The State Department dumped another batch of Hillary Clinton’s emails just hours before the start of the Nevada caucuses. Emails shed further light on her management of diplomatic crises and her team’s “efforts to make sure President Barack Obama didn’t get all the credit for U.S. foreign policy.” Vice News,
“The 562 emails cover a wide range of issues, including discussions about Israeli settlements, appointing ambassadors to vacant posts, NATO-led bombings in Afghanistan that resulted in a “large number” of civilian casualties, and Clinton personally lobbying lawmakers to support free trade agreements with Colombia, Panama and South Korea. There was also a completely redacted email about Senator John McCain that White House official Denis McDonough was copied on, which prompted Clinton to request that her aide, Cheryl Mills, call her “thru ops” — a likely reference to classified channels.
“There are numerous emails in the latest cache in which Clinton’s aides discuss glowing reviews of her work that they assisted in placing in publications such as the Washington Post, as well as plans to respond to negative news reports about which Clinton had been advised. In other emails, her aides congratulate her for helping to convince Obama to support military intervention in Libya, which led to the toppling of the country’s leader, Muammar Qaddafi. Dozens of other emails refer to subsequent coalition efforts in Libya.”
