State Dept. declares 22 Clinton emails 'top secret'

Friday, January 29, 2016 | Tag Cloud

(Worthy News) - The State Department said Friday it is withholding 22 emails from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's email account for containing 'top secret' material, and another 18 messages she exchanged with President Obama, saying those are privileged communications.

Department spokesman John Kirby said the intelligence community said the emails contained that high level of sensitivity and the State Department now agrees with that, and upgraded the classification to prevent their release.

And unlike other secret messages that were released in part with redactions, these messages won’t be released at all, Mr. Kirby said, pointing to the request by the intelligence community. [ Source ]

Official: Some Clinton emails 'too damaging' to release

The intelligence community has now deemed some of Hillary Clinton’s emails “too damaging" to national security to release under any circumstances, according to a U.S. government official close to the ongoing review. A second source, who was not authorized to speak on the record, backed up the finding.

The decision to withhold the documents in full, and not provide even a partial release with redactions, further undercuts claims by the State Department and the Clinton campaign that none of the intelligence in the emails was classified when it hit Clinton's personal server. [ Source ]
