Thirty-thousands emails here, another 15,000 emails there. Accusation of “pay-to-play” while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state.
What does it add up to for the Democratic presidential hopeful?
“… Not one damn thing,” former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean, himself a Democratic presidential candidate back in 2003, said Tuesday on MSNBC.
The FBI said Tuesday it found another 15,000 emails during its investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server, though Clinton claimed she’s given authorities all work-related emails from her time as secretary of state.
The State Department is expected to release the emails by the end of the year, after the November election.
“There is not a politician anywhere in American that hasn’t met with people who big donors,” Dean told MSNBC’s Tamron Hall. “The question is what was actually done for them other than a meeting, and the answer is nothing.
Hall challenged Dean, saying he has not actually seen all of the emails.
“No one can say with certainty what’s in those emails, is my point. Do you agree with that?” Hall asked Dean.
“We have seen nothing in 30,000 of them. I doubt we’re going to see anything of substance in the next 14,000. This is all the Republicans have,” Dean said.
Clinton has been under a cloud since the emails first became public last year. Republican nominee Donald Trump on Tuesday called for a special prosecutor to see if crimes were committed.
