Half of those emails were reportedly personal and private, and remainder had been turned over because they were related to State Department business, Clinton had said.
Many Americans believe that former US secretary of state Hillary Clinton has lied about her controversial private emails, a new poll shows.
“As someone who regularly reviews classified material, I can say that those documents are always clearly marked as containing classified information“. Except that they were not classified when she was Secretary of State. “Biden getting closer to presidential run as Hillary getting closer to going to prison” was the headline on a wishful-thinking conservative blog post.
And Clinton remained defiant when speaking to reporters at the Iowa State Fair later on Saturday afternoon, dismissing any suggestion that she was taking the controversy too lightly.
Early Saturday afternoon, Clinton’s campaign doubled down, tweeting a clip of her making the joke. He said past secretaries have used private email accounts as well.
An attorney for the IT company that oversees the Clinton’s computer systems says the drive was wiped clean when their system was upgraged.
Clinton’s closest opponent for the nomination, Vermont Sen. “Trust me. It’s what’s for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack”, he told the audience at the Des Moines Register Soapbox, where presidential candidates can speak for up to 20 minutes. Laurie Rubiner, vice president of public policy and advocacy for Planned Parenthood, asked Clinton in July 2009 to discuss abortion during an upcoming trip to Kenya.
“Hillary Clinton has been a strong supporter of this union for years and she is now the target of unprecedented attacks, financed on a scale never seen before”, Buffenbarger said. Forty-one percent said the emails shouldn’t be looked into.
In March, Clinton said she exchanged about 60,000 emails in her four years in the Obama administration, about half of which were personal and were discarded.
The next batch, on August. 31, will come two days after Clinton and her primary challengers are scheduled to address members of the Democratic National Committee in Minneapolis.
Republicans have accused Clinton of hiding something.
Clinton’s turning over of the server is “a welcome development”, he said, but he declared: “That’s a long time for top secret classified information to be held by an unauthorised person outside of an approved, secure government facility”.
The inspector general for U.S. intelligence agencies referred the case to the DOJ after finding top-secret information had been contained in the limited number of email records he was able to review. The Justice Department has been criticized by defense lawyers and secrecy experts alike for an approach they say is inconsistent. “I think paranoia is healthy if you’re in politics, because there’s people who they get up in the morning, their whole goal is to try to figure out how to hurt somebody”.
