Hillary Clinton is no stranger to government procedures. She has spent her adult life in government. She has lived in the White House. When she lived there she took an active part in governmental activities. She was a Senator and Secretary of State. She knew what was expected of her.
She made a conscious choice to hold those rules, that she was expected to abide by, in disdain. Those rules apply to lesser lights. She was at a level superior to mere mortals. Or so she thought. But isn't that the Clinton way? Always leave wiggle room. Force people to parse every word in every sentence. And lie as needed.
Toss anyone under the bus, friend or foe or both, but cover the Clintonian butt at all cost. It never ceases to amaze how many people stay loyal to the Clintons. Back in the day, we would say that people like that were hornswoggled. I have no idea what that means, but that is what we would say.
Hillary said that nothing she sent or received was classified at the time. (italics, mine) That doesn't matter. She knows what should be classified. The fact that it wasn't marked classified or that the markings had been removed does not exonerate her from responsibility.
Just the fact that she was using a personal non-governmental server makes her culpable. If she were anyone else, the FBI would have served warrants months ago, in the middle of the night and torn her life to pieces. So she publicly gets undeserved special treatment. What ever happened to "equal treatment under the law".
So, rather than the FBI walk in and take her server, as they should have, she turned it over to them. Surprise, surprise, it was professionally wiped clean. If those that did this deed, used military grade software, nothing will ever be recovered. Having been done by pros, it will be more than a simple reformat. It will have been reformatted. Every bit will have been written to and reformatted again. Possibly at least twice. Good bye all stored data.
This is just another example of Clintonian malfeasance. We cannot afford to allow someone like this an opportunity to be President of the United States.
