Red Flag: Hillary Directed Staff to Remove Classified Markings on Document

Raj Shah - January 8, 2016

In an email released by the State Department early this morning, Hillary instructs members of her staff to send secure information over insecure channels.

Attempting to retrieve talking points (since redacted), Hillary demands that a “secure fax” be sent with “no identifying heading” over email.

The exchange raises questions about Clinton’s treatment of classified information, particularly in light of her preferred line of defense that none of her emails were “marked” classified at the time. 

Was classified material on her secret server unmarked at her direction in many instances?

See the full exchange below: 

This appears to be part of a pattern of behavior by Hillary Clinton where protocols designed to protect national security and our diplomatic efforts were cast aside. Serious legal questions are raised by these emails given the fact Clinton signed non-disclosure agreements obligating her to protect classified information regardless of whether it was marked.

The email comes from the latest batch of Clinton emails released by the State Department.  With 66 new messages deemed classified, the number of classified emails found on Clinton’s secret server rises to 1,340.
