BREAKING: Obama Admin Confirms Classified Clinton Emails
It has been almost a year since Hillary Clinton claimed last March that there was no classified information on her server:
CLINTON: “I did not email any classified material to anyone on my email. There is no classified material. So I’m certainly well-aware of the classification requirements and did not send classified material.”
However, The Associated Press just reported that the State Department is “looking into whether Clinton emails were classified when they were sent,” raising the stakes for Clinton’s illicit use of her private email server.
The report came at the same time another report from The Associated Press said that the Obama administration has “confirmed for the first time Friday that Hillary Clinton’s unsecured home server contained … 22 emails with material demanding one of the highest levels of classification.”
For the second time, the Clinton campaign has criticized the Obama administration for “overclassification”:
This is overclassification run amok. We adamently oppose the complete blocking of the release of these emails. https://t.co/77s6mtm0JA

However, unlike last time when the Clinton campaign and the State Department both contested the classification of two Clinton emails as “top secret,” this time the Clinton campaign stands alone. The State Department’s bombshell admission that some of Clinton’s emails are top secret and are being withheld in full, leaves Clinton’s campaign flailing in the wind.
With the FBI at her doorstep and the State Department beginning its own investigation, the time has come for Clinton to come clean with the American people about her irresponsible mismanagement of the country’s most valuable secrets.
