In the email, Abedin is asking her assistant, Lauren Jiloty on July 20, 2009, to move “burn stuff,” papers meant for destruction because of their top secret nature, from the back seat of her vehicle to the trunk – so an ambassador in India wouldn’t see them when he rode with her.
She told Jiloty that the papers consisted of ‘burn stuff,’ indicating that they were classified documents that belonged among materials that agency rules required employees to place in ‘burn bags’ for incineration.
‘I’m going to have ambassador ride on next drive,’ Abedin wrote to Jiloty in an email titled ‘Favor.’
‘There’s a bunch of burn stuff in the pocket of my front seat.’
‘Can u put in trunk?’ she asked.
Jiloty responded that she would take care of it. h/t dailymail
The State Department’s Foreign Affairs Manual directs that ‘burn bags must contain only the classified material that is to be destroyed.’
‘Personal documents, trash, recyclable materials, metal objects (such as binder clips and acco fasteners), string, twine, spiral bindings, cleaning cloths, food, or any other object that is not classified material should not be placed in a burn bag.’
Unless Abedin planned to violate State Department rules regarding burn bags, the papers she referred to were unquestionably classified materials.
