Chuck Todd Grills Hillary About Email Chain in Scathing IG Report

Posted: May 27, 2016 8:00 AM

When Hillary Clinton called into MSNBC’s MTP Daily on Thursday, Chuck Todd demanded answers about the scathing new IG report on her emails, which “seemed to contradict many of the things you’ve said,” he began.

Todd brought up one specific email thread from November 2010 in which top aide Huma Abedin informed Clinton that some State Department employees were not receiving the emails she was sending from her personal email address.

“[W]e should talk about putting you on state email or releasing your email address to the department so you’re not going to spam,” Abedin suggested.

In response, Clinton said, “Let’s get separate address or device but I don’t want any risk of the personal being accessible.”

This exchange, Todd said, seems to contract Clinton’s reasoning for why she wanted a private email and a private server.

Thus, he wanted to know what exactly she meant, or, more specifically, what she was worried about—FOIA requests, congressional requests?

“Nobody wants their personal emails made public. That is, I think, a very common if not unanimous feeling among people,” Clinton ultimately said.
