Wendy Sherman, the lead negotiator on President Obama’s Iran nuclear deal, told Hillary Clinton that she could not work on something right away because she was at the movie Zero Dark Thirty, which was “sort of like work.”
The latest partial State Department email dump of Clinton’s private emails shows an embarrassing moment on Sherman’s part.
Clinton emailed Sherman on January 19, 2013 regarding an issue involving “Algeria/Mali,” saying, “Let’s aim for tomorrow afternoon – I’ll email after I get home from inauguration to set time.”
Sherman replied that she was at the movies.
“At Zero dark Thirty now (sort of like work) but could after 9 tonight or any time tomorrow. Hope prep went well,” Sherman wrote.
Hillary Clinton personally appointed Wendy Sherman to her position as Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs at the State Department in 2011. In this very role, Sherman served as lead negotiator on the Obama administration’s disastrous Iran nuclear deal in 2015, which dropped sanctions on Iran while allowing the Islamic country to continue its nuclear program.
Sherman was captured in a video publicized earlier this week revealing that Hillary Clinton used her personal Blackberry to exchange classified information while Secretary of State.
“Now we have Blackberries, and it has changed the way diplomacy is done,” Sherman said in the video. She continued:
Things appear on your Blackberries that would never be on an unclassified system, but you’re out traveling, you’re trying to negotiate something. And so they sat there, as they were having the meeting, with their Blackberries, transferring language back and forth between them and between their aides to multitask in quite a new fashion, to have the meeting and at the same time be working on the quartet statement.
Sherman was announced as a new hire at Bill Clinton Secretary of State Madeleine Albright’s global advisory firm just one day after the shocking video came out.
As Breitbart News reported, Clinton’s Blackberry suffered a “vulnerability” during her first State Department visit to Asia, including to hacker-happy China, in 2009.
Clinton is under FBI investigation for potentially violating the Espionage Act of 1913 by allowing national defense materials to be lost, stolen, or abstracted through “gross negligence.”
