Can you spell DELETE?
Consistent with the lack of transparency that has been plaguing the Obama administration, Hillary Clinton deleted all emails that were housed on her home server.
Of greatest concern, it seems the server was erased following the State Department asking Clinton for her government emails. Clinton used a private server to house both her personal and government emails.
Hillary Clinton wiped “clean” the private server housing emails from her tenure as secretary of state, the chairman of the House committee investigating the 2012 terrorist attacks in Benghazi said Friday.
“While it is not clear precisely when Secretary Clinton decided to permanently delete all emails from her server, it appears she made the decision after October 28, 2014, when the Department of State for the first time asked the Secretary to return her public record to the Department,” Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), chairman of the Select Committee on Benghazi, said in a statement.
Clinton was under a subpoena order from the panel for all documents related to the 2012 attacks on the American compound there. But David Kendall, an attorney for Clinton, said the 900 pages of emails previously provided to the panel cover its request.
Kendall also informed the committee that Clinton’s emails from her time at the State Department have been permanently erased.
Naturally, Clinton claims she had returned all of her State Department emails and those that were erased from the server were private.
If Clinton had nothing to hide she would have turned over her server to a third party for review. The question remains, what was she hiding?
