Washington, DC ’ Rep. Ron DeSantis (FL-06), Chairman of the Subcommittee on National Security, has issued the following statement regarding the release of an e-mail from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton directing staff to transmit secure information over an unsecure connection:

"To order that classified markings be removed so that classified information can be transmitted over an unclassified and unsecured server represents a stunning level of recklessness.  A rank-and-file State Department employee would never have gotten away with pulling a similar stunt.  Secretary Clinton needs to be held accountable and should receive no special treatment from the Department of Justice."
