Hillary Clinton Issues First Comment on Private Email Controversy

Several days after controversy erupted over her use of a private email server during her tenure at the State Department, former Sec. Hillary Clinton finally commented on the matter.

“I want the public to see my email,” she wrote Wednesday evening on Twitter. “I asked State to release them. They said they will review them for release as soon as possible.”

Clinton used the private email, hdr22@clintonemail.com, for all correspondence during her time in the Obama cabinet, using a computer server registered to her home in Upstate New York, a move considered “highly unusual” for a government official of her stature.

It remains unclear whether her use of a personal email server broke federal law, a point of contention in the ongoing conversation about these emails.
