Hillary Clinton has also now spoken up regarding the FBI raid of Mar-a-Lago to say that the way former President Donald Trump handled documents was “deeply disturbing.” She also denied allegations that she had classified information stored in her private email server at home.
During a speech at the Texas Tribune Festival in Austin, Clinton said that Trump’s position regarding the whole ordeal has changed multiple times. At first, he claimed that nothing was there and that the “FBI planted it” all and then the materials that were in his possession, he had declassified it in his mind.
Clinton also said that she is tired of having to talk about her emails, especially since there were two FBI investigations and two separate State Department investigations that have said that none of the materials she had were classified.
Former FBI Director James Comey had not recommended that Clinton be prosecuted but had noted that the “110 e-mails in 52 e-mail chains have been determined by the owning agency to contain classified information.” He had also said that 8 chains had been marked as top secret level and 36 chains were marked secret.
In 2016, Clinton had accused Comey of having made the accusations to stop voters from supporting her in the 2016 elections. She also added that the emails discovered were on Anthony Weiner’s laptop. Two days before the election, Comey had cleared her of any possible charges in an email.
Clinton also sarcastically said, should she ever be secretary of state again she is going to use the “unsecured often-hacked-into state department servers,” instead of a more secure server.
The Department of Justice Inspector General 2018 said that in their investigation they found “81 email chains containing approximately 193 individual emails that were classified from the CONFIDENTIAL to TOP SECRET levels at the time the emails were drafted on UNCLASSIFIED systems and sent to or from Clinton’s personal server.”
