Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the State Department have provided incomplete and misleading accounts of when and why the department requested copies of work-related emails that she maintained on a private server.
This week, “State of the Union” anchor Jake Tapper discusses Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s recent claim that “people in the government knew that I was using a personal account.”
Hillary Clinton directly addressed questions in recent interviews about her exclusive use of a personal email account and server to conduct government business as secretary of state. But her answers only reveal part of the story.
Who’s responsible for withdrawing all U.S. combat troops from Iraq at the end of 2011? Jeb Bush says President Obama is to blame, while Hillary Clinton’s campaign says President George W. Bush signed the agreement that set the withdrawal date.
Hillary Clinton has continued to twist Jeb Bush’s words, suggesting that he thinks “the nurse who stands on her feet all day or the trucker who drives all night” needs to “work longer hours.” Bush has said he was talking about part-time workers who want full-time hours.
Hillary Clinton falsely claimed that “all” GOP presidential candidates “don’t want to provide a path to citizenship,” and she distorted the facts on her use of a private email account.
Two Republican presidential candidates claim the so-called “birther” movement originated with the Hillary Clinton campaign in 2008. Some of her ardent supporters pushed the theory, but there is no evidence Clinton or her campaign had anything to do with it.
