The State Department has run roughshod over its charter, having clearly become an agency that sees its role as twofold — protect itself and its former secretary, the Washington Examiner said in its Wednesday editorial.

The Examiner criticized the State Department for its efforts to hide or mitigate Hillary Clinton's exposure for using a private email server:

  • Slams the State Department's response to the FBI by improperly whiting out Department names linked to instances of quid pro quo;
  • Called out the agency for pressuring federal staff to avoid national security redactions with the Benghazi communications;
  • Criticized State for its ruse of lobbying against classified redactions to make it seem Clinton's secret emails on her private server weren't all that secret.

"The public needs to ponder why an entire government agency dedicated itself to riding shotgun for the presidential candidate most likely to win.

"Perhaps Clinton's habitual secrecy, paranoia and dishonesty infected the State Department under her tenure there. Either way, it certainly shares those characteristics with her," the Examiner said.
