Like many American front pages Wednesday, The Wall Street Journal features a photo of Hillary Clinton at her Tuesday press conference where she discussed her use of private email while Secretary of State.
During her first news conference since leaving her post as as secretary of state two years ago, and ahead of what many believe will be a forthcoming campaign for the White House in 2016, Clinton justified her use of a personal email account instead of a government address during her four years in office because she "opted for convenience," the daily reports.
"Looking back, it would've been better if I'd simply used a second email account and carried a second phone," Reuters quotes Clinton as saying. Still, her comments failed to quell the controversy, with Republican critics accusing the presumed Democratic frontrunner of ducking her responsibility.
