It’s been six months since Hillary Clinton’s controversial private email server was discovered, and her camp is still trying to handle the fallout.
On Wednesday, her campaign conceded that some emails hosted on the server contained material that was classified retroactively. Clinton has long said that none of her emails, either sent and received, contained information that was classified at the time they were sent.
A new Reuters report disputes that claim. The report found that the “Classified” stamps on a few publicly released emails show that they would have been automatically considered classified, even before they received that formal designation, in accordance with government regulations. In some of those emails, information exchanged between U.S. officials and their foreign counterparts in confidence would be “presumed” classified, according to the report.
