Breitbart: EXCLUSIVE: Hillary Aides Talked Benghazi with Clinton Foundation Staff, Withheld Emails

Hillary Clinton’s top State Department aides turned to Clinton Foundation employees for political help in the immediate aftermath of the Benghazi terrorist attack, and Clinton withheld those emails from the House Benghazi Committee investigating her conduct.

Clinton currently faces federal investigation for allegedly allowing people without a security clearance to access classified information, in violation of the Espionage Act. Newly-discovered emails, considered classified by the State Department, were going to Clinton Foundation staffers who did not have a security clearance to view classified information.

Breitbart News obtained a “Vaughn list” of thirteen email exchanges involving top Clinton State Department aide Cheryl Mills. A “Vaughn List” is a list of emails that are being withheld and kept confidential, even though they correspond to someone’s Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request. The State Department compiled the “Vaughn List” for the group Citizens United, which filed a FOIA for all relevant communications between Mills and Clinton Foundation staffers. The emails are being withheld under Exemptions 5 and 6, for “privileged information” and “personal privacy.”
