Hillary Clinton Releases Emails, Income, Medical Records

Hillary Clinton’s emails, medical records and income were released in a classic Friday document dump, as the controversy over the former secretary of state’s private server and personal finances threatens to make her seem even less trustworthy in the eyes of voters.

Among the revelations from the latest release of Clinton emails and records:

•  She and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, earned $142 million between 2007 and 2014, according to tax records. They also paid nearly $44 million in federal taxes and donated $15 million to charity during that time.

• Hillary Clinton’s doctor declared her to be in “excellent physical condition and fit to serve as president,” having fully recovered from a concussion after fainting in December 2012. During treatment, doctors found a blood clot in a vein between the brain and skull behind the right ear and prescribed her medication, which she remains on today, to dissolve it.

While the treasure trove lacks the smoking gun Republicans are hoping for, GOP strategist Ford O’Connell said the controversy could continue to hurt her, especially if the Republican Congress opens a criminal probe.

“She is sinking faster than the Titanic right now in respect to honesty and trustworthiness,” O’Connell said. “Between that and the email situation, it’s really opening the door for Joe Biden to run.”
