Last week, the FBI announced it was reopening their investigation of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s private email server. Shockingly, many of her supporters are still seeking to downplay the issue.
Former CIA operative Charles Faddis just authored an op-ed for The Hill in hopes that he can help Americans see the light. According to Faddis, Clinton’s email scandal is a big deal and one for which she should be held accountable.
“I have worked in national security my entire life. Most of that has been in the intelligence community surrounded by classified information,” Faddis wrote. “For 20 years, I worked undercover in the Central Intelligence Agency, recruiting sources, producing intelligence and running operations. I have a pretty concrete understanding of how classified information is handled and how government communications systems work.”
“Nobody uses a private email server for official business,” Faddis added. “Period. Full stop.”
He then went on to call Clinton’s decision to use a personal server to conduct official government business both “insane” and “mind-boggling.”
“Classified and unclassified information do not mix,” he wrote. “They don’t travel in the same streams through the same pipes. They move in clearly well-defined channels so that never the twain shall meet. Mixing them together is unheard of and major criminal offense. If you end up with classified information in an unclassified channel, you have done something very wrong and very serious.”
Faddis then outlined just how dangerous Clinton’s actions were to Americans both at home and abroad.
“Every hostile intelligence agency on the planet targets senior American officials for collection,” he argued. “The secretary of state tops the list. Almost anything the secretary of state had to say about her official duties, her schedule, her mood, her plans for the weekend, would be prized information to adversaries.”

“It is very difficult, in fact, to think of much of anything that the secretary of state could be saying in an email that we would want hostile forces to know,” he added.
Faddis concluded with a very succinct summary of Clinton’s actions, and why she should be held accountable for them.
“While serving in one of the most senior positions in the United States Government, Hillary Clinton was at a minimum, grossly negligent in the handling of classified information and when confronted with this practice, acted immediately to destroy information and prevent a full, fair and complete investigation of any damage to national security,” he concluded.”Anyone else who did such things in the government would long ago have been tried, convicted and sent to jail.”
What do you think? Should Hillary be disqualified from being President of the United States? She is a criminal, through and through.
