"The times" reports Clinton excuse live si used a personal e-mail account to conduct government business as secretary of state noting she didn't even have a government e-mail address during her four-year tenure.

Unclassified Hillary Clinton e-mails should be released." In response to "The times" story a Clinton spokesperson said she abided by both the letter and spirit of the law and, George, while her e-mails were not preserved at the time by the government, the spokesperson said that Mrs. Clinton preserved her own e-mails and when asked years after she left the state department she did turn over those e-mails.
