Hillary Clinton has officially submitted her answers in writing under oath to the new questions the judge ordered her to answer. The questioning was during her tenure as Secretary of State over her email scandal.
The Federal District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan, order Hillary Clinton to answer the new questions for her email scandal. The questions included details on who was behind the private email server use and when did it become operational.
Clinton responded that the private server was used for convenience purposes.
Hillary Clinton’s full response,
Subject to and without waiving the forgoing objections, Secretary Clinton answers as follows: As Secretary Clinton prepared in late 2008/early 2009 to serve as Secretary of State, she was aware that President Clinton’s office had set up an e-mail system, but she had no role in this process. Secretary Clinton knew that President Clinton’s staff had recently upgraded that system. Secretary Clinton does not know what equipment that system used, how it was created, who decided that the system needed to be upgraded, or who else had accounts on the system. Secretary Clinton believes that one of the President’s aides, Justin Cooper, set up the system. Secretary Clinton decided to use a clintonemail.com account on the system for the purpose of convenience. Secretary Clinton recalls that the clintonemail.com account was created in early 2009. Although Secretary Clinton does not have specific knowledge of the details of the creation of the account, the “domain,” or the “domain name,” her best understanding is that Mr. Cooper set it up.
