A source close to Hillary Clinton tells CBS News that the former secretary of state will speak publicly about her use of a private email account, rather than a government address while she was secretary of state.
First Read: “But Hillary needs to do something more than answer questions; she needs to take action (like give the State Department full control over her email server). No matter what she says, she’s not going to please Republicans and many members of the political press corps. But WHO she needs to satisfy are Democrats — and give them something they can use. And action could go a long way on that front. ”
Rick Klein: “If this is the new Hillary, maybe you also believe this has been a good week for Hillary Clinton and her non-campaign. Some veterans of her last campaign are as baffled as the news media at her handling of the story about her e-mails; ‘aggressively and unresponsively’ is how The Washington Post‘s Dan Balz characterized the way her team has handled questions. Clinton insiders are right in their complaint that no amount of explaining will ever be sufficient. Yes, there’s a different standard for the Clintons – driven by decades of history, suspicions, and rivalries. It’s also driven by her fame – the same fame that allows her to be the frontrunner for the 2016 nomination without the trouble of actually campaigning. Does anyone think this will be the last story like this for the 2016 cycle? Does anyone think the next one should be handled the same way?”Save to Favorites
