On Monday, the US State Department released the latest and largest batch of Hillary Clinton’s emails from her time as secretary of state. The emails she sent and received are being released on a monthly basis and these 7,000 pages continue to shed light on some behind-the-scenes activity from her time as the nation’s top diplomat. Her emails range from the trivial—like when she asks subordinates about the schedule of The Good Wife—to weighty matters of diplomacy, including more than 100 heavily redacted emails that may not have been classified at the time Clinton and her staff were sending them back and forth, but were then classified in the review before they were released. Longtime Clinton confidante, author, and political operative Sidney Blumenthal, appears throughout this batch. In one email, he calls Speaker of the House John Boehner “louche,” “alcoholic,” and “lazy.”

Thank you!

We didn't know what to expect when we told you we needed to raise $400,000 before our fiscal year closed on June 30, and we're thrilled to report that our incredible community of readers contributed some $415,000 to help us keep charging as hard as we can during this crazy year.

You just sent an incredible message: that quality journalism doesn't have to answer to advertisers, billionaires, or hedge funds; that newsrooms can eke out an existence thanks primarily to the generosity of its readers. That's so powerful. Especially during what's been called a "media extinction event" when those looking to make a profit from the news pull back, the Mother Jones community steps in.

The months and years ahead won't be easy. Far from it. But there's no one we'd rather face the big challenges with than you, our committed and passionate readers, and our team of fearless reporters who show up every day.
