“The Clinton attack is a response to a Jan. 14 letter from the intelligence community’s inspector general, Charles McCullough... Mr. McCullough said he has received sworn declarations from the intelligence community that former Secretary of State Clinton’s private email server contained…‘several dozen emails’ containing information deemed to be at ‘confidential, secret, and top secret/sap’ levels.
“The SAP—special access program—reference in particular is ringing Washington alarms. A SAP usually refers to a highly covert technology program, often weaponry. Knowledge of these programs is usually restricted to small groups of people on a need-to-know basis…
“The SAP news undermines Mrs. Clinton’s previous claim that the emails on her server weren’t classified ‘at the time’…
“The Daily Caller and watchdog group Cause of Action have also reported on other emails showing…that a State official suggested to Mrs. Clinton’s aides that she move to a government-issued BlackBerry and email address given ‘malfunctioning’ on her ‘personal unit’ and ‘personal email server.’ Mrs. Clinton’s confidante, Huma Abedin, rejected the request…
