Jimmy Fallon wants to know how hard it is to steal classified documents. Maybe he's asking the wrong former White House resident.
September 7, 2022

Hillary Clinton and her daughter Chelsea appeared on The Tonight Show Tuesday, to promote their new Apple+TV show "Gutsy." But Jimmy Fallon had some, um, unrelated questions.

JIMMY FALLON: I want to ask you both, because since you both lived at the White House... how easy is it to walk out with boxes of classified documents? I was wondering.

CHELSEA CLINTON: It's the plural that kills me, right? You're like, not just one box or one document -- boxes and thousands of documents.

KIMMEL: Does he know what he's doing? What would you do with that? I mean, is it for -- is it for the presidential library? [ laughter ]

HILLARY CLINTON: Well, usually when it comes to presidential libraries, everything is in the archives. We have a National Archive and Record Administration where everything goes. And then it gets transferred to a presidential library...

...At least that's the way it used to happen.

Right-wing Twitter appears to be having a fit about this. Good.
