Know all those emails where Hillary Clinton was like “Dear Bill and Chelsea: I JUST DID BENGHAZI,” and “Sure, Meryl Streep, I am all the way down for brunch, but FIRST I HAVE TO DO BENGHAZI,” and “Dear Huma Abedin: When we make lesbian sex upon each other later, let’s do it BENGHAZI-STYLE”? No, you do not know all those emails, because Hillz deleted them, and somehow the Justice Department is fine with all this!

The Justice Department said in a court filing this week that Hillary Rodham Clinton had the authority to delete emails that she did not believe were government records from the personal account that she exclusively used while secretary of state.

The statement was made in connection with a lawsuit brought by the conservative group Judicial Watch. The group is seeking to force the government to search the server that housed Mrs. Clinton’s account for messages related to a video ad the State Department aired in Pakistan. Judicial Watch contends the ad was an apology for the Internet video that the administration initially blamed for inciting the 2012 attacks on the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya.

How dare they? How on earth can Hitlery Clinton, the greatest criminal mastermind to exist since her husband, possibly be trusted to know which emails say “Yo, Bill, we should watch this on Netflix,” and which ones say, “CLASSIFIED GOVERNMENT SECRETS on how I am in the Illuminati with Beyoncé”?

Anyway, so yeah, the DOJ says Hillary is a growned-up lady and probably was able to discern which emails were various vegetables she wanted to pick up at the bodega, and which ones were government-related and should be archived. They even say she could have done this if she was using a government email, instead of

And all of this is happening even though Hillz said she was sorry for whatever terrible crimes she didn’t commit, and even though the New York Times was completely certain she was being criminally investigated so hard and probably would end up in Gitmo before it was all over. (The Times neglected to fully take responsibility for that report, and instead just kind of changed the words of it over a few days, hoping no one would notice. This is because the Times is a bad newspaper, and it should feel bad.)

Here’s a weird thing, though! This DOJ brief, which came out last Wednesday, basically exonerates Hillary from any accusation of wrongdoing, and yet Crooks and Liars reports that none of the bad newspapers out there thought it was newsworthy. In fact, it took the REALLY bad Washington Times to notice it before the supposedly liberal papers even noticed. It’s like the powers that be in the “liberal media” might kinda sorta have it in for Hillary, and really don’t want to let people know how she didn’t, in point of fact, commit a bunch of savage crimes.

So weird. Anyway, we’ll look forward to the next SHOCKING development in this story, in a piece the NYT will probably headline “Benghazi Benghazi Benghazi, Email Email Email, Hitlery Clinton Lesbian Bad.”

    She threatened to Vince Foster every last one of them over there, that’s why they exonerated her.

      You KNOW that will be the wingnut explanation.

  • SuspectedDemocrat

    President Bush never used email, personal or otherwise, for the same reason mob bosses never make phone calls.

    • MsAnthropesMr

      I thought it was cause he couldn’t figure out how to use the computer thingy.

      • Major_Major_Major

        Cheney just gave him an etch-a-sketch and told him it was a lap top, hence no e-mails.

          so, Mitt Romney’s old computer…

        • Avattoir

          Fuhhhhhhkneeeee! Thing is, folks forget how qwik all this has happened. Ipads, AOT, weren’t dah bees’ knees in corporate offices at any time during PoxDubya, and in year 2000 and before, also to some extent after, it wasn’t actually unusual for CEO types – of which GeeDubs certainly took himself as being one – not to rely on PCs except as screens to look at porn, uhm, other stuff others put up on it.

          The GeeDub admin largely left behind a minimal e-footprint because they were of a certain generation, they were more than a bit paranoid and a LOT disdainful, they planned it that way (tho not all that well), and as soon as the alarms went up in Rove’s Politico WH offices about how quickly the little e-suckers had got up into the kamillions, then the magic auto-errrrraser that was the old timey message system they were using had already kicked in, deleting like there was no tomorrow, that materially reduced the number and magnitude of Rove et al’s dump-n-destroy trips.

          And Cheney, recall, had that big “man-sized” safe, remember? The one that caught fire and burned? So accident, much unfortunate, loss to work of academe some 25 years down the pike, lots of sad sorries from Addington and shrugs from the Dickmeister.

          • SadDemInTex

            Having recently visited the Bush “library” at SMU I can concur that there is NO material at all of a written or book nature (except Laura’s contribution). It is just a big propaganda machine to justify his war crimes. (The baseball exhibit was terrific….I think it goes to every presidiential library…go see it).

