Hillary Clinton was hit with a devastating blow last week when the FBI reopened their investigation into her use of a personal email server during her time as Secretary of State. Now, things have gotten even worse for her, as a former CIA operative has come forward to explain just how big a deal Clinton’s use of a personal email really was.
In an op-ed for The Hill, former CIA operative Charles Faddis wrote that anyone else who did what Clinton has done would likely be in jail right now.
“I have worked in national security my entire life. Most of that has been in the intelligence community surrounded by classified information,” Faddis wrote, according to Conservative Tribune. “For 20 years, I worked undercover in the Central Intelligence Agency, recruiting sources, producing intelligence and running operations. I have a pretty concrete understanding of how classified information is handled and how government communications systems work.”
“Nobody uses a private email server for official business,” he added. “Period. Full stop.”
Faddis then described Clinton using a personal email server to conduct government business as “insane” and “mind-boggling,” adding that the fact some government officials are trying to allow her to get away with it is “nauseating.”
“Classified and unclassified information do not mix. They don’t travel in the same streams through the same pipes. They move in clearly well-defined channels so that never the twain shall meet,” he wrote. “Mixing them together is unheard of and a major criminal offense. If you end up with classified information in an unclassified channel, you have done something very wrong and very serious.”
Faddis also said that even accidentally removing one piece of classified material from the proper channels, even if nothing untoward results because of it, can result in a loss of security clearance, loss of a job, or even worse, a prison sentence. He then revealed just how serious this issue really is when he said Clinton most likely endangered Americans both at home and abroad.
“Every hostile intelligence agency on the planet targets senior American officials for collection. The secretary of state tops the list,” stated Faddis. “Almost anything the secretary of state had to say about her official duties, her schedule, her mood, her plans for the weekend, would be prized information to adversaries. It is very difficult, in fact, to think of much of anything that the secretary of state could be saying in email that we would want hostile forces to know.”
“While serving in one of the most senior positions in the United States Government, Hillary Clinton was at a minimum, grossly negligent in the handling of classified information and when confronted with this practice, acted immediately to destroy information and prevent a full, fair and complete investigation of any damage to national security,” he concluded. “Anyone else who did such things in the government would long ago have been tried, convicted and sent to jail.”
