It has now become very clear that some of the emails Hillary Clinton sent and/or received on her private server are of the type that are classified from the beginning:
But the details included in those “Classified” stamps — which include a string of dates, letters and numbers describing the nature of the classification — appear to undermine this account, a Reuters examination of the emails and the relevant regulations has found.
The new stamps indicate that some of Clinton’s emails from her time as the nation’s most senior diplomat are filled with a type of information the U.S. government and the department’s own regulations automatically deems classified from the get-go — regardless of whether it is already marked that way or not.

Ladies and gentlemen, we give you the Vast Right-Wing Classification Conspiracy:
