Another Hillary lie: She had second secret email address she claimed didn’t exist

Another Hillary lie: She had second secret email address she claimed didn’t exist

At this point in time (as they are fond of saying inside the Beltway), it might be easiest for presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton to turn over to Congress a list of dates on which she told the truth. Judging from the latest revelation in the Emailgate saga, it is beginning to appear as though that list could fit on a single page, double-spaced.

From the New York Post:

A second secret email address used by Hillary Rodham Clinton while she was secretary of state was revealed Monday.

The email address, published by The New York Times, was used in exchanges between Clinton and longtime adviser Sydney Blumenthal, and is from the same private email server that was uncovered earlier this year.

“Fyi. The idea of using private security experts to arm the opposition should be considered,” Clinton wrote Blumenthal from the ­email address HRod17@clintonemail.com.

A mere two months ago, Clinton’s office swore under oath that the only private email address she used during her tenure as secretary of state was hdr22@clintonemail.com.

In a 2015 letter to Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), Clinton’s lawyer [David Kendall] acknowledged that the HRod17 email address existed, but stated explicitly that it was “not an address that existed during Secretary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state.”

But the time stamp and “From” line of am email Clinton sent during her time at State to her deputy chief of staff , Jake Sullivan, reveal that Kendall’s statement was inaccurate:

This revelation of a second email address raises new questions about Clinton’s transparency as well as about her relationship with Blumenthal, who was not working at State at the time but was advising American contractors that sought to do business in war-torn Libya.

It will be interesting to see how Clinton deals with this latest hurdle and whether it impacts at all the decision of Democratic voters to go ahead with coronation or demand a candidate who at least occasionally tells the truth.
