Clinton Made Brazen Decision to use Personal Email

by - April 06, 2015

When Hillary Clinton began using a personal e-mail account to conduct official business as secretary of State, she made a “brazen decision” to flout the law and deny Americans access to records they deserve, according to a panel of open government experts and political watchdogs. What’s more, they say, dozens of officials in and out of the Obama administration must have known about her use of the private e-mail. The panel spoke Tuesday at a presentation hosted by Judicial Watch, a conservative, nonpartisan government watchdog group that has sued the Department of State in an effort to get records related to Clinton’s tenure at Foggy Bottom. The group also has made numerous requests under the Freedom of Information Act, which requires most non-classified government documents, including e-mails, to be open to public scrutiny. Tom Fitton, director of Judicial Watch, says they have been stymied time and again by both Clinton and the State Department in efforts to obtain the former secretary’s correspondence, especially as it relates to the 2012 attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Four Americans died in the attack by Islamic militants, including U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens.
