State Department Audit Challenges Clinton’s Repeated Claims on Emails

FOX NEWS — Republicans jumped on the report by the State Department watchdog accusing Hillary Clinton of flouting federal records rules and cybersecurity guidelines with her use of personal email while secretary of state, saying it showed she was in clear violation of the Federal Records Act and endangered national security.

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said in a statement Wednesday that the “detailed inquiry by an Obama appointee makes clear Hillary Clinton hasn’t been telling the truth since day one and her and her aides’ refusal to cooperate with this probe only underscores that fact.”

The forthcoming inspector general audit, a copy of which was obtained Wednesday by FoxNews.com, http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2016/05/25/state-department-audit-faults-clinton-on-emails-says-broke-records-rules.html faults Clinton and her predecessors for poorly managing email and other computer information.

The report says the department was “slow to recognize and to manage effectively the legal requirements and cybersecurity risks associated with electronic data communications.” It cites “longstanding, systemic weaknesses” related to communications that started before Clinton’s tenurE.
