Hillary Clinton ignored Congress' questions about private email in 2012

Congress asked Hillary Clinton directly about her use of a private email account two years ago, but the former secretary of state never replied, according to The New York Times.

"Have you or any senior agency official ever used a personal email account to conduct official business?" the letter, sent in Dec. 2012 by House oversight committee chair Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), and obtained by the Times, said. "If so, please identify the account used."

Clinton never answered the letter, according to the Times. And though the State Department responded months later, after Clinton left the Obama administration, it also sidestepped the question.
