If I had posted this headline 4 years ago, no one would have believed it.
Hillary Clinton is one of those people who seems to have an iron-grip on D.C. politics and the entirety of the system itself; she is one of those elite power players that many are just too afraid to confront.
All of that seems to have changed though…
According to the latest reports, Special Counsel John Durham is demanding that the 2016 Clinton campaign and the DNC hand over unredacted documents…
The very fact that it has come to this indicates that she is not nearly as immune as she once was; the rope seems to be tightening around Hillary Clinton:
John Durham wants a federal court to order Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, the DNC, Fusion GPS, and Perkins Coie to hand over unredacted versions of documents for a judge to decide whether their claims of attorney-client privilege hold up.

The New York Post reports:
In a 23-page filing this week, Durham asked that a federal judge order the documents be handed over for in camera review, arguing that the privilege claims lack “any connection to actual or expected litigation or the provision of legal advice.”

The special counsel said the entities have improperly held back hundreds of documents under unfounded claims of attorney-client privilege.
Durham said that out of 1,455 documents withheld by Fusion GPS under claimed attorney-client privilege or work product protections, only 18 emails and attachments actually involved a lawyer, the Post said.
