On August 8, Former First Lady, U.S. Senator, and Secretary of State and current Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton, who is currently under federal investigation for possible breach of national security, signed a declaration regarding those allegations, which was submitted to federal court. It reads:
“I, Hillary Rodham Clinton, declare under penalty of perjury that the following is true and correct:
“1. While I do not know what information may be ‘responsive’ for purposes of this law suit, I have directed that all my e-mails on clintonemail.com in my custody that were or potentially were federal records be provided to the Department of State, and on information and belief, this has been done.
“2. As a result of my directive, approximately 55,000 pages of these e-mails were produced to the Department on December 5, 2014.
“3. Cheryl Mills did not have an account on clintonemail.com Huma Abedin did have such an account which was used at times for government business.”
The law suit in question is Judicial Watch, Inc. vs. U.S. Department of State.
According to the latest major poll averages, Clinton maintains a commanding lead over her Democratic rivals. She leads the field with 54%. Bernie Sanders is a distant second, at 18%, followed by Joe Biden (who has not declared that he will run, though there is speculation he might), at 12%. The other three mainstream declared Democratic candiates, Jim Webb, Martin O’Malley, and Lincoln Chafee, are all under 2%.
