Hillary Clinton’s first public response to her use of a home server to send and delete thousands of official emails during her time as Secretary of State dominates the news of the week in 2016 presidential politics.

With what could be perceived as a hint of irritation in her voice, Clinton on Tuesday tried to dismiss the controversy by saying “Looking back, it would’ve been better if I’d simply used a second email account and carried a second phone, but at the time, this didn’t seem like an issue.” But since her statement, the questions haven’t gone away.

Rick Klein, political director of ABC News, and Wesley Lowery, a political reporter for The Washington Post join Here & Now hosts Robin Young and Jeremy Hobson to discuss the emails, as well as the fallout from some Republican presidential hopefuls who signed a controversial open letter to Iranian leaders this week.
