Bernie Gave Helluva Defense of Email Scandals. There Are 32 Problems With It

Bernie Sanders Gave a Helluva Defense of Hillary’s Email Scandals at the Debate. There Are 32 Problems With It

Mother Jones

"I've taken responsibility for it," she said. "I did say it was a mistake." She then employed her recent campaign strategy of linking the criticism of her email setup to the heavily politicized House Select Committee on Benghazi, which she described as "basically an arm of the Republican National Committee."

The Republican members of the Benghazi committee and FBI investigators, who are currently looking into how classified material ended up on the server, are well-known examples. But there are also 32 separate lawsuits related to public-records requests for the disputed emails from Clinton and some top staffers during her time as secretary of state.

Several of them were brought by journalists or media organizations: The Associated Press has one, and Jason Leopold, a Vice News reporter who's been instrumental in getting the emails released to the public, has two. Gawker Media's suit is on the list, along with one brought by Shane Bauer, a Mother Jones reporter, who is suing the CIA, the FBI, and the State Department for records related to each agency's handling of his imprisonment in Iran.


Mostly bullshit GOP fishing expeditions. Not all of them though.
