The Obama administration’s top negotiator on the Iran nuclear deal — and a candidate for secretary of state in a Hillary Clinton administration — told the FBI that hacking attempts were made on her personal email account several years ago during a negotiation session.
The bombshell revelation comes from FBI notes taken during a Feb. 3 interview with a former State Department official. Though the official’s name and sex are redacted throughout the notes — which were compiled as part of the Clinton email investigation — other clues in the document strongly suggest that it is Wendy Sherman.
Sherman served as deputy secretary of state under Clinton — making her #3 at the agency — and as under secretary of state for political affairs. In that capacity, she served as chief negotiator on the Iran nuclear deal.
A close associate of Clinton’s, Sherman’s name has been floated as Clinton’s secretary of state should the former first lady be elected president.
