Now Hillary Clinton’s being compared to President Richard Nixon by one of the two reporters famous for breaking the scandal that brought Nixon down. How much worse is the e-mail mess going to get?
The Washington Post’s Bob Woodward laid it out Monday: “You’ve got a massive amount of data. It, in a way, reminds me of the Nixon tapes: thousands of hours of secretly recorded conversations that Nixon thought were exclusively his.”
Then came ABC News’ report that a backup server likely holds all the e-mails Clinton said she’d deleted — which could open up a whole new front in the probe.
More bad news: The State Department has flagged another 305 Hillary e-mails as likely containing classified information. This, despite Clinton’s claim that such info never touched the personal account she used for all her government business.
State also confessed it just found nearly 18,000 e-mails from Hillary aide Phillipe Reines to 34 media outlets that Gawker requested in a Freedom of Information Act filing in 2013. Until now, State had said the e-mails didn’t exist.
