Hillary Clinton believes she's the most transparent person in American history. The Democratic presidential candidate made the claim in a town hall this morning, hosted by NBC's Today Show:
"I have gone further than anybody that I'm aware of in American history," Clinton said of the release of her emails. "Now it's not a long history since we haven't had emails that long--as long as we've had them, I've gone longer and farther to be as transparent as possible. Nobody else has done that."
Clinton added that she's "a little embarrassed that the emails are so boring."
In one newly released email from Hillary Clinton, one discovers that John Kerry had Hillary Clinton's personal email address. Note that Kerry, who was then a senator but is now secretary of state, chose who would be in charge of overseeing the State Department's response to document requests related to Clinton.
Longtime Clinton ally Terry McAuliffe, the governor of Virginia, is scolding Hillary Clinton for improper use of email while she was secretary of state. But the former DNC chair is glad Clinton is apologizing.
"I’m glad she came out yesterday and today and said it was a mistake and she shouldn’t have done it, and I agree with that," McAuliffe told the Roanoke Times in an interview.
Hillary Clinton sat down with MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell Friday in a rare one-on-one interview. After several questions from Mitchell about Clinton's use of a private email and a homebrew server while she was secretary of state, the Democratic frontrunner apologized the controversy was "confusing" the American people.
A spokesman for Hillary Clinton told CNN he did not know what it means for a computer server to be "wiped."
Brian Fallon, Clinton's press secretary, spoke with CNN's Brianna Keilar about the news that a former IT staffer who worked on Clinton's private email server is pleading the Fifth Amendment in front of a congresional committee investigating the Benghazi terrorist attack.
Keilar pressed Fallon about why the former secretary of state deleted personal emails from her server, and the two had an exchange about the propriety of deleting those emails.
While looking through the newest batch of Hillary Clinton emails released by the State Department, one finds a disturbing anti-Israel trend. Her advisers regularly criticized Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, the "US. Jewish community," and AIPAC.
The latest stash of emails from Hillary Clinton's private server released by the State Department has (once again!) revealed Washington to be a particularly unbearable place, employing particularly insufferable people. From Clinton's email correspondence with her senior staff we can observe how those with proximity to power engage in rare forms of backstabbing, obsequiousness, pettiness, bad humor, and self-obsession.
Presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton finds herself under growing scrutiny over the classified contents of dozens of emails (perhaps hundreds once the State Department finishes releasing them all) she sent and received as head of the State Department. As it turns out, Mrs. Clinton could have avoided this pitfall by following her own guidance while she was still in office.
In one of the newly release Hillary Clinton emails, a mostly redacted message from Philip Gordon to Huma Abedin and Jacob Sullivan ends with, "To quote Huma, I don't get paid enough." Abedin, Clinton’s closest aide, was able to change her fortunes with a little help from friends.
Hillary Clinton is a scandalous candidate for president of the United States. Most people acknowledge this, at least judging by her plummeting poll numbers. A raft of stories gives the distinct impression that she and her husband have been running an elaborate pay-to-play operation. Donations to the Clinton Foundation may have produced favorable State Department policies dealing with Russia-owned U.S. uranium deposits, Haitian relief efforts, and foreign banking interests.
