As secretary of state, Hillary Clinton repeatedly requested her maid to print out hypersensitive government e-mails and documents – which includes ones that contains classified information – from her residence in Washington, DC, e-mails and FBI memos present. But the housekeeper didn’t have the security clearance to handle such material.
The truth is, Marina Santos was called on so regularly to receive e-mails that she might hold the secrets to E-mailgate – if only the FBI and Congress would subpoena her and the equipment she utilized.
Clinton entrusted a great deal more than the care of her DC residence, referred to as Whitehaven, to Santos. She anticipated the Filipino immigrant to handle state secrets, further cracking open the Democratic presidential nominee to criticism that she played fast and loose with national security.
Clinton would first get highly sensitive e-mails from top aides at the State Department and then demand that they, in turn, forward the messages and any linked documents to Santos to print out for her at the residence.
Among other things, Clinton expected Santos print out drafts of her speeches, sensitive memos and “call sheets” – background data and talking points completely ready for the secretary of state in advance of a phone call with a foreign head of state.
“Pls ask Marina to print for me in am,” Clinton e-mailed top aide Huma Abedin concerning a redacted 2011 message marked hypersensitive but unclassified.
In a classified 2012 e-mail addressing the new president of Malawi, an additional Clinton aide, Monica Hanley, suggested Clinton, “We can ask Marina to print this.”
“Revisions to the Iran points” was the topic line of a classified April 2012 e-mail to Clinton from Hanley. In it, the text states, “Marina is trying to print for you.”
Both classified e-mails were noted “confidential,” the tier below “secret” or “top secret.”
Santos also had accessibility to a extremely secure room termed an SCIF (sensitive compartmented information facility) that diplomatic security agents setup at Whitehaven, based on FBI notes from an interview with Abedin.
From within the SCIF, Santos – who had zero clearance – “collected documents from the secure facsimile machine for Clinton,” the FBI information exposed.
Just how delicate were the papers Santos presumptively dealt with? The FBI believed Clinton periodically got the Presidential Daily Brief – a top-secret document well prepared by the CIA and other US intelligence agencies – by way of secure fax.
A 2012 “sensitive” but unclassified e-mail from Hanley to Clinton describes a fax the staff wanted Clinton “to see before your Netanyahu mtg. Marina will grab for you.”
Yet it seems Clinton was never inquired by the FBI in its yearlong investigation to turn over the iMac Santos utilized to acquire the e-mails, or the printer she utilized to print out the documents, or the printouts themselves.
