On New Year’s Eve, the State Department released more emails from Hillary Clinton’s private server. But many of those messages that weren’t originally marked classified are classified now.

Of the emails released on New Year’s Eve, 275 of them were retroactively upgraded to classified before being released.

In all, 1,274 emails from Clinton’s time at the State Department were upgraded to classified before being made public.

The emails are classified for different reasons. Some emails are classified to protect "personal privacy." Some contain information on foreign governments. All — redacted or not — are on the State Department’s website.
