State Department security is a bit more real than Alice in Wonderland.

But then again, with Hillary & Co. you never know for sure.



I think she forgot to read it a 2nd time.



She must forget a lot of things - just last month she says


“I am confident that I never sent or received any information that was classified at the time it was sent and received,"


Come to find out, there were 4 classified emails and two TOP SECRET emails LOL


But I do agree with many on this thread that conservative news outlets are reaching with stories like this - it works though. It hooks in an audience and always sounds worse (or better) than it really is. I originally thought the book itself was about techniques for destroying email evidence, when really the book isn't sketchy and it's just one chapter that discusses deleting email evidence. Furthermore, there's no evidence she even acquired or read any of this book - just that she requested it.

At the very same time though, you cannot rule out the possibility that she DID in fact use information found within that book to try to destroy evidence. There's no proof for or against this scenario - just speculation, yes, but she had the means and a motive (and opportunity)

Quite circumstantial.

Does buying insurance for your car indicate that you plan on driving into someone's car. What about a murder mystery book.

Since both former presidents from the Bush family hammered Iraq, does it mean Jeb continue and make it a family tradition.

Would be nice if her challengers would point out have they will govern better versus digging for mud. We know that won't happen thought.

Here's a link to CNN: Link

That being said, this is a great example of propaganda and taking things out of context for political purposes.


New reports reveal that Hillary Clinton requested a book with tips on how to fully delete emails as well as warnings about the possibility of a subpoena.


She asked to borrow the book. It did not say whether she asked to borrow it to learn how to delete emails, but implied that is the case. The book is about sending effective emails and etiquette, but the loons want you to believe she read it for the chapter on how to delete emails.

Pure propaganda.

ETA: Amazon description of the book:


Send—the classic guide to email for office and home—has become indispensable for readers navigating the impersonal, and at times overwhelming, world of electronic communication. Filled with real-life email success (and horror) stories and a wealth of useful and entertaining examples, Send dissects all the major minefields and pitfalls of email. It provides clear rules for constructing effective emails, for handheld etiquette, for handling the “emotional email,” and for navigating all of today’s hot-button issues. It offers essential strategies to help you both better manage the ever-increasing number of emails you receive and improve the ones you send. Send is now more than ever the essential book about email for businesspeople and professionals everywhere.


Go ahead and believe whatever you need to. Doesn't change her past behavior regarding her server, and the amount of emails shes claimed to have handed over.

Talk about grasping at straws. Suppose she went to the library & checked out a book on recipes with pressure cookers. Would people automatically claim she's a sympathizer for the Boston Marathon bombings too?

Seriously, this is getting ridiculous. There are plenty of legitimate reasons to attack or defend her. Instead, people keep pointing to petty stuff like this? It can't be healthy to obsess over dumb stuff like this. Just let it go.

Actually, it is more like finding out that the Boston Marathon bombers borrowed a book about making pressure cooker bombs.

It's just another one to add to her collection, next to:

What about "How to do Magic and Make Emails 'Disappear' (For Good This Time)"

Was the email date published?

Was it one of the earlier emails (how to write effective email) or one of the last (how to delete email).

I don't think posession of information wether it be on paper or in the mind is wrong in any way shape or form. However, the implementation of that knowledge in a negative manner, in this case deleting emails before, during, or after being investigated, especially if you are a public representative and/or hold political power is damaging to society and should not be taken lightly.


While I completely agree with you and I do see this as probably her just being inquisitive or just trying to become more knowledgable, as file shredding is something everyone should do', I ask you to consider the following considering your statement.

Certain reading material such as the anarchists cookbook are, when in your possession, considered making you liable to commit illegal acts. And liable to prosecution under the terrorism act. Now I remember reading that particular material 15 years ago but have never done anything even remotely illegal.

So should we not assume that this polititon was reading this material due to wanting to cover up potentially illegal acts? That is how the law would treat the average peon.

Just food for thought as I too think this is likely circumstantial propaganda.

No, if you read the info here, it's not even a full book on it. It's just one chapter & there's no proof she even read it.

There's also the completely obvious fact that anyone with a computer would do well to know how to delete information. That's one of the first things anyone should learn with computers, how to secure their data & delete it if necessary. Especially with the epidemic of identity theft & the constant reports of major companies getting hacked for their customers' data.

There are probably tens of millions of people who've read articles or books (or watched videos or asked friends) about "how to delete something so it stays deleted". Hence my example & borderline mocking of the knee jerk reaction to this.

There are a number of companies...one out of Germany that comes to mind...that specialize in retrieving unretrievable data. It is my hope that they put specialists on this that can scour that hard drive for information. I also read about a Denver firm that was handling many 10's of thousands of Hillary's official e-mail. I would expect they have been contacted as well.

Yep...I just found this.

Report: FBI Visits Tech Company That Handled Hillary Clinton’s Email

HERE

Here's what I was looking for...from the article




Platte River Networks could potentially have backup copies of Clinton emails that were deleted


My, my....the plot thickens.

Hillary may not be as smart as she thought she was. Information is almost always backed up in multiple locations.

To Danke,
Yep, it's spin alright, Yuh got it!

Let's see now...the Democrat repost is gonna have to be damned more subtle after that, er, biggy.

Maybe, "He came we saw, and Donald died" to include picture of Hilary with a golf ball throwing machine in her hand.

This whole email thing is blown up out of all proportion.

To say that emails she sent wouldn't be on the record is ridiculous.

Any email that she sent would have been received .... by Government employees ... if she was conducting Government business.

Therefore, the emails would ALREADY be part of the public record from the recipient's end. There is no reason to expect that there would have been any revelations from these emails.

If she wasn't conducting Government business, then her emails don't matter.

Anyone with a basic understanding of how email works should realize this.

In 2007, the Bush Administration deleted 22 MILLION emails from White House servers, and Republican investigators are worried about 50000

Oh a basic understanding of email huh?

What about if she was sending emails to other government employees that weren't using government email addresses?

LOL, now that was funny. You could open a whole new thread on the contents of the Clinton and Bush libraries.

On a more serious note, this woman is well shady and lower than a snakes belly, I hope she doesn't manage to wriggle out of this like she seems to manage with her other dirty dealings. I hate to think how corrupt she would be if she was made president!

For some reason I get the strange feeling this was "thrown" to the conservative media, knowing they'd go nuts over it...all in an attempt for the left to point and say, "Look at how crazy, rabid, and insane these people are getting -- this is a partisan witch hunt!"

And if ATS is any sample -- the reverse propaganda seems to be working. I'll be looking to see if any liberal media outlets start accusing the right of "going to far" and "witch hunting" because of this.


It wouldn't matter if conservatives didn't make mountains out of every molehill. They could easily ignore this & focus on real issues they have against her. No one's forcing them to blow this out of proportion.


What do you mean no one is forcing them to blow this out of proportion? That's how that stupid game is played. With the full consent of The People, might i add.

We sit here all day, every day, week after week, watching the partisan nitpicking and misconstruing.

If they took "the high ground", no one would pay attention to them. The People have a confirmation bias, and a penchant for making that which bleeds, lead.
