Report: Hillary Sent Classified Emails From Private Server After Leaving State Dept.

By The Stream Published on September 1, 2016

Hillary Clinton continued sending classified emails from her private server even after leaving the State Department, according to a report Wednesday in the New York Post.

“On May 28, 2013, months after stepping down as Secretary of State, Clinton sent an email to a group of top aides and diplomats about the ‘123 Deal’ with United Arab Emirates.” The 123 Deal, signed by the U.S. and UAB in 2009, concerned the sharing of materials and technology for nuclear energy production.

The Post reports the email, sent from Clinton’s  [email protected] private server account, went to Deputy Secretary of State William Burns, diplomat Jeffrey Feltman, policy aide Jake Sullivan, diplomat Kurt Campbell, State Department chief of staff Cheryl Mills and Clinton aide Huma Abedin. As The Daily Caller notes, Mills and Abedin had left government service with Clinton three months earlier in February 2013.

The Republican National Committee obtained the email via a Freedom of Information Act request. However, it had been heavily redacted by the State Department.

According to markings on the document, the email was redacted because it contains “information regarding foreign governors” and because it contains “Foreign relations or foreign activities of the United States, including confidential sources.” The information was classified as “CONFIDENTIAL,” and is not to be declassified until May 28, 2033, 20 years after the email was sent.

The Trump campaign immediately jumped on the revelation that Hillary, even as a private citizen, was haphazard with classified information and “putting national security at risk.”

Hillary Clinton’s secret server jeopardized our national security and sensitive diplomatic efforts on more than 2,000 occasions, and shockingly, it now appears her reckless conduct continued even after leaving the State Department. Hillary Clinton’s terrible judgment shows she cannot be trusted with our national security.

The State Department had already declared that 2,101 emails Hillary Clinton sent while Secretary of State contained at least some form of classified information.

Clinton continues to dispute that the material was classified when she handled it. But as Mediaite notes, “Clinton has long maintained that she never sent or kept any classified information on her private email server. When announcing that he was not recommending charges against Clinton, FBI director James Comey stated bluntly that that was not true.”

Wednesday’s NY Post report comes a day after it was revealed that Clinton withheld at least 30 emails potentially related to the Benghazi attack from the State Department.
