According to a report from her lawyer, David Kendall, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton wiped her private server and deleted all her emails. So says Trey Gowdy, who heads the team from the House of Representatives investigating the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Kendall informed the House Select Committee that his client, Ms. Clinton, ″unilaterally decided to wipe her server clean and permanently delete all emails from her personal server.″ Gowdy went on to report that they do not know exactly when Hillary did this, but ″it appears she made the decision after Oct. 28, 2014, when the Department of State for the first time asked the secretary to return her public record to the department.″ Gowdy′s committee had given Clinton an extension to a request for a complete, independent, review of her emails, but on Friday, now learns that she has refused.
So Hillary Clinton is now officially worse than Richard Nixon! At least he didn′t erase all of his tape recordings from the Oval Office. Hillary is trying, or may have already, erased her entire history of four years at the Department of State. Not that she did anything constructive during her days as head of the State Department. Her objective in wiping her server clean is obviously one to hide anything destructive that she may have done.
Naturally, we′ve seen this coming all along. Its the Rose Law Firm/Whitewater all over again. Those pesky documents are a trail to political hell. Hillary Clinton has no interest in having a public record as she has a general contempt for the public. An attitude shared by many Liberal Democrats. The Obama administration has been taking the art of defying transparency to a whole new level since winning the White House. Even his latest golf outing in Florida this weekend forced the team of pool reporters traveling with him to spend several hours in a work shed so that they could not follow Obama on the course.
There are many unanswered questions concerning Benghazi. Who, specifically, rejected additional security requests repeatedly made by our staff and ambassador there? Why was there such a large CIA presence? What was Ambassador Stevens doing in Benghazi? Why was our consulate kept open while every other nation and even the Red Cross had pulled out? What was Hillary Clinton doing during the hours of the attack?
Besides Benghazi, Clinton′s emails may also shed light on other matters. Such as donations made to her husband′s charity foundation by parties that she was involved with as Secretary of State. Was there a ′pay-to-play′ scheme underway? All of these issues matter, not only for an honest review of Hillary′s time as Secretary of State, but also due to her possible run for the White House in 2016. Obama′s little lies during his campaign in 2008 have shown that he is capable of big lies once elected. Can America survive another 4, or 8 years of a dishonest president?
So this report of Hillary Clinton deciding to have her server wiped and all emails deleted is of consequence. Not only for getting at the truth of what happened at Benghazi, a promise Clinton, herself, made to the families of the fallen, but on her whole tenure as Secretary of State. Not to mention her fitness for higher office if she chooses to run for the White House.
