Make sure that you take a few minutes and read through the PDF link from Judicial Watch. WOW. What a BEEYATCH!!! #NeverHillary. All Day. Every Day.
Newly released records show the State Department provided Hillary Clinton with an official government email address when she was secretary of state but she declined to use it, opting to employ her private setup instead.
Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch obtained email records from Clinton aides, and they show Clinton was against using government email.
Clinton’s email address, according to email sent in August 2011, was SSHRC@state.gov.
“You should be aware that any email would go through the Department’s Infrastructure and subject to FOIA searches,” a State Department employee wrote to Clinton aide, Monica Hanley.
During a 2010 exchange between Clinton and her top aide, Huma Abedin, Clinton complains about her emails not being delivered to other State Department employees with government addresses.
“This is not a good system,” Clinton wrote.
Abedin responded, “We should talk about putting you on state email or releasing your email address to the department so you are not going to spam.”
Clinton’s reply: “Let’s get separate address or device but I don’t want any risk of the personal being accessible.”
Other emails released detail the frustration State Department officials had with Clinton’s private email system. According to a long chain of messages, IT workers instructed state employees to disable their spam and anti-phishing filters, presumably so they could receive messages from Clinton’s address — which came from a clintonemail.com domain.
Another message from a Clinton aide said a hacker tried to gain access to the system.
The man who allegedly set up Clinton’s email system was deposed by Judicial Watch on Wednesday but declined to answer any questions.
