“Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton deleted an email from 2009 that shows she forwarded classified information to her daughter, Chelsea.
The State Department released the email on Friday, as it is one of thousands that were recovered by the FBI from Clinton’s private email server.
The email chain from December 20, 2009 titled ‘Update,’ began with a message from Michael Froman, who served as deputy national security adviser for international economic affairs and as a deputy assistant to President Obama.
It was then sent to Clinton’s foreign policy adviser at the State Department, Jake Sullivan, along with several aides to the president.
Sullivan then sent it to Clinton who forwarded it to her daughter, who used the pseudonym ‘Diane Reynolds’.
Since it contains classified ‘confidential’ information, the entire text in the body portion of the email has been redacted.
The email was labeled a ‘near duplicate’ by the State Department who indicated it was similar for the most part to others the agency has released from the thousands of emails she turned over in December 2014.
The former first lady did not delete other responses she made to others who were on the email thread from that ‘Update’ email chain. (Read more: The Daily Mail, 11/04/2016)
