Hillary directed staffers to “remove classified header of a classified document”
A Link to Michael Hastings’ Death?
MHB Commenter “Sue”
In an interview with ITV’s Robert Peston, the Wikileaks founder (Julian Assange) said, “We published an email where Hillary Clinton is instructing her staff to remove the classified header of a classified document and send it by non-classified fax.” That would be a felony for anyone else.

These Hillary e-mails are amazing, and I need to start taking notes. Joe Wilson, the United States Ambassador to Gabon sent her a message in which he apologizes for sending it directly to her rather than going through Sidney Blumenthal: ” I am taking the liberty of sending this directly to you rather than through Sid because it is of immediate import and is outside Sid’s area of expertise.”
Her friend, Sid sent her the full text of the Rolling Stone piece on General McChrystal by Michael Hastings, which had them very concerned. Hastings is of course dead as a result of a single-vehicle accident involving a tree. Blumenthal, who at minimum represents a conflict of interest due to his business dealings in the Middle East, suggests in other e-mails that she broadcast out using her influencers and media friendlies. (I thought they all were!)
One journalist, who had written a piece on the State Department’s handling of Benghazi, sounded terrified. His article was critical of her Benghazi decision. He sent her a fawning e-mail, pledging undying support, with no daylight between their views. Perhaps he was afraid of trees.
