The State Department released another batch of Hillary Clinton emails Tuesday night, and one email is raising some eyebrows.
In the message, Clinton advises a longtime aide that she would be visiting "Santa" — in July.
"I'm seeing Santa at 8:30 so won't take off until closer to 9:30. Is that ok?" Clinton asked Huma Abedin in the 2009 email.
Since most individuals don't visit Santa Claus in the heat of the summer, the email raises one question: who is the mysterious "Santa" that Clinton was visiting?
Clinton has drawn heavy criticism for using a private email server to conduct official business as secretary of state. Critics have said the use of a private computer system cultivates both questions of security and transparency.
The newly released emails also indicate David Axelrod, who served as senior advisor to President Barack Obama, knew about Clinton’s private email account — despite previously claiming he was unaware of her private server.
Earlier this month, officials said that the State Department was unable to find 15 work-related emails from Clinton’s private server.
