Clinton sent 322 emails with subject "Important military passwords - DON'T LOSE."

The F.B.I. concluded that Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server during her time as secretary of state was “extremely careless” but not criminal, ending their investigation. The F.B.I. released figures on what they found in the 30,000 emails they analyzed:

  • 8 emails included “top secret” information
  • 36 emails included “secret” information
  • 2000+ emails included “classified” information

That’s pretty interesting, but we dug a little deeper and found the following even more interesting data:

  • 322 emails with subject “Important military passwords - DON’T LOSE.”
  • 1,549 instances of the phrase, “No one’s gonna see this right? How do I delete this to MAKE SURE no one sees it?”
  • 193 emails in Unsent Drafts folder addressed to PrezBillC@hotmail.com with subject “Let me get this straight…”
  • 6 emails from staffers reminding her “Your granddaughter’s name is Charlotte.”
  • 43 emails Clinton sent to herself with some variation of subject line “Yoga Power Poses For Working Woman.”
  • 8,309 emails forwarded to Clinton from co-workers containing jokes on the subject of womanhood; of these, Clinton forwarded along 8,304.
  • An intricate system of color-coded labels to organize her inbox. Pretty cool, actually.
  • Clinton signed her emails with “Fondly” 12,007 times, “Sincerely” 6,204 times, and “Hilldog Out” a mere 3 times.
  • Use of acronym “LOL” swings wildly and seemingly randomly from meaning “Laughing Out Loud” to “Lots Of Love” to one case of “Lips On Linoleum,” ostensibly referring to her rear end as “Linoleum.”
  • Clinton appeared to only start an email with “Hey” if she was mad or extremely distraught.
  • “You must be the change you wish to see in the world” was included in her email signature in 2009; in 2010 it was changed to “Hillary Clinton: Mother, Proud American, Chocoholic.”
  • In apparent nod to Inbox Zero, Clinton maintained an impressively strict “Inbox 69” email level at nearly all times.
  • This link of sand art by “Ukraine’s Got Talent” winner Kseniya Simonova was shared at least once to each of her email contacts from 2009 to 2013.
