Clinton Email Problems Return

More uncovered, more ordered released

More of Hillary Clinton's emails have been released and more will come forward in the future thanks to a pair of actions that will keep the Clinton email scandal front and center for voters.

First on Monday came the release of more emails by Judicial Watch, emails the group said show Clinton Foundation donors seeking special access to the State Department while Hillary  headed up the department.

Bloomberg Politics reports that the release, and a judge's order, have both given fresh ammunition to Donald Trump.

The e-mails, along with a judge’s order Monday for the State Department to expedite its review of almost 15,000 previously undisclosed documents the FBI recovered from Clinton’s private e-mail servers, represent a continuing political headache for the Democratic presidential nominee with fewer than 80 days until the election.

“The Clintons have spent decades as insiders lining their own pockets and taking care of donors instead of the American people,” Trump, the Republican nominee, said in a statement following the Clinton foundation’s announcement Thursday that it will bar foreign and corporate donations if Clinton is elected president.

The Clinton Foundation, its foreign funding, its close ties to the Clinton State Department and the appearance of many conflicts of interest have lead for calls that the foundation be shut down. Those calls aren't just coming from Clinton enemies or Republicans but also liberal newspapers like the Boston Globe and former Democrat governor of Pennsylvania Ed Rendell.
