More Recovered Clinton Emails Contain Classified Information

Judicial Watch says at least three newly obtained emails, not previously turned over by Clinton, contain state secrets

Three new emails seeming to prove that Hillary Clinton and top aide Huma Abedin sent classified information over Clinton’s non-secured email system were uncovered today, according to conservative legal watchdog Judicial Watch.

Three of the Clinton-Abedin email exchanges contained material “classified to protect national security,” according to Judicial Watch, in a statement released on Monday.

Sugar magnate and Clinton Foundation donor Alfonso Fanjul wanted special access to Hillary Clinton. He got access, at least, to Clinton’s government scheduler.

The emails were obtained from the State Department as part of a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) suit.

Also included in the newly obtained documents is an instance of the State Department doing special favors for a Florida sugar magnate and Clinton Foundation donor, Judicial Watch claimed.

The conservative-leaning watchdog says it has unearthed 238 emails in total not previously turned over to the public by Clinton, who was secretary of state from 2009 to 2013.

About 55,000 pages of emails were turned over to the State Department from Clinton’s private email server. Clinton was initially cleared by the FBI on July 5 for running potentially classified emails through a private server in her Chappaqua, New York, house.

But on Friday, newly discovered emails on a laptop owned by Abedin and her estranged husband, ex-Congressman Anthony Weiner, led the FBI to admit to Congress that it has reopened its investigation.

One email came from Democratic operative Sidney Blumenthal, who discussed a speech in Northern Ireland. Parts of the Oct. 11, 2009, email were redacted.

An Oct. 25, 2009, email to aide Jake Sullivan, with the subject line referring to Honduras, was also redacted.

Clinton has often said she did not receive or send classified emails.

The emails also show a potentially unethical connection between Clinton Foundation donors and the secretary of state’s office. The foundation is a Clinton family charity.

But many of the foundation’s donors were usually foreign governments or businessmen seeking favors from the secretary of state. The emails show Hillary Clinton was ready to receive them.

An Oct. 13, 2009, email included an exchange between Abedin, Clinton personal assistant Lauren Jiloty, and Iris Anaya, the assistant to sugar magnate and Clinton Foundation donor Alfonso Fanjul.

Fanjul reportedly wanted special access to Clinton, according to Judicial Watch. He got access — to Clinton’s government scheduler, at least.

Anaya emailed Abedin seeking to arrange a meeting between Fanjul, the CEO of Florida Crystals, and Clinton. Jiloty responded the next day, asking that Anaya talk with Clinton scheduler Lona Valmoro about “setting up a meeting.”

Fanjul donated more than $100,000 to the Clinton Foundation, according to Judicial Watch.
