Hillary Clinton Runs Away From Question About Why She Deleted Emails


Hillary Clinton finally broke her 40,000-minute shunning of the media on Tuesday when she fielded questions for approximately five minutes.

Once Clinton was asked whether she regretted deleting thousands of emails from her private server without allowing government officials to review them, however, she clammed up.

Clinton had just said she wanted the public to be able to see all of her emails "as soon as possible." She encouraged the State Department to do whatever they can to release emails as quickly as possible. When a follow up question was asked, she immediately retreated with her hand in the air.

"Do you regret deleting 32,000 other emails?"

"Do you regret deleting 32,000 other emails?"

"Do you regret deleting 32,000 other emails?"

A reporter shouted the question three times, raising his voice each time.

Clinton has yet to address a multitude of questions regarding her use of a private email account and server in violation of the Federal Records Act and designed to avoid FOIA requests.
