Bill Clinton: I’ve Only Sent Two Emails In My Life

Former President Bill Clinton has only ever sent two emails, both while he was in office, a spokesman told the Wall Street Journal on Tuesday.

Clinton sent both messages — one to astronaut John Glenn, and one to American service members abroad — while he was serving as President, spokesman Matt McKenna told the WSJ.

McKenna said the former President set up a domain for his staff,, after leaving office but doesn’t use email himself, according to the WSJ.

The former President shared the information on the same day his wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, answered questions about her own email habits.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
