Hillary Clinton’s greatest self-inflicted wound is bleeding again.
And this time the stain is spreading, even across media outlets that have played down the controversy for months.
I believe the press got bored with the email mess as it dragged on for more than a year. The story also got bogged down at times by increasingly legalistic debates over what qualified as classified info and whether the former secretary of State had sent or received it.
The buzz grew louder as the FBI was wrapping up its probe, speculation intensified about whether she’d be indicted, and James Comey contradicted much of what Clinton had said and accused her of being extremely careless with classified messages.
But then it seemed to be over, except that a separate probe involving the Clinton Foundation was still kicking around.
