On Monday, The Hill quoted a State Department official who claimed Hillary Clinton didn’t know how to access email on a computer when she became Secretary of State.
She only knew how to read email on a Blackberry mobile device, the official said.
According to The Hill:
Clinton’s chief of staff, Cheryl Mills, told State Department official Lewis Lukens that there could be a “problem,” because Clinton “does not know how to use a computer to do email — only [Blackberry],” he wrote in a 2009 email released on Monday.”
“But I said [it] would not take much training to get her up to speed,” he claimed.
It’s unclear whether Clinton was ever trained to use a computer to access emails.
The Hill then added:
However, the admission might bolster the argument that emails were not her main means of communication, despite the heavy focus on her use of a private email account and server for official State business. Clinton has previously claimed that she never had a computer in her office while serving as secretary of State.
The new email was released on Monday by Judicial Watch, a conservative organization that has filed multiple lawsuits to make emails from Clinton and her top aides public.
Naturally, people aren’t buying it:
@thehill Sure, Sure, I believe that! I also believe in the Easter bunny, Tooth fairy and that the moon is made of cheese!!

Of course, this comes out even as Fox News reported that some of the emails on Clinton’s homebrew server were so sensitive they actually put people lives at risk:
Highly classified Hillary Clinton emails that the intelligence community and State Department recently deemed too damaging to national security to release contain “operational intelligence” – and their presence on the unsecure, personal email system jeopardized “sources, methods and lives,” a U.S. government official who has reviewed the documents told Fox News.
The official, who was not authorized to speak on the record and was limited in discussing the contents because of their highly classified nature, was referring to the 22 “TOP SECRET” emails that the State Department announced Friday it could not release in any form, even with entire sections redacted.
Naturally, this is all part of the vast right-wing conspiracy against Clinton…
And to think she wants to be the nation’s chief executive…
