Hillary Clinton press conference on email scandal

Hillary Clinton used a private e-mail account to conduct State Department business for “convenience” but has since released all e-mails related to her work as secretary of State, she said Tuesday at a press confernce.

“Looking back, it would have been better for me to use two separate phones and two separate e-mail accounts,” Clinton said at a news conference following a speech at a U.N. conference on women’s economic status. “I thought using one (mobile) device would be simpler. Obviously, it hasn’t worked out that way.”

Clinton said she went “above and beyond” what she was required to do regarding preserving e-mails from the personal account she used on a private server.

Clinton said she did not discuss classified information on her personal e-mail. “I have no doubt we have done exactly what we should have done,” she said.

Clinton turned over 30,490 e-mails to the State Department last fall at the department’s request, just under half of the 62,320 total e-mails she sent or received as Secretary of State.

“I trust the American people to make their decisions about political and public matters and I feel that I’ve taken unprecedented steps to provide these work-related emails,” she said. “They’re going to be in the public domain, and I think that Americans will, you know, find that interesting and I look forward to having that discussion.”

Clinton said she used a private e-mail server that was installed in her home originally for the use of former president Bill Clinton.

Hillary Clinton insisted that there were “numerous safeguards” in place and there were “no security breaches.”
