The U.S. intelligence community is bracing for the possibility that former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clintons private email account contains hundreds of revelations of classified information from spy agencies and is taking steps to contain any damage to national security, according to documents and interviews Thursday.
The top lawmakers on the House and Senate intelligence committee have been notified in recent days that the extent of classified information on Mrs. Clintons private email server was likely far more extensive than the four emails publicly acknowledged last week as containing some sensitive spy agency secrets.
A U.S. official directly familiar with the notification, who spoke only on the condition of anonymity, said the notification of possibly hundreds of additional emails with classified secrets came from the State Department Freedom of Information Act office to the Office of Inspector General for the Director of National Intelligence.
The inspector general, the chief oversight watchdog for the entire U.S. intelligence community, subsequently sent a letter to the Republican chairmen and ranking Democrats of the Senate and House intelligence committees, the official said.
We were informed by State FOIA officials that there are potentially hundreds of classified emails within the 30,000 provided for former Secretary Clinton, DNI Inspector General I. Charles McCullough III late last week wrote Sen. Richard Burr, North Carolina Republican; Sen. Dianne Feinstein, California Democrat; Rep. Devin Nunes, California Republican; and Rep. Adam B. Schiff, California Democrat.
We note that none of the emails we reviewed had classification or dissemination markings but some included IC-derived classified information and should have been handled as classified, appropriately marked and transmitted via a secure server, Mr. McCullough wrote the four lawmakers.

“What difference, at this point, does it make? Make me President dammit!”
Remind us of what why Petraeus was convicted?
The arrogant hag opened the barn door years ago and the horses are LONG gone
I am grateful some days that I am no longer in the intelligence community - the amount of Maalox and Tagament I would be consuming by now...
How much more overwhelming evidence does it take to get this lying, murdering, traitrous, leftist (redundant as it is) political skank indicted for giving aid and comfort to the enemy?!?
NOTE TO NYT EDITORS RE: clarification of your Clinton Email Coverage (reprinted below)
Did you report to your readers that a high government official (particularly the Secy of State) to utilize day to day a non government computer for communications in the performance of their job is in violation of security laws in dozens of ways?
Did you factor into your report that emails emanating from Hillary's private server contained classified ntl security data?
Did you bother to determine that the US govt tech system is really fussy----particularly about emails from the US State Dept?
Did you determine that a govt official (particularly the Secy of State) cannot simply buy a brand new computer with licenses and programs and expect to have it certified?
Did you report that US govt officials are required to have a government-purchased computer, set up by the govt, utilizing a CACC card cleared technician?
Did you advise your readers that even the calendar of the Secy of State is considered classified information?
Last but not least---would you have been this accommodating if the subject of your story was a Republican?

NY TIMES CLARIFICATION REPRINT: The Times reported online Thursday night (and in some print editions Friday) that the State Department IG ---and US intelligence agencies had sent a referral to the Justice Department requesting a criminal investigation into whether Mrs. Clinton mishandled sensitive government information on the email account. That article was based on multiple high-level government sources.
Shortly after the article was published online, however, aides to Mrs. Clinton contacted one reporter to dispute the account. After consultation between editors and reporters, the first paragraph was edited to say the investigation was requested into whether sensitive government information was mishandled, rather than into whether Mrs. Clinton herself mishandled information. That type of substantive change should have been noted immediately for readers; instead, a correction was not appended to the article until hours later.
On Friday, another question arose whether the investigation being sought was a criminal inquiry. As other news organizations followed up on The Timess report, the Justice Department confirmed to them that a criminal investigation had been requested. Officials also gave that description again to Times reporters who were rechecking their initial story. But later in the day, the Justice Department and the inspectors general said that the request was not a criminal referral but rather a security referral, meant to alert the F.B.I. about a potential mishandling of classified information. It was not clear how the discrepancy arose.
As much as I despise HC, I fear this is an Obama orchestrated purge to immobilize and remove his enemies in the hopes that Amercians are stupid enough to elect a radical who will perpetuate Obama’s legacy, rather than creating an equally radical legacy of her own.
This 75 year old wrinkled villain needs to be locked up!
Did the Clinton Foundation do anything with all that classified information?
Hillary Clinton. Special Agent John Smith FBI, you are under arrest.
They’re not secrets any more.
You are speaking against Your Lord And Savior, the Obama, the Messiah, The Won.
He could eat a live fetus on the set of “Ellen”, and be praised by the media for his choice of solverware and a halal menu.
Et tu Pres Stompy Foot? The long knives are coming out from Val Jar.
So let’s just start by indicting Hillery on every count possible and setting bail at a billion dollars she has to pay personally.
The leaks are a certainty. As soon as the first clintonemail.com message reached a Russian, Chinese, Iranian, liberal, or other anti-American recipient, they started hacking her account. It would have been compromised by multiple sources almost immediately, and I suspect it stayed compromised for the entire time she used that unsecured server.
Bullshit. Nobody from the Obama admin forced Hillary to put that server in her basement.
Bubba to Hill when she gets her one phone call: “Hillary who? Must be a bad connection. I don’t know anyone named Hillary”.
If anyone of us had done this, we’d be in jail by now. Apparently laws are only for the schmucks, not them.
