According to new reports, “a congressional committee sent a letter to Hillary Clinton more than two years ago asking whether she used a private email account as secretary of state, but she ignored the inquiry.” The Daily Caller,
California U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa, then the chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, sent letters on Dec. 13, 2012 to 18 top-ranking Obama administration officials, including Clinton, after it was revealed that the administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency and other federal officials had used private email accounts and aliases to conduct government business.
“Have you or any senior agency official ever used a personal email account to conduct official business?” Issa wrote Clinton in the letter, according to The Times. “If so, please identify the account used.”
Issa also sought information on the State Department’s policies pertaining to how the agency force employees to comply with internal email policies…
Issa asked the letter’s recipients to respond by Jan. 7, 2013. Clinton did not respond and resigned from office on Feb. 1, 2013. An acting assistant secretary at the State Department responded to Issa nearly two months later, on March 27, but did not address questions about Clinton’s email activities.
