Emails show Clinton staff asked NFL for help spinning her concussion, the State Department blacked out its list of Hillary’s ‘achievements’ and Madame Secretary couldn’t find ‘Homeland’ on her TV

Hillary Clinton needed help finding the Showtime network on her cable box – so she could watch ‘Homeland’ – according to an email the State Department released Monday.Her chief communications guru asked National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell for help spinning the press on the dangers of her December 2012 concussion, according to another message.The State Department completely censored a third, which appeared to consist of a bullet-pointed list of fourClinton ‘accomplishments’ as secretary of state, determining it wasn’t fit for disclosure under the Freedom Of Information Act’s guidelines.

Monday’s batch of released emails consumed more than 7,800 pages, mostly from 2012 and 2013. In all, 328 of the emails were deemed ‘classified,’ including 1 marked ‘secret.’That brings to 999 the total number of now-classified emails that once resided on Hillary’s unsecured home-brew server at her upstate New York home.Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus mocked her on Monday, saying that number suggests she ‘jeopardized our national security and has tried to mislead the American people.”Hillary Clinton’s compromise of so much sensitive information for the sake of skirting government transparency laws is an irreparable breach of the public trust and shows why she cannot be trusted in the White House,’ Priebus said in a statement.But the State Department crowed about making several telephone books’ worth of new documents available online.’This is our largest production to date,’ agency spokeswoman Elizabeth Trudeau said during a press briefing a few hours before the email messages began their steady upload onto the State Department’swebsite.Buried among diplomatic minutiae and hundreds of emails showing Hillary asking her staff to ‘pls print’ news articles, one Sunday afternoon exchange paints her as a senior citizen befuddled by her cable TV box.’Do you know what channel on the TV in DC is the program listing?’ she asked her close communications aide Philippe Reines in an email headed ‘stupid question.”And, specifically, what channel number is Showtime?’Six minutes later, she primed the pump: ‘Because I want to watch “Homeland”.’
