Told adviser to send sensitive messages ‘nonsecure’

Political EndorsementRuns for Office

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.
