How careless was Secretary of State Hillary Clinton with classified data?  Read this excerpt from Fox News\’s Ed Henry – which includes a telling quote from then-Undersecretary Wendy Sherman – and see for yourself:

A 2013 video, obtainedexclusively by Fox News, raises fresh questions about how Hillary Clintonhandled sensitive information at the State Department.

In the video, veteran diplomat Wendy Sherman revealsthat in the interest of speed, Clinton and her aides would share informationthat “would never be on an unclassified system” normally. Thequestions surround a 2013 speech in which Sherman compared the technologydifferences between serving at the State Department in the administrations ofPresident Bill Clinton and President Obama.

“Now we have BlackBerrys, and it has changed theway diplomacy is done,” Sherman, who was undersecretary of state at thetime, said in the 2013 on-camera remarks. “Things appear on yourBlackBerrys that would never be on an unclassified system. But you\’re outtraveling, you\’re trying to negotiate something. You want to communicate withpeople, it\’s the fastest way to do it.”

Clinton\’s use of a personal server for her officialemails during her time as secretary of state is now being reviewed by the FBI. 

Let me make this perfectly clear:  short of life-and-death situations, there is no reason – NO REASON – for a Secretary Of State to send and receive classified information using an unprotected server.  And this is about as unprotected as it gets.

Tell me:  which part of what Ms. Clinton talked about last night is this?  The part where she says the charges against her are outlandish?  Where she says there is nothing to them?  

Multiple sources are indicating that the FBI is on the verge of indicting Hillary Clinton for the negligence with which she handled classified information.  All that stands between her and the indictment is President Obama\’s latest acolyte of an Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, stopping it from happening – which, the facts in this case notwithstanding, is an excellent bet.

Maybe uncovering Ms. Sherman\’s admission about Hillary Clinton\’s indifference to the handling of classified information will make it a little bit harder for Attorney General Lynch to quash an indictment.  And maybe it will also force a few more potential Clinton voters to realize just who they would be putting in charge of our nation\’s safety and security.

We\’ll see….
