More email controversy


Recommended Posts

 

The latest focus point in Hillary Clinton's long email controversy may be a little-known tool for freeing up computer storage space.

 

Trey Gowdy, a Republican congressman from South Carolina, looked to reignite criticism about Clinton's handling of emails on a private server by saying her team used a software tool called BleachBit to have messages "deleted where even God can't read them."

 

"You don't use BleachBit for yoga emails or for bridesmaids emails," Gowdy said in an interview on Fox News Thursday. "When you are using BleachBit, it is something you really do not want the world to see."

 

Clinton has said about 30,000 deleted emails were personal in nature.

 

However, BleachBit may not be quite as sinister as Gowdy makes it out to be. It's one of many services you can download online to free up space on your computer by removing old unused files and clearing out internet history and cookies.

 

An advanced version of the service also offers an option for "shredding files to prevent recovery."

 

"If you're a business user looking for a truly free system cleaner, one interesting option is open-source, cross-platform BleachBit," PCWorld wrote in a 2013 product review.

 

Jonathan Zdziarski, a computer security expert, characterized BleachBit as a fairly "amateur" tool that doesn't raise any red flags.

 

"It looks like the type of tool someone would run who's conscious of cleaning old crud off their system," Zdziarski said. "Someone trying to cover their tracks would likely pay for and use a much more expensive, specialized data destruction tool."

 

Andrew Ziem, the developer behind BleachBit, wrote in a blog post that the service "has not been served a warrant or subpoena in relation to the investigation."

 

"BleachBit is free of charge to use in any environment whether it is personal, commercial, educational, and government, and the cleaning process is not reversible," Ziem said in the post on BleachBit's website.

 

That said, Ziem also noted that BleachBit's web traffic "spiked" after Gowdy's comments.

 

The Clinton campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

How can anyone trust or vote for her?

How can anyone trust or vote for Trump?

He hires illegals and complains about how they steal jobs.

He complains about China and has neckties made in China.

 

You seem to just hate women.

This is likely to be because you think it is funny to constantly ask to see their tits.

Women resent this and that explains why you aren't getting any, except for the Inflatables.

The Inflatables are not really women, of course.

Easy, because everyone is tired of politicians who make promises they have no intention of keeping.

They're tired of a shitty economy.

They're tired of people like Hillary selling out our country for personal gain.

They're tire of politics as usual, and willing to try ANYTHING else.

What be the problem King? First you piss and moan about hackers getting emails, and when you find out the emails are "possibly" being totally destroyed to prevent hackers, you piss and moan over the destruction. lol What is it King, the netting circle getting to much for you? You don't seem to know when your being played by the Gowdy gang.

Yeah, so they want more, greater amounts (as Trump would say) of the same with a trillion dollar cherry wall sprinkled with nuts to top it all off. You are silly. Even your own party won't vote for Trump, neither will the delegates.

 

In a new CNN poll, nearly half of GOP voters responded that they’d prefer to see their party nominate someone else. A CNN poll released on Tuesday shows that a stunning 48 percent of Republicans polled would prefer that the party dump Trump in favor of another candidate.

 

You know what that means Goofy, Republican voters (48% are walking) are tired of the Trump shitzaganza, and won't try your "anything else." lol

Uh what where have I pissed and moaned?

You just provided a piss moan article dude, seeking a complaint against what the complaint was last week. Hope you are not going blind.

 

I got to ask, would you fuck Palin on that operating table while they worked on her nut shell?

What's the problem? She does NOT have the right to delete, shred or otherwise destroy government emails or any other govt document! Those are public records and she is bound by LAW to retain them and turn ALL of them in when she leaves office. She does not get to determine which emails to destroy. She was told not to delete any emails, and she did anyway.

Why did the 30 Benghazi emails FBI discovered escape destruction?

Everyone is wondering what’s in the 30 previously unknown emails related to Benghazi the FBI managed to discover on Hillary’s server and turned over to the State Department for potential redaction. But the manner by which they escaped destruction may tell us a lot, no matter how much redaction takes place.

The very fact that the emails were recoverable has got Hillary and her team of lawyers in a lot of trouble. Ed Morrissey of Hot Air explains:

All along, Hillary and her team insisted that they had nothing responsive to investigators and those filing FOIA demands, and that the entire Benghazi probe consisted of rehashed questions already answered.

The new admission from State raises even more questions about the e-mail scandal. The claim from Hillary and her team that the lawyers checked all of her e-mail individually to determine whether they related to official business has long since been debunked. However, one would have expected Hillary and her team to specifically look for materials responsive to Congressional investigations in progress, especially on Benghazi and Libya, even if they were segregating other material by keyword search. Given that the State Department repeatedly argued in court that no such records existed until Hillary’s private e-mail system became public knowledge, the judicial branch may hold State and Hillary to those expectations.


Hillary misrepresented to Congress the thoroughness of the search process. Let’s use that word instead of “lied,” because it leaves open the door of scapegoating the lawyers. Bad things often happen to people who work with the Clintons when they are no longer useful.

So how on Earth did those emails escape the highly touted ability of BleachBit to make data inaccessible to God Himself? Presuming for the sake of discussion that BleachBit really works, that leaves two possibilities. Keep in mind that the 30 emails were found in a batch of 14,900 emails the FBI recovered through various methods.


1 The FBI recovered the emails through its thorough search of the records of every recipient of an email from the secret email account.

2 Somehow, an error was made, and the 14,900 emails were not deleted with BleachBit.


If number two is true, that was a highly incompetent effort at sanitizing. Honestly, it seems unlikely. So we are likely facing 30 emails that were sent to computers and accounts the FBI gained access to.

If the emails were sent to official government accounts, they are probably pretty innocuous. Hillary had to have realized that anything sent to those accounts was going to be subject to discovery. The very purpose of her email server was to evade discovery, so she knew that .gov accounts are discoverable.

The reason these emails were deleted from the records she handed over probably is that they included a keyword like Benghazi. Instead of being marked to hand over, they were marked for destruction, even if the contents were comparatively innocuous. Non-incriminatory emails should have been handed over but weren’t because the destruction was too inclusive.

But if some of these emails were sent to confidantes like Sidney Blumenthal and recovered via their failure to BleachBit everything, then Katy bar the door. Assuming they are not completely redacted by the State Department.

Can YOU account for all of your emails? OK now take the number of emails you sent and received over the last year and times it by 1000. You sound like a liberal buddy. Your faith in Big Government makes me sick. Maybe you would like our tax dollars to pay someone to clean your house. Stop wasting our hard earn tax dollars on wild goose chases.

But that is ok, not a problem at all, just following protocol. And yes, yes, she does get to determine which emails to destroy. I thought you knew.
