White House Chief of Staff Valerie Jarrett admitted Wednesday that the White House had issued guidance to cabinet secretaries recommending they use government email for official businessguidance that then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ultimately ignored.
Werent there guidelines from the White House to all cabinet secretaries to use government email? MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell asked Jarrett at an event sponsored by the Aspen Institute.
Well, yes there were. Yeah, absolutely, Jarrett said.
Obviously, we want to make sure we preserve all government records, so there was guidance given that government business should be done on government emails and that if you did use a private email it should be turned over, Jarrett said.
Jarrett then offered a partial defense of Clintons behavior.
Shes working hard to comply with making sure everything is pursuant to the Federal Records Act, Jarrett said.
Clinton did not turn over emails from her private account until December 2014, two years after her tenure as secretary of state concluded and two months after the State Department sent her a letter asking for her emails.
When Clinton did turn over her emails, she did so at the request of the State Department, not on her own initiativeand only after permanently (or rather, permanently) deleting tens of thousands of emails from the private server.
The State Department received 55,000 pages of emails from Clinton. The emails were printed hard copies that were not digitally searchable, a lawyerly move many think was an attempt to stymie investigators and Freedom of Information Act requests.
The Clinton camp maintained control of Clintons private server until it was seized by the FBI as part of an ongoing investigation into the classified information on Clintons server.
The knives sharpen...
This so creates distance since there are known emails from WH.gov email accounts.
Wait, she’s a high level exec branch appointee and they “recommend” she use official email accounts???
Yeah, right. Where’s >that< email?
Guilty!!!! Buhhhhn her!!!!!
This was an Obama/Jarrett setup from day one to take down Hill in 2016. I can’t say I don’t enjoy seeing Hillary (and Bill) knocked around by them one more time. Only problem is, they are worse.
HilLIARy meet bus
Shut up Jerret you twit.... And I wanted to use a different vowel.
I’ll bet that ****h Clinton didn’t appreciate Jarrett telling her what to do. LOL! Cat fight!
Hillary’s a typical white woman like Barry’s grandmother.
What is that picture of her from? It looks as if she is trying to look human and squeeze out a tear buuuuuttttt just can’t manage.
Why didn’t they relieve her of duty and have her arrested for non compliance? Probably because they just made this new story up.
So the Obama ‘16 campaign has officially begun!
Jarrett was not under oath so she did not have to spill the beans to Mitchell.
Careful with that Axe Eugene
