State Department: Clinton email practices ‘not acceptable’

Hillary Clinton might think doing State Department business on her own private server is no big deal.  The State Department? They say it was ‘not acceptable.’


Joyce Barr, the agency’s chief freedom of information officer, made the comment under questioning from Republican senators who used a Senate Judiciary hearing on open records laws to attack Clinton over her email practices.

Sen. John Cornyn of Texas said that Clinton’s approach amounted to a “premeditated and deliberate” attempt to avoid open records requirements.

Sen. Thom Tillis of North Carolina said that anyone who took such an approach should be fired, and asked Barr whether it would be considered acceptable.

Barr said she wasn’t aware what Clinton was doing, but the State Dept has made it clear to all employees that all official business be done on their servers. She also called the backlog of open records requests – 18,000 of them – unacceptable.
