Hillary Clinton Hints At Presidential Bid, Addresses Email Scandal

Hillary Clinton has recently come under fire for using a personal email account during her time as Secretary of State. Some have expressed security concerns as a personal email would not have the encryption and protection that a government email account would require. Despite the intense scrutiny, Clinton recently made an appearance at Emily's List 30th Anniversary Conference and Gala which took place in Washington, D.C. Not only did she take to the stage with a speech that skimmed over the email scandal, Clinton hinted once again at potentially running for President of the United States.

As she has been doing for months, Clinton teased a bid for the White House: "I suppose it's only fair to say, don't you someday want to see a woman president of the United States of America?" Clinton said during her speech which was met with considerable applause.

However, behind the applause and campaign allusions was the email scandal that she refrained from mentioning at the conference. A congressional committee is looking further into the emails Clinton sent from her personal email account. She has previously admitted to using her personal email account while in office. 

Currently there is a regulation that while in office, you must use your professional email to cover all work-related issues. However, that was not a law while Clinton was in office. 

Over 50,000 pages of Clinton's emails (both professional and personal) were submitted last year, and now over 300 of those emails are under investigation. Some emails discussing professional issues were discovered on her personal account. Further investigation is going to be taken regarding the scandal.

Clinton tweeted late Wednesday that she has nothing to hide, urging the state to release her emails to the public.
