A second secret email address used by Hillary Rodham Clinton while she was secretary of state was revealed Monday.
The email address, published by The New York Times,
was used in exchanges between Clinton and longtime adviser Sydney
Blumenthal, and is from the same private email server that was uncovered
earlier this year.
“Fyi. The idea of using private security experts to arm the
opposition should be considered,” Clinton wrote Blumenthal from the
email address HRod17@clintonemail.com.
The two were discussing strategies to help the opposition rebels oust
Moammar Khadafy in Libya as that country descended into chaos in 2011.
Clinton’s office insisted just two months ago that the only private
email address used by the former secretary of state during her tenure
In a 2015 letter to Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), Clinton’s lawyer
acknowledged that the HRod17 email address existed, but stated
explicitly that it was “not an address that existed during Secretary
Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state.”
The time stamps and content of the messages make clear that this statement was inaccurate, according to the Times report.
The first private email use was seen as a breach of protocol. Clinton’s advisers handed over 55,000 pages of emails to the State Department so they could comply with an investigation. But, according to Vice News, those emails will not be made public until 2016.
Clinton admitted to deleting thousands of others, claiming they were personal.
The revelation of a second email address raises questions about Clinton’s transparency and her relationship with Blumenthal.http://nypost.com/2015/05/19/hillary-clinton-had-a-second-secret-e-mail-address/
