“Do I think Clinton made a mistake when using their personal email to send secret letters? …If I still worked at the national security Agency and I was told that the head of Russian foreign Ministry Sergei Lavrov or someone similar personal electronic mailbox is not protected, I would move mountains to get access to it”, – ironically noted the retired General, immediately noting that his words are not an admission that U.S. intelligence services were doing something with the post of foreign Minister of Russia.
“I’m not saying that we have taken or not taken any action against Minister of foreign Affairs of Russia Sergey Lavrov… I mean, being a Secretary of state, Hillary Clinton was a logical target for foreign intelligence services”, – he stressed.
According to him, any diplomatic service can learn a lot of valuable information, even after reviewing the information, “which is not classified.”
“The information that Clinton kept in his mailbox, is of great interest to foreign intelligence services, and I would have lost the respect of his colleagues around the world, if they had not made every effort to see them,” said Hayden.
