Dem Says Clinton Must Address Email Controversy: ‘Silence’ Will ‘Hurt Her’ (VIDEO)

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) said on Sunday that Hillary Clinton must publicly address the growing controversy over the recent revelation that she used a personal email account and server while she was secretary of state.

“She is the leading candidate, whether it be Republican or Democrat, to be the next president. And I think that she needs to step up and come out and state exactly what the situation is,” Feinstein said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “The silence is going to hurt her.”

Following reports that she used a personal email account instead of a government address, Clinton asked the State Department to release her emails related to her business as secretary of state. But she has not yet spoken about her email use.
