Clinton Email Dump May Show Law Broken

State Dept. drops docs in the middle of the night

The State Department dropped another load of Clinton emails at around 2 a.m. Friday. In addition to the odd hour of the release, this latest document dump is more difficult for researchers and the public to sift through. Unlike past releases the 1,262 messages are not searchable by subject, sender or recipient.

That doesn't mean there won't be problems. Fox News reports that several messages were deemed classified, some secret and Clinton asked for designations to be changed, a possible crime.

The latest batch of emails released from Hillary Clinton's personal account from her tenure as secretary of state includes 66 messages deemed classified at some level, the State Department said early Friday.

In one email, Clinton even seemed to coach a top adviser on how to send secure information outside secure channels.

All but one of the 66 messages have been labeled "confidential", the lowest level of classification. The remaining email has been labeled as "secret." The total number of classified emails found on Clinton's personal server has risen to 1,340 with the latest release. Seven of those emails have been labeled "secret."

The State Department claims that none of the emails now marked classified were marked that way when originally sent, but at one point it looks like Clinton tried to change designations of material.

However, one email thread from June 2011 appears to include Clinton telling her top adviser Jake Sullivan to send secure information through insecure means.

In response to Clinton's request for a set of since-redacted talking points, Sullivan writes, "They say they've had issues sending secure fax. They're working on it." Clinton responds "If they can't, turn into nonpaper [with] no identifying heading and send nonsecure."  

Some analysts suggest that by ordering such a classification change to be made, Ms. Clinton may have committed a felony.
