In a joint statement, the two inspector generals, Charles McCullough of the Office of National Intelligence and Steve Linick of the State Department, said their staffs had combed through 40 of the e-mails Clinton released to the public while claiming they were clean, and found at least four that contained classified information.
Said Linick, "This classified information should never have been transmitted via an unclassified personal system. If 10 percent of the e-mails the two IGs investigated were found to be tainted, that could mean than more than 3,000 of her personal emails were also tainted with classified information relating to national security. And that's only based on the 30,000 e-mails she "willingly" released. There were another 32,000 "private and personal" e-mails that she, and her lawyers of course, determined weren't relevant, and were deleted from her server.

"Instead, Steve Linick, State's Inspector General 'told me the Intelligence Community IG notified the Justice Department and Congress that they identified classified information in a few emails that were part of the [Freedom of Information Act] review, and that none of those emails had been previously marked as classified.'"
Update at 11:03 a.m. ET. The Public Release Of Classified Info:
In a memo dated June 29, Steve Linick, the State Department's inspector general, writes that there was concern that a batch of emails scheduled for release the next day contained "possible classified material."
But here is the key paragraph from a July 17, 2015, memo written by Steve Linick, the State Department's inspector general:

Steve Linick, head of the FHFA's OIG office, says the article overstates the case. Boyd wrote:
If you conveniently left off the fact that you have an outstanding mortgage you failed to pay, or that you have a deficiency judgment against you for the difference between what you owe and what the house sold for at foreclosure, you've committed mortgage fraud.
In a September 25 op-ed in DS News (an online trade publication on default servicing) titled "Placing Our Mission in Perspective," Linick writes it is "not the case" that his office "is going to 'lock up' anyone who strategically defaults on their mortgage. "My office is not 'on the prowl for people who owe [Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac] money.' We are, however, committed to combating mortgage fraud and improving the effectiveness and efficiency of FHFA's programs and operations."
To that end, he says, his office is auditing FHFA's oversight of how Fannie and Freddie recovers losses from foreclosure sales, and looking at how the companies handle strategic defaulters is part of that. What will come out of that effort will be recommendations for improving oversight of the two companies and how they recover funds. "This constitutes the extent of our current work on strategic defaulters," he explains.
Hopefully this piece will help reinforce Mr. Linick's op-ed and provide more clarity on the issue.
An excellent article from the New York Times titled How a Financial Pro Lost His House is worth a read, he walks us through his decision to strategically default and the consequences from that.
