Oh Boy: Number of Emails With Classified Info on Clinton's Private Server Approaches 1000

When Democrat presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton was busted earlier this year by the New York Times for conducting not some, but all, of her official government business on a private email server during her time as Secretary of State, she said the following: 

Clinton's claims that there was no classified information sent or received on her private server have been repeatedly proven false. Over the past six months, we've seen hundreds of documents emerge with classified information, many with top secret information, from her personal email account. Now, Fox News is reporting at least 999 pieces of classified information have been found as the FBI continues their criminal investigation. 

The State Department’s latest release of Hillary Clinton documents brings the total number of Clinton emails known to contain classified material to nearly 1,000.

The department on Monday released its largest batch of emails yet, posting 7,800 pages of the former secretary of state’s communications.

The latest batch contains 328 emails deemed to have classified information. According to the State Department, that brings the total number with classified information to 999.

The emails in question were deemed classified before their release by the department – and the former secretary of state has said all along she never sent emails with material marked classified at the time.

But the large number of emails containing now-classified material further underscores how much sensitive information was crossing her private server, a situation her critics have described as a security risk.

As noted above, this once again emphasizes the carelessness Clinton used when handling important national security information during her time as Secretary of State. The big question everyone is waiting to be answered now is whether Clinton will be indicted. It's been four months since the FBI opened up their criminal probe of her server.
