Hillary Clinton, just as she was running against then-candidate Donald Trump for president in 2016, a race she ultimately lost, making her a two-time loser in the race for the Oval Office, there was her email scandal.
Seems she had put national secrets on an unsecured server in her own home. Then while they were being investigated, she scrubbed thousands of messages from computers, and even used a special program to make sure they were gone forever.
Ultimately, she escaped any reprimand for her actions because of a Democrat-friendly bureaucracy in Washington, D.C., what Republicans have called the Deep State.
But now it appears she's being pushed from the top of the list of those with such scandals.
A report from Just the News revealed the National Archives has found more than 82,000 private emails authored by Joe Biden under different names.
The report described the governmental confirmation as a "stunning admission." And it explained they could be a great help to several ongoing federal and congressional investigations into possible criminal behavior by the Biden family.
Among the focal points is the family's penchant for influence-peddling, possible bribes, and more.
It was the Southeastern Legal Foundation's Freedom of Information Act lawsuit that produced the confirmation of the emails.
"We're duty bound to make sure that everybody's following the law here. And it sure looks like that's questionable at this moment," explained, Rep. Scott Perry, R-Pa.
He's on the House Oversight Committee which already is looking into the grounds for an impeachment of Joe Biden.
"Perry told the John Solomon Reports podcast that lawmakers in Congress must take action to ensure all the emails are preserved given the history of Hillary Clinton’s team trying to delete her private emails or to destroy the devices they were stored on," the report said.
"I think we got to make sure that, you know, that Joe Biden doesn't have a hammer, sitting close to his phone, or, you know, I don't know what they smashed [them] with hammers, I don't know, if they set them on fire, they use bleach bit on the server," he said.
Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., had raised the alarm about Biden's use of private email channels several years ago.
"It’s stunning, but when you consider the lawlessness of this administration, I guess it's not surprising," he said during an interview on the "Just the News, No Noise" television show Monday evening.
Johnson confirmed he and others seeking information about Joe Biden's behavior have been "stiffed" for a long time.
The National Archives has told a court proceeding that it has 82,000 pages Biden sent or received during his vice presidential tenure on three private pseudonym accounts.
It said, to a court, "NARA has completed a search for potentially responsive documents and is currently processing those documents for the purpose of producing non-exempt portions of any responsive records on a monthly rolling basis. Given the scope of Plaintiff’s FOIA request, which seeks copies of all emails in three separate accounts over eight years, the volume of potentially responsive records is necessarily large. NARA has identified approximately 82,000 pages of potentially responsive documents, and it is currently processing those documents and preparing any non-exempt responsive documents for production on a rolling basis."
Government officials are required by law to preserve all emails that relate to government actions even if they are on private accounts. And that's supposed to be rare.
"Eighty-two thousand pages is way more than very limited circumstances,” said Michael Chamberlain, of the group Protect the Public's Trust, noting Biden would have to average 30 pages a day of private emails if the figures from the Archives are correct, .
The report noted the history of the email scandal record: "A State Department inspector general report in summer 2016 found Mrs. Clinton improperly used a secret private email server stored in a bathroom closet in her family’s home in Chappaqua, N.Y., to regularly conduct government business and later deleted many of the emails she considered to be private. Secretary Clinton produced to the Department from her email account approximately 55,000 hard-copy pages, representing approximately 30,000 emails that she believed related to official business."
Clinton included secret and top-secret documents on her own personal system.
