Newly recovered emails from Hillary Clinton’s private server appear to show Clinton discussed classified intelligence with world leaders before she was sworn in as secretary of state.
Judicial Watch released the emails this week, which appear to contradict Clinton’s 2015 testimony when she claimed she had already given all of her classified emails to the State Department.
The documents show Clinton exchanged several emails with then-U.K. Prime Minister Tony Blair about Israeli foreign policy concerns days before she was sworn-in. She even advised him to continue emailing her through her blackberry server.
There was also discussion about setting up a private, off the record back channel with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
“The case against Hillary Clinton is really quite simple,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “She created and took government documents that she didn’t have a right to take, so she stole government documents.”
Separately, the emails show Clinton aided in an application process to help one of her daughter’s friends get a job at the State Department. It also revealed there was close close coordination between the department and the Clinton Foundation.
The documents also show Hillary privately met with a close confidant of Russian President Vladimir Putin before the official was elected as the prime minister of Georgia.
