The State Department revealed on Monday that at least 15 people mishandled former Secretary Hillary Clinton’s emails with a total of 23 different violations.
The revelation came in a letter that was written to Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley.
While the review is still not completed, the letter states that 15 people received write-ups for breaking state department rules, The Washington Times reported.
Mary Elizabeth Taylor, the State Department’s assistant secretary in the Bureau of Legislative Affairs wrote in the letter: “To this point, the Department has assessed culpability to 15 individuals, some of whom were culpable in multiple security incidents.”
“DS has issued 23 violations and 7 infractions incidents. … This number will likely change as the review progresses,” she added. “The department considers and violation of security policies to be a serious matter.”
Grassley, who is currently overseeing the review, responded to the State Department’s findings via Twitter on Tuesday morning.
He said that he was “glad” the State Department responded to his inquiry and that classified material must be “handled by the book.”
