In a bid for transparency (or redemption), Hillary Clinton released the remaining emails saved on her private server, used during her tenure as Secretary of State. Nothing juicy, but the Fordham Political Review Editors provide analysis anyways!

Republicans to offer Edward Snowden asylum in Mitch McConnell’s office in return for finding and leaking saucy e-mails between Hillary Clinton and Bill. He plans to start with e-mails with the subject line “Stained Dress”

What else is to be said about Hillary’s email scandal? It was a little shady, especially since she has not explained herself. I mean, it’s not as if she jeopardized government information, exposing it to professional hackers, interceptors, etc.. However,  as soon as she explains her reasoning I’m sure her supporters will let this blow over, just like they did with the Benghazi incident. Classic Hillz.

In light of the recent controversy surrounding Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email account during her tenure as Secretary of State, one must ask, what was she hiding? Was it the countless number of times Netflix asked her if she wanted to finish an episode of Storage Wars, or was it sensitive information regarding the 2012 Benghazi attacks? Both of which would be equally devastating for the soon-to-be presidential nominee.

Despite the emphasis on the political implications of the Hillary Clinton email scandal, there are more far-reaching implications to contend with. The purpose of conducting government business over government email is not only for security purposes but also for historical purposes as some in the media have pointed out. This scandal most likely won’t irreparably damage Clinton’s campaign for president, but it will and has already damaged future historians’ access to possible insights into the Obama presidency during her tenure as Secretary of State.

One of the nerdiest scandals to hit a presidential candidate, Hillary’s email server is probably criminal and probably not going to play a difference in the political calculus going into the “search” for Democratic presidential nominee. Nice try GOP, but yourself going to have to expose her burner phones for that!!!!!

Honestly, I’d be more concerned with what this says about Hillary’s organisation skills.  Forget about her staff turning in over 55,000 pages of emails to the State Department after she stepped down.  Work life and personal life do not belong in the same Gmail and if she can’t figure that out, well then I guess she can never make a good president.

The recent e-mail controversy surrounding the Clinton camp isn’t quite the story that GOP operatives would like you to believe. Yes, it’s certainly an embarrassment for the former Secretary of State as she gets ready to jump into the 2016 presidential race. But while Republicans may litigate the issue of Hilary Clinton’s use of a private email account in the media over the next few weeks, the real issue they should be focused on is the Clinton Foundation, and whether its acceptance of donations from foreign governments constituted either a conflict of interest, or a veiled attempt to fund the Clintons’ political operation.
