House Republicans are demanding to know why Justice Department officials entered into a pair of “side agreement” with Cheryl Mills and Heather Samuelson — two of Hillary Clinton’s top former aides who went on to become her personal attorneys during the FBI’s email investigation — that allowed law enforcement agents to destroy their laptops after searching their hard drives for evidence.
Historically, whenever you have illegal activities, there is cover up. And where there is a cover up, there is invariably the mad rush to quickly destroy the evidence so it cannot come back to bite you later. Some excellent examples of evidence destruction by screamingly guilty people in questionable events are as follows:
- Debris from Twin Towers after 9/11: Before much examination of the evidence of the destruction of that day could take place, the ruins of the World Trade Center towers was unceremoniously dumped on barges and shipped off to, of all places, China. Some 185,101 tons of structural steel have been hauled away from Ground Zero. Most of the steel has been recycled as per the city’s decision to swiftly send the wreckage to salvage yards in New Jersey. The city’s hasty move has outraged many victims’ families who believe the steel should have been examined more thoroughly. Last month, fire experts told Congress that about 80% of the steel was scrapped without being examined because investigators did not have the authority to preserve the wreckage. source
- Sandy Hook School Demolished: The Town of Newtown, Conn., spent almost $1.4 million on the abatement and demolition of the former Sandy Hook Elementary School. Construction crews recently finished demolition, which cost $850,000, according to a press release issued Thursday by the town. Additionally, abatement cost $1.3 million. The process of building a new elementary school in the town will likely begin this year in the late summer or early fall months. Residents voted last October to raze the structure and reconstruct a new academic building on a modified version of the former site. Nothing will stand where a gunman killed 26 individuals in December 2012. source
- Tom Brady Destroyed Cell Phones In Deflategate Scandal: “Finally, any reasonable litigant would understand that the destruction of evidence, revealed just days before the start of arbitration proceedings, would be an important issue,” it reads. “It is well established that the law permits a trier of fact to infer that a party who deliberately destroys relevant evidence the party had an obligation to produce did so in order to conceal damaging information from the adjudicator.” Basically, the court is OK with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell using the destroyed cell phone as further support for his determination that Brady failed to cooperate with the investigation. source
And all this brings us to the ongoing soap opera that is the Hillary Clinton Illegal Email Server Show
The more this drags on, the more it becomes obvious that not only did Hillary Clinton conspire to break the rules as Secretary of State, many high-ranking individuals in the Department of Justice have conspired and are currently conspiring to prevent all the evidence of Hillary’s illegal activities from coming to light.
In a letter from House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte to Attorney General Loretta Lynch on Monday, Goodlatte questioned why the destruction of the laptops used to sort Clinton’s emails was included in immunity deals that already protected Mills and Samuelson from prosecution based on the records recovered from their computers.

“Like many things about this case, these new materials raise more questions than answers,” Goodlatte wrote of the “side agreements,” which lawmakers were allowed to read even though they have not yet been released in full to members of Congress.

The House Oversight Committee exposed publicly the immunity agreements provided to Mills and Samuelson last month. Critics quickly questioned why the two Clinton aides were permitted to accompany Clinton to her early July interview with the FBI if they had already become immunized witnesses in the case. The FBI said that because it was a voluntary interview, investigators had no control over who Clinton brought with her.

In his letter, Goodlatte noted that the immunity agreements revealed the FBI agents limited their search to documents authored before Jan. 2015. The Republican chairman argued such parameters prevented investigators from examining potential proof of the destruction of evidence that may have occurred after that date, and that the deals offered to Mills and Samuelson already protected the aides from prosecution related to their alleged roles in the deletion of federal records.
An attorney representing both Mills and Samuelson negotiated immunity deals for the Clinton aides before agreeing to hand over their laptops.
