Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton claimed that the emails her team deleted were personal. But a new WikiLeaks reveal proved what we all were aware of: that this was a farce and the Clinton camp colluded with the media and government to cover up potentially damaging emails that more than likely contained information about Clinton’s responsibility for the Benghazi terror attacks.
Remember when FBI Director James Comey claimed that he didn’t recommend an indictment against former Secretary of State Clinton after the conclusion of the FBI’s investigation of Clinton’s use of private servers to send and receive classified information? Here’s a big pile of intent.

From the email, which was sent by Nick Merrill on June 24, 2015 and began “Just spoke to State a little more about this. A few updates”:
They do not plan to release anything publicly, so no posting online or anything public-facing, just to the committee. That said, they are considering placing a story with a friendly at AP (Matt Lee or Bradley Klapper), that would lay this out before the majority on the committee has a chance to realize what they have and distort it.
On that last piece, we think it would make sense to work with State and the AP to deploy the below.
Anyone surprised by this?

The email also discusses how Clinton’s camp is going to explain why she didn’t turn over all her emails – specifically emails between her and Sidney Blumentahl. here’s an excerpt from Zero Hedge:
2. What that means specifically is that they are going to turn over all the Blumenthal emails to the Committee that they hav along with some other HRC emails that include a slightly broader set of search terms than the original batch. That of course includes the emails Sid turned over that HRC didn’t, which will make clear to them that she didn’t have them in the first place, deleted them, or didn’t turn them over. It also includes emails that HRC had that Sid didn’t, as Brian noted.
We’ve known for a while that there were emails deleted that referred to the Benghazi terror attacks and likely, to Clinton’s responsibility to the deaths of four Americans. As for the friendlies at the AP, Blumenthal sent emails about intelligence reports prior to Benghazi, according to Zero Hedge.
Thanks to the friendlies at the AP, the liberal media referenced the 15 missing work emails from Clinton not turned over to the Benghazi Select Committee, but as we now now from the emails leaked by WikiLeaks – there were 16.
What happened to the 16th email?
Clinton’s camp admitted that emails between her and Blumenthal were deleted and they attempted to spin it as if it was no big deal, even though Congress subpoenaed her emails and ordered them to be preserved.
It’s insane that Clinton lawyers were allowed to pick through which were personal and which were private – she should have lost that right as soon as she commingled her personal emails with her State Department emails and endangered national security – but that’s what happened.
If there were no nefarious intentions and if there was nothing important in there, why didn’t Clinton turn them all over?
Because the intent was clearly there to destroy information that could have damaged Clinton and, despite Comey’s protestations, he was in on it, the Department of Justice was in on it and so was President Obama and others in his administration.
This is why Donald Trump called for a special prosecutor and why that needs to happen. Whether it would go anywhere remains to be seen.
