Judge Orders Investigation of Clinton Lawyers for Role in Deleting Emails”

A judge in Maryland has ordered an investigation into three of Hillary Clinton's attorneys accused of deleting emails in the scandal that plagued the Democrat's 2016 presidential campaign.

Circuit Court Judge Paul F. Harris Jr. ruled Monday after a short hearing in Annapolis that the Attorney Grievance Commission and Office of Bar Counsel Maryland Office of Bar Counsel must investigate attorneys David E. Kendall, Cheryl D. Mills and Heather Samuelson.

The complaint was brought by Ty Clevenger, a lawyer who has pursued sanctions against Mrs. Clinton and her legal team in several venues, and who is also pressing the FBI to release details of its investigation into the former top diplomat.

Ty Clevenger, a Texas attorney who lives in NY, filed the complaint, saying they deleted thousands of emails related to a private email server Clinton used during her time as Secretary of State.

It's awesome that Hillary Clinton got so close to becoming president, after intentionally using a private email server and potentially destroying evidence in the investigation.

"There are allegations of destroying evidence", Judge Harris said, determining that this was a serious enough matter to warrant a proper investigation. It began with investigations into her actions-or lack of actions-during the 2012 terrorist attacks in Benghazi that killed four Americans including U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens.

While Clinton claimed she never sent or received classified information, an FBI investigation found the opposite. But said she was bound by confidentiality rules that prevented her from explaining why.

BleachBit is a tool to erase data from computers.

Clinton's email archive was also wiped clean with BleachBit, after her emails were subpoenaed.

Investigators were told an Apple Macbook and thumb drive containing Clinton's email archives had been lost. They were denied access to a personal Apple server that Clinton used for her work emails.

Clevenger argued that the lawyers should be investigated for wrongdoing by destroying evidence.

Bars in Arkansas and the District of Columbia, as well as federal courts, brushed aside requests from Mr. Clevenger, who is seeking to have Mrs. Clinton and her attorneys suspended or disbarred. I've seen this in Texas, California ...
