The issue of whether then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sent classified information via her private email account was settled long ago. Despite Clinton’s claims early and often that none of the emails sent using her home brew server contained classified information, the FBI investigation proved otherwise.

But it turns out that what FBI director James Comey characterized as Clinton’s “extremely careless [handling] of very sensitive, highly classified information” didn’t end when she left the State Department to pursue her presidential ambitions.

An exclusive report by the New York Post asserts:

Hillary Clinton continued sending classified information even after leaving the State Department….

On May 28, 2013, months after stepping down as secretary of state, Clinton sent an email to a group of diplomats and top aides about the “123 Deal” with the United Arab Emirates.

[…]

The email from Clinton was sent from the email account — hrod17@clintonemail.com — associated with her private email server.

The Post notes later in the article that “Clinton is believed to have sent 2,101 emails that contained at least some classified information.”

The story has now progressed so far from her original claim that her personal email account was purely a matter of convenience and that she had done nothing to compromise the security of the nation that one has to wonder when her conscience will finally force her to leave the race. The answer is that it won’t — and that’s because she has no conscience.
