A new intelligence review concludes Hillary Clinton received two "top secret" emails on her personal server as secretary of state – including one about North Korea's nuclear weapons program, The New York Times
According to the Times, the review by the CIA and the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency, completed Monday, determined the messages held the nation’s highest classification of government intelligence.
Its findings were similar to those made by the inspector general.
According to the Times, one email had information about North Korea's nuclear weapons program.
As the Clinton campaign did about the inspector general's conclusion, it took issue with the intelligence review too, the Times reports.
"Our hope remains that these releases continue without being hampered by bureaucratic infighting among the intelligence community, and that the releases continue to be as inclusive and transparent as possible," campaign spokesman Nick Merrill tells the Times.
Added State Department spokesman John Kirby:
"Classification is rarely a black and white question, and it is common for the State Department to engage internally and with our interagency partners to arrive at the appropriate decision," he says in a statement to the Times.
"Very often both the State Department and the intelligence community acquire information on the same matter through separate channels. Thus, there can be two or more separate reports and not all of them based on classified means. At this time, any conclusion about the classification of the documents in question would be premature."
Clinton, whose poll numbers have been slipping amid the email scandal,
remains adamantly defensive, telling the Associated Press Monday "what I did was allowed," and that she doesn't need to apologize for using a private server.
"I did not send or receive any information marked classified," Clinton insists .
"I take the responsibilities of handling classified materials very seriously and did so."
