Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton appeared to be gloating after the news that former President Trump was indicted on seven federal charges related to the mishandling of classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago home.
In September 2022, Clinton claimed that investigators found “zero” classified emails on her private email server, although a 2018 government report said 193 emails that were classified when they were redacted were sent to or from your server.
Clinton was investigated by the FBI in 2015 for keeping classified information on his private email server at home.
Then-FBI Director James Comey had said publicly that Clinton mishandled classified information, but he declined to recommend prosecution and the Justice Department declined to move forward.
On Friday morning, Clinton took to Twitter to promote the merchandise with the tag line “BUT THE EMAILS.”
“Returning this in light of recent news: Get a limited edition But Her Emails hat and support @onwardtogether, groups working to strengthen our democracy,” she wrote.

Onward Together is Clinton’s organization that “advances progressive values and works to build a brighter future for generations to come.”
The website features a collection of “BUT YOUR EMAILS” merchandise with the phrase printed on mugs, T-shirts, baseball hats and stickers with prices ranging from $12 to $32.
One Twitter user responded to the tweet, saying: “The arrogance of knowing you violated the very laws Trump is being accused of breaking…and gloating about getting away with it…is blatant even for you”.

Intelligence Community Inspector General I. Charles McCullough III outlined the findings of the Clinton Document Review by intelligence agencies that identified “several dozen” additional classified emails, including specific intelligence known as “special access programs.”
According to 2018 Department of Justice Inspector General’s Report“81 email chains containing approximately 193 individual emails that were classified from CONFIDENTIAL to TOP SECRET at the time the emails were drafted on UNCLASSIFIED systems and sent to Clinton’s personal server or from your servant.”

Clinton ran unsuccessfully against Trump for president in 2016.
On Thursday, Trump revealed via social media that he has been indicted by the DOJ on federal charges stemming from Special Counsel Jack Smith’s months of research.
Trump is listed in the indictment, which has not been disclosed, as a criminal defendant charged with at least seven counts of obstruction of justice, conspiracy and unlawful retention of classified government material. He has been ordered to appear in federal court in Miami on Tuesday.
This is the second time Trump has been impeached this year. Trump pleaded not guilty in April after being charged by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg with 34 counts of falsifying business records in the first degree.
NARA told Congress in February 2022 that Trump brought 15 boxes of presidential records to his personal residence in Florida. NARA recovered the 15 boxes from Mar-a-Lago and “identified items marked as classified national security information within the boxes.” The matter was referred to the Department of Justice by NARA.
These boxes allegedly contained “classified national security information” and official correspondence between Trump and foreign heads of state.
The classified material that was seized by the FBI during the FBI raid in August included a letter to Trump from former President Obama, a letter from Kim Jong Un, a birthday dinner menu and a cocktail napkin

The government conducted the search in response to what it believed to be a violation of federal laws: 18 USC 793: Collection, Transmission, or Loss of Defense Information; 18 USC 2071 — concealment, removal or mutilation; and 18 USC 1519: destruction, alteration, or falsification of records in federal investigations.
The allegation of “collecting, transmitting or losing defense information” is framed under the Espionage Act.
