There hasn’t been much talk of Hillary’s multi-level email problem because of the media attention to all things Trump. But here’s a reminder that Hillary’s email scandal may be in a Trump-induced hibernation, but it has not gone away. The Hill reports: A pair of emails on Hillary Clinton’s private server was indeed “top…

It’s funny to watch Hillary Clinton attack empty slogans when her party is built on them.
