Clinton’s Emails Were Requested “Entirely” Because She Used A Private Server

- October 11, 2015

Throughout The Email Controversy, Clinton Has “Described Her Decision Last Year To Turn Over Thousands Of Work-Related E-Mails As A Response To A Routine-Sounding Records Request.” “Throughout the controversy over her use of a private e-mail system while she was secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton has described her decision last year to turn over thousands of work-related e-mails as a response to a routine-sounding records request.” (Carol D. Leonnig and Rosalind S. Helderman, “State Department’s Account Of E-Mail Request Differs From Clinton’s,” The Washington Post, 9/22/15)

But The State Department’s Explanation “Undercuts” Clinton’s Claim. “But State Department officials provided new information Tuesday that undercuts Clinton’s characterization.” (Carol D. Leonnig and Rosalind S. Helderman, “State Department’s Account Of E-Mail Request Differs From Clinton’s,” The Washington Post, 9/22/15)

  • The State Department Says “The Request Was Not Simply About General Record-Keeping But Was Prompted Entirely By The Discovery That Clinton Had Exclusively Used A Private E-Mail System.” “But State Department officials provided new information Tuesday that undercuts Clinton’s characterization. They said the request was not simply about general record-keeping but was prompted entirely by the discovery that Clinton had exclusively used a private e-mail system. They also said they first contacted her in the summer of 2014, at least three months before the agency asked Clinton and three of her predecessors to provide their e-mails.” (Carol D. Leonnig and Rosalind S. Helderman, “State Department’s Account Of E-Mail Request Differs From Clinton’s,” The Washington Post, 9/22/15)

The Washington Post Headline: “State Department’s Account Of E-Mail Request Differs From Clinton’s” (Carol D. Leonnig and Rosalind S. Helderman, “State Department’s Account Of E-Mail Request Differs From Clinton’s,” The Washington Post, 9/22/15)
