The State Department’s Office of Inspector General made the finding in a routine report on the Tokyo embassy as the agency is under scrutiny for Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email address and server when she was secretary of state. “Senior embassy staff, including the ambassador, used personal email accounts to send and receive messages containing official business,” the report said, saying it found “instances when emails labeled ‘sensitive but unclassified'” were sent and received on private email addresses.
