Judicial Watch: New Batch of Emails Proves Hillary Clinton Misled

clntn-abdnDemocratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has said she turned over all her work-related emails from her private server to the state department, declaring under penalty of perjury that she “directed that all my emails on clintonemail.com in my custody that were or are potentially federal records be provided to the Department of State, and on information and belief, this has been done.” But Judicial Watch says a new batch of emails prove otherwise.

The legal watchdog group is embroiled in litigation requesting the work-related emails Clinton sent and received from her personal email account and private server while Secretary of State. Yesterday, the organization released one batch of 103 pages and a second batch of 138 pages that a federal court ordered the state department to release.

Because of the risk to national security if classified material is hacked, the federal government prohibits classified emails from being routed through, and stored on, a poorly secured private server and email account such as Hillary uses. Clinton’s defense has been that she did not know the emails were considered classified at the time. But hundreds, if not thousands, of her emails have since been determined to be classified based on long-standing criteria that Clinton, as Secretary of State, presumably could be expected to have known about.
