Security vet: ‘Smoking gun’ email should put Hillary in prison

Clearly marked classified info sent through nonsecure system

The handling of an email to Hillary Clinton from longtime adviser Sidney Blumenthal discovered in a new release of documents is a “smoking gun” violation of national security laws requiring a prison sentence, charges a former military intelligence officer.

Clinton forwarded the Aug. 8, 2009, email – clearly marked “Classified” – to a personal, nonsecure email address registered to aide Huma Abedin, Abedin then forwarded the message to another personal, nonsecure account,

The exchange from Blumenthal to Clinton concerned the “disastrous nature” of an Obama trip to Germany, charging the U.S. was “totally out of the loop in Berlin – no ambassador,” resulting in the expectation that “Germans and Russians will now cut their own separate deals on energy, regional security, etc.”
