House staffers are leaking questions suggesting that a House investigations committee asked Hillary Clinton two years ago whether she used a private email account, only to receive no answer. As I suggested a few weeks back, this makes no sense.

It now appears clear that Secretary Clinton only used her private email account. So certainly everyone on the administration side knew she was using a private email account because you just look at her emails. Clintonemail.com or whatever it was, is not a government email. Clinton certainly had email contact with members of Congress. And in its various subpoenas, the House certainly got some of Clinton’s emails even if not as many as they wanted or perhaps were entitled to.

The only reasonable interpretation of the facts we know is that everyone knew Secretary Clinton used a private email account. Everyone. Because again, it’s email and you just look at where it’s sent from and you know it’s not a government email.

Really. Am I missing something here?
