WASHINGTON (AP) – The Obama administration is confirming for the first time that Hillary Clinton’s unsecured home server contained some closely guarded secrets, including material requiring one of the highest levels of classification.
The revelation comes just three days before the Iowa presidential nominating caucuses in which Clinton is a candidate.
The State Department will release more emails from Clinton’s time as secretary of state later Friday.
But The Associated Press has learned that 7 email chains are being withheld in full for containing “top secret” material.
Department officials wouldn’t describe the substance of the emails, or say if Clinton had sent any herself.
Spokesman John Kirby tells the AP that no judgment on past classification was made. But the department is looking into that, too.
