Anti-Hillary folks, there is bad news. State Dept. Says There Was No Policy Against Private Email.
On CNN’s New Day, State Department spokesman John Kirby said, “We have said in the past, Chris that there was no policy prohibiting the use of a private email account here at the State Department, and that is still a fact.
Oh no! Facts. There was no policy against using a private email account when Mrs. Clinton was Secretary of State. And the State Department has said this repeatedly but folks keep ignoring this FACT.
Now, obviously, we have policies in place now that highly discourage that, and you are supposed to use your government account so that there is a constant, permanent record of it, but at the time she was not violating policy
New policies somehow do not apply retroactively. No policy when Mrs. Clinton was SOS. No policy at all. She violated no policy because there was no policy to violate.
And, in fact, Colin Powell used one. And, SOS Clinton followed the process that SOS Powell set up.
How sad. There just isn't any "there" there. All that GOP angst and hyperbole.
