Hillary Clinton to finally meet the press on email controversy

SHARE Hillary Clinton to finally meet the press on email controversy

The day has finally arrived. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who is under increasing pressure, will finally address the controversy surrounding her private email address on Tuesday.

The Associated Press reports Clinton will hold a “brief press conference” following a speech at a United Nations event commemorating the 20th anniversary of the Beijing conference on women.

Clinton ignored the email issue at a forum Monday while fellow Democrats urged her to speak out about conducting business in a private account while secretary of state.

Previously, the only public comments she’s made about her private emails came in a tweet on March 4, where Clinton said she wants to the public to see her emails from her time as secretary of state.

Earlier on Tuesday, Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Illinois, joined the chorus of Democrats urging her to speak.

“She should come forward and explain the situation,” Durbin said Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “I think it’s only fair to say to Hillary Clinton: Tell us your side of the story. … What did you put on this personal email?”
