I suppose this is the only next level to which this scandal could go, and now we've arrived at it:
The intelligence community has now deemed some of Hillary Clinton’s emails “too damaging” to national security to release under any circumstances, according to a U.S. government official close to the ongoing review. A second source, who was not authorized to speak on the record, backed up the finding.
The decision to withhold the documents in full, and not provide even a partial release with redactions, further undercuts claims by the State [Commissariat] and the [Rodham] campaign that none of the intelligence in the emails was classified when it hit [Mrs.] Clinton’s personal server.
Fox News is told the emails include intelligence from “special access programs,” or SAP, which is considered beyond “Top Secret.” A January 14th letter, first reported by Fox News, from intelligence community Inspector General Charles McCullough III notified senior intelligence and foreign relations committee leaders that “several dozen emails containing classified information” were determined to be “at the CONFIDENTIAL, SECRET, AND TOP SECRET/SAP levels.” [emphasis added]
The idea here is that if these additional emails are released, now matter how thoroughly redacted, the Russians, the ChiComms, the Iranians, the North Koreans, ISIS, al Qaeda, and every other U.S. enemy - all of whom, of course, have the entire clintonemails.com archive - might be able to find these particular messages in that archive using what wasn't redacted on the released copies. This, of course, assumes that three or more years wasn't long enough for Moscow, Beijing, Tehran, Pyongyang, Raqqa, et al to have gone through the entire stockpile already, at least some part of this Regime is being prudent and cautious, even if it is years too late.
This appears to have finally motivated Foggy Bottom to start taking Emailgate seriously, and, perhaps and perchance, to withdraw the public relations solar sail they've been using to cover the Ugly Dutchess's enormous ass:
The Obama administration is confirming for the first time that Hillary Clinton’s unsecured home server contained some closely guarded secrets, including material requiring one of the highest levels of classification. …
Spokesman John Kirby tells the AP that no judgment on past classification was made. But the [commissariat] is looking into that, too.
Emphasis on "appears" above. Does this mean the White House is preparing to shiv Mrs. Clinton in search of bone and muscle tissue beneath all that blubber and loose skin, or is this part of a grand master plan to pretend to prosecute her (thus taking the heat off of the Regime) only to pull back next fall, "PSYCH!"-like, drop all the charges, and stick a warp nacelle, completely with warp reactor (because that's what it would take) in her pantsuit to propel her to November victory?
I still lean toward the latter. But it will make for some diverting drama in the meantime.
