A couple of exclusive stories yesterday combine to raise a very interesting question about Hillary Clinton’s email system.
An exclusive story at The Daily Beast reported that Defense Secretary Ash Carter is reviewing General David Petraeus’s misuse of classified information and is considering whether to retroactively demote General Petraeus, even though he officially retired almost four years ago. According to The Daily Beast:
“Carter is said to be concerned that because he has recommended other generals be reduced in rank for actions not becoming an officer, he’ll be seen as inconsistent if he doesn’t do the same for Petraeus. The decision is as much about timing and politics as it is Petraeus’s own transgressions.
‘This is about Ash Carter, not David Petraeus,’ the defense official said.”
Fox News had the other exclusive. They reported that, according to an unclassified letter from the Intelligence Community Inspector General, I. Charles McCullough III, a review of emails on Hillary Clinton’s personal email server identified several dozen additional classified emails.
