Following the FBI's recommendation that no charges be filed over Hillary Clinton's use of private email servers while secretary of state, a spokesman for the State Department says it does not have a 'lax culture' with regard to protecting classified information. Rough Cut (no reporter narration).
ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) The U.S. State Department said on Tuesday it disagreed with FBI Director James Comey's assessment that the department as a whole has a lax attitude toward security compared to other U.S. government offices. "We don't share the broad assessment made of our institution that there's a lax culture here when it comes to protecting classified information. We take it very, very seriously," State Department spokesman John Kirby told a news briefing. His comments came after Comey announced some of the results of the FBI's yearlong investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while she was in office. Comey said the FBI found evidence of a general lack of care for classified information at the State Department.
