Members of Congress who are demanding Hillary Rodham Clinton’s emails are largely exempt from the threat of such scrutiny themselves. “I don’t want to sound like we’re separating ourselves from other groups, but there is a reason that you protect constituent correspondence, so it’s a little different kettle of fish,” said Sen.

Sen. Jeff Flake said on Saturday that he has seen no evidence that American diplomats who fell victim to mysterious health symptoms while in Havana were deliberately attacked.

“The Cuban Interior Ministry is saying the FBI has told them there is no evidence of a sonic attack, even though that term is being used, attack, there is no evidence of it,” said Flake, a longtime advocate for improving ties with Cuba and a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

“There’s no evidence that somebody purposefully tried to harm somebody. Nobody is saying that these people didn’t experience some event, but there’s no evidence that that was a deliberate attack by somebody, either the Cubans or anybody else.”
