From now on, when asked about how I feel about this Presidential election cycle so far, I’m going to answer with just this:
As we noted yesterday, the FBI is fairly confident that it can recover all of the deleted material from Clinton’s email server, since much of it was migrated to other servers and the server itself wasn’t physically destroyed. This will prove problematic for Clinton, since it won’t just show what she deleted, but when she wiped the server, and, perhaps, who else was trying to access the server outside of the Clinton family. It’s possible that the Chinese branch of the Clinton family is much larger than they previously knew.
In true Clinton fashion, she faced the press yesterday – clad in “prison jumpsuit orange,” no less – and played as dumb as possible. What server? What wipe? “What is the meaning of classified material”? Do you mean wiped like with a cloth?
She “‘did not send classified material and [she] did not receive any material that was marked or designated classified.” That’s such a heavily parsed statement, I’m having difficulty making sense of it. And I went to law school where we craft this stuff. Just because it isn’t outwardly marked or designated as classified doesn’t mean it’s not “top secret,” nor does it mean Clinton wouldn’t be aware of it’s exclusive nature. There are at least 300 separate emails the FBI has flagged for possible problems. It’s entirely possible that not a single one of those emails fits the narrow definition of communications Clinton “didn’t send or receive.”
But, of course, this is the Clinton way. Guilty, but not until proven guilty, which may never happen unless the Obama Administration is really not interested in handing the reins off to Hillary and Bill. I’m not holding my breath at the thought of seeing Clinton in any orange but this orange. But it’s still kind of fun to watch this train wreck as it happens.
