Another Clinton misstatement of fact about her email account at State Department

Washington Examiner:
A collection of records made public Wednesday indicates State Department officials attempted to give Hillary Clinton a government email account to use while she was secretary of state, contradicting previous claims from agency officials that no such account was ever set up.

But the email account, SSHRC@state.gov, went unused after a State Department official warned one of Clinton's aides in Aug. 2011 that messages sent to and from the address would be "subject to [Freedom of Information Act] searches."

The records, which were referenced but not published in an inspector general report released last month, were obtained by conservative watchdog Judicial Watch.

In a Nov. 2010 email, Huma Abedin, then Clinton's deputy chief of staff, advised the secretary of state to consider opening an official email account after Clinton failed to receive messages from government staff who had been attempting to reach her.

"We should talk about putting you on state email or releasing your email address to the department so you are not going to spam," Abedin wrote.

But Clinton expressed concern that doing so would expose her private email network.

"Let's get separate address or device, but I don't want any risk of the personal being accessible," Clinton replied.
...
Her email story keeps falling apart.  When the FBI  finally gets around to questioning her it will have a lot of material to plow through thanks to the work by outside groups that have forced teh production of State records.

The AP also reports that technical problems with Clinton's email server caused the State Department to have to disable some of its own protection  making it vulnerable to phishing attacks.
