Senate Intel Chairman Burr Statement on Former Secretary of State Clinton’s Email Use

WASHINGTON – Today, Senator Richard Burr (R-NC), Chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, made the following statement on the most recent in a long series of revelations about former Secretary Hillary Clinton’s management of classified information via her personal email server:

“These notes confirm, publicly, what we have known for some time: the emails contained classified information, and those sending the emails knew they contained classified information--they just refuse to take any responsibility for it, and instead blame others in the State Department.  The excuses never end, and no one is ever held responsible. Classified information should be handled with utmost care because the lives of those tasked with keeping America safe are at risk.”
