An alarming trend is emerging from Hillary Clinton’s email scandal, that offers hints that the Obama administration private email use is a problem that pervades the administration. Claudia Rossett penned an article at PJ Media, “Inspector General Slams Ambassador to Japan Caroline Kennedy’s Embassy as Amateur Hour”, which dissects a State Department IG’s report on the US embassy in Japan. Rossett states:
“The report lists numerous problems of waste and mismanagement, including one that sounds especially intriguing in view of the controversy surrounding former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s email practices. (Boldface is mine):
OIG’s Office of Evaluations and Special Projects conducted a review and confirmed that senior embassy staff, including the Ambassador, used personal email accounts to send and receive messages containing official business. In addition, OIG identified instances where emails labeled Sensitive but Unclassified were sent from, or received by, personal email accounts.”
The email issue extends beyond the State Department’s door, because today the Washington Times reports that the IRS located another personal email account for Lois Lerner that was used to conduct IRS business: “IRS finds yet another Lois Lerner email account”.
