Bill, Hillary Clinton Make Conflicting Claims on Email Use

By    |   Thursday, 12 Mar 2015 10:55 AM

Bill and Hillary Clinton tell divergent public stories about sending email to one another as more questions continue to be raised about the former secretary of state's use of a private server for official business, The New York Post reported.

Bill Clinton's spokesman said Wednesday he never sent emails to his wife. But his remarks stand in contrast to what Hillary Clinton said on Tuesday, when she sought to explain her mixed personal and work correspondence in part by saying that her home server in New York would not be opened for scrutiny because it contained "personal communications from my husband and me."

The Post noted the mounting skepticism of the couple's conflicting statements and the increasing media scrutiny.

The Washington Examiner wrote, "It appears at least one Clinton is not telling the whole truth," while the National Journal said: "She runs into the brick wall of her husband’s own denial."

Seeking more information, The Associated Press sued the State Department over release of the emails on Wednesday, The Washington Times reported, adding that the AP in its lawsuit said the Obama administration had "botched five different open-records requests over the last five years."

Hillary Clinton, a former New York senator and presumed 2016 Democratic presidential candidate, is also likely to face a deeper inquiry from Congress, the Examiner reported.

"She claims everything was unclassified. So none of it should be held back. One hundred percent of it should have been made available to Congress. If 100 percent was unclassified, there should be no redaction," said Rep. Jason Chaffetz, chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.

He told the Examiner that the State Department had been consistently slow in providing responses to Congress. "And obviously they have fallen short of their duty and obligation to provide a complete response."

Chaffetz said he will seek every email, complete and unredacted, that remain available from Clinton, the Examiner said.
