Snowballing Scandal: Rep. Jason Chaffetz Seeks Obstruction of Justice Review in Clinton Email Case

Has there ever been a nominee for the presidency that operated their campaign under a bigger cloud of suspicion and scandal than Hillary Clinton?

If there has been, I can’t recall who it was. For now, however, we’ve got Hillary Clinton and a Democrat party that are so morally bankrupt that they have no qualms with helping her get to where she is, and the damage that she will likely inflict on our nation is of no concern. It’s about winning and keeping control in the hands of Democrats. Period.


I am grateful for those Republican representatives who are determined to keep the pressure on.

Rep. Jason Chaffetz, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, asked the U.S. District Attorney for the District of Columbia on Tuesday to look into whether Hillary Clinton and her aides obstructed justice by destroying federal records that had been requested by the government.

In his letter to the DA’s office, Chaffetz cited findings from the FBI’s year-long probe that suggested aides to the Democratic nominee scrambled to wipe the memories of any device that contained Clinton’s emails after the House Select Committee on Benghazi issued a preservation order for those records.

Then, of course, there was the use of BleachBit, as pointed out by Rep. Trey Gowdy.

BleachBit is a program used to utterly obliterate any trace of emails or documents. It’s what you use when something is so damning and incendiary, that you just can’t risk it ever being uncovered.

Clinton has insisted that those emails she deleted were about yoga and her daughter’s wedding plans. Unless there were photos of Clinton doing naked yoga, I’m not sure why those would warrant the BleachBit treatment.

Besides the BleachBit, Clinton and her staff went as far as to use hammers to destroy devices that were used to store emails and documents.

Chaffetz sent a second letter to Platte River Networks, the technology firm tapped to manage Clinton’s email server, asking about the company’s involvement in the effort to conceal emails.

The FBI’s notes revealed that at least one Platte River Networks employee scrubbed emails from Clinton’s server despite knowing that a congressional request for the documents had been issued.


Clinton apologists will argue that there’s nothing there, but commonsense and just rational review of her behavior surrounding the requests for her emails point to something far more sinister than she’s letting on.

Such active dodging and ducking does not come as a matter of sheer routine, and if Clinton wants to insist that for her, it does, then we have to consider that she is a deeply troubled woman, tortured by paranoia and obsessive tendencies.
