US State Department Won't Release Clinton Emails It Calls 'Top Secret'

The Associated Press reports seven email chains on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's home server are being withheld because they contain "top secret" information.

Officials didn't tell AP who sent these emails, wouldn't describe the substance and didn't disclose whether any of the information was classified at the time the emails were sent.

The report comes as the State Department is set to release its next batch of email's from Clinton's time as secretary.

Clinton, now a Democratic presidential nominee, has said she never sent or received then-classified information on her personal email account.

The State Department also says it will withhold 7 Hillary Clinton email chains; claiming the documents were not marked classified at the time they were sent.

A spokesman with the Clinton Presidential Campaign says State Department's decision is 'overclassification', and wants them released.
