Herridge: Hillary 'Couldn't Recall' Training About Handling Classified Info
Fox News chief intelligence correspondent Catherine Herridge reported the latest details after reviewing several dozen pages of documents released by the FBI from its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state.
Herridge noted that pages 34 through 37 of the documents are totally redacted. The "302" document is a summary of the interview from the agents, not a transcript.
Following the interview with Clinton, FBI Director James Comey announced that he would not recommend charges be pursued.
The issue of intent, specifically why Clinton needed the private server in the first place, was apparently not pressed by the agents who interviewed Clinton, Herridge noted.
Herridge said that on critical points concerning the handling of classified information, Clinton said she could not remember details, citing a concussion she suffered.
For instance, Clinton could not recall when she received her security clearance or whether it was carried over from her time in the Senate. She also could not recall any briefing or training by the State Department "related to the retention of federal records or the handling of classified information."
Clinton said she was briefed on Special Access Programs - the top-level classification of U.S. intelligence - but could not recall the specific training or briefings on how to handle that information.
"On these critical questions, she has - in almost every case - sort of a lapse in memory on the details," Herridge reported.
Furthermore, Clinton claimed she never thought she was receiving classified information in her email because she was relying on her aides not to send sensitive materials.
