FBI Crushes Republicans Lies By Finding No Evidence of Intentional Clinton Email Deletions

Last updated on July 17th, 2023 at 07:09 pm

FBI Director James Comey made a point in his statement to kill another Republican conspiracy about Secretary Hillary Clinton. Comey said they found no evidence “that any of the additional work-related e-mails were intentionally deleted in an effort to conceal them.”

“I should add here that we found no evidence that any of the additional work-related e-mails were intentionally deleted in an effort to conceal them.”

Instead of a deliberate effort to hid her emails, the FBI found, “like many e-mail users, Secretary Clinton periodically deleted e-mails or e-mails were purged from the system when devices were changed. Because she was not using a government account—or even a commercial account like Gmail—there was no archiving at all of her e-mails, so it is not surprising that we discovered e-mails that were not on Secretary Clinton’s system in 2014, when she produced the 30,000 e-mails to the State Department.”

So while they found emails that were not turned over, the FBI found no evidence that Secretary Clinton deliberately concealed them.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump has his own email problem, as court records show that he has a history of destroying email evidence in cases where he is being sued.

In 2006, when a judge ordered Donald Trump’s casino operation to hand over several years’ worth of emails, the answer surprised him: The Trump Organization routinely erased emails and had no records from 1996 to 2001. The defendants in a case that Trump brought said this amounted to destruction of evidence, a charge never resolved.

Trump deliberately and routinely destroys emails, so his wishful thinking that he could bring Hillary Clinton down over her emails is nothing more than his confidence that his base never gets out past Breitbart and Fox News.
