Bernie Sanders may think the American people are "sick and tired" of hearing about Hillary Clinton's "damn emails." Maybe he's right. But the American people certainly should care about Clinton's emails. They're scandalous — and potentially very dangerous.

Clinton long maintained that she did nothing wrong, and that none of her emails contained particularly sensitive information.
