Report: Number Of Flagged Hillary Clinton Emails Rises To 60

According to reports, the State Department has come across more than 60 of Hillary Clinton’s emails that were flagged for including classified data.

The State Department identified the 60 private messages as part of their ongoing review of Clinton’s emails, after it was revealed that the former Secretary of State used the same email address to send both personal and government-related emails, officials told The Washington Times.

Nearly all the flagged emails reportedly contained classified secrets at the lowest level of confidentiality, and one contained information at the intermediate level of “secret.”

The 60 identified emails do not, however, include two that were recently identified by Intelligence Community Inspector General I. Charles McCullough as containing “top secret” information.

The State Department is currently working through roughly 30,000 emails from Clinton’s time as Secretary of Sate.

While at the Iowa State Fair over the weekend, Clinton — the frontrunner for the Democratic nomination for president in 2016 — maintained that she never exchanged classified using the account, according to The Hill.
