Hillary: My Emails Are Gone, Gone, Gone!

In another email-related bombshell, Hillary Clinton’s lawyer, David Kendall, has told the House Select Committee on Benghazi that all emails have been deleted from Hillary’s private email server:

An examination of the server that housed the personal email account that Hillary Rodham Clinton exclusively used when she was secretary of state showed that there are no copies of any emails she sent during her time in office, her lawyer told a congressional committee on Friday.

Mrs. Clinton’s lawyer, David Kendall, said in a letter that after her lawyers determined which emails were personal and which were private, a setting was changed to retain only emails sent in the previous 60 days.

“Thus, there are no [email protected] emails from Secretary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state on the server for any review, even if such review were appropriate or legally authorized,” Mr. Kendall said.

Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy was not amused:

The head of the committee, Trey Gowdy, Republican of South Carolina, said in a written statement that it appeared that Mrs. Clinton deleted the emails after Oct. 28, when the State Department first asked her to turn over emails that were government records.

“Not only was the secretary the sole arbiter of what was a public record, she also summarily decided to delete all emails from her server ensuring no one could check behind her analysis in the public interest,” Mr. Gowdy said.

He said that Mrs. Clinton’s “unprecedented email arrangement with herself and her decision nearly two years after she left office to permanently delete all emails” had deprived Americans of a full record of her time in office.

Well, yes. That’s the idea.

What can one say about such brazen corruption? Will the Democrats really hold their noses and nominate Hillary? Do they have any choice? As Steve likes to say, get out the popcorn.
