know a LOT more about these emails than has been released….either they also read them or they are just lying to cover her lying ass and hoping you will believe it (and most of THEIR voters won’t even question the discrepancy).

  • Suzyqpie

    Procrastination and various delaying techniques, as a strategy, have served Obama very well.
    How does the same strategy serve Obama in the case of his SoS Hillary and the debris field she has created with her fisher-price server.

  • NonPCconservative

    Hillary, who spent the first nine months of her existence as a lifeless, parasitic clump of cells (according to her own publicly stated views), has spent the rest of her life trying to be even more successfully parasitic without the slightest concern that she may kill the host.

    • Donald-Now 3x as Deplorable

      Her first nine months as a lifeless, parasitic, clump of cells? I would think that applies to her entire life, only the clump of cells of got bigger, MORE lifeless, MORE parasitic, riding the coat tails of the host, a lousy governor and a bigger failure as president, since Jimmy “The Peanut Farmer” Carter held the office.

  • Steve Muckler

    The next house that Hillary occupies isn’t the White House, it;s the Big House.

  • LucienCordier

    I don’t believe that any of these corrupt people will ever face punishment through the American judicial system. Maybe at least some of them will get cancer or burn in house fires.

    • soxfan4evah

      If they continue at this rate they will be facing some vigilante justice.

      • LucienCordier

        That’s what I’m hoping for, but I doubt it. I say let’s party like it’s 1793.

    • Aparition42

      For Clinton liver failure is more likely.

  • SnarkyGCat

    We have it in black & white, highlighted so there’s zero doubt she has culpability in mishandling classified docs. Liberals will claim the doc is fakery & does not apply to Hillgrannie.

    Sadly, they are Americans and allowed to vote. Isn’t harboring & abetting one who committed treason a felony by any means punishable by a jail term?

    Better rethink your support oh her or you too can wear a taxpayer bought jumpsuit.

    • Aparition42

      To top it all off, none of the excuses even matter.

      44 USC Chapter 31 SS 3105:

      “The head of each Federal agency shall establish safeguards against the removal or loss of records the head of such agency determines to be necessary and required by regulations of the Archivist. Safeguards shall include making it known to officials and employees of the agency–

      (1) that records in the custody of the agency are not to be alienated or destroyed except in accordance with sections 3301-3314 of this title, and

      (2) the penalties provided by law for the unlawful removal or destruction of records.”

      In other words, as Secretary of State she was responsible for making sure no one else did what she admits to doing. I.E. her defense is gross negligence and incompetence in the execution of her sworn duties. “It’s not my fault because I’m stupid.” isn’t something I want to hear from a presidential candidate.

  • Michelle ✓classified

    And the media is ignoring all this. I hate the media.

  • American

    Yeah, claiming it wasn’t classified since it wasn’t “marked” classified doesn’t make it unclassified information. Especially when cutting and pasting from classified documents and then emailing it…let alone to a non-governmental, non-secure destination.
    Crime after crime after crime…Guilty!

    • Roto ✓Intentionally Left Blank

      And I pity the poor schmucks who were forced to do the “cutting and pasting” of their TS data just because Cackles wanted it. They’re the ones who’ll lose their careers because of her, while gets off scot-free.

      • Aparition42

        Don’t waste any pity on individuals who lack the personal integrity it takes to tell their boss that they’re not going to do something illegal. I’ve got eighteen year old Airman Recruits with more Honor and Courage than that.

        • Roto ✓Intentionally Left Blank

          In my experience, it’s not that simple or a lack of integrity. If your GS-15 or SES is standing over you, telling you to pull the information and send it, you’re not going to forfeit your Govt. pension not to do it. Plus, if they ordered it, you cross your fingers and assume THEY will take the hit (which is the most likely scenario for the DIA, NGA, NSA, etc. analysts who sent TS+ material onto her network).

          I haven’t been told to override Reg.’s and send TS material, but I have been told to skew a TON of DOD technical and budget information in the Govt.’s favor by a GS-15 or SES to get a program approved. I hated to do it, because **I** was the Program Analyst who knew the data and developed the results from grass roots. I ALWAYS kept a copy of MY opinion, AND a copy of the final Govt. documents (i.e. THIS was my recommendation, and HERE’S what went on the DD-form).

          • Aparition42

            I see what you’re saying, but that’s not really in the same league. If a superior has final signature authority, and you’ve given your recommendation to the best of your ability, then it’s on the superior bottom lining the document. If it’s not a matter of safety or OPSEC, you’ve done your job. If the fudge factor is truly egregious, there’s always the fraud, waste, and abuse hotline.

            The latest word form the investigation claims passages were actually cut and pasted from SIPRNET to be sent via NIPRNET. It’s more like a superior asking you to send your budget recommendation for a sensitive project to their hotmail rather than through channels because they “want to work from home”.

          • Roto ✓Intentionally Left Blank

            You’re absolutely right and I totally agree on my safety, OPSEC, and WFA Hotline example. It went the other way sometimes too — Raytheon told our O-6 they were going to “use $200 million of internal RDT&E funding for their software bill” (i.e. “eat it to win the production business” 🙂 on a new FLIR they were building for the F/A-18. I told my Captain that’s total buIIshit and they would charge it to us somehow. So I spread $200M in the last 3 years of our RDT&E schedule, and, sure enough, they “overran” even though their s/w metrics were right on the EVM targets.

            And that’s what I’ve been saying all along about those poor DIA, NGA, analysts — they HAD to DELIBERATELY pull their TS+ images off THEIR own “SIPRNET” and send them onto her unsecured .com network. But, I’m not even sure if it’s even electronically possible for NGA to get their images off their “SIPRNET” at Belvoir, and onto her network, without sending it to the DoS first. If so, that would prove that the culprits were only at the DoS.

            I don’t think any of the USB ports or CD drives are even installed on our DOD SIPRNET machines — everything has to be stored on the airgapped SharePoint server. That’s it. No external storage media.

    • Aparition42

      Even being broadly published doesn’t remove classification. I distinctly recall the impromptu, all-hands training warning us not to visit the Wikileaks web site because viewing classified information is grounds for charges. Which leads to another big question: who received classified info from this unclass server?

      The White House is up against it on this one. If the documents are unclass and do not discuss official business, why not release them? No matter what’s on them, as long as they remain unreleased, a lot of people are going to assume the worst. Why would the President invoke executive privilege to hide mundane, personal pleasantries?

  • Linda

    I wonder if the New York Times is aware of the document that she signed yet endorses her anyway????

  • Dan13

    Hillary signed the disclosure form without reading it, so, clearly, she is innocent of all wrongdoing, including her quid pro quos in exchange for State Dept influence.

    • constitutionminded

      She was probably drunk.

  • Aparition42

    Everyone keeps talking about classification when it’s a federal offense to use an unofficial server to store unsecured official documents.

    Pay particular attention to 3105 and 3106.

    She is an admitted felon even if nothing on her private server was classified.

  • Doowight

    If Hillary had an (R) next to her name, the MSM would be calling for her head on a platter, and all the late night shows would be cracking wise about her criminal activities. Tina Fey would even make a special appearance on SNL.
