I don’t get this.
The evidence that Hillary Clinton or her aides committed obstruction of justice is very straightforward. Why isn’t the MSM howling about this?
It’s simple. Thousands of Clinton emails were destroyed after they were subpoenaed by the House Benghazi committee. According to the latest document release from the FBI, the technician with stewardship over the emails was consulted by Clintons lawyer’s and then eviscerated emails. And then Clinton’s attorneys got back to the House committee and said, without irony, that there were no emails around that were responsive to their request.
Well no kidding. They’d been Bleachbitted into high-tech smithereens.
Here’s the only difference with Watergate. Hillary, as far as we know, did not have a taping system that would reveal whether she was aware of the coverup. That’s why Nixon was nabbed — because he recorded himself approving an effort to obstruct justice.
Andrew McCarthy has a good deconstruction of the case here at National Review, demonstrating how strange it is that the FBI failed to pursue this angle.
Until the FBI gets serious and investigates Clinton attorneys like Cheryl Mills and the techie at River Platte Technologies who wiped the Clinton server clean — and gets these rats singing against each other and Clinton in pursuit of plea deals — we may never know if Clinton approved the coverup.
But the FBI clearly was not serious. It might get more serious if Trump is elected and Chris Christie is the attorney general.
