Hillary Clinton’s claim that there was nothing classified on her email server was clearly not true. This news is pretty serious trouble for the Democrat front-runner.
From the Daily Mail:
BREAKING: State Department says 150 more Hillary Clinton emails have been ‘upgraded’ to classified status in the release scheduled for tonight
The State Department said Monday afternoon that when it releases the latest tranche of Hillary Clinton’s emails tonight, ‘somewhere around 150’ of them will have been ‘upgraded to classified’ status.
Agency spokesman Mark Toner briefed reporters in advance of the periodic release, which was rescheduled twice during the day and is now expected at 9:00 p.m. EDT.
Under intense questioning, Toner conceded that the review of about 7,000 pages of emails in the latest batch has uncovered the 150 communications ‘that have been subsequently upgraded classified.’
He emphasized that ‘the information we’ve upgraded was not marked classified at the time the emails were sent.’ But Toner seemed to hedge his bets against future decision-making inside the U.S. Intelligence Community.
‘That’s our estimation right now,’ said Toner.

Could Hillary Clinton actually be prosecuted?
