As impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump begin to ramp up, the State Department is dredging up its investigation into a subject that dominated the news during the 2016 election: former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's emails.

An FBI investigation previously condemned Clinton's use of a private email server for State Department business during the Obama era, but assured that her activity wasn't criminal.


Nevertheless, Trump—whose promises to imprison Clinton were a mainstay of his 2016 presidential campaign—has maintained that Clinton committed a crime by deleting 33,000 emails before turning the contents of her server over to the FBI. Now Trump is using the State Department to deepen the probe into the email saga.

Clinton, who recently announced her support for Trump's impeachment, called the President a "corrupt human tornado."

2020 Presidential candidate and Democratic Senator from California, Kamala Harris, defended Clinton on Twitter, assuring that she'd served her country loyally every step of the way.

Clinton thanked Harris on Twitter, responding with her version of a popular refrain amidst the chaos of Trump's presidency: "But her emails."

People cheered for Clinton's masterful trolling.

Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by nearly 3 million votes in 2016.

The Trump campaign was roasted recently when it sent a cease and desist order to a PAC called Priority USA for using audio clips of Trump in an ad to highlight the numerous times he dismissed the virus that's caused a public health crisis in the United States.

Now, the campaign's attempt at revenge with a recent tweet may turn out to be ill advised.

President Donald Trump and his administration's reaction to the global pandemic has been widely panned for its original dismissal of the virus's threat and the reluctance to use federal powers to assist afflicted states.

Trump responds to these criticisms by reminding people every chance he gets that he suspended travel from China—the epicenter of the virus at the time—on February 2.

For weeks, on-air personalities at Fox News parroted President Donald Trump and his administration's dismissals of the virus that's upended daily life in the United States.

The President finally started acknowledging the threat posed by the virus, yet still refuses to take responsibility for his administration's lack of preparedness. Despite multiple warnings that the United States wasn't prepared for a pandemic, the administration took little action in the early stages of the outbreak, when containing it was more feasible.
