The technology expert, who maintained the private email servers then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton used to conduct government business, will be offered immunity when he testifies before the House Benghazi committee, the Daily Mail reported. Her latest response as to why she did so, “I was not thinking a lot when I got in. I’m sorry about it, and I take full responsibility”. The others were turned over to the State Department.
Clinton released a statement on her Facebook page on Tuesday evening, in which she reiterated her sentiments from the interview and insisted that nothing she “sent or received was marked classified at the time.”
She also cast herself as an experienced policymaker who could get things done, arguing that breaking through the dysfunctional mess in Washington is more important than refusing to compromise perhaps a swipe at Sanders staunchly liberal platform.
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton speaks at a “Women for Hillary” grassroots organizing meeting, Thursday, September 10, 2015, in Columbus, Ohio. “What I had done was allowed, it was above board”, she said.
Hilary Clinton’s unfolding email scandal shows the importance of involving IT professionals in technology decisions from the start, according to an Associated Press article.
The FBI is in the midst of digging deeply into Mrs. Clinton’s e-mails, as is an investigation in the State Department that has found passages that were considered classified.

“His focus: “money. “…to create an economy that works for all people, not just a handful of billionaires”, said Presidential Candidate, Bernie Sanders. That tactic was tried during and after her tenure. “So I’m going to keep answering the questions and providing the facts so that people can understand better what happened”. “It was a matter of convenience, and she had done nothing wrong”, wrote Jon Sopel, BBC North America editor, noting that Clinton’s position had changed three times in the past week.
Separately, Secretary of State John Kerry announced that he was naming Ambassador Janice Jacobs to serve as the State Department’s “transparency coordinator” to help the agency respond to FOIA and congressional requests more efficiently.
He added, “Hillary Clinton’s last visit to Ohio was rough – she compared her opponents to terrorists and really failed to connect with voters here”.
After getting caught, Clinton claimed in March to have done nothing wrong, and refused to apologize – or to allow a third party to inspect the server. Except that the damage to Clinton’s campaign caused by persistent questions about why she had the server in the first place, and why she didn’t initially give it to the Justice Department, remains.
