Leaked Emails: Lawyer Privately Told Clinton Campaign Hillary’s Email Scandal ‘Smacks Of Acting Above The Law’
Attorney Erika Rottenberg said in a 2015 bombshell email to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign that her inexplicable decision to send secure documents on a private email server and then further delete documents without consulting anyone “smacks of acting above the law.”
