Hillary Clinton has been under fire recently for her use of a private e-mail server to send classified information. New information has recently surfaced.
It is now known that Clinton’s use of her private email server to send out classified information extended past her tenure as Secretary of State.
On May 28, 2013, months after stepping down as secretary of state, Clinton sent out an email regarding the “123 Deal” to a group of aides and diplomats.
The email is redacted because it includes “information regarding foreign governors” and “foreign relations or foreign activities of the United States, including confidential sources,” making it very classified, according to the New York Post. It will officially be declassified May 28, 2033
The email was sent from the address firstname.lastname@example.org, which is associated with Clinton’s private server. Its recipients included Deputy Secretary of State William Burns, diplomat Jeffrey Feltman, policy aide Jake Sullivan, diplomat Kurt Campbell, State Department chief of staff Cheryl Mills, and Clinton aide Huma Abedin.
The “123 Deal” was an agreement between the United Arab Emirates and the United States in 2009 on materials and technological sharing for nuclear energy production.
The e-mail was obtained via a Freedom of Information act request form the Republican National Committee. Since then, the committee has been vocal on how this latest revelation makes her untrustworthy.
“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.”
The Trump campaign has released a statement on this new information. Jason Miller, Trump’s senior communications advisor said,
“Hillary Clinton’s secret server jeopardized our national security and sensitive diplomatic efforts on more than 2,000 occasions, and shockingly, it now appears her reckless conduct continued even after leaving the State Department. Hillary Clinton’s terrible judgement shows that she cannot be trusted with our national security.”
Clinton is believed to have sent 2,101 emails that contained at least some classified information.
