    (Fox News, January 26, 2016) A 2013 video, obtained exclusively by Fox News, raises fresh questions about how Hillary Clinton handled sensitive information at the State Department.

    In the video, veteran diplomat Wendy Sherman reveals that in the interest of speed, Clinton and her aides would share information that "would never be on an unclassified system" normally.

    The questions surround a 2013 speech in which Sherman compared the technology differences between serving at the State Department in the administrations of President Bill Clinton and President Obama.

    "Now we have BlackBerries, and it has changed the way diplomacy is done," Sherman, who was undersecretary of state at the time, said in the 2013 on-camera remarks. "Things appear on your BlackBerries that would never be on an unclassified system. But you're out traveling, you're trying to negotiate something. You want to communicate with people, it's the fastest way to do it."

    Clinton's use of a personal server for her official emails during her time as secretary of state is now being reviewed by the FBI.

    The Democratic presidential candidate has maintained she never sent or received information that was marked classified at the time. Questions also have been raised about whether classified emails were hacked by China, Russia, Iran and other nations.

    In Sherman's speech to the American Foreign Service Association, she cited as an example Clinton's September 2011 visit to the United Nations General Assembly.

    The secretary of state met with Lady Ashton of the European Union and, according to Sherman, the two high officials used their BlackBerries to conduct Middle East peace negotiations.

    "So they sat there, as they were having the meeting, with their BlackBerries, transferring language back and forth between them and between their aides to multitask in a quite a new fashion," said Sherman. "To have the meeting and at the same time be working on the Quartet statement."

    The Middle East Quartet is involved in facilitating the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, and consists of the U.S., the U.N., the E.U., and Russia.

    Previous email releases by the State Department of Clinton's official correspondence show that in September 2011, Clinton aide Jake Sullivan forwarded her an email chain on the Quartet statement.

    The State Department considered the correspondence sensitive enough that the department deemed some of those emails to now be classified, and officials redacted details before the emails were released to the public.

    The conservative super PAC America Rising declared that under National Archives guidelines, the information deemed classified involves "foreign relations or foreign activities of the United States, including confidential sources," so it was born classified when the emails were created.

    "Despite her numerous protests, evidence continues to grow showing Secretary Clinton knowingly sent and received classified material using her private email," Jeff Bechdel, communications director for America Rising, said in a written statement. "This new video again puts Clinton on defense, forcing the former Secretary of State to explain why she put U.S. intelligence at risk by exclusively [using] a private email account for government business."

    A Clinton aide would not comment on the video, which was revealed as new Fox News polls showed a tightening race between Clinton and Democratic Sen. Bernie Sanders. Clinton's once double-digit lead in Iowa has dwindled to just 6 points, while Sanders has opened a 22-point lead in New Hampshire.

    The polls also showed that in both Iowa and New Hampshire, Democratic voters said the top quality they want in a candidate is being honest and trustworthy, while experience and electability were less important.

    In Clinton case, I think you had people that had no real understanding or appreciation of what makes a BlackBerry secure......

    Really shows how important education would be for people in a position to handle secure information. But then from my experience with a few DoD departments... mobile devices are not used to distribute sensitive data, that stays on secure closed networks.

    Fox News won't need to worry about Clinton much longer. God damn Marxist, fascist, communist, socialist is coming. Lol

    Note : Are you telling me the Clinton's are the only morons to do this? Really ? Bet you there's a history of this going on both parties.

    I don't think blackberrys are the issue here. It was noted that some group from the government (I think the nsa) was finally able to intercept some blackberry emails. It was later noted that it was only with Microsoft based email servers. Basically, they were able to read some emails after it was delivered on to those servers. Again, not a blackberry issue.

    Fox News will have 8 years of President Hillary Clinton, and while that scares them and their viewers, I'm actually scared of where BlackBerry will be by the time she leaves office in 2025.

    My work does not require any security clearance and I know practically nothing about these things. Yet even at my low level I am hyper-aware that if I conveyed much less important information by any unofficial electronic means, I would lose all my contracts and most likely my licenses to practice. It would be in the news, and I would be ostracized by my customers & colleagues. So it is astounding to me that anyone with two brain cells to rub together believes claims by a smart attorney with decades of high-level experience, easy access to expert advice & clear legal & ethical guidelines was unaware she was violating protocols. Her defense is that emails were not classified at the time? That means she knew it was sensitive material. But then this is more of the same behavior pattern she has displayed her entire career. Sigh. I aspire to be above the rules someday as well ... and to have my own invisible cloak so the public will believe what I say rather than what I do. Magical.

    That isn't "intercept". The word would be "access".

    All Fox News has to do is find someone in law enforcement to talk to Chen and Chen will release anything the lawful paperwork says to release.

    I'm not blaming Chen though. He comes from a place where you get run over by tanks if you make a stand. And for all I know the American government seems even scarier than that.

    All I know is Chen is no Tim Cook. And I wouldn't want to do anything on my BlackBerry that I felt needed to be protected by encryption. Chen may as well be working for the NSA.

    It sounds like you don't know how warrants work (and I'm not wishing for you to be served with one to learn about them). If you don't comply, you are in contempt. Apple complies with warrants and Cook will say so. Not sure what your argument is other than being misleading or misinformed.

    Do you want a system where a Judge signs off on a lawful warrant, or where NSA just goes and does what is needed and accesses ALL DATA without requiring a Judge to sign off? Because that is what is/does/will happen.

    Not true. Anybody can challenge a warrant. Let's take this to the lowest form of warrants... Suppose some entity wants to enter your house with a warrant. You're within your rights to challenge that warrant. But unless you have some reasonable and significant justification to justify the challenge, you're out of luck. Which is why corporations like Google and Apple publish transparent reports about warrants vs actual compliance. Both of which demonstrate less than a 30% rate of success for turning over information. A warrant doesn't give free reign to invade.

    Right, I should have stated "valid" warrant. Of course there are procedural and other errors, but if its done right, you comply. You then try and have the evidence obtained thrown out, after the fact.
