Hillary Clinton is giving her best effort to troll President Donald Trump after the FBI raided Mar-a-Lago Monday evening.
The failed presidential candidate, who for years faced allegations that she illegally mishandled classified documents on a private email server, advertised “But her emails” hats and T-shirts following the raid.
“Every ‘But her emails’ hat or shirt sold helps [Onward Together] partners defend democracy, build a progressive bench, and fight for our values,” Clinton tweeted Tuesday.
The Blaze reported:
While serving as secretary of state in the Obama administration, Clinton caused controversy by using a private email server hosted at her New York residence for official government communications, in potential violation of federal record-keeping law. She exchanged more than 60,000 emails on this private server, communicating with top aides including Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills, Jake Sullivan, and Sidney Blumenthal.
A 2016 FBI investigation into Clinton’s email practices found that more than 100 emails stored on her private server contained classified information, including 65 emails investigators determined were “Secret” and 22 deemed “Top Secret.” Another 2,100 emails were retroactively deemed to contain classified information and were censored or withheld completely from public release by the State Department.
Clinton’s apparent mishandling of classified information became a major point of contention in the 2016 presidential election. Trump vigorously attacked Clinton over her emails, while the Clinton campaign insisted she had violated no laws and that the entire issue was a distraction. Clinton in turn attacked Trump over his alleged cooperation with Russia to win the election. As it turned out, Trump was also under FBI investigation based on opposition research paid for by the Clinton campaign that was later debunked.
Fox News added:
FBI agents executed a search warrant of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago property on Monday reportedly seeking classified documents he allegedly took from the White House when he left office in 2021. The search warrant was conducted in connection with the National Archives, according to a senior government official.
Trump’s camp and Republicans accused the FBI of acting on behalf of Democrats to crush their political enemies after recent polling showed Trump as a strong contender to run for a second term as commander in chief again in 2024.
Marc Elias, a top lawyer for Clinton’s presidential campaign, suggested that the FBI raid could bar Trump from seeking public office ever again.
