• Sheer Number of Hillary Emails With Classified Info Grows To This? Are There More?

    Hillary Rodham Clinton’s claims she has never sent government secrets via her personal e-mail account, yet the State Department has already identified 60 private emails containing classified information.

    That figure is likely to grow as officials investigate a total of 30,000 work-related emails that passed through her personal email server.

    The process is expected to take months and isn’t likely to be completed until January, around the time Clinton will face voters in the Iowa caucuses in her bid for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination.

    Nearly all contained classified secrets at the lowest level of “confidential” and one contained information at the intermediate level of “secret,”

    The 60 emails are among those that have been reviewed and cleared for release under the Freedom of Information Act as part of a open-records lawsuit. Some of the emails have multiple redactions for classified information.

    These 60 emails that were uncovered an addition to the two “top-secret” two emails identified in recent days by Intelligence Community Inspector General James McCullough as containing some of the nation’s most sensitive secrets pertaining to Pentagon satellites, drones or intercepts.

    Clinton on Saturday insisted she did not knowingly transmit classified material and attributed the investigations to right-wing attacks.

    “I never sent classified material on my e-mail, and I never received any that was marked classified,” she said.

    “The State Department has confirmed that I did not send nor receive material marked classified or send material marked classified,” the former secretary of state added.

    Inspector General McCullough predicts Clinton’s personal emails will likely contained hundreds of disclosures of classified information.
