Although the State Department issued a statement saying there was “no indication” former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton used her personal email for classified information, State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf refused to categorically deny that Clinton was using a private email for classified business during a daily press briefing.

“Do have anything further on whether there is going to be a comprehensive review of the contents of these emails, or how it is that you’ve reached the decision that there was no classified information included in them?” (RELATED: Defense Department Lies To A Journalist To Avoid Releasing Emails)

“She and her team have said that it was not used for anything but unclassified work,” Harf responded. “We don’t undergo scans of everyone’s unclassified email to make sure they’re only doing unclassified work.”

“I don’t think there was any indication she was doing anything but here,” she continued. “So I don’t think it’s really a pertinent question.”

“[Can you] claim definitively that there was nothing classified in there…?” the reporter continued. (VIDEO: Judge Napolitano On Hillary’s Emails: ‘She Knowingly Violated The Law’)

“You can’t claim that about anyone’s unclassified email,” Harf cut across. “So I’m not sure why this would be anything different.”
