Clinton email policy violated Obama administration guidance
WASHINGTON - Even if Hillary Rodham Clinton's use of a private server to conduct official business as secretary of state was not illegal, it violated Obama administration guidance.
Clinton has yet to explain why she took to unusual step of using her own server and eschewing a State Department email address. That has left the White House, which vowed to run the most open government in history, in the awkward position of having to answer for her electronic secrecy.
For the second day in a row Wednesday, Clinton's emails dominated the White House press briefing. Press secretary Josh Earnest avoiding direct criticism of Clinton while making it clear that administration policy is for government emails to be used for official business.
