Hillary Clinton enthusiastically dove into the ongoing controversy surrounding Donald Trump’s handling of classified documents, pushing back against comparisons with her emails scandal.
“I can’t believe we’re still talking about this, but my emails…” Clinton wrote in a Twitter thread.
“[Former FBI Directory James] Comey admitted he was wrong after he claimed I had classified emails. Trump’s own State Department, under two different Secretaries, found I had no classified emails. That’s right: ZERO,” she wrote.
“By contrast,” she continued, “Trump has hundreds of documents clearly marked classified, and the investigation just started. As Trump’s problems continue to mount, the right is trying to make this about me again.”
Despite her claims, a 2018 government report stated that there were 193 emails that were classified when they were either drafted or sent from her private, unprotected server.
Intelligence Community Inspector General I. Charles McCullough III said that there were “several dozen” additional emails that were classified, including some that were classified “special access program” – one of the highest levels of classification.
Then-FBI Director Comey reviewed the evidence and decided not to prosecute Clinton over the scandal. But her acting like she did nothing wrong is quite brazen.

The point would seem to be that while Comey came out publicly in a recorded press conference about the classified (and even TOP SECRET) Clinton e-mails (and a transcript is even on FBI web site), the question is what evidence is there that “Comey admitted he was wrong”? I could not find any such thing.
Interesting take on a very serious story. Trump is caught with the actual documents that he is not allowed to have. Your website’s chooses to focus on Hillary Clinton, who was never accused of stealing any documents. Is your concern ethics or protecting the man who tried to overturn the last election? You can’t spin stories away from the reality that Trump is a criminal, but your claim to value ethics and morality is questionable when you choose to defend the indefensible.
Relative to Trump she did not have any and disclose classified information.
Interesting take on a very serious story.
President Trump could have declassified anything he wanted and was also earlier advised by that same organization that raided his house to store said documents in a safe – into which they then broke when they raided his house.
I won’t even bother mentioning anything about that woman.
He could have but the fact is he did not declassify and once he declassifies it is for everyone.
The wicked witch opened her trap. She erased 33 thousand classified emails. She is a bitter woman. Her gihenem is being married to Bill Clinton. His gihenem is being married to her.
There are some stark differences. Hillary admitted that usage of a private server was the wrong decision and took complete responsibility. She didn’t deny that she used the private server.
trump stole documents he wasn’t allowed to have. When confronted, only part of them were returned. When pressed for the rest, it took months including a subpoena to get additional files. A letter was presented to the Justice Department that stated there was no more confidential material at the palatial country club. That was a lie. They have consistently lied and obstructed and have never taken responsibility.
The Washington Post and NY Times say they have information that Trump had documents he shouldn’t have. Ha Ha.
I will wait for a more impartial source, How about a judge???
He is playing you all and he who laughs last…..
markjw – you are right on !
Hilary will never stop lying
No classified Emails were found on Clinton’s server. Of the several thousand emails from Hillary Clinton’s private server that were released to the public, more than 180 have been redacted, meaning they contain information deemed classified. But State Department officials decided only after the fact that this information should be classified.
This sort of classification upgrade occasionally happens when new information comes into play that affects the sensitivity of the information. Because the information was classified after the emails were sent, no one mishandled this information at the time by sending it over Clinton’s private server.
Despite some claims that Trump declassified all the documents at Mar a Largo, there has been no evidence found to support the claims and none of the court filings from Trump’s lawyers make that claim. Some of the highly sensitive documents could never under any circumstance be declassified because that would compromise intelligence agents and methods of intelligence gathering.
It’s possible that when rushing to pack after realizing that he was actually leaving the White House cleaning staff just put everything they found in those 30 plus boxes seized at Mar a Lago
Trump said Hillary should be locked up. By his logic they should share a cell.
30,000 wiped clean!
“Oh, like with a rag?”
How about 4 lost lives in Bengazi who, to this wicked witch, we’re useless. Mind you they we’re US ambassadors and service officers. But useless garbage to the hill-billys
My goodness… MAGA Republicans like to point out how Trump lives in Democrats headspace… Yet, 6 years after Hillary lost the election MAGA Republicans still are busy with Hillary.
