Between Hillary Clinton’s campaign team and her lawyer, they left absolutely zero doubt that the former Secretary of State had one email address during her tenure. They were militant in their convictions about the certainty of this fact and they were indignant towards anyone who would remotely suggest otherwise. As it turns out, they were either wrong or lying.
The New York Times published dated emails clearly showing that Clinton did have more than one email address and that it was used for official State Department business. In fact, the published emails talked a lot about Libya, the country at the center of one of Clinton’s most controversial discussion points.
Attorney David Kendall, in response to an inquiry by Representative Trey Gowdy, wrote:
The subpoena requests production of any documents sent from or received by the e-mail addresses “email@example.com” or “firstname.lastname@example.org.” As explained in my March 4, 2015 e-mail to your Staff Director and certain others, “email@example.com” is not an address that existed during Secretary Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State.
Somehow, Clinton was able to make heavy use of an email address that didn’t exist. Thankfully, it’s lack of existence didn’t prevent her or others from using it for discussing foreign policy and national security.
