Supposedly a judge has mandated the release of the Hillary Clinton emails, but we are not getting the complete record.
So Hillary Clinton had her own server and answered emails on her own account. That is illegal on its face. But now a Federal Judge has reportedly made her release them. The Washington Times reports,
Under pressure from a federal judge and from the press, who’d already obtained many of the emails, the State Department on Friday afternoon finally released the first sliver of former Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton’s emails showing her communications concerning Benghazi.
The 296 messages released are a fraction of the 30,000 or so she kept on her private server but which she has now deemed to be public business, and — at the prodding of Congress and the department to live up to her obligations under the law — has now turned over to the administration.
So that is less than one ten-thousandth of the number of emails she still has, and we have no idea what was deleted. One congressman expressed common sense objections to the so-called “release” of emails:
Rep. Trey Gowdy, the South Carolina Republican leading the House investigation into the Benghazi attacks, said the emails should be read in the context that they were all hand-selected by Mrs. Clinton, who has said only she had the duty to decide which of her emails were official business. Her lawyers have said she erased all of the messages after turning some of them back over to the Obama administration, her former employer.
“To assume a self-selected public record is complete, when no one with a duty or responsibility to the public had the ability to take part in the selection, requires a leap in logic no impartial reviewer should be required to make and strains credibility,” said Mr. Gowdy, whose probe forced the State Department to acknowledge Mrs. Clinton’s use of a personal email broke with recommended practice for government employees.
Mr. Gowdy also said the State Department is still withholding emails among Mrs. Clinton’s top aides concerning Benghazi.
It is completely corrupt. Clinton is openly hiding stuff and keeping it private that is supposed to be public.
What will be in these emails? Whatever it is, no matter how bad or embarrassing the information seems to be, will be information that Clinton preferred to release to the public rather than whatever she is trying to hide.
