Hacker claims to have Hillary Clinton’s emails for sale, reports indicate unlikely

A self-described computer specialist is claiming to have 32,000 of Hillary Clinton's private emails for sale at $500,000 or to the highest bidder, according to a Radar report.

The hacker provided subject lines allegedly from the emails, however many of those same subject lines appeared in screenshots leaked from the breached account of Clinton's confidante and former aide to President Bill Clinton, Sidney Blumenthal, and posted on Zero Hedge earlier this year. 

The “computer specialist” alluded to obtaining the emails through Clinton's sent box, implying that presidential contender or one of her staff forgot to erase it, an anonymous source told Radar.  

The former Secretary of State turned over her private email servers, which were mostly blank, to the FBI last month as part of a voluntary agreement after an intelligence community inspector told a Senate committee classified emails were found on her private server.
