Second off…Hilary’s emails; all of the hoopla will amount to nothing. This is all about getting the story out of the way long before the general election. Next May she’ll be able to say it’s a vast right-winged conspiracy and we’ve been through all of that. She is Peanuts’ Lucy yanking the ball yet again away from the Republican stooges trying to play nice to the cameras. The only chink in Hilary’s armor is Obama and how much he dislikes the Clintons.
