The FBI’s year-long investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server uncovered 14,900 emails and documents from her time as secretary of state that had not been disclosed by her attorneys, and a federal judge on Monday pressed the State Department to begin releasing emails sooner than mid-October as it planned.

Justice Department lawyers said last week that the State Department would review and turn over Clinton’s work-related emails to a conservative legal group. The records are among “tens of thousands” of documents found by the FBI in its probe and turned over to the State Department, Justice Department attorney Lisa Ann Olson said Monday in court.

The 14,900 Clinton documents are nearly 50 percent more than the roughly 30,000 emails that Clinton’s lawyers deemed work-related and returned to the department in December 2014.

...and what should the Clinton Campaign's response be: we'll discuss what's in those emails when the Trump Campaign (1) releases Donald Trump's tax returns and (2) they come clean about all of Trump's business dealings around the world...until then, everyone go can go pound sand.

(The Guardian) Nearly 15,000 emails recovered by the FBI from the private server used byHillary Clinton when she was secretary of state are set to be made public just before the presidential election in November, it emerged in court today.

The state department said it was reviewing 14,900 documents that came to light in the now-closed investigation into the handling of sensitive information that flowed through the server in question. That is a major addition to the 30,000 emails that Clinton’s lawyers considered work-related and returned to the department in December 2014.

The FBI cleared Clinton of criminal conduct but found her to have have been “extremely careless”, and the saga continues to dog her. On 5 August theFBIcompleted a transfer of several thousand previously undisclosed work-related emails for the state department to review and publish.

Responding to the news, the Republican National Committee chairman, Reince Priebus, said Clinton “seems incapable of telling the truth”.

State lawyers told federal judge James Boasberg on Monday they expected to release the emails in batches on 14, 21 and 28 October and 4 November. The election, against Republican nominee Donald Trump, takes place on 8 November.

Boasberg ordered that the department should aim for a more ambitious deadline. The judge set another hearing for 22 September, so progress can be reviewed.

Tom Fitton, president of the conservative legal group Judicial Watch, which brought the case under a Freedom of Information Act (Foia) request, tweeted: “FBI found almost 15,000 new Clinton documents. When will state release them?”

Another federal judge, Emmet Sullivan, last week ordered Clinton to answer written questions from Judicial Watch. Her answers are not due until after the presidential election.

....awful convenient of 'em to pick that time to make the emails public, huh?

So you're saying that the recent history of a candidate has no bearing on their qualifications to be president?

In this specific case, given who HRC's running against....nope. Repeating what I said earlier, Doc:
...and what should the Clinton Campaign's response be: we'll discuss what's in those emails when the Trump Campaign (1) releases Donald Trump's tax returns and (2) they come clean about all of Trump's business dealings around the world...until then, everyone go can go pound sand.

Tell that to the FBI who is now sitting in a corner with a very red face.

(Democratic Underground) After Donald Trump on Monday called for the “corrupt” Clinton Foundation to shutter immediately, Hillary Clinton’s campaign fired back that it’s Trump’s turn to “stop hiding behind fake excuses” and “come clean with voters” on his finances.

"The Foundation has already laid out the unprecedented steps the charity will take if Hillary Clinton becomes president,” campaign chairman John Podesta said in a statement. “Donald Trump needs to come clean with voters about his complex network of for-profit businesses that are hundreds of millions of dollars in debt to big banks, including the state-owned Bank of China, and other business groups with ties to the Kremlin.”

Podesta continued: “Donald Trump should stop hiding behind fake excuses and release his tax returns and immediately disclose the full extent of his business interests. He must commit to fully divesting himself from all of his business conflicts to ensure that he is not letting his own financial interests affect decisions made by his potential administration."...

BuzzFeed reported the Clinton Foundation has spent months drafting plans for the sprawling foundation to pull back and consolidate nearly all of its ongoing initiatives around the globe, dramatically downsizing the foundation in an effort to avoid conflicts of interest if Hillary Clinton is elected.

The wheels of justice are rusty, and gummed up with DC politics, but still turning:

Judge orders State Department to review 14,900 Clinton emails

A judge ordered the U.S. State Department on Monday to review for possible release 14,900 of Hillary Clinton's emails and attachments that the FBI found when investigating her use of a private email server as secretary of state.

The judge also scheduled a Sept. 23 hearing on when to release the emails, a deadline that raises the possibility some will become public before the Nov. 8 presidential election between Democrat Clinton and her Republican rival, Donald Trump.

Yeah, and a lot of those wheels are turning w/right-wing BS meant to do one thing: delegitimize both Clintons and the Democratic Party...unfortunately, a good number of people in both the media and the judiciary have bought the Right Wing Wurlitzer Machine's noises....

Unfortunately, my good friend, neither the DNC nor the Clinton's themselves need any sort of help harming themselves, and, to be fair about it, the GOP really doesn't either.

While in this election cycle, the former seems to have cornered the market in Shady and in some cases overt Criminal Behavior, the latter has managed to re-write the book on Childish Behavior, and has done so in front of national TV cameras on many occasions.


Did you see what the Libertarians have conjured up to run this time?
