WASHINGTON (AP) – FBI documents show a senior State Department staffer sought to change the classification level of an email from Hillary Clinton’s private server.
The FBI on Monday released 100 more pages from its now-closed investigation into whether the Democratic presidential nominee mishandled sensitive government information.
According to the notes, in 2015, State Department Under Secretary for Management Patrick F. Kennedy contacted an FBI official whose name was redacted.
Kennedy asked that the FBI’s classification level on an email related to the 2012 attacks on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, be changed. Kennedy said that would ensure the document would be archived, “never to be seen again.”
The FBI did not change the classification level. The Associated Press reported about the secret Benghazi-related email in May 2015.
