Hillary Clinton’s email server has still more top secret emails on it


The email scandal engulfing Hillary Clinton took another turn for the worse yesterday with even more top secret emails being revealed.

Hillary Clinton continues to be plagued by the email scandal that won’t die. Today the FBI reportedly managed to recover a new set of work-related emails from her private email account – these dealing with Libya and Benghazi, reports Mediaite.

After Hillary’s repeated insistence that she has handed over every such email from her private account, subsequent State Department digital scans have detected a 925-page email chain from her private server that was not originally turned over. They appear to be exchanges with former general David Petraeus during Clinton’s first few days as Secretary of State. Reports indicate that the messages pertain largely to personnel matters, with no classified material having yet been identified. Read more »


Hillary is trying to cauterise the wound – now she’s sorry


As it is becoming clear that the Hillary Clinton campaign neither has the ability to spin the message nor control the continuous fall-out of the private email server that keeps on giving, the only solution left is to go for the big mea culpa and hope the issue peters out in time for it to affect the primaries.

Hillary Clinton has apologised for using a private email server while secretary of state, calling the decision that has dogged her Democratic presidential bid a “mistake”.

The Democratic frontrunner, who is facing eroding support, has long dismissed the email uproar as a manufactured imbroglio.

But in an interview on Tuesday evening (local time), Clinton told ABC’s World News Tonight that she took full responsibility for the episode, which she regretted.

“That was a mistake. I’m sorry about that. I take responsibility,” she told the news network.

Clinton used her private email account and home server in lieu of the official government email system while she served as top diplomat from 2009 to 2013.

Until Tuesday, Clinton had demurred from issuing a direct apology.

“I certainly wish that I had made a different choice,” Clinton said last week, adding that she was “sorry” that the controversy was “confusing” for the public.

“As I look back at it now, even though it was allowed, I should have used two accounts, one for personal emails, one for work-related emails,” Clinton said on Tuesday.

The lingering email saga has weighed on Clinton’s popularity, with a Gallup poll released on Friday showing her favorability rating at 41 percent, compared to 51 percent who view her unfavourably – the lowest level since 1992.
