Last Friday, the State Department revealed that it discovered 22 top-secret emails on the private computer server to which Hillary Clinton diverted all her governmental email traffic. This acknowledgement marked a radical departure from previous State Department pronouncements and a direct repudiation of Clinton's repeated assertions that she neither sent nor received anything "marked classified." 

Politically, Clinton has lost the final argument in her public arsenal—that she did not recognize top-secret data unless it was marked as top secret. So let's be as blunt about this as the FBI will be, writes Andrew Napolitano: Causing state secrets to reside in a nonsecure, nongovernmental venue, whether done intentionally or negligently, constitutes the crime of espionage.
