Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said Friday that the discovery of new work emails that Hillary Clinton failed to turn over to the State Department raised even further questions about the Democratic frontrunner's fitness to occupy the White House.
"Hillary Clinton stated under penalty of perjury that she turned over all work-related emails on her secret server, but now it appears that is not the case," Priebus said. "This discrepancy raises serious questions and fits a pattern of dishonesty on the part of Hillary Clinton, her campaign, and the State Department designed to hide the truth."
The Obama administration said Friday that officials had discovered emails that Clinton had failed to turn over when she provided what she said was the full record of official correspondence during her four years as the nation's top diplomat.
The emails were exchanged with retired Army Gen. David Petraeus when he headed the military's U.S. Central Command, responsible for running the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
They began before Clinton entered office and continued into her first days at the State Department. They largely involved personnel matters and did not appear to contain classified material, officials said.
Their existence, however, challenged Clinton's claim that she had handed over all of her work emails from her private email account.
The documents, first discovered by the Defense Department, were then passed on to the State Department's inspector general.
"Once again, Hillary Clinton has shown that she cannot be taken at her word and that she cannot be trusted in the White House," Priebus said.
