Collusion? Cooperation? A lot of unknowns are being made public surrounding the State Department-Hillary Clinton e-mail controversy:
A series of letters sent back and forth between State Department officials and Hillary Clinton’s legal team last year sheds light on the agency’s scramble to recover classified documents that had been stored in unsecured environments.
The letters, made public Wednesday by conservative watchdog Judicial Watch, suggest the State Department was concerned about Clinton’s lawyers handling records that had been upgraded to “secret,” the second-highest level of classification in government.
Recovering now-classified emails that have been potentially touched by dozens of unqualified people posed problems for the State Department, especially since Clinton’s lawyers said they were unable to delete the sensitive records as requested because they faced preservation orders from the House Select Committee on Benghazi.
