The Clinton campaign is scrambling.
The Washington Times – Hillary Clinton is vehemently disputing new charges that she sent top-secret information from a nonsecure email account while at the State Department, but analysts say the scandal has already damaged her so deeply that her presidential ambitions are at risk.
Mrs. Clinton’s messages contained some information classified above “top secret,” the intelligence community’s inspector general said in a letter to Congress this week. Fox News reported Thursday that the information is so sensitive that even senators, who already have clearance, must go through additional hoops if they want to see some of what she was sending.
The Clinton campaign responded by accusing the inspector general, I. Charles McCullough, appointed by President Obama, of politically motivated leaks to sabotage her campaign.
Meanwhile, Bernie Sanders’ ‘likability’ factor has garnered him a continual rise in his poll numbers. Clinton has been working to paint a picture of him as likable – yes – but, not able to deliver on his promises.
“In theory there’s alot to like about some of his ideas, but in theory isn’t enough. A president has to deliver in reality,” said Mrs. Clinton of her opponent in a recent speech.
