The email scandal might reach other Obama officials

John R. Schindler, who writes at his XX Committee blog, published an article at The Daily Beast:

Will Hillary Clinton’s Emails Burn the White House?

Schindler reports that counterintelligence officials suspect that Hillary Clinton is not the only Obama administration official with email problems. The other day, more details emerged about classified and sensitive data being relayed via personal email accounts at the US embassy in Japan, by not only embassy staff, but also the ambassador, Caroline Kennedy.  Schindler explains:

“EmailGate has barely touched the White House directly, although it’s clear that some senior administration officials beyond the State Department were aware of Hillary’s unorthodox email and server habits, given how widely some of the emails from Clinton and her staff were forwarded around the Beltway. Obama’s inner circle may not be off-limits to the FBI for long, however, particularly since the slipshod security practices of certain senior White House officials have been a topic of discussions in the Intelligence Community for years.

Hillary Clinton was far from the only senior Obama appointee to play fast and loose with classified materials, according to Intelligence Community insiders. While most counterspies agree that Hillary’s practices—especially using her own server and having her staffers place classified information into unclassified emails, in violation of Federal law—were especially egregious, any broad-brush investigation into security matters are likely to turn up other suspects, they maintain.”
