(CNN)The State Department announced Friday that it will not release 22 emails from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton because they contain "top secret" information, the highest level of government classification.
'Over-classification run amok'
More emails released
- Clinton seeking to confirm with her team that a piece of information, which top aide Jake Sullivan described as proof the new Center for Strategic Counterterrorism Communications was doing its job, was "not classified or otherwise inappropriate" and fit to share with a reporter;
- Evidence that Clinton actively lobbied on behalf of the Affordable Care Act -- at one point, she emailed Miguel Rodriguez, then the director of the White House Office of Legislative Affairs, to inform him she'd spoken and received a "yes" from then-Arkansas Rep. Marion Berry.
- John Podesta, now the chairman of Clinton's campaign, emailing aide Cheryl Mills to ask if she had a personal email to which he could send a message hours ahead of a meeting with then-chief of staff Rahm Emanuel.
- Clinton asking, "So, can someone sign just my first name?" when presented with a farewell letter (written by Huma Abedin) to former Sen. George Mitchell as he prepared to leave after two years as the top U.S. envoy to the Israelis and Palestinians.
