New Emails Show Clinton Opted to Use Home Phone Over Secure Line

It’s all about convenience for Hillary Clinton. New emails obtained by Judicial Watch reveal that she instructed a top aide to call her on her home phone number after the two had technological difficulties using the secure line. 

“I give up. Call me on my home #,” Clinton told her then chief of staff Cheryl Mills in a February 22, 2009 email after failing to set up a secure communication. 

“I just spoke to ops and called you reg line - we have to wait until we see each other b/c [the] technology is not working,” Mills said in an email sent moments later.

“Pls try again,” Clinton followed up.

The emails, which were obtained as part of a lawsuit against the State Department under the Freedom of Information Act, were not among the more than 30,000 messages already released in recent months.

The previously unreleased Clinton emails date back as far as January 2009 and further contradict statements by Hillary Clinton that, “as far as she knew,” all of her government emails were turned over to the State Department and that she did not use her system until March 18, 2009. The new Clinton emails cover topics such as: the administration’s Iran policy; Obama’s stimulus program; the sharing of “management issues” with “Maggie” Williams, former campaign manager for Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign; confusion over voice mail versus text messages; image coaching from 2008 campaign advisor Doug Hattaway; and a thank you note from Mark Hyman for “opening the door” for a Senate hearing on functional medicine; as well email detailing incoming calls from China and Russia.  The new Clinton documents also include a censored email that shows Clinton and Cheryl Mills were contacted by Maria Haley, a longtime Clinton aide (since deceased) who was implicated the Chinagate scandal.

“This drip, drip of new Clinton emails show Hillary Clinton could not care less about the security of her communications,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “How many other smoking gun emails are Hillary Clinton and her co-conspirators in the Obama administration hiding from the American people?”
