Well, that’s that.
Acting FBI Assistant Director Jason Herring on Tuesday released to the House Oversight Committee a letter that confirmed the emails media and bloggers (and foaming-at-the-mouth commenters on blogs like this one) have been going batshit over did not originate with Clinton.
Let’s repeat: Clinton did not send classified emails from her home email server.
To be even clearer:
- Clinton did not send emails with information marked classified in them. She received them.
- There was no intent on her part — or her staff’s — to share classified information with people not entitled to see it.
We might also note that Herring explained that the term “extremely careless,” was simply “intended to be a common sense way of describing the actions of Secretary Clinton and her colleagues.” Herring also said “the facts did not support a recommendation to prosecute her or others within the scope of the investigation for gross negligence.”
So…are we done? Or will we still be hearing about the “fact” Hillary emailed scads of classified documents (right after she had Charles Ruff knocked off) for the next twenty-five years?
