C’mon… that’s just basic accountability.
Washington (CNN)Hillary Clinton did not have a State Department email account while she served as America’s top diplomat, a senior state department official said Monday, and instead used a personal email account during her four years on the job.
Using personal email as a sole method of communication appears to break rules outlined by the National Archives and Records Administration. The government agency stipulates that personal email can only be used in “emergency situations,” and when used, the emails “are captured and managed in accordance with agency record-keeping practices.”
There’s only one reason that Clinton would have used a private email account instead of a government one… she intended to obscure her activities from scrutiny. Why would she want to keep her activities secret? Logic would dictate (an homage to Spock) that she intended to engage in unethical and/or illegal behavior.
What is more telling is that nobody said anything. Government officials, cabinet members, possibly foreign dignitaries, and even possibly the president himself were receiving emails from Clinton from a gmail account or something and never raised a stink about it. It makes you wonder how many other Obama officials are hiding their correspondence.
