allowed???

Clinton turned over about 55,000 emails. she said aides deleted over 30,000 emails!


The Justice Department said in a court filing this week that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was allowed to delete personal emails from her personal server.

The Justice filing was in a lawsuit brought by the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch.

"There is no question that former Secretary Clinton had authority to delete personal emails without agency supervision — she appropriately could have done so even if she were working on a government server," the Justice Department's civil division attorneys wrote.

Clinton, who is leading in national polls as she seeks the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, has been dogged by questions about her use of a private email account for government business.


Say what? no question, but we have no idea what was deleted do we?


Judicial Watch had requested a court order from the judge to ensure Clinton's emails were being preserved, but the Justice Department said there was no need for such an order given that Clinton had the right to delete personal emails and that those messages aren't subject to the public records law.

"Government agencies are not required to take steps to recover deleted material based on unfounded speculation that responsive information had been deleted," the government said in its brief. Justice also said Judicial Watch didn't present any evidence Clinton had mistakenly or intentionally deleted government records instead of personal emails.

The Justice Department brief said, "there is no legal basis in the (Freedom of Information Act) for requesters to obtain employees' personal records and, therefore, there is no legal basis for the court to order the State Department to preserve, or to take steps to preserve, the personal records of the former secretary or any other current or former federal employee," according to the Justice Department brief.


But apparently half or more of her official communications were stored on her private servers, sooooo, in other words, prove that the emails werent private. the deleted ones. right.

was she at bohemian grove or something?
its like shes made of greased teflon.
untouchable this woman.

I kind of expected this as she is part of the club, the "just us" system. I mean seriously, this bitch is in bed with so many unsavoury characters, it just makes your head spin. And everyone is covering everyone else's ass. It's a sad, sick system and all the major player's doors lead to the same hell.

Cheers - Dave

At that level they all are. How many high ranking CEO and Bankers were arrested during the financial collapse versus those that got 50+ million bonuses?

You really didn't expect for the people that created the laws to not be above the laws, did you. Yes its still sizzles when it happens over and over again.

the government said in its brief. Justice also said Judicial Watch didn't present any evidence Clinton had mistakenly or intentionally deleted government records instead of personal emails.

How would you prove that without the emails?

justice once again prevails.

oh wait...no

we'll never know the truth on Benghazi, Arms deals, Hit lists, money slush funds, 'outside' fundings, or sex slave parties...

thats good, this way now we can focus on other countries corruption problems and then maybe go 'free' them.(?)

So you think government should be able to just pilfer through your emails, snail mail, home, car what ever because someone speculates that she hid something? No search and seizure laws? No warrants?

Cause someone thinks you might be up to no good with no probable cause?

Being a public official during terrorist attacks is not probable cause. Blame without evidence is not probable cause.

Having said all that... vote Trump 2016! =)

Or it's further evidence that she was well within her right to delete personal communications from the server before handing it over to the Feds.

Let's not forget that nothing of substance has come from this investigation. No emails have been found that contains information that was classified at the time of transmission, and the emails that were labeled as classified during the investigation have not contained anything earth shattering worth prosecuting.

I'm not a fan of Hillary, but this entire ordeal has been nothing more than sour grapes over Benghazi and they are trying to make anything stick.....but can't find anything that will.

Her personal email server was under subpoena as i understood. And she wiped it clean anyhow. She used her "personal" email to discuss troop movements and other strategically sensitive information.
but, sour grapes, yea. Thats the ticket

Then why haven't any charges been filed against her?

because she probably has been to some pretty wild parties with the honchos over at the justice department.
all she has to say is "remember that one night bob?"

Possibly. Or it could be that she did not actually break any laws.

That's just as plausible, is it not?

She was put on leave and then she voluntarily resigned.

I fail to see how that is rellevant and can you answer the question? Isn't it possible that Clinton may not have broken any laws?
