Though she’s still keeping her distance from the media, Hillary Clinton is making herself very available to rich supporters who pay big money to rub elbows and break bread with the Democrats’ top 2016 aspirant. Wednesday night, as The Daily Mail reports, Clinton hobnobbed with high-living Texans who filled the $11.4 million mansion of a couple of personal injury lawyers who are ready for Hillary.
The $2,700-per-plate political affair in a posh suburban Dallas neighborhood drew not only Democrat donors to the home of the Texas trial lawyers, it also attracted a number of Republican activists who stood in the street with signs that read such things as, “I did not have textual relations w/ that server.” The reference, of course, was to the Emailgate scandal that continues to grow around Mrs. Clinton and her controversial use of a private, personal server for official government communications when she was secretary of state.
Highlighting the email scandal that plagues the presidential contender, The Texas GOP came to the party — or at least to the vicinity of the glitzy gathering — with a special “gift” for Mrs. Clinton. Aaron Whitehead, the communications director for the Republican Party of Texas, stood next to “a six-foot-tall, rack-mounted computer server wrapped with a broad red ribbon.”
The GOP spokesman told Daily Mail Online that the server represented Clinton’s decision to delete more than 32,000 of her own emails from a private server she used exclusively while she was America’s top diplomat.
The actual Clinton server and its secretive contents could soon become even bigger news for the presumed frontrunner for the Democrat 2016 nomination. The Daily Caller recently reported that a couple of whistleblowers from the State Department have stepped forward with information that could “blow the lid” off the scandal:
The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform recently heard new information that could blow the lid off of the Hillary Clinton private email server scandal and shed new light on a consulting job Huma Abedin held while working as Clinton’s aide at the State Department.
Utah Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz heads that House committee looking into the role that Clinton aide Abedin might have played in Emailgate, as well as her possible conflict of interest in dealing with a private company that may have had business dealings with Clinton’s State Department.

As for the Republicans’ “gift” to Hillary on her Dallas campaign swing, there’s no indication that she actually accepted it.
