Federal investigators reportedly have recovered work-related and personal emails from Hillary Clinton's time as secretary of state that the Democratic presidential front-runner claimed had been deleted from her personal server.
The recovery of the emails was first reported by Bloomberg News late Tuesday. The initial report, which cited a source familiar with the FBI investigation into Clinton's private email server, was corroborated by The New York Times, which cited two government officials.
It was not immediately clear whether all 30,000 messages Clinton said she had deleted from the server had been recovered, but one official told the Times that it had not been difficult to recover the emails that had been found so far.

2. Recently a hacker came out that he had the supposed lost emails. He with his lawyer sent the emails to the FBI. I didn't follow up to this story so I can't say whether it was true or not but I recall that some MSM sources validated the story

Regardless, the politicians that control the government (on both sides) will agree among themselves that Hillary will be punished enough if she is "allowed" to withdraw from the race.
Her tactic against those in power is that she will stay in the race knowing she will hurt her own party if she continues and probably won't win the presidency if not nomination anyway. That is her only ace in the hole...against her own party. She will agree to withdraw on her own accord! if both sides agree she will never be indited for a major crime.
The Clinton image and legacy will be deeply tarnished, but beyond that they shall continue as if nothing of importance happened.

There are two conclusions to be reached from this announcement. Hillary could not be exonerated unless the FBI claimed that all emails were recovered. This is the requisite to clear her of all charges. Conversely, the federal government elite based upon the polling (Trump, Fiorina, Carson) are terrified that the public has woken up. Exposing a 1st term congressmen from Hooterville for corruption will not suffice. They need to prosecute someone of the highest profile to prove that they are not criminals. In short, the Clintons may be sacrificed in an attempt to convince the sheep that the government is not a criminal enterprise.

Unless she had those drives physically damaged beyond repair, there are computer forensic experts that can reconstruct the data. The only way to ensure your data is truly not recoverable is to physically damage the hard drive platters beyond repair.
