US State Dept. releases 7000 pages of Clinton emails – The Hindu
All the censored material in the latest group of emails is classified at the “confidential” level.
The State Department released roughly 7,000 pages of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s emails on Monday, including about 150 emails that have been censored because they contain information that is now deemed classified.
Department officials said the redacted information was classified in preparation for the public release of the emails and not identified as classified at the time Ms. Clinton sent or received the messages. All the censored material in the latest group of emails is classified at the “confidential” level, not at higher “top secret” or compartmentalised levels, they said.
“It’s somewhere around 150 that have been subsequently upgraded” in classification, State Department spokesman Mark Toner told reporters.
The release amounts to more pages of email than disclosed in the previous three months combined. Once public, it will mean roughly a quarter of all of the correspondence Ms. Clinton qualified as “work emails” has been published. Ms. Clinton provided the State Department some 30,000 pages of documents late last year, while deleting a similar amount from her server because she said they were personal in nature.
