Holy canoli, Batman. Here's just one email classified until 2027! Also the sheer scale of the redactions in the release is in itself revealing (natsec). This is just... incredible.

For those unaware, the 1.4 references come from EO 13526, 'Classified National Security Information'
en.m.wikisource.org/wiki/Executive…
Note : 'Information shall not be considered for classification unless its unauthorized disclosure could reasonably be expected to cause identifiable or describable damage to the national security...'

This email flags 1.4(B) & 1.4(D) of the EO.
The contents (redacted) are classified information relating to:

1.4 (b) foreign government information; and
1.4 (d) foreign relations or foreign activities of the United States, including confidential sources.

Unbelievable.
This email alone presumably earns a 10 year minimum jail term under 18 US Code Ch 37 (798):

Remember, it is just 1 of approximately 650,000 emails. Try and get your head around that.
And Title 18 U.S. Code § 1924

This is UNCHARTED TERRITORY, folks.

It's also a very well planned, methodical roll-out of information to educate the population and soften the blow when the many arrests coming down the line start to happen.

Clearly the crimes are incredibly serious.
