Embattled Hillary Clinton urges State Department to release emails
By Steve Holland WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Democrat Hillary Clinton on Wednesday broke her silence over a budding controversy involving her use of personal email for work when she was secretary of state, saying she wanted the U.S. State Department to release them swiftly. Clinton’s statement was aimed at cooling a political firestorm over allegations that she inappropriately used her personal email for work while secretary of state from 2009 to 2013. The State Department said it will review the emails provided by Clinton “using a normal process that guides such releases.” “We will undertake this review as quickly as possible. Clinton’s tweeted statement came hours after a congressional committee investigating the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on a U.S. diplomatic facility in Benghazi, Libya, issued subpoenas for her emails.
