The disclosure was included in 100 pages the FBI released from its now-closed investigation into whether the former secretary of state and her aides mishandled sensitive government information that flowed through the private mail server located in her NY home.
Officials from the State Department's Information Programs and Services office began a review in March 2015 of 296 e-mails that were set to be turned over to a House committee investigating the 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya.
Monday, the FBI released documents from their investigation of Clinton that revealed a dispute between the Clinton State Department and the FBI over the classification of a Benghazi email sent to Clinton.
The FBI is denying that any "quid pro quo" was offered in the fight between the bureau and State Department over the classification level of the email, though one interview described it as such.
The FBI on Monday issued almost 100 new pages of notes and interview summaries from its yearlong probe into Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server, revealing more about FBI's decision not to launch a criminal charge against the former secretary of state over the matter.
Most of the Republican nominee's almost hour long campaign speech at the KI Convention Center focused on his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton's, emails from her time as head of the State Department.
State Department spokesman Mark Toner said the allegation of an exchange between the agencies "does not align with the facts", noting that the department did upgrade the classification of the document in question at the request of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
"This allegation is inaccurate and does not align with the facts", State Department spokesman Mark Toner said.
Allegations that Kennedy engaged in a quid pro quo arrangement could be detrimental to both the Clinton campaign as well as Kennedy's career.
Hours after new FBI documents were released on the investigation into Hillary Clinton's private email server from her time as Secretary of State, Donald Trump told a rally in Wisconsin that it was more evidence of a scandal that he argues is "worse than Watergate".
While Gallagher and other Republicans are expected to own Donald Trump, 8th CD Democratic candidate Tom Nelson gets a pass on supporting Hillary Clinton despite her toxicity.
"Those who receive classified intelligence should not barter in it - that is reckless behavior with our nation's secrets", the two Republican lawmakers said in a statement. In promising extraordinary transparency in the Clinton email investigation, FBI Director James Comey authorized the release of interview summaries and agents' notes that are nearly never seen by the public particularly in cases that close without charges.
"Classification is an art, not a science, and individuals with classification authority sometimes have different views", Mr. Toner said, as The Hill reported. Clinton has long said that she never knowingly handled secrets on her private system. "Therefore, President Obama and Secretary Kerry should immediately remove Under Secretary Kennedy pending a full investigation", they said. Another FBI employee claimed that it was the FBI who brought up placing agents in Iraq in exchange for declassifying information.
