Nothing to see here folks, just move along.
The FBI’s year-long investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server uncovered 15,000 more documents from her time as secretary of state that were not previously disclosed by her attorneys. The State Department is expected to discuss when and how it will release the emails Monday morning in federal court.
The total — confirmed by the Justice Department — was disclosed by a conservative legal group after the State Department said last week that it would hand over the emails. The number to be released is nearly 50 percent more than the 30,000-plus that Clinton’s lawyers deemed work-related and returned to the department in December 2014.
Put this into perspective. When Hillary’s U-Haul pulled out of the State Department building in Foggy Bottom, she took here entire email record with her. Her personal legal team, without any input from State or any other agency, then decided which emails were official — and some 30,000 of those were returned to State in accordance with federal law — and which were personal — those were either destroyed or became part of Clinton’s personal papers.
Now we find that among the allegedly personal emails retained by Clinton there were nearly 15,000 emails that have now been classified as official correspondence. That is an error of 50%. Or, alternately, you could say that only 2/3 of her official emails were actually turned over to the US government. Either way it is hard to credit an deviation of this magnitude to simple error.
These emails will be released to Judicial Watch, the non-profit that brought the suit that compelled release of Clinton’s emails, beginning in October. State will control the release of the emails so even if there are pornographic exchanges between Hillary Clinton and Sidney Blumenthal, they will not be released before Election Day.
