The State Department has released all of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s work-related emails and none of them contained the smoking gun implicating her for — something — that Republicans have been hoping to find for several years.
Republicans have cloaked this nonsensical investigation as a fact-finding mission based on the idea that we never got the “whole story” about Benghazi, but pretending this is anything other than a partisan witch hunt will be more difficult now that the Republican National Committee (RNC) is getting directly involved.
The Republican National Committee filed a lawsuit on Wednesday to obtain the records of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton during and after her tenure as top U.S. diplomat. […]
It seeks disclosure of records exchanged between a dozen State Department officials and people using e-mail accounts from designated domain names affiliated with Clinton, including HillaryClinton.com and ClintonFoundation.org.
In their court filing, the RNC says their request for more nonsense “bears directly on [Clinton’s] qualifications for president.”
It seems to me that may be hard to prove without knowing what, if anything, they will find. Similar lawsuits filed over the last year by Larry Klayman’s Judicial Watch have been rejected. It’s also not clear to me if the RNC has any standing to demand emails from the Clinton Foundation.
The Clinton Foundation is a nonprofit public health charity, but if you listen to the GOP they’ll tell you it’s where Clinton and her henchmen formulate their nefarious plots. Or something like that.
