Campaign: Classified emails were on server

20 Aug, 2015

Clinton’s campaign says emails on the private server she used when she was secretary of state contained material that is now classified. The campaign says the material had been retroactively classified out of an abundance of caution by U.S. intelligence agencies. Th campaign says the controversy amounts to a dispute between different agencies within the Obama administration about what constitutes classified material and what should be released publicly. Spokesperson:
