The Congressional subpoena for the emails arrived on March 4, 2015. Dump the emails Podesta says on March 2, 2015. Did someone do a Donna Brazile, as in tip off the Clinton campaign that the subpoena was coming?
That’s certainly what it sounds like, doesn’t it?
Then on March 10, 2015, Hillary held her now infamous United Nations press conference, in which she flat out lied about her use of an outlaw system of personal email servers, in flagrant disregard of any concerns about national security.
From The New York Times:
Hillary Rodham Clinton revealed on Tuesday that she had deleted about half her emails from her years as secretary of state, saying she had turned over to the Obama administration all correspondence about government business but had erased records of communications about private matters, like yoga routines, her daughter’s wedding and her mother’s funeral.
In a news conference about her exclusive use of a private email account while secretary, Mrs. Clinton sought to squelch the furor about those communications, already in its second week.
She acknowledged that it would have been wiser to use a government email for official business, but said she had “fully complied with every rule” and was going “above and beyond” what was required of her in asking the State Department to make public much of her email correspondence.
“No one wants their personal emails made public,” she said, “and I think most people understand that and respect that privacy.”
She said she had only convenience in mind in choosing to use just a personal email account.
“I thought it would be easier to carry just one device for my work and for my personal emails instead of two,” she explained. She asked, in effect, that voters trust that she was disclosing more of them than she needed to — and even to credit her with an unusual degree of transparency.
Mrs. Clinton said she turned over some 30,490 emails to the State Department in December, nearly two years after leaving office. But she said she had deleted nearly 32,000 others.
Her confirmation that she and her aides had chosen which emails to make available to the State Department raised new concerns about Mrs. Clinton’s power to decide which records of her tenure as secretary would be available to congressional investigators, to journalists filing Freedom of Information Act requests, and to history.
An October 7 Wikileaks release shows that the Clinton campaign was colluding with Obama’s Department of (In)Justice about when the State Department should release the emails that Hillary hadn’t had destroyed, you know the ones about yoga and wedding plans.
I think it is worth finding out who tipped them off that they had better get busy destroying evidence. All of the democrats on Trey Gowdy’s Benghazi Select Committee, and their staffers, should be deposed immediately.
I’ll say again what I have said for months. This reeking mess is much worse than Watergate. Only an election victory by Donald J. Trump will put an end to this stunning corruption.
