Hillary Clinton cannot escape the scandal she created when she used an unsecured personal server to conduct classified government business during her time as the Secretary of State.
Recently, South Carolina Representative Trey Gowdy pointed out that Clinton and her team didn’t just delete emails from her server. According to Breitbart, Gowdy pointed out that she used a special app called BleachBit to make sure that the data from her server could never be recovered.
On Monday, Andrew Ziem, creater and founder of BleachBit confirmed to Fox Business that Gowdy is right in his assessment that his program is used for one main purpose. “People use BleachBit for different reasons, sometimes someone’s just trying to clean up their system and make extra space.” Ziem said. “However, in Hillary Clinton’s case, it’d be hard to argue that, on an email server, that she would be trying to make extra space. My understanding of the timeline is, first, she was asked to turn over this information to the FBI, and then she ran the BleachBit software to wipe her server clean. And in that situation it’s hard to imagine anything else other than trying to permanently remove information, and make it so that no one else could find it.”
“One of the things that makes BleachBit unique is that it’s free of charge,” Ziem added. “So anyone can go and anonymously download it. There’s no money trail. You can just download it right now at BleachBit.org free of charge.”
