Freedom of Information Act is front and center today as the stories broke about Hillary Clinton hiding behind personal, private emails during her tenure as Secretary of State. She had no government email account so it seems which means it's very hard to get any information about what she said or did or directed during those years.
The story broke last night in the New York Times and has caused a lot of talk, a lot of shock, a lot of frustration. But the minute we turned on Morning Joe on MSNBC this morning and saw the ire directed at Clinton by the most liberal of the show's regulars we got the impression many democrats are happy about this story because they don't want Hillary running for president. They want Elizabeth Warren.
Politics. You just never now.
However, skirting the Freedom of Information Act rules by a high up official who surely knows the FOIA backward and forward, is purely done by someone who doesn't believe the rules apply to her. Problem is, you have to wonder how many government officials are doing the same thing.
I'd guess there are more than a few nervous political types watching this play out today.
