There are plenty of good jokes out there about how Secretary of State Hillary Clinton likely used her old CompuServe account as her private email address while conducting business (and whatever else) at the State Department. It turns out the operation was a bit more sophisticated than that, with someone reportedly registering the ClintonEmail.com domain the first day of her Senate confirmation hearing.
The handy thing about registering a domain is that you can usually add addresses and users at will, which raises some follow-up questions.
Gawker reports that yes, at least two of Clinton’s top aides — namely, Philippe Reines and Huma Abedin — had personal ClintonEmail.com addresses. (Abedin’s husband Anthony Weiner, as we all know, was more of a SnapChat user.)
That’s a good question. If they’d been using official government email addresses, we could find out.
