Hillary Clinton told FBI questioners numerous times that she did not receive the various guidance documents and training sessions from State Department officials that employees get to ensure they protect and preserve their official emails and computer documents.

She told the FBI that she did not get official guidance for using email in her job at the State Department.

That claim is a puzzle because her signature is attached to a 2009 State Department document testifying that she was trained on handling classified information. That contradiction was highlighted by The Weekly Standard.

Clinton said did not remember getting trained on protecting super-secret “Special Access Program” information, such as data from spy satellites.
