Apparently, Hillary Clinton’s troubles with technology extend even further than her famous tussle with the fax machine, revealed in the first set of FOIA’ed emails the State Department released several months ago. She also has a lot of difficulty with printers.
According to a batch of email released to Judicial Watch, Hillary Clinton not only received classified information on her Chappaqua bathroom server, she often asked for said emails to be printed out so that she could review them without all of the distractions attendant to technology. Or, of course, she’s just old and needed things in their paper versions. Bifocals and pixels don’t mix, you see.
Hillary Clinton forwarded two emails that included “foreign government” information to a top State Department aide and asked for the messages to be printed out, according to correspondence obtained by the watchdog group Judicial Watch.
The emails were written to Clinton and her adviser Jake Sullivan by former Prime Minister British Tony Blair, who was working as a consultant at the time. The State Department redacted the full content of the messages because they contained classified “foreign government information,” a category of information that experts say should be “presumed classified” as soon as it is received by U.S. government officials.
The messages also contained classified information on “foreign relations or foreign activities of the United States,” according to the redaction designation.
Needless to say, you’re not actually supposed to print out classified emails. But legality and illegality are of little concern to a Clinton, and so she forwarded the emails to Huma Abedin, her most trusted advisor and right-hand woman in her showdowns with office furniture, and the rest is history.
