Security breach revealed: Some emails sent through Hillary’s server contained now-classified info

The State Department on Friday released 296 pages of emails Hillary Clinton sent while secretary of state, including some classified information that was routed through her private server.

The emails had previously been handed over to the committee investigating the 2012 Benghazi attack.

When the State Department announced in a tweet that it was releasing the emails, one person wondered:

The redacted portions contained classified information — sent and received through Clinton’s private server, exposing the emails to security breaches.

The Associated Press reported that some information was redacted “Friday at the FBI’s request,” adding:

The information was not classified at the time the email was sent and was upgraded from unclassified to “secret” on Friday, according to State Department officials. The officials said 23 words of the November 2012 message were redacted from the release of 896 emails totaling 296 pages, to protect information that may damage foreign relations.

They said no other redactions were made for classification reasons.

However, one Twitter user had a question for the State Department:

Good question. As syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer said, it’s all “a farce.”
