Hillary Clinton is at the United Nations today giving a speech to the UN conference on women, and it looks like she's finally ready to speak publicly about the email scandal that's been plaguing her and every Democrat who wants to see her as the party's 2016 presidential nominee.

Last week, The New York Times reported that Clinton had exclusively used a private email account during her time as Secretary of State. That might not be a problem on its own, so long as she retained records of them. Clinton's spokesperson said she followed the "letter and spirit of the rules" on keeping copies of diplomatic communication.

Republicans aren't convinced.

"The fact is the State Department cannot certify they have produced all of former Secretary Clinton’s emails because they do not have all of former Secretary Clinton’s emails, nor do they control access to them," said Trey Gowdy, the Republican congressman from South Carolina who chairs the House Select Committee on Benghazi.

Clinton's been mostly silent until now, except for one tweet last week that read: "I want the public to see my email. I asked State [Department] to release them. They said they will review them for release as soon as possible."
