Once again, Hillary Clinton’s email scandal is rocking national news.

It truly is the news hit that just keeps on coming, isn’t it?

From Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitton, writing in Breitbart: “We have released 894 pages of State Department documents that include previously unreleased email exchanges in which Clinton’s top aide Huma Abedin sent Clinton classified information through her insecure clintonmail.com email account.”

Come on now, Mrs. Clinton. Even for you — the queen of political scandals whose past includes everything from curiously large cattle share profits to remarkably insensitive congressional testimonies laced with “who cares” cries about truth — this scandal is long-running.

Can we at least get a solid number on how many emails sent and received during your State Department tenure put the country at security risk? That’d be good — even a ballpark figure would work at this point.

“The Abedin emails also include repeated instances of Clinton’s detailed daily schedules being sent to top Clinton Foundation officials at unsecured email addresses,” Fitton wrote.

You know — in case the quid pro quo payments had to be made in person that day. At least: that’s a perception, and concern.

As the Daily Signal’s Fred Lucas reported in November: “The FBI is conducting an ongoing investigation into potential ‘pay to play’ at the Clinton Foundation … Congress also will continue inquiries it began into the Clinton Foundation, the email matter and questions about potential political interference in the FBI’s investigation of the private server.”

But it’s Judicial Watch that’s been the real pitbull on getting to the bottom of the Clinton email matter.

Among the most recent findings, which came by way of a court order from the group’s May 2015 lawsuit against the State Department, Judicial Watch received 29 Clinton email exchanges that weren’t previously handed over to federal authorities.

“These records further appear to contradict statements by Clinton that, ‘as far as she knew,’ all of her government emails were turned over to the State Department,” Fitton said.

Right — that is a rather glaring contradiction, yes?

The Abedin emails, meanwhile, indicate that Clinton’s daily schedule was distributed to leading Clinton Foundation officials.

There’s more (you knew that, right?). But here’s the larger question: When will Clinton be held accountable for her scandalous behaviors? If you guessed Not in This Life, you’ve probably chosen wisely.
