A new batch of emails from Hillary Clinton’s days at the State Department show her interacting with lobbyists, business interests and Clinton Foundation donors and business interests as secretary of state.
The conservative legal watchdog Judicial Watch, a conservative legal group based in Washington, D.C., obtained the emails from its lawsuit against the State Department. The department ultimately made public the 44 previously unreleased emails that Clinton did not include with 30,000 private messages delivered to the government last March, Fox News reported.
The new Clinton emails include a February 2009 message to her from Stephen Roach, then-chairman of Morgan Stanley Asia, saying he planned to testify to Congress that week and was “happy to help in any way I can.” Roach later met with Clinton over the summer for 30 minutes, according to Clinton calendars obtained by The Associated Press.
In another email, Clinton’s chief of staff, Cheryl Mills, informed her that National Security Agency and State Department officials discussed an attempt to develop a modified blackberry for Clinton that might be used when she worked in a restricted State Department office that did not allow private phones.
In the parallel universe where Republicans don’t step on their own dicks, this would be the news of the week. https://t.co/A68JeUoU1C

The emails were discovered after a search of computer files from Clinton aide, Huma Abedin. The 246 pages of Abedin messages were turned over to Judicial Watch.
