• MSNBC Panel: Hillary Clinton Proved ‘Consciousness Of Guilt’ By Wiping Server Clean

    When it comes to the ongoing saga of Hillary Clinton’s secret email server, deleted data, and a Congressional investigation into the Democratic presidential hopeful’s behavior, attorney and MSNBC producer Seema Iyer says Hillary wiping her server clean shows a “consciousness of guilt.”

    Iyer says Hillary “was notified about the request from the State Department” to hand over all emails in her possession, “and then [the server] gets scrubbed clean. We call that consciousness of guilt because now you can’t even look for” any emails Hillary may have sent that are pertinent to ongoing investigations.

    Indeed, Congressional staffers aren’t quite sure how to move forward with their investigation of Hillary Clinton after finding out that she wiped her personal email server clean last fall after handing over thousands of documents.

    Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), chairman of the Select Committee on Benghazi, criticized Clinton Friday for “unilaterally deciding” to delete the emails.

    “While it is not clear precisely when Secretary Clinton decided to permanently delete all emails from her server, it appears she made the decision after October 28, 2014, when the Department of State for the first time asked the Secretary to return her public record to the Department,” said Gowdy.

    “So this is something that there could be legs on?” MSNBC host Alex Wagner asked. “Yes,” Iyer responded.

    “Even the most ardent supporter of Hillary Clinton has to be like, ‘You did what? After you got the notification, then you went and scrubbed the server?'” another MSNBC panelist added. “What message does that send? Even if it is innocent, which it might not be because we don’t know and we’ll never know.”

    But one thing we do know is that this email drama is hurting Hillary big time.

    Hillary’s overall favorability rating stands at 26%, down from 38% in November according to new CBS News poll data.

    Just 42% of people believe that Hillary Clinton is honest and trustworthy. And on her use of a personal email account and server, 62% said it was inappropriate; 25% said it was appropriate.
