New documents show that “foreign actors” were able to gain access to some of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails, including one which was identified as “secret.”
The revelations are included in a memo from two GOP-led House committees, as well as an internal FBI email obtained by Fox News.
During a news conference in March 2015, Clinton stated categorically, “I did not email any classified material to anyone on my email. There is no classified material.”
“It was on property guarded by the Secret Service, and there were no security breaches,” she added.
A memo prepared by the House Judiciary and Oversight committees states otherwise.
“Documents provided to the Committees show foreign actors obtained access to some of Mrs. Clinton’s emails — including at least one email classified ‘Secret,'” the memo reads.
Hillary Clinton, March 10, 2015: “I did not email any classified material to anyone…There were no security breaches.”

Fox News also obtained an email sent in May 2016 by FBI agent Peter Strzok who played a role in the Clinton email investigation. (RELATED: FBI Agent Peter Strzok Sent Message Vowing to Stop Trump Presidency).
The email listed a series of “observations” which included a statement that “we know foreign actors obtained access” to some emails, including at least one “secret” message “via compromises of the private email accounts” of Clinton staffers.
So it’s confirmed that foreign actors accessed classified email on Hillary Clinton’s illegal private email server…
The current DOJ won’t do anything about it…

You can read the entire email here:
In his original draft statement, then-FBI Director James Comey indicated that a combination of evidence made it “reasonably likely that hostile actors gained access to Secretary Clinton’s private email account.”
Comey would later make edits to the original statement that watered it down. The phrase “reasonably likely” was replaced by “possible.” (RELATED: Comey Draft Indicates It Was ‘Reasonably Likely’ Hillary’s Server Was Hacked).
More changes in Comey’s letter about Hillary’s emails:
The phrase “… it’s reasonably likely” that Clinton’s server was hacked.
Was changed to “it’s possible” the server was hacked in public statement.https://t.co/RK9wPGhMVl

The committee memo does not identify who accessed Clinton’s email, but noted that the secret information within if disclosed, could “reasonably be expected to cause serious damage to the national security.”
The fact that Comey changed his statement and the conclusions that are drawn within, knowing months earlier that foreign actors had accessed secret information, seems to indicate a clearly defined political bias.
