The emails included in the documents are from the months prior to the formal opening of the Clinton email probe, and they show disagreements between the FBI and the State Department over whether some of Clinton’s personal emails should be classified.”, reported Fox News.
“In April 2015, an FBI official emailed other FBI officials, warning them that the State Department was going to be dragging them into the Clinton email classification issue.” reported the Daily Caller.
“You’re about to get drug (sic) into an issue on classification of the Clinton emails,” the official wrote.
“They are contesting CTD’s classification decision and would like to discuss it with you. (Forum shopping I believe.) I’ll call you and give you some info, then they’ve asked if you could call _____ (last name I think) _____.”
The Daily Caller clarified that “forum shopping” meant “seeking a favorable opinion on the classification issue by asking different officials to rate emails as unclassified.”
