A special review panel has confirmed that emails sent to Hillary Clinton through her private email server when she was secretary of state contained information that was “top secret” at the time they were sent.

According to The New York Times, intelligence sources say that the Central Intelligence Agency and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency agreed with a previous determination made by the Intelligence Community inspector general that Clinton received two emails — one in 2009 and the other in 2011 — with the highly sensitive information.
