RNC Statement On Final Court-Ordered Release Of Hillary Clinton's Emails

- February 29, 2016

WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus released the following statement on today’s court-ordered release of Hillary Clinton’s emails:

“On more than 2,000 occasions, Hillary Clinton recklessly jeopardized our national security and sensitive diplomatic efforts by using a secret, unsecure email server to send and receive classified material, including ‘Top Secret’ intelligence. This was information so sensitive, its exposure potentially put lives at risk.

“Clinton’s unprecedented email arrangement was a clear attempt to skirt government transparency laws and place her political interests ahead of those of the American people. This egregious error in judgment coupled with Clinton’s arrogant and dishonest claims to have followed the rules that she forced all other employees to follow should disqualify her from the presidency.”
