US District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan, presiding over a lawsuit relating to Clinton’s emails, expresses puzzlement over the scandal. He notes that Clinton put the State Department in the position of having to ask her to return thousands of government records. He asks in a hearing, “Am I missing something? How in the world could this happen?” (The Washington Post, 3/27/2016) He adds, “It just boggles the mind a little that the State Department allowed this practice to occur in the first place. It is very, very troubling.” (CNN, 2/23/2016) He also comments, “There has been a constant drip, drip, drip of declarations. When does it stop? This case is about the public’s right to know.” (The Washington Post, 2/23/2016)
