Gowdy: Hillary Clinton Deleted Emails ‘Only When Select Committee Asked For Them’


Benghazi Select Committee Chairman Representative Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) went on record saying that Hillary Clinton started deleting her emails “when our committee began to ask the State Department for her emails” in an interview broadcast on Wednesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports.”


Gowdy was asked, “What do you think happened in this case? Do you have any understanding as to whether the server was wiped clean?” He answered, “Well, I just know what her attorney said, which is it wouldn’t matter if we had the server or not. So, the bureau is really good at reconstructing things. There are folks in the past who have thought that they have deleted or wiped things clean, and the forensic computer experts are able to reconstruct it.

I find it interesting, however, that it was 20 months after she separated from the State Department when she decided to wipe the server clean or delete. So, for 20 months those emails were neither too burdensome, nor too cumbersome. It was only when our committee began to ask the State Department for her emails that she said, ‘You know what, it’s been 20 months, gosh, I really need to get rid of this stuff.’ I just don’t think that passes the laugh test, but I haven’t had a chance to ask her about it either.”

Earlier Gowdy had said, “you and I probably both delete emails all the time, but we don’t go through the extra steps of wiping something clean. Deleting it because you just find it too cumbersome, or burdensome to carry it in your inbox is one thing. Taking affirmative steps to actually wipe a server, clean denotes, or can denote, a desire, or a willingness, or an intention to conceal far beyond simply just deleting something.”

  1. The judge was PAID-OFF. Hillary, Bill and their partners in crime for the past 40 years, the Bushes, are ABOVE THE LAW. Despite Bill Clinton’s 30 years of rape, he has never even been arrested. Despite whistleblower testimony of hired assassination for Bill & Hillary by Nichols, they were never arrested. The Bushes are guilty of even WORSE crimes. Still no arrests.

    In the case of the missing emails, “Lying” OBAMA and “Lying” HILLARY’s “Lying” FBI and “Lying” DOJ are the ones retrieving the servers. That info will NEVER see the light of day by all these CRIMINALS! Hillary, Bill and the Bushes have been ABOVE THE LAW for 40 years, and despite all their thefts, assassinations, drug running, gun running, and money laundering (and Bill’s 30 years of Rape), not ONE of them has been arrested. Don’t look for Hillary to be prosecuted for ANYTHING! That warmongering, thieving, murdering beetch should have been in prison 30 years ago.

  2. Why would she want to KEEP Highly sensitive and Top Secret Information in her Electronic Cupboard and drawer for that amount of time. The ONLY Reason must be that she was SELLING this Information to the Best Paying Buyers otherwise she would never have let herself open for serious Prison for ESPIONAGE for just keeping it for fun. Something serious suspicious about her actions and the Amount of MONEY she has received in that time, especially Bill Clinton getting Millions for so called Talks and Lectures. I Would suggest that Money was really for Secrets being sold to some or other Enemy, maybe IRAN and DAESH/IS by Hillary Clinton from her “”SERVER””.
