6:25 pm
sharockman/ @ 5:20 ((she put words in the mouth of the fbi director saying he called her statements "truthful." he never said that and i think we need to be very clear about that)) clinton repeatedly said she did not have any classified information in her email. politifact wipe clinton forum @ 5:45 ((classified material has a header which says 'top-secret, secret, confidential.' nothing, and i will repeat this and this is verified in the report by the the emails sent or received by me had such a header)) clinton is correct that nothing in her emails had a header signifying its classification status. but the fbi found 81 email chains that contained information determined to be classified but none of the information was
