Clinton aides promised to protect ‘marked and unmarked’ classified info

The Republican National Committee (RNC) on Thursday released classified nondisclosure agreements signed by a pair of Hillary Clinton’s State Department aides in which they promised to protect classified information.
The release of the documents from Jacob Sullivan and Bryan Pagliano comes hours before Clinton is set to deliver a major national security address […]
“Hillary Clinton endangered our national security and created a culture where top staffers went rogue, silenced career officials and hid a reckless email scheme that placed her political ambitions above all else,” RNC Chairman Reince Priebus said in a statement. “These records show that like Clinton, her closest aides did not meet their responsibilities to protect classified information regardless of whether it was marked.”
The agreements show that Sullivan — a top adviser who now works on Clinton’s presidential campaign — and Pagliano — the IT aide believed to have set up and maintained Clinton’s controversial private server — swore to protect “marked or unmarked classified information, including email communications.”
Sullivan sent more than 800 emails that now include information marked as classified, according to the State Department. None of those emails were marked as classified at the time they were sent.
Pagliano, meanwhile, is believed to have been the point man responsible for the server’s upkeep and functioning throughout Clinton’s time as secretary of State. On Wednesday, his lawyers disclosed that he would refuse to answer questions as part of an ongoing lawsuit connected to Clinton’s email setup. (Read More)
