State Department Drops Major Report on Clinton Email Server Scandal

With all the talk of “corruption” in the air this week, particularly in regard to Ukraine, Hillary Clinton’s name was bound to come up.

At this point, we wouldn’t be surprised if staring into a mirror and saying “corruption” three times at midnight wouldn’t conjure some sort of Hillary apparition.  Her name and her career are synonymous with the worst of the worst when it comes to American greed, and it has poisoned her once-powerful Democratic party.

Now, one of Clinton’s most despicable scandals is back in the news, and the former Secretary of State may very well be in the hot seat once again.

A State Department report into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server for government business, obtained by Fox News on Friday, found dozens of individuals at fault and hundreds of security violations.

The report summarized an administrative review of the handling of classified information relating to Clinton’s private email server used during her tenure as the nation’s highest-ranking diplomat between 2009 and 2013. The report, dated Sept. 13., was delivered to the office of Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa., who was chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee until last year.

The report reflected only approximately 30,000 emails that the State Department was able to physically review, and found 38 individuals were responsible for 91 violations.

Another 497 violations were also found, although the report was not able to assign responsibility in those cases, in part because many of those involved had already left the department during the time it took to receive the emails and review them.

Ironically, the report has dropped just as Hillary Clinton was reemerging onto the public political scene in such a way as to stir up talk of a possible late entrance into the 2020 campaign.

We can only hope that Clinton takes the hint that the timing of this report provides her.
