Hillary Clinton took a major blow today when the State Department’s inspector general released a report which found that while she was secretary of state, she did not comply with the agency’s federal policies on public records because of her use of a private email server, according to POLITICO.
The report, which Clinton and her top aides, to include Huma Abedin, did not cooperate with, discovered that there are “systematic weaknesses” inside the State Department, but specifically called out Clinton for her use of a private email and email server which operated out of her Chappaqua, New York home.
“Therefore, Secretary Clinton should have preserved any Federal records she created and received on her personal account by printing and filing those records with the related files in the Office of the Secretary,” the report, obtained by POLITICO, states.
“At a minimum, Secretary Clinton should have surrendered all emails dealing with Department business before leaving government service and, because she did not do so, she did not comply with the Department’s policies that were implemented in accordance with the Federal Records Act,” the report continues.
The inspector general report is the latest upset for Clinton’s presidential campaign, as the FBI is still investigating the use of her private email and private email server.
Following the release of the damaging news, Twitter erupted with calls for Clinton to be indicted on the grounds that she violated federal law.
