UNITED NATIONS (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton says she opted to use her personal email account while secretary of state because of convenience. She says it “would have been better” to have used two email accounts.
Clinton was answering questions Tuesday for the first time about her email practices as secretary of state.
The possible Democratic presidential candidate said during a news conference on Tuesday that she “fully complied with every rule I was governed by.”
She says she went “above and beyond” what she was required to do as a State Department employee.
Her comments come after days of silence and intensifying calls from Democrats as well as Republicans to address the matter.
