So Hillary DID Include Sensitive U.S. Intel in Secret Emails

Contrary to her campaign staff saying otherwise, the redactions in her released e-mails [2] during her time as Secretary of State beg to differ:

In March 2009, shortly after Clinton took office as secretary of state, her top aide Philippe Reines sent an email [3] to her personal address that contained information subsequently redacted pursuant to the National Security Act of 1947.

That law includes language that exempts information from public disclosure that might reveal sensitive information such as confidential intelligence community sources and the “operational files” of U.S. intelligence agencies, which detail their internal structures or operations.
