Presidential Election 2016
Hillary Clinton isn't out of the woods just yet! Although the FBI cleared her yesterday in her email scandal, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is now claiming he has solid evidence proving the presidential candidate committed a felony.
As RadarOnline.com reported, the FBI announced on Tuesday that they would not recommend charges against Clinton in relation to her email server scandal. But on the heels of that news, Assange dropped a bombshell.
In an interview with ITV's Robert Peston, the Wikileaks founder said, "We published an email where Hillary Clinton is instructing her staff to remove the classified header of a classified document and send it by non-classified fax."
The email to which Assange is referring was an exchange between Clinton, then secretary of state, and adviser Jake Sullivan. Clinton wanted her aide to send a set of talking points, but since the secure fax was not coming through, she advised him to turn the talking points into "nonpaper w no identifying heading and send nonsecure."

Instructing her staff to remove the classified header and send it through a non-secure fax would violate classification procedures and would be the "smoking gun" to incite charges against Clinton, law professor and radio host Hugh Hewitt Tweeted.
Sen. Chuck Grassley called the email "disturbing."
Clinton's camp told CBS News, "It is false that Hillary Clinton asked for classified material to be sent over a nonsecure system."
Meanwhile, Assange revealed that Wikileaks has published 32,000 of Clinton's emails so far, with more than 1,000 this week alone.
