Don't get too excited too quickly

My first thought was YES!  But lets don't get too excited too quickly by this news. 
As pressure builds on Hillary Clinton to explain her official use of personal email while serving as secretary of state, she faced new complications Tuesday. It was disclosed her top aides are being drawn into a burgeoning federal inquiry and that two emails on her private account have been classified as “Top Secret.”

The inspector general for the Intelligence Community notified senior members of Congress that two of four classified emails discovered on the server Clinton maintained at her New York home contained material deemed to be in one of the highest security classifications - more sensitive than previously known.
 This is a federal probe.  The underlying motivation may be to clear Hillary Clinton in a suspiciously timely manner, adding fuel to her presidential run.

Another possible outcome is for Hillary to downplay the outcome. One or two classified emails out of literally thousands was just an oversight. The media will eat that up, and it suddenly won't matter that she was operating outside of legal parameters to begin with. All that will matter is that it was minor and this is clearly a witch hunt by the vast right wing conspiracy.

I'm hopeful that Hillary gets her comeuppance. I'm hopeful that there really is animus between Hillary and Obama. But I'm no Pollyanna. A little skepticism will serve us well with this good news, lest we grow dependent on something to derail Hillary Clinton having to come out of this. It may be a decoy for conservatives.
