Hillary Clinton just made a rather astonishing admission.
At the Tuesday afternoon news conference in which she attempted to dismiss concerns about her use of a private email system for official business, Clinton revealed she deleted about 30,000 messages.
She characterized the messages that were erased as personal correspondence and said she had “no reason to save them.”
“In going through the emails, there were over 60,000 in total, sent and received. About half were work-related and went to State Department, and about half were personal that were not in any way related to my work,” Clinton said. “I had no reason to save them, but that was my decision because federal guidelines are clear … For any government employee it is that government employees responsibility to determine what’s personal and what’s work related.”
