Madeleine Albright: I wouldn’t have approved private email server

“I think that it is important to be tough because we are obviously concerned about hacking and a variety of issues, but I think she has explained what she’s done. She’s turned things over,” Albright remarked, noting that every agency has a different definition of what it considers classified.

Asked whether she would be concerned if this were not Clinton, Albright said that other State Department officials had done the same thing.

“I think that our government, generally, has to catch up with a variety of ways of using technology these days,” she added.

Pressed, however, on whether she would approve her deputy secretary of state to run a private email server, Albright was firm.

“I would not, no,” she said.

Albright later clarified her position on Twitter.

Your question was whether I would approve it now. After all of this controversy – of course not. 1/2
