FBI files show there are two missing boxes of printouts of Hillary Clinton's emails – as well as an allegation of evidence tampering, Fox News reported Thursday.
Initially there were 14 boxes at an office used by Clinton and her associates in Washington, D.C. Two were missing when State Department employees went to take custody of the boxes in December 2014, Fox News reported.
Details about the boxes are outlined in five heavily redacted pages of the FBI file posted by Fox News that summarize statements of a State Department witness who worked in the "Office of Information Programs and Services (IPS)."
According to the data, the witness told the FBI "on or about Dec. 5, 2014, IPS personnel picked up only 12 bankers boxes of CLINTON’s emails . . ." Fox News reported.
The officials were not sure if the boxes "were consolidated or what could have happened to the two other boxes," according to the summary.
A senior State Department official, Patrick Kennedy, also told his staffers to change markings on the emails so the public and Congress would not know they were redacted because they contained classified information, according to the FBI summary.
Fox News reported, in reply to the FBI summary, and the claim Kennedy allegedly tampered with the Freedom of Information Act review process, State Department spokesman Elizabeth Trudeau said they "strongly refute those claims."
"The department has complete confidence that the . . . attorneys performed the highest professional and ethical standards, including, with connection, with the review and release of Secretary Clinton's emails."
