Sunday Facepalm: God Can’t Read the Clinton Emails!

Hillary Clinton’s legal team took such painstaking efforts to delete the former secretary of state’s emails that “even God can’t read them,” according to Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi.

Gowdy argued the use of BleachBit, a software whose website says it can “prevent recovery” of files, further bolsters accusations that Clinton, the Democratic nominee for president, had something to hide in deleting all the personal files from her time at the State Department.

According to Clinton, the emails she deleted were all of a personal nature, most of which pertained to yoga and her daughter’s wedding. Gowdy, though, isn’t so sure and wants to know if the presidential hopeful considered emails about the Clinton Foundation personal.

“She and her lawyers had those emails deleted. And they didn’t just push the delete button; they had them deleted where even God can’t read them,” the lawmaker said during an appearance on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom” Thursday. “They were using something called BleachBit. You don’t use BleachBit for yoga emails or bridemaids emails. When you’re using BleachBit, it is something you really do not want the world to see.”

You really can’t mock these people sufficiently, they do such a good job of mocking themselves. “Where even God can’t read them.” No god is specified here, but I will assume Mr. Gowdy is referencing good ol’ Jehovah. A god which Christians insist is all powerful and all seeing. Can’t hide from God, oh no! God sees everything, every dirty thought, and where you put your naughty hands! Unfortunately, it seems software has breached that all powerful thing god had going. Tsk.

Via The Blaze, so take along a truck full of salt if you click over.

    Both sides are ridiculous.

    This is nixonian stuff. One does not delete ones filed about yoga to avoid giving them to the FBI. Nor does one merge personal and work emails accidentally; if you’re a person at that level of government, it’s all work. Are we supposed to believe Hillary was swapping LOLcats with Wall St. execs? This is corrupt calling corrupt “rotten and stinky”

    Oh, but god already knows what those emails said! He doesn’t have to read them! Silly Rep. Gowdy!

    I use bleachbit at home. I’m not trying to hide anything from anybody. Just trying to keep my computer clean and running well. It’s the geeky thing to do.

    Well, first I have to say, I had just come up and sat behind my desk to write my sunday sermon, with a big stack of pancakes and some fine-smelling coffee, and I opened this page and all I could see was: Gowdy. I managed to choke my pancakes down but they smelled faintly of sheep poop, which is a smell my brain serves up whenever I think of Gowdy’s sheep-like bleating.

    And it inspired me to revisit the Clinton email server topic a bit more, over at stderr.

    Exactly. I don’t have anything to hide, but I am a private person, and I think everything on my machine is my business, not anyone else’s. Back in the day, I used BCwipe regularly, as it was the hot software. I keep my system clean, with anything I want to save on an external drive, which is safely stashed. And yes, I regularly back up on an external drive. I really don’t find this blow up to be an issue at all, as ever single prez with email ability has done the same damn thing.

    I dont think it should be an issue. Public servants should serve openly -- and that applies to every president. Yes, they all tried to conceal their actions from the people. They’re all crooks, apparently -- it’s not as if the email systems they are given to use are automatically public -- they want even more secrecy than that. To me the issue is the same as a cop who is given a body cam, but who takes its battery out: why would they want to conceal something that might exonerate them? Because they want to be prepared to do wrong at a moment’s notice.
