Columnist Charles Krauthammer stated the fact that Democratic presidential candidate former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails contained SAP information is “worse than what Snowden did” according to some he’s talked to, and Hillary had information that “if it’s compromised, people die” on Tuesday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel.
Krauthammer said, “What people have to understand is that there is nothing higher, more secret than an SAP. And that, from some people I’ve talked to this is worse than what Snowden did, because he didn’t have access to SAP. And that, if this is compromised, this is so sensitive, that the reason — and the reason it is is that, as a result, if it’s compromised, people die. It also means that operations that have been embedded for years and years get destroyed and cannot be reconstituted. This is very serious. Petraeus, as was mentioned earlier, he pled guilty because precisely this kind of information he shared. And I don’t see, given the fact that it’s the inspector general of the intelligence community who was writing this officially to the Intelligence Committee heads in Congress that there is any way to contradict this. It’s not a news story. This is an investigative story. And now it’s in the hands of the FBI, it’s hard to imagine that the Department of Justice will ignore this, or wave it away.”
