Hillary Clinton said on Wednesday night that she has asked the State Department to release all of her emails from her four years as secretary of state as the disclosure that she used a private email address for official government business shadowed her potential presidential campaign.
"I want the public to see my email. I asked State to release them. They said they will review them for release as soon as possible," Clinton told almost 3 million followers on her verified Twitter account at 11:35 p.m. ET.
Wednesday's tweet was the first time Clinton personally commented on the controversy in public.
