The email controversy that has dogged Hillary Clinton for more than a year is getting new life. Newly released documents reveal she told investigators she couldn't recall briefings on how to handle classified information and preserve government records because she suffered a concussion. The revelations come as her Republican presidential rival Donald Trump pulls even in the polls after trailing for weeks. The fallout from her decision to use an unauthorized private email account while she was Secretary of State has fueled voters' doubts about Clinton's trustworthiness. And Republicans have used reports about Clinton's concussion to raise doubts about the 68-year-old's health. Clinton herself brought up the health scare during her 3-1/2-hour interview with FBI and Justice Department investigators according to a summary of the interview. Some Republicans see the new revelations as confirmation that Clinton should have been prosecuted.
