In a heavily-redacted document released by the FBI, Hillary Clinton aide Cheryl Mills ordered a secure deletion of .pst files — the files that contain Outlook emails on Windows-based PCs.  The revelation can be seen on page 24 of the third part of the FBI release, here.

“Based on the request of MILLS, (redacted) recommended Bleachbit, a tool he had used previously with clients who had financial information on computer equipment being decommissioned,” the document says.

The FBI document also indicates that Mills would put the files on a flash drive after the emails were printed for the State Department.

“(Redacted) had the impression MILLS was referring to all of CLINTON’s emails, not just those provided to State,” the document adds.

A total of eight files were shredded, the document adds.

Here’s a screenshot of the FBI document:

“On another matter….and not to sound like Lanny, but we are going to have to dump all those emails so better to do so sooner than later,” campaign chairman John Podesta wrote Cheryl Mills a few months later on March 2, 2015, possibly referring to the emails previously deleted by Bleachbit.

About 650,000 emails were discovered on a device used by disgraced Rep. Anthony Weiner and his estranged wife, Huma Abedin, prompting FBI Director James Comey to announce that he was taking a second look at Hillary’s emails.

Democrats went ballistic, accusing Comey of working for the Russians and undermining the election to help Trump, but were thrown under the bus by the White House.

Clinton and others have demanded the FBI release what information they have.

Perhaps they should be a bit more careful of what they ask for…
