While the content of the emails is relatively mundane enough – CNN reports it was simply Petraeus and Clinton getting to know each other – the problem here is with timing.
“The press has to have somebody every election – we’re going to give them you“. The email server has since been turned over to the FBI, where investigators have been able to recover both the personal and work-related emails. “That was when she started using http://clintonemail.com.”
A State Department official said it was not unusual for State job applicants to be in touch with the department’s financial disclosure officials over their filings.
The new emails are the latest developments in the scandal, which centers around the question of whether the State Department mishandled classified information.
Additionally, Kirby said the agency will incorporate the newly discovered emails into a review of record retention practices that Clinton’s successor, Secretary of State John Kerry, initiated in March.

“It’s a fundraiser, so obviously people are there to support her, but I really think she was beloved there”, Hauser said.
“What’s hypocritical about it is the fact that climate change is no less important of an issue now than it was in 2009 when she approved that pipeline”, Urqhart said, referring to her reasoning against Keystone XL.
Hillary Clinton has so far avoided engaging with Sanders, only saying his name at a public campaign event for the first time earlier this month.
She said that if Biden doesn’t get in she will be “110% behind Hillary”, but says that her decision was motivated by wanting “to make sure we have the best chance possible to retain the White House“.
Officials said the emails in no way dealt with classified material. The committee broadened its scope after examining tens of thousands of documents more specifically focused on the Benghazi attack.
