"I never sent or received any e-mail that was deemed classified, that was marked classified." Hillary Clinton has repeated that claim in several different ways since the beginning of the scandal that may put her in jail and will at least almost certainly dash her hopes of ever re-occupying 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. While the evidence to the contrary begins to stack up, she just repeats the denial.
While she may still have friends in the State Department sticking with her, it appears that the list of powerful people willing to help her out of her latest scandal is fairly thin. In fact, State Department officials may not be as interested in helping their former boss as they are in covering their own hides.
Hillary Clinton has a long list of titles: former attorney, former first lady, former New York senator, and former secretary of state. Considering the severity of her e-mail scandal, she may soon add another title to that list: former candidate for the Democratic nomination. As the facts continue to come out, her problems are looking increasingly serious. And — her protestations to the contrary notwithstanding — she seems to know it.
