An email released by WikiLeaks on Thursday provides new insight into Hillary Clinton’s carelessness with sensitive information in her emails and shows she was warned by close confidants to be more cautious — even long after leaving the State Department.
WikiLeaks released a 2014 email conversation between Clinton and her current campaign Chairman John Podesta about the tactical situation in Iraq and elsewhere in the Middle East.
In what until today was the latest available email in the chain, Clinton stated that “there may be opportunities as the Iraqi piece improves.” She also asked Podesta if he had “any idea whose fighters attacked Islamist positions in Tripoli, Libya,” which was “worth analyzing for future purposes,” according to Clinton.
Podesta quickly recognized the conversation shouldn’t be happening on Gmail and Clinton’s “clintonemail” server. “Yes and interesting but not for this channel,” he warned.
