During a tense exchange with reporters in August, 2015, over whether her personal server had been wiped cleaned, Hillary Clinton infamously responded, flippantly: “What, like with a cloth or something?”
Turns out Hillary and her lawyers used more than a cloth.
According to Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi, Hillary’s legal team used BleachBit, software its developer claims can prevent recovery of deleted files.
Just how effective does Gowdy think BleachBit is?
Yeah, pretty effective:
“She and her lawyers had those emails deleted. And they didn’t just push the delete button; they had them deleted where even God can’t read them.
You don’t use BleachBit for yoga emails or bridesmaids emails. When you’re using BleachBit, it is something you really do not want the world to see.”
Hillary continues to maintain that all deleted emails were personal, telling CNN’s Anderson Cooper: “There’s a lot of smoke and no fire.”
Gowdy responded in typical Gowdy fashion:
“It’s arson. It’s pyromania. It’s not smoke.”
Earlier this month, the FBI delivered to the State Department a disc containing 14,900 emails to and from Hillary it recovered that she failed to return to the government as required.
On Thursday, a federal judge ordered the department to release by Sept. 13 any emails it finds between Hillary and the White House from the week of the 2012 attack in Benghazi.
More smoke, or more arson?
