Even more details about Hillary Clinton's sordid email scheme emerged this week, as her own spokesperson admitted that she failed to turn over an email message that could have had potentially damning consequences for her political career.

Brian Fallon, a spokesman for the Clinton campaign told the Associated Press, "Secretary Clinton had some emails with aide Huma Abedin that Huma did not have, and Huma had some emails with Secretary Clinton that Secretary Clinton did not have."

John Kirby, a State Department spokesman, clarified that the "exchange was not part of the approximately 55,000 pages provided to the State Department by former Secretary Clinton," but it was "included within the set of documents Ms. Abedin provided the department in response to our March 2015 request."

So what was Clinton potentially trying to hide?

One of the missing emails was a November 2010 exchange with top aide Abedin, in which Clinton revealed her fear of personal emails becoming available.

It was suggested to Clinton that she use a state.gov email account after emails from Clinton's BlackBerry were blocked by the State Department's spam filter.

"Let's get separate address or device but I don't want any risk of the personal being accessible," Clinton wrote in response to Abedin's suggestion. Clinton never wound up using that government email, instead using her private server until the end of her tenure as secretary of state.

The State Department had previously exposed the email chain during the Inspector General's investigation into Clinton's email scandal.

But the exchange was never turned over to the State Department, raising suspicions that Clinton purposely tried to hide it. Her camp has denied any wrongdoing.

Story developing.
