WASHINGTON — Hillary Rodham Clinton exclusively used a personal email account to conduct government business as secretary of state, State Department officials said, and may have violated federal requirements that officials’ correspondence be retained as part of the agency’s record.
Mrs. Clinton did not have a government email address during her four-year tenure at the State Department. Her aides took no actions to have her personal emails preserved on department servers at the time, as required by the Federal Records Act …
It was only two months ago, in response to a new State Department effort to comply with federal record-keeping practices, that Mrs. Clinton’s advisers reviewed tens of thousands of pages of her personal emails and decided which ones to turn over to the State Department. All told, 55,000 pages of emails were given to the department. …
Her expansive use of the private account was alarming to current and former National Archives and Records Administration officials and government watchdogs, who called it a serious breach.
“It is very difficult to conceive of a scenario — short of nuclear winter — where an agency would be justified in allowing its cabinet-level head officer to solely use a private email communications channel for the conduct of government business,” said Jason R. Baron, a lawyer at Drinker Biddle & Reath who is a former director of litigation at the National Archives and Records Administration.
No reason to think Hillary’s people would exclude any important emails, right?
Probably just more Republican bottom feeding on stuff no one cares about.
CBS This Morning:
Uhhh, okay… uhhh, John Dickerson …
CBS correspondent John Dickerson sort of puked all over Norah O’Donnell’s leading question there (Hint: The correct answer was uh-uh), leaving her at a momentary loss for words.
But Jeb Bush something something something.
The important thing to remember is that Colin Powell did the same thing a decade and a half ago during the Bush administration, when Edward Snowdon was still hacking AT&T for free long distance calls.
Hillary lied and people died, but don’t get excited Republicans; she’ll probably skate on this one, too.
