Hillary Clinton still has a security clearance.
Paul Sperry reports in the NY Post that Hillary Clinton routinely asked her maid Marina Santos to print out sensitive government e-mails and documents—including ones containing classified information—from her house in Washington, DC, e-mails and FBI memos show, but the housekeeper lacked a security clearance to handle such material.
Santos also had access to a highly secure room called an SCIF (sensitive compartmented information facility) that diplomatic security agents set up at Whitehaven [Clintion’s Washington residence], according to FBI notes from an interview with Abedin.
From within the SCIF, Santos — who had no clearance — “collected documents from the secure facsimile machine for Clinton,” the FBI notes revealed.

If you have to ask, you haven’t been paying attention.
UPDATE—During my commute this morning, I saw nine Trump yard signs, two Johnson signs, and one for Hillary.
Zero Hedge reports that John Podesta’s best friend in the Justice Department will oversee the further investigation of Huma Abedin’s emails.
Kadzik… Kadzik… where have we heard that name?
Oh yes. Recall our post from last week, “Clinton Campaign Chair Had Dinner With Top DOJ Official One Day After Hillary’s Benghazi Hearing” in which we reported that John Podesta had dinner with one of the highest ranked DOJ officials the very day after Hillary Clinton’s Benghazi testimony?
It was Peter Kadzik.

Ms. Abedin was no place to be seen among the Clinton entourage today. Perhaps she just needed a day off. Or perhaps …
The Hillary Email Story now includes Anthony Weiner.
I’m not going there.
Paul Sperry reports at the NY Post that one of the servers used for Hillary’s private email system was not destroyed but was “repurposed” as a work station. However, FBI agents were not permitted to seize it. It turns out that some of the “lost” emails may be recoverable.
Also, Andrew McCarthy has a piece up at NRO dealing with an email release through Wikileaks that shows that President Obama was lying when he said that he was unaware of Hillary’s private email until he heard about it through news reports. It seems that he was sending her emails using the private address.
The Hill reports that the Clinton campaign is preparing to spin the email hacks by comparing them to the Watergate break in.
Well, what’s a few deleted emails compared to 18-1/2 minutes of erased tape?
Back in 2008, it was fashionable in some quarters of the Blogosphere to predict that Obama’s administration would be like Carter’s second term. There were those of us who suggested that might be a best case scenario.
I don’t want to have to tell you I told you so, but as Scott Johnson has noted over at PowerLine there’s a stench reminiscent of Watergate in the political air. Of course, things have evolved. An 18-minute dropout on tape has become 30,000 or so emails, but we’re still facing the same sort of corrupt beasts.
