According to newly released emails from the controversial personal email account Hillary Clinton used while Secretary of State, Clinton raised an eyebrow at a State Department employee’s use of a personal email account.

So, Hillary Clinton has caught a lot of (deserved) shit for her use of a secret email server that operated outside of transparency law oversight and was subject to zero scrutiny. This allowed her to select what was eligible for review by the public, and, if she chose to, unilaterally delete the rest.

In this email—which we’re able to read only because a judge said she had to show it—Clinton says she’s “surprised” that a State Department employee used a personal email account to send his overview of Libyan politics. The joke is that Clinton was doing the exact same thing. The “I was surprised” email itself comes from Clinton’s personal email account.
