US Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton forgot classified documents at a hotel in Russia during a trip as secretary of state, documents released by the US Federal Bureau of Investigation show.
The documents, released on Friday and cited by ABC News, show that when Clinton was on a trip to Russia while serving as US secretary of state, her aide brought a classified briefing book into the hotel suite. The classified documents were left behind when the aide and Clinton left the room.
According to the FBI documents, the briefing book should not have been brought into the hotel suite in Russia.
In fact, the documents released today show that during a trip to Russia while secretary of state, one of Clinton's aides brought a pouch with Clinton's classified briefing book into the hotel suite they were sharing. After Clinton and the aide left the suite, diplomatic security found a classified document had been left behind -- and the pouch should not have been brought to the suite in first place, according to the FBI documents.
