Supposedly inevitable Democratic nominee for president Hillary Clinton has had it rough this week. In case you missed it here’s a recap:
First, the State Department released another 3,000 Clinton emails Tuesday and evidence emerged that the White House was aware of Hillary’s private server, something that has previously been denied.
Second, “a small number” of emails were withheld from the House Select Committee on Benghazi. This doesn’t make the situation any better for Clinton, since everyone knows committee chairman Trey Gowdy will not be satisfied to let it rest there.
Third, evidence suggests that Clinton edited the emails before turning them over to the State Department. Additionally, she may have withheld some “work-related” emails from release.
If the email-related stories weren’t enough, it looks as though Hillary will have more competition for nomination than originally anticipated. Bernie Sanders, who is surging in New Hampshire according to a recent poll, brought in a larger than excepted $15 million.
Finally, another Democrat sought to challenge her for the nomination: former Virginia senator Jim Webb announced for president yesterday.
It’s been a bad week for the Hillary Clinton campaign. Let’s hope there are many more to come.
