Clinton Talks Cybersecurity Challenges… While 7 MORE emails classified ‘TOP SECRET’…

Posted 02/03/2016 3:14 pm by




At the end of a get out the vote campaign event in New Hampshire on Wednesday, Hillary Clinton was asked about her plans for protecting cyber security.


“It is one of the most important challenges the next president is going to face,” Clinton said.


Clinton said that the technology offenses conducted by hostile states have become more advanced. She named Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea as countries that are just going to accelerate their attacks on the cyber infrastructure of the United States.


“We first have to figure how to create what would be an understanding with these nations that we will not tolerate their cyber theft and their cyber evasiveness, and we certainly would never ever sit still for a cyber attack,” Clinton said.


Clinton also spoke of another level of cyber attackers that is made up of terrorist networks and hacker networks who have nothing to lose when they release a cyber attack. Clinton added that the US needs to work on both levels to prevent the attacks from happening and giving them the information that they want.


Clinton is known for having a private server during her time as secretary of state. In October, the AP reported that the private server made it more vulnerable to hackers.


Clinton’s private server is currently in the possession of the F.B.I. and she is under investigation for sending and receiving classified information.


In the latest batch of emails released by the State Department, 22 of the emails were designated Top Secret. Clinton denies that when the emails were generated that they contained top secret information and has demanded the State Department release them to the public.


The AP reported that during Clinton’s time at the State Department that it was one of the worst agencies in the federal government at protecting its computer networks. The deteriorating situation continued well into when John Kerry took over.


“After setting up an unsecure email server in her basement that exposed highly classified information and triggered an FBI investigation, it goes without saying Hillary Clinton has flunked the cyber security test with flying colors,” RNC spokesman Michael Short said in a statement to the Free Beacon.





Seven additional Clinton emails to be marked ‘top secret’

A Republican member of the House Intelligence Committee said Wednesday that the State Department has classified seven more of Hillary Clinton’s private emails as “top secret.”


“There are more than 22, and it’s not just one or two more,” Rep. Chris Stewart told the Washington Examiner, referring to the 22 emails deemed top secret by the State Department last week. “It’s a more meaningful number than that.”


Stewart said the State Department has classified seven additional emails as “top secret.” The agency will now withhold 29 emails from the public due to their sensitive content.


“These were classified at the top secret level, and in some cases, above that,” he said.


Stewart said his years of experience handling highly classified material allowed him to recognize immediately the sensitive nature of Clinton’s emails. The Utah Republican said he had never seen anything more sensitive than the information contained within the emails.


“They do reveal classified methods, they do reveal classified sources, and they do reveal human assets,” he said during an appearance on Fox’s “America’s Newsroom” earlier in the day.


The State Department’s decision on Friday to withhold 22 emails entirely, rather than redact only the sensitive portions, marked a departure from the agency’s approach to the more than 1,300 emails that have been classified over the past eight months.


Clinton has attempted to downplay the move as a result of bureaucratic infighting. But the discovery of the highly classified messages has fueled speculation that the former secretary of state may be facing more serious legal trouble than previously thought.


John Kirby, spokesman for the State Department, declined to address questions about the additional top secret emails Wednesday.
