Clinton emailed classified info after leaving State: report


Hillary Clinton emailed classified information after leaving the State Department, The New York Post reported Wednesday.

{mosads}The Democratic presidential nominee sent an email to a group of diplomats and aides on May 28, 2013, about the “123 Deal” — a 2009 agreement between the United Arab Emirates and the U.S. regarding nuclear energy production — according to the Post.

The email, which was sent months after she left the State Department, went to people including Deputy Secretary of State William Burns, diplomat Jeffrey Feltman, policy aide Jake Sullivan, diplomat Kurt Campbell, State Department chief of staff Cheryl Mills and top aide Huma Abedin.

It was sent from the address — which is associated with Clinton’s private email server — and has been heavily redacted because it includes information that is classified, according to The Post.

The message will be declassified on May 28, 2033, according to markings on the email, which was obtained by the Republican National Committee through a Freedom of Information Act request.

The email is redacted because it includes “information regarding foreign governors” and “foreign relations or foreign activities of the United States, including confidential sources,” according to publication.

“Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified information was so pervasive it continued after she left government,” Republican National Committee research director Raj Shah told the Post.

“She clearly can’t be trusted with our nation’s security.”
