Hillary Clinton finally apologizes for using private email server

Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton on Tuesday admitted that she used a private email account during her tenure as U. S. Secretary of State, and apologized for the same.

Apologizing for the first time for her controversial use a private email account while holding a government position, Clinton acknowledged that she committed a mistake. She also claimed that she was trying to be as transparent as she could.

In an interview broadcasted yesterday night, the former Secretary of State said, "That was a mistake. I'm sorry about that. I take responsibility and I'm trying to be as transparent as I can."

Later, she took to popular social-network Facebook to explain her thinking and links to her presidential campaign literature on her email use. She wrote that she should have used two separate email addresses, one for her personal matters and one for her official tasks at the State Department. She underlined that she took full responsibility for not doing so.

Her critics have along been accusing her of illegally using the private server to send and receive classified emails. But she continued to insist that she did nothing wrong because no emails were classified at the time of sending.

The Democratic frontrunner's apology marked a significant shift in her tone in connection with the issue. Previously, she accepted responsibility for using private email server, but she repeatedly declined to apologize for that.
