Classified Hillary Emails Calling In Top Secret Drone Strikes Focus Of FBI Probe
The FBI probe into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email sever is focusing on classified emails during which top-secret drone strikes were being planned.
Hillary Clinton has been caught in yet another lie involving her use of a private email sever from which she has repeatedly claimed she never received or sent classified information from.
Of course the FBI is investigating her because doing so is a federal offense for which she will be sent to jail.
The latest update from the Wall Street Journal reveals the FBI has focused their investigation on communications regarding the planning of drone strikes.
Of course the planning of an assassination would be classified but this one is a double whammy because while everyone in the world knows that the United States has killed over 5000 people in drone strikes since the start of the Afghanistan world the program itself is classified top secret by the United States.
In fact, any communications about the program is strictly classified.

Emails In Clinton Probe Dealt With Planned CIA Drone Strikes
Wall Street Journal
At the center of a criminal probe involving Hillary Clinton’s handling of classified information is a series of emails between American diplomats in Islamabad and their superiors in Washington about whether to oppose specific drone strikes in Pakistan.
The 2011 and 2012 emails were sent via the “low side’’—government slang for a computer system for unclassified matters—as part of a secret arrangement that gave the State Department more of a voice in whether a Central Intelligence Agency drone strike went ahead, according to congressional and law-enforcement officials briefed on the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe.
Some of the emails were then forwarded by Mrs. Clinton’s aides to her personal email account, which routed them to a server she kept at her home in suburban New York when she was secretary of state.
The vaguely worded messages didn’t mention the “CIA,” “drones” or details about the militant targets, officials said. The still-secret emails are a key part of the FBI investigation that has long dogged Mrs. Clinton’s campaign, these officials said. They were written within the often-narrow time frame in which State Department officials had to decide whether or not to object to drone strikes before the CIA pulled the trigger, the officials said.
Law-enforcement and intelligence officials said State Department deliberations about the covert CIA drone program should have been conducted over a more secure government computer system designed to handle classified information.
One such exchange came just before Christmas in 2011, when the U.S. ambassador sent a short, cryptic note to his boss indicating a drone strike was planned. That sparked a back-and-forth among Mrs. Clinton’s senior advisers over the next few days, in which it was clear they were having the discussions in part because people were away from their offices for the holiday and didn’t have access to a classified computer, officials said.
The CIA drone campaign, though widely reported in Pakistan, is treated as secret by the U.S. government. Under strict U.S. classification rules, U.S. officials have been barred from discussing strikes publicly and even privately outside of secure communications systems.
