In the midst of the 2016 pres­id­en­tial primary sea­son, the FBI re­ceived what was de­scribed as a Rus­si­an in­tel­li­gence doc­u­ment claim­ing a ta­cit un­der­stand­ing between the Clin­ton cam­paign and the Justice De­part­ment over the in­quiry in­to wheth­er she in­ten­tion­ally re­vealed clas­si­fied in­form­a­tion through her use of a private email serv­er.” (Wash­ing­ton Post)
