The New York Times reports that one of the emails stored on Hillary Clinton’s private server contained information on the North Korean nuclear program that government agencies consider top secret.
The Times reports that the CIA and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency “concluded that the emails were ‘Top Secret,’ the highest classification of government intelligence, when they were sent to Mrs. Clinton in 2009 and 2011.”
The State Department has disputed that classification. “Classification is rarely a black and white question, and it is common for the State Department to engage internally and with our interagency partners to arrive at the appropriate decision…” spokesman John Kirby said in a statement. “At this time, any conclusion about the classification of the documents in question would be premature.”
The Clinton campaign has naturally also pushed back against the report, dismissing it as nothing more than “bureaucratic infighting.”
