Clinton In A Rambling Answer On Secret Server, Refused To Admit She Made An Error In Judgment. CUOMO: "On that issue, Des Moines Register gave you an endorsement. They questioned your judgment when it came to the e-mail issue, and you know this, but for the audience in 2008, quote, when she says, when she makes a mistake, just say so. This weekend they said, that's a lesson that you have not learned. Yes, you apologized, but only when you needed to. Not when you first could have. Fair criticism?" CLINTON: "Well, I think that, you know, look, I was delighted to get the Register's endorsement. And it was a very generous one. And yes, I think that's a fair criticism. You know, I, I had, I had no intention of doing anything other than having a convenient way of communicating and it turned out not to be so convenient. So again, we've answered every question and we will continue to do so. But you know, maybe being faster, trying to scramble around to find out what all of this means, I probably should have done that quicker." CUOMO: "You're willing to say it was an error in judgment, should have apologize…" CLINTON: "No, I'm not saying it was an error in judgment because nothing I did was wrong. It was not in any way prohibited…" CUOMO: "Not apologizing sooner…" CLINTON: "Well apologizing sooner. As soon as you can, but part of the problem, and I would just say this as not an excuse, but an explanation, when you're facing something like that, you've got to get the facts. And it takes time to get the facts. So when I said, 'Hey, take all my e-mails,' make them public that had never been done before, ever, by anybody. And so we've been sorting our way through this because it is kind of a unique situation, I'm happy people are looking at the e-mails. Some of them are frankly a little, little embarrassing. You know, you find out that sometimes I'm not the best on technology and things like that, but look, I think it's great. Let people sort them through and as we have seen, there is a lot of, you know, a lot of interest, but it's something that took - time to get done."

Clinton's Secret Server Contained Highly Classified Information, Exceeding "Top Secret"

The New York Times Headline: "Hillary Clinton Email Said To Include Material Exceeding 'Top Secret'" (Mark Mazzetti, "Hillary Clinton Email Said To Include Material Exceeding 'Top Secret,'" The New York Times , 1/19/16)

Clinton's Secret Server Even Contained Intelligence From Special Access Programs (SAP). " Hillary Clinton's emails on her unsecured, homebrew server contained intelligence from the U.S. government's most secretive and highly classified programs, according to an unclassified letter from a top inspector general to senior lawmakers. Fox News exclusively obtained the text of the unclassified letter, sent Jan. 14 from Intelligence Community Inspector General I. Charles McCullough III. It laid out the findings of a recent comprehensive review by intelligence agencies that identified 'several dozen' additional classified emails -- including specific intelligence known as 'special access programs' (SAP)."

Intelligence From "Secret Access Programs" Is Even More Sensitive Than Intelligence Designated "Top Secret." "Intelligence from a 'special access program,' or SAP, is even more sensitive than that designated as 'top secret' - as were two emails identified last summer in a random sample pulled from Clinton's private server she used as secretary of state." (Catherine Herridge And Pamela Browne, "Inspector General: Clinton Emails Had Intel From Most Secretive, Classified Programs," Fox News, 1/19/16)SAP Is Restricted To Those With A "Need To Know" Access, As It Likely Reveals Sources And Methods Of Intelligence Collection, Or It Exposes A Human Asset. "Access to a SAP is restricted to those with a 'need-to-know' because exposure of the intelligence would likely reveal the source, putting a method of intelligence collection -- or a human asset -- at risk." (Catherine Herridge And Pamela Browne, "Inspector General: Clinton Emails Had Intel From Most Secretive, Classified Programs," Fox News, 1/19/16)
