Hillary Clinton, a prominent political rival of Donald Trump, took to social media on Friday to taunt the former US president following his federal indictment for alleged mishandling of classified government documents at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.

Shortly after Trump announced the impending federal indictment, Clinton shared a link to an online store selling hats with the phrase “But Her Emails” – a mocking reference to her email controversy.

In 2015, Clinton was investigated for allegedly possessing classified information on a private email server. While the FBI and Justice Department chose not to pursue charges, the investigation became a significant talking point during the contentious 2016 presidential campaigns, benefiting Trump politically.

During his campaign, Trump often encouraged his supporters to chant “Lock her up!” about Clinton’s alleged wrongdoings.

Clinton addressed her more than 31 million Twitter followers, stating, “Bringing this back in light of recent news.” She also promoted the “But Her Emails” merchandise last year, following a New York Times report alleging that Trump had destroyed documents in a White House restroom.

A 2018 Department of Justice report on the investigation into Clinton’s private email server revealed the presence of “81 email chains containing approximately 193 individual emails” classified from confidential to top secret.

In a 2016 report, the FBI explained the decision not to charge Clinton, stating that her actions were not “clearly intentional” and that she displayed no disloyalty to the US. The FBI also noted that Clinton, who cooperated with the investigation, made no efforts to obstruct justice.

In the recently unveiled 37-count indictment against Trump, he is accused of storing classified information in unsecured locations within his Florida home, including a ballroom and a shower. Additionally, he faces allegations of lying to investigators. The documents reportedly involve government secrets related to the US nuclear program and military plans.

Trump, currently the Republican frontrunner for the party’s 2024 presidential nomination, vehemently denies wrongdoing. However, legal experts suggest that he may face significant legal consequences if the extensive charges outlined in the indictment can be substantiated. Trump is scheduled to appear in court in Miami, Florida, just before his 77th birthday on Tuesday.
