Herridge: Top Senators Not Allowed Access to Classified Info in Hillary's Emails
Fox News chief intelligence correspondent Catherine Herridge updated us on Happening Now following Hillary Clinton's dismissal of new reports on information contained in her private emails.
Earlier this week, Herridge reported exclusively that several dozen emails on Clinton’s personal server were even more sensitive than those with the “top secret” classification.
Some of Clinton's emails were said to contain intelligence from the U.S. Special Access Programs, known as SAP.
Herridge explained today that SAP intelligence is considered so top-secret that two top lawmakers were not allowed access.
She said that in order to read these emails, Senators Bob Corker and Ben Cardin - the two top members of the Foreign Relations Committee - would need even higher security clearances.
The intelligence is "highly restricted to protect sources and methods," Herridge said, adding that those who review it need to sign additional non-disclosure agreements even if they already have the highest level of clearance.
Meantime, Clinton stated in an NPR interview that the new "leak" is meant to hurt her politically.
"Nothing that this says changes the fact that I never sent or received material marked classified," she said.
Watch the full report above.
