White House To Block E-Mail Release

News Services-
                The White House will try to block the release of a number of e-mails between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Obama, citing precedent invoked by previous presidents to keep their communications confidential. That’s odd, I wonder why? Richard Nixon’s attempts to keep his communications confidential didn’t turn out well, but his attempts at obfuscation led the news for months on end, leading to his impeachment and resignation, whereas everyone now seems to agree that Hillary’s e-mail cover-up is much ado about nothing. I mean, we know the Clintons are crooked, so what?
                The State Department discovered the e-mails as part of its effort to release the former secretary’s e-mails. Obama’s correspondence was forwarded for review to the White House, which ‘decided against releasing them.’

                Pretty much like how Richard Nixon’s White House ‘decided against releasing’ every minute of his Oval Office tapes.
