    Keep it up Democrats. Keep it up Obama.

    If nothing comes out of this they are still building one hell of a legacy for Obama and the Democrat party.

    Maybe the computers will crash when someone tries to put all the **** they've done in a history book?

    Very likely, their legal hold procedures should have prevented this at the very least, above and beyond any normal back up routines.
    Speak for yourself. Their credibility is so bad with me that I consider everything they say as a lie. It is absolutely disreputable.

    I am sure that we will see for the next 2 years people posting that there is no evidence because all the emails were lost, so it is not a scandal.

    It's certainly possible for this to be true, but it points toward some mismanagement or negligence on the part of the IT crew.
    Generally accepted practices prevent just this sort of thing from happening.
    I wonder what there data retention policies are.
    When an email Is sent and received it is on more than one hard drive, so how many hard drives were destroyed to get rid of these emails?

    We won't even mention the server the email has to go through to get to the recipient.

    I think it should be noted that we have heard a journalist's take on things.
    How often do journalists get tech stuff wrong?

    It'd be more helpful to hear from the tech guys involved rather than a third hand report.
    I may be wrong.

    Then why were you questioning if the data could be recovered or found elsewhere?
