WASHINGTON: Hillary Clinton sought to move past the email controversy dogging her presidential campaign on Friday (Saturday in Manila), placing some of the blame on other officials for sending her classified information. Speaking during an interview with CNN, the presumptive Democratic nominee said her use of a private email account as secretary of state was a “mistake.” Clinton deflected some of the blame toward “people in government, mostly in the State Department” with whom she communicated “who did not believe they were sending any material that was classified.” “I do not think they were careless,” she said. “I just believe that the material… was being communicated by professionals, many with years of handling sensitive classified material, (who) did not believe that it was.”
