[Ed. – This is the very definition of “twisting in the wind.” Go, Hillary, go! Yank that noose.]
Don’t look now but the key lesson from her upcoming (re-)education program, that the feds treat every little thing as classified and therefore mishandling classified info is no big deal (even items marked “top secret”?), is already being pushed by friendly media. Jeffrey Toobin wrote a piece making that argument a few days ago. So did Matt Miller. Soon Hillary will write one of her own:
To get in front of these headlines, the Clinton campaign is plotting a three-pronged pushback strategy. The first, described by Communications Director Jennifer Palmieri in an interview with The Huffington Post, is an end-of-summer effort to educate the public on the classification process for national security material. The second, coming when Congress returns from recess, is to aggressively pivot to policy announcements, from economic and women’s issues to President Barack Obama’s Iran deal, which will receive a vote in September. The last is to “go on offense” on Clinton’s record as Secretary of State, which the campaign sees as the ultimate target of her Republican critics…
Hillary herself tweeted out the link to Miller’s piece earlier today. The logic of her “education” strategy, I assume, is that by assuming the authority role of the insider who explains an arcane process to the public, Hillary will convince people who don’t know what to think about all of this that she must have known what she was doing all along.
