    A US intelligence review confirmed that the emails Hillary Clinton had sent and received on her personal account while being US Secretary of State contained top secret information, media reported.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — In March 2015, Clinton came under close scrutiny for using her personal email account for official purposes while serving as US Secretary of State from 2009 to 2013.

    In August, the US intelligence community inspector general reported that at least two of the Clinton emails reviewed by his office contained material classified as Top Secret, the highest classification, which cannot be sent to non-secure accounts. The Clinton presidential campaign disagreed with the initial review findings.

    The New York Times reported on Monday, citing intelligence sources, that the second review confirmed that the two emails contained top secret information, supporting the findings of the inspector general.

    In May, a US District Court judge ordered the State Department to made public all of the some 55,000 emails that were retained on Clinton's server by the middle of January 2016.
