On Friday, the FBI released 58 pages of notes to the public, all of them in relation to the now-closed investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server. Those notes show that FBI Director James Comey was actually holding back when he described Clinton’s behavior as “extremely careless.” In reality, she’s either incompetent or cunningly deceptive.
The single most revealing part of the report shows that Hillary’s emails vanished only two weeks after the New York Times broke the news about her private email account last March. That story was published on March 2; a Clinton associate told the FBI he had “an oh shit moment and sometime between March 25-21, 2015 deleted the Clinton archive mailbox from PRN server and used BleachBit to delete the exported .PST files he had created on the server system containing Clinton’s emails.”
That’s about as close to a smoking gun as you can get without actually finding it, right there. That’s intent. That’s a woman who has something to hide.
The other entries are revealing as well, though. Hillary seems to have portrayed herself to the FBI as a clueless rube, blindly feeling her way through the confusing terrain of basic technology.
“Clinton said she received no instructions or direction regarding the preservation or production of records from State during the transition out of her role as secretary of State in 2013,” read the notes from the agency’s interview with her in July. “However, in December of 2012, Clinton suffered a concussion and then around the New Year had a blood clot [in her head]. Based on her doctor’s advice, she could only work at State for a few hours a day and could not recall every briefing she received.”
What a convenient tale! Either the broken State Department failed to give Clinton this standard information, or she was too loopy from her injury to remember it. So, either way, it’s not really her fault.
And either way, she’s not fit to be president.
