Hooray! If it’s 9 p.m. on the last day of the month, that must mean it’s time for another massive court-ordered dump of Hillary Clinton’s State Department emails. Fox News’ Ed Henry has something interesting to share, even if it’s just one word from the former secretary of state: Yes, go ahead and give the White House Chief of Staff (then Rahm Emanuel) my email address, she decrees.
Besides the fact that we still can’t get over that [email protected] address (“Do you mind if we call you H-Rod?”), we note that the request is passed on to “H” by Cheryl Mills. Why does that name sound familiar? Because she made her name as Hillary’s “document sifter.” As investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson wrote in the Daily Signal last fall:
To [whistleblower] Sonya Gilliam, a recent account of improper sorting of Benghazi-related documents at the State Department brought back vivid memories of her own encounters with high-level government officials who withheld, deleted or destroyed public records.
And one name stood out for its familiarity: Cheryl Mills.
A former deputy assistant secretary of state had told The Daily Signal that Mills was present during an after-hours document operation in a basement room of the State Department in October 2012. Mills was chief of staff to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
We wonder how many emails to the secretary of state bounced back because of that ridiculous (and corrupt) private server and unofficial address.
At least she was always there for that 3 a.m. phone call, right?
