More than 15 per cent of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails released on Saturday contain classified information, with three being labeled ‘secret’.
The Daily Mail reports that of the 551 messages released on Saturday in response to a federal judge’s order, 81 were deemed classified, mostly at the lowest level of sensitivity. None were labeled ‘top secret’.
The State Department released more than 1,000 new pages of Hillary Clinton’s emails on Saturday. One of the messages is a long note from David Satterfield, a top US diplomat to Egypt, who told White House and State Department officials about negotiations in the Sinai.
The message’s contents have been deemed ‘secret’, though there is no sign they were labeled such at the time in which the email was sent, according to the Washington Times. Clinton was forwarded the message by top aide Jacob Sullivan.
The department has now released more than 45,000 pages of emails from the private account Clinton used as secretary of state. It plans to finish making her emails public on February 29, a day before the critical Super Tuesday primaries.
But ahead of the deadline previous deadline – January 29 – the State Department told the judge that they had discovered 4,000 additional emails that had not been checked for classified or private material. A top State Department open-records official took blame for not hitting the January deadline.
Clinton has struggled to put the email controversy to rest as she seeks the Democratic presidential nomination. Last month, 22 emails were withheld in full because they contained ‘top secret’ material. The FBI also is examining the security of the homebrew server she maintained for email use while in office.
