Where to even begin on the latest from our gal Hillary and the I.G. report on her Email escapade. This one caught my eye because I enjoyed watching the fill in guy over at State, Mark Toner, spin in the wind. Actually the whole State Department presser was worthy of a watch, but I’ll take this for a start.
State Department Can’t Definitively Say Clinton Email Server Was Never Successfully Hacked
State Department spokesman Mark Toner could not definitively say that Hillary Clinton’s private email server had not been hacked during a briefing Wednesday.
The State Department’s inspector general confirmed Wednesday in a scathing report that Clinton’s use of the private server for official business violated federal regulations meant to ensure the safety of classified information. The report contradicted claims made by Clinton and her campaign that her conduct was fully above board.
Questions about the server’s security have circulated since last year when its existence was revealed. A Romanian hacker known as “Guccifer,” who pled guilty to hacking-related charges Wednesday, claims he successfully breached Clinton’s server.
“There were hack attempts on her server,” a reporter said. “How did that not bring a reassessment that maybe this wasn’t the best strategy?”
Toner said there were unsuccessful attempts to hack the server, but the reporter retorted that the inspector general report did not characterize the attempts as successful or unsuccessful.
“I apologize, actually,” Toner said. “I misspoke.”
