Hillary Clinton sought to borrow a book that included tips on how to permanently delete emails, according to a report by ABC News.
The last batch of the Democratic presidential candidate’s emails released by the State Department included one from Clinton asking to borrow a book called “Send: Why People Email So Badly and How to Do It Better,” by David Shipley and Will Schwalbe. Chapter Six, titled, “The Email That Can Land You In Jail,” includes a section entitled, “How to Delete Something So It Stays Deleted.”
Since news broke in March of her use of a personal email address on a server kept in her New York home, Clinton has insisted that she’s turned over all of her work-related emails to the State Department and deleted 30,000 other so-called personal emails. On Tuesday, she turned the server over to the Justice Department after refusing to do so since March.
Experts say the server may not hold many revelations.
“Being the fact that this is Hillary Clinton with significant resources and a reputation to uphold, I would say that those who are seeking out additional information on the servers … would have a very difficult time finding something,” said Robert Siciliano, an online-security expert.
Former FBI Assistant Director Ronald Hosko said Clinton wouldn’t be able to shift blame if any sensitive material at all is discovered on her home server.
“Presumably, whatever she did with the server, it was done at her direction. Did she do it deliberately? You have to assume she did. It’s her server. Then you have to ask yourself why,” he said.
The FBI plans to sift through the server for possible security violations during her four-year tenure as secretary of state.
Clinton has been dogged by poll numbers showing that more Americans, by a margin of about 20 percentage points, say she’s not trustworthy rather than trustworthy. A late July CNN/ORC poll found that 58% of all registered voters say it is extremely important that the next president be honest and trustworthy.
“The revelation that Secretary Clinton exclusively used private email for official public business, and the multitude of issues that emanated from her decision, including this most recent one, demonstrates what can happen when Congress and those equally committed to exposing the truth, doggedly pursue facts and follow them,” said Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi.
