Although the Clinton campaign has protested that Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s e-mail calling for the “dumping” of Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails meant that Podesta wanted them released, Katie Pavlich of Townhall has debunked that argument with a timeline of events.
First the Clinton campaign argument:
Here is Pavlich’s timeline:
On March 2, 2015: The New York Times published a report revealing Hillary Clinton used a private, unsecured server to conduct all of her government business at the State Department.
On March 3, 2015: Former White House counsel and Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta emailed Cheryl Mills urging for emails to be “dumped.”
On March 4, 2015: The Benghazi Select Committee Clinton issued a subpoena to preserve documents on the private server.
On March 25, 2015: Mills discusses strategy with top Clinton aides. As Trey Gowdy reported, “There was a conference call between David Kendall, Cheryl Mills and Platte River and then emails that had been in existence for five years, emails that he’s known about until at least December 2014, he decides to delete…just all on his own. That defies logic why some techie in Colorado would despite a subpoena, despite a preservation order, but after a conference call with David Kendell and Cheryl Mills decide on his own that he is going to destroy public records.”
On March 27-31: Someone used Bleachbit to wipe Clinton’s server clean.
On August 15, 2015, an email sent by either Platte River employee Paul Combetta or Bill Thornton stated, “Starting to think this whole thing is really covering up a lot of shady sh*t.”
The Clinton campaign’s explanation and excuse regarding possible corruption flies in the face of facts, as usual.
