Hillary Clinton’s Email Server. How and why it was created, and the players involved in it’s construction. And it’s scandal and eventual destruction.
Last Friday, the FBI released the final batch of what amounted to nearly 250 pages of interview notes and reports collected during the course of its investigation.
