Lack of concern over Fed emails raises questions

Federal officials are required by law to use government email accounts and servers for their official correspondence. It has been known for months that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton broke that law. She used a private account and her personal email server for much of her work.

Last week it was revealed many high-ranking officials in President Barak Obama’s administration knew Clinton was using a private email account improperly. Among them was Rahm Emanuel, who was White House chief of staff at the time.

If some in the administration were not blowing the whistle on Clinton, it raises the question of whether they, too, were breaking the email rule – and may still be doing so.

Members of Congress should investigate.
