Beyond ‘Top Secret.’ Clinton Emails Contained Most Secretive and Highly Classified Intel

hillary-clintonFox News reports that the emails stored on Hillary Clinton‘s so-called “homebrew” server contained intelligence that was gathered from a “Special Access Program” (SAP), indicating “a level of classification beyond even ‘top secret.'”

The revelation comes from an unclassified Jan. 14 letter, which Fox News exclusively obtained, sent from Intelligence Community Inspector General I. Charles McCullough III to lawmakers with oversight over intelligence agencies and the State Department.

2016 01 14 – ICIG Response Letter

According to the report,

[the letter] laid out the findings of a recent comprehensive review by intelligence agencies that identified “several dozen” additional classified emails — including specific intelligence known as “special access programs” (SAP).

That indicates a level of classification beyond even “top secret,” the label previously given to two emails found on her server, and brings even more scrutiny to the presidential candidate’s handling of the government’s closely held secrets.

Fox News quotes one senior lawmaker as saying SAP material is “the most sensitive of the sensitive,” and noting that, under the Espionage Act, the finding contained in the Jan. 14 letter could be considered “gross negligence” in the handling of sensitive information.
