Lawmaker Says He’s ‘Never Read Anything That’s More Sensitive’ Than Information In Hillary’s ‘Top Secret’ Emails
A member of the House Intelligence Committee said Wednesday that he has “never read anything that’s more sensitive” than the contents of the “Top Secret” Hillary Clinton emails identified by the State Department last week.
Utah Rep. Chris Stewart also said during an interview with Fox New’s “America’s Newsroom” that there are “actually more” than 22 “Top Secret emails,” which is the number reported by the State Department. In a separate interview with the Washington Examiner, Stewart said that another seven emails are being withheld in full because of their sensitive nature.
“I have never read anything that’s more sensitive than what these emails contain,” Stewart told Fox. “They do reveal classified methods, they do reveal classified sources, and they do reveal human assets.”
“I can’t imagine how anyone could be familiar with these emails, whether they’re sending them or receiving them, and not realize that they’re highly classified,” the Republican continued. More
State Department spokesman John Kirby issued a statement after publication of this article pertaining to Stewart’s claim that seven additional Clinton emails would be upgraded to “Top Secret.”
“We are not aware of any additional documents that will be upgraded to Top Secret. If, in the course of our FOIA review process, it is determined that additional information should be classified as Top Secret we will do so,” he said.
