I’m pretty sure this has already been widely reported, but today Dianne Feinstein confirmed what we know about those four emails on Hillary Clinton’s server that contain sensitive information:

“None of the emails alleged to contain classified information were written by Secretary Clinton,” Mrs. Feinstein said in a statement. “The questions are whether she received emails with classified information in them, and if so, whether information in those emails should have been classified in the first place. Those questions have yet to be answered.”

Mrs. Feinstein also said, “None of the emails alleged to contain classified information include any markings that indicate classified content.”

Should they have been classified at the time? Who knows. That’s a spat between State and the CIA, and a fairly uninteresting one. For now, anyway, our national security seems to have survived the Clinton era at the State Department unscathed.

Fact:

In-depth journalism that investigates the powerful takes real money and is so damn important right now.But it doesn’t take a Mother Jones investigation to know that billionaires and corporations will never fund the type of reporting (like they do politicians) we do that exists to help bring about change. Instead, our mission-driven journalism is made possible by people power, and has been for 46 years now since our founding as a non-profit.

In “TITLE TK” Monica Bauerlein writes about the perilous moment we’re in, and why it’s so important that we raise $325,000 by the time November’s midterms are decided so we can be ready to throw everything we have at the big issues facing the nation no matter what happens.
