Clinton pointed to the $30 caps on Friday, writing on Instagram that they were offered “just in time for Galentine’s Day, and the news that Trump was flushing documents down the White House toilet.”
The 2016 Democratic presidential candidate’s post included an edited throwback photo of her wearing a hat with the message “But her emails” written in pink capitals.
The items are described on a retail site as “unstructured black dad hats” made by unions in the United States.
Clinton came under intense scrutiny and made headlines in 2016 for her use of personal email while she was secretary of state, with the practice becoming a major political issue during her presidential campaign against Trump.
Clinton’s emails were the subject of numerous investigations, including by the FBI, which declined to charge her with violating federal record-keeping requirements or other crimes.

Staffers, according to Haberman, thought Trump was flushing pieces of paper down the toilet.
Trump called the claim “categorically untrue” in a statement, saying it was “invented by a journalist in order to publicize an essentially fictional book.”
In light of the report on Trump’s handling of documents, critics have attacked what they call the inordinate attention given to Clinton’s emails by the media.
In a tweet Thursday, Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill noted the “two-year frenzy” over the former first lady’s emails was “bullshit”.
“Call it sexism, Republican depravity, ratings-hungry media, it’s time we recognized it was bullshit and wrote it in the history books,” Merrill said.
Purchases of Clinton’s “But Her Emails” hat go to her group Onward Together, which she says will work to “protect voting rights, help young progressives run for office, and more.” This isn’t the first time Clinton has released an email-related product: Onward Together is also selling a $20 “But Her Emails” mug.
