Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton looks on as she speaks during a town hall meeting in Las Vegas, NevadaBy Jonathan Allen NEW YORK (Reuters) – For months, the U.S. State Department has stood behind its former boss Hillary Clinton as she has repeatedly said she did not send or receive classified information on her unsecured, private email account, a practice the government forbids. “If a foreign minister just told the secretary of state something in confidence, by U.S. rules that is classified at the moment it’s in U.S. channels and U.S. possession,” he said in a telephone interview, adding that for the State Department to say otherwise was “blowing smoke.” Reuters’ findings may add to questions that Clinton has been facing over her adherence to rules concerning sensitive government information.
