A new batch of Hillary Clinton’s emails seems to be released every couple of months — but there are quite a few that somebody else already has its hands on.
Would you be surprised that it’s the same people providing asylum to Edward Snowden?
As LifeZette reports:
The Kremlin is considering whether or not to release some 20,000 hacked Clinton emails reportedly in its possession.
Russian security services apparently obtained the emails as part of their investigation into the Romanian hacker Marcel Lehel Lazar, known as “Guccifer” — now in U.S. custody in relation to the Clinton email scandal.
“There’s a debate going on in the Kremlin between the Foreign Ministry and the Intelligence Services about whether they should release the 20,000 of Mrs. Clinton’s emails that they have hacked into,” Judge Andrew Napolitano told Megyn Kelly on Monday.
Heck – Russia may be able to make a stronger case against Hillary than the FBI. As the article continues:
The FBI’s investigation has at times seemed almost farcical. On Monday, the State Department said it had apparently lost four years’ worth of emails from Brian Pagliano, Clinton’s IT head who set up the private server.
“Such records might shed light on his role in setting up Clinton’s server, and why he was granted immunity by the FBI,” said RNC Deputy Communications Director Raj Shah. “But it seems that his emails were either destroyed or never turned over, adding yet another layer to the secrecy surrounding his role.”
But if the State Department is unable (or unwilling) to provide materials to the FBI pertinent to its investigation, then perhaps the Russian government will oblige.
Considering Putin’s praise of Trump, I’m inclined to agree.
