Top Ten Emails From The November Clinton State Department Email Release

Yesterday, the State Department released 7,800 more pages of Hillary Clinton’s State Department emails. Before Clinton’s emails were released 325 more were classified, the “highest rate yet.” This brings the total number of classified Clinton emails up to 999.

The release of these emails once again underscores Hillary Clinton’s flawed tenure as Secretary of State. Her failed record, as well as her unethical and untrustworthy behavior are consistently exhibited in the emails released by the State Department yesterday. Here is a breakdown of the top ten emails from the just released tranche:

1) Clinton called caucus voters “creatures of the parties’ extremes.”


2) Hillary Clinton’s State Department staff kept a very close eye on the number of countries she had visited as Secretary of State.

Hillary Clinton’s Unethical Behavior As Secretary of State

4) Hillary Clinton asked Doug Band to forward to Bill Clinton a report on Northern Ireland politics.


5) Bernard Schwartz was interested in raising money for a Hillary Rodham Clinton School of Public and International Affairs. In 2002 Schwartz came to a $14 million civil settlement with the Justice Department over his unethical dealings with China.
