After all the assurances from Hillary Clinton that she turned over all of her job-related emails to the State Department, I read (buried on page 12 of The News Tribune, 6-26) that, in fact, that was not true.
In response to a subpoena from the committee, Sidney Blumenthal, a longtime confidant and adviser of Clinton's, handed over about 60 copies of emails he had exchanged with her concerning the 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya. He was not working for the State Department at the time those emails were exchanged. The House committee has not been able to find 15 of those among the ones Clinton submitted.
Two questions seem pertinent:
• How many more emails does Blumenthal have that he has not handed over?
Never miss a local story.
• How many more of her contacts, U.S. or foreign, have exchanged emails with her? How many of those did she delete because they were "personal"?
The president of this country should have many admirable qualities, and honesty should be one of them.
