The State Department has deemed that 22 of Hillary Clinton’s emails are "too damaging" to national security to release under any circumstances
Fox News chief intelligence correspondent Catherine Herridge now reports this morning that the emails contain “operational intelligence” and their presence on the unsecure, personal email system jeopardized “sources, methods and lives."

Judge Andrew Napolitano discussed the new developments with Stuart Varney this morning, explaining that the latest report reveals a new twist in the scandal.
He said that up until now, the State Department has been agreeing with Clinton's repeated assertions that she never sent or received emails "marked classified."
The State Department is now disagreeing with the former secretary of state, he said.
"They're saying, 'We, the State Department, found 22 top-secret emails, highest category,'" said Napolitano.
"Not only were they top-secret, they were operational. ... They were characterizing and they were about intelligence projects that were going on as the emails were being written," he pointed out.
Clinton has recently claimed that the email scandal is similar to Benghazi, with Republicans trying to damage her politically.
But Napolitano said that there was never a team of 100 FBI agents looking into Clinton's actions with respect to Benghazi, as they are doing with her private email server.
"She has more to worry about from the FBI than she does from Bernie Sanders," he concluded.
Watch the judge's analysis.
