Hillary obfuscates, lies when asked about non-disclosure agreement that says classified info doesn’t need to be marked

Hillary Clinton appeared on This Week with George Stephanopoulos yesterday and finally was asked the key question by her husband’s former political operative and Clinton charities donor.  Chuck Ross reports at The Daily Caller:

“You know, you’ve said many times that the emails were not marked classified,” said ABC News “This Week” host George Stephanopoulos.

“But the non-disclosure agreement you signed as secretary of state said that that really is not that relevant,” he continued.

He was referring to the “Classified Information Nondisclosure Agreement” — or Standard Form 312 — that Clinton signed on Jan. 22, 2009, a day after taking over as secretary of state.

“It says classified information is marked or unmarked classified and that all of your training to treat all of that sensitively and should know the difference,” said Stephanopoulos, describing the document.

Clinton answered in her characteristic manner: with confidence and authority as she dodged the question and misrepresented relevant facts:

 

“I take classified information very seriously,” Clinton said. “You know, you can’t get information off the classified system in the State Department to put onto an unclassified system, no matter what that system is.”

“We were very specific about that and you — when you receive information, of course, there has to be some markings, some indication that someone down the chain had thought that this was classified and that was not the case.”

That last statement is entirely false, and directly contradicts the question. But it went unchallenged, and mush heads who adore her will think that she answered it clearly.
