Hillary Claimed She Used One Email Address as Sec of State. That’s Not What These New Emails Show…

from IJReview,

It looks like Hillary Clinton’s email woes won’t be ending anytime soon.

It all started several months ago when it was revealed that Clinton used a private email address during her tenure as Secretary of State.

When this news originally broke, the Clinton team chalked the whole thing up to the presidential candidate’s dislike of carrying around two phones. This claim was quickly proven to be false.

They also assured the American public that she only used one private email address. Here is part of her campaign’s statement on the matter, released on March 10th:

“Secretary Clinton used one email account during her tenure at State,” it read.

One of Clinton’s attorneys, David Kendall, even denied the existence of a second email address in a statement issued to Rep. Trey Gowdy the same month:

“As explained in my March 4th, 2015 email to your Staff Director and certain others, “hrod17@clintonemail.com” is not an address that existed during Secretary Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State,” the statement read.

Then, this came out. Behold: An email from “hrod17@clintonemail.com,” dated April 8, 2011. The New York Times, while digging into emails Clinton sent about Libya, found a series of emails contradicting the Clinton camp’s statements. The newly discovered email address seems to have been used throughout 2011 and 2012, roughly half of the time she served as Secretary.
