Toontime: Hillary's Secret Race

The nation's spy agencies scored a victory of sorts against Hillary Clinton's wall of denial about her fast and loose handling of classified material in her e-mail. A federal court found that some of the information leaked by her was properly classified. The last batch of her mails were released this week. At the center of the controversy is an e-mail concerning a North Korean missile launch which is now classified "secret" apparently because it reveals information about this nation's system of spy satellites which allow it to detect missile launches anywhere in the world. This leak prompted a referral of the case to the FBI for investigation along with three others. Only one email has now been classified top-secret.  None were classified at the time the e-mails were sent. Clinton supporters often point to a report by the State Department's IG saying former Secretaries of State Collin Powell and Condolizza Rice mishandled classified information in similar ways. Clinton's e-mail problems are not going away, however. Immunity has been granted by the Justice Department to her former tech staffer who set up the private, insecure server.   General Petraeus plead guilty to a similar offense of putting classified material into a non-classified setting, a misdemeanor.
