After days of controversy surrounding the use of personal email for all of her official State Department Business, former Secretary Hillary Clinton is breaking her silence.
Late Wednesday night Clinton sent out a tweet saying she has asked the State Department to release her emails.
I want the public to see my email. I asked State to release them. They said they will review them for release as soon as possible.— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) March 5, 2015
As soon as possible? How about Clinton, who has access to all of her emails thanks to running private server from her house, releases them herself? And if she really wants the public to read her emails, she should do it now.
State Department Spokeswoman Marie Harf, who has defended Clinton's use of private email for official business, said early this morning that the review will "take some time."
"The State Department will review for public release the emails provided by Secretary Clinton to the Department, using a normal process that guides such releases. We will undertake this review as quickly as possible; given the sheer volume of the document set, this review will take some time to complete," Harf said in a statement.
Yeah, some time to "delete." In the meantime the House Select Committee on Benghazi, headed by Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) has subpoenaed Clinton for her emails as part of their ongoing investigation into the 9/11/2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya.
