The U.S. intelligence community has retreated from claims that two emails in Hillary Clinton’s private account contained top-secret information, a source familiar with the situation told POLITICO.
After a review, intelligence agencies concluded that the two emails did not include highly classified intelligence secrets, the source said. Concerns about the emails' classification helped trigger an ongoing FBI inquiry into Clinton's private email setup.
Intelligence Community Inspector General I. Charles McCullough III made the claim that two of the emails contained top-secret information; the State Department publicly stated its disagreement and asked Director of National Intelligence James Clapper’s office to referee the dispute. Now, that disagreement has been resolved in State’s favor, said the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
Of course officially Clapper's office has stated that the investigation is not yet complete, but if this Politico source is correct this removes one of the GOP's main lines of attack.
Which means that there is even less ammunition in the old political Gatling gun for the eventual Republican nominee to use against Hillary in the general election.
Gee, what WILL they misinterpret, exaggerate, or manufacture next to take her down?
