Bloomberg Politics’ John Heilemann said on Tuesday that Hillary Clinton and the campaign have “never” answered whether or not emails about the Clinton Foundation were “personal” or “work-related.”
Appearing on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Heilemann said, “Let’s bring a couple of stories together, which is the story that we learned yesterday that there’s 15,000 of these emails that are now going to be released between now and Election Day.” (RELATED: Bahrain’s Prince Got Audience With Clinton After Donating $32 Million To Her Foundation)
“A fundamental question never answered in the course of a year that we’ve dealt with this email controversy was, among the 30,000 plus emails that Hillary Clinton destroyed because they were personal, as opposed to the ones she turned over that were work-related,” Heilemann said.

“I asked this question of the campaign on multiple occasions over the course of a year and never got an answer, we still don’t have an answer to it. Did she regard foundation-related emails as personal or not? So if it turns out the answer to that question is yes, there could be a lot of email that was destroyed but now may be recovered? Among these 15,000 emails, how many of them are foundation-related if she and her lawyers deem those to be personal as opposed to work related?” (RELATED: 15,000 NEW Clinton Emails Set To Drop Right Before The Election)
