The State Department on Wednesday released about 6,000 more pages of Hillary Clinton’s emails, the latest batch to be made public from the private email account that has plagued her presidential campaign.
The messages were exchanged with retired Gen. David Petraeus when he headed the military’s U.S. Central Command, responsible for running the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. “Perhaps a better approach is to make the point more quietly to legislators through H”, she wrote – with H referencing Clinton. “These are the things that Hillary Clinton is providing substantive policy, and eventually, I know the American people are going to want everybody to start talking about that”. A federal judge has ordered the government to release 15 percent of the 35,000 emails each month.
The email exchange, which came shortly after Google revealed that it suspected Chinese hackers tried to steal passwords of hundreds of Gmail users, including U.S. government officials, gives further insight into Clinton’s decision to forego a government email account while serving as secretary of state. There are less than 10 emails back and forth in total, officials said, and the chain ends on February 1.
Another question is whether any emails were destroyed after the State Department began to ask Clinton to produce them previous year.
But two emails, although not marked classified at the time they were sent, have since been slapped with a “TK” marking, for the “talent keyhole” compartment, suggesting material obtained by spy satellites, according to the inspector general for the intelligence community.
The State Department and other government agencies, during Clinton’s tenure and after, suffered its own series of hacking attacks.
And at least four NEA affiliated state political action committees have voted against an early endorsement of Clinton, including New Hampshire, Massachusetts and the largest NEA PAC, the New Jersey Education Association. “We have also informed Congress of this matter”, he added.
Gregory Angelo, executive director of Log Cabin Republicans, said the email demonstrates Clinton’s lack of commitment to LGBT rights.
Clinton apologized for the organization that was e-mail saying it was permitted but unwise.
In June 2013, about five months after Clinton left office, she turned the server over to a Colorado firm, Platte River Networks. “When I did it, it was allowed, it was above board”.
But she’s the only secretary of state in history that ever said, just release them all, all my work-related e-mails. “There’s only so much that I can control”, she said.
The long-time serving Maryland senator told Clinton about a behind-closed-doors caucus meeting where Democrats expressed frustration.
And why on Earth would Ms. Abedin and Mrs. Clinton recklessly use this unsecure system to discuss foreign affairs and sensitive matters such as the Syria conflict? These were made public as a show of good faith, as the presidential candidate attempted to show that she had done nothing wrong. She initially described her choice as a matter of convenience, but later took responsibility for making a wrong decision. “And if any other department in the government is mentioned in a particular email it has to go to that department, in order for them to be able to clear it. So it’s by nature a cumbersome process”.
