Hillary Clinton Hillary Clinton Email Scandal

Told adviser to send sensitive messages ‘nonsecure’

8 Jan, 2016

According to one of 1,262 emails released by the State Department, on June 17, 2011, Clinton told Jake Sullivan, one of her top advisers, to send her a sensitive message ‘nonsecure’. The batch also contains 66 classified messages, bringing the total from her email server to 1,340. The exchange happened when Sullivan had trouble sending a faxed set of talking points to Clinton securely. Clinton responds:

If they can’t, turn into nonpaper w no identifying heading and send nonsecure.

It is unclear whether the talking points themselves contained classified information. The State Department says a review showed that the document in question was sent “apparently by secure fax, after all,” and was never was sent to Clinton by email. Clinton’s campaign:

It is false that Hillary Clinton asked for classified material to be sent over a nonsecure system.
