Another example of Hillary Clinton being reckless and irresponsible with top secret information has been exposed.
Fox News reported on Sunday that The NY Post feature story reveals that the Democratic candidate instructed her maid to print classified documents. Obviously, her maid did not have the appropriate security clearance to access these documents.
Marina Santos, the Clintons’ maid who Bill has previously said that his wife wouldn’t be where she is today without her, was trusted often with emails containing state secrets.
“In fact, Marina Santos was called on so frequently to receive e-mails that she may hold the secrets to E-mailgate — if only the FBI and Congress would subpoena her and the equipment she used,” writes The NY Post. “Clinton entrusted far more than the care of her DC residence, known as Whitehaven, to Santos. She expected the Filipino immigrant to handle state secrets, further opening the Democratic presidential nominee to criticism that she played fast and loose with national security.”
Apparently, Clinton’s top aides were aware of her reckless behavior with Santos. Clinton would direct her team to forward emails with attached documents to Santos so she could print them at her home.
Santos was also asked to print out speech scripts, confidential memos, and” call sheets” or notes prepared for the former secretary of state in advance of a meeting or call. All of these documents contained information Santos should not have been privy to.
“Pls ask Marina to print for me in am,” Clinton wrote to top aide Huma Abedin in a redacted 2011 email marked as sensitive.
Then a 2012 classified email, one of Clinton’s aides Monica Hanley wrote “We can ask Marina to print this.” In another email from that year, with the subject “Revisions to the Iran points,” Hanley says “Marina is trying to print for you.”
Both of these emails were mark was “confidential.”
Santos had access to the SCIF (sensitive compartmented information facility at the Whitehaven, according to FBI notes from the bureau’s interview with Abedin. Santos would often visit this secure room and would collect documents for Clinton.
“It also appears the FBI did not formally interview Santos as a key witness in its investigation,” writes The NY Post
“This is a major oversight: Santos may know the whereabouts of a missing Apple MacBook laptop and USB flash drive that contain all of Clinton’s e-mails archived over her four years in office.”
Hanley has said that these e-mail achieves were “lost.”
“Santos could turn out to be the Betty Currie of the Clinton e-mail scandal. Currie was the secretary for President Clinton. She also came recommended by Jordan, and became famous as a central witness in the Monica Lewinsky scandal for her handling of gifts given to Clinton’s mistress,” writes The NY Post. “Investigators had sought the gifts, allegedly hidden under Currie’s bed on orders from Clinton, as evidence.”
Will Santos betray Clinton to expose her? So far, she has refused to speak with reporters.
Author’s note: There are just too many examples like this where Hillary Clinton was careless with top secret information. How can she be trusted to not be reckless as the president? As the Fox News reporters said, she knew she was going to run for president and she still made major mistakes like this that threaten the country’s safety.
Editor’s note: This gets more and more frightening how careless Hillary has been with our nation’s trust.
