Matthew Continetti Discusses Revived Case Into Hillary Clinton’s Emails

Free Beacon Editor-in-Chief Matthew Continetti discussed the revived case into Hillary Clinton's emails on Fox News on Wednesday.

A federal court is reviving the case into thousands of missing emails that the Clinton team deleted from her private server during her time as secretary of state. Clinton has long claimed the missing emails contain nothing more than details about daughter Chelsea Clinton's wedding, yoga poses, and recipes.

Continetti said the revived case is another indication that the Clinton email scandal will never go away.

"Thanks to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals it looks like it will last even into the Trump administration. The court is basically saying that the secretary of state has the power to ask the attorney general to use basically the FBI and other law enforcement techniques to recover whatever emails may be left on that private server," Continetti said. "Now the Clinton people say that they gave everything that they didn't delete, right? But still, some people, including Judicial Watch, which was behind this very successful lawsuit, are saying, no, we need to do everything we can to figure out if there are any emails yet to be released to the public."

Continetti said he expected Trump to allow his nominee for attorney general, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R., Ala.), to continue the investigation into Clinton and her emails.
