DELETED AND PURGED
The political realm is once again quaking with more official releases of Hillary Clinton’s old State Dept. emails. The phenomenon brings out the fangs — or at least the incredulity — of the Republican National Committee.
“These emails show Hillary Clinton exposed even more classified information on her secret server than previously known,” proclaims chairman Reince Priebus. “On hundreds of occasions, Hillary Clinton’s reckless attempt to skirt transparency laws put sensitive information and our national security at risk. With the FBI continuing to investigate, Hillary Clinton’s growing email scandal shows she cannot be trusted with the White House.”
There is dot-connecting to be had, though. National Journal columnist Ron Fournier asks in a terse tweet: “Remember, these are the emails HRC wanted us to read. What didn’t she want disclosed via an unauthorized private server, deleted and purged?”
Noteworthy question, and on par with The Atlantic’s senior political editor, Yoni Appelbaum, who wonders why the aforementioned Joe Biden seems so confident these days. “There’s one intriguing theory that has so far garnered little attention: What if Biden knows something about Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton that the rest of us don’t?” the editor asks.
