The State Department recently handed over an email that was sent to Hillary Clinton in 2009 to the watchdog group Judicial Watch, and it appears to have not been included in the records she turned over to the agency in December 2014.
According to Daily Caller, the March 20, 2009 email is the first message that Clinton withheld from the State Department to be released to the public. It was sent to her by Tom Buffenbarger, the president of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM), and the contents appear to be innocuous.
Buffenbarger, who recently endorsed Clinton for president, expressed concern to her in the email over a global manufacturing downturn. It is not clear if the former Secretary of State ever responded.
The fact that the email is not included on the State Department’s website, which is where the rest of Clinton’s work-related documents have been published, raises questions as to whether Clinton deleted it and why she would do that. The Clinton campaign refused to comment on it, but State Department spokesman John Kirby released a standard statement on the email.
“Secretary Clinton and her team have indicated that they provided the Department with all work-related emails in her possession from her time at the Department,” he said, adding that Clinton “has also indicated that she does not have access to work-related emails beyond those she turned over to the Department.”
“In addition, at the Department’s request, Secretary Clinton confirmed for the Court that she believed that all her emails on clintonemail.com in her custody that were potentially federally records were provided to the Department,” Kirby continued.