          • Villago Delenda Est

            The Federal Government, at least the DoD part of it, has had email since the 80’s.

            The deserting coward didn’t want to leave an electronic trail of his crimes.

        That too.

      • mtn_philosoph

        If I was Prez I wouldn’t use email either. No way would I allow myself be so easily hackable. Or subpoenable.

  • Angry_Cop

    i knew there were issues but I am stunned at the reporting coming out from both the NYT and WaPo on Hillary. It’s like a slightly less spittle-flecked version of Seriously. They have it in for her big time. Don’t get it.

    • DahBoner

      Hint: She’s not a Republican.

    • Toomush_Infer

      It’s their version of the “Balanced” response to “Hairpiece Destroys America!”…

    • Bill Slider

      The Post hired a new editor who served in some capacity in the Reagan administration. I had not heard of him, which doesn’t mean much. I think it was during the Nixon administration that the GOP accused the media of wanting to be the fourth branch of government.
      My hunch is that both the NYTimes and WaPo are trying to remain relevant as FOX and others take their readers. They overlook the fact that they have a paywall that FOX and others don’t have. They want too have their cake and eat it too. The two of them have not figured out how to make a ton of money using the free Internet. Sound independent journalism is not on their radar, and soon they will have no radar and ask, what happened?

      • Usedtobeyellerdawg

        I heard you can make like $98.00/hr without even leaving your house. What’s wrong with them?

    • Biel_ze_Bubba

      The NYT seems to care about the wingnut accusations that they’re liberally biased. Bashing Hillary every now and then maintains their “fair and balanced” cred. Or so they think; the wingnuts will sceam about bias regardless . . . heck, they yell at Fucks Gnus whenever the network isn’t sufficiently rabid about some right-wing talking point.

  • Joshua Norton

    If all she did was push “Delete” then the emails are still there for anyone to read who knows how to retrieve them so I’m pretty sure DOJ reviewed them before releasing this info. It ain’t rocket surgery folks..

      It’s not??!!??

    • Querolous

      Maybe if the DOJ asked nice Beijing would send over their copies.

      They could also too get a shitload of Hillary emails by subpeonaing them from people in her address book.

  • Lizzietish81

    I wonder what the wingnuts expect to see in these emails.

    “Dear Fellow Jihadists,

    On behalf of your brother, the President of the United States, I am sorry that we allowed a movie to be filmed insulting the great prophet Mohammad. In reconpence, I offer you our embassy in Benghazi. The security is none existent because we tricked the Republicans into cutting funding for embassy security.

        All right, let’s stop these rumors right now. The NSA does NOT record everyone’s mail or email or personal correspondence. We are NOT an Orwellian super-state that snoops on everyone’s personal life. Good grief.

    Who is a techie here that knows this stuff?

    If Hillz had her own server, with her own domain, the messages that she sent to all of her official contacts and staff still went through the State Department server, right? If that server is backed up, then the emails are there, right? All she did, at most is delete her ‘sent’ copies, but would have no control over their ‘received’ copies.

    • SuspectedDemocrat

      Pretty much, unless she’s emailing foreign leaders like when she told ISIS to do Bengazi and all her love letters to Putin.

      • Villago Delenda Est

        The funny thing is, all those other parties have no emails to provide as examples of Hillary’s evil. Of course, they’re part of the conspiracy as well, you know, so that explains that.

      • Takoma DC

        I believe you mean Angela Merkel. Putin is NOT Hillsy’s style!

    • marxalot

      It kinda depends on what protocol she was using as to whether her emails are still hanging around, but yeah, anything sent to State employees still exists, always provided that they’re following retention policies correctly.

    • DoILookAmused2u ?

      It depends. Because there was no archive system for the unclassified email systems before Feb 2015. So if State Department folks who received those emails saved them, then yes.

      Nobody gave a shit about email on the unclassified systems, though, until Fall 2014, and the archival system … is kind of sort of just barely gettin’ going.

    • SophieCT

      That’s what she’s been telling them all along!

  • John Paine

    The Not Bad papers missed it because horse races sell newspapers and they don’t want it to be over yet. The BAD papers want it because they can now point to the special treatment Obama’s DoJ bestowed on Hillz. Me, I don’t give a rat’s ass about any of em, but Hillz’ excuse that she’s too lazy to carry around another device — besides the battery powered you know what in her overnight bag — squeals volumes about her unfitness to be madame prez.
