And in May 2011, then-senator John Kerry, who ended up succeeding her as secretary of state, wrote from his iPad to tell her of his dinner with Afghan president Hamid Karzai. But Clinton said that the passport application must “retain the presumption of a mother and father”.
In August, Clinton submitted a sworn statement to a U.S. District Court saying she had directed all her work emails to be provided to the State Department. Speaking of her emails on CBS’ “Face the Nation” this week, Clinton said, “We provided all of them”.
Clinton’s 2008 campaign made the fatal error of writing off caucus states as unimportant.
The email was written at a time when Clinton had yet to come out in favor of same-sex marriage. She has become the subject of State Department and congressional inquiries who are trying to learn if what she did presented a conflict of interest.
Beginning with a June 8 Washington Post story about pressure on Weiner to resign, Mills forwarded Clinton a handful of articles and press releases.
Wednesday afternoon, the State Department released a fifth installment of the embattled former Secretary’s emails.
The email exchange, which came shortly after Google revealed that it suspected Chinese hackers tried to steal passwords of hundreds of Gmail users, including U.S. government officials, gives further insight into Clinton’s decision to forego a government email account while serving as secretary of state.
These steps are unlikely to satisfy Clinton’s Republican critics.
Huma Abedin is the most loyal of Clinton loyalists who weren’t barred from holding a job in the Obama administration (see: Sidney Blumenthal). Another conspiracy theory? she responded with a laugh when host Chuck Todd asked her to consider an alternative explanation of her e-mail issues. The Federal Bureau of Investigation, a pair of inspectors general and Congress all are looking into the issue, prompting questions about her judgment and the motive for actions that potentially led to national security risks.
Another email in the latest dump is from a transgender person, whose name is redacted by the State Department, praising Clinton for allowing transgender people to change the gender markers on their passports.
Poland, who is behind the Facebook group, “A Teacher’s Perspective“, arguing against an early endorsement, also questioned the polling cited by the union’s California chapter in its decision to back Clinton. Her next fundraising report will show how she fared during the typical summer lull and give insiders a look into how efficiently her campaign is running. What a claim to fame.
The hacking attempts were included in the 6,300 pages the State Department released, covering a period when US forces killed Osama bin Laden and the Arab Spring rocked American diplomacy. The FBI is investigating whether Clinton’s arrangement may have compromised national security and would be the most likely entity to find out the answer. Now what are we doing next year? “I’m not about to let anybody who can make a contribution to our economy and our society get thrown away”.
But a judge, prompted by a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit by a Vice News reporter, ordered an accelerated schedule, forcing the State Department to publish email tranches each month until the project’s completion on January 20, 2016.
