Hillary Clinton is in hot water after emails released on Thursday revealed that she abandoned a secure line in 2009 when she experienced technical problems and opted to use her home phone instead.
The email exchange, which occurred between Clinton and her then-chief of staff Cheryl Mills, was obtained by Judicial Watch through an open records request. The conversation makes it clear the women were having trouble getting ahold of each other.
“I called some time ago to do a secure call with you — call them and ask them to try the connection,” Mills wrote Clinton in February 2009, according to The Blaze.
“I give up. Call me on my home #,” Clinton replied.
“Just did – no answer,” Mills wrote back.
It’s unclear if the duo ever did connect by phone, as the Clinton refused to comment when asked to. However, Clinton’s critics have already cited this email exchange as yet another reason why she should never be president.
“This drip, drip of new Clinton emails show Hillary Clinton could not care less about the security of her communications,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement. “How many other smoking gun emails are Hillary Clinton and her co-conspirators in the Obama administration hiding from the American people?”
