Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton opened her press conference this week regarding her use of a personal email account with a jab at Senate Republicans who issued an open letter to Iran regarding its nuclear program.


“The president and his team are in the midst of intense negotiations. Their goal is a diplomatic solution that would close off Iran’s pathways to a nuclear bomb and give us unprecedented access and insight into Iran’s nuclear program,” Clinton said to a horde of reporters at the United Nations on Tuesday who were waiting to hear her email comments.

“Now, reasonable people can disagree about what exactly it will take to accomplish this objective, and we all must judge any final agreement on its merits,” she continued. “But the recent letter from Republican senators was out of step with the best traditions of American leadership. And one has to ask, what was the purpose of this letter?”

“There appear to be two logical answers. Either these senators were trying to be helpful to the Iranians or harmful to the commander- in-chief in the midst of high-stakes international diplomacy. Either answer does discredit to the letters’ signatories.”

Clinton followed this up on Wednesday with a tweet:
