Hillary Clinton Emailed Classified Info After She Left State Department

By now, it’s a well-established fact that Hillary Clinton sent classified information from a private, unsecured email server during her tenure as secretary of State. As it turns out, months after she left office she continued to share classified information from her private server that was housed in a bathroom and less secure than a Gmail account, the New York Post reported.

The Republican National Committee obtained an email dated May 28, 2013, several months after Clinton had stepped down from her role as secretary, in response to a Freedom of Information Act request.

The email, which contained information about a nuclear deal with the United Arab Emirates, known as the “123 Deal,” was heavily redacted because it contains “foreign relations or foreign activities of the United States, including confidential sources,” the Post reported.

More than 2,000 of the 30,000 emails Hillary Clinton turned over to the State Department have been marked “confidential,” including eight that contained “top secret” information. Of the 15,000 emails Clinton tried to delete from her server, at least two contained confidential information.

Many believe that Clinton, who admitted in an email to top aide Huma Abedin that she used a private server due to “privacy” concerns, didn’t want to use a State Department email address so her correspondence wouldn’t be subjected to the transparency of open records requests or public scrutiny.

Throughout her time in the State Department, Hillary Clinton met mostly with Clinton Foundation donors. Top aides repeatedly did favors for Clinton Foundation bigwigs. They re-arranged Clinton’s schedule to accommodate their requests for one-on-one meetings with her and even found a job for someone at the behest of a Clinton Foundation co-founder.
