On Tuesday afternoon Hillary Clinton finally held a press conference to answer questions about why she didn’t use the government provided email system but instead chose to use her own private (and less secure) email. Amazingly, it boiled down to one thing for Hillary… the “inconvenience” of carrying two electronic devices.
The former secretary of state told reporters that she decided to use a single, private e-mail account because at the time, her BlackBerry couldn’t handle two different e-mail accounts. Carrying two phones, she said, would have been inconvenient.
“When I got to work as secretary of state, I opted for convenience to use my personal e-mail account, which was allowed by the State Department, because I thought it would be easier to carry just one device for my work and for my personal e-mails instead of two.”
However, her “reason” (seriously, can we even call this a legit reason?) for doing what she did doesn’t hold water when you consider what she just told a crowd at a conference just a few weeks ago.
Here is Mrs. Clinton telling the world that she currently carries TWO devices!
Unbelievably, Hillary just told everyone that she deleted a bunch of emails because they were personal and she didn’t think she needed to keep them! Which is exactly why we wanted you using the public email system, Hillary!! So we could control which emails got deleted and we would KNOW that you didn’t delete anything that shouldn’t be deleted!
