WASHINGTON, D.C. – Thousands of Clinton supporters – many of whom believed they were receiving updates on Saturday’s democratic primaries – were shocked to discover an email purportedly sent from the former secretary of state on Sunday that included an attached .zip file containing classified material.
The attached file consisted of several documents, one of which appeared to have been photocopied and was clearly marked TOP SECRET//HCS-COMINT-GAMMA//NOFORN, meaning it contained sensitive compartmentalized information gathered from human intelligence sources and should not – under any circumstances – be shared with foreign governments. The contents of the classified document included the names and locations of nearly five hundred active CIA assets in North Africa.
“That’s very peculiar, I have no idea how that wound up in there,” Karen Harris, a senior communications adviser and spokesperson for the Clinton campaign, told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on Sunday. Ms. Harris said it’s extremely uncommon for Clinton to pen the emails herself. “She has a hard enough time keeping track of her passwords,” Harris quipped.
Meanwhile, Khalifa al-Bouri, a Libyan citizen who appeared on the list of active CIA assets working in the capital city of Tripoli, told a journalist affiliated with Real News Right Now that he doesn’t know any Americans and he’s never even spoken to one in his life. “I’m sorry, I don’t know what you’re talking about, please leave me alone,” Khalifa said as he hurriedly loaded several suitcases into the backseat of his car, an early model Mercedes-Benz.
The sixty-one year-old Khalifa, whose real name is Dr. Mustafa Maziq, has served as the chief of surgery at Tripoli Central Hospital since 2004, according to a U.S. intelligence official who spoke to Real News Right Now on condition of anonymity. “Mr. Maziq has provided us with a substantial amount of intel on Islamic State activity in Libya,” the official confirmed.
Former secretary of state and current Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton has been under investigation by the FBI over allegations that she used her family’s private email server to send official communications while at the State Department.
