State Department To Release All Of Hillary's Deleted Emails, May Wait Until After Presidential Election

Some good and some bad news for transparency advocates was disclosed moments ago, when the State Department announced it would release all of the deleted work-related emails that the FBI recovered from Hillary Clinton’s private system, it confirmed in a recent court filing, eliminating the possibility that the messages will remain secret. “State has voluntarily agreed to produce non-exempt agency records responsive to plaintiff’s [Freedom of Information Act] request,” the department said in a short filing on Friday.

That's the good news. The bad news is that, according to the Hill, "it remains unsettled whether the full set of emails will be out by the presidential election on Nov. 8."

In other words, when finally released, the emails will have zero impact on the presidential election.

The State Department has declined to set a timeline for releasing the emails, and a court conference to discuss the matter has been scheduled for Aug. 22. Reince Priebus, the head of the Republican National Committee, has urged the department to release the emails before the elections.

Waiting until after the elections shows how politically oriented and corrupt this government is in hiding their candidate from potential indictments.

The public is watching! Let's just hope enough of us are smart enough and willing to vote accordingly to take our country back from this corruption!

If they're willing to release it there probably isn't much that can't be explained away in the contents. No "smoking gun" in other words. Came across a PBS article the other day that described how Hillary's staffers told anyone who questioned the private server set up that it had been cleared and not to bring it up anymore. Turns out it hadn't been cleared and wouldn't have been if they'd asked.
