Clinton emails increasingly classified; 1 in 20 messages contained secrets

Thursday, October 1, 2015 | Tag Cloud

Clinton, before her official announcement, speaking to the media at the United Nations Headquarters regarding her use of a private email server while Secretary of State.

(Worthy News) - More than 5 percent of the latest batch of emails from former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, released Wednesday, contain classified information -- or twice the rate of the previous releases, raising tricky questions about whether the department is finding more secrets or being more thorough in screening the messages.

The emails also show an effort to hack into Mrs. Clinton’s personal account by sending her fake traffic tickets with a Trojan horse file attached. If she had clicked on the file, the hackers could have gained access to her computer.

Five such messages were sent to Mrs. Clinton on Aug. 3, 2011, according to the emails released Wednesday — part of a court-ordered release of more than 30,000 messages Mrs. Clinton shielded from public view until prodded to release them by the State Department, Congress and a federal judge.

Hillary Clinton Email: 6,300 New Pages From Private Account Released

The State Department today released about 6,300 pages of email from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's private account, the fifth batch of such documents released since May.

The newly released messages, which were posted on the State Department's Freedom of Information Act website, date from 2010 to 2011. The new production, which contains 3,849 additional new documents, accounts for 12 percent of the 52,000 pages in the State Department's possession, bringing the total amount of Clinton's email released to more than 37 percent.

Clinton has maintained she did not communicate classified information on her private account. But the documents released today show more email that has been deemed classified after the fact. The State Department said portions of 215 documents were upgraded to classified, bringing the total number of newly classified documents to over 400. [ Source ]
