Clinton on email controversy: a ‘drip, drip, drip’ of revelations

The foundation stopped raising money from foreign governments when Hillary Clinton became secretary of state in 2009 but resumed after she left the administration in 2013. Among the examples were several notables easily recognized by NPQ readers: Arianna Huffington chose a “thought leaders” program in Aspen, Colorado over CGI; invited to receive an award for his work on AIDS, Elton John declined; Mark Zuckerberg claimed a scheduling conflict; Federal Research chairperson Janet Yellen, offered the platform to talk about income inequity, declined, with a Fed spokesperson explaining that no sitting Fed chair has ever attended a CGI meeting; and economist Thomas Piketty, also invited to talk about income inequality, said, “I nearly never go to this kind of meeting, simply because I want to concentrate on my work!”


Clinton, one of the most popular Democrats in the country, said he no longer considers himself an expert on politics because he hasn’t run for office for two decades.

“It was frankly, uncomfortable to have so many people asking me and my saying, I’m waiting and waiting and waiting”, she said.

American author Edward Klein revealed in his new book titled “Unlikeable” how Bill Clinton asked his old director friend Steven Spielberg to make Hillary Clinton more “likeable” during 2008 presidential race.

Facing a barrage of questions Sunday morning from Meet The Press anchor Chuck Todd, Hillary Clinton brought back an old tactic from the Clinton playbook: blame the messenger.

Clinton said Sunday that she was not directly involved in her lawyers’ review of her e-mail server.

Earlier this month, Bill Clinton filled in for his wife at fundraisers in Chicago after a scheduling conflict led her to cancel.

In fact, State contacted Clinton in the summer of 2014 upon learning that she had exclusively used a private server to conduct business during her time as the nation’s top diplomat.


“She said she was sorry that her personal email caused all this confusion”. The Hillary defended her husband’s remarks, “I love my husband and, you know, he does get upset when I am attacked. I’d like it if I could outlive every man in my family and be one of them, but we’ll see”. The State Department are describing the number of emails discovered as a handful. These emails were handed over to the House Select Committee on Benghazi and they will be made public. The State Department informed Judge Rudolph Contreras about the submissions in a court brief filed on Friday, September 18. All of them turned out to be not true – that was the outcome. “I wasn’t that focused on my email account to be clear here”. The email had an update from “Africa Command of the Department of Defense” a Clinton aide wrote the email and forwarded it to Abedin should have been marked as classified.
