Intelligence review finds ‘several dozen’ classified emails
Hillary Clinton’s personal server held emails containing intelligence from the government’s most secret programs, according to a letter sent by the inspector general of the intelligence community to senior lawmakers.
Fox News obtained the letter from I. Charles McCullough III, sent January 14, laying out conclusions of a recent review by multiple intelligence agencies which identified “several dozen” additional emails on Clinton’s server containing classified information. These classified emails include messages that contain intelligence from “special access programs” (SAP), which is more sensitive than information classified as “top secret.”
“To date, I have received two sworn declarations from one [intelligence community] element. These declarations cover several dozen emails containing classified information determined by the IC element to be at the confidential, secret, and top secret/sap levels,” the unclassified letter from McCullough read. “According to the declarant, these documents contain information derived from classified IC element sources.”
Access to SAP intelligence is restricted to an absolute minimum because of its high sensitivity. According to Executive Order 13526, which President Obama signed into law in December 2009, a special access program should only be established when “the vulnerability of, or threat to, specific information is exceptional” and “the normal criteria for determining eligibility for access applicable to information classified at the same level are not deemed sufficient to protect the information from unauthorized disclosure.”
