Lamenting the "drip, drip, drip" of the private email server heard 'round the world, Hillary Clinton said Sunday that the current scandal roiling Clintonland isn't the first—and probably won't be the last. "I have been involved from the receiving side in a lot of these accusations," Clinton said, per Reuters. "In fact as you might remember during the '90s there were a bunch of them. All of them turned out to be not true." Acknowledging that "there is only so much I can control," she told Meet the Press that she also has no idea what new accusations might be coming down the pike. "I can't predict to you what the Republicans will come up with, what sort of charges and claims they might make."

Rather, she says, "what I have tried to do in explaining this is provide more transparency and more information than anybody I'm aware of who has ever served in government." At one point, she dismissed claims of being less than transparent "ridiculous." Politico notes Clinton's apparent exasperation with the issue, at one point asking interviewer Chuck Todd if his next question would involve "another conspiracy theory."
