A 2012 email unclassified in January by the State Department was marked with a special classified code when it was sent to Hillary Clinton's private email account.
The April 9, 2012, document sent to "H" from aide Monica Hanley carried a classified code known as "portion marking" — and the code was on the email when it sent, Fox News reports
The code included a "C" and is located at the bottom of the first page of the email. The designation means that the communication was classified at the "confidential" level, according to Fox
Huma Abedin, a top Clinton associate, was copied on the document.
The email concerns a telephone call from Clinton, who was then secretary of state, with President Joyce Banda of Malawi in southeastern Africa.
Banda had not long assumed power after the death of President Bingu wa Mutharika, becoming the nation's first female president.
"(C) Purpose of Call: to offer condolences on the passing of President Mukharika and congratulate President Banda on her recent swearing in," the information reads on the email.
All other information afterward was redacted by the State Department before the document was unclassified.
As recently as this week, Clinton — now the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee — reiterated that she had neither sent nor received classified information on her private server.
"The fact is, nothing that I sent or received was marked classified, and nothing has been demonstrated to contradict that," she told Fox's Bret Baier
