Jullian Assange, the fugitive founder of Wikileaks, claims his organization has released thousands of documents that prove the Hillary Clinton lied to the Federal Bureau of Investigations when she told them that she didn’t recognize classification markings in emails she received during her time as Secretary of State.
According to recently released FBI notes on their investigation into her use of a private email server, Clinton made the somewhat brazen claim during her three hour interview with investigators.
“When asked what the parenthetical ‘C’ meant before a paragraph within the captioned email, [Clinton] stated she did not know and could only speculate it was referencing paragraphs marked in alphabetical order,” read the FBI’s notes from their interview.
On Tuesday’s Hannity, Julian Assange revealed that Clinton’s claim of ignorance is contradicted by evidence that has already been released by WikiLeaks.
“Hillary Clinton says she can’t remember what a ‘C’ in brackets stands for, everyone in positions of government and at WikiLeaks knows it stands for ‘classified confidential’,” Assange told Sean.
“In fact, we have already released thousands of cables by Hillary Clinton…thousands of examples where she herself has used the ‘C’ in brackets and signed it off,” Assange said, holding up an example of such a cable and indicating Clinton’s signature. In addition, Assange said that Clinton received more than 22 thousand cables from others in which the ‘C’ in brackets appears.
WikiLeaks tweeted about the cables in July:

“So it’s absolutely incredible for Clinton to lie,” Assange added. “She is lying about not knowing what that is. But it’s a bit disturbing that [FBI Director] James Comey goes along with that game.”
