It is reported that much of her testimony focuses on how over half of Clinton’s emails from her time as secretary of state were deleted, since Mills was part of the process. (Politico, 9/4/2015)
- Clinton confidant Sid Blumenthal recently gave some of his work-related email correspondence with Clinton to the committee, and all or part of 15 of them had not been handed over by Clinton, despite Clinton’s claim that she had turned over all her work-related emails. Mills could not explain how those had been missed.
- Mills also says she was not involved in setting up Clinton’s private server, nor was she part of the decision to move it to the care of the Platte River Networks company in mid-2013.
- She also says that she “overwhelmingly” used a State Department email for work, but she admits she did use her private email account when she was at home or overseas. (Politico, 9/3/2015)
- She claims that many people at the State Department knew Clinton was using a personal email account for her government work.
- She says that neither she nor Clinton’s personal lawyer David Kendall had personally gone through Clinton’s over 60,000 emails to determine which to hand over and which to delete. Instead, a member of their legal staff who was reporting to them did it. (This is a likely reference to lawyer Heather Samuelson.) (The New York Times, 9/3/2015)
