U.S. to withhold some Clinton emails with top secret information

U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton speaks during a campaign stop at Grand View University in Des MoinesBy Arshad Mohammed and Jonathan Allen WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. State Department conceded for the first time on Friday that intelligence officials were correct to say that at least 22 emails sent through Hillary Clinton’s private server contain some of the government’s most sensitive secrets. The seven email chains from Clinton’s time as secretary of state, amounting to 22 separate messages, will be withheld from the public as a result because the information in them is classified at the highest level as “top secret,” State Department spokesman John Kirby said. The announcement came three days before the Iowa caucuses, when the first votes are cast for the presidential nominations and where Clinton is locked in a tight race with Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders to become the Democratic nominee for the November election.
