FBI Director James Comey suggested to the American people “his” (as if we really are to believe it was his decision in reality) decision not to recommend charges against Hillary Clinton rested largely on his view that the former secretary of state did not show “intent” of wrongdoing. In the face of copious evidence of wrongdoing, Comey argued Hillary was “extremely careless,” but not intentionally so.
However, today’s FBI dump of select notes related to their investigation reveals what most certainly would appear to be a smoking gun of intent to cover up. You might call this obstruction of justice.

More from The Hill:
A number of Hillary Clinton’s private emails were erased weeks after The New York Times published a story reporting on her use of a private email server while secretary of State, according to notes from the FBI’s investigation released on Friday.
The notes include an entry that says that someone mistakenly deleted Clinton’s archived mailbox from her server and exported files.
The Times story was published on March 2.
The deletion took place between March 25 and March 31, the FBI learned in a May 3 interview. The name of the person who deleted the emails was redacted from the FBI’s notes.
“In a follow-up FBI interview on May 3, 2016, —— Indicated he believed he had an ‘oh s–t’ moment and sometime between March 25-31, 2015 deleted the Clinton archive mailbox from PRN server and used BleachBit to delete the exported .PST files he had created on the server system containing Clinton;s e-mails,” the FBI notes released on Friday stated.
BleachBit is a special computer software that is designed to “prevent recovery” of files so that, as House Select Committee on Benghazi Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) said last week, “even God can’t read them.”
So let’s get this straight, Hillary — backed by the FBI — would have us believe that all of this is just some sort of crazy, coincidentally-timed accident? Not just the “accidental” deletion of Hillary’s emails — just two weeks after the media reported she had a private email server — but that the unnamed aide “accidentally” used BleachBit to prevent recovery?
Hey, wonder if this unnamed guy who wiped the server was one of the ones Bill Clinton paid using taxpayer funds
stolen drawn from public monies?
Yeah, our government — and the woman who wants to run it — thinks we’re just that stupid.
We’re not stupid, but we are in trouble if we let her get anywhere near the Oval Office.
