This could be very interesting… and if you are Hillary, painful.
The company that managed Hillary Rodham Clinton’s private e-mail server said it has “no knowledge of the server being wiped,” the strongest indication to date that tens of thousands of e-mails that Clinton has said were deleted could be recovered.
Clinton and her advisers have said for months that she deleted her personal correspondence from her time as secretary of state, creating the impression that 31,000 e-mails were gone forever.
There is a distinction between e-mails being deleted and a server being wiped. If e-mails are deleted or moved from a server, they appear to no longer exist on the device. But experts say, depending on the condition of the server, underlying data can remain on the device and the e-mails can often be restored.
This opens an additional can of worms for Clinton. It means the FBI will get a chance to look at her ‘wedding plans’ and her ‘yoga schedule’ (is it just me or is the idea of Hillary’s jiggling derriere testing the tensile strength of a pair of translucent Lululemon yoga pants disturbing) along with any work related emails she didn’t disclose. It means that Judicial Watch and Citizens United will have additional points of attack for FOIA requests and lawsuits. It means that ‘private’ emails that will probably link US foreign policy to Bill Clinton’s speeches and Huma Abedin’s consulting work will be revealed.
Equally disturbing: the knowledge that several hundred Top Secret and Secret emails have been available for the reading to anyone with access to that server.
