Too many links to explore each thoroughly, but today (and recent days) resulted in a tsunami of stories about the dirty Hillary and Democrat machines. In a little while I will have a giant post about the new O’Keefe video, but let’s just look at some quick other highlights, shall we?
An email stored on Hillary Clinton’s private email server contained information that was highly classified at the time it was sent, the Federal Bureau of Investigation revealed on Monday.
According to FBI interview notes in its Clinton investigation released on Monday, “one of these e-mails was TOP SECRET/SCI at the time of transmission.”
The finding contradicts months of claims by Clinton, her campaign, and her political allies that she did not send or receive information that was classified at the time.
The TS/SCI designation is reserved for extremely sensitive national security information that can only be handled in secure settings such as Sensitive Compartmented Information Facilities (SCIFs).
Bad! Then there’s this: according to more newly released documents, Patrick Kennedy, Undersecretary of State, contacted an FBI agent saying that he wanted the agent’s help in reclassifying classified emails as unclassified — and in return, the State Department “would reciprocate by allowing the FBI to place more agents in countries where they are presently forbidden.”

A quid pro quo was denied over the weekend, but what had not been denied was that one had been offered. Now we know one was.
Bad! Then there’s this: the Center for Public Integrity reports: Journalists shower Hillary Clinton with campaign cash:
In all, people identified in federal campaign finance filings as journalists, reporters, news editors or television news anchors — as well as other donors known to be working in journalism — have combined to give more than $396,000 to the presidential campaigns of Clinton and Trump, according to a Center for Public Integrity analysis.
Nearly all of that money — more than 96 percent — has benefited Clinton: About 430 people who work in journalism have, through August, combined to give about $382,000 to the Democratic nominee, the Center for Public Integrity’s analysis indicates.
About 50 identifiable journalists have combined to give about $14,000 to Trump.
Hardly shocking — to anyone, that is, besides the clueless Chris Cilizza at The Fix:
Let me say for the billionth time: Reporters don't root for a side. Period. https://t.co/dhH8eherOR

That was yesterday. Today?
Well this is super depressing. NO idea why any journalist would donate $ to politicians https://t.co/xyGheUdkIA

I have a long post coming about James O’Keefe’s latest video in about half an hour. (It’s already up at RedState if you can’t wait.)
