Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush criticized Hillary Clinton for failing to release personal email used to conduct government business while she was secretary of state.
“Transparency matters,” Bush tweeted late Monday. “Unclassified @HillaryClinton emails should be released.”
Clinton, the likely frontrunner for the Democratic nomination for president, used a personal e-mail account to conduct government business during her four years at the State Department, which may have violated federal regulations, The New York Times reported Monday night.
Emails from official government accounts are saved for public record but, according to the story, Clinton did not preserve her personal emails as required by the Federal Records Act.
In December, Clinton turned over 55,000 pages of personal e-mails to the State Department after her aides reviewed them and selected which pages to hand over.
Bush, who is considering seeking the Republican nomination for president, released thousands of emails sent to him during his eight years as governor, even though they were from a personal account.
The public didn't see everything from Bush.
The Miami Herald reported in January that he conducted all his communication on his private Jeb@jeb.orgaccount and turned over only a hand-selected batch to the state archives when he left office.
