Archivists at the Clinton Library blocking access “of hundreds of pages of White House papers on pardons that the former president approved, including clemency for fugitive commodities trader Marc Rich.” The risk with this kind of thing is that, basically, Democratic partisans don’t want to hear about it and don’t care. We know perfectly well that the right-wing dragged all this stuff up as part of a crazy and pernicious scandal net and only talks about it to use their nefarious agenda. Thus maybe it won’t hurt Clinton much in a primary. But in a general election? In a country where her husband never secured a majority? It’ll be damaging.
