Wolf Blitzer: Comey’s Statement ‘A Severe, Severe, Slap At the Way Hillary Clinton Was Running That Server’

CNN host Wolf Blitzer stated that FBI Directory James Comey’s statement that classified information on presumptive Democratic presidential nominee former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s server “was potentially available for foreign hostile powers to — or for anyone for that matter to go into those private servers and compromise that kind of information, that is a severe, severe slap at the way Hillary Clinton was running that server while she was secretary of state” on Tuesday’s “At This Hour.”

Blitzer said, “[W]hen he [FBI Director James Comey] says that there was classified information on that server, even if it had not been formally marked classified, anyone in a position of government should have known it was classified, and it wasn’t just low level confidential information which is classified. That’s the lowest level of classification. But then there’s secret, then there’s top secret and then there’s a category above top secret. And there were some emails that were there that were at that top level, above top secret. When he says that that information was there, it was potentially available for foreign hostile powers to — or for anyone for that matter to go into those private servers and compromise that kind of information, that is a severe, severe slap at the way Hillary Clinton was running that server while she was secretary of state for four years, and her aides were obviously very well aware that all this information was on this private server. So, when she says that no information was marked classified when it was sent or received, she may be precise in those words. But he says anyone reading that information should have known it was secret, top secret, or even a secure compartmented information, which is even more sensitive.”

Fellow anchor John Berman added, “And in fact, we now know that more than 100 were marked classified at the time, according to the FBI director, eight marked top secret. Even those that weren’t, Wolf, as you point out correctly, they should have known that they were classified, the FBI director said.”
