Hillary Clinton bombshell: She ONLY used personal email account as sec of state – no records?

The House committee investigating the 2012 attacks in Benghazi has discovered that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton may have violated federal law by exclusively using her personal email address to conduct government business.

The committee found Clinton, the likely 2016 Democrat presidential nominee, never had an official government email address for her entire tenure as secretary of state, the New York Times reported Monday.

More damning is that her staff made no effort to archive her emails on the agency’s servers in violation of the Federal Records Act.

The Washington Post added to the story Monday when it reported the email address Clinton seemed to be using at the domain “clintonemail.com” was registered on January 13, 2009.

That’s the day Senate confirmation hearings for the Secretary of State position began.

“It is very difficult to conceive of a scenario — short of nuclear winter — where an agency would be justified in allowing its cabinet-level head officer to solely use a private email communications channel for the conduct of government business,” Jason R. Baron, a lawyer and former director of litigation at the National Archives and Records Administration, told the Times.

“I can recall no instance in my time at the National Archives when a high-ranking official at an executive branch agency solely used a personal email account for the transaction of government business,” he added.

The National Archives and Records Administration regulations required that all emails from Clinton’s personal account be maintained in the agency’s registry, which her staff failed to do.

“It’s a shame it didn’t take place automatically when she was secretary of state as it should have,” said Thomas S. Blanton, the director of National Security Archive. “Someone in the State Department deserves credit for taking the initiative to ask for the records back. Most of the time it takes the threat of litigation and embarrassment.”

According to Blanton, historical archiving is not the only reason top government officials shouldn’t use personal email accounts for official business.

“Personal emails are not secure,” he told the Times.

As the scandals continue to pile up on Clinton, her Democratic presidential nomination may not be as sure a thing as once thought.

The Twiterverse slammed the former secretary of state over the latest scandal.

Perhaps they are emails in waiting?


I believe it was.

So that’s where she is?
