Hillary Clinton has revealed that she chose to delete her personal emails, and decided for all of us which emails, written during her tenure as Secretary of State under Obama, would be turned over to the National Archives. Without a hint of irony, she defended her right to privacy. This is even though she voted for NSA spying and has repeatedly called Edward Snowden a traitor.
