RNC : Even Nixon didn't destroy the tapes

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus blasted Hillary Clinton for deleting tens of thousands of emails from her private server, saying, "even nixon didn't destroy the tapes."

The news broke yesterday that Clinton deleted "personal" emails after turning over "official" emails to the State Department.

The Hill:

Clinton's lawyer informed the House Select Committee investigating Benghazi on Friday that Clinton no longer had copies of any emails from her four-year tenure as secretary of State, ending in 2013.

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), the chairman of the committee, said in a statement Friday that "Clinton unilaterally decided to wipe her server clean and permanently delete all emails from her personal server."

Gowdy, whose committee had subpoenaed the server earlier this month, charged that Clinton apparently decided to delete her emails after Oct. 28, 2014, when the State Department first asked her to turn over public records.
 
Clinton has turned over roughly 55,000 pages of documents to the State Department, though Republicans have have seized her admission this month that her aides deleted more than 30,000 "personal" emails.
 
Clinton's lawyer, David Kendall, reportedly told House investigators that after aides determined which emails were private and which were government-related, an account setting was changed to only save emails sent in the past 60 days, adding the setting was changed after she responded to the records request.
 

“Thus, there are no hdr22@clintonemail.com emails from Secretary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of State on the server for any review, even if such review were appropriate or legally authorized,” Kendall said in a letter to Gowdy's committee, according to The New York Times

The Nixon tapes were used in a criminal trials so the idea that he could have destroyed them  even if he wanted to is bogus. Some of his aides advised him to burn them immediately after their existence became public, but he would surely have been impeached months earlier if he had.
 
The shocking arrogance of Hillary Clinton in 1) determining herself which emails were "official" and which were "personal" and 2) deleting 30,000 possibly relevant emails from her private server should even give Democrats pause. This is the person they want to be president? Someone who runs roughshod over procedure and the law?
 
Well, they swooned over Obama so it isn't surprising they worship Hillary.
