When it comes to the news regarding Hillary’s emails, there doesn’t seem to be a light at the end of the tunnel for her. A recent court order required the State Department to release enough of Clinton’s emails each month so that all would be made public by January 29th, 2016. This is just the beginning, and already the results aren’t pretty.

According to the State Department, 150 of Hillary’s emails that she had (already illegally) sent using a personal account contained classified information. To quote in more detail from ABC News:

Clinton has long maintained that while she was serving as secretary of state, she never handled any emails on her private server that were marked classified. State Department officials have also noted that the emails were not classified at the time they were sent, but the number of emails that were later deemed classified demonstrates that whether or not they were marked classified, the emails were sensitive in nature.

So Clinton’s defense that they weren’t classified at the time may be technically true, but she was aware that she was working with highly sensitive information and apparently didn’t have much of a problem sending it through email (what could possibly go wrong?).
