State Dept. deems a couple dozen yoga-related Hillary emails too classified for even a redacted release

Remember this? Good times:

Also around that time, Hillary claimed that emails deleted from her homebrew server involved trivial discussions like yoga routines and family vacations.

She obviously glossed over a few things.

You’ve heard of the Friday night document dump, but this is a Friday document burial:

The Obama administration confirmed for the first time Friday that Hillary Clinton’s home server contained closely guarded government secrets, censoring 22 emails that contained material requiring one of the highest levels of classification. The revelation comes three days before Clinton competes in the Iowa presidential caucuses.

State Department officials also said the agency’s Diplomatic Security and Intelligence and Research bureaus are investigating if any of the information was classified at the time of transmission, going to the heart of Clinton’s defense of her email practices.

The department will release its next batch of emails from her time as secretary of state later Friday.

But The Associated Press learned seven email chains are being withheld in full for containing “top secret” information. The 37 pages include messages a key intelligence official recently said concerned “special access programs” —highly restricted, classified material that could point to confidential sources or clandestine programs like drone strikes.

The emails have been deemed “’too damaging’ to national security to release under any circumstances.” So only U.S. intelligence along with Russia and China know for sure what’s on those emails. All I know for sure is that Hillary’s former tech guy at the State Department is going to spend the weekend rehearsing pleading the 5th in case he has to do it yet again.

Team Hillary’s spokesman said those particular emails are a case of “over-classification run amok,” which of course cries out for the follow-up question, “how would you know?”

But as usual, Hillary intends to be the exception to her own “rule”:

Meanwhile, Joe Biden observes it all from afar… for now:

null

Update:

In addition to the above emails that are being withheld, there are these:

Gee, I wonder what might have been discussed in those emails? And by the way, Obama told 60 Minutes last year he was unaware she used a private email address and server. Something doesn’t add up, as usual.
