Hillary Clinton claims she turned over all work-related emails and deleted more than 30,000 “personal emails.” She also explained that these were related to her yoga lessons, Chelsea’s wedding etc. This is a lie based upon her own definition of what emails were personal. This is very similar to Bill Clinton claiming he didn’t have sex with Monica Lewinsky because he only received oral sex.
By the way, this lie is already unraveling as the FBI has found some Benghazi-related emails among the deleted emails. But let’s dig in more…
First of all, consider that Hillary Clinton turned over about 30,000 “work-related” emails and deleted about 30,000 personal emails. So, does it make sense that HALF of her emails were personal? Can you imagine any employee – in government or in a corporation – spending half their time on personal emails?
Second, let’s do the math: 30,000 emails in 4 years comes to 7,500 emails per year. Assuming a 50-week year, it’s 150 emails per week. In a 40-hr week, it’s one personal email every 16 minutes! Impossible or unprofessional or both.
Third, these emails were deleted using a software called “BleachBit” to make sure that they can never be retrieved again. (However, as will be discussed in another blog post, the Clinton team was quite sloppy and had the email archives stored in multiple locations, so it looks like some of the deleted emails might be recovered).
Fourth, Hillary deleted these emails AFTER the U.S. Congress issued a subpoena for those emails. Anyone else would be sent to jail for destruction of evidence or tampering with evidence. (Congress issued the subpoena on March 4, 2015. Hillary deleted the emails three weeks later).
So what were those emails? We find the truth when we look into her FBI interview.
Hillary did not go through each and every email to figure out of it was personal. She deleted any email that was not sent to or received from US government officials. She used the “Search” functionality to preserve only those emails that were sent to or received from emails that had “.gov” or “.mil” in the address (source).
These “work-related” emails that she turned over to the FBI were useless in a way because they are already in the government’s SMART system (State Messaging and Archive Retrieval Toolset). If someone with a .gov or a .mil email address communicated with Hillary, the system would have archived it anyways.
So what other emails could be truly work-related but were deleted under the false pretext of “personal emails“? Here are some examples:
** Emails between Hillary Clinton and Huma Abedin. These were deleted since they both used private email accounts on Hillary’s server. Hillary used firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com, while Huma’s address was firstname.lastname@example.org. Huma, as the reader might know, is the ultimate confidante and loyal aide of Hillary Clinton. She is even referred to as the “second daughter” of Hillary Clinton.
Huma has been by Hillary’s side for more than 20 years and has worked as a top official in the State Dept., Clinton Foundation, Hillary’s campaigns etc. The fact that Huma was the only person, other than Hillary, to have an email account in that home server shows her insider status. Sometimes Huma even responded to Hillary’s emails.
** All emails between Hillary/Huma and the Clinton Foundation were also deleted. This is the essence of Pay-For-Play scheme. Donors who gave money to Clinton Foundation got favors from Hillary Clinton’s State Department. A guy named Doug Band was the messenger from Clinton Foundation. He constantly emailed Huma on what the donors needed.
** All emails between Hillary/Huma and advisors, foreign governments, U.S. corporations, donors, puppet masters such as George Soros etc. were also deleted. Basically, if someone used an email address that did not end in .gov or .mil, and communicated with Hillary, they can rest assured that Hillary got rid of those emails.
Finally, it’s obvious to me why Hillary Clinton had two email accounts, as noted before. One was for her regular work as the Secretary of State and the other email was for bribes and crooked schemes. Also, she could have easily created a third account that would have been used 100% for personal emails – yoga lessons and what not.
In summary, Hillary Clinton deleted all the emails – and the only emails – that would have exposed her shenanigans. She just redefined those incriminating emails as “personal.”
