FBI Admits Clinton Used Software Designed To "Prevent Recovery" And "Hide Traces Of" Deleted Emails

Tyler Durden's picture

South Carolina Representative Trey Gowdy appeared on Fox News today and disclosed new details about the Clinton email scandal that seem to indicate intent to destroy evidence.  Per the clip below, Gowdy reveals that Clinton used "BleachBit" to erase the "personal" emails from her private server. 

For those not familiar with the software, BleachBit is intended to help users delete files in a way to "prevent recovery" and "hide traces of files deleted."  Per the BleachBit website:

Beyond simply deleting files, BleachBit includes advanced features such as shredding files to prevent recovery, wiping free disk space to hide traces of files deleted by other applications, and vacuuming Firefox to make it faster.

During his appearance on Fox, Gowdy clearly indicates that Clinton's use of BleachBit undermines her claims that she only deleted innocuous "personal" emails from her private server.   

“If she considered them to be personal, then she and her lawyers had those emails deleted.  They didn’t just push the delete button, they had them deleted where even God can't read them.


"They were using something called BleachBit.  You don't use BleachBit for yoga emails."


"When you're using BleachBit, it is something you really do not want the world to see."

Gowdy also questioned whether Hillary considered "Clinton Foundation" emails to be "personal" and, if not, asked why the FBI's investigation revealed minimal emails about Foundation-related topics.


So Dear Reader, we leave it to you to decide whether - like FBI Director Comey - you see no "intent" to hide or obfuscate any of the deleted emails; or - like Rep. Gowdy - you see the facts as proving Hillary Clinton's intent to ensure no trace was left of these harmless emails about yoga routines or wedding plans.

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
--  Joseph Goebbels

The big lie theory or commonly known as Goebbels’ principle states that if one wrong is reverberated many a times then people will accept that wrong as right. Joseph Goebbels believed that “the most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly – it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over”.

If one tells something repeatedly that is utterly false, for example, the sun rises in the south, and there will be a time when a section of people will think it to be true.

In other words, a big lie (German: Große Lüge) is a propaganda technique. The expression was coined by Adolf Hitler, when he dictated his 1925 book Mein Kampf, about the use of a lie so “colossal” that no one would believe that someone “could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously.”

Hillary is above the law.  Just like Lois Lerner.  And Eric Holder.  The rule of law is fucked.  Want justice?  Buy a gun.

Am I an asshole or did HIllary's joke about wiping her server clean with a cloth come off the website for BleachBit? 


That's like double proof she knew all about the server, the contents, that she didn't just want the emails deleted but her server wiped to avoid detection by forensic means, eh, 

eh uh

For someone who doesn't know how to secure her server, she certainly knows how to securely delete her emails.

Well I guess that "shoots all to hell" Comey's argument that she did not have "intent" to do wrong, and really didn't know what she was doing.

Hey, Comey... BULL FUKIN' SHIT!!!  You lying bastard!

I think it's safe to say that Comey's family would've been Hillaried (86'd, disappeared, goners) if he hadn't given her a pass.

If this were a kiddy porn or spying investigation, use of software like BleachBit is evidence of criminal activity.  The FBI would double down with their efforts to make an arrest.

"Alt-Right Lunacy" is exactly what this planet needs. 

Banksters, Corporate "leaders", and Career Politicians are the problem. Therefore, it is impossible for them to be the solution. 

They will not go quietly, which leaves sheer force as the only solution. 

A violent response is well-justified. 

I'm not sure about your background, but plenty of my ancestors have died fighting needless bankster wars, fighting to protect "all those important things" like: the military industrial complex, corporate profits, political egoes, and so-called "royalty" figures. 


Pitchforks and torches, indeed.

The trick is to slowly move the goalposts until an earnest plea for the rule of law seems like 'Alt-right Lunacy'.

That all sounds  marvelous dude..'pitchforks away'..

O understand the frustration. .specially here on zh, though I have NEVER EVER seen a REAL suggestion..does anyone actually have one?


Long 'pitchfork phases and clever zh comments '.


Seriously,  are there any REAL ideas on how to approach correcting this?

I don't have them, but am open to suggestions. ..I feel like 5 guys with pitchforks may not have the actual desired effect.


But in the meantime,  I'm here with the usual zh clever quips. 

Hit me up if u got suttun.

I was speaking with my child's babysitter today about my interaction with the county sheriff's office.  Today I marched in there and asked for annual stats on the service of 'no-knock warrants'.  Great story, for another time . . .  Anyway, she just comes out and says: 'I think the system is too broke to fix, we've got to start fresh'.  Dayum!  She's got it.

True Temper 4 pitchforks are fine for me. They hurt like hell. Customers who bought this pitchfork also bought shovels. Smart thinking. That is of course to bury the mutilated body! Hey, who wants a rotting corpse of a politician on their lawn?
