Clinton told a veterans group that U.S. leadership is vital to the world and, drawing a contrast with Republican Donald Trump, said that means the White House is no place for a leader who insults allies or threatens to shrink from that role.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton not only sent classified information on her private email server during her tenure but also after she left the State Department. The New York Post reported on Wednesday, Aug. 31, 2016, that Clinton sent a classified email over four months after leaving her post. The Republican National Committee acquired the email through a Freedom of Information Act request.

According to the Post, the Democratic nominee sent the email on May 28, 2013, and it was about the “123 Deal.” The deal signed in 2009 was between the United Arab Emirates and the U.S. and dealt with nuclear energy production.

Clinton sent the email from the same email account and private server she used while Secretary of State. Clinton sent the email to “Deputy Secretary of State William Burns, diplomat Jeffrey Feltman, policy aide Jake Sullivan, diplomat Kurt Campbell, State Department chief of staff Cheryl Mills and top aide Huma Abedin.”

The Post said the email is heavily redacted because it contains classified “information regarding foreign governors” and “foreign relations or foreign activities of the United States, including confidential sources.” The email is set to be declassified on May 28, 2033.
