“This is being in effect used by Republicans in Congress. OK. But I want people to understand what the truth is, and the truth is that everything I did was permitted, and I went above and beyond what anybody could have expected.”

Snake Oil. The 'truth' is that members of Congress stated that they wanted to see State Department emails on her private server which should never have been there in the first place, and the day following this news her staff wiped the server.
