Political Zombies: Clinton Emails
Credit: Media Matters
November 15, 2016


Pity, for a moment, poor Judicial Watch. It has made its fame and fortune off the Clinton emails the last two years. Now that conservatives control Congress and the White House, what's a poor conservative head hunting organization to do?

Well, evidently race home to Mama, because Judicial Watch is continuing its Clinton email witch hunt. This, even though there's no profit or advantage to them doing so, other than a desperate clinging to an activity that gave it relevancy.

(And there's also the fact that turning its FOIA obsession on the Trump administration won't be generating a whole lot of income in the future, either.)

Judicial Watch isn't the only entity that has its fingers frozen in a rigid grasp on the same tedious pursuit. According to The Hill five House Committees are continuing their investigation of the emails. Probably for the same reason—desperately attempting to hold on to some relevancy in a world none of them predicted: where Trump would win the Presidency.

We are witnessing the death throes for the Clinton email investigations, to the chagrin of those who would use them for their own purposes.

The only bright spot in this election will be watching them sink into irrelevance.
