Hillary: IG’s Ruling ‘Does Not Change’ Whether I Sent or Received Classified Info

Democratic presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that the intelligence community inspector general’s determination that two of her emails contained top secret information, “does not change the fact that I did not send, or receive, any information that was marked classified at the time” during an interview on ABC’s “World News Tonight.”

Hillary was asked, “The intelligence community’s inspector general telling ABC today, that after reviewing those emails, that two of them carry the classification of top secret, that both emails were classified when they were created, and remain classified now. One was about drones. One was about North Korea’s nuclear program. And I’m curious, does this mean classified information passed through your private server?”

She responded, “Well, there is still, as you know, a dispute. The State Department disputes that. I understand why different agencies have different views, and I respect that. It does not change the fact that I did not send, or receive, any information that was marked classified at the time.”

Hillary was then asked, “What changed in them so significantly that you wouldn’t have seen red flags, even just a couple of years ago as secretary of state, that you of all people would have known?”

She answered, “One, sometimes events do proceed in a way, that, maybe there’s a case being brought against somebody, maybe even a terrorist, and all of a sudden everything is classified.”

Anchor David Muir then cut in to ask, “But North Korea’s nuclear program, wouldn’t that be classified?”

Hillary responded, “There’s a lot of public information about their nuclear program. I don’t know the specifics about the one that they are claiming is classified.”
