MSNBC: ‘Explosive Revelations’ Still To Come In Hillary Email Saga [VIDEO]
MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough said that there are more “explosive revelations” to come out of the Hillary Clinton email saga on top of the announcement that there were 22 top secret emails on Clinton’s server Friday.
Monday on “Morning Joe,” panelist and Bloomberg Politics managing editor Mark Halperin said that even if Bernie Sanders loses today’s Iowa caucus he “can go forward with lots of money, with debates on the schedule and see are there are developments in the legal front that allow him to start to win even after tonight if he doesn’t win.” (VIDEO: MSNBC: FBI’s Hillary Investigation ‘Far More Advanced’ Than Public Knows)
Halperin argued, “There’s an undefined element in [the Democrat’s] campaign that will impact the campaign sooner or later and that’s what’s going to happen in the Justice Department. I mean, you can just sense among Democrats … they’re right on the edge of their seats trying to figure out what will happen and what determining factor that’s going to play in the nomination process.” (RELATED: Reports: Some Of Hillary Clinton’s Emails Are ‘Too Damaging’ To National Security To Release)
Scarborough then touted his claim from last Friday morning about how there were more revelations.
By the end of the day Friday, the State Department announced that they were unable to release 22 of Clinton’s emails because they would compromise national security if they were released, even in part. (RELATED: Rep. Issa: FBI ‘Would Like To Indict Both Huma [Abedin] And Hillary Clinton’)
Halperin added that there are “more problems with [Clinton’s] emails, more questions about how it was handled. Look, the legal calendar, we don’t know what it is. We know the political calendar, Bernie Sanders announced yesterday he’s raised $20 million this month. He’s forced Secretary Clinton to agree to more debates into the spring. So Bernie Sanders, even if he loses here tonight can go forward with lots of money, with debates on the schedule, and see are there are developments in the legal front that allow him to start to win even after tonight if he doesn’t win here.” (RELATED: State Dept.

“Everybody in the government, everybody in the media, everybody that runs anything is talking about how advanced this investigation is, and nobody’s telling the American people about it,” Scarborough argued. “So I had an executive in another network ask, ‘Is it safe to talk about it now?’ So we talked about it. And then that afternoon, explosive revelations came out, and there are more.” (RELATED: Four Sid Blumenthal Emails In Latest Clinton Release Are COMPLETELY Classified)
Panelist John Heilemann added, “And I’ll tell you, to me the most interesting thing about that is that in the last 48 hours when Bernie Sanders has been asked about the Hillary Clinton email thing, having famously in the debate a few months ago said, ‘Don’t worry about it. No one wants to hear about your emails.’ Asked about it a couple of days ago, he said, ‘Oh, I don’t think it’s irrelevant at all, there’s a process playing out here.’ Bernie Sanders now edging towards kind of retracting his ‘Nobody cares about your dam emails thing.’ You can easily imagine Sanders not attacking her personally on this but him now saying, ‘Hey look, this is something we have to think about and bring into a discussion in a more active way.'”
“When Bernie Sanders is hearing from top leaders in the Obama administration that this is further along than expected, he doesn’t want to be caught saying it’s not a big deal and then having the FBI suggest it is,” Scarborough said.

Another “Morning Joe” panelist, Mike Barnicle insisted, “There’s just too much buzz around it from all different levels of government, media, and everything to ignore it, and Bernie is no longer ignoring it.” (VIDEO: Bernie Sanders: Hillary Clinton Is ‘The Problem’)
