GOP Chairman: Hillary Clinton’s Actions May Be Criminal


Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus appeared on Fox & Friends earlier this week and made the claim that by wiping out her personal e-mail server as head of the State Department, Hillary Clinton’s actions may have been “criminal in nature.”

Priebus reminded viewers that Clinton wiped the server clean of State Department documents after being ordered to turn them over through a subpoena by Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), who was conducting a congressional inquiry into the Benghazi scandal.

Via Politico:

Priebus said that if the server had in fact been wiped clean, the next question is whether there was “criminal conduct.”

“I mean this is intentional behavior, which in many cases, Steve, is criminal in nature,” Priebus told “Fox and Friends” host Steve Doocy, noting the State Department’s guidance on emails and the ongoing congressional investigation into the September 2012 Benghazi attacks. “I mean, you cannot just destroy documents when an agency is telling you to turn them over.”

Priebus added that if Clinton turned over the server, a forensic expert would likely still be able to capture some of the information, unless she went to “extreme lengths” to wipe it clean.

The GOP Chair said he believes this investigation will be heading toward a court order that Clinton will be forced to comply with.

In a statement over the weekend, Priebus pointed out that Clinton’s efforts to hide her e-mails during the Benghazi investigation have been so egregious that they’ve superseded anything Richard Nixon had done.

“Even Nixon didn’t destroy the tapes,” the statement read.

Do you think Hillary Clinton will be facing criminal charges over the Benghazi cover up?
