In 2012, Hillary Clinton Was Directly Asked by Congress About Any Private Email Accounts; She Didn't Answer

Our Evasive Evita.

Hillary Rodham Clinton was directly asked by congressional investigators in a December 2012 letter whether she had used a private email account while serving as secretary of state, according to letters obtained by The New York Times.

But 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.

The query was posed to Mrs. Clinton in a Dec. 13, 2012, letter from Representative Darrell Issa, the Republican chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. Mr. Issa was leading an investigation into how the Obama administration handled its officials' use of personal email.

"Have you or any senior agency official ever used a personal email account to conduct official business?" Mr. Issa wrote to Mrs. Clinton. "If so, please identify the account used."

...

A spokesman for the State Department declined on Tuesday to answer questions about why it had not addressed Mr. Issa's question about whether Mrs. Clinton or senior officials used personal email accounts.

Meanwhile, Cathy Young writes that Hillary Clinton will be tempted to play the Sexism Card on every criticism. But she shouldn't.

Already, a group that calls itself HRC Super Volunteers has warned that it will be "watching, reading, listening and protesting coded sexism." But such complaints are likely to hurt Clinton's quest for the White House -- and the advancement of women in politics in general -- far more than they help.

...

[N]ot every insult directed at a woman is misogynist. And the examples of subtle sexism offered by those watchful Clinton volunteers don't even rise to the level of particular nastiness. Here's the group's list of suspect words and phrases sent out to the media: polarizing, calculating, disingenuous, insincere, ambitious, inevitable, entitled, overconfident, secretive, will do anything to win, represents the past, and out of touch.

...

Hypervigilance against the smallest possible gender bias can only make a candidate and her campaign look thin-skinned -- and invite charges of playing the gender card to deflect criticism. Even letting the occasional sexist insult slide is better than crying sexism.

Cathy Young is right -- not every insult directed at this dirty old whore is sexism, so Hillary needs to just shut her rancid cockgobbler.
