‘My Emails Are So Boring’: Clinton Again Brushes Off Ongoing Investigation Into Email Server
Even though it feels as if the email controversy has been raging for years, the email woes are still not over for Hillary Clinton.
On Monday, a federal judge established a schedule for the release of 14,900 documents exchanged between Clinton and her top aides during her time as Secretary of State. Although the State Department had originally announced its plans to release the documents (many of them direct emails) by mid-October, Judge James Boasberg of DC ruled that the documents should be unveiled sooner, at the request and pressure from conservative advocacy group Judicial Watch.
James Comey, the FBI Director, said in July that the Bureau, “discovered several thousand work-related e-mails that were not in the group of 30,000 that were returned by Secretary Clinton to State in 2014.”
However, despite the raging controversy that continues to steal headline away from her bid to win the Presidency, the Democratic nominee is brushing off the concerns.
Last night speaking to Jimmy Kimmel, Clinton said simply, “Jimmy, my emails are so boring. I mean, I’m embarrassed about that. They’re so boring.”
“So, we’ve already released, what, 30,000 plus? So what’s a few more?” she continued.
“So in the end you’re not concerned that there’s something that Donald Trump will be able to use against you? That comes in in the last second?” asked Kimmel, indicating that the time frame for the judge’s release order coincides with the beginning of the presidential debates.
“He makes up stuff to use against me,” Clinton joked. “If he were to stick with reality, I wouldn’t have a worry in the world.”
