Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C.,H Chairman of the House committee investigating Benghazi, levied the charge that former Sec. of State Hillary cleaned “wiped clean” her email server rather than turn them over to the investigatory committee. The chairman stated:
“While it is not clear precisely when Secretary Clinton decided to permanently delete all emails from her server, it appears she made the decision after October 28, 2014, when the Department of State for the first time asked the Secretary to return her public record to the Department.”
Support for Clinton’s candidacy has dropped about 15 percentage points since mid February among Democrats, with as few as 45 percent saying they would support her in the last week, according to a Reuters/Ipsos tracking poll.
“There is no basis to support the proposed third-party review of the server that hosted the email@example.com account,” Kendall wrote. “To avoid prolonging a discussion that would be academic, I have confirmed with the secretary’s IT support that no emails…..for the time period January 21, 2009 through February 1, 2013 reside on the server or on any back-up systems associated with the server.”
