The New York Times reports that Hillary Clinton only used a personal email account as Sec. of State which may have broken federal regulations that officials’ correspondence be retained as part of the agency’s record.
The Times states that Mrs. Clinton did not have a government email address during her four-year tenure at the State Department. “Her aides took no actions to have her personal emails preserved on department servers at the time, as required by the Federal Records Act.”
Two months ago, in response to a new State Department effort to comply with federal record-keeping practices, Mrs. Clinton’s advisers reviewed tens of thousands of pages of her personal emails and decided which ones to turn over to the State Department. “All told, 55,000 pages of emails were given to the department,” according to the Times.
