Reporter Sharyl Attkisson’s Summary and Chronology of the Clinton Email/Server Affair and FBI Investigation

A Clear, Straightforward Summary

Hillary Clinton’s email/server controversy won’t go away because new revelations are constantly dribbling out.

As the controversy continues, it gets harder to keep the events straight.

Sharyl Attkisson provides a valuable chronology here, along with some no-spin annotation.

Attkisson is a serious, tenacious investigative reporter, and her work is always worth reading.

Here are what Attkisson considers the takeaways.

The FBI could not review all of the Hillary Clinton emails under investigation because:

  • The Clintons’ Apple personal server used for Hillary Clinton work email could not be located for the FBI to examine.
  • An Apple MacBook laptop and thumb drive that contained Hillary Clinton email archives were lost, and the FBI couldn’t examine them.
  • 2 BlackBerry devices provided to FBI didn’t have their SIM or SD data cards.
  • 13 Hillary Clinton personal mobile devices were lost, discarded or destroyed. Therefore, the FBI couldn’t examine them.
  • Various server backups were deleted over time, so the FBI couldn’t examine them.
  • After State Dept. notified Hillary Clinton her records would be sought by House Benghazi Committee, copies of her email on the laptops of her attorneys Cheryl Mills and Heather Samuelson were wiped with BleachBit, and the FBI couldn’t review them.
  • After her emails were subpoenaed, Hillary Clinton’s email archive was also permanently deleted from her then-server “PRN” with BleachBit, and the FBI couldn’t review it.
  • Also after the subpoena, backups of the PRN server were manually deleted.

FBI Report on Hillary Clinton Email

The whole article is valuable.

Comment: Let me stress two words.

♦ After State Dept. notified Hillary Clinton her records would be sought by House Benghazi Committee, copies of her email on the laptops of her attorneys Cheryl Mills and Heather Samuelson were wiped with BleachBit, and the FBI couldn’t review them.
♦ After her emails were subpoenaed, Hillary Clinton’s email archive was also permanently deleted from her then-server “PRN” with BleachBit, and the FBI couldn’t review it.

I’m not a lawyer, but that disappearing act has the look, feel, and smell of obstruction of justice.

I am not making these comments as a partisan. Hillary’s adversary has profound flaws, and I find them at least as troubling as Clinton’s.

In fact, one distressing similarity between the candidates is the suspicion that the rule of law does not encompass either one and would not tightly bind their actions as president.
