Clinton says no reason to save personal emails
UNITED NATIONS (AP) - Hillary Rodham Clinton says she had no reason to save personal emails from her time as secretary of state.
The possible Democratic presidential candidate during a news conference on Tuesday there were more than 60,000 emails in total sent and received. About half of them were personal emails, she said.
Clinton was answering questions Tuesday for the first time about her email practices as secretary of state. She spoke following a Tuesday afternoon speech at the United Nations.
She says she went "above and beyond" what she was required to do as a State Department employee.
Her comments come after days of silence and intensifying calls from Democrats as well as Republicans to address the matter.
