Oh, good. The Hillary Clinton campaign is finally going to educate all of us slack-jawed yokels on State Department “classification process.”
That’s right, morons. You’re welcome.
Clinton campaign communications director Jennifer Palmieri tells The Huffington Post that the campaign is planning “an end-of-summer effort to educate the public on the classification process for national security material.” It’s a step in a three-part plan that will see Clinton also talking more about policy issues and more about her record as Secretary of State.
The Clinton campaign is reeling from the Department of Justice/FBI investigation into her private email use as Secretary of State.
Palmieri initially tried to mollify the scandal by claiming that Clinton never sent or received emails on her private server that were classified when they were sent — “born classified.” The campaign’s other spokesman, Brian Fallon, said that Clinton was the victim of “overclassification.”
Aside from the fact that it would be completely absurd for a Secretary of State to go four years without sending classified emails, Palmieri’s talking point was false. Breitbart News reported that some of Clinton’s emails were, in fact, classified when originated. Reuters confirmed that fact for the mainstream media Friday.
But we look forward to this new education initiative on the national-security classification process. Will it involve colorful posters? Perhaps some pie charts?
The anticipation is electric.
