Shameless Hillary Clinton refused to apologize for her email server scandal for months, as desperate aides worried she'd never admit fault!

That's the latest revelation from the bombshell Wikileaks email dump, released early this morning.

One email exchange uncovered by Radar reveals how Clinton's staffers feared their boss might never come clean about her role in the scandal, after she skirted the issue in an interview with MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell back in September 2015.

Clinton's campaign chairman John Podesta wrote to her director of communications Jennifer Palmieri and Neera Tanden, the president and CEO of the Center for American Progress that the "press takeaway" from the interview was that she "really didn't apologize to the American people."

Shockingly, he admitted, "I am beginning to think Trump is on to something."

Tanden was ruthless, slamming Clinton: "Everyone wants her to apologize," she blasted. "And she should. Apologies are like her Achilles heel."

She predicted it would take "a few interviews" before she could "get to a full apology."

But Tanden did have one piece of backhanded praise: She sniffed, Clinton "didn't seem like a b***h in the interview."

Indeed, the staffers seemed worried about how their stubborn boss might come across, and what she might say on record about her use of a private email server.

Palmieri wrote, "I actually cried a little bit with relief," when it was over.
