Hillary Clinton is probably delighted with all the attention Donald Trump is receiving, allowing her troubled campaign to fly under most people’s radar. But not mine.
If you have been out of the Hillary loop for a while now, let me update you. The investigation into her e-mail server continues apace, and despite the protestations, it is a potential criminal investigation. Not only did she conduct official government business on a personal server, but it is now obvious she lied about the e-mails having nothing to do with national security.
Further, she wants everyone to just trust her that she turned over everything relevant to her time in office, and we are to ignore that she deleted more than 30,000 of those e-mails, ostensibly because they were personal.

All things being equal, this should be a golden opportunity for Republicans—if they don’t blow it again.
