The Clinton campaign has now admitted that the former secretary of state did not turn over to the State Department quite all of her work-related emails.
While that may not serve as a surprise, one email in particular was particularly interesting — an email to her aide Huma Abedin, which the Daily Caller calls “cryptic.”
Her campaign spokesman, Brian Fallon, told Associated Press that “Secretary Clinton had some emails with Huma that Huma did not have, and Huma had some emails with Secretary Clinton that Secretary Clinton did not have.” In one of these emails, Abedin asked Clinton if she wanted to move to a state.gov email account, and while she’s open to it, she’s concerned about leaks.
“I don’t want any risk of the personal being accessible,” Clinton wrote in a now widely reported email.
That November, 2010, email was used in the State Department’s Office of the Inspector General’s condemnation of the former secretary’s security and record-keeping practices. Although it is possible that Clinton failed to turn over the email by accident, it is unlikely. And it’s not the only one.
“There are instances, and they’re identified in the OIG report, where people are aware of emails that involved her that she did not turn over,” said a State Department official.
You don’t say.
State Department spokesman John Kirby said: “While this exchange was not part of the approximately 55,000 pages provided to the State Department by former Secretary Clinton, the exchange was included within the set of documents Ms. Abedin provided the department in response to our March 2015 request.”
But given that Clinton was legally obligated to turn over copies of all work-related email to the State Department upon her departure, why has it taken so long for this information to come forth?
