Hillary Clinton ‘bleached’ her email server to make sure her emails were not recoverable
Trey Gowdy has elaborated on the lengths the former Secretary of State went to in order to ensure her deleted emails could never be recovered. Here is more:
Thousands of emails were permanently deleted from a private email server for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton using a software called BleachBit, House Oversight Committee member Trey Gowdy told Fox News on Thursday.
BleachBit is a program used to “prevent recovery” of deleted files.
“She and her lawyers had those emails deleted,” said Gowdy, a South Carolina Republican. “And they didn’t just push the delete button; they had them deleted where even God can’t read them.”
Do you think Trey Gowdy is overstating this? If so, here is what BleachBit says about its product:
“Beyond simply deleting files, BleachBit includes advanced features such as shredding files to prevent recovery [and] wiping free disk space to hide traces of files deleted by other applications,” their website reads.
Hillary Clinton assured the American people that the 30,000 emails she deleted were personal emails about yoga instructions and wedding plans but this does not sound like the actions of somebody who was merely deleting emails about the cost of her yoga pants and Chelsea’s wedding dress.
On top of that of course is the fact the FBI was able to recover about half of them (probably from the computers of aides who did not delete the emails) and to date not one of them was about yoga and weddings, what is she hiding?
