Dem Gov in Swing State Worries Email Server Could Be ‘Death Knell’ For Clinton

The Democratic governor of Colorado suggested Thursday that if Hillary Clinton broke the law with the use of a private email server, it “would be the death knell” for her campaign.

Speaking at a Denver forum, Gov. John Hickenlooper said Clinton had the background needed to president that her Republican rivals didn’t, according to The Denver Post.

“But,” he said, “I don’t know where this whole thing is going to go in terms of her … [e-mail] server and whether there is something in there that is really going to turn out to have broken the law — which I think would be the death knell.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.

Sincerely,
TPM Staff
