    The Clinton email scandal is so boring because it isn’t even a scandal. It’s so boring I can barely string two sentences together about it. The only thing remarkable about it is the white hot blaze of hatred that some can bring to this subject, no doubt because they already hated her and are gunning for her.

    She didn’t want people to be able to paw through her personal private correspondence. So she set up a system in which her personal private correspondence was intermingled with work-related but unclassified correspondence. That was a mistake. She ultimately realized that, and she then had to pay high priced lawyers to try to undo that mistake and separate out the two sets of emails, and give the government the ones it was supposed to have. The high priced lawyers did so, and the people who wanted to paw through her personal correspondence are in a fury that she got out of the trap she made for herself.
