Despite past claims by Hillary Clinton that she only used one email address as secretary of state, previously unseen email records show there was at least one other email address in use.
The New York Times published new emails that were sent using the private email server set up by Clinton while she was secretary of state, and the Republican National Committee discovered that that multiple emails were sent from the “email@example.com” address that Clinton’s attorney’s had previously said do not exist.
In a letter to Rep. Trey Gowdy (R., S.C.) responding to a subpoena from the Benghazi Select Committee, Clinton’s attorney David Kendall wrote that “‘firstname.lastname@example.org’ is not an address that existed during Secretary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state.”
Kendall additionally states in the letter that “Secretary Clinton used one email account when corresponding with anyone, from Department officials to friends and family.”
Emails records show that this was not the case, as correspondence was sent from the above stated address in both 2011 and 2012.
In the prepared statement circulated by Clinton’s team in an attempt to put the email scandal to bed, the belief that Clinton used multiple email accounts was called a “misunderstanding.”
“In fairness to the [Benghazi] Committee, this was an honest misunderstanding,” said the statement from the office of former secretary Clinton. “Secretary Clinton used one email account during her tenure at State.”
