Clinton e-mail references Bermuda photo

Bill and Hillary Clinton in Bermuda. Photograph by Chris Burville.

A photograph from Bermudian Chris Burville was the subject of one of Hillary Clinton’s e-mails that have entered into the public domain.

Mr Burville, a former Royal Gazette photographer, captured Mrs Clinton with her husband Bill while they vacationed on the Island in the summer of 2009; the shot appeared in an edition of the New York Post.

Now it has emerged that Mrs Clinton, who is seeking the Democratic nomination for the 2016 presidential election, had a few private words to say about the picture.

Among the several thousands of pages of Mrs Clinton’s messages released by the State Department was one dated August 1, 2009, in which she asked her long-time aide Huma Abedin: “Did you see the photo in the NY Post of Bill and me from yesterday?

“It was after lunch but I didn’t see anybody w [sic] a camera so obviously a long lens from afar.”

According to the New York Post, Ms Abedin replied: “Yes. It’s a nice photo. It could just be someone with a good camera standing on their lawn.”
