Three new stories concerning Hillary Clinton’s private e-mail server have signaled things will get worse for the aspiring presidential candidate. The Washington Post,
- The State Department has, on the record, disputed Clinton’s claim that her handing over of her e-mails was standard operating procedure, according to reporting from the Post. In fact, State contacted Clinton in the summer of 2014 upon learning that she had exclusively used a private server to conduct business during her time as the nation’s top diplomat. Asked about the discrepancy in Iowa Tuesday night, Clinton told the Des Moines Register: “I don’t know that. I can’t answer that.”
- TheFBI has succeeded in recovering work and personal e-mails from Clinton’s server. That raises at least the possibility that the 50 percent of her e-mails that Clinton deleted as private could be combed through to ensure that the judgment made by her lawyers was the right one.
- More State Deparment e-mails related to the Sept. 11, 2012 attack in Benghazi, Libya were turned over to the Republican-led Congressional committee investigating Clinton’s action on that day.
