POLITICO: Key Clinton emails did not contain highly classified secrets, inquiry findsNone of Hillary’s opponents are going to be rushing to correct the record about this, which is why it’s so important for members of The Briefing like you to get the word out:
The U.S. intelligence community has retreated from claims that two emails in Hillary Clinton’s private account contained top secret information, a source familiar with the situation told POLITICO.
The determination came from Director of National Intelligence James Clapper’s office and concluded that the two emails did not include highly classified intelligence secrets. Concerns about the emails' classification helped trigger an on-going FBI inquiry into Clinton's private email set-up.
"The initial determination was based on a flawed process," the source said.
"There was an intelligence product people thought [one of the emails] was based on, but that actually postdated the email in question."
A top expert in classification procedures called the development "an astonishing turn of events."
Thanks so much. Happy Friday!
