If the emails being investigated by the House are any indication Hillary Clinton’s emails show a woman whose main concern is herself.
In a group of approximately 300 emails handed over to the House committee investigating the September 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi its apparent Clinton’s image was clearly her top priority.
In one email she sent to an advisor the same day House Republicans vigorously question a top State Department official she asked “Did we survive the day,” according to the New York Times.
The advisor responded affirmatively and informed the secretary that he would continue to monitor the situation.
According to the Times the emails show Clinton and her aides closely monitored the fallout from the attacks.
More importantly, they are clear proof Clinton wasn’t telling the truth when she said she always emailed aides on their government addresses so they would be recorded in compliance with federal regulations. Some clearly show she emailed them at their personal email accounts.
The descriptions of the emails were provided to the Times by four government officials on the condition of anonymity as they have not been made public.
The emails showed aides approved of then-United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice’s handling of the controversy when she appeared on Sunday news shows and blamed the attacks on a video.
“She did make clear our view that this started spontaneously then evolved,” Clinton’s deputy chief of staff Jake Sullivan wrote Clinton.
But as that narrative devolved in the coming weeks Sullivan sent a worried Clinton reassurance that she avoided the mistakes that were plaguing Rice.
“You never said ‘spontaneous’ or characterized their motivations,” he wrote her.
What the emails don’t show so far is any concern about getting to the truth about Benghazi.
It would be interesting to find out what the rest of her emails looked like if the server were examined.
If these 300 emails are any indication, it would be a whole lot of worrying about herself.
The Twitterverse weighed in with their thoughts on the latest twist in the “Emailgate” scandal.

@ron_fournier @HillaryClinton It sounds like HRC broke the law. If true she should be treated like Patraeus and be indicted.

@ron_fournier @HillaryClinton ‘did we survive’, quite an interesting choice of words.

@ron_fournier @HillaryClinton @charlescwcooke And Democrats will enthusiastically vote for her. What does this say about modern Dem party?
