US State: Dozens of old Clinton emails newly classified
WASHINGTON, United States—The U.S. State Department says portions of 275 emails released from Hillary Clinton’s time as secretary of state have been newly classified.
The Democratic presidential candidate has said she didn’t send or receive classified information through her personal email, which was run off a private server in her New York home.
In all, the State Department says 1,274 of Clinton’s emails were retroactively classified since the department started reviewing them for release.
Two emails released Thursday have been designated as “secret,” the second-highest level of classification.
While the information wasn’t classified at the time, it could fuel more questions about whether sensitive information was at risk on her server.
The State Department was delivering a New Year’s Eve batch of about 5,500 pages of Clinton emails.
