FBI Investigation Unearths Hillary Clinton's Deleted Emails And Reveals Staffer Shared Classified Information On Her Behalf


Hillary Clinton

The FBI’s investigation into presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has unearthed her deleted emails from her time as U.S. Secretary of State. Clinton's tech specialists assured her the emails had been permanently deleted and even used the term "wiped." However, as stated in the column weeks before the FBI retrieved the emails, it is possible to recover deleted data from hard drives (Hillary Clinton Under Investigation By The FBI As Her Deleted Emails Are Being Retrieved From Her Personal Server). 

The only thing  you can do to truly delete data is destroy the drive (and in a manner that it can't be pieced back together with fragments of data recovered). Some "thermonuke" drives which is dangerous, as it involves placing the drive in a corrosive chemical solution that could become unstable and incendiary. However, Clinton would have been in trouble if she had destroyed the server. Another less drastic method that sometimes works is to overwrite the data you wish to delete. However, with an email, that's a little tricky. 

Baby to Hillary Clinton: put me down, I'm not voting for you!
A member of Clinton's staff shared classified information via email with the Clinton Foundation. Clinton aide Cheryl Mills sent classified data on behalf of Hillary to the Clinton Foundation. Clinton's emails were going back and forth through cyberspace unencrypted, putting national secrets at risk. As stated in the column previously, a hacker is offering a large number of Clinton's emails from her time as Secretary of State, for $500,000. The communist block has also accessed Clinton's emails.

Some online continue to paint Clinton as having committed treason. Once again, as much as I am not a fan of Clinton, due to her involvement with now incarcerated private investigator, Anthony Pellicano, there is no evidence she or her husband betrayed America by selling national secrets to the country's enemies, as some are trying to imply. Don't accuse someone of treason who did not actually commit that crime. It is a very serious allegation to make and in this case against a couple who has done a lot for America.
