In what appears to be a sign that the liberal media is not done with their probe of the latest scandal to embroil Hillary Clinton, The New York Times is once again pouncing on the just-announced Democrat candidate for president over her highly controversial email practices.
For now, at least, the Times has not moved on past the investigative reporting that analysts say has helped to erode the public’s confidence in Mrs. Clinton’s integrity and trustworthiness.
In the most recent of a number of articles about Mrs. Clinton’s use of a private email server for both official and personal communications, the Times reveals that the then-secretary of state ignored congressional investigators in December of 2012 when they asked her directly about her possible use of a private email account.
Hillary gave the brush-off to the official request from the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform headed at the time by Rep. Darrell Issa.
“…Mrs. Clinton did not reply to the letter. And when the State Department answered in March 2013, nearly two months after she left office, it ignored the question and provided no response.”
Fox News reports that the 2012 question posed to Mrs. Clinton was straight-forward and could have been answered with a simple “yes” or “no.”
“The very first question asked by Issa was, ‘Have you or any senior agency official ever used a personal email account to conduct official business? If so, please identify the account used.’”
Still, seven weeks after the date of Issa’s letter — by Mrs. Clinton’s last day as secretary of state on February 1, 2013 — neither Hillary nor any other State Department official had reportedly responded to the question about her use of a non-official email account.
Ignoring, obfuscating, even stonewalling over such matters is nothing new for Hillary Clinton. As the Fox News report goes on to point out: “Last month, the House select committee investigating the 2012 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, subpoenaed all of Clinton’s personal emails. They received no response.”
