Have you ever seen one of those movies where somebody’s about to be captured or killed, and they just have to stop the enemy from getting hold of the top secret plans/new jet fighter/ark of the covenant/extraterrestrial rocket pack/Marcia Brady’s diary?
What always happens in those situations? Somebody hits the self-destruct button, which is an accoutrement present in most modern-day houses, cars and computer systems. I long ago lost count of how many times they used the thing on Star Trek.
Well, that’s basically what happened to Hillary Clinton’s email server.
After the revelation that during her time as secretary of state, Clinton kept all her emails on a private server and nobody noticed she was violating federal law, there have been lots of questions.
Clinton’s answers during her possibly presidential-ambitions-sinking press conference on the matter can be summed up as “I gave you some stuff, screw you if you want the rest.”
And just to make sure things happen in Hillary’s world the way Hillary wants them and no other, she’s ordered some 30,000 “personal” emails deleted.
It should be clear that Hillary has better things to do than to sort through 30,000 pages of kitten photos and requests from deceased Nigerian relatives to please give Mr. Ungungwe Mbutu, totally real banker, your account number.
So how exactly did Team Hillary decide which 30,000 emails were personal? By using the sanctified, lawyer-approved list of code words, of course.
According to Time, anything that had those keywords in it was sent to the State Department. Anything that didn’t went off to computer Nirvana as the sirens blared, the strobes flashed, and the drives were wiped clean.
I want Team Hillary to come over to my house for spring cleaning.
Computer security experts say there’s nothing to fear; most files can be recovered, to which I reply they don’t know Hillary.
That hard drive is never seeing the light of day. If it comes down to a matter of search warrants, the server will be discovered having mysteriously fallen into the incinerator of Hillary’s mansion.
The server’s murder will be coincidentally attended by the disappearance/dropping in acid of Clinton’s Blackberry, which like the server was not issued or controlled by the State Department.
Considering there is the now-famous picture of Hillary using said Blackberry while jetting to Libya, yet there are no emails from that day, it has caused some consternation on Capitol Hill.
Rep. Trey Gowdy, in particular, called Clinton on her use of non-government devices and lack of recordkeeping. “There are gaps of months and months and months,” Gowdy said. “… It’s strange credibility to believe that if you’re on your way to Libya to discuss Libyan policy that there’s not a single document that has been turned over to Congress. So, there are huge gaps. And with respect to the president, it’s not up to Secretary Clinton to decide what is a public record and what’s not.”
Except that in the corrupt Obama Administration, it apparently is.
