Hillary Clinton’s private email server risked our national security.
There are reports that foreign governments hacked her server which contained classified intelligence.
And one prominent Congressman just declared Hillary Clinton’s behavior was treasonous.
Mike McCaul (R-TX) is the Chairman of the Homeland Security Committee.
He was being interviewed on Fox and Friends where he was responding to bombshell reports there was a 99% certainty that foreign governments hacked her email server.
McCaul didn’t mince words.
The Daily Caller reports:
Texas Rep. Michael McCaul, who chairs the Homeland Security Committee, made the hefty charge in an interview on “Fox & Friends” in response to news that two sources with knowledge of the FBI’s investigation of Clinton’s server say that there is a 99 percent chance that Clinton’s server was breached.
“She exposed it to our enemies,” McCaul, a Republican, said of the classified information found on Clinton’s server.
“Now, our adversaries have this very sensitive information that not only jeopardizes her and national security at home, but the men and women serving overseas.”
“This is, in my opinion, quite frankly, treason,” he added, eliciting audible gasps from the “Fox & Friends” crew.
Clinton’s behavior has come under new fire since FBI Director James Comey announced he was reopening the criminal investigation into her server.
One of the big questions surrounding her server was did any foreign governments gain access to her emails?
We know from FBI Director James Comey’s July press event that there were 110 emails from 52 email chains that contained classified intelligence.
But at the time, he stated they were unable to determine if foreign governments had hacked her server.
It appears as if that is now a certainty.
The Daily Caller also comments on Fox’s reports:
Clinton has insisted that there is “no evidence” that her private server was hacked by foreign agencies. FBI Director James Comey said in July when he announced he would not recommend charges against Clinton that there was no direct evidence of a hack. But he added that it was still “possible” that a breach occurred and that the foreign hackers covered their tracks.
Fox News’ sources said that Comey’s language was not strong enough on the matter. The Obama appointee should have said that there was an “almost certainty” that Clinton’s homebrew server was infiltrated.
Allowing America’s international adversaries to steal our classified intelligence could be construed as “aiding and abetting the enemy.”
That’s why McCaul used such strong language.
The Daily Caller reported he continued to denounce Clinton’s conduct in harsh terms:
McCaul faulted Clinton not only for handling classified information on the server but for ignoring State Department security protocols related to the use of email while traveling overseas.
“The concern I’ve had all along is that she’s had seven special access programs on these devices. Those are the most classified, sensitive secrets in the federal government — many of them covert operations. She took those devices overseas against the State Department’s wishes,” he said.
