Clinton has come under fire for exclusively using her own ‘clintonemail.com’ address while she was America’s top diplomat. 

She admitted during a news conference at the United Nations that she deleted more than 30,000 emails she decided were personal in nature and unrelated to her job. 

Separately from claims by  The Weekly Standardthe gossip website Gawker reported that Huma Abedin and Phillippe Reines, Clinton’s top communications strategist, had the private addresses as well.


Abedin married into a separate scandal when she wed former congressman Anthony Weiner, whose sexting exploits landed him on the front pages which led to his departure from Congress.

Longtime press aide Philippe Reines (left) insists that he did not have a private Clinton-linked email address, but Gawker reported otherwise.

Watch Stephen F. Hayes’ report on Fox News that Hillary Clinton’s top two aides, Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills, also used personal emails while working for the secretary of state at the State Department:

“Two of Hillary Clinton’s top aides used personal email while they were employed at the State Department, Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills. Hillary Clinton’s chief of staff. The State Department has evidence of this.

“And the question I think become: were they emailing with Hillary Clinton from their personal email addresses to her personal email address about State Department business, about Benghazi, including sensitive classified information?Those are questions that I think that Trey Gowdy and the House Benghazi committee is going to want to look at very carefully.”

Hayes went on to explain, “This is the key point. Yesterday, she said look, when I was doing State Department business I was emailing to people who on the receiving end of her emails had .gov email addresses and therefore the emails, the documents would have been retained. What this suggests is that others were using non-.gov emails, their personal emails, and if they communicated with her in that manner those emails with her will be lost unless they’re compelled to provide them.”
