• Hillary’s Claim That She Used Only One Personal Email Account While at State… Also a Lie

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lied to the House committee investigating the 2012 Benghazi terror attack by stating that she only used one private email account during her tenure as secretary of state.

    Emails published by the New York Times Monday prove the Clinton used more than one private email address during her time as secretary of state, contradicting her previous claims.

    The Republican National Committee discovered that that multiple emails were sent from the “hrod17@clintonemail.com” address and the emails were sent using the private email server set up by Clinton while she was secretary of state.

    Clinton’s attorney, David Kendall, stated in a letter to told Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), in response to a subpoena from the Benghazi Select Committee, that that particular address had not “existed during Secretary Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State.”

    Kendall additionally states in the letter that “Secretary Clinton used one email account when corresponding with anyone, from Department officials to friends and family.”

    “Secretary Clinton used one email account during her tenure at State (with the exception of her first weeks in office while transitioning from an email account she had previously used),” it said. “In March 2013, Gawker published the email address she used while Secretary, and so she had to change the address on her account.”

    Emails records show that this was not the case, as correspondence was sent from the above stated address in both 2011 and 2012 and Clinton served as secretary of state from Jan. 2009 to Feb. 2013.

    Republican National Chairman Reince Priebus tweeted Monday evening that the news proved Clinton “misled public about the use of only one secret email address.”

    Clinton is already facing backlash for violating federal rules by exclusively using her private “hdr22@clintonemail.com” account and a private email server to conduct all of her official business while she was secretary of state.

    She said she deleted more than 30,000 “personal” emails after she alone decided which emails on her private email server were “personal” or “work-related.” She also reportedly wiped her private email server clean, according to Rep. Gowdy.
