'I Want Those Emails Out': Clinton Takes Questions From Press in Iowa
Hillary Clinton took a few questions from the media this afternoon at a campaign event in Iowa, saying she wants her private emails to be released as soon as possible.
The State Department said it plans to release 55,000 pages of Clinton's emails by next January, which is just before the start of the presidential primaries.
Clinton said today she would rather see the emails come out much sooner.
"I have said repeatedly: I want those emaiIs out. Nobody has a bigger interest in getting them released than I do. I respect the State Department. They have their process that they do for everybody, not just for me. But anything that they might do to expedite that process, I heartily support," said Clinton.
Clinton also said there was no conflict of interest related to her giving paid speeches before she announced her run for president.
In recent weeks, critics have dogged Clinton for taking only a handful of questions during the first month of her campaign and not doing any major interviews.
She walked out of the event as other reporters attempted to continue asking questions.
In another development today, the New York Times released emails indicating that Hillary Clinton used more than one private email address during her time as secretary of state.
She did not address that report this afternoon.
Clinton's attorney, however, wrote in a letter to Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) that the email@example.com address was never used by Clinton while she was secretary of state.
Clinton has already said she used the address, firstname.lastname@example.org, while she was at the State Department.
The emails, however, show the "hrod" address being used in email correspondence with longtime Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal in 2011.
This, however, is not the first time the 'hrod17' address has turned up. The House committee investigating the Benghazi attacks earlier this year said it had records showing "two separate and distinct email addresses" from Clinton, and requested documents from both the 'hrod17' and 'hdr22' accounts.
At the time, Clinton's lawyer and office attributed the appearance of two email addresses to a simple mix-up.
They maintained Clinton only used "one email account" as secretary of state, and that the 'hrod17' account did not exist during her tenure. They said she only launched that account in early 2013, after her prior address was published online.
As for why both email addresses were turning up in records, her office explained that the new email address (the 'hrod17' account) happened to show up on printed copies of old documents because it was the same account -- but it did not exist at the time.
FoxNews.com has reached out to Clinton's office asking if the emails published by The New York Times reflect a similar situation.
