• What CIA, Spy-Satellite Agency Agree On About Clinton Emails

    A second review Clinton’s personal server concluded that at least two emails on Hillary Clinton’s personal server contained “top secret” information when the Democratic frontrunner received them, The New York Times reported Monday night.

    One of the emails stored on Clinton’s private server contained information on the North Korean nuclear program that government agencies consider highly classified.

    The CIA and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency “concluded that the emails were ‘Top Secret,’ the highest classification of government intelligence, when they were sent to Mrs. Clinton in 2009 and 2011.”

    The State Department has disputed that classification.

    “Classification is rarely a black and white question, and it is common for the State Department to engage internally and with our inter-agency partners to arrive at the appropriate decision,” spokesman John Kirby said in a statement. “At this time, any conclusion about the classification of the documents in question would be premature.”

    The Clinton campaign is dismissing the report, characterizing the findings as a as nothing more than “bureaucratic infighting.”

    “Our hope remains that these releases continue without being hampered by bureaucratic infighting among the intelligence community, and that the releases continue to be as inclusive and transparent as possible,” campaign spokesman Nick Merrill told the Times.

    Clinton told the Associated Press on Monday that she didn’t need to apologize for using the private email server because “what I did was allowed” and insisted again that she never received classified information on her server.

    “I did not send or receive any information marked classified,” Clinton said. “I take the responsibilities of handling classified materials very seriously and did so.”

    If classified emails were still found after a hand-selected group spent months deleting emails, imagine how many classified emails were originally on Clinton’s computer.
