The Hollywood Reporter doubled-down on its full-throated defense of twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton this week, falsely claiming the former Secretary of State never intentionally hid her emails from federal investigators.
In its anti-Trump hit piece titled, “Sean Hannity Can’t Stop Repeating One of Trump’s Biggest Lies,” the industry newspaper suggests conservative assertions that Clinton “acid-washed” her emails has been totally “disproven.”
One problem for the Hollywood Reporter; it’s been proven countless times.
“Speaking to the FBI on May 3, 2016, ‘“[redacted] indicated he believed he had an ‘oh s***’ moment and sometime between March 25-31, 2015 deleted the Clinton archive mailbox from the PRN server and used BleachBit to delete the exported .PST files he had created on the server system containing Clinton’s e-mails,” wrote Politico’s “juiciest bits” from the FBI’s Clinton probe.
The Inspector General’s report -released just days ago- slammed Clinton’s intentional use of the software to conceal her emails from investigators, saying her team “used BleachBit to permanently remove Clinton’s emails from her server. These included emails that had been transferred from a prior server. According to FBI documents, former Secretary Clinton’s attorneys advised Combetta about the congressional preservation order before he made the deletions.”
Sean Hannity spoke with Andrew Ziem -the founder of BleachBit- regarding Hillary’s email scandal, saying she took a “two-pronged approach” to conceal the correspondence.
“Her aides smashed her mobile devices with a hammer because there’s a copy of the emails on the mobile device, then the IT guys ran BleachBit on the server,” said Ziem.
