Hillary Clinton ordered her aides to have classified information sent to her “nonsecure” when her advisor told her they were having trouble sending via secure fax, newly released emails reveal.
The latest tranche of emails from Clinton’s private server, released on New Year’s Eve, included an exchange between the former Secretary of State and senior advisor Jake Sullivan in June of 2011.
Sullivan told Clinton “they’ve had issues sending secure fax.” Instead of protecting classified information, which almost certainly would be involved if secure encryption is used, Clinton chose to simply ignore the rules.
“If they can’t, turn into non paper w no identifying heading and send nonsecure,” she emailed. In many hostile countries that routinely spy on America, that absolutely guarantees classified information falling into enemy hands.
Of course, all these emails were sent using a non-government server hosted in a bathroom, so security was never a priority anyway.
Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon denied that the information was classified to CBS News’ Nancy Cordes. “It is false that Hillary Clinton asked for classified material to be sent over a nonsecure system,” Fallon said.
The White House remained mum on the issue.
