Remember when Hillary claimed that an investigation into her emails would produce zero communications considered classified?
Well, America does and the Federal Bureau of Investigation has now been able to locate nearly 1,000 of them.
As reported by Fox News, the FBI has been able to locate another batch of emails (328 to be exact) containing sensitive and classified information passed on by Clinton and her staff directly pertaining to details on the Benghazi attacks. According to the report, not only did Clinton share details on the attack with her staff, at one point she even celebrated her sickening hearing appearance in which she stated What difference at this point does it make as if the deaths of American citizens were a joke.
As damning as the new emails are, the burning question remains… How many nails does it take to seal a coffin and when (if ever) will Hillary be held accountable?
Sadly, this is something that cannot be easily answered.
The emails were part of the largest release yet of Clinton documents from the State Department.
The batch contained 328 emails deemed to have classified information. According to the State Department, that brings the total number with classified information to 999.
That alone drew outrage from Republicans, with the RNC saying the sheer number of emails with classified material underscores the degree to which Hillary Clinton jeopardized our national security and has tried to mislead the American people.
But the document dump also potentially creates more problems for Clinton in her attempt to move past the fallout from the Benghazi attacks.
Notably, the emails show her aides congratulating her after her initial January 2013 testimony on the attacks before Congress. During that hearing, she got into a dispute with Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., over the conflicting narratives about the motivation for the attack and what preceded it the State Department had come under fire for initially pointing to a protest over an anti-Islam film. Clinton told Johnson, expressively, what difference, at this point, does it make?
During and after the hearing, aides forwarded Clinton congratulatory messages.
Im being flooded with emails about how you rocked, deputy chief of staff Huma Abedin wrote. And you looked fabulous.
The emails from September 2012 also show her and her staff scrambling to respond the night of the attacks and later calibrating their public response.
On the night of the attacks, the communications show Clinton notifying top advisers of confirmation from the Libyans that then-Ambassador Stevens had died.
Early the next morning, Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills tells Clinton they recovered both bodies and were looking to get out a statement; Sean Smith, information management officer, was the other State Department employee killed that night.
After a controversy erupted over claims the attack was spontaneous, aide Jake Sullivan wrote to Clinton to assure her, You never said spontaneous or characterized the motives. In fact you were careful in your first statement to say we were assessing motive and method. The way you treated the video in the Libya context was to say that some sought to *justify* the attack on that basis.
