Hillary Clinton has brushed off questions about her personal email account as secretary of state with jokes. But, it now appears Clinton is changing her tune. Though, of course, that doesn’t mean she is ready to tell the truth. CNN,
Clinton responded with more contrition than she has in the past when asked about her email controversy, even acknowledging that she understands why people care about the issue.
“Well, I know people have raised questions about my email use as secretary of state, and I understand why. I get it,” she said during a press conference at a local community college.
She added, “My use of personal email was allowed by the State Department. It clearly wasn’t the best choice. I should have used two emails — one personal, one for work — and I take responsibility for that decision.”
This is a departure for Clinton, who in past answers has been combative — and at times joked — about whether the issue matters at all.
