Former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean (D.) told MSNBC on Tuesday that nothing scandalous has been found in Hillary Clinton’s emails and it is unlikely anything will be found in the newly-uncovered 15,000 documents that will be released later this year.
The FBI discovered a set of 15,000 emails during the course of their investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server. Clinton claimed she turned over all of her work-related emails from her tenure as secretary of state, but the FBI uncovered thousands more. The State Department will release the emails by the end of this year.

Hall pointed out that no one has seen the emails uncovered by the FBI, including Dean.
Dean interrupted Hall to say, "We have seen 30,000 emails so far and not one damn thing has been found in any of them."
Hall then asked Dean not to swear on her show. Dean laughed and said he was "only using what [Sen.] Bernie Sanders said," referring to his famous line from the first Democratic primary debate.
"No one can say with certainty what’s in those emails, is my point. Do you agree with that?" Hall Said, referencing the nearly 15,000 emails recently discovered by the FBI.
"We have seen nothing in 30,000 of them. I doubt we’re going to see anything of substance in the next 14,000. This is all the Republicans have," Dean said.
The email scandal has followed Clinton’s presidential campaign since the issue surfaced last year. The emails revealed Clinton sent and received classified information from her personal email server. Clinton’s emails have also raised questions about her aides giving Clinton Foundation donors access to the State Department.
