A Democratic senator said on “Meet The Press” Sunday that likely 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton needs to talk about her use of a private email as secretary of state.

Dianne Feinstein, California’s senior senator, told host Chuck Todd that she’d like to see Hillary “come forward” because her silence thus far, only releasing one tweet on the issue, “is going to hurt her” going forward.

Aside from using a private email as secretary of state, it was also revealed that Clinton uses a secret server in the Chappaqua, N.Y. mansion she shares with former President Bill Clinton.

“What I would like is for her to come forward and say just what the situation is, because she is the preeminent political figure right now,” Feinstein said. “She is the leading candidate, whether it be Republicans or Democrat, to be the next president. And I think that she needs to step up and come out and state exactly what the situation is.”

Todd injected, “You think the silence is hurting her?”

“I think at this point, from this point on, the server,” Feinstein said accidentally then corrected herself, “The silence is going to hurt her.”
