Yesterday Wikileaks released another round of emails belonging to Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, revealing just one day after the New York Times revealed the former Secretary of State had used a private server, he called for the "dumping" of her emails.
The Clinton campaign is arguing Podesta was referring to a document dump and wanted Clinton's emails released to the public.
HRC camp says Podesta was talking abt getting emails released.Give them that-Problem is what actually happened- the 33k emails "Bleach-bit" https://t.co/B9STuvVVvP— Bret Baier (@BretBaier) November 1, 2016
While document dumps are certainly regular practice in Washington D.C., Podesta's statement about his intentions for Clinton's emails don't add up. Lets set up the time line:
March 2, 2015: The New York Times publishes a blockbuster report revealing former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton used a private, unsecured server to conduct all of her government business at the State Department.
March 3, 2015: Former White House counsel and Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta emails longtime aide and Clinton attorney Cheryl Mills urging for emails to be "dumped."
March 4, 2015: Clinton issued a subpoena by the Benghazi Select Committee to preserve documents on the private server.
March 25, 2015: A strategy call led by Cheryl Mills is held with top Clinton aides.
"There was a conference call between David Kendall, Cheryl Mills and Platte River and then emails that had been in existence for five years, emails that he's known about until at least December 2014, he decides to delete...just all on his own," Gowdy explained on America's Newsroom Friday. "That defies logic why some techie in Colorado would despite a subpoena, despite a preservation order, but after a conference call with David Kendell and Cheryl Mills decide on his own that he is going to destroy public records."
March 27-31: Bleachbit is used to wipe Clinton's server clean and hired IT workers express concern over a coverup, "shady sh*t."
"Starting to think this whole thing is really covering up a lot of shady sh*t," an email sent by either Platte River employee Paul Combetta or Bill Thornton stated on August 15, 2015.
According to the Clinton campaign, the definition of "dump," is the same as what "is, is."
