The Hillary Clinton email scandal is growing worse by the day. We now know that she not only used a private email account in her time at the State Department but she even hosted it on a private server in her New York residence.
In classic Clintonian doublespeak, Hillary tweeted just before midnight last night that she really, truly, wanted everyone to see her emails, so she told the State Department to release them.
But the issue is not what she turned over to State, but what she didn’t. Hillary’s team selected what was turned over to the State Department, so her tweet is a complete distraction that doesn’t address the problem:
Other issues involve why she set up a home-based email server for official business, which gave her complete control over access in violation of public records laws.
Many conservatives are so beaten down by the liberal media bias we’ve witnessed over the years that they believe this will be glossed over and ignored but the story has teeth. The New York Times, the Washington Post and even Politico are filing daily reports.
Last night on The Kelly File, Megyn Kelly – who is a lawyer – even raised the question of whether or not Hillary committed a felony. Judge Andrew Napolitano said if that’s the case, she would be legally barred from further public service.

Young voters look at Hillary Clinton and see a woman who ran against Obama and ultimately ended up serving in his administration but scandals like this are par for the course with the Clintons.
As Mollie Hemingway of The Federalist recently pointed out, everything old is new again:
1996 Called, Wants Its Clinton Fundraising And Document Scandals Back
I know that some of you were too young to remember the 1990s, but this was basically what happened with the Clintons all the time. That revelation of a discovery of law firm billing documents that had been subpoenaed by federal investigators two years prior (the Clintons claimed they didn’t have them) came not 24 hours after another revelation of a missing document.
That document was a 2-year-old memo that admitted Hillary Clinton had, according to the Times, “played a far greater role in the dismissal of employees of the White House travel office than the Administration has acknowledged.”
On a final note, I’d just like to point out that Hillary accused the Bush administration of using “secret email accounts” in 2007.
Because it’s different when they do it.
UPDATE (WAJ): Hillary’s “look, squirrel” routine seems to be working, look at the headlines:
