Hillary, the emails, and critical thinking
15 August 2016
Before leaving for work, I had Maria Bartiromo on, FOX Business News. There was a Hillary surrogate commenting on the “33,000” emails that the FBI had gone through and found only a dozen or so that were classified, and, according to him, what did it matter?
So, let’s review and see where both he and the media, mainstream and cable, have screwed up, yet once again.
Hillary sets up at least two servers that we know of, gets caught, her servers and their contents subpoenaed by congress, her lawyers search the servers using “search” protocols, at the very least 33,000 emails are deleted, and the mess is made public.
First thing that should be considered is that no emails were deleted before the subpoena was served. Destroying evidence after that is a felony. Hillary and her attorneys are all guilty at this point.
Second, in order to get that many emails, the search command must have included keywords such as, secret, top secret, confidential, &c. Thus, ALL of the deleted emails must have been classified. It’s called critical thinking.
Thirdly, everyone keeps talking about the 33,000 emails. There were over 65,000 emails because one MUST count the deleted emails. How is it that everyone in the news media, mainstream and cable, have missed this rather glaring fact. Yep, those kept and those deleted add to over 66,000 suspect emails. How is it all of these college educated news people have missed this? How is it that no one has pointed out that because of ‘search’, almost all of the classified emails were wiped? Especially since those classified emails found in the preserved 33,000 were NOT marked secret, confidential, &c. Wouldn’t critical thinking sort of require that ALL of the suspect emails were wiped, and therefore using the Federal Rules of Evidence, is an admission that they were classified?
Yah, that last bit, under the FRE if a party refuses to provide or destroys evidence, the jury is told by the judge that they may consider the missing evidence in the worst light; that the claims of the person as to what was contained in the missing evidence is as the claimant claims or worse. Sorta means that every one of those missing emails was classified as a matter of law, doesn’t it?
Where are the media and the F.B.I. on this, especially considering that the F.B.I. knows the rules of evidence, doesn’t it?
Y’all, y’all need to consider this before the election.
