WASHINGTON -- The State Department says Sen. John Kerry used a private email account to send information now deemed classified to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on her personal server.
Spokesman John Kirby said Tuesday that Kerry, then a Democratic senator from Massachusetts, used a "non-official account" to send a May 19, 2011, message to Clinton and then-national security adviser Tom Donilon. Portions of the message were classified as "secret" last week and censored when it was released along with about another 1,000 of Clinton's emails. Kirby said the account that Kerry used to send the email from his iPad while he was chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee is no longer active.
The message in question refers to developments between India, Pakistan and Afghanistan at the time.
