If Hillary had ‘No Intent,’ Then Why Did She Use This Program?

In early July, FBI director James Comey made one thing perfectly clear. Hillary Clinton is above the law and anyone who dared do what she did, using a personal, unsecured server to transmit top secret information then deleting emails to cover-up her tracks, would probably go to jail. In excusing Hillary’s actions, Comey inserted “intent” into his decision stating that the actions of Hillary and her attorneys was not intentionally but rather just careless.

During an interview with FOX News on Thursday, however, Rep. Trey Gowdy revealed some information that blows Comey’s rationalization that Hillary had no ill intent with her use of a private, unsecured email server to transmit top secret and highly classified material and there was nothing nefarious about her deleting tens of thousands of emails, out of the water.

Gowdy shared that in deleting the emails, Hillary and her team of lawyers used a software program which specifically prevents recovery of deleted files and hides all traces of those files.

The software program is called BleachBit and was used by Team Hillary to remove tens of thousands of emails from her private, unsecured server which was housed in someone’s bathroom. The review of the emails was supervised by Hillary’s longtime aide and former state department official, Heather Samuelson. Once that process was complete and the emails were turned over to the State Department, Clinton’s former chief of state, Cheryl Mills, and her attorney David Kendall oversaw the BleachBit removal process.

Gowdy weighed in on the use of BleachBit to delete these files suggesting that the use of such a program in and of itself suggests egregious intent.

“If she considered them to be personal, then she and her lawyers had those emails deleted,” Gowdy said. “They didn’t just push the delete button, they had them deleted so even God couldn’t read them.”

It was just a few days over one ago that Hillary feigned ignorance when asked if she wiped her server with her infamous, stupidly arrogant reply, “Do you mean with a cloth?” Hillary knew exactly what the reporter meant by wiped the server and the description of BeachBit proves it.

The BleachBit website explains how their process works.

“Beyond simply deleting files, BleachBit includes advanced features such as shredding files to prevent recovery, wiping free disk space to hide traces of files deleted by other applications, and vacuuming Firefox to make it faster.”

It’s incredible, given the constant corruption surrounding Hillary Clinton, that she had the audacity to run for president in the first place. Perhaps she thought doing so would shield her from potential jail time.
