Although Hillary Clinton’s long-time claim she did not send or receive classified information on a private email server secretly maintained in her New York home has been debunked, evidence emerged Wednesday the former Secretary did in fact send classified information after she resigned her post as America’s top diplomat.
The document was obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request submitted by the Republican National Committee.
According to a report in the New York Post, Clinton sent at least one classified note to fellow diplomats, Deputy Secretary of State William Burns, Ambassador Jeffrey Feltman, aides Jake Sullivan, Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin and diplomat Kurt Campbell.
Despite being heavily redacted, the email indicates it is related to the “123 Deal” with Middle Eastern partner, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on the peaceful use of civilian nuclear energy.
Beginning with a March 2015 appearance at the United Nations (UN), Clinton repeatedly asserted she never sent or received classified information on her homebrew server, stating:
“I did not email any classified material to anyone on my email. There is no classified material. So I’m certainly well-aware of the classification requirements and did not send classified material.”
Seeking to assure the public of the security her system harnessed, Clinton asserted “there was no breach” of her server when addressing reporters at the UN.
It is widely speculated Clinton did in fact send over 2,000 emails which accompanied classified material.
It is now public knowledge the former First Lady sent classified matter after her departure from the State Department.
