That was a mistake


Hillary Clinton is right to have apologised over ‘email-gate’


On Tuesday, wannabe President of the United States of America Hillary Clinton took to Facebook to explain her position over the ongoing saga relating to her use of an official email account for personal purposes. She was honest, clear and regretful and should be commended for having owned up for the mistake she made.

In the statement, Mrs Clinton remarked:


I wanted you to hear this directly from me:


Yes, I should have used two email addresses, one for personal matters and one for my work at the State Department. Not doing so was a mistake. I’m sorry about it, and I take full responsibility.


It’s important for you to know a few key facts. My use of a personal email account was above board and allowed under the State Department’s rules. Everyone I communicated with in government was aware of it. And nothing I ever sent or received was marked classified at the time.


As this process proceeds, I want to be as transparent as possible. That’s why I’ve provided all of my work emails to the government to be released to the public, and why I’ll be testifying in public in front of the Benghazi Committee later next month.


I know this is a complex story. I could have—and should have—done a better job answering questions earlier. I’m grateful for your support, and I’m not taking anything for granted.


I understand that you may have more questions, and I am going to work to keep answering them. If you want to read more, including my emails themselves, please go here.


Thank you, Hillary


In total, Clinton has turned over 55,000 pages of emails at the State Department’s request whilst the FBI has also taken possession of the server that she resisted giving up until last month.


Commenting on the statement, David Axelrod, a former top campaign adviser to President Barack Obama, told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer:


“Her answers have evolved over time and have prolonged this story. She’s trying to bring this thing to an end so she can be heard on other subjects, but she needs a consistent answer”.


Axelrod has a point but given Clinton has now conceded that she did make a mistake, it is now simply time that this sideshow moved on.

    1. It is expedient to make an apology when one is forced to, and she was by her dwindling support in the polls. Let’s not forget that thousands of emails were scrubbed by her assistants before she handed over anything. This woman is not to be trusted, let alone admired.

    2. No it’s not time to move on! … Why did she take so long to apologise? … Why did she take so long to turn over her server to the FBI? … Why was the server just not taken as it surely belonged to the government as a piece of work equipment? … Surely it had to be work equipment if she had no personal email address? … Is the last statement even true? She is telling the whole world she had just one email address and it was a work one!

      She says she has handed over 55,000 work emails, but if they were work emails, surely they went through the government servers, so wouldn’t have needed handing over, would they?
      What about personal emails? She hasn’t handed them over? And in realistic terms, she has no personal emails if she only has a work email address, by law all emails sent on a works email address are in fact work emails and not personal!

      Why has this lying, two-faced woman been allowed to dictate to the FBI, the speed of their investigation, why did she have her server wiped if she had nothing to hide? We know she had something to hide it she would have handed everything over straight away and not had the server wiped clean!

      Only a liar and someone who was hiding something would act like this cretin has done!

    3. This arrogant, mendacious, charmless woman considers herself to be ‘above ordinary folk’ and that rules do not apply to her. Her belated apology has been forced upon her by polling results. Given the choice she would have followed the route of her IT aide and ‘pleaded the Fifth.’

      Her behaviour while in office as Secretary of State demonstrated her incompetence and showed how she seriously compromised national security. She was loathed by her Secret Service detail for her appalling treatment of men and women who, literally, would ‘take a bullet’ to protect her.

      The Benghazi killings, inaction and cover up will feature in some detail as her campaign develops and will be yet another reason why she should not and hopefully will not become president of the United States.
