FBI investigating if Clinton aides shared passwords to access classified info | Fox News

EXCLUSIVE: The FBI is investigating whether computer passwords were shared among Hillary Clinton’s close aides to determine how sensitive intelligence “jumped the gap” between the classified systems and Clinton’s unsecured personal server, according to an intelligence source familiar with the probe.

The source underscored to Fox News that if[ Clinton] was allowing other people to use her passwords, that is a big problem. The Foreign Service Officers Manual prohibits the sharing of passwords.

Such passwords are required to access each State Department network. This includes the network for highly classified intelligence — known as SCI or Sensitive Compartmented Information — and the unclassified system, known as SBU or Sensitive But Unclassified, according to former State Department employees.

Fox News was told there are several potential scenarios for how classified information got onto Clintons server 😛 TAGEND Reading intelligence reports or briefings, and then summarizing the findings in emails sent on Clinton’s unsecured personal server. Accessing the classified intelligence computer network, and then lifting segments by typing them verbatim into a device such as an iPad or BlackBerry. Taking pictures of a computer screen to capture the intelligence. Use a thumb drive or disk to physically move the intelligence, but this would require access to a data center. Its unclear whether Clintons former IT specialist Bryan Pagliano, who as first reported by The Washington Post has reached an immunity deal with the Justice Department, or others had sufficient administrator privileges to physically transfer data.
