Two inspectors general have asked the Department of Justice to investigate whether classified information was mishandled in relation to Clinton’s use of a private email account.
She added that she had released 500 pages of emails and that “I’ve said repeatedly that I will answer questions” posed by a congressional panel.
“This is President Obama’s Department of Justice saying that she may have revealed classified information“, he said on CBS’s “Face the Nation” Sunday.
A spokesman for Clinton, the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination, said on Saturday she had accepted an invitation from the Benghazi investigation committee to testify on October 22.
Clinton handed over some 30,000 emails from the private account to the State Department after she quit in 2013, but many thousands of others that she says are not related to her work were deleted.
“Secretary Clinton’s marketing campaign might need to attain out to her lawyer, Mr. David Kendall, with whom the Committee has had ongoing conversations”, Ware stated in a press release.
The inspector general of the U.S. intelligence community recently alerted the Justice Department to the potential compromise of classified information arising from Clinton’s server. In a sample of 40 messages that were checked, at least four were considered to have information the government considered secret. Using it also happened to shield her emails from Freedom of Information requests and nosy members of Congress. Neither reason was justification to hold potentially classified material on a personal server. “I don’t see how she can run”.
“Hillary Clinton’s reckless attempt to get around public records laws has jeopardized our national security”.
Asked whether she knew what those four e-mails were, Clinton said, “I have no idea”. “That is a discussion among various agencies within the government”, Clinton said.
Clinton used a private email server instead of a government account. The US Justice Department said on Friday it had been notified of the concerns of the inspectors general and was weighing whether to look into the possible mishandling of classified information.
Trump said he agreed, but that the reporters for the paper had written untrue things about him long before the editorial appeared last weekend.
“What they want to do is pull off the scab now, take the pain, so that come the general election campaign, they can say, ‘We answered all the questions that anybody had, ‘” Brad Marston, a Republican political strategist, told the Herald.
“Friday began with the printing of a story that was false”, Merrill said in a statement.
“Maybe the heat is getting to everybody”, she said.
