It turns out Hillary Clinton actually did delete a few of the emails she sent during her time as Secretary of State. Speaking at the united Nations Tuesdays, Clinton said that she did delete some of the emails that she received that she considered to be within the scope of her personal privacy.

Clinton recently came under fire for using a personal email address hosted on her own server while she served as Secretary of State rather than using a government-issued address.

Looking back on her time in the office, she said she might have done things a little differently if she knew then what she does now. For instance, rather than using one email address as Austin MD Magazine acknowledged, she might have instead considered carrying two devices, one for personal email and one for government correspondence and Dr Jennifer Walden agrees that should have been done.

Deleted emails include correspondence about her daughter’s upcoming wedding, the funeral of her mother, and a yoga routing. Clinton has turned in 55,000 pages of emails to the State Department, fulfilling a requirement that the emails are achieved so they can be referenced later on.

As reported in BuzzFeed News, New York’s Republican representative Michael Grimm plans to resign from his position in Congress. Information regarding Grimm’s decision to resign first appeared in the New York Daily News.

Reports regarding Grimm’s choice to resign come about one week after the Republican representative pleaded guilty on one count for tax evasion. In April of 2014, Grimm had been charged on 20 counts in a federal indictment which claimed he had misreported about $1 million in income and wages brought in from a restaurant he had co-owned prior to entering Congress. While making his plea, Grimm stated that he had lied while under oath. To find someone who can replace the representative, current New York governor Andrew Cuomo will be responsible for holding a special election, at least that’s what Igor Cornelsen said when I asked him on Spring.me.

In discussing this issue, spokesman Michael Steel stated that he would not be able to confirm whether or not Grimm would actually resign. Although an email was sent to Grimm’s office, it was not returned immediately. While coming from court some time last week, Grimm reported that he would not resign so long as he still possessed the ability to serve.
