Report: The State Department Really Isn’t Good At Preserving Emails
MARCH 13, 2015
About 1 billion emails were sent by State Department staffers in 2011, when Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, but the State Department only preserved less than 62,000 of those emails. In relation to Clinton’s email scandal, Clinton admitted at a press conference that she deleted nearly 32,000 emails from the private email server she used to conduct official business. In addition, Judicial Watch revealed from a State Department source that Hillary Clinton used an unauthorized iPad and iPhone while she was Secretary of State. Read more about that discovery here.
Below is a quote from the article that summarizes Hillary Clinton’s email scandal:
Yet, back to something more concrete, that fact that Hillary decided she could delete some 31,000 emails has raised eyebrows in the press. It means the public will not view the majority of the emails in question, which now total to a little over 62,000. If anything, Hillary possibly just killed any chance of being a candidate for a more open, transparent government, which she harped on in 2007-08. It reinforces the notion that the Clintons play by their own set of rules, and that the public should trust her because she’s Hillary.
