Last night the State Department released 7,121 pages of emails pulled from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s personal server. 125 of those messages released contain information now “upgraded” to classified status:
…the sheer number of emails that have been redacted stands as the latest example of how much sensitive material was contained in Clinton’s email transactions. The FBI is conducting an investigation into whether classified information that passed through Clinton’s so-called “homebrew” server was mishandled. Clinton, the Democratic presidential front-runner, has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing.
The emails with redacted sections discussed global issues in countries from Haiti to China to Sudan.
One April 2010 e-mail from Clinton’s top aide Huma Abedin containing a report from then-ambassador to China Jon Huntsman was redacted entirely, while a message from that September about “calls” Clinton said she was willing to make regarding trilateral talks over Sudan was likewise blacked out.
Other classified emails contain discussions about a potential presidential election in Haiti, meetings between U.S. and Cuban officials regarding aid to Haiti in the aftermath of a devastating earthquake in that country, discussions of a conversation between the Russian and American ambassadors to the United Nations, and elections for the presidency of the International Development Bank.
Unsurprisingly, the mainstream media did a terrible job covering the release.
So far, the content that has been reviewed thus far is incriminating both from a transparency standpoint, and from a PR standpoint. Sharyl Attkisson found several e-mails that should have been released back in 2012 as part of a large-scale FOIA request for information about Benghazi. Several other outlets, including The Blaze, noted at least one highly-redacted email that instructed its recipients to both not forward, and to delete the message after reading:
Still other emails hint at a total lack of transparency from key players in what has been billed as the most transparent administration of all time. Right off the bat, we see more evidence that the State Department had no clue what Hillary Clinton was doing with regards to e-mails:

What did she speak to Michael Bloomberg about? The world may never know:

One of the 125 or so newly classified emails contained information about conversations with the IAEA:

All of which of course led to an extremely meta-observation about using a rogue server in the course of running the country:

Of course, Team Hillary tried to rapid response-away the effects of the doc dump, but we know better than to let ourselves become distracted by…gefilte fish?
