Charles McCullough III Hillary Clinton Hillary Clinton Email Scandal

Seven classified mails found, two ‘Top Secret’

11 Aug, 2015

McCulloch, the inspector general for the Intelligence Community, notifies senior members of Congress that seven e-mails contained classified information, including two with top-secret material. Two of a sample of forty classified emails discovered on the server Clinton maintained at her New York home contained material deemed to be ‘TOP SECRET//SI//TK//NOFORN”, one of the highest security classifications. Much of the classified information in the e-mail conversations originated with the CIA, according to two government officials familiar with the records. Some of the information was deemed to be classified by the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency’s classification guidelines. The information included references to information related to satellite images and electronic communications, according to the officials.

McCullough also located two e-mails that included classified material from among a separate batch of 296 related to the 2012 attacks on U.S. outposts in Benghazi. One of those e-mails had been publicly released by the State Department, causing consternation within the intelligence community. He has also located one additional e-mail in the sample of 40 that was classified at the time it was sent but has since been declassified and two e-mails they believe contain information that the State Department considers classified, and they have alerted the agency so it can conduct its own review. Clinton aides have maintained that nothing on her server was classified at the time she saw it, suggesting that classified messages were given the label after the fact.
