An e-mail that Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton sent almost four months after she left the State Department was partially redacted before being publicly released, raising questions about whether she conveyed classified information as a private citizen.

The May 2013 e-mail, which the Republican National Committee obtained under a Freedom of Information Act and provided Wednesday, joins more than 2,000 messages that the former secretary of state sent or received through her private server during her tenure that have been labeled “confidential,” a low level of classification.
