Washington DC [USA], Nov. 6 (ANI): Just two days to go and one would think America has had enough of scandals regarding the two Presidential nominees. But no, here is another one.

The New York Post has an investigative report this morning that as the Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton routinely asked her maid to print out sensitive government e-mails and documents, including those that had classified information.

Marina Santos's name figures in Clinton's emails. The New York Post report states that Clinton would first receive highly sensitive e-mails from top aides at the State Department and then request that they, in turn, forward the messages and any attached documents to Santos to print out for her at her home.

Santos did not have security clearance to receive or print those mails.

The expose quotes from the emails: "Pls ask Marina to print for me in am," Clinton e-mailed top aide Huma Abedin regarding a redacted 2011 message marked sensitive but unclassified. Not just Huma, another Clinton aide Monica Hanley too seems to be in on the maid's proximity to Hillary Clinton.

In a classified 2012 e-mail dealing with the new president of Malawi, Hanley apparantly advised Clinton, "We can ask Marina to print this." In another mail marked "sensitive" but unclassified from Hanley to Clinton refers to a fax the staff wanted Clinton "to see before your Netanyahu mtg. Marina will grab for you."

The Post report says that among the emails that the maid printed out, one had a subject line - "Revisions to the Iran points". In it, the text reads, "Marina is trying to print for you." The Iran mail was supposedly marked 'confidential' and 'secret'. The report says that Clinton's maid, who did not have security clearance, had access to a highly secure room called an SCIF (sensitive compartmented information facility) that diplomatic security agents set up at Whitehaven, Hillary and Bill Clinton's Washington DC house.

When a Post reporter confronted Santos at her DC apartment on Friday, she said, "I don't speak to reporters." (ANI)
