“Alert the House GOP,” former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton joked on social media after visiting an art exhibit in Venice, Italy, featuring 62,000 pages of her emails.
The exhibit, called “HILLARY: The Clinton Emails,” also included a replica of an Oval Office desk with huge white stacks of the copied emails available for the public to read through, according to media reports.

And that’s exactly what Clinton did. She showed up at the exhibit, Time magazine reported, read through some of her old emails for about an hour, took a few photos of herself then posted a picture and message to social media about it.
“Found my emails at the Venice Biennale. Someone alert the House GOP,” the ex-secretary of state tweeted.

The artist, Kenneth Goldsmith, printed the emails that were already publicly available through WikiLeaks after the 2016 hack of the Democratic National Committee’s internal email accounts.
“Hillary Clinton reading her own emails at my exhibition in Venice, Italy,” Goldsmith, a writing teacher at the University of Pennsylvania, tweeted.

The artist posted reaction from Clinton about his exhibit:
“Mrs Clinton stated, ‘This exhibition is further proof that nothing wrong or controversial can be found on these emails. It makes them accessible to everyone and allows everyone to read them.’ And then, as an aside, she added: ‘They are just so boring.’”
