Hillary Clinton E-Mails To Be De-Classified By State Department

The State Department will announce a timetable Tuesday for the release of more of the 55,000 pages of emails sent and received by Hillary Clinton on her private server, writes NBC News.

The State Department is under court order to make the scheduled releases public. A federal judge has ordered that the documents be released on a “rolling basis” every 60 days.


NYT: Hillary Announces Candidacy


Hillary Rodham Clinton will seek the presidency for a second time, said one of her top advisers Sunday.  It ended two years of speculation and coy denials and immediately established herself as the likely 2016 Democratic nominee.

The announcement came in e-mails from John Podesta, Mrs. Clinton’s campaign chairman, states the New York Times.

“I wanted to make sure you heard it first from me – it’s official: Hillary’s running for president,” the e-mail from Podesta reads. It goes on to say that Mrs. Clinton will meet with voters in Iowa and will host a formal kickoff event next month.

The announcement by Hillary’s campaign chairman began what could be one of the least contested races, without an incumbent, for the Democratic presidential nomination in recent history, according to the New York Times.  It would be a stark contrast to the 2008 primaries, when Mrs. Clinton ended up in a long and expensive battle ultimately won by Barack Obama.

John Boehner Expected to Announce New House Investigation Into Hillary Clinton’s E-Mail Practices

House Speaker John Boehner is expected to announce this week a new “special investigation” into Hillary Clinton’s email practices as Secretary of State, including her admission that more than 31,000 emails were destroyed because she determined them to be personal, top House Republicans told ABC News.

This investigation is separate from the ongoing Benghazi investigation., claims the Huffington Post.

During a news conference last week, Clinton did not describe the details of how the review of her email was conducted, but said it was “thorough” and that she went “above and beyond” what she was required to do in turning over many of her emails to the State Department.

ABC’s “This Week” program said top Republicans had briefed it about Hillary’s investigation, but did not give details.

Clinton, expected to launch her campaign soon for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016, has faced a storm of criticism over her email habits.

She used a personal email address instead of a government one, as well as a personal server, during the period she was secretary of state, from 2009 to 2013.

Clinton told a news conference on Tuesday her private email address was a “convenience” so she would not have to carry two mobile devices.

She sent and received 62,320 emails while at the State Department.  After a review process, 30,490 were provided to the State Department at its request, a Clinton spokesman said last week, according to the Huffington Post.  The remaining 31,830 were private and personal records, the spokesman said.

Did Hillary Clinton Use Personal Email For Government Business?


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.
