State Hillary Clinton broke her two-day silence since news of her use of a personal email address during her tenure as secretary of state surfaced, tweeting, that she has asked the State Department to release the emails.
Clinton tweeted, “I want the public to see my email.” “I asked State to release them. They said they will review them for release as soon as possible.”
No matter what happens, Benghazi truthers and her critics (mainly Republicans) will say she engaged in a cover-up of sorts. In other words, she is only releasing those emails she wants the public to see. Personally, I believe this wasn’t the smartest thing she did and it may come back to hurt her if she chooses to run.
I want the public to see my email. I asked State to release them. They said they will review them for release as soon as possible.

More from Politico: “The State Department will review for public release the emails provided by Secretary Clinton to the Department, using a normal process that guides such releases,” State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf emailed reporters shortly after Clinton’s tweet. “We will undertake this review as quickly as possible; given the sheer volume of the document set, this review will take some time to complete.”
