The democratic presidential contender allegedly sent classified material

Washington: Democratic 2016 presidential contender Hillary Clinton ran into a new political storm over the use of a private server for sending official emails with reports suggesting that some emailed material contained classified information.

The inspector general for the intelligence community had informed US Congress that some material emailed from the former secretary of state's private server contained classified information, but it was not identified that way.

The IG reviewed a “limited sampling” of her emails and among those 40 reviewed found that “four contained classified (intelligence community) information”, IG Charles McCullough was quoted as saying in a letter to Congress.

The four emails in question “were classified when they were sent and are classified now,” said spokeswoman Andrea Williams.
