SERVERGATE: Hillary’s Emails are the Gift that Keeps on Giving

hlryemlsThe question of Hillary Clinton’s insecure emails looks more and more like a growing scandal. At first, there was concern her private emails might include incriminating communications about her handling of the Benghazi terrorist attack. Now, it appears she may have illegally stored classified government emails on an unsafe personal server — left unencrypted for three months — and possibly obstructed justice by refusing to turn them over.

A subpoena was issued for her emails in March, which she claimed she never got. “I am confident that I never sent nor received any information that was classified at the time it was sent and received,” she asserted last month.

Eventually, she turned over about 30,000 emails to the FBI, amounting to almost half the emails on the server. But she refused to turn over the entire server, claiming that the rest of the emails were personal and unrelated to her job as Secretary of State. Finally, however, she agreed to hand over the server and a thumb drive containing copies of the emails. Did she change her mind because she had scrubbed it clean of any incriminating evidence? That’s not idle speculation. This week it was discovered that she ordered a book on how to delete emails and handle subpoenas for them.
