RUSH: Here we have Hillary Clinton, a four-year de facto felon, with this private email server and who knows what she has been selling to all of their donors to the State Department via the Clinton Foundation. She’s been selling access to the State Department. She’s no question been selling access in advance of her becoming president, and we’re talking about hundreds of millions of dollars of access. We’re talking 30,000 emails that we now learn were not just deleted; they were hit with an app called BleachBit. You know what BleachBit is? You never heard of BleachBit? You know how when you delete something off a computer hard drive, it doesn’t really delete it. It just destroys the directory to it so it can’t be accessed, but the data — let’s say there’s 30,000 emails, she deletes 30,000 email addresses, okay? They’re still on the server, but the directory, computer lingo for the pathway to them is what’s destroyed.
And when the directory is destroyed, then they can be overwritten when that space is needed. So, if she has, just to make up some numbers, if those 30,000 emails are on a one-gigabyte hard drive, those emails wouldn’t be destroyed until she starts saving other data that needs the space where those emails are. If you really want to delete the data, you have to get a program like BleachBit, which scrubs the hard drive and gets rid of some of, but not all of, just enough of the data to make whatever you can salvage seem like hieroglyphics.
Well, they used BleachBit. Now, why would you go to that — I mean, this was not just deleting. This was not just saying, “Ah, those are yoga and wedding-related emails, and that’s not relevant to what you want. I’ve gone through all 60,000, and there’s about 30,000 that would be useful to you.” If the other emails that she didn’t submit were just yoga and wedding planning stuff and wedding reception stuff, then it wouldn’t be any big deal if someday people stumbled across it. But apparently it would, because they used BleachBit and who knows what other techniques to really scrub that server.
Now, you’ve heard there are another 14,900, maybe 15,000 emails. How’d they get ’em? They got ’em from the people she sent them to. And we have learned that, in those 15,000 emails, that’s part of the 30,000 she claimed that were not relevant and that she destroyed, didn’t turn over. Well, it turns out that half of them do indeed have relevant data to what the FBI and other investigators wanted. So don’t tell me that there isn’t quasi-felon behavior going on here. There most definitely is, and not for the first time with this woman or her husband.
