For weeks, as the public has learned more about the full extent of embattled Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton’s reckless use of a home email server, supporters like Catherine Cortez Masto have been surprisingly silent about their support for Clinton. But a new court order demanding the release of even more Clinton emails shows that this scandal is not going away:
“In an order late on Wednesday, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson told the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) to hand over to the Republican National Committee (RNC) whatever records it could as part of an RNC’s open records lawsuit on July 11.” (Judge orders Obama administration to release new Clinton emails, The Hill, Julian Hattem, June 2, 2016)
While standing firmly behind Clinton through Nevada’s primary chaos, Catherine Cortez Masto still has yet to comment on Clinton’s email scandal. As the former Attorney General of Nevada, is she willing to overlook the former Secretary’s careless and possibly criminal actions that are being investigated by the FBI? Catherine Cortez Masto’s willingness to dismiss Clinton’s wrongdoing warrants an explanation.
