The number of Hillary Clinton emails flagged for potentially classified content has grown to more than 300, Fox News has learned — with the potential to grow even more as officials scramble to screen the documents.
The State Department revealed the updated count in a federal court filing, which pertained to Clinton emails sent to other agencies for review. An official familiar with the investigation confirmed to Fox News that, as referenced in that filing, the department has recommended 305 of Clinton’s emails be sent to various agencies for review to see whether they contain classified information.
The number could continue to rise as officials comb through more documents; the past three State Department releases have contained a total of 63 classified emails to date.
Clinton’s presidential campaign has insisted she never exchanged emails marked classified at the time while secretary of state. “She viewed classified materials in hard copy in her office or via other secure means while traveling, not on email,” campaign Communications Director Jennifer Palmieri said in an email to supporters last week.
