Watch: Hillary Clinton in 2007 said hidden emails ‘shredded’ the Constitution

Back in 2007, then-Sen, Hillary Clinton railed against the George W. Bush administration in a speech to “Take Back America,” for using secret email accounts, something she herself employed during her entire tenure as secretary of state.

(The email remarks starts about the 7-minute mark.)

“You know, that our Constitution is being shredded,” Clinton said. “We know about the secret wiretaps, we know about the secret military tribunals, we know about the secret White House email accounts.”

And now we know she didn’t mean a word of it.

Clinton not only used a secret email account to conduct official business while serving as secretary of state, she had complete control of the account — the server was located at her Chappaqua, N.Y. home, with Eric Hoteham listed as the customer.

Clinton isn’t the only high-ranking official in the Obama administration to do this.

Lisa Jackson left the Environmental Protection Agency in 2012 under a cloud of suspicion for using a private email account under the name “Richard Windsor” to conduct official business.

The Twitterverse reaction was a mixture of anger and amusement. Here are a few examples:
