Another day, another moment Hillary Clinton is in the news for her email scandal.
Hillary Clinton’s emails weren’t just deleted, but were completely destroyed. According to Trey Gowdy, House Select Committee on Benghazi Chairman, Hillary Clinton’s emails were destroyed so much so that, “even God can’t read them”.
According to Gowdy, Clinton’s lawyers used a special tool that permanently destroys emails. BleachBit, a computer software tool, can “prevent recovery of files,” and is the software Gowdy asserts that Clinton’s lawyers used to wipe any and all email evidence that was stored on Clinton’s personal server. Gowdy claims that this action is further evidence that Clinton did indeed have information to hide on her private server during her tenure as Secretary of State.
While Clinton continues to promote the idea that all emails stored on her personal server were “personal in nature,” the act of her lawyers using BleachBit raises alarm to the validity of her statements.
“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,” Gowdy said Thursday morning during an interview on Fox News’ America’s Newsroom. “They were using something called BleachBit. You don’t use BleachBit for yoga emails or bridemaids emails. When you’re using BleachBit, it is something you really do not want the world to see.”
While no implicating evidence can be drawn from Hillary Clinton using the BleachBit software to scrub her server, it certainly raises eyebrows as to the testimony she presented to the FBI and to Congress with regards to her personal server.
In yet another chapter in the saga of the Clinton email scandal, the use of “BleachBit” is sure to add fuel to the ever increasing fire.
