Hillary Clinton Spokesman Makes Unbelievable Claim About Email Scandal

A spokesman for Hillary Clinton told CNN he did not know what it means for a computer server to be “wiped.” Brian Fallon, Clinton’s press secretary, spoke with CNN’s Brianna Keilar about the news that a former IT staffer who worked on Clinton’s private email server is pleading the Fifth Amendment in front of a congresional committee investigating the Benghazi terrorist attack. Keilar pressed Fallon about why the former secretary of state deleted personal emails from her server, and the two had an exchange about the propriety of deleting those emails. “Why didn’t she keep them on the server?” Keilar asked. “I don’t know what the relevance, the pertinence of that would have been,” Fallon replied. “She did keep a copy, an electronic copy in the possession of her lawyer.” Fallon added that the State Department initially provided the so-called relevant emails in paper copy and then later Clinton lawyer David Kendall delivered them to the Justice Department in digital form. “Just to be clear, Brian, this is an electronic copy that I imagine is a PDF form that David Kendall retained or is this the actual e-mail with the metadata on it?” Keilar pressed. Fallon said the Justice Department also has possession of the Clinton server. “I don’t know what the FBI is going to do with it but they very well may seek to perform any kind of operation on it,” Fallon said. Keilar interrupted to clarify. “The wiped server?” she said. “The wiped server, right, Brian?” “I don’t know what ‘wiped’ means,” Fallon responded. “The e-mails were deleted.”
