When Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s private email scandal broke, Hillary claimed her using her private e-mail for matters of state was a matter of convenience. She didn’t want to complicate things by carrying two phones.
One of her attorneys had previously denied the existence of this second email address.
“As explained in my March 4th, 2015 email to your Staff Director and certain others, “firstname.lastname@example.org” is not an address that existed during Secretary Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State,” the statement read.
Then, they could no longer deny it, because the New York Times published emails related to Libya, and email@example.com was among the fray. The dates were definitely during Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State.
As an expected political response, Clinton, at a campaign event in Iowa said, “I want those emails out.”
Then there is the Clinton Cash scandal. According to Vox.com, Hillary Clinton financially benefited “personally” from a large speaking fee paid by Corning, Inc., a company that lobbied her during her tenure as Secretary of State.
With all the scandal surrounding Team Hillary, many Democrats are attracted to former Maryland Governor Martin O’ Malley.
O’Malley told CNN that he wants to emphasize his “youthfulness,” and a less scripted, more accessible presidential campaign.
O’Malley even used SnapChat to hint at expected presidential announcement location.
Even Bill Clinton wrote O’Malley in 2002 stating: “I won’t be surprised if you go all the way.”
According to CNN, O’Malley’s campaign is likely to produce several more similar videos leading up to the announcement.
