I was surprised that he used personal email account if he is at State," she wrote. Of course, Clinton is now embroiled in her own email scandal.

But right now I'm fighting w the WH operator who doesn't believe I am who I say and wants my direct office line even tho I'm not there and I just have him my home # and the State Dept # and I told him I had no idea what my direct office # was since I didn't call myself and I just hung up and am calling thru Ops like a proper and properly dependent Secretary of State–no independent dialing allowed," Clinton ranted.

Clinton feared a "Fox-generated media storm" led by Sarah Palin. Clinton wrote in a 2011 email chain about her unease with the State Department's choice to use the terms "parent one" and "parent two" instead of "mother" and "father." She blasted, "Who made the decision that State will not use the terms 'mother and father' and instead substitute 'parent one and two?' I'm not defending that decision, which I disagree w and knew nothing about, in front of this Congress. I could live w letting people in nontraditional families choose another descriptor so long as we retained the presumption of mother and father. We need to address this today or we will be facing a huge Fox-generated media storm led by Palin et al."
