According to Politico, Democrats are now debating the size of a Clinton victory, and whether they should shift strategy to go for a landslide.
The Washington Post now reports that the FBI probe of Hillary Clinton’s e-mails uncovered an additional 15,000 documents that were “not previously disclosed by the former secretary of state’s lawyers”. It is not clear whether any or all of these documents are work related, or were from the batch she deleted. Lawyers from Judicial Watch are negotiating with the State Department for a plan to release the documents to the public before the election.
Earlier, Judicial Watch had released another 725 pages of previously undisclosed email exchanges between Clinton and Huma Abedin. These documents included emails about a meeting that Doug Band from the Clinton Foundation was working to set up between Crown Prince Salman of Bahrain and then Secretary Clinton. The Crown Prince was a major contributor to the Clinton Foundation. By 2010 he had made contributions totaling more than $32 million. The Crown Prince got his meeting.
In the meantime Colin Powell appears to be getting a little tired of Clinton pretending that her email behavior was the same as his. After the New York Times reported that Clinton told the FBI that Powell told her to use her own email except for classified communications as he had, Powell responded. He said he had no recollection of the conversation.
It is true that Powell wrote to Clinton describing how he used his personal AOL account for unclassified communication. But Powell has objected to Clinton’s characterization of his memo, reportedly saying that “[t]he truth is, she was using [the private email server] for a year before I sent her a memo telling her what I did.”
