If the NSA stores all of our email, wouldn’t it be safe to say that they could very easily verify what Hillary sent, when she sent it, to whom she sent it, and whether or not it was classified? Come to think of it, maybe they could check on Lois Lerner’s email, as well.
Ok, maybe not the NSA directly, but any one of the other ‘Five Eyes’ could, legally. England, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand all share information; somebody’s got it.
So Megyn Kelly was asking the wrong question. Maybe the question should have been,
“Could the NSA request this information from one of its partners?” Information is international now. It can be recorded by proxy (the NSA can’t do it, but they can hire someone to do it for them,) It can be split and stored in multiple locations, it can be moved and shared and monitored and intercepted quite easily.
*Update – Well, it took a while (almost a year,) but the truth has finally come out, from no less than William Binney himself.
“Binney was an architect of the NSA’s surveillance program. He became a famed whistleblower when he resigned on October 31, 2001, after spending more than 30 years with the agency.”
