Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton claimed no one had access to classified information via her private email server during the second presidential debate Sunday. Former Clinton aide Justin Cooper, however, had access to all information on the server, according to his recent testimony.
“I was privy to lots of material obviously as secretary of state I had some of the most important secrets that we possess, such as going after Bin Laden,” Clinton stated. “So I am very committed to taking classified information seriously. And, as I said, there is no evidence that any classified information ended up in the wrong hands.”

Self-described advisor to former President Bill Clinton disagrees, telling Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz he had access to the Clinton private server in September.
REP. JASON CHAFFETZ (R-UT): “After you left the White House early in, when did you leave the White House?”
BILL CLINTON AIDE JUSTIN COOPER: “In 2001”
CHAFFETZ: “2001, Did you ever have a security clearance level of any level after that?”
COOPER: “No, I do not have a security clearance.”
REP. CHAFFETZ: “When you had full access to the whole server the entire time that you were working for the Clintons.”
COOPER: “Yes, I had access to the server.”
REP. CHAFFETZ: “And you have no Security Clearance?”
COOPER: “I have no security clearance.”
