Clinton received sensitive info on private email account.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton received information on her private email account about the deadly attack on U.S. diplomatic facilities in Benghazi that was later classified “secret” at the request of the FBI, according to documents released Friday, underscoring lingering questions about how responsibly she handled sensitive information on a home server. The nearly 900 pages of her correspondence released by the State Department also contained several messages that were deemed sensitive but unclassified, detailed her daily schedule and contained information — censored in the documents as released — about the CIA that the government is barred from publicly disclosing. The messages have been turned over to a select House committee investigating the Sept. 11-12, 2012, attacks on U.S. compounds in Benghazi, in which the ambassador to Libya, J.

Taken together, the correspondence provides examples of material considered to be sensitive that Clinton, the front-runner for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, received on the account run out of her home. These documents represent the first release of tens of thousands of pages of email, which Clinton stored on a private server before handing them over to the federal government last year. In a September 2012 email to Clinton, top aide Jake Sullivan told her another Obama administration official, Susan Rice, stumbled in an appearance on ABC’s Sunday news show “This Week.” Rice was criticized for insisting the Benghazi attack was spurred by Libyan street protests over an anti-Muslim video and not planned by al-Qaida-inspired militants. The RNC made its claim in a May 18 blog post hours after TheNew York Times published copies of emails that Clinton had sent and received when she was secretary. In an email addressed to “H” that included a full transcript of Rice’s interview, Sullivan said Rice, who was then the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, “did make clear our view that this started spontaneously and then evolved.

Clinton, campaigning in New Hampshire, said Friday she was aware that the FBI now wanted some of the email to be classified, “but that doesn’t change the fact all of the information in the emails was handled appropriately.” State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said, “It was not classified at the time. In a statement, the South Carolina Republican trashed this partial disclosure as a handful of “self-selected emails” that was “reviewed and released” by lawyers who owe a “fiduciary responsibility to Secretary Clinton”. That seemed to clearly contradict Clinton’s claim that she used only hdr22@clintonemail.com while in office, which was from January 2009 to February 2013. The occurrence of subsequent upgrade does not mean anyone did anything wrong.” It’s not clear if Clinton’s “homebrew” computer system used encryption software to communicate securely with government email services. The email in question, forwarded to Clinton by her deputy chief of staff Jake Sullivan, relates to reports of arrests in Libya of possible suspects in the attack in which four Americans were killed.

The emails, from the personal email account Clinton kept while at State, showed she and her staff tracked the political fallout from the attack, including claims that she had tried to misrepresent the cause of the raid on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. * Jeremy Peters reports that Marco Rubio is the candidate that has Team Hillary really nervous, because of his age and capacity to seriously contest the Latino vote. * The Koch brothers are attacking Hillary Clinton for supporting the Export-Import Bank. Tomlinson ran an optical character recognition on the PDF of the emails that the Times posted to its website, and what he found is consistent with the Clinton campaign’s explanation for what happened. They said 23 words of the 18 November 2012 message were redacted from the day’s release of 296 emails, totaling 896 pages, to protect information that could damage foreign relations. Charles Gaba makes the key point about the GOP plan, which would also repeal the individual mandate because, well, just because: It may be obvious to normal people, but it bears repeating: The purpose of any modification to the ACA (or any law, for that matter) is supposed to be to improve it so that said law is more successful at its objectives…which in this case refers to protecting patients and providing affordable healthcare.

You know, like it says right there in the title: “The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act”. * Gallup reports that for the first time in their polling, the number of people calling themselves liberals on social issues equals the number calling themselves conservatives. * Today’s lesson in the meaning of the word “hypocrisy”: Steve Benen has to explain that it isn’t “hypocritical” of Elizabeth Warren to object to an arbitration system included in the TPP when years ago she defended the U.S. government in such a hearing. * And Mike Huckabee stands up for admitted child molester Josh Duggar, I guess because Duggar is a conservative Christian, so hey, we all make mistakes, right? Me too.” In one email, Clinton aide Philippe Reines noted that a reporter for The Wall Street Journal went “knee to knee” with Clinton during an interview. “Amazed she didn’t try knee in-between knee,” Reines joked about the reporter, Monica Langley. He said he was shocked Langley would “invade” Clinton’s personal space, comparing it to “a dental hygienist rolling around the floor to get the best access to your mouth.” Reines called Langley’s behavior “unacceptable.” Even so, Reines, a famously prickly critic of the news media, told a senior State Department official he thought the interview was “wonderful. I apologize, both for my language and for my tone.” Hastings thanked Reines for the note and added, “in the interest of diplomacy and extending an olive branch: we should get a drink sometime, off the record.”

Committee chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., said that the released emails were incomplete, adding that it “strains credibility” to view them as a thorough record of Clinton’s tenure. A number of the messages were marked with codes indicating that the information had been censored for reasons related to the U.S. intelligence community, law enforcement or personal privacy — a process that happened after they’d already been circulated through Clinton’s home server. Much of the correspondence concerned the mundane matters of high-level government service, press clippings, speech drafts, and coordination of calls with other top officials as well as chit-chat about shopping between Clinton and top aide Huma Abedin. “What a wonderful, strong and moving statement by your boss,” Christian Brose, a top adviser to Sen.

Me too.” There are repeated warnings of the unrest in Libya, though Clinton has said she was never personally involved in questions of security in Benghazi before the attack. One message describes a one-day trip by Stevens in March 2011 to “get a sense of the situation on the ground” and prepare for a 30-day stay in the future. Secretary Clinton used one email account during her tenure at State (with the exception of her first weeks in office while transitioning from an email account she had previously used). In March 2013, a month after she left the Department, Gawker published the email address she used while Secretary, and so she had to change the address on her account.

As early as April 2011, Clinton was forwarded a message sent to her staff that the situation in the country had worsened to the point “where Stevens is considering departure from Benghazi,” The email was marked “Importance: High.” Associated Press writers Matthew Daly, Stephen Braun and Eileen Sullivan in Washington and Ken Thomas in Hampton, New Hampshire, contributed to this report. But why would the emails — including the one we display above — show hrod17@clintonemail.com as the sender if it came from hdr22@clintonemail.com? The steps that we followed for the test were the same as those suggested by Tomlinson, who was inducted into the Internet Hall of Fame for inventing email. There are no counterexamples.” The RNC noted that IT expert Bruce Webster told theDaily Caller that Clinton’s explanation “made no sense.” But the conservative website also quoted Webster as saying it is possible with servers hosted by Microsoft Exchange — which, as it turns out, is the server that we used for our test.
