Hillary: My deleted emails and Trump’s refusal to release his tax returns are “apples and oranges”

And that’s not the only lie here. The reporter asks her what was on those missing emails. Personal stuff, she chirps! Nope, not according to Jim Comey:

The FBI also discovered several thousand work-related e-mails that were not in the group of 30,000 that were returned by Secretary Clinton to State in 2014. We found those additional e-mails in a variety of ways. Some had been deleted over the years and we found traces of them on devices that supported or were connected to the private e-mail domain. Others we found by reviewing the archived government e-mail accounts of people who had been government employees at the same time as Secretary Clinton, including high-ranking officials at other agencies, people with whom a Secretary of State might naturally correspond…

With respect to the thousands of e-mails we found that were not among those produced to State, agencies have concluded that three of those were classified at the time they were sent or received, one at the Secret level and two at the Confidential level

It is also likely that there are other work-related e-mails that they did not produce to State and that we did not find elsewhere, and that are now gone because they deleted all e-mails they did not return to State, and the lawyers cleaned their devices in such a way as to preclude complete forensic recovery.

Her lawyers didn’t even attempt a meticulous separation of work-related and personal emails, Comey noted. All they did was read headers and enter keyword searches to make a snap judgment about whether each individual message was work or personal. All he would allow by way of exoneration is that he detected no deliberate attempt to conceal material from the feds by deleting it, although of course we’ll never know for sure because those unrecoverable emails are gone for good. They wouldn’t have been, had Clinton not chosen to avoid the State Department’s automatic cataloguing of her correspondence in the first place.
