Hillary turned over her server to the FBI, but it's blank

Hillary turned over her server to the FBI, but it's blank

If it feels like the Hillary Clinton email scandal has been dragging on forever, it almost has. Do you know the first official inquiry by the federal government into her private emails was more than a year ago? And, it was about emails she sent in 2012.

The lingering controversy is only getting more damaging for the presidential hopeful. It's also getting a lot weirder.

The latest twist on Hillary Clinton's emails is that the much-talked-about email server that had been in her New York state home was handed over this week to the FBI. But the server is blank.

There's nothing on the server, which has been sitting in a warehouse in New Jersey since 2013. Who knows if the FBI will be able to dig anything out of it. (Read our tip for wiping your old PC's hard drive clean.)

But the FBI has good reason to be poking around. In the summer of 2014, the State Department first realized it didn't have Hillary Clinton's email records. It was conducting an investigation into the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attacks on the United States Embassy. Just this week, a U.S. intelligence official said at least two of Clinton's recently emails are classified as top-secret information.

Three years and counting after Benghazi and the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination is still handing over tens of thousands of emails, slowly. And, she says, many more emails were deleted long ago.
