Despite what Bernie says, there’s a good reason we should care about Hillary’s damn emails.The Democrats, who have the most to lose from the scandal, should care more than anyone. Currently under investigation from the FBI, it’s going to be hard to campaign for the presidency from jail in the worst case scenario for Hillary.
As the investigation continues, there hasn’t been much information reported that reflects positively on Hillary.Via McClatchy DC:
At least 1,818 emails that Hillary Clinton sent or received contained classified material, according to the State Department’s latest update from its ongoing review of more than 30,000 emails.
The State Department released a new batch of 1,589 pages of Clinton’s emails Friday evening in response to a court order. Of those, 88 contain classified information. All are at the confidential level, which is the lowest level of classification.None of Clinton’s emails was marked as classified during her tenure, State Department officials say, but intelligence officials say some material was clearly classified at the time. Her aides also sent and received classified information.
Clinton, running a tough race for the Democratic nomination for president, has been under fire for months for exclusively using personal email routed through a private server while serving as the nation’s top diplomat. The FBI launched an inquiry into the handling of sensitive information after classified information was found in some.
Last month, the State Department designated 22 of previously reviewed emails “top secret” – the first time it has deemed any of Clinton’s emails to be classified at a level that can cause “exceptionally grave” damage to national security if disclosed. The 22 emails will not be released to the public.As Marco Rubio once said, “if Hillary Clinton, God forbid, were elected president. One of the first things she’ll probably have to do is pardon herself.”
