• How Hillary Clinton Refuses To Apologize For Email Choices

    Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton on Friday declined to apologize for her decision to exclusively use a private email account and server while serving as secretary of state,

    MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell asked Clinton, in one of the few interviews she has done since she began her bid for the presidency, if she was sorry that she had disregarded traditional protocol and routed her work email through a private email account and server.

    “It wasn’t the best choice,” Clinton acknowledged. She also insisted, as she has done frequently on the campaign trail, that everything she did was legal and in accordance with the State Department regulations.

    “People in the government knew I was using a personal account,” Clinton said. “But it would have been better if I had two separate accounts to begin with, and I’m doing all I can now to be transparent about what I had on my work related emails. They will be coming out. I wish it was faster. I’m frustrated it’s taking a while, but there’s a process that needs to be followed.”

    The former First Lady did, however, apologize for the confusion and controversy surrounding that decision.

    “At the end of the day, I am sorry that this has been confusing to people and has raised a lot of questions, but there are answers to all these questions,” Clinton said. “And I take responsibility, and it wasn’t the best choice.”

    Clinton will face the Select Committee on Benghazi in October, and the email controversy will likely be a central focus of Republicans at the hearing.

    The FBI is investigating the security of the email set-up, including whether the server was ever compromised by foreign nationals.

    There is already an abundance of evidence to charge Hillary Clinton with quid pro quo corruption. Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who was the former federal Attorney for the Southern District of New York, has stated that Clinton should have been indicted already.
