An email from Hillary Clinton revealed she shared classified information with her daughter in 2009 and then deleted the email.
One of thousands of documents that the FBI recovered from Clinton’s private email server, the email to Chelsea was released Friday by the State Department.
The series of messages, entitled “Update,” were dated from December 2009 and begin with an email from President Obama’s deputy assistant and deputy national security adviser for international economic affairs, Michael Froman.
The redacted email, which contained classified information, was sent to several of Obama’s aides and Clinton’s foreign policy adviser at the State Department, Jake Sullivan, who then sent it to Clinton. The then-secretary of state forwarded the confidential email to her daughter Chelsea, a private citizen with no security clearance or position in government, under the pseudonym “Diane Reynolds.”
The entire text of the email, which contained foreign government information, was redacted, but a portion was released by the State Department back in February. “Wow — you can’t make this up — sorry to have missed all of that! Let me know if you learn anything else,” she wrote to Sullivan.
The State Department had received about 30,000 emails from Clinton that she claimed were work related but she deleted those she said were personal and dealt with yoga routines, food recipes and her daughter’s wedding, according to the Daily Caller.
Though it was not clear why the email to Chelsea was deleted, it is significant that the highly classified information was forwarded to Clinton’s daughter who was unauthorized to receive that confidential material.
