1200 MORE Clinton emails deemed personal and not released

The HillMore than 1,200 emails turned over to the State Department from Hillary Clinton have been deemed "personal" and will not be made public. The ruling from the government's chief records official followed a request from the State Department to analyze approximately 30,000 emails from the former secretary of State’s private server.

Remember, these emails have already been picked over by Clinton's personal staff to ensure that "personal" emails were removed and not turned over to the State Department. Now, the State Department is itself declaring that even more emails are "personal" and will not be released or stored as part of the public record. While the State Department is a more neutral and appropriate party to be conducting the review (now that Clinton is now longer head of the department, at least), I still think it's interesting and suspicious that more emails are being withheld. I suspect they are just using it as an excuse to hide information that damages someone other than Hillary.

But we will likely never know.
