Hillary Clinton exchanged nearly two-dozen top secret emails from her unsecured, private server with three senior aides, the State Department revealed in documents released to VICE News late Friday.The only thing shocking to me was that she carried out State Dept. business at all. I figured she'd delegate all that icky stuff out to Huma or some intern while she stuffed the coffers of the Clinton Foundation.
The 22 emails were sent and received by Clinton in 2011 and 2012. Clinton discussed classified information with her deputy chief of staff, Jacob Sullivan, her chief of staff, Cheryl Mills, and Deputy Secretary of State William Burns. A majority of the top secret emails are email chains between Sullivan and Clinton.
This is the first time the State Department has revealed the identities of the officials who exchanged classified information with Clinton through her private email server.
One of the top secret emails from 2012 was described by the State Department as an "email chain originating with email from a State Department official to multiple State Department officials, concluding with message to Jacob Sullivan from Secretary Clinton." Another from the same year was an "email from a State Department official to multiple State Department officials, forwarded by Jacob Sullivan to Secretary Clinton and Cheryl Mills." Only one classified email was exchanged with Burns. State described that one as an "email from a State Department official to multiple State Department officials, forwarded by Jacob Sullivan to Secretary Clinton, Cheryl Mills, and William Bums."
Now, onto Kaine: NYT: Hillary picked Kaine to narrow gap with white males … and due to her “responsibility gene” If she has a responsibility gene, it's recessive and heterozygous. And, yeah, it's pretty obvious part of the Kaine strategy is to take white men off their guard. Don't be fooled! According to the WaPo Kaine’s VP pick greeted by blowback from progressive groups. Althouse: Tim Kaine: "I’ll enforce the death penalty as governor and I’m against same-sex marriage." But back in that era, Obama and Hillary said the same things.

Instapundit shouts: YOU DON’T HAVE TO FALL IN LOVE, YOU JUST HAVE TO FALL IN LINE: Clinton VP pick could face liberal ire.

The vetting correspondence highlights a February 2016 Miami Herald article, which claims federal prosecutors were “cowed by Epstein’s high powered attorneys, including Roy Black.” It goes on to say that that was part of the reason the billionaire sex offender received an extraordinarily lenient sentence despite reportedly abusing at least 34 underage girls.DNC APPROVED PLANTING SATIRICAL CRAIGSLIST AD TO MOCK TRUMP, LEAKED EMAILS SHOW - Fictitious job listing says Trump "may greet you with a kiss on the lips or grope you under the meeting table" But no dirty tricks from the left.

Via Instapundit: TWO FORECASTS for the Democratic Convention.
Evidence of brain damage? Hillary Clinton's strange convulsions during interview - tries to play it off.In many ways I expect the Democratic National Convention to be more of the same. Oh, I doubt that the convention will blazon the Clinton name larger than the American flag across the stage as she speaks. But you can expect her to paint a republic in crisis, one where women are practically indentured servants of their male managers, where the police routinely use civilians for target practice, and of course, where Republicans roam among us, tirelessly impoverishing the poor and oppressing the oppressed. Who can save us now? Only one person, of course. It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s — HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON!So it’s business as usual, then.
That case will, of course, be a lot more challenging to make given that Barack Obama has been president for eight years — which is why to hear Democrats talk, you’d often think that George W. Bush was just completing his fourth term in office. So they will spend the week pinning America’s flaws on Republicans.
Pretty odd, but I think it's just a startle response.
