Hillary Clinton emailThis could be the smoking gun that proves Hillary Clinton violated the Espionage Act with her private email server.

Breitbart News reported Friday that Clinton listed the names of hidden U.S. intelligence officials on her unprotected email server.

Many names have been redacted by the State Department with the classification code “B3 CIA PERS/ORG,” in emails it has released, which means that if their names were made known it would violate the Central Intelligence Act of 1949, according to Breitbart.

The State Department produced a document to Judicial Watch in April 2014 that identifies different types of “(b)(3)” redactions, including “CIA PERS/ORG,” which it defines as information “Specifically exempted from disclosure by statute … Central Intelligence Act of 1949.”

“That’s what it suggests,” Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton told Breitbart News, referring to the indication that Clinton disclosed the names of CIA-protected intelligence sources, based on the B3 redactions.

The CIA justifies “(b)(3)” redactions with this description: “(b)(3) Applies to the Director’s statutory obligations to protect from disclosure intelligence sources and methods, as well as the organization, functions, names, official titles, salaries, or numbers of personnel employed by the Agency, in accord with the National Security Act of 1947 and the CIA Act of 1949, respectively.”


“Per the colleague who handles this issue, we are not speaking to the content of emails,” Nicole Thompson, a spokeswoman for the State Department, told Breitbart News.

Breitbart listed several specific examples where the redactions were made, which can be read here.
