Press Releases

Washington—Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) today released the following statement on Secretary Hillary Clinton’s emails:

“The latest allegations that Secretary Clinton’s emails include classified information lack the same key information as previous reports.

“First, the 22 emails the State Department has labeled classified are part of seven separate back-and-forth email chains, and none of those email chains originated with Secretary Clinton.

“It has never made sense to me that Secretary Clinton can be held responsible for email exchanges that originated with someone else.

“And second, none of the emails sent to Secretary Clinton have the mandatory markings that are required when classified information is transmitted.

“The only reason to hold Secretary Clinton responsible for emails that didn’t originate with her is for political points, and that’s what we’ve seen over the past several months.

“I expect the final emails in this voluntary disclosure process to be released by the end of next month, at which point I believe we’ll see that none of the information in question originated with Secretary Clinton or was marked classified.”
